On the way there he stopped to visit a grand- daughter, Debbie Woodworth Students take drug-free pledge Students at the Delphian School have joined the ranks of Drug-Free Marshals, teens and pre-teens who have taken a pledge to be drug-free. According to the National Clear- inghouse on Drug and Alcohol Information, every day in the United States, 500 kids between the ages of 10 and 14 begin using illegal drugs, and 1,000 begin using alcohol. The Drug-Free Marshal campaign is a drug education and prevention program initiated by the Church of Scientology as part of its "Lead the Way to a Drug Free USA" program. Being a 100 percent drug-free con- gregation, the Church recognized the importance and value that youth have in creating a drug-free society. The Marshals take a pledge to live drug-free lives and to encourage their family and friends to be drug- free. The children also become more informed about the harmful effects of drugs, as the campaign is edu- cational as well as preventative. The Drug-Free Marshals cam- paign was started in Los Angeles in April of last year when 200 youth were sworn in by a representative of the FBI's Drug Demand Reduction program. Angle Mann, local spokesperson for the Marshals, stated, "The par- ticipation of such officials and groups shows the kids that they do have a voice and they can make a difference. This also improves com- munication between the kids and law enforcement. "We realize that building a drug- free community starts with these kids because they really are our future. It really means something special to them to wear a badge and be a Drug-Free Marshal," said Mann. WHS raises $1,600 for Zimbabwe Students at Willamina High School participated in a fundraiser to purchase textbooks for the Sha- barite Mine Primary School in Zim- babwe The students undertook this pro- ject as part of their Contemporary World Affairs class taught by Robert Page. After traveling to Zimbabwe as part of the Fuibright scholars, Page saw the need and challenged his students upon his return. "I knew the students would like doing this because they are 'doers.' I try to impress them with a sense of global community, and it surprises and myself a small town in Oregon can actually help form the destiny of another country as well as their own," said Page. The original goal was to raise $800 to purchase a set of classroom books. "Once things got rolling, the students surprised even me," Page said. "Soon the entire school was helping and my classroom was transformed into Zimbabwe with Victoria Falls and all. We have ended the year with a grand total of $1,600." Working with the African Ameri- can Institute in Washington, D.C., and in Zimbabwe, the students are now in the process of purchasing the textbooks and having them shipped.
