The rezone on property now designated for multiple family-low residence use would allow business use of the land. A Monroe Planning Commission recom- mendation for dental of the rezone was read to City Council members last weekbefore the hearing date was set. The recommendation stated bust- ness use of the land was not in compliance with the comprehensive land use plan, it would set an undestreable precedent, traffic circulation was a problem and substantial acreage for business use existed elsewhere tn the area. The com- mission letter also noted one member, Mrs. Lewis Bakke, expressed views in favor of the rezone. Rites Held Friday Services for Adeline Leona Roberts, 64, of Monroe, who died No- vember 18 in Valley General Hospital fol- lowing a brief illness, were held here last Fri- day. Born June 20, 1904, in Waterville, Mrs. Roberts had lived in Monroe for the past two years. She ts survived by five sisters, Mrs. Vivtan Duxbury of Kent, Mrs. Ruth Caudtll of Seattle, Mrs. Alta Busby of Monroe, Mrs. Nora Jones of Monroe and Mrs. Vtolet Scott of Snohomtsh, and two brothers, Charles Co- burn of Seattle and Glenn County Board Considers Two Area Requests The Snohomish County Board of Adjustment next week will consider two applications of in- terest to Monroe area residents.

Wtldtng and Jerry Sanders, a member of Narcotics Anonymous, answered student questions on drug use, Juvenile delinquency, rioting and civil rights in a program arranged by Wayne Whisnant and Steve Pollack, seventh and eighth grade social studies teachers. Describing the pitiful case of the hopeless addict, WUdtng said the man's body was pin- pointed with infected marks and he was injecting himself in the eyelids and between his toes in an effort to find a place for injection not already infected by unsterile needles. "At well over six feet tall, his weightwas down to 125 pounds when I knew him a year ago," Wtlding said. "He suffered from hepatitis, syphilis and other diseases and just didn't care anymore. That's why he didn't bother to clean the needles. The last I heard he was living in California. He was 21 years old." Telling of another man, a friend of his and former employee with the Seattle Police, Wildtng said the man smoked 10 or 12 marijuana cig- arettes a day and reached the point where he didn't know what was real and what wasn't. "There is no standard amount of marijuana a person can take and become 'high'," Wild- ing said. "It depends on the person's size, physical condition and tolerance to drugs. Some people can't take penicillin.

Talking of other drugs he told of some young people who found a supply of pills, ampheta- mines and barbltuates, and, not even knowing what they were, took about 20 each. They nearly died, he said. Wtldtng related the senseless reasons young people have given him for their experiments with drugs, including "everyone is doing it." He warned that a lot of young people who start out in trouble with the police end up taking drugs. Asked about the seriousness of teenagers stealing beer and wine from a tavern, Wildtng said "taking candy from a candy store or beer from a tavern--it's still stealing." Sanders, who descrtbed himself as a narcotics addict for 16 years, told the students that he started using narcotics when he was 14 years old. "If there is just one thing I could say to you today, it's don't try it," he said. The two men were asked about the Black Panther movement in Seattle and said there were about 100 members though they didn't represent the feelings of the black community. He advised that packages should be well wrapped, without rattles. Addresses should be legible. New postal laws have eliminated the lower rate for greeting cards weighing an ounce or less. Therefore, all "regular" Christmas cards will be mailed atthe stxcent rate this year. He concluded that if everybody in Monroe will separate the mail into "Local" and "Out- of-town" bundles and mall out-of-town cards before December 1 and those for local delivery by December 16, everybody will receive their Christmas cards and gifts in plenty of time to really enjoy them for Christmas. Students were assured there had been no rioting as such in Seattle. Following the assembly interested students pressed the men for more information on the problems of narcotics particularly in the Uni- versity District. Whisnant and Pollack credited Monroe Police Chief Charles Hill and Sgt. Cal Frombach of Monroe, member of the Seattle Police force, for their cooperation in arranging the program which the social studies teachers felt was both informative and worthwhile for both students and teachers. if you have only one , ke.ep this Running Record. r m m m mmm m m m m mm m m m m m m m m mmm m mmm m m m mm m m mm mm m m mm mm mm mm a m mm mmm m m m mm m m m m mm "--Ik m mm m m m mm m m mm m m m m ] Weekly Running Record.
