E2-Palm Beach Post, Wednesday, December 8, 1976 Pot-Smoking Mayor Gets Flak From Constituents MILLSTONE, N.J. (AP) - Some residents of this Somerset County town think their mayor, arrested twice on marijuana charges, has become, well, a millstone around its neck. About 180 residents signed a petition calling for Mayor Gail Anglada, 44, to resign the unpaid post. They said she is giving Millstone a bad name. They presented the signatures at a borough council meeting last week. Mrs. Anglada was arrested in July 1974 and convicted of possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. She was arrested last month and charged with possession and intent to distribute 2 pounds of marijuana. But Ned Cohn, borough attorney, said there may be no way to remove Mrs. Anglada. Toys- From Bl- However, Mrs. Skaggs warned Model RM1 w. Model C20S Model CAP-3 U.L. Listed Brother - selling for $12.88 and advertised as "It's a boy, a real boy!" also is raising eyebrows. While retailers say both dolls are selling like "hot cakes,", most still long for the days when dolls were discreetly sexless. For older children and parents with plenty to spend, there is the television version of Ping-Pong. The brand sold . at Jefferson's is called Telestar and sells for about $50. The game plugs into any television set and operates on batteries. Proving there is nothing sacred in the toy world, the Parker Brothers game of Monopoly was toppled from its long-held position as the best-selling game in the country by a bright blue shark. Jaws, which challenges players to gingerly remove a strange assortment of objects from the jaws of the shark without causing them to snap (safely) on the fingers, is the top-selling game in the United States. that well-known toy companies are subcontracting many of their toys to manufacturers overseas. "While they are supposed to adhere to the same standards as those made in this country, the inspection system is haphazard, so you should be careful when buying them." Modern technology, according to Harry Metzeer, manager of Lionel Play world Toys and Sports Goods, 1722 N. Military Trail in West Palm Beach, is responsible for many of the safety improvements in toy manufacturing. Instead of the old dart shooting rifle with the easily removable suction cup ends, Ideal has come up with Tin Can Alley, an electronic rifle and target setup which shoots with a beam of light. The set sells for $29.88. The dart board, which has turned many a mother's hair prematurely gray, now uses balls covered with a sticky material called Velcro instead of dangerous darts. The game is called Ball Darts, sells for $5.29 and is made by Synergistics Corp. The contribution of modern technology to safety improvements is negligible, however, when compared U its contribution to the world of retailing. "What are the best-selling toys this year? Anything that's advertised on television, that's what. We can't keep those items in the store," Metzeer said. These items include a regular chorus line of dolls - the gionic Woman, the Bionic Man, Cher, Fon-zie and all the accessories that go with each. They also include a controversial toy known as Archie Bunker's grandson, Baby Joey Spivac, described on the box as a physically correct male.
