This pist Sunday , as at t h ~ s e that ran before, saw another S.G.A. Dar- B- Que that was soundly put together a o the trne of success. Some controversy had arose in the past over amounts and selection of food but not so this time. It appears the SGA has once again, "put it all together" as over 1,000 people showed up and none went away hungry. For those that came, 1700 hamburgers were served and 18 kegs of beer downed. That's a pretty productive Bar-B-Que from anyolles standpoint. Frankie Burke and his Individuals adPed to the afternoon with some music right from the clubs at the beach. Jim Owen, the SGA Social Functions chairman also used the afterncon to collect donations for the Dollars for Scholars Fund. Over $ 4 5 was collected with the big contribution of the day coming from Dean Mansfield. By 4:30 the action had about broken up but may we take this time to remind you, the SGA Social Calendar for the fall has only started, be aware and take part. The Social Functions Committee would like to thank Alpha Rho Omega for serving the guests. As at other Bar-B-Ques. the Frats in general have helped beyond measure.

OCTOBER 1, 1971




Every attempt is being made to schedule donors to aviod the long lines this time. Use the blanks in the Avion to help us get an idea of when we can expect you. In addition,for YOU students lacking transportation, we are trying to arrange bus service back and forth to the drive. We have the bus but need drivers 25 or over with a chaffeur's license. If you fill these requirements, please contact Rick Spicer,Box 4315. With over 1800 students we should have no problem getting 500 pints. Most everyone is eligible. For all you Air Science students, a local FAA examiner stated that it is up to the individuals response whether you fly or not. If you feel weak, don't fly that day; if you feel ok he see's no reason why you shouldn't be able to Fly... --<

If you'd like a free spagetti dinner, a chance to win a trio home a ~~-~ - for --weekend andthe satisfaction of heloino the communthe time ity please-t&e an5 help make this drive a success. It is a worthy cause and a fine opportunity to show the community that we aren't just the little flying school on the airport.



How would you like to spend a weekend home sometime soon, for free? You have a chance to do just that if you participate in the EnAU 500 Blood Drive. The Embry-Riddle Parent's Association has donated a round trip weekend excursion ticket on Eastern Air Lines to any of the following cities: Baltimore, Washington, Philadelphia, New York,Hartford, Boston. Chicago, or St. Louis. Other prizes include a round trip ticket on Shawnee Airlines to any point on their schedule, including the Bahamas, one hour of dual in the Mooney at the E M U Flight Line, and much more. All you have to do to be eligible is sign at the Blood . up Drive. The Blood Drive will be held on October 7 6 8 from 9 AM to 3 PM in room 306 of the old Engineering Building. We have a very ambitious goal of 500 pints of blood this time. This blood is badly needed in the Halifax area. What better way to get known in the community.

safety tips by Curtis J. Poree, Jr. Footgear can be an important item of flying equipment when piloting air craft. Ideally, the best footgear to wear while flying is one that gives good ankle support, has flexibility, is not easily removed by shock, but can be removed quickly in water, has no objects that will catch onto the flight controls, has a thick sole to absorb shock, is fire retardent, heat resistent and liquid repellant. The degree of protection that is offered by a type of footgear ranges from the worst which is shower shoes to the best which is leather sky diving boots with front zippers, with intermediates such as sandals, tennis shbes,street shoes, flight boots of various types,and military combat boots. socks should,.be worn with COKT'C IrEX'T PAGE

SOCCER Last Friday's soccer game was attended by apspectaproximately 150 tors. This is the best representation since the sport has started at ERAU 7 years ago. Unfortunately the game ended in a loss for the Eagles to a smoothly operating MiamiDade Jr. College. Of course, the Eagles were not helped by the loss of their number 1 and number 2 defense men within 10 minutes of the opening of the game. Oscar Ramsingh, a returning letter man, will require sursery after the one play that put him out of action last Friday. Fatcons The Miami-Dade presented a well coordinated operation, chiefly Spanish speaking, and were able to make up a 2-1 half time lead and go ahead 4 minutes before the end of .. the .~..oame. The Falcons seemed to be in better nhvsical condition and the Hagles did not attempt as many shots at the goal as is their victory last week over St. Leo. Both of the Embry-Riddle goalies displayed real excellence in the saves under trying conditions (when it rains that hard the ball is hard to handle especi2~~




ally a new one with glaze) There were spectacular dives and punches that a kept the Falcons from higher score. The best commentary about the game probably could be that the United Nations could not come to any agreement at this session. It is time that the individual numbers of the players be publicized so that spectators at home games might be able to knou who is performing. Ordinarily those playing on the forward line are numbered as follows: 39 G. Haupt T. Akabogu 3 2. Fagbemi 10 A. Shivji 4 C. Smith 7 G. Dozier 20 W. Dunning 6





Those perfozming in thc middle on the half back - line are: T. Movassaghi 15 R. Sabal1.a 7 C. Okwudibolye 40 B. Maharaj 8 J. Medina -17 . Those on the fullback line are: R. Powell 2 R. Kuliavas 5 S. Pflanzer 37 C. Rungsand 21 Rex Rungsang has been Playing on the forward line but is on the injured ' list and does not have a number yet. We have three 0. Palmer, E. goalies: FOrSt, and A. Bracius.

DRUGS FROM DEAN SPEARS During the closing weeks of the Spring '71 trimester the university experienced its most oerlous apidemic to date of illegal drug involvement in violation of University 1,egulations. ( A total of eight students were subjected to sudden and "unprogrammed" departures; some with accompanying police records). AS a consequence, in efforts to further educate and inform all members of our student body of the serious view which this University does and must take toward such matters, a thorough publicity campaign . was launched throughout the campus. Only three weeks later. on 16 May, two students were arrested by the local Narcotics Task Force and charged with violation of State Statutes governina illegal drugs. Both students were suspended im'mediately following their arrest. Student.S1 was a senior in Aeronautical Science with a 2.95 Honor Point Average procrrammed for graduation in April. 1972. He currently faces trial in Felony court as a "pusher", has withdrawn from the University In lieu Of disciplinary action", and is reportedly undergoing psychiatric treatment. student # 2 was a senAeronautical ior in science programmed for graduation in December. 1971. He was initially charged with possession" but due to a backlog of felony cases and consequent' plea: bargaining between the State's Attorney and DeCense Attorney. was allowed to plead quilty to "misconduct". This student chose to face the university Conduct Committee, requesting that he be alloqed to resume his education at Embry-Riddle.The Conduct Cammittee voted unaminously infinding that violated Student X2 had University Regulations '"governing involvement with narcotics, hallucinggenic chemicals, or similar agents", .and recommended that he be dismissed. The Findings 2nd Recomendations of the Conduct Cormnittee have been upheld.

And what did this stupid act cost? Plenty: You might think about some of these before getting yourself involved: Disgrace to family. A police record that will have to be explained every time he applies for a significant job for the rest of his life. Fours Years of time and effort wasted. Destroyed aspirations and ambitions for a professional career in aviation, either civilian or militarY. MANY, MANY thousands of dollars in wasted tuition, flight, and living expenses, plus the cost of one of the most expensive attorney's in Daytona Beach. WORTHIT?

Paqe 11 by the "demonology" 'of marijuana I am particularly sensitive to how deeply we as a society have'been committed to a positicn that is based on superstition and undocumented hear say. For threc generations misinformation about this drug has been embedded into our literature, our minds. our ethos and, increasingly, our laws. How well this misinforrr.ationhas been planted and carefully nurtured is attested to by our continued inability to use the available scientific evidence to modify Federal statutes vihich are not only unrealistic but Draconian in nature. This societal "blindspot" has created a dilemma! One facet of the dilemma is the Alice- in- Wonderland relationship we have fashione6 between marijuana and alcohol. On the one hand we find that posession of alcohol, a central nervous system depressant which has porduceZ physical dependence in an estimated 6,000,000 Americans and psychological dependence in perhaps five times that number, is not only free of penalty but its use is even encour aged by our socity to such a degree that nonusers of the drug are regarded by most as being somewhat peculiar. On the other hand mere possession of n!arijuana, a mild 'hallucinogen" incapable of producing physical dependence and whose ability to .create psychological depexdence is judged to be less than that of alcohol and tobacco, is considered a heinous crime punishable upon conviction by im-



(behind the control tower)


Prisonment for varying peri'ds up to 99 years. ' G?inspoon, a Harvard Medical School psychiatrist, analyzes this and other aspects of the marijuana problem and concludes that, "we must consider the enormous ham., both obvious and subtle, short range and long-term, inflected on the people, particularly the young, who constitute or will soon constitute the formative- and critical !embers of our society by the present punitive, repressive approach to the use of marijuana. And we must consider the damage inflicted on legal and other institutions when young people react to what they see as a confirmation of their view that those institutions are hypocritical and inequitable. Indeed tile greatest potenti21 for social harm lies in the scarring of so many young people and the reactive, institutional dAmages that arc direct produces of present marijuana laws. If we are to aviod having this harm reach the proportion of a national disaster within the next decade, we must move to make the social use of marijuana legal." Before reaching this conclusion Grinspoon covers, in an unusually well documented fashion, the biology, chemistry, pharmacology an2 toxicity of marijuanaithe potential medical uses which merit further study; the psychological effects of. using the drug; and the social and legal implications'of usage both with regard to the indivisual and society. I can only express my admiration for the manner in which Grinspoon has extracted, analyzed and syn-thesized the most relevant literature to present the reader with a coherent. logical case. He inevitably leads to the conclusion that, as a society, we were systematically coerced into making the same mistake in 1937 with marijuana that was made earlier with alcohol by the passage of the Volstead Act. One group opposing the passage of the 1937 Aut outlawing marijuana was the American Medical Association. The opposition was based on concern that the act woule. not accomplish its objectives, would be unnecessar#lyex-

pensive for the physicians to comply with and that the drug should continue to be available for restudy by modern means-such studies they believed could show "other advantages to be obtained from its medicinal use." Their concern with the ineffectiveness of the act has proven to be well founded. Less well appreciated is the fact that research was for all practical purposes completely stifled for over 30 years. Fortunately that situation has now been remedied, and we are now well into the efforts to derive therapeutically useful substances from the comples constituents which make up the marijuana plant. Grinspoon's evaluation is that new products may be - - develooed from either naturally 'occurring mariiuana or one of the svnGhetic forms which hak: (1) analgesic properties in combination with mood elevation abilities;(2)the effect of lowering blood pressure through different


mechanisms than tcday's drugs; and (3) have antidepressant and antianxiety effects again different in their mechanism of action than today's druqs. mergence of a new drug in any one of these three classes would be a substantial contribution, particularly if the drug po3sessed greater margins of safety or fewer side effects than drugs presently being used. As for myself, I yould favor legalization only if I were confident that a control system could be devised to preclude widespread usage by abolescents. They are not well equipped to handle a drug which provides a pleasant escape from reality, promotes inattention and would distract them from their main task-growing up. But hooefullv manv --. r-----, *~ Americans will read Lester Grins~oon's"Marihuana Reconsiiered" and utilize the information so will presented in reaching their own decieion on "pot", to legalize or not. ~
