The ACU-I Region XIV conference was held Oct.
29 and 30 and after participating in and observing the
conference we have come to the conclusion that ASG
should seriously consider leaving that organization if
significant changes cannot be made in its focus.
The conference was mostly activities-oriented and
while we can see the need to have workshops built
around activities there is a recognizable need for an
organization like ACU-I to set up programs dealing with
other student government concerns.
One of the more important concerns was to be
touched upon in a previously announced workshop.
Members of the Clackamas Community College delega
tion in attendance at that workshop were, at the very
The workshop was entitled Programs That Affect
the Community. The description of the program's con
tent stated that discussion would include how to initiate
and establish programs which have impact on the com
munity at large as well as on campus. The workshop was
nothing more than representatives of various college/
community programs telling what the functions of their
office was. Some of the students in attendance were
expecting something more. A workshop where ideas
could be exchanged and problems gone over in college
community relations would have been ideal.
Our main gripe with ACU-I is that the conference
was too structured. There didn't seem to be any room
for just getting together with other representatives t. •
discuss problems or exchange ideas.
There are other conferences revolving around student
activities. We see a greater need for organization of a
conference - not just within the state -- where student
needs, projects and areas of interest to colleges and
communities can be discussed in an atmosphere of give

In reaction and response to "III Wind" in a recent C

I would like to quote from a study done on the Jamaican
use of marijuana.
"The Jamaican study revealed no physical or mental ab
ties characterizing the subjects using marijuana." By stam
American cultural use, Jamaican users represent the epitom
posure to marijuana. Use on this island has been customaril
least several generations (even during pregnancy) and cor
more potent cannabis than available to most Americans. I
initiated earlier in life as part of Jamaican folkways."
From the Consumer Reports description of the study: "I
are introduced to ganja (marijuana) quite early." The Jamal
Dort notes, "first as a medicament in 'Bush Tea' or in a crude

Increasing doses of marijuana tea throughout infancy are

smoke marijuana to 'help them study' to 'improve memory
'help pass examinations.'"
In the best and worst of societies, the pursuit of pleas
some is the responsibility of others.
To the Editor:
I understand that Clackamas Community College is going
new covered bridge between Randall and McLoughlin. I
probably should be polite and demurely point out that
bridge would be ridiculously inappropriate, I've never muc
noted for my tact. Without a doubt, this qualifies as one
stupidest ideas I've ever heard.
We don't live in North Dakota. The snow does not pile
feet deep on the ground, and the temperature doesn't hover
18 degrees below zero for weeks, or even days at a time. Evei
the wind blows, it doesn't blow that cold. But then, that'sn
we need a bridge, is it? No, we need this bridge so that thel
crats who run this institution can impress people with how
this place resembles a real school.
In my opinion, the people who want to learn something

scholarships, etc., so I guess we're getting what we pi
Just the same, it seems to me that the money which wo

tables for the science department, for example. Why, the»
tables shake when someone walks by. I'm surprised that the
mens don't jump right out of their jars!
But then, how can simple, decent, educational equipmenl
pare with the aesthetics involved in having a grand, new toy ti

now that we got this keen new bridge?" I'm sure we will -
