Time* Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Nov. 18, 1970 • Drugs (Continued From Page 1) : i Relatives Attend Denver Wedding (Times Herald News Service) MANNING. — A number of area relatives attended, the wedding of Lanice Gehlsen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Louie Gehlsen of Wesfcside and Larry Meier at Denver, Iowa on Oct. 24. Guests in the Dale VoHstedt home on Wednesday evening, in observance : of Keith's birthday were Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Genzen, Mrs. Katherine Vollstedt and the Larry Genzen family. Guests in the Earl Blohm home on Saturday evening in observance of Mr. Blolhm's birthday were Mr. and Mrs. Ray Pratt, Mr. and Mrs. Arved Stangl and Pvt. Dan Pratt of Fort Riley, Kan. Wednesday afternoon guests in the W. J. Kruse home included Miss Henrietta Steiner of Chicago.

There was a medicine cabinet full of uppers and downers right in my own home." Education is the best preventive measure, ali panel members agreed. "But you (the parents) have to know the facts. Don't get falsified facts. Sometimes its not what you say, but how you say it," panelists suggested. Government bulletins were cited as a good source of straight facts. Truth seems to be the medium through which these young people can best tell their story, and make their point. "Sure when you're high, and the world is beautiful, drugs are great, but the social price you have to pay is too high," one young man said. He stated that he would tell anyone who was using marijuana, to quit because it's illegal. Once a young person is put in jail, he learns his lesson — from the hardened criminal. One panelist said, "By the time I was in jail 15 minutes, I had learned how to crack a safe." Many felt if rehabilitation had been available when they were arrested on a first offense, there would be fewer repeaters. Panelists stressed the point that drugs are everywhere, and everyone can get them. When asked where a young person could go that night to get marijuana, one former user said a teenager could probably go to his best friend and get a joint for free. Why free? Marijuana is a social drug; "It's no fun to get high by yourself." Another panel member suggested that he could get marijuana in the room where the meeting was held for the same price, and if not actually in that room, someone there would know where to get it. "Drugs are not just a youth problem; it involves everyone, from the grandmothers down." Others suggested local gathering places as good places to find drugs. Panelists also said a pusher won't come up to a stranger. "Nine times out of ten, a friend turns you on first." One panelists estimated from the students they had seen and talked with Tuesday that "between 25 and 50 per cent of Carroll County youths were turning on with drugs." Crimes committed to finance the high price of their habits was what caused many of these young people to be arrested. One young woman was spending $150 a day to keep herself normal. "I could have been shooting $2,000 a day if I had the money." Many said they didn't know how to straighten themselves out, but since entering their various institutions, they have received such good help, and now feel they have control over themselves and their problem. I The panel estimated they had reached about 950 young people Tuesday, and said they would be glad to come back to talk with any interested group. 4 No Strike' Clause Dropped by Board IOWA CITY (AP) - The Iowa City School Board agreed Tuesday night to drop a "no strike" clause in the basic ground rules for a contract with teachers. The "no strike" clause was approved by the school board at the insistance of board member Dr. Russell Goss, who is chairman of the University of Iowa department of political science. The teachers, members of the Iowa City Educators Association, were sent ballots last week by Thomas Mi Martin, executive secretary of the ICE A, to find out how they felt about the proposal. At a meeting Tuesday night between the school board and the ICEA, the school officials were told that 247 of 438 teachers said the agreement with the Iowa City Community School District is acceptable if the no strike provision is eliminated. Another 112 persons said the agreement was okay with the no strike provision. The others objected to the agreement for other reasons. After the board received the vote, members said they would drop the clause because a majority of teachers objected to it. The proposed clause read: The ICEA shall "not strike, or engage in, or support or encourage any concerted refusal to render regular services to the school district or engage in or support any activities which would disrupt the normal operation of the schools." ' In a statement to the board, presented by Ralph Delozier, the ICEA said that in view of excellent communication with the board in the past the educators were "stunned and disappointed that the board proposed the no-strike provision." They said its "inclusion implies a lack of good faith in the educators of this district and will place a cloud on the future good relations" with the board. They also said "since Iowa law now provides that public employe strikes are illegal in the state, to include a pledge to obey existing law is superfluous." • Campus (Continued From Page 1) GOVERNOR RESIGNED FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) In 1862 Beriah Magoffin resigned as governor of Kentucky because of this sympathies for the South in the Civil War. He was succeeded by James F. Robinson. last spring." "The time has come when we must win back our country... America," the 33-year-old film s.tar said. "It can only be won back on the campus, on the street and on the military bases by organizing from within." Speaking in conjunction with Iowa's controversial lecturer series, Miss Fonda labeled President Nixon as "something from another planet who has shown that dialogue is not possible and the system is closed to anyone who wants to get to the roots of the problem." The actress condemned Nixon's recent five point Vietnam peace plan as a "deliberate attempt to sabotage the Paris peace talks," and noted, through reference to a recent Gallup poll, that opposition to the Vietnam war has grown to 61 per cent. "Despite the distortions and the half truths from the White House, the goals of the war have not changed, only the tactics have," she declared. "And the tactics have only changed because of what has happened to the American GI. There is a new kind of soldier in Vietnam—they're not like their fathers and they're not John Wayne freaks. They don't want any more war and they don't see any reason for dying." Aside from the Gi movement, Miss Fonda called for support of anti-ROTC campaigns and demands of the Black Panther, women's liberation and homosexual liberation movements, as well as amnesty for "our brothers who have fled to Canada and other foreign countries and all political prisoners." She also condemned war research on campus and asked students to back. programs which recruit students from minority groups. "We must find ways to relate to the community," she said. "We must act. We know. We are prepared."

The commissioners previously were empowered to inspect and classify lands in the annexation as adopted and filed the classification and reclassification of each 40-acre tract and each tract of less than 40- acres last August. The formal resolution, adopted here Wednesday, said, "the engineer's report. recommending the annexation of additional lands to Drainage District No. 23, dated August 26, 1968, be hereby adopted and Drainage District No. 23, Carroll County, Iowa, is hereby established with the boundaries as set forth in said engineer's report as herein amended." Howard Watts, engineer, explained the percentage assessment schedule, and Arthur Minnich, Carroll attorney representing the trustees, told the group assembled at the hearing that drainage assessments in the past have never gone over 20 per cent.

Social Security Questions and Answers on Social Security Problems —— By Pick Wieskamp (The Dally Times Herald has made arrangements with the Di 's Moines office of the Social Security Administration to an- swef questions for our readers about social security and medi­ care. Send your questions to Dick Wieskamp, Field Representative, Room 293, Federal Building, 210 Walnut Street, Pes Moines, Iowa 50308.) QUESTION: I realize a person can only earn $1,680 and still draw on social security checks. Does the year for purposes of the $1,680 begin with the month of a person's birthday, the month the first social security check is paid for, or does it start with January? ANSWER: The year for purposes of the $1,680 is a calendar year, January through December. The person who retires in mid-year must count all earnings in that year before his retirement t o w a r d s 1 the $1,680. However, benefits would still be payable in each of the remaining months of the year as long as he did not earn $140 in each of these months. QUESTION: I have always lived in Iowa and got my : medi­ care card in Iowa. Can I receive medicare help outside the state of Iowa? ANSWER: Yes indeed. Your Medicare Card is acceptable for services anywhere in the 50 states of the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam or American Samoa. Under certain conditions, emergency hospital services in an adjacent foreign country are also covered. QUESTION: Should I put my Cub Scout Pack Has Film at Meeting A color sound film, "For God and. My Country" was shown at the November meeting of Cub Scout Pack 113 Tuesday night at the First United Methodist Church. It depicted a Boy Scout camping jamboree at Valley Forge, Pa. Flag ceremonies were conducted by Den 1. Cubmaster Donald Jones called on each boy to tell of his individual or den activities. Rex Reser, assistant cubmaster, read the list of awards earned by the boys, which they will receive next month. R. L. Schonberger, Webelos leader, directed games before refreshments were served. Cookies were provided by Webelos' mothers. In addition to the presentation of awards, the December pack meeting will feature a skit by Den 1. Den 2 will be in charge of refreshments. RIVER TRIPS DENER (AP) - Gil Hunter,. 72, a retired official of the Colorado Game, Fish and Parks Department, recently made his 33rd float trip down the Green River in Utah and Colorado. Medicare Card in my lock box? Answer: Definitely not. You should carry your card with you. If you lose your card, you can obtain another by contacting your social security office. More important, - if you should need emergency hospital or medical attention, your med­ icare number would be required. QUESTION: A friend of mine who has changed jobs a lot says he checks his social security record frequently to make sure it is correct. Can he really do this? / ANSWER: Yes. Your friend is wise to check on the accuracy of his social security record, especially since he changes jobs frequently. If you change jobs often, it's a good idea to ask the Social Security Administration to send you a statement of your earnings every 3 years. The statement shows your total earnings under social security, including any self-employment you may have had, and basic pay for active duty in the armed forces. Of course, earnings you might have in a recent period will not appear on the statement because of the time needed to get the records from the Internal Revenue Service to the Social Security Administration and into the individual records. Your social security office can give you a post card form (Request for Statement of Earnings) to use in asking for the earnings statement.
