FEBRUARY 12. 1971 a ; L_ ! - 10^ PER COPY 45£ FES WEEK SECOND CLASS POSTAGE AT TIPTON, INDIANA 46072 Narcotics Study Is Offered To Develop Effective Programs A Team of researchers believes that a recently completed computer study of urban narcotics users can serve as a basis for developing effective programs to combat the nation's drug • abuse problem, according to Richard H. Meacham, executive director of the Friends of Psychiatric Research, Inc., the nonprofit Catonsville, Md., research organization that conducted the two-year study. . Sponsored by the Office of Economic Opportunity under, a $550,000 contract, the drug user analysis represents a major attempt to probe in detail the social backgrounds, attitudes and life styles of addicts from lower-income groups living in inner-city areas. Questions asked of some. 6,500 addicts from ages 13 to 74 in the nationwide study yielded over 28 volumes of statistical analysis. The report is based upon data collected through examination of drug treatment programs in Los Angeles, the District of Columbia, Chicago; the State of*New Jersey, New York City, San Antonio, Tex., and Tacoma, Washington. The 136-page document, which gives a. synopsis of the findings, cautions that "although the study represents a typical cross-section (of inner-city drug users), the results are statistically valid only for the groups studied. Common characteristics among the addicts cited by the report include: . * Most of the addicts were bdrn in the urban areas (86%).* Most averaged the same amount of education (10.1 years). * Men outnumbered women 4 to 1. . * Most had never been in the armed forces (83%); 63% had never been married. * Almost all had been arrested at one time or another (95%) with the average age of first arrest for the group at 17.6 years. * A friend of the same age was the reason for starting narcotics use in the majority of cases (54%) with older friend accounting for another 30 percent. * Dope pushers accounted for a mere 2 percent of persons addicted. * Inhalants had an average age of first use of 14.5 years; the corresponding figure for psychedelics was 18.7 years. * The longest time off drugs since regular use began averaged to 12.6 months (this almost exactly equaled the longest uninterrupted time served in prison, 12.9 months). The group of addicts interviewed showed a number similarities in family background;, job attitudes and living arrangements. Eleven percent of the ddfcts lived until age 18 in homes in which the mother was usually absent. Fathers were absent in 39 percent of the homes during these formative years. In terms of employment, the addicts, were mainly unskilled and unemployed (27%). For 30%, aspirations were aimed at becoming skilled manual workers. The study revealed that 55 per-, cent lived with relatives other than their own parents, husbands or wives. While the analysis focused on users of opiates, it determined that 79 percent of the addicts used marijuana"" at one time or another." Based on the average age of first use of the four most commonly used drugs, a tentative progression of drug use from marijuana to amphetamines to barbiturates and finally to opi ates is indicated. The report al-j so hinted that certain personality traits- may predispose some individuals to addiction. For the most part, interview- i ers were ex-convicts. The main| reason, according to Meacham, was that addicts often feel uncomfortable with persons:who haventt had a bout with drugs. Additionally, the interviewer's role provided a job opportunity for the ex-addict.

U.S. Loses Heavy From Murderous' Ground Fire Heart Drive Valentine Angela Kay Davenport was born June 10, 1969 with a congenital heart defect. Three years later, you would not know this cute, bright and smiling little girl has a heart defect. When she was just 17 days old she entered the hospital for her first operation. The operation consisted of making a repair in her heart. ••• She was examined for future operations which were to be scheduled as she became older and weighed about 30 pounds for the major surgery. She was in thehospital'for 30 days. When Angela was six months old she again entered the hospital. This time for an operation to tie off the patent ductus arterious which is an abnormal vessel containing the pulmonary artery with the aorta. She remained in the hospital two weeks. Next fall, Angela will be headingback to the hospital for her third operation which will be the major one of her life. The operation will be to transpose the great vessels which is needed when the pulmonary and aorta vessels are reversed. Although surgery will never cure this malformation, according to her mother, it will relieve the effects of the malfunction. Procedures are still in the development stages. By re-building the heart wall with the lining from outside the heart the heart will be made as near normal for Angela as is possible for her to have. Angela's mother said "one of these operations is-scheduled each month at the Medical Center in Indianapolis. Most of the babies born with this malformation are boys and one out of 100 babies born have a heart condition. Her family treats her as "a normal child." Angela had a check up every three months but now it is every six months now. After her surgery she will live a near normal life. She gets tired easily and she loses the color in her now rosy cheeks when tired. Her mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Davenport, Sharpsville say they are so very lucky ao3 thankful to have Angela with them. By -BERT W.
