POLICE RAID BREAKS UP ILLICIT YOUTH PARTY BY R. 0. B. Events of the past week have brought youth problems in warden into public with city and the young people all getting in- to the act. Some actions were some and some tragic. Lack of communication and the city's curfew once again caused problems and misunder- standings as a youth dance at city hall last Thursday evening was cancelled by local police and the mayor midway the dance. The dance had been billed as being sponsored by the but there was a difference of opin- ion on whether or not the com- mittee was the actual An excess amount of car traf- fic and youth activity in the iness district after the curfew brought pn the tion of the dance. The cancell- ation was received with con- to say the by the young people in ance. CbmpUoatJSte the problem was that the dance was sched- uled on in this during what many churches recognize as the East- er Holy Week. A meeting between the city council and members of the Friday morning brought acknowledg- ment of misunderstandings and lack of with Mayor Harlan Hummel promi- sing the young people a free dance in the near future to make up for the cancellation. The worst was yet to when a raid Saturday night by the local other city the county and the county attorney uncov- ered a wild party taking place by various youths in the ment of the form- erly known as the Steffen Build- ing. Names of those participating in the party are not published in this week's Independent pend- ing a hearing in Mayor's court to determine guilt or innocence of various individuals. A de- termination of whether the var- ious cases will be heard in mayor's transferred to juvenile court in some cas- to criminal has yet to be made. Possible charges may include illegal possession of pro- viding intoxicating beverages to immoral and other sundry charges. Behavior of most of the youths arrested and some of their par- ents left much to be desired as accusations of favoritism were leveled at city officials. Language used by both youths and some of their parents was about as dirty and obscene as one would ever hear and showed a complete lack of dignity and respect for the law and parental responsibility. Ail in it was indeed a sorry spectacle and one that should make all parents and youths in the community pause to reflect on what can and what may be happening without parental knowledge or control. Young people under IS should learn from this episode what can happen to them when participate in parties with older youths. Those over IS should consider the possible charges that can result from activities wch M this involving junior high age We regret having to report this but we did not make the are only reporting ft. One parent threat- ened us concerning publication of mines in reporting the story. The only reason names are not part of this story is to protect anyone who might be imocent and not to report individual charges that have not been made or proven in but we do not propose to shelter those who are found guilty. Tuesday evening a group of high school students met with the mayor and the police force to discuss the curfew asking for more understanding and leniency. A few other adults and two councilman were at the meeting. The students were asked to go back to the high school and work out an reasonable curfew with the students cautioned to look at law en- forcement problems and their own protection in setting up a proposal. It is hoped that out of the events of the past few days many lessons have been learned for the betterment of the com- munity in the future and for Im- proved communication between individuals and groups. 1970 CENSUS IS UNDERWAY Today is Census Day for the United States of America From Aroostook to the westernmost island of from Point on the Arctic Ocean to Key it is the day for all Americans to be counted.
