"Despite the burdens imposed on us by increasingly high interest rates for borrowed capital, rising taxes and other costs, we have been steadily accelerating our construction effort in recent years to meet the unprecedented demand created by rapid economic and population growth. We have spent over $192 million for this purpose in the last five years," he continued. Major categories of spending will include phone instruments and related equipment for homes and offices, $13.6 million; outside plant, such as cable, conduit and poles, $11.8 million; central office switching equipment and circuity, $14.3 million; land and building, $900 thousand.

Set-Aside Programs To Benefit Fanners The set-aside feature of1971 farm programs for feed grain, wheet, and cotton should help producers concentrate on the crops .they can produce best, according to Carl Retherford, Chairman of the Tipton County Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASC) Committee. \ Under the new programs, a producer agreesto set aside* a pre-determined number of acres of cropland from production and devote it to approved soil-conserving uses. He then can plant Drug. Conference his remaining cropland to any crop he wishes except for sugar cane and for quota crops.such as peanuts, tobacco, rice and extra long staple cotton. In this way, Retherford said, a farmer can plant the crops that he prefers to grow and which give him his best net returns. Agricultural specialists who helped develop the new programs point out that this greater freedom to plant will eventually lead to the concentration of certain crops in (Continued on page six) Crime In Rural Indiana Among At Pur dud Crime in rural Indiana, international programs in agriculture and horse and pony care will be ampng new areas to be scrutinized at Purdue University's Farm Science Days, Jan. 11-16,1971.

(Staff Ptgto by Eldon Cage) t I INDIANAPOLIS (UPl) - Alcohol, a legal and much researched drug, is more widely ' abused than other drugs, but LSD and marijuana, illegal and little understood, are gaining in misue by Hoosiers. These and other conclusions about drug abuse were present• ed by various experts in drugs and law enforcement today during Governor Whitcomb's first drug information conference. About 300 persons, including prosecutors, judges, educators, lawmen, youth and service organization representatives, attended the daylong conference. Dr. Robert B. Forney, state toxicologist, pointed to the paradox of modern life in which humans still abuse alco­ hol, a legal and generally socially acceptable drug for adults, whose effects are well known. He said persons talk about trying to legalize marijuana, whose effects are little known, andmight be a bigger killer and traffic hazard than alcohol.: j Forney said an estimated 70 per cent of the population uses alcohol. He said in the early history of mankind drugs were strictly limited to religious rituals and other ceremonies, but the hazards of alcohol really became serious after distilled; beverages became' available.! : Alcoholics Nonproductive He said perhaps 6-9. million alcoholics are in the U.S. soci­ ety! as - non P roducers - Forney identified marijuana ' as the most widely used of the illegal drugs. He said there is no present] scientific way of determining; its. use and degree of effect, such as exists with chemical testing for alcohol intoxication. Forney said the active agent in marijuana, generally called "Delta9" and scientifically called tetrahydrocannabinol, varies greatly and this makes the effect difficult for a user to calculate. | Whitcomb told the conference that drug abuse has .reached epidemic proportions. . Lt. John E. Ferguson of the Indiana State Police laboratory .said 121 persons died in 1969 from drug overdose and figures are being compiled for. 1970. He said |theincrease in laboratory examiners in 1970 amounted'to 7,200 j over the previous year. >. By :case load, Ferguson ranked alcohol as the greatest contributor, • followed by marijuana] with LSD moving into third position after, having been in fifth place in 1969, behind barbiturates and amphetamines. Lt.! David E. Summers of the Indiana State Police said new legislation is needed in the area of narcotics and dangerous drugs! He said more definite . guidelines are needed to prevent prescriptions from being altered or forged. He said a lesser penalty is needed for first- time conviction j of possessing . marijuana. j Data Needed Dr. William E. Murray," acting mental health commissioner, said the medical profession lacks "bard data which tell us" why some individuals use and abuse drugs. If there is an answer to. the problem of drug addictioffand drug abuse, perhaps it lies in an adequate program of education, the result of which, hopefully, would be prevention. Closely related to this is the need for adequate drug control measures and law enforcement procedures." Dr. K. L. Kaufman, dean of the Butler University college of pharmacy, said private and public groups are attempting to (Continued on page six)
