Daughter Is a Drug Addict— Tells of Seven Years of Horror for Family 10 Tlma* tfora Id, Carroll, U. Wednesday, Sept. 18, 1957 LOS ANGELES «v-"I am her father," Mr. X said, "But I'd rather see her in her casket than the way she is today." The man. keeping his back to the audience in the hearing room and shielding his face a? much as possible, was describing the seven years of horror his daughter one of eight children, had caused the family. She is a dope addict. "Daddy, I've gotta have heroin —or alcohol." he quoted her yesterday at a State Senate Interim Committee on Narcotics hearing. "And when she doesn't get dope, she drinks alcohol like it was water," he said. Mr. X, the only name by which he was identified, said it all started when his daughter was 16 and attended a party at a friend's house. The friend's mother wa6 to chaperone. "The next I heard was when a deputy sheriff called," Mr. X related. "He said our daughter was ' in custody, {hat it had been a i marijuana party." i The girl was placed in a school in the East, but she ran away and ; was placed in a different school. "In the new school she took her i first shot of heroin, 'just for fun.'" he said. At 16 she was an addict. There was an interracial marriage, a child, separation from her husband, repeated trips to her • parents' home. i How did she pay for the heroin? one of the senators wanted to ; know. | "I don't know," he answered. ' "But if you must know what I think, why — well, I guess by prostitution." ' She says she wants to quit the •habit, Mr. X said. Once he obtained admission for her to a fed- j eral hospital in Lexington, Ky. I The girl got off the train before it left. California. . "I tell you all this," he said, "in | the hope that you gentlemen can ! find some solution to this problem i of drugs among our young i people." | The girl? , In jail — arrested three weeks ago for possession of narcotics.

Tenn. (JPu-Attend- j ance has jumped to 90 per cent! of the enrollment at the city's five desegrated grammar schools aft-: er a week of tension and violence, j Supt. W.A. Bass said Tuesday \ "I believe our trouble is ended." j Demonstrations by segregation- j ists and violence capped by the j mysterious dynamiting of Hattie j Cotton school followed the first- grade integration last week ordered by U.S. District Court here. Attendance dropped to less than half normal at the affected schools. The children returned Tuesday under the watchful eyes of police officers, and all was quiet. Eleven Negro 6-year-olds were in the five schools with about 2,000 white pupils, and a 12th Negro was expected to be on hand today. The one Negro' girl at Hattie -Cotton transferred to an all-Negro school. As the classrooms filled up again, segregationist John Kasper was arraigned on a charge of inciting to riot, and his trial set for Nov. 18. He remained in jail in default of $2,500 bond. Kasper and nine other persons are under a federal court order restraining them and others acting with them for interfering with school desegregation here. By SUMNER AHLBUM NEA Staff Correspondent BOGOTA, Colombia (NEA)— Help wanted, ^male: preferSbly American; for technical aid in agriculture; and 'for .partnerships in new business enterprises. :*, f , That, in "simplified form, the new attitude in Colombia, where both government and private en> terprise have suddenly awakened to the fact that a coffee-bean economy is not enough to make a stake in world-trade. You sense the attitude ,in the old world elegance of the Palaclo Presidential, where the junta government now is run by five presi' dents instead of one. Behind a facade of palace guards in bright blue uniforms and polished brass helmets, trim, dark-eyed Brig. Gen. Juan B. Cordoba, secretary- general of the junta, is all business as he tells you: "This is the time of greatest opportunity for outside investors and industry to get a stake in Columbia." Strong U. S. Bids Some American firms already are making strong new bids for a partnership role in Colombian industry. Henry J. Kaiser has indicated he would like to invest 50 million j dollars for shipyards on Colom-I bia's Atlantic Coast, concentrat-| ing on large tankers, with steel to; come from Colombia's own mills at Paz del Rio. But since Paz del 1 Rio steel "production has thus far! been somewhat disappointing, the' shipyard would be contingent on a Kaiser - supervised expansion of; that industry. j Kaiser is also interested in building automobiles more or less from scratch in Colombia as he is now doing in Argentina. Four otrn er auto makers — American Motors 'Nash, Willys) and one each from England. Germany and Japan —have just gotten their feet; in that door with assembly plants j completed or underway. I W. R. Grace, a traditionally big! stake-holder in Central and South j America, plans a factory to make! paper from sugar cane waste that! would supply all Colombia's needs! except newsprint. j Just Waking Up I In his 10th floor offices overlook- i ing the Banco de la Republica, \ Oxford-educated, polo - playing Genaro Payan, Colombian attor -i ney for foreign interests here, willj tell you: ; "Colombians are just beginning, to understand international trade.! They have not been conscious of j their closeness to the greatest! source of energy and financing in the world. There are hundreds of! Colombian enterprises which could' be developed or expanded with! U .S. business partnership." This is not to say, of course, that the American businessman has been a stranger here up to now. The U .S. private investment in Colombia was 272 million dollars in 1955, the latest year for which figures are available; more than 38 per cent of that was in oil; another 22 per cent was in manufacturing. But men like Gen. Cordoba and Payan consider this small potatoes, indeed. As an example of what could be, Payan singles out Sears-Roebuck, which has made its biggest South American investment in Columbia. Most of it is concentrated in the bustling Cauca Valley city of Cali, hub of Colombia's American colony, where a sprawling shopping center dwarfs even the big Sears "buy today, pay manana" installations in oil-rich Venezuela. , No. 1 Opportunity As the new government's Gen. Cordoba sees it, the No. 1 "help wanted" opportunity is in agriculture and food processing — in new sources of food, in technical help in utilizing variable climates, new seeds, new fertilizers, modern equipment. Bananas, for instance, rank next; to coffee in food exports. But they | run second only by default. Coffee! percolates 83 per cent of C61om-l bia's export trade (of which the( U.S. buys 74 per centi; bananas! bring in only three per cent of ex -i port money. j Gen. Cordoba figures that prop -i er know-how in shifting the ba -j nana plantations from the Atlantic j Coast, where they are vulnerable' to tropical storms and disease, to! the southern areas along the Pa -i cific near the border with Ecua -j dor, now the top banana country! in South America, would put Colombia in a highly competitive position. What agriculture can mean after the coffee has been drunk is already evident in the discovery that rice may beat the banana in easing Colombia's world trade def -i icit. With the crop increasing at! the rate of 10 per cent a year and] a 1956 harvest of 360,000 tons, the; Ministry of Agriculture figures it; will have a surplus for export by next yeari Agriculture may be the first 1 phase in Colombia's awakening. The second phase, however, if you listen to attorney Payan, is heavy industry —and it has to be tackled from the outside.

How to Improve Your Dancing, by Fletcher.

The author, a teacher and exhibition dancer, builds his instruction on a time-motion-rhythm theory f o r each dance pattern. Diagrams of foot movements, line drawings of Wody positions, silhouettes, and typical dance routines clarify text. How to Make and Use a Telei scope, by High Wilkins. Informa. tion for the amateur astronomer on building his own telescope. The author also gives instructions on the use of the telescope, with special sections on observations of the moon, the planets, the stars, and of the sun. Other chapters cover telescope photography.

A Science fiction sequel to Undersea Quest, which, despite some overly fantastic and sensational aspects,offers fast-paced adventure for boys. Frogman, by Marshall Pugh. Concentrating upon Commander Crabb's career, with only an outline of his personal life, a London newspaper man recounts in tense, journalistic style the famous British diver's World War exploits at Gibraltar, where his battle against the Italian frogman began, and his subsequent underwater clearance work in Italy and Israel. A final chapter recapitulates the events leading to Crabb 's final dive in Portsmouth Harbor on April 19, 1956, but offers no explanation of his mysterious disappearance.
