A study of drug traffic into and within Carroll County was urged last week in the final report of the May term grand jury. Expressing concern that eight of the jury's 67 indictments were for narcotics violations, the jury urged future grand jurors to investigate the local drug situation. "The problem of modern day drug abuse seemed to be 'brought home' to the grand jury by the fact that some of the drug case defendants were from the same hometowns as members of the grand jury," the report said. -- Democratic Advocate, Nov. 8, 1971.

American Education Week is Nov. 10-16. This is the 26th observance of education week. The general theme for this week is "Education for the Atomic Age." The discovery of the atomic bomb marks a turning point of human life. Scientists say that "peace" is the only defense against the atomic bomb. The four great dangers to continuing peace are ignorance, prejudice, bigotry and greed. -- Democratic Advocate, Nov. 8, 1946.

The young men who were arrested in Taneytown district on Thursday of last week, one of whom was shot in the knee, have been proven to be horse thieves. The horse and wagon they had stolen was from Charles Schaeffer, who lives in Dauphin County, Pa., above Harrisburg. Mr. Schaeffer heard of the arrest of the young men and came here on Monday. The young men will be tried here for resisting arrest and after they have paid the penalty they will probably be claimed by Pennsylvania authorities to answer the charge of horse stealing. -- Democratic Advocate, Nov. 14, 1896.
