V- ' · "WE HAD a group of 18 alcoholics to work with," Bur *' ~ ' B said. "Tho first week we gavo them alcohol alone, the week the tranqulllier--In this case chlornromazlne--and ·-'·alcohol together . . . They simply got drunk quicker and there £wtas' a change In their overt behavior." ·"·' · THE STUDENTS were given J of a gram of Old Gram de o^lentho or Old Cinch Notice or whatever it was, tor every kll : : iBgram (23 pounds) of their body weight. Roughly translated ·-this. Is about four Jiggers for a man weighing 160 pounds. ·Is · "THE EFFECT, when given with a tranqulllzcr or its chem vleal! equivalent, was bizarre to lay the least," Burbrldge said ·i-.Th.ey not only got eay. out many at them tried to put each £binir In showers and! things like that." '^' 'BUKBU1DGE Is worried about the effects of combining ;tranquUUen and booze. He points out that a happy pill Is not u ·!-}t}ie)y substitute for a pretzel.

REUBEN Hill told a lesslon of the National Con 'M«r*nce on Social Welfare In Philadelphia the American family ~;l5'lot breaking down but suffering growing pains. "Marriage *.haj'never been more popular," he declared. 'KEUB POINTED out tho divorce rate has dropped by one- L ' since Us high point In 1946. He said 87 per cent of divorced -pertoru remarry eventually. , · "WE ARE operating a type of trial marriage system, In which the first marriage domesticates the two and the second often reaps the benefits." ANYWAY, REUB, we can all agree that sometimes marriage does become a triaL JJ When her husband went to jail for 60 days ^ ** on n drunkenness rap he told her he'd phone her just fa toon u he got out, Mrs. Florence English, · 48, told the judge In a Klversheacl, N.

JUSTICE DAVID Kusnetz reserved decision on Flo's petition to have her everlovln' declared legally dead and the marriage dissolved. SACRAMENTO UJ! -- Th Senato Wednesday soundly' defeated a ban on the death per* alty after opponents objected t sparing the "lascivious lizards on San Quentln's Death Row. · The upper house voted 9 fo and 31 against the bill by Set Fred Fair (D-Carmel), which would have prohibited use o the death penalty In California for six years. ,· The nine who voted for th measure were Democrats. Thoi against it included 20 Republicans and 11 Democrats. Sen, James E. Busch (R-Ukl ah) went Into detail on the cases against the 23 Inmates on Death Row and heatedly object ed any measure which wouU spare "these lascivious lizards.' Sen. Robert L McCarthy (D San FrancUco) also argued against the bill ort grounds "I believe wo can take a life In self-defense and In defense o, society as a whele." , MCCARTHY also made the xilnt that the death penalty "Is t deterrent to many murders that have not been committed," I In admitted, however, In a well . organized presentation, hnt the death penalty Is not elng administered justly. "I believe a wealthy man with a capable attorney has a much better chance to escape the loath penalty than a poor man,' ha said. Tho Senate vote was a death knell to the Issue at least for his session of the Legislature. Another somewhat similar bill s bogged d o w n In a-Senate committee. , , . , , -.. FARR ARGUED t h a t the oath penalty as now admlnls- ercd In California Is "like spinning the wheel of chance. There re now more than 400 men In late prisons serving time for murder. Why do some get the as chamber and others don't?" e asked. · · Other developments; 1 BUDGET] 'A free conference committee of three senators anc three assemblymen was nppoln cd to work out a compromls on the largest state budget 1 history. The Senate Tuesday adopted a spending program o almotit $1,908,000,000, near) 16 million dollars less than tha passed by the assembly tw weeks ago. Tho conference com mlttce will begin work toda to resolve this difference. Appointed to the committee wer Sens. McBrlde, Williams an Miller and Assemblymen Bruce Allen. Caldecott and Reel. .

Several legislative lead ers affirmed that a move to cu the amount of Increased ait was under wny In the Senate ilchards said the bill "canno and must not" be sidetracked In a major departure from Sen ate and Democratic thinking on the bill, Richards said "I am low willing to consider an even- y spread tax proposal with the wceptlon of a sales tax to ralEc the needed ,. funds , for , the schools." ELECTIONS, The S e n a t e Election* Committee approved and sent to the floor a measure which would abolish cross-filing n California elections. Sen. George Miller (D-Martlncz), uthor, told the committee the tnto's unique system helps can- Idates to deceive the voters. Tho present system permits andldates to cross-file on both major party ballots to . seek omlnatlon to office. JUDGES i Th» Assembly vot- d 66-3 to pass a bill by As- cmblyman Patrick D.
