I Dean Alfred W. Meyerjgof Valparaiso University's UJRIool of law, said his committee represents Catholic, Lutheran and National Union Christian schoois with 92 per cent of Indi­ ana's nonpublic school enrollment. ' t The committee is jone of the leading exponents of efforts to gain legislation to provide state aid to nonpublic schools. ' "Our schools have suffered an 11 i.per cent dropj in enrollments this year compared with a 6.2 per cent decline a year ago," Meyer said.

Winter's first sustained cold spell in Indiana kept Hoosiers bundled as they headed for work- and school again this morning/but forecasters today made their first mention of a warming trend on the way. Although the mercury dipped Jis low as 2 below zero at 8 m. (EST) in South Bend and nother chilly night lay ahead, the weekend. appeared to hold hope for some relief.

Turkish opium is the source of an estimated 80 per cent of the illicit heroin distribution in the United States. Turkey is one of 12 nations where opium may be grown legally. The United States , imports nearly 300,000 pounds of opium each year to make morphine and other pain-killing derivatives. The committee recommended, however", that all legal opium imports be stopped because nonaddictive synthetic painkiliers have been developed that could take the place of the opium derivatives. The committee also recommended Turkish farmers be given subsidies to turn to other crops and that satellites monitor opium growing areas. i County Treasurer Serves As Ex-officio City Treasurer anapolis, 19 and 6; Fort Wayne 15 and 2; Tefre Haute, 19 and 8; Lafayette, 14 and-3.
