(iBrclcn C.ity TYIrgruiM Weclni'Hilay. November 30. 1977 I'ape 17 r Glaucoma-Striken Grandma Wants Pot Legalized i WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 63-year-old grandmother in Wichita admits having smoked a marijuana cigarette in hopes that it would ease the pain of glaucoma. She says it did. But Mrs. Ara Cron doesn't want to break the law. She was one of 13 persons earlier this year to petition Attorney General Griffin Bell, requesting reclassification of marijuana so doctors could prescribe it for glaucoma patients. "I feel very resentful about the government withholding this from me," Mrs. Cron said recently. "I could have avoided surgery," she con- lends. The Food and Drug Administration's Controlled Substances Advisory Committee has held a hearing on the matter, but tabled the proposal for additional hearings, probably in February. While the government withholds action, Mrs. Cron says her sight continues to deteriorate. Last April, she was quoted as saying she had never tried marijuana. Later, she said she received two small boxes in the mail, one postmarked Denver. Both contained marijuana, with some cigarettes already rolled. "It certainly was successful ... Oh my, yes!" she laughed. "It certainly was very kind of someone." She said she received the marijuana at a time when the pressure behind her eyes was very high, up around 50. Her husband, Gerald, measured the pressure on a home testing device. After smoking the marijuana, the pressure dropped. "It had dropped to 8," she said. "Normal pressure is around 15 to 18. II was very effective." But after that, the pressure in her eyes became impossible to control. "It (surgery) became absolutely necessary," she said. As a result of surgery in June, her pressure is normal, but she has lost some vision and her doctors say she will probably need more operations. Several studies have indicated the use of marijuana reduces pressure on the optic nerve, preventing glaucoma from worsening. Help our Wheat Farmers Enjoy more products made with wheaf!

Hobby Club Big Game Big Prize For Five How many kernels are on the ear of corn? Count and color them and you may win an exciting family game called "Winning Ticket." Five of these games, created by Ideal Toy Corporation and based on the popularity of state lotteries, will be awarded as the national grand prizes. They are offered for the five contest entries that are not only correct, but prove to be the neatest and most original in appearance. In addition, the 10 neatest and most original entries in each city will win local qualifying prizes. These awards will be provided by Cappy Dick's big grab-bag of "fun" things for boys and girls — pocket-size games, show- and-tell curios, packets of foreign coins or foreign postage stamps with which to start hobby collections, and other exciting things. Entries winning these qualifying prizes will be set aside in each city lo be reviewed by the contest judges in their search for the five neatest and most original entries of all. These will be the winner sof the "Winning Ticket" games. "Winning Ticket" is played on a special game board on which markers slide down to fill blank spaces, thereby establishing the players' scores. Excitement for the whoel family prevails as the game proceeds. To enter the contest, count the corn kernels carefully; it is easy to miss some of them. When you are sure you have missed none, clip out the picture, paste it on a sheet of paper and print the total number of kernels beneath it, along with your name, age, address and zip code number. Decorate the entry in any neat, original way using paints, crayons or cutouts. Finally, address it to Cappy Dick's Midweek Winning Ticket Contest at the Garden City Telegram and mail it no later than day after tomorrow. Names of the prize winners will be announced here and their awards will be sent to their homes by mail. Judges' decisions will be final. All entries become Cappy Dick's property. None can be returned. TOMORROW: Directions For Making A Wobble Ball Game! Sinatra Sues For Mother's Wrongful-Death LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Frank Sinatra has filed a wrongful-death suit in federal court in connection with the plane crash that killed his 82-year-old mother, Natalie, last January. Sinatra filed the suit jointly Monday as conservator of his late mother's estate, along with Hudson United Bank, the conservator of the estate of Anna Carbone of Cliffside Park, N.J., who also died in the Jan. 6 crash. The suit claimed negligence and asked for unspecified damages, plus the two womens' funeral costs and $80,000 for jewelry and other property Sinatra claimed was not recovered from the wreckage. Named in the suit were Marvin Kraltner, who owned the Lear jet that slammed into the side of Mt. San Gorgonio after taking off from Palm Springs, and Jet Avia Ltd., operator of the charter service that leased the plane. The jet, flying in a snowstorm, crashed into the mountain five minutes after taking off from Palm Springs en route lo Las Vegas, where Sinatra was performing. I
