THE RAFFLE AND THE LAW
(From The Tallahassee Democrat)
The Leon County Grand Jury, which when
it wants to can be the most powerful citizens'
agency, last week looked into the growing prac-
time of religious and civic organizations conduct-
ing raffles to raise money for charitable purposes.
It reported to the public that it felt "any
such raffles as are illegal should cease" and call-
ed on law. .F-,.. -,, -'Ai ..f. -i.:. to stop those
which the Attorney General says violate the
This in a sense is passing the buck to Attor-
ney Getneral Richard Ervini;, but he has time
after time shown that he takes a very literal view
of the language of the law on lotteries and
doesn't hesitate to express it.
He has an almost standard ruling which
lays down this yardstick according to the laws
of Florida and decisions of the Supreme Court:
There is a lottery and a violation of the
gambling laws if:
1. A thing of value is given, as a prize.
2. There is a substantial element of chance
in the contest.
8. There is a consideration involved in en-
tering the contest. (Meaning .something must
be purchased to enter .the contest.)
The law doesn't make a distinction t-," .- ,-
gambling to raise money for worthy purposes
and gambling for selfish, private gain. Nor does
it say because the Legislature has seen fit to
permit gambling on racing and jai alai that any
other type of gambling is allowed.
S those who are : :1' -..; a -raffle have
a rule of ;..:. i.: before them.
They '. ji have the Sheriff or Chief of
Police check their plans with the Attorney Gen-

tery, .., '. in the clear.

ties, he continued, will not relin-!

until they have confidence that the!

Here are the highlights of the

Martin told the Board that in
1948 the 'County Board voted to
support the Apalachicola Project.
On the basis of this vote of sup-
port and similar support from five
other counties concerned, in Aug-
ust, 1948, Congress passed an ap-
propriation, giving the Army En-
gineers the go ahead signal.
Before the engineers can let bids
for the required dredging, however,
.they must secure, : :. the
county commissioners, a set of
property easements granting them
permission to dump sediment on
private property along the river
In Gulf County, fhe engineers
need .primary easements on 16
"spoil" areas (where they will dump
sediment) and six perpetual ease-
Sments on cut-off areas. The spoil
areas cover 40 acres each. '. the area involved was swaml
