DECA students stage anti-shoplifting drive ByHUTHNORRIS City Editor It started out as a project for a contest entry. But the series of anti-shoplifting films and discussions presented in Fergus Falls schools by five Distributive Education Club (DECA) members from Fergus Falls Senior Highs School has outstripped its original in-' leirtions and turned into a major effort. "After we got it started, it was more like doing it for the community than for the contest," comments Rick Araskog, who along with' Marty Fritz, Iioma;Tie Kilde, Chuck Gnahn and Brenda Jurgens, organized • the project. The group has presented a film called "Caught", about what happens when a shoplifter is apprehended, to junior high history classes; surveyed junior high-school students on their own experiences with shoplifting, and sponsored talks at the junior high school by county'court judge Henry Polkinghom, probation officer Spencer l.umlquist, Jack Achter and Jim Danner of the ' Fergus Falls police department and several dwntown merchants. The programs emphasized the S.T.E.M. (Shoplifters Take Everybody's Money) campaign theme that shoplifters cause higher prices. The merchants explained various detection procedures in operation in Fergus Falls stores, including tiro-way and fisheye mirrors and closed-circuit television. Law enforcement officials told the students that shoplifting cases are prosecuted, especially if the item taken is valuable or if the incident is a second offense. The surveys tp!d the DECA group that shoplifting is indeed a problem among the junior high age group, Gnahn noted. About half the eighth and ninth graders and nearly a third of the seventh graders who filled out the questionnaire said they had shoplifted at one time or another. The DECA group felt that the survey results were accurate, since all responses were anonymous. But they added that one encouraging aspect of the survey was that those who had some experience with shoplifting also said they did not plan to again — answers which may have been influenced by the. seminars, since the questionnaires were filled out after the presentations. Youngster dies after striking head ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A first grader died at a hospital after striking her head on pavement outside Homecroft Elementary School Tuesday. Authorities said the victim was Shannon Wallace, 7, the daughter of Theressa McCombs. The child died Tues' day evening at SL Paul Ramsey- Hospital, about 5H hours after colliding with Brother student who was running outside the school at the end of lunch break. School Principal Annabel!* Bmnner said the accident occurred outside the school's main entrance just after the bell rang to end the lunch period .break. The principal said Shannon was unconscious after tire collision with one of two other children who were racing one another from the building to the sidewalk in front. Fire Department paramedics tried to revive the girl, whose heart had stopped, and she was then taken to the hospital. She died about 6 p.m. An autopsy was scheduled to determine the cause of death. The principal said Shannon underwent x-rays last week when she fell off a slide at a playground near the school and suffered a bruise on the side of her head. In addition to the junior high presentations, which began in January, (he DECA members have provided radio and newspaper advertising. They hope to take their project to the grade schools next fall, perhaps add television spots to Iheir advertising repertoire, and stage a major campaign just before Christmas, the prime shoplifting season. Ironically, by the time the project is complete, there may no longer be a contest to enter it in. DECA has dropped the anti- shoplifting program from its list of national contests, but regional, and state contests a year from now are a possibility. At any rate, that isn't discouraging the five students. As Araskog explained for the group, now the project is started, they intend to carry it through. Fergis Fills (Mi.).towul Wed., Hay 26,1976 fl Abortioq platform debated ST. PAUL, Minn. ^AP) - DFi. party leaders predict a state convention baitW over a proposed ptatfoini pla/ik sup-porting the U.S. Supreme Court's controversial abortion decision. . The DKL platform committee has recommended that dele- gales at the state convention June -1-6 in Duluth adopt the so- called "freedom of choice" plank. Adoption of the plan will require the support of at least 60 per cent of the 1,220 delegates, and leaders on both sides' of the issue agree that neither has a sufficient number of votes to pass the plank. Ine two sides have fought to a standoff at each of the last two DFI, state'conventions. ' • Jeri Rasmussen, vke president of the Abortion Rights Council of Minnesota and a • founder of the DFI, Feminist Caucus, conceded Tuesday that those who support the court's decision will not have enough votes to gain adoption of the proposed plank. And Carol WoW, a board member of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, said she feels delegates who oppose the decisio^ will outnumber those who favor it.
