DO NOT LIST CHILDREN OVER 12 YEARS OF AGE Sdtniists Afraid Outcries Over LSD May Stop Research by. tHfc ASSOClAf Eft PtlfcSS the huge ahd cry over the use of LSt), marijuana and other psychedelic drugs has raised fears arnong scientists of control legislation which (hey feel might hafnber legilimale research beneficial to man. "1 have a dream sometimes in which I'm at my microscope and get the eerie feeling thai, .someone is lookihg over my shoulder," says a research scientist at New York's Bellevue Hospital who wanted to use LSD in a faroui experiment but abandoned the idea. "I look up and he's gone. But t see his shadow going out the door. He's a policeman." Some scientists cile reports of chfotnosomal damage and potef>1 tial birth defects from LSt>- though still suhjccf of hof debate—as among pressures on ! lawmakers to do something soon } in the field of restrictive legis-1 lafiofi. ! t)r. Robert Wilson Jr., a Mayo Clinic psychiatrist, recently said Ihal. because of "moral pres-! «ures" exerted on (he govern-' ment, supplies of LSD for medical experimentation were vir- (ully exhausted. ! These pressures diet remove; LSD from the normal channels< of obtaining hew drugs for research, fti the case of LSD, i Sandoz Pharmaceuticals—which• developed the drug—decided it was a headache and gave its supply, amounting to 22 grams, to control of the National Ihsli- iue of Mental Health in 1966. What is the supply of LSD" How much research is going on? As of Nov. 15. 1967, NiMH had dispensed enough LSD to researchers for 50,000 average human adult doses of 100 micrograms, tt had on hand. 500 am- pules. 13.500 tablets and 17.-1 grams of bulk powder—the equivalent of 180,000 additional doses. So far as is known, none of the legally dispensed LSD has emerged in the black market. That market seems well-supplied since it is claimed that once someone has lysergic acid the process for making LSD can te tofliwwd By i a&tlip ifi a chemistry lab. "There is no legitimate concern that the supply fof research will be exhausted," says Dr. John Scigliano of (he Center for Studies of Narcotic and brug Abuse, which keeps track of the LSD. '-If we neecl more, Sandoz has promised to supply it from Switzerland." There are 50 LSD research projects being done under NIMH grants and at least 1.00 other investigators, who obtained supplies before LSD was listed as a dangerous drug, also are continuing research. LSD is being studied to determine if it is of any benefit ift treating disorders which are notoriously resistant to conventional therapy: terminal illness, alcoholism, schizophrenia, to name a few. It is also being studied to learn how it works and what it does to human beings; can it help in the crea- i the dynamics of sUfcp, ifi effflcfl* 1 ing the life of tlofffial als?

FORD Associated Press Writer Texas' city sales tax faces its largest test Tueday when about 50 cities and towns vote on the issue, many of them in an area concept designed to protect one city against another. The city sales lax plan, passed by the last legislature with the fear that few taxpayers would approve it, has marked up successes that seem spectacular to its advocates. So far, 35 communities have voted on the measure and only two have rejected it. The turndowns came from Electra and Lufkin. The balloting Tuesday will involve about four million Texans, or about one-third of the population. The voting will take place in Texas' four largest cities — Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Fort Worth—numerous medium sized cities and a large number of other places. The largest number of communities voting will be in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where a concerted effort was sought to obtain balloting on the same day. The plan was aimed at preventing one town or city from gaining a tax advantage over the other in this densely populated area where often only an imaginary line down the center of the street separates two governmental areas. A tax difference would make little difference on a dollar purchase, but a city without a sales tax might find an increase in business for the more expensive goods to the detriment of businessmen in an adjoining area. Although most Fort Worth- Pallas region cities went along with the Dec, 5 vote, several are waiting until later to ballot, The same area technique is scheduled for several of the i and rebates from federal income larger Lower Rio Grande Valley cities Dec. 12. Other cities of over 10,000 in which the tax vole will be held Tuesday are Abilene, Arlington, taxes. The Texas legislature picked the sales tax as the most practical.

The city sales tax is so written that only those items now included in the state two per cent sales tax are included. Thus, for instance, the one per cent city and White Settlement. Cities long have cried for more revenue for many purposes—raises in pay for firemen, policemen and others, extension of services and capital improvements.
