Detroit News; Local 612 invited the local Scout troop to help themselves to all the aluminum cans they could find in the GM plant parking lot. Scout Leader Bernard Frank was amazed that his troop collected 7200 pounds of aluminum cans. UAW rep Ralph Onthecarpet said this was only after a week since the last clean up by the Red Cross. Mr Onthecarpet said he was proud of the rank and file for donating the cans. Mr Frank was amazed that every can was a Busch Tall Boy and that over 3 pounds of marijuana was found by his boys who promptly resold it to UAW members who were on their way to start their shift.
Mr Frank said "you can't say enough about the kindness and thirst of UAW members".
