EUREKA NEWS
W. C. T. U. Notes
(Carried Over from Last Week)
Mrs. H. W. Woods, of Missoula,
Treasurer of the W. C. T, U. Nar
cotics Education Commission Fund,
was guest speaker at a meeting of
the Eureka W. C. T. U. on Tuesday
afternoon at the home of Mrs. Flag
ett. Mrs. Woods explained the pro
gram being carried on in the schools
of the State under the direction of
Miss Dora H. Young, Secretary of
the State Narcotics Education Com
mission. Miss Young has prepared
a bulletin to aid the teachers in giv
ing this instruction. She has also
prepared courses on Narcotics In
struction for use in the Teacher
Training institutions of the State.
Miss Young will eventually visit all
the schools in the State, rendering
aid to the Superintendents and the
teachers on this subject. Due to
the many demands made on the
last session of the State Legislature
for various appropriations, funds
were not provided for the work of
this commission.
Due to the many problems arising
from the consumption of alcoholic
beverages the Montana W. C. T. U.
took the responsibility of raising the
funds to carry on this program. The
budget for the year ending June
30th, is nearly completed and plans
are being made to raise the $5,000
budget for the coming fiscal year.
The quota for the Northwest Dis
trict is $500 to be raised before Jan
uary, 1949. Mrs. H. B. Hendrick
sen, President and Mrs. O. A. Shew,
Secretary of District One, of Kal
ispell were also guests of the Eur
eka Union.
It has been reported that 50 per
cent of high school students are
drinking alcoholic beverages. Dr.
Jellinek of the Yales School of Al
cohol Studies reports that a survey
of questionnaires from members of
A. A. shows that 2/3 of the alco
holics started drinking alcoholic
beverages during high school age
and 1/3 of the alcoholics showed
signs of alcoholism by the time they
had reached college age. Dr. Roger
Williams of Texas University says:
"It is practically impossible to cure
alcoholism in persons under twenty
eight years of age. In view of these
young
should be given the scientific facts
regarding the Narcotics in order
that they may be prepared to meet
the problems of life more efficient
ly."
