Church Group Opposes " 00Tavern, Lounge Dancnng Drinking, Dancing Said Harmful TiCmmunity ioe00tac;00t,;i0010 Opposition to Cheney's new ordinance all, owing tavern and coetau murge dancing was voiced at Tuesday's City Council meeting .by the Mnisterial Assoeiatiort of Cheney. A resolution prepared by The association requested the City Cotmeil to reconsider its decision .to allow d,a,ning where alco- ,Italic beverages are sold and consumed. "Drinking and 8neing, when boughl together, may well be a de:trimeter to any community, especially in a col- tege commmity," be resin- Uon stated. The City Council recen$1y >assed .an ordinance pe,mit- tirtg dncing after several years of detay and debate over the issue. The Beehive ,Restau- Campus Christian Fe,ltwship at Easterr Washington Sta College, said, "we do lave many at Eastern Who are over 21. It's kind of a second chance and in many cases a last Chance school for many of them." He was referring to Mayor Brown's remarks aboul not caterirg to minors and was rant, where the H on,eycob can,tending the c ornunity still has r obligation o con- sider all its students. Question Posed "Do you olks think we ,have a responsibility to regulate these people after they urn 21?" he asked. The other coun- ,cilmen asked if they should be forced o go .to Spokane, or Fish Lake or the Idaho State Line when they are of legal age. For Lagoon Site MEDICAL LAKE--A Stper- or 'u jury decided Mndy m :poane the town of Medi- ,cale Lake must py $15,000 on arm property to be used fay a sewer system av.d for damage to remin'mg property. The city cow,tended it should laay defendnt $6,372 as purchase wiee afthe h- goon site and damages for in- jury to the rest of the farm. Paul Schiffner, .rpceserttig Medical Lake, disclsed figure. An a,pFraiser for the owners set the price a $35,000. I Room is located, and Kelly's Tavern, operated by Dale Mos,s, have ,been ,granted lic- enses, renewable on a year-to- basis. Mayor Explains Mayor Nohn Brown said he hugh't t,he resolution was 'well written and moderately, but it could misunderstand the law as it concerns this." Washington taw and the State Liquor Board have tong since allowed tavern and cock- ' tail room dancing .on a local option. ! The ministers expressed fear over moral pro,blems aris- ing when young people "or mixed gro,ups" as they were called, are brought together through e ntivemen of drinks a,nd entertainment. They also esed-tlm. of added police control, which they fear may be necessary if prob. lems arise. Mayor Brown said the coun- cil simply ganted wla liquer licentse holders are aIlovefl under state law. "Also, you ihave to be 21 to be in these places so we are n, ot catering to minors," he said. The mayor said the State Liquor Board has a major role in enforcement of order in inch es'tablishments. As far as ;he City of Cheney is con- cerned, .he said, arty violation of 'the license could mean rev- ocation of the dancing license within 24 hours. Owners Responsible Councilman Norman Hove said holders of the licenses have a resporsibili,ty to police their own establishments and tat no additional police force in Cheney will be needed. The Rev. Ross, pas- 'tot of the Chr,[stian, Ctmreh, commented, "the en,tertain- ment feature does encourage mere drinking and makes those who drink more of a h,aard to this eonunu,n.ty when they leave." The Rev. K. W. Larrison, pastor of the Methodist Church, said "bogus I.D.'s (identification cards) are easy tL0 get and it's hard to tell who is 21 and who is not." George Allen, secretary of the grolJ and pastor of the Teachers Reminded Of Exam Teachers o the state were reminded today by St'te Yu- perintendent Louis Bruno th,at Feb. 3 is the last day to regis- ter for the annual stale exam- imation in "Was.hington Sae Ilistory and Government."
