    Adams Central juniors Bess Fiechter and Devan Barger, members of the group VOICE (Indiana's youth movement to speak out against the tobacco industry), headed a table containing some of the ingredients of cigarettes in an effort to inform fellow students of the dangers of smoking.
    The activity was held Wednesday and included a display of 27 pairs of shoes to represent the 27 people who die each day in Indiana due to tobacco, according to the group.
