COUNTY WILL ACT (Continued from Page One) to stop National is by an eviction order.” Saunders suggested that the county might wait until the im provements at the field were com pleted before taking action. With Saunders resuming the chair, Harris moved to accept NAL’s offer of $350 per month from Jan. 1 until the improvements are made and S6OO monthly after that. The motion died for lack of a sec ond. Allen said NAL’s latest offer was $350 per month from Jan. 1 to com pletion of improvements, and if the completion wasn’t by June the price would drop to S3OO a month. "And on top of that/' Alton said, "Bakor wants a 30-yoar contract. "National,” ho scoffed, "thinks wo aro a bunch of nin compoops." "I agroo with thorn." Higgs grinnod, "Wo aro." The commissioners then took a five - minute recess. , It was after the recess that Earl Adams, county clerk, read the min utes of the Sept. 16 meeting the meeting at which the pay-or get-out ultimatum was handed to National. Higgs then moved “that we car ry it out to the letter.’ Bentley seconded the motion and with no further discussion it passed unanimously. , ne —^ Weatherman Says Key West and Vicinity: Mostly cloudy through Saturday with some indication of rain or showers.
