DRUGS AND YOU.
Chicago, IL: Society for Visual Education, Inc., 1971.
A filmscript kit produced by Cathedral Films and issued by Singer Education & Training Products, comprising four 35mm. colour filmstrips, four study guides and scripts, and two 12” vinyl records, housed in a sturdy red cardboard slipcase and box.
Intended for classroom education of children (Cathedral Films was established in 1939 by an Episcopal priest who advocated film as a medium of Christian education). The fourth part, “Drugs Can Be Dangerous”, mentions marijuana and LSD - “They are dangerous. Even doctors don’t prescribe them”.
The records contain the 7-minute soundtracks to the 4 filmstrips, and the leaflets print the scripts by Durrell R. Crays and provide study guides and synopses by Ruth Rich.
Records excellent; leaflets ring-hole-punched; filmscripts in original canisters, seemingly perfect. Ashley Community Consolidated School District 15 stamps to record labels and leaflets; verso of slipcase slightly worn; o/w Very Good.
Together with: Three US government/educational pamphlets:
i) LSD: Some Questions and Answers (c. 1969);
ii) The Pied Pipers (1969). Prints the script of a 30-minute filmstrip, with references to coverage of the drug culture in the mainstream and underground press;
iii) Drug abuse: the chemical cop-out (1969). Full-colour booklet (48pp.), with a foreword by TV personality Art Linkletter, whose “beautiful daughter Diane leaped from her apartment in the suicidal panic induced by LSD… My only answer must be that she was out of her mind and driven to this insane act by the chemical tiger of LSD that had been lurking in her bloodstream for months.”
All pamphlets Near Fine.
