But the bats are still swinging, the balls still flying, and the legs still running for that base, keeping the magic of the fleeting summer alive. Groups of kids are still getting together to "toss a few" or to play a quick game, and this Is the essence of summertime and boyhood. Summer is half over and their boyhood will be over before you know it too, but the memories will linger long. * * * * M.P.

"We held on by our fingertips," Gerald Surfus said Thursday as he recalled the 24 hours he and nine members of his family clung to an overturned boat in high seas. "1 just kept talking to stop them ailing asleep," Surfus said, adding that he, his wife, parents and six children chat- ted and even sang songs as they waited to be rescued. 'It wasa nightmare ... sheer hell." Surfus, 38, a Sarasota attor- ney, recalled the incident as he sat in a hospital bed. His 26-foot fishing boat broke apart Tuesday and sank while the family was returning to Key West from the Dry Tor- tugas islands after a day's out- ing, he said. "We hit a five-foot wave," Surfus said. "The front of the boat split open and we went down in 90 seconds." Surfus said he managed to get four children into life jack- ets before the boat flipped over about 30 miles west of Key West in the Gulf of Mexico. "Some ...

All that's required are nerves of steel, absolute faith in oneself and planning, planning, plan- ning. With $900, ambition, enthusi- asm and some good ideas, Claudia Jessup and Genie Chipps got out of the aspiring actress business and into a new service business they called Su- pergirls Enterprises, Ltd They have not been success- ful beyond their wildest dreams, but at least they have a long list of business clients and a plus balance at their bank "When we breezed into busi- ness there was no pre-plan- ning," said Claudia. "We had an idea and boom — we had a telephone, some assignments and we fell in love with the business. That isn't the way we'd do it now." Four years later, after many inquiries from women who would like to start a business of their own, "We thought we'd write a book about some of the th...

THURSDAY, JULY 19, 1973 THE RIO GRANDE HERALD PAGE 8 Farm Groups Charge Price Freeze Hurts Billionaire Hughes Master Of Disguise WASHINGTON - Farm groups mostly say that the price freeze is damaging agri- culture each 'jay it continues, while many urban members of Congress say the White House should keep being tough if it wants to curb inflation. The National Council of Coop- eratives is among many fiirm groups which have denounced the freeze. Donald E. Graham, general counsel for the co-op organizition, summed up many of the feelings: "There's just no way that a fiirmer can be forced to pro- duce for a loss, or a packer or processor to can or preserve when each unit turned out brings him closer to bank- ruptcy." Graham's comments were in a letter this week to John T. Dunlop, director of the Cost of Living Council. Graham urged that the freeze be thawed and new Phase 4 regulations is- sued to include the following: — Food processors should be allowed to pass tlirough to buy- ers any...

Novi the Mitch trial testimony that sent 20 persons to their deaths is finally being published. An old English record of courtroom testimony details the fear that gripped the village in 1692 when te^n-age girls said they'd been put under spells.

The world's longest railroad tunnel runs 12.3 miles from S i m p 1 o n , Switzerland, into Italy. Inflated lumber prices may soon make oak floors In homes as scarce as T-bones In the family freezer. In the last year alone, the cost of No. 1 common grade oak floors has about doubled. Better grades, select red oak and clear red oak, command a premium. Faced with this situation, many homeowners are seek- ing alternatives. Some people are turning to wood look-alikes that retain much of the beauty of the na- tural material but cost less. Resilient flooring manufac- turers are moving out of the kitchen with wood-styled vinyls suitable for family rooms and even more upscale settings. That's because more sophis- ticated manufacturing methods are permitting the resilient makers to turn out sheet vinyl fl...
