to Hnuula yesterday afternoon and
Chairman Quinn states that tho officials
looked !nto tho matter thorough'

rice-growers as to securing rights of

they hnd had to tho proposed

in doubt as to whether they would
be properly reimbursed.
It was made clear to them that their
floors would be relocated on their lands
further back from tho beach. Tho original
locations wore decided upon by
the growers becauso of the wind which
aided in clearing tho chad from tho
