Pigffjf jffi.teftfl rttoKMfBrfiUMm, Swiy. Feb. 11. 1B68 Bg Queionncdre Alcoholism Problem Surveyed Ministers and doctors in Lane County are being queried by an informal committee to deter mine how many people are faced with alcoholic problems. The questionnaires arc being sent out over the signatures of Lane County Circuit Court Judge Roland K. Rodman and District Judgo William A. Beckett. Rodman described himself and Beckett as a subcommittee of a larger group of people in the area who arc interested in the problems of alcoholism. He said the committee's membership contains doctors, lawyers, ministers, judges and representatives of social agencies. The judge noted that the survey will attempt to determine how many people are affected by alcoholism other than those who are reported in police records, or in voluntary commit ments to the Oregon State llos-1 pital. For the record, the subcommittee is using as a definition nf alcoholics a person who is "sufficiently affected by the use of or demand for alcoholic beverages, that he is unable to perform his work, provide for or properly care for his family or has such resulting personality defects as to adversely change the normal pattern of their daily existence." Four questions are being asked: How many persons with alcoholic problems consult with the addressees in a year? Arc they referred to any apecific agency, public or private? Would a central clearing house for information and resources for assistance be a valuable asset in the community? Is there any additional services which might be of assistance to such patients? Rodman says the questionnaire has at least two purposes: First, the group wants to see if any existing community resources can be utilized more ef fectively to deal with alcoholic problems. And secondly, the group wants to get a consc nsus of opinion on what new facilities should be adopted in the Eu gene-Springfield area. Is there an alcoholic problem? Rodman has no doubts. He suggests that the best answer is for each person to think about people he personally knows whose lives arc seriously affected by over-use of liquor. But Rodman hopes more definite answers will be provided by the questionnaire. He already has answers from about 100 persons. Once the forms are back, the committee will evaluate them, and on the basis of this may recommend a program for better handling of alcoholics. UO President To Address Log Conference The keynote speaker for the 24th Annual Oregon Logging Conference, Feb. 22 through Feh. 24 at Eugene, will be Arthur S. Flemming, president of the University of Oregon. The conference theme will he "Logging in Space, Destination Unlimited." D. J. Dobson nf Seaside is president nf the conference.

Blood Bank Worth $44,660, According to Initial Report The net worth of the Lane .led about $4,000 more in cash Memorial Blood Bank totaled I from these old accounts, Wright $44,660 as of Jan. 1, including equipment, inventory and cash i amounting In $18,050, members , nf the blood bank learned last ' week. This and other information was contained in a report covering the bank's first six months of operation starting last July 1. Scott Wright, bank administrator, reported to the membership that the bank has reduced accounts receivable (donated to the bank by the former private blood bank operation) from $60,000 to $40,000. About half was received in blood, the rest i in cash. The bank hopes to col- said. The administrator said the bank hopes to form volunteer blond drawing teams during 1962 to assist at the bank and with the bloodmobile. The Eugene Welfare League has endorsed this plan and will help enlist these volunteers, Wright said. Dr. K. D. McMilan, blood bank medical director, said in the report that a program of plasma salvage has been started on a small scale. To make this program effective, the bank will need a large refrigerated centrifuge. SEPTEMBER icLL-A-tSKATlUN A.

JIM KATS MOTORH I , 1030 Olive DI 5-2365 The Register-Guard brings complete news of Eugene and Springfield civic affairs Kesey Book Rights Sold To Film Star Springfield author Ken Kesey has hit it big movie star Kirk Douglas has bought both stage and movio rights to Kesey's novel, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." A spokesman for tho public relations firm representing Douglas in Los Angeles told the Register-Guard that Douglas plans to produce and star in both Broadwny and screen versions of the book. The stage presentation is slated for next fall, he said. The deal was made about a week ago, according lo Dick Guttman of the Rogers & Cowan public relations agency of Los Angeles. Purchase price for the rights was not announced. The novel Kesey's second, and his first published effort-went on sale about two weeks ago. It's a bawdy, funny yet deep and sometimes tragic story of life In a mental hospital ward. Book's Central Character If and when the play andor movie are produced, Douglas would presumably take the part of the book's central character a brawling Irishman named McMurphy, who challenges the hold of the "Big Nurse" over the ward and Its patients. The phrase "if and when" must he used because of the vagaries of show business. Purchase of stage and movio rights to a book is no guarantee that it will be produced. The 26-yoar-old Kesey is a graduate of Springfield High School and the University of Oregon. Ho worked in a Vetcr-ans Administration hospital mental ward in California while writing tho book. After the book was finished, he returned to Springfield for about six months before starting on another novel this one on logging. He lived in Florence for a time gathering material for that book. Uvri In California His father Fred Kesey, F.u-gene dairyman, said Ken and his family had returned to California recently and are living in the San Francisco area. The younger Kesey couldn't he reached hy phone Friday. According to (iuttman, purchase of the book rights was made by Edward Lewis, vice president in charge of production for Joel Productions, of which Douglas is president.
