And By The Way. . The good guys are ·Hurt.. May 26,1977 GREELEV (Colo.) TRIBUNE 3 By ROBERT MUSEL LONDON (UPI) - Mary Whitehouse issued a progress report today, 13 years after opening an astonishing one-woman campaign against the permissive society, and it all comes down to this: The good guys are winning. Mrs. Whitehouse is no longer alone as she was when she began -- a country schoolteacher and mother who felt she had to object to media attacks on the family and on old-fashioned concepts of sexual right and wrong. She founded the National Viewers' and Listeners' Association, which has 30,000 members. It rides herd on what she describes in a new book, "Whatever Happened to Sex?", as "sexperts, pornocrats and glrlle-magailne philosophers In all the media. Early this year her vigilant members monitored the three tv networks for a week. They found 30 mentions of married sex activity, including jokes on the subject, against 218 mentions of unmarried sex activity, including jokes. Naturally, to prove her point, Mrs. Whitehouse has quoted liberally in her book from the very sex publications she claims are corrupting young and old. ' "I hope," she said, "the wrong people won't buy the book." Mrs. Whitehouse credits Queen Elizabeth with the vital assist she believes put the permissive society into reverse last year. A Swedish producer announced he was going to film the sex life of Jesus here and there was some liberal support for his winning right to do so. But the Queen and church leaden spoke out against the project and killed it. After that, said Mrs. Whitehouse, the tide turned. She took part with some trepidation in a debate on pornography at Cambridge University, where she-had been vlllifled three years earlier. This time she won overwhelmingly .and said she learned the students had turned to studying the Bible. Again at Leicester University, where in 1970 "studentsjwured at me such a flood of obscenities that I found it impossible to speak," Mrs. Whitehouse had a respectful audience of 800. "And when I mentioned over dinner the amazing popularity of Bible study at Cambridge I was told the same thing was happening there," she said. J Who should pay? Legal fees for land-use permit work ByJOHNSEELMEYER Tribune Sl«ff Writer Should persons who apply for land-use permits from the Weld County government be required to pay the costs of county legal work on those requests? This is a question to be studied by the county commissioners in coming weeks after County Attorney Tom David reported that more than 25 per cent of his staff's time is spent on land-use matters. David agreed Wednesday to compute the costs of his staff's time on several forthcoming land-use issues. If those costs turn out to be higher than fees presently charged, the fees might be increased to reflect the legal costs, commissioners indicated. "It (the legal cost) should be part of the fee," said Com- courts. missioner Leonard Roe. Of those 23, some 16 are Roe and Commissioner June handled by his office, David Steinmark said they believe costs should be levied against persons using the service, rather than passing the bill to all county taxpayers. "Our fees should be based on the cost of doing the work," said Mrs. Steinmark. Commissioner Victor Jacobucci, however, said he's concerned about major increases in county fees. "If you get the fees very much higher, people are going to get disgusted," Jacobucci said.- "I'd be skeptical about adding too much more." Mrs. Steinmark said other areas of the county government which charge fees for service also might be included in the study. For example, she said, both the Weld County General said, with insurance company attorneys cooperating on two. Special counsel is handling five cases, with insurance companies cooperating on two of them, he said. Wesf High relighting project cost district $181,822 By RON STEW ART Tribune SUfl Writer District Six this summer will spend another 1181,822 on Greeley West High School, a facility the botrd sometimes jokes about setting on fire just to be rid of it. This tune the school will be .relighted,' with the hope of eliminating the eye strain teachers and students have complained of because of dimness. The project will be done by Herdman Electric of Greeley, which submitted the lowest of three bids on relighting. According to a spokesman for the engineers who designed the relighting, result will be 70-foot- candle lighting in nearly all classroom*. Plotteville mm is found guilty in weapons case John Jesse Agriplno of Platteville was found guilty of a charge of prohibited used of a weapon by Judge Jonathan W. Hays in District Court after the defendant entered a plea of no contest to the charge. Judge Hays gave Agripino permission to apply for probation and continued the case to July 11. Agripino, who originally was charged with menacing with a deadly weapon, was accused in the prohibited use of a weapon charge of possessing a weapon Feb. 6 while intoxicated. William Fharo, deputy district attorney, said Platteville Police Officers Larry Vail and Koleen Odenbaugh responded to a report of a disturbance at a bar. When they arrived there, they found Agripino was drunk and the manager wanted him to leave. The officers talked to the defendant and Agripino left the bar, Pharo said. However, later the defendant called the police department from his home and said he wanted to talk to the officers, Pharo added. When the officers arrived at the home, Pharo said, the defendant ran outside, reached Into his car and picked up a pellet gun. Vail took the gun away from the defendant, he concluded. Firemen answer two minor calls Greeley firemen answered only two minor calls Wednesday, to wash gasoline from a street and to give aid to an elderly man who fainted. Firemen went to the Gloria Christie Church, 3404 W. 18th .St., when a 70-year-old man apparently fainted. The man was conscious when the firemen arrived, however, and told firemen he didn't need help. . At 3:20 p.m., firemen responded to a report of a car leaking gasoline in the 2000 block of 8th Street. The car was gone when firemen arrived, but the gasoline remained, which they wanhed from the street. The Samoa Island group was divided in 1699 into American Samoa and what later became independent Western Samoa.
