It is funded-through the Community Organization Drug Abuse Council (CODAC) and now maintains 170 patients on methadone. The center currently has one dispensary at 260 S. Scott Ave., tut will soon open one on the East Side and another later on the South Side. The primary function of Hope Center is its methadone maintenance program, Cox explained, "but we do not believe that methadone in itself is the answer: ~ "It buys us time to do other things. We make people clean up and not use illicit drugs. Our aim is to help everyone to lead a drug abstinent life."" He noted that those who submit to the program must not only give up .hard drugs, but must submit to regular, un- nalyses and attend regular group therapy sessions. Under^ the CODAC grant, about 500 persons eventually will be able to : be handled by thecenter. Impact aid cutoff may hurt state PHOENIX (AP.) - Some. Arizona school districts could . be left with severe budget problems if federal impact funds are cut entirely, House Speaker Stan Akers said today. The, Phoenix Kepublican said the cutback, proposed 1 by President Nixon, would cost districts with a high rate of Indian students $5 million alone. Another example, he said, would be Sierra Vista. If the military impact funds were withdrawn there, he said, the situation would be "equally drastic." Legislative leaders met with Gov. Jack William today for a briefing on federal budget cuts related to impact funds. Akers said members of Arizona's congressional delegation should be. here next week to discuss the situation. Traditionally, federal impact funds have gone to districts which have a high percentage of Indians, military personnel or civilians working on governmental contracts. The funds are designed to make up for the increased burden on local property owners. 'Dog exercise' C3 yards proposed SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Parks Supt. Emmett O'Donnell has suggested that, to clean up the sidewalks of San Francisco, 16 areas around the city be set aside as "dog exercise" yards.

Carrier OVER 20 YEARS OF SERVING TUCSON Hedting Cooling ' GLOVER MILLER KSTM SOT RODIG'S, TUCSON OPTICAL 3111 * SUi 32S.9401 Until President Nixon's new budget for the remainder of fiscal 1973 and fiscal 1974 was unveiled last week, the Washington staff of the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the National League of Cities was urging a lobbying effort almost solely in Washington. As New Orleans Mayor Moon Landrieu put it, "As late as two weeks ago, we were told by the President's Domestic Council that mayors would be pleased with over-all funding levels." At that time, he said, the sister organizations, which represent 14,883 cities, planned only a fight in Congress to defeat Nixon's plans to end the Office of Eco- nomic Opportunity and the $2.25 billion, two-year Emergency Employment Act. But the cuts Nixon proposed in order to fight inflation and end programs which he said have failed or were no longer needed "are more than any .community can possibly bear," Landrieu, a Democrat, said.
