Strong Winds Lash Kansas ELLIS, Kan. (AP) - Strong winds battered western Kansas Monday afternoon—just ask Earl Hopp, 45, of Navato, Calif. Hopp was pulling a camper trailer behind Ms car west of Ellis when a gust of wind knocked the trailer on its side. Moments later a gust from the other direction flipped the trailer back on its wheels. The only damage was a broken window and a bent trailer hitch. The Kansas Highway Patrol confirmed Hopp's story.

One immediate result was that his price as a guest star went up. Another was a flood of bookings on the top variety shows. And the third and not least was a part in a forthcoming Doris Day movie, Carlin is a West Side Manhattan boy who does not look like a comedian, and who both writes and performs his own material. In addition he has served a couple of hitches writing material for other performers as in NBC's Music Hall series. Carlin has little trouble keeping his material fresh. Much of his humor is topical and he works largely with a cast of five characters he has created. He can satirize politicians and political institutions by slipping into his character of "Council- Recently elected officers of the Henderson State College Circle K club are (from left to, right): David Nethery, of Arkadelphla, president; Ronnie Walsh of Sparkman, treasurer; Richard Gay of Texarkana, Vice-President; Conrad Browning of Nashville, Reporter; and Keith Carr of El Dorado, Secretary.

Here I'd risked a felony charge, maybe a jail sentence, and a record that might knock me out of college and good jobs. For what? A "high" so low I could have done better on two swallows of wine! So I started asking around. Know what I found out? More than half the persons who try pot get nothing from it. Others admit the "high" they feel is mostly from being with a group that expects it— sort of a self- hypnosis thing. I didn't find one experimenter who reported a real psychedelic experience. Mostly they said the effects were nothing much— a kind of lethargy For Mothers Of All Ages See Our Collection Of NYLONS, DACRONS, COTTONS - Mothers Day Is Sunday May 12th. < that lasts no more than two hours, and often never comes at all. Some said they "understood" more deeply under pot, but pinned down, they conceded they felt about the same after a couple of beers. It's possible that the grass students can get is so cut it's worthless. Maybe the real stuff might produce the "highs" we read about. All I can say, from my experience and my research, is: "Marijuana, HOKUM! It's heap big smoke, not much fire." That's why so many try it once or twice, then forget it. Since I started my research, I've been amazed at the number of people curious enough to risk getting busted, then so disillusioned they wondered why they bothered. Of course, feature story writers don't hear this side of the story often since one-time users aren't about to get involved. So the reporters talk only to constant users— maybe pushers— who have a financial stake, or a real dependency on drugs. These people naturally paint pretty enticing pictures. . .And the word spreads, so the tempted (like me) experiment. Well, I tried pot and I'm glad, because now I know I'll never try it again. Not only does it "send" me absolutely nowhere, but it leaves a miserable taste in your mouth, it smells sickening— and I inhaled so deeply, trying to get the most out of the joints, that my bronchial tubes (or whatever) were sore for two days.-OTHER SIDE OF THE PICTURE. Dear Other— And Others: Yours is a composite letter, compiled from over a dozen I've received on the subject of "MARI* JUANA- HOKUM!" I've asked several teen friends to gather local opinions— completely anonymous, of course. Their reports tally with yours: Except among a few, they say, the general viewpoint on pot is— "It's not what it's smoked up to be," True, anyone who wants mari« juana can get it, but, they add, the majority don't want it more than once, for two reasons: 1, They're "paranoid" (afraid of getting busted), and 2, It's noth» ing much, therefore not worth the risk. NOTE TO READERS: I'd like many more reports on individual reactions to pot, for I think this side of the picture rates exploring. You needn't sign your names or addresses, and your letters will be kept completely confidential. May I hear from you?-H. "P.S. You know, I'm beginning to believe marijuana is like "making out" in the back seat of a car. It's vastly over-rated, For 34 Since the beginning 34 years ago, Hope Federal has continually paid its savers the highest dividend rate in this area.
