Montana Standard (Newspaper) - October 4, 1972, Butte, Montana Buffe schools help problem children ByRICKFOOTE Standard Staff Writer A third grade child cries each morning when she enters school and refuses to sit at her desk. A second grade child leaves the classroom at will, refuses to follow instructions and throws temper tantrums. A third child knows every obscene word and uses those words to lash out at teachers, fellow students and her parents. Help for these children is available from Butte's School Dist. 1. The district is in the second year of a program design to improve students' behavior and help them adjust to school. Behavior modification, as the project is called, is designed to change behavior patterns through a system of rewards and praise for desireable behavior. The educators say, and can demonstrate, that the program works. But why it works and how far reaching the effects are, can't be measured yet. Currently, two behavior modification classrooms, for grades one through three, are in the Harrison School. The program is designed to ac- comodate 20 students. Fourteen students are in the two classes and six others are going through various tests and screening procedures. County Supt. James Freebour.n says the district must be careful in chosing students for the program because, "if a kid acts up in class he could be demon- strating a number of things and we have to find out why the child demonstrates the behavior he does. After we test and screen and We still feel we aren't sure about a child, we refer the child to the school psychologist for additional tests. The question of physical or mental disorder is always present and if a child is mentally ill, he does not belong in behavior modification. The program is not designed as a special education function. "If a child finds that misbehavior gets attention in the classroom, for instance, we can accept him into the SCHOOL Page 10 Butte-Anoconda, Montana, 97th 65 Mont ana Standard Good Morning, It's Wednesday, Oct. 4, 1972 10 Cents Agnew speaks at Falls, boosts Nixon United Way campaign United Way co-chairman Ron Bartsch, along with Explorer Scouts Mitzi Heard and Rusty Nicholls, looks over a display at the kick-off breakfast Tuesday for Butte's annual United Way campaign. About 100 adults and 20 representatives of youth organizations received informational kits and materials for the drive. Some already has been pledged in advance gifts. GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) Addressing a wildly cheering audience Tuesday night. Vice President Spirb Agnew said the Nixon ad- ministration has increased agricultural exports and put cash into pockets of American farmers. Agnew, who began a six- state campaign swing earlier in the day, spoke at a Republican party rally, sharing the platform with GOP candidates for major Montana state offices. The auditorium was packed to capacity by Republican faithful from throughout the state, including several thousand grade school and high school students. The vice president said that markets for farm products have been dramatically ex- panded during Nixon's term in office. "For each of the last three years farm export records have been shattered. Export shipments of U.S. farm products reached an all-time high of S8 billion in the fiscal year that ended June 40 per cent above the billion recorded in fiscal he said. "If that is a boring he said, "I kind of think it is not so boring to the American farmer. This entire rise has been in commercial dollar sales cash in the pockets of American farmers." In this city, largely depend- ant upon the area's grain- growing economy, Agnew zeroed in on the recent sale of U.S. wheat to Russia. Labeling the sale as the "big- gest peacetime transaction of its kind in world he said the sale will improve America's chronic balance of payments deficit. "Because of these grain deals, some to new jobs will be he said. Speaking at a news confer- ence prior to the rally, Agnew said he has no information from the FBI's investigation into the Department of Agriculture's handling of the wheat sale. The vice president's talk Was interrupted on one occasion by a group of perhaps 25 youths who chanted, ''McGovern. McGovern" from the rear of (he auditorium. The vice president dismissed the interruption by saying, "I don't feel we should be annoyed with those who disagree with us. After all, that is what made our country great." This brought a resounding chant from the audience of "Nixon, Nixon" and "Four more years, four more years." The vice president was to spend the night here before fly- ing to South Dakota. Agnew began his remarks by telling several jokes about Nix- on's Democratic opposition. "The present forecast for Washington is that prospects are .sunny and George McGovern has blown his cool." Agnew said. He praised the Republican's slate of state candidates, con- centrating on those at the top of the ticket. He noted that Sen. Lee Met- calf, D-Mont., has supported McGovern for the presidency. Agnew said he is confident that Montanans will elect Henry S. Hibbard to replace Metcalf in the Senate. The youths who interrupted his speech appeared to be the same ones who chanted McGovern slogans upon AK- new's arrival at the airport. AAcGovern wants dope crackdown Mother, judge attempt to force an abortion By DIANE BAUER (C) Washington Star-News ANNAPOLIS, Md. A 16- year-old Kent County, Md., girl, who was held in jail for seven days after refusing to have an abortion, has been freed in an emergency hearing of the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland. County Circuit Court Judge George D. Rasin Jr. had or- dered the school girl held in jail until she was to be taken by the county sheriff to a hospital to undergo an abortion requested by her mother. Acting at the request of Kent County Public Defender John Sause Jr., the six-judge court reversed Rasin's order during an emergency meeting the day the operation had been scheduled. The court upheld Rasin's ruling that the girl should be under the court's supervision. Sure, they all know about Big Dorothy HELENA, Mont. (AP) The mayor says everybody knows what type of business is carried out at 19'.2 Last Chance Gulch but the Helena City Commis- sion is getting some heat over business as usual at Dorothy's Rooms. Commissioner Kathleen Ra- mey told a commission meeting she wants Lewis and Clark County Atty. Thomas Dowling to investigate Dorothy's Rooms and see if the proprietor, Dorothy Baker, is carrying on some illegal ac- tivity there. In 1969, Dowling conducted an investigation and said Doro- thy's Rooms was a house of prostitution. Dorothy Baker known locally as "Big Doro- thy" was enjoined from op- erating an illegal business at the Last Chance Gulch spot on Helena's main street in what is now an urban-renewal area. "Everybody knows what business is in Dorothy's Mayor Stephen F. Keim told the commission. "I don't approve of said Miss Ramey. Commissioner Ed Loranz said even his grandfather knew what went on at 19'z Last Chance Gulch. "If it is illegiti- mate, then someone should let us Commissioner A.W. Scribner said. Keim said the commission could ask the county attorney to let it know whether whatever Dorothy is doing is illegal. Dorothy Baker's house at the spot came into the spotlight when the commission awarded her a urban-renewal grant for an architectural feasibility study for redeveloping her building. Larry Gallagher, urban re- newal director, said such grants have gone to most busi- ness people in the urban- renewal area. Loranz, responding to a heated comment by Miss Ra- mey on the subject of the busi- ness conducted by Mrs. Baker said: "It was there before you were born and it will be there after you die." She was released the next day to the custody of relatives. The girl and her boyfriend, also 16, who has been released to the custody of his parents, had attempted to obtain a marriage license but failed because a boy must be 18 in Maryland to marry without parental consent. The two were taken into court Sept. 21 after running away a week before because the girl's mother was insistent on an abortion. Rasin heard the case Sept. 25. The girl's court-appointed lawyer, Floyd Parks of Chestertown, told the judge, "She has advised me that she thinks an abortion is murder." He said the couple plans to marry, if possible, and that the youth, also a Kent County student, has a job paying a week. Asked why she ran away, the girl explained, "Because me and (the boy) didn't want to have an abortion." The boy testified, "We figured that if we stayed away long enough so that she couldn't get an abortion then her mother couldn't make her get one." Rasin told them, "The court does not believe it is in the interest of an unborn child to be born under these cir- cumstances." He ruled that they were both "children in need of supervision." Rasin directed that the girl "shall obey her mother in submitting to the medical procedures at Easton Memorial Hospital to ter- minate her pregnancy." He added that the girl was to be held in jail "by the sheriff of Kent County, who shall deliver her to the hospital at the request of her mother." Jet goes down north of Falls GREAT FALI.S (AP) An F-106 jet aircraft from Malmstrom Air Force Base crashed about 70 miles north of here this morning and both pilots ejected safely, military officials said. Col. Ralph Gimberling, commander of the Montana Air National Guard unit at Great Falls, identified the pilot as Lt. Col. Robert G. Colgan, a member of the 24th Norad at Malmstrom. He is a flight examiner at the base. The co-pilot was identified as Lt. Jerry R. Shannahan, Great Falls, an air national guardsman. A spokesman at Malmstrom's public information office said a team was dispatched to the scene abut 10 miles south of Rudyard. The cause of the crash was not immediately determined. Gimberling said the pilots were picked up by a pair of area farmers and a helicopter was dispatched to return them to Malmstrom. He said the pilots appeared to be unhurt.

Then, just as he had three days before, he demanded she hand over the money. "This time give me all of Mrs, Rhoades quoted the man as saying during the holdup Monday. She said he was carrying the same nickel-plated gun he used Friday to take from the Bank of America branch where she works. Mrs. Rhoades said the robber made off with BOSTON i.AP) Sen. George McGovern called on President Nixon Tuesday to use his executive powers to cut off U.S. aid to what he called "corrupt governments in Southeast Asia" involved in the international narcotics traffic. The Democratic presidential nominee made the appeal in a New York speech to local offi- cials and campaign workers and to Ihe largest rally of his presidential campaign in downtown Boston. Police estimated the crowd that filled Post Office Square in Boston and spilled well into a half dozen surrounding streets at Other officials said it was smaller but newsmen travelling with the candidate said the crowd at least equalled in size and outcheered and shouted the senator's previous high, in Chicago with Sen. Ed- ward M. Kennedy last month. At the rally, McGovern called the Nixon ad- ministration "the biggest moral affront to the standards of this country" in history and, at a luncheon, he said "it is the most immoral and the most corrupt administration in our whole history." In addition to the corruption allegation and a pledge to end promptly the Vietnam War, McGovern sought also to spotlight domestic issues. In the New York speech, he said that crime and drug abuse would become "the number one domestic target of my administration" while at the Boston rally he reverted to his previous statement that guaranteeing jobs for everyone who wants them "ought to be our domestic pledge number one." In New York, McGovern pro- posed a neighborhood crime- prevention program that would funnel funds into the nation's 25 largest cities for more foot pa- trolmen, tenant patrols, guards along school routes and in schools and other measures to "begin to control street crime and to allay the fear which stalks every neighborhood in this nation." McGovern directed a section of his speech toward them, ac- cusing President Nixon of a "fraud on the .people of this country" by implying that he is responsible for the 20 per cent Social Security benefit in- crease that took effect Tuesday though he called it "fiscally irresponsible and inflationary" when signing it. For the President to claim credit for the raise, McGovern declared, is "like Scrooge trying to take credit for the Spirit of Christmas." He said the million cost of a program to install high pres- sure vapor lights in crime- prone areas of cities, is equal the daily cost of bombing in In- dochina, adding, "I think it's time to light a few lights at home rather than putting them out in Southeast Asia." At the rally, where the pre- liminary speakers ranged from former House Speaker John W. McCormack. to former Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, several hundred elderly persons had been invited as special guests.

Informants In Saigon report- ed that the swing-wing Fill fighter-bombers, which are based in Thailand, had been pulled out of combat after the loss last Thursday of one of the planes in North Vietnam. U.S. Command spokesman refused to confirm or deny the report of the pullback of the Fills. In Washington the Pentagon said the jets would continue in combat. The North Vietnamese said they shot down one Fill on Thursday, the first day of their return to combat in Indochina since 1968. But the Pentagon said it was unable to explain the plane's disappearance. In Bangkok, Thai officials reported that security forces sweeping the area around Udorn air base killed two terrorists involved In Monday night's raid on the U.S. Air Force headquarters base in WAR Page 10 BOSTON (AP) Evidence reported Tuesday suggests that anesthesia may interfere with the body's natural defense mechanisms, possibly making patients more susceptible to infection and the spread of some cancer cells. The study from the National Institute of Health provides additional evidence to other research which has suggested anesthesia's interference with the body's natural immune system, according to Dr. Bruce F. Cullen, assistant professor of anesthesiology at the Univerisy of Washington in Seattle. Cullen, in a report to the annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, emphasized that the NIH study is not definite proof of the theory. "Although the data suggests this is Cullen said, "the test does not say definitely that anesthesia causes patients to be more susceptible to infection." The latest study was conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethcsda, Md., where Cullen is a member of the Anesthesiology Department. He conducted the tests with Dr. Paul B. Chretien and Roxane B. Hume of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda. Blood was withdrawn from 18 patients before anesthesia and again during anesthesia, but before the surgery. The patients were anesthetized with the most commonly used agents, nine patients with halothane and nitrous oxide and nine others with nitrous oxide and intravenous thiopental and Innovar. Cullen said leukocytes, white blood cells which attack foreign objects in the body, were separated from whole blood and tested for their ability to engulf foreign particles, in this case, bits of latex. The study found that both forms of anesthesia reduced the white cells' ability to engulf the foreign particles. "This inhibition is significant Cullen said, "but we're not sure it works this way in a patient. This test was an artificial one, using the latex, and how it would work with bacteria is another thing."

He said he is counting on "the force of public opinion to bring some pres- sure" on members- Republican as well as refused to authorize the investigation. All 14 Republican committee members present and fi Demo- crats voted against the investi- gation. Chairman Wright Patnian, D-Tex., said, "This i.s just one inning in a battle to lay these facts before the American people...." Seven men have been in- dicted on charges resulting from June break-in and al- ..-ftronic bugging of the I ,fiats' office at the Watergate complex in Washington. Four of them have had connections either with the White House or the Republican campaign organization, but top Republican leaders have said the break-in was done without their knowledge. Opponents of the investiga- tion, led by Heps. Garry Brown, H-Mich.. and Robert G. Stephens Jr., D-Ga., said Tuesday it would be impossible to conduct n public investiga- tion without prejudicing the trial of seven men. Reuss and others contended that the investigation would focus on such matters as the use of a Mexican bank to transfer campaign funds to one in Florida. Page 9 Model City hopes to generate interest.
