Wednesday, May 3, 1972 (Empire) THE SUN-B-3 Victor Valley Held Hot Spot for Drugs Youth Hostel Leadership Course Offered by Council mix leadership training course will be held at the Meadowlark Youth Hostel in Hemet May 27-29. The course, starting at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 27, will cover hosteling, bicycle safety and repair, budgeting, meal planning, and first aid. The course fee of $12.00 covers transportation from V1CT0RVILLE Victor Valley is one of the hottest narcotics transfer spots in the country, special agent Donald E. Hugh, U.S.

Treasury Department, Bureau of Customs, observed yesterday. Hughes, a sheriff's deputy here from 1963 to 1967 has an area including Riverside, San Bernardino and Inyo counties as well as parts of two Arizona counties. Keeping track of the possible landing sites for aircraft carrying contraband is a tre mendous undertaking, said. He told Rotarlans yesterday that the United States has recently put another $18 million into a program to intercept such Mexican deliveries. Arrested each month are six to eight persons; confiscated is about a ton of marijuana.

No search warrants are needed if an aircraft has been under continuous surveillance since it crossed the border. In one case, an intercept was made in the Bronx, he said. Tel-Med A nnounces Design Competition Hugh also noted that the normal civil rights do not prevail when it comes to search of the person crossing the border. The numbers of "strip searches" not a new procedure are vastly overrated by the newspapers, he said. The procedure is extremely thorough and is time-consuming.

Most of the flights to the desert sometimes involving air-drops of narcotics do not involve local residents, he said. There is no problem with marijuana in Mexico "because we are the only ones who can afford it. are too busy making U.S. dollars to have a user-problem," he commented. He urged his listeners to report any low-flying aircraft to authorities, listing identification numbers.

But he urged residents to stay clear of a landed airplane for smugglers usually are armed and dangerous. cjrs asm- 'kwm aw Pam Folonis of Pomona phone book to wallboard Fair Paving Job Labor Donated Recycle Project: Telephone Books CLAREMONT The San Gabriel Valley Council of American Youth Hostels is accepting applications for summer leaders, announced Richard Lee, executive director. "We have a wide range of summer trips planned, including bicycle tours, rafting, canoeing, backpacking, and camping throughout California," he said. "These are mostly one to two week trips, including tours the California wine country, Klamath River, Sierras, gold country and Baja California. A large number of one day and weekend trips are also planned." All expenses are covered for leaders of trips, including transportation, food, lodging, insurance and admission.

Successful leaders of local trips will be considered for more extensive future trips in the Americas and Europe, said Lee. But leading a trip is not easy, he cautioned. Heavy demands are made on a leader's flexibility, sense of responsibility, stamina, and sense of humor. He must coordinate diverse personalities, struggle over bicycle repairs, handle the budget, and keep group spirits high under occasionally adverse conditions. Singles and married couples are eligible for leadership.

The leader applicant should be over 18 (over 21 preferred), be in good health, enjoy travel and young people (most trip members are between 14 and 22), and be sensitive to the feelings and attitudes of others. For those interested in leading AYH trips, a rflrt equipment, plus the donated labor, is valued at about $35,000, says secretary-manager Robert D. Dunlap. The crews will be back next year when the fair will put another $15,000 into the project and the labor and equipment again will be free. Providing men, machinery and the know-how is the Engineering and Grading Contractors San Bernardino-Riverside chapter.

In tomorrow's first installment, access and perimeter roads, parking area by the administration building and some other areas will be paved. Next year, a parking area by the main gate will be paved. "In a lot. of cases, it will be the first paving to be laid down since the fair was started in 1948. There's been only oil and, sometimes, desert mix on most parking area," said Dunlap.

The association also will bring in graders later to level off an area on the opposite side of the racetrack, also at no charge, he said. Participating in the start of the three-day project tomorrow will be Jess Hubbs Sons, H. F. McAllisler, Laird Construction, Holland Paving, Riverside Construction, W. K.

Equipment, Fontana Paving, Industrial Asphalt, C. L. Brooks Construction, R. R. Paving and Busbee Concrete Construction.

Withdrawal Of Funds It's Robbery SAN RERNARDINO A man walked into the local office of the General Motors Acceptance Corp. yesterday afternoon and told cashier Susan B. Capel that wanted to make a withdrawal.
