By Ray Hubbard Ente Pri state writer free running Anima pets throughout Guilford county probably Are going to have their wide open ranges fenced sometime during the coming Spring. At least that is the intention of a special committee whose proposals for stricter animal control Are now being studied by authorities of High Point Guilford county and Greensboro. Hannah Adams vice president of the Guilford county humane society and member of the special committee Sud today that she expects recommendations will be presented to the respective governing bodies sometime in March. The special committee made up of one representative from the City councils of High Point and Greensboro one from the Board of county commissioners and three from the Guilford humane society. Has been working for the past four months to draw up uniform animal control ordinances f o r application throughout the county. Mrs. Adams declined today to detail specific proposals under study but did say that the consensus of the committee a is that something has to be done to Deal with the animal population explosion we have tried to bring uniformity to controls that can be made effective All Over the county a she said a we Are trying to come up with something which can be enforced a the pet control problem which has for years cropped up from time to time resurfaced Here last october when a High Point youth was injured As the result of a motorcycle Accident caused by a dog. Subsequent revelations by the humane society of animal abuse in the City led to the appointment of councilman James Pearce to the special committee on animal control. The humane St Kiety said then and still contends that Lack of enforcement of control ordinances has been a major problem but mrs. Adams said today that Lack of uniformity throughout the county also contributes greatly to poor enforcement. There is a great variance in the control measures in effect and this causes enforcement to break Down re said. Pearce in reporting to City Council la.-1 week on status of his work with the committee said that High Points animal control ordinances had been found to be Superior to those in Force in Greensboro and the county now we have to Fin i a Way to enforce them. He said among other restriction High Point has an ordinal 1 which requires dog owners to confine their pets on their premises except when on a Leash this ordinance is ignored by Many in the City. Mrs. Adams agreed today that High Point s ordinances on animal control Are More understandable than those of the other two governing bodies a but even some of these Ere she said. Humane societies throughout Hie nation Are carrying out campaigns aimed at Hilting the animal population explosion which now produces an estimated 10.0uo new born pets every hour 24 hours a Day.

Richard Leader Tom Johnson and William Ijames Are vying for one two democratic nominations repeal of marijuana Law opposed by Bryan Haislip Assn. Of afternoon dailies Raleigh a North Carolina leaders in the War against drugs feel that repealing Laws against the use of marijuana would be a Retreat in the Battle. A i done to see How we can let the bars Down on any dangerous drug a said Roy Epps director of the . Drug authority a Elf you open the Gate to one How will you keep it closed or others a How harmful marijuana is must be determined b y scientific research said ski director Charles Dunn. Whether it should be legalized. He added ought to be decided on the basis of scientific findings. Not opinion or politics. A frankly i done to favor repeal of marijuana Laws a he added. Dunn and Epps dissented from the recommendation of John h Finlator. Recently retired Deputy director of the Federal Bureau of narcotics and dangerous drugs that criminal penalties against marijuana use be abolished. Finlator. A North Carolina native said last week that marijuana should be classed with alcohol and tobacco As a socially acceptable drug. A their potential harm is limited and Falls within that area which the people of this country have apparently decided is acceptable a he said. Both alcohol and tobacco have proven More harmful than marijuana Finlator argued. The scientist rather than the policeman must decide that said Dunn. Even if its the Case he asked a can we afford another problem like alcohol a the Federal government has research projects going on marijuana he noted and valid conclusions on the drugs effects will have to wait on their completion. Epps said there is an important distinction Between marijuana and alcohol and tobacco. The latter two require a manufacturing process involving substantial invest ment the former can be grown and used by anyone anywhere. A it would be impossible to exercise control Over marijuana through taxation or licensing As with alcohol and tobacco a he explained. Finlator a views will find a Little support among those in the Field of Law enforcement Epps predicted. A Veteran of narcotics work with the ski Epps said he could not recall hearing another present or former Law enforcement official speak in favor of Legal use of marijuana. Most of them would be ready to stand up and fight if you suggested it he said. Finlator grew up in Raleigh. A brother Rev. W. W. Finlator is pastor of a Raleigh Baptist Church. While number two Man in the Federal drug enforcement Agency Finlator came to Raleigh in 1970 to speak to the governors conference o n drug abuse. A nothing that he said then in Public or in private even implied that he Felt Laws against marijuana should be repealed a Epps recalled. How harmful marijuana is has been debated a Long time without definitive answers Epps said. Just As with alcohol its effect varies with the individual he pointed out. A some get belligerent. Some want to Bug your neck a he said. A my position on marijuana is that it is not constructive. It does nothing to improve intelligence looks or the ability to perform it l a source of potential harm to some and a very real Hazard to others. Not everyone who uses marijuana goes on to hard drugs such As heroin Many of those on heroin started off on marijuana typically the first step for a drug user s cigarette and alcohol then on to marijuana or amphetamines. A very few people Start directly o n heroin a Epps said the person who smokes marijuana has crossed a borderline into the drug culture. Having committed an illegal act involving drugs use lips said he is to that degree exposed to the drug culture and More Likely to try something else. Why make it easier to take that step he asked. A rugged individual by yesterday most of fridays Snow had melted in the area. But this Rug de individualist looked almost As Strong As Ever at his Post in front of Davie on county Community College. Business robbed a giant of a Man nearly 7 feet tall he looked sturdy enough to survive almost anything provided the temperatures stay As Low As they have in the last couple of Days.
