State of Louisiana Proclamation Narconon Week in 1974
STATE OF LOUISIANA
WHEREAS, Narconon has been operating programs for eight years in community centers, penal institutions, halfway houses, churches and schools in various locations throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico for the purpose of prevention of drug abuse and crime and rehabilitation of those who have become dependent upon drugs or alcohol, as well as academic failures and school "drop outs"; and
WHEREAS, Narconon has developed a method of withdrawing heroin and other drug addicts without the use of substitute drugs, in a relatively painless manner; and
WHEREAS, the development of Narconon's study technology holds great promise for stemming the failure and drop out rate in our public schools, which has become tragically epidemic; and
WHEREAS, the problems of drug abuse, alcoholism, criminal behavior patterns and school drop outs have not been successfully handled in Louisiana and better solutions are needed; and

WHEREAS, Narconon's reputation of working well with governmental and private agencies is well established and their desire to share their technology with everyone who is addressing the problems inherent in education and rehabilitation is widely known;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, EDWIN EDWARDS, Governor of the State of Louisiana, do hereby proclaim November 24 - 30, 1974, as
and urge the citizens and officials of the State of Louisiana to become aware of the programs and training offered by Narconon Louisiana.
