TE13HUAR.Y 27. ] 97 J Dope Pusher HOW much the drug problem in the United States, and all western -society, is due to Red China should be determined. •Voices are heard in this country for friendship and closer relations with Mao's China, but with the friendship talk nothing is said about Peking's narcotics offensive against the free world. ' Washington is trying to discourage Turkey from growing opium . poppy and has sought to persuade France to closedownpro- cessors in the Marseilles area. Red China exported $800 million worth of natcotics last year, according to estimates published by China News. Poppy plantings are reported increasing in. Yunnan province, from -which raw opium moves to the West by way of Laos, Burma and Thailand. Chinese Communists are.happy to contribute dope at reduced price where narcotics can be a major problem among U.S. armed forces in Vietnam. Heroin is. cheaper than, bullets as a means of undermining the American war effort. The mainland formerly exported only opium. Recently 30 or so processing plants have been established. Narcotics are now moved out in the less bulky, more profitable form of heroin, morphine and other opium derivatives. • Turkish farmers and authorities of the country find it difficult to^ believe that one small crop, could cause a social problem, of world concern. Until recently the French refused to believe that Marseilles is the world's principal processing center. But Red China knows exactly what it is doing, and why. China News adds the comment: "Use of narcotics by the American younger generation is growing at a staggering pace. In schools all across the United States, teen agers are experimenting with marijuana. While 'grass* may not be dangerous in itself,, its use is all too likely to be followed by a fix with the Big H. The doper is trapped in a habit that leads to crime to get money for more heroin, more degradation and usually an early grave. "Smoking of marijuana and addiction to hard drugs are increasing in Great Britain and Europe. If the trend continues,/ narcotics could threaten the survival of democratic civilization within a decade." ' Red China makes sure it has no drug problem like that it is carrying to countries of the West. Use of narcotics by the Chinese people is strictly forbidden. The penalty for pusher or user is death. But the narcotics poisoning of "imperialist, capitalist and revisionist" enemies earns a Mao [medal. Friendship with Red China is friendship with a dope pusher on a world scale. .]•"•• Change Coming CHANGE in county and township government may not come very soon, but a bill making it. possible when the people are ready has passed, the Indiana Senate by the considerable margin of 33 to 11 and awaits House action. The bill originated with an interim study commission and reached the Senate amended by the County and Township Business Committee at the behest of some county officials' groups. t It provides for a Local Government.Review Commission to be appointed in each county by local officials every six years upon petition of one per cent of freeholders. Options listed in the measure that local commissions may recommend' include: an elected county executive and legislative plan, an appointed county administrator and elected county legislature plan, and a "commission-president-county legislative commission" plan. Civil township government could be abolished and functions assigned to the county. Are winds of change blowing in Indiana? .

The nation's business community urges attacking the welfare mess at the root of the problem— the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program. the problem that" must be solved if the welfare system is to perform its proper function, the Chamber of Commerce of the United States contends. Most AFDC families are on welfare because they have lost their regular breadwinner. To answer this problem, the remaining family adult — the mo- .ther needs assistance in becoming a regular breadwinner. The National Chamber urges the 92nd Congress to develop a new program of occupational rehabilitation at the community levels in our 130 larger cities, where the majority of AFDC families live. Able-bodied AFDC adults must be trained and moved into jobs. The program should include such features as child care facilities, to allow AFDC mothers to. take job-training and subsequent jobs. Adequate training allowances should also be provided trainees, as well as a continuation of -some welfare for about a year during continued, regular full-time employment. In addition, rehabilitation, must be offered to the male adults who head up the two million "working poor" families in the United States, to help them acquire better job skills and great earning capacities. Congress should establish public after - work training programs for these workers which would: (1) help them improve their lot, if they have the initiative and desire; (2) meet the demand for workers with better skills, and (3). open up jobs for AFDC adults. True welfare reform, in place of the present ineffective, and in­ efficient sys millions of supporting, in life, says) ber. em, would help give Americans a °self- dignified new. start the National Cham- Names In The News IEDS STEP UP HARASSMENT ON 'HIGHWAY 4 TO .

' i' • PRESIDENT Nixon's action in proclaiming an' emergency in' the construction industry is explained by Labor Secretary James Hodgson in Washington. The President decided builders on projects 1 involving federal money — about S25 billion — not be required to pay prevailing building trade wage rates. HUNTSV1LLE, Ala. — A NASA-Marshall Space Flight Center physicist has been - credited with discovering two previously unknown one-celled animals on a slide ' mounted by. another scientist almost a hundred years ago. .• Richard Hoover of the MSFfc Astrionics Laboratory made the discoveries while photographing a set of slides' . at his home. . The biological find has. been certified by an expert, in the field. Prof. G. Dallas Hanna of the..; California Academy of Sciences. Hoover said the two creatures - are called silicoflagel-' lates.Both of the tiny organisms appeared oh a slide la-, beled' "Oamaru, New .Zealand: Diatoms.'!, Hobby , ' The slides Hoover is photographing as a hobby, were mounted between 1830-1890 by Cornelius Onderdonk, a pioneer in research of diatoms or one-celled plants. Hoover said he became interested in diatoms about two years ago 1 when '. he was shown the specimens by a •great-granddaughter of Onderdonk —"a lady who is now his wife. ' The Marshall Center physicist is an avid photographer and has been photographing the collection for some' time.' Hoover noticed the unusual animals July 19. He sent photomicrographs, or phdto- • graphic slides made' through' a microscope, of one specimen to Dr. Hanna two days later.- Dr. Hanna replied in a letter the. specimen was previously unknown. . . . Another Discovery A photograph of the second specimen made July 22 has also been confirmed as a discovery. Hoover said the California Academy scientists first thought the creatures belonged to "the silicoflagellate genus Rocella. Now, .he said, they suspect the discoveries may be an entirely new genus rather than just unknown species of a previously identified genus. He explains that the one- celled plants, diatoms, and one-celled animals, silicofla- gellates, are at. the bottom of the food chain. Hoover points < out that silicoflagellates are often found with diatoms. Naming the Find In his letter confirming Hoover's unique find, Hanna said he will suggest the first new organism be named Rocella hooveri in honor of Hoover. Hoover said he will seek to have, the' second discovery named for his wife Miriam, who owns, the- slide collection and has enjoyed the beauty of diatoms since she was a child. Mrs. Hoover, -. a great- granddaughter . .of Onderdonk, and Hoover were married Aug. 15 and are presently on a honeymoon trip in Europe. For the new species to be named and officially recognized, they must be made available to other qualified researchers in a public science museum. The slide containing the new organisms has been sent to the California Academy'of Sciences. It will be kept there as a type specimen to be studied by other researchers working with silicoflagellates. Hoover has been photo-, , graphing, the Onderdonk slides • with his Bausch and Lomb microscope, {earning about his- -subjects as he worked. He developed several 1 new techniques for photo- j graphing microscope organ- j isms in color as he continued the work: Color Fidelity His photography has attracted scientific attention \ because of the color'fidelity j of the photographs. His color j photographs of diatoms and . , diffraction patterns will be j published - in color plates in j the next edition of the Mc- j Craw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology. His article entitled "X-Kay As.. tronomy" will be published in the .1971 yearbook of the : encyclopedia. Dave Nicolas,- also of As- i trionics Laboratory, - in col- | laboration with Hoover has produced scanning electron microscope pictures of di-; atoms collected by Prof. Hanna ir Antarctica. They will be published' in an ar- itcle Dr. Hanna is preparing for the Antarctical Journal. • L Hoover, who came to the. Marshall Center in 1966, was graduated .from Henderson State College in Arkadelphia, Ark.,,with a bachelor of sci­ ence degree in mathematics and physics in 1964. He has done graduate work at Duke University and the University of Arkansas, and taken courses at the University of California in Los Angeles and the University of Alabama in Huntsville: . Lewis to Aid Cleveland In Fight on Air Pollution j "CLEyELAND —The Lewis Research Center has agreed 1.o lend technical as-', sistance to this city's Division of Air • Pollution Control. ' ; Role cf the National Aero- nauticsand Space Administration, -enter will be to help J identify and catalog trace {element; and compounds j found ii the air of Greater ! Cleveland'; determine ' their concentrations and ' find trends or patterns related to the weather, season,, and - geograt hical area. Inexpensive Method Sought "As an important part of this effort, Lewis will develop convenient, rapid and in- .expensive methods for pollutant -concentration, measurement," said Dr. Louis Rosenblum, chairman, of Lewis' Environmental Pollution Control Board. * . Getting Samples During the initial phases of. the program samples-of trace' materials will be obtained from the present network (f air pollution monitoring, stations managed by the- city. Presently there are 20 sucn -monitoring stations . located throughout Greater Cleveland. The stations will yield approximately. 50 samples a week for Lewis to analyze. " . In analyzing the samples, scientists will use a variety .of techniques to identify the trace elements and determine the composition. These techniques include atomic- absorption, . spectrography, and neutron activation. Neutron activation is a relatively new and sophisticated, method wherein, the sample is bombarded by neutrons in a nuclear reactor. As the radioactive sample decays, it emits a specific spectrum of gamma rays which can be interpreted. Radioactive Particles The analyses will characterize the particles as to type, size, shape, and distribution. Along with analyzing •trace elements and compounds, expert will also look at radioactive particles. The information from these analyses will be used to construct a mathematical model of the atmosphere in the Cleveland area to correlate pollution data and predict problem areas. This early model will then be compared -with, .later information developed as a result of advances in detection methods made through the program. WASHINGTON MARCH OF EVENTS- MINH. TRAIL IS COMMUNISTS | DISRUPTING IS A "MUST" I IN WINDING DOWN WAR By HENRY CATIICART Central Press Washington Correspondent n-AS^INGTON—"If Hanoi lost the Ho Chi Minn Trail, they , \ wOuld lose the war in a few weeks." The .words'of an ovcrzcalous Pentagon .spokesman? Hardly. .That MS pe view of Loatian Premier Prince Souvanna Phouma into whose kingdom President Nixon unleashed allied forces I' last month. And those words by the Laotian chief of state best explain • why it was necessary to. attempt to curb the constant flow of nien • and supplies down this ingenious network of jungle arteries that has served as one of history.'s foremost-roadways to invasion. Few people here, least of all Pentagon experts, expect the invasion to be a total military success. Cutting off the Ho Chi Afinh Trail cannot be accomplished in. a matter of days or weeks or even months, for this invasion route is hardly a trail at all. Prince liouvanna It is a gigantic 7,000-mile network of narrow roads, isolated mountain passes and hid- Sce.i Trail den jungle lanes that wind through a -tn-mile iix rttal _ wide corridor in Laos. , * * ? * • • HOirr.ll COUNTRY—So fiercely rugged is the terrain that ; few- No -th Vietname.-e recruits being marched down the trail :daie to desert because to do so would be to invite almost certain ; death: No foreigner could survive this terrain alone. But the North Vietnamese army has constructed a series of support headquarters, well hidden fro'm U.S. B-52 bombers, that | has helped more than a'half million men arid hundreds of thmi-' • sands of tons of supplies through this mountain kingdom and I into South Vietnam and Cambodia. j With the. fall' of Prince Sihanouk In Cambodia last year the j Ho Cm Minn Trail became the sole source of men and supplies . j for Nor :h Vietnamese fighting in the South. | The Cambodian'port of Sihanoukville, now Kompong Som, ! through which uncountable tons of Communist supplies have flowed. 5s now closed to the Communists. . Thus jany interruption of traffic oh' the trail through Laos ; must result in a lessening- bf Communist capabilities to wago^ war in the South. Less jopen warfare in the South means more time to train South Vietnamese forces and increased U.S. combat troop withdrawals. Or to put it another way, it will mean a better chance r.l success for the Nixon administration's Vietnamization pro- i gram'and a complete .withdrawal of U.S. combat troops by 1972. I. I . ' o - * * • CAMBODIA BIG WIN—To'those who say the Laotian inva- "sion will widen the war In Southeast Asia, Pentagon officials ! cite the lesson of Cambodia. ' Despite the dire predictions of congressional doves, that operation proved to be one of few allied triumphs of the Vietnamese war. Ctmmunist base camps and supplies were destroyed. Communist troops were forced to withdraw and regroup. And American lives in South Vietnam were saved from renewed Communist attacks. All tnis is not-to*say that the action in Laos will result in a similarly one-sided victory. The South-Vietnamese are now,fighting in territory long held by the North even though It Is technically Laotian soil. South Vietnamese losses will be high no doubt. But knowledg- nble military planners feel that a disruption of the Ho Chi Minh Trail Is essential to" the winding down of this war. That this uc- tion was not taken before is one reason we are still fighting there. High Lottet Expected In Laos DANCE Moose Lodge Mellow Sounds [ Paul Southard's Band j 9 30 to 1:30 members only
