Dr. Manning J. Dauer

Gainesville, FL 32603

Dear Dr. Dauer:

Enclosed is a copy of the opinion by the Florida
Supreme Court and newsclippings reporting the decision.
A unanimous court held that the July 1 date applied only
to office-holders and not candidates as you had urged.
Justice Hatchett filed a special concurrence wherein he
felt that the court should not have adjudicated the case
because of mootness and also stated his view that both
interpretations of the candidate disclosure requirement
by Secretary Smathers and McCrary "were correct when
considered in light of the framework within which each
was required to work."
I do not expect a petition for rehearing to be
filed. If you have any questions or comments, please
let me know. I also want to thank you for the assistance
you so graciously extended.

Very truly yours,



Albert J. Hadeed
Director
