Since the object of any game is to win within bounds of rules and sportsmanship, Tipton coach. John Moses and his small Blue Devils elected to play 'a ball control and possession game and try to be ahead at the end of 32 minutes of play, whether by 1110 or 100-99, however a few errors and the overall height of the giant Tigers of Peru was too much and Peru just overpowered the smaller Devils to the tune of 66-36 in a CIC game Friday night. One of the featured tall men on Peru's varsity was Rick Wolfert 6'7" Junior forward, but he was five inches shorter than the Tigers 7 foot senior center John Garrett (Garrett is actually 6' 11 3/4" in his bare feet and in Jiis basketball shoes 7' 1/2").. Garrett finished with 10 field goals of 18 attempts and 15 free throws of 18 attempts. He too, had 15 rebounds of Peru's 24 total.

Now the Trojans will travel to Eastern at Greentown hoping to begin another long winning streak. Brebeuf, a big strong squad with 6-7 center Bob Wingerter getting 18 markers, 6-5 forward Fred Bromund netting 20 points, 5-11 guard Kim Norris tallying 21 and 5-8 guard Mike Fink 12, to raise the Braves season record to 7-1, put on a fourth quarter spurt to just edge the fine Tri-Central team. Bre­ beuf is considered one of the top Marion County and Indianapolis Metro teams. Giving Jim Martin fine support were Trojan stalwarts Jeff Modisett with 10 points, Rick Cyphers 14, Rod Johnson 9, and Dave Harding and Steve Vandiver four each.

Deputy Director John Finiator of the U.S. Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, State Police Supt. Robert K. Konkle and Whitcomb participated here Friday in graduation ceremonies for the last of six classes in which all state police officers took the special drug training. "There is no community without a drug problem, not one." Finiator said "It is a total problem that belongs to the whole population and is in everybody's neighborhood." He said the problem covers many drugs, and lack of information about .them and their effects is part of the problem. Whitcomb and Finiator both told the state police officers to continue their education about drugs and to work with parents and schools in an effort to provide accurate information. Konkle became the first living person to receive a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs award for efforts to control drug abuse. The only previous presentation of the Eroge-Burr- ell Award, named after .two narcotics officers killed In line of duty, was posthumously to the family of Mansel Burrell, formerly of Gary, killed In Chicago. Finiator said the growing problems of narcotics addiction and drug abuse no longer are confined to the ghetto, or hippie commune. "These drugs are used by your neighbors and my neighbors. This is a total problem that belongs to the whole population and is in everybody's neighborhood." Finiator said "the hippie commune went sour. It went away from love and peace and flower children," He said in the past 24 to 30 months heroin has shown up in every existing commune even though the "flower children" had said in the beginning they would have nothing to do with heroin. Finiator called heroin, a morphine derivative, "that damnable, physically addicting drug." He said that In the period from 1910-1912 when heroin first was synthesized, it had been hailed as a "great savior of the morphine addict." Finiator told the Indiana state police graduates of the intensive training course i n drugs, to- do all they can to help parents and educators understand the complexity of narcotic and drug abuse, "The law people and the school people must work hand in hand," he said. "Until they learn to work together, you are not going to solve the drug problem." Whitcomb recalled the doubts he and Konkle suffered over their decision to pull all the state police, about 100 at a time, away from traffic aid crime control work to take the federal drug-narcotics training course. The week-long training sessions began last July and ended Friday. But he said his conclusion was that drug abuse is "a matter so tremendously important to everyone in this state" (Continued on page six) William K. Tragesser et ux, Raymond E.
