Provo High Drug Use Near State Average, Survey Says ByRONBARKER A new survey of drug use in Provo City schools indicates that local students may be close to or below the state average in use of illegal drugs. Noel Greenwood, a counselor at Provo High School, and James Bergera, in charge of counseling and special education for the district told the Board of Education Tuesday that a survey in the last 10 days shows that 83.2 per cent of Provo secondary students have never tried marijuana. However, 7.6 per cent have used the drug 10 or more times, the men pointed out. Slightly over 1.5 per cent have used it six to ten times, and 7.4 per cent have used it up to five times. Comparative figures for other types of illegal drugs were also included in the study. For glue-sniffing: 93.2 per cent have never tried it; 4.2 per cent have tried it from one to five times; 1.6 per cent have tried it from six to ten times; and .8 per cent have sniffed glue more than 10 times. Use of amphetamines, also known as "speed:" 90.1 per cent have never tried it; 5.5 per cent have used it from one to five times; 1.5 per cent have used it from six to 10 times; and 2.7 per cent export using it 10 or more times. Students reported that 94.9 per cent of them had never tried LSD; 3.0 per cent said they had tried it from one to five times; .6 per cent reported using it from six to 10 times; and 1.4 per cent reported using LSD over 10 times. Comparable figures for barbituates: 91.3 have never tried it; 5.5 per cent have used to from one to five times; 1.3 per cent have used it from six to 10 times; and 1.8 per cent have used so-called "downers" 10 or more times. The state averages, last compiled in 1972, were slightly higher in most categories. There were one or two categories where Provo exceeded the average. However, Mr. Greenwood pointed out that the only comparison is three years old, and that only those studens who indicated that their answers to the questionnaire could be completely believed were used in the study. About 400 out of around 3,000 surveyed were eliminated because they indicated that their answers on the questionnaire could only partly be believed, if at all. State studies on use of alcohol, which had no comparable statistics from the recent Provo study, show that only 38.3 per cent of the state's youth haven't tried it, and 23.9 per cent have used alcohol more than 10 times. Provo school officials suspect Provo is somewhere near the state average in that category. In an attempt to determine how recently those included in the study have used drugs, the survey included . questions relating to that factor. Under "last used," 3.5 per cent said they had used marijuana within a 24-hour period; .6 per cent said they had sniffed glue or aerosol; 1.5 per cent said they had used "speed," and .72 per cent said they had taken LSD. Within the past few weeks, the figures were 5 per cent for marijuana; 2 per cent for glue or aerosol; 6 per cent for speed; and 3.1 per cent for LSD. Within the past few months, the figures-were 7.37 per cent for marijuana; 3.3 per cent for glue; 2.1 per cent for speed; and .6 per cent for LSD. Under reasons for using drugs, the most frequently given cause was curiosity, 8.0 per cent. Other reasons were: kicks, 6.1 per cent; dare, .5 per cent; friends, 1.8 per cent. Over 30 per cent of those surveyed said they knew where they could buy marijuana if they wanted it; 19.8 per cent knew where they could buy speed; and 14.5 per cent knew where they could buy LSD. Another 24.9 per cent said they knew where they possibly could buy marijuana; 24.7 per cent, speed; and 25.5 per cent, LSD. John M. Crandell, associate professor of educational psychology at Brigham Young University, was the honored recipient of the Governor's Trophy at last night's annual banquet for handicapped Utahns, held in the Salt Palace. Dr. Crandell lost the sight of his left eye as a result of a dynamite cap explosison when he was nine. Two years later he lost the sight in his right eye and has been dependent upon braille and auditory materials for his reading. Three others from Utah County were presented the Golden Key award at the banquet. They are Iliff C. Jeffery, Provo, who is blind; Wendell B. Johnson, Mapleton, a quadriplegic, and Bryan G. Money, Spanish Fork, an amputee. Employers recognized for their efforts in hiring the handicapped included Dr. Paul S. Sagers, superintendent of the American Fork Training School, and Winston Mason and Fred Rhoades of Rhoades Enterprises Studios in Springville. Ernest Dean, Utah Senate president, was recognized for his efforts on behalf of handicapped Utahns. Reasons for Success In outlining his reasons for success, Dr. Crandell said, "My parents helped me as a child by insisting I do my share. I had to milk cows and carry wood. Whatever had to be done, I had my share to do," he said. Dr. Crandall added, "I've always felt a handicap is just a barrier or impediment to a goal that prevents you from getting where you want to go. To avoid this one must choose a more realistic goal or find new ways to reach that goal." He noted that he wanted to go into law but found that education was really his field; and he pointed out his wife was instrumental in helping him UNITS LOWEST FOOD PROS 1350 1 2nd West 1890 W.

"She took the major financial responsibility while we were in Texas at school, and she provides the transportation needs," he said. "If a person does for another what the other can do for himself, that person is not really being kind. But I've always felt if people do things for me I have the responsibility to be of service toothers." Advice to Others Dr. Crandell advises those with handicapped children to recognize they have a child with a handicap. "A handicap relates only to goals that we are thwarted from achieving," he said. In a word to handicapped youths, he said, "I've always had a competitive spirit and accepted my handicap as my competition rather than people. It has been an exciting experience to overcome the handicap." Then he added, "Choose to compete with the problems you have rather than fight with someone else." He received the governor's award when he graduated from Arizona State School for the Deaf and Blind. He later attended Arizona State University and completed Ph.D. requirements at the Unversity of Texas.
