"Florida Legislature Adjourns TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 2.— The Florida legislature adjourned last night with no further developments in the racing situation. Although the Senate refused to confirm Gov. Fuller Warrens re-appointment of the racing commission, the chief executive did not submit any other names for approval. The present incumbents, chairman Leo Edwards of Miami, secretary B. P. Beville of Gainesville, and commissioners Roy Patience of Crescent City, Percy O. Corbin of Blounstown and Ralph M. Crum of Lakeland, will continue to serve until January, 1953, unless the Governor should elect to replace them in the meantime. Any new members would be subject to confirmation by the Senate, but as the legislature does not meet again until £953, Govern -Warrens appointees* old or new, will function without the blessings of the legislators. The offices of the racing commission are in Miami.
