According to Insider's |i Newsletter, authorities in several large cities--among them Los Angeles -- are quietly moving In on those employment agencies specializing In supplying bargain-priced foreign domestics for U.S. households. For several years, increasing numbers of help-less American families have been mail-ordering foreign girls, who arc then placed "under contract." Basic problem for the employing family is that We are Specialists the Season's the "contract" Is virtually meaningless. According to the U.S. Immigration Service, If the girl decides she wants out the day after her arrival, she can go with Impunity on almost any pretext (overwork, mist r e a t merit, etc.). What's more, any employer who. after paying her passage to the United States, holds a girl under duress is guilty of a federal offense--peonage. . . . .

Invited to address the club's annual reciprocity day for members of Presidents Club, Judge Barrett traced the history of concern over narcotics addiction. Concern first became very real, he said, during the early 1050s and came to a climax in I960 with Governor Brown's appointment of a state commission to study the problem. During those years, the speaker said, addiction arrests more than doubled, going from 5,000 to 12,000. Some of the commission's findings outlined by Judge Barrett: % There is no ring of "big boys" who sell to and create addicts. The problem centers around a person's own addiction which brings into being the addicted pusher. 0 Obtaining narcotics was (and still is) no problem for anyone living In Southern California who drove a car. Seventy per cent of all heroin and virtually all of the marijuana comes into this area from Mexico. 0 Addicts and sellers were not sen-ing even the minimum length of their jail terms. 0 There was no rehabilitation program for addicts in state hospitals. % It is not true that there is no possibility for rehabilitation of addicts. · · · · HECOMMENDAT IONS, meeting these findings as well as others calling for stlffcr penalties for offend- PRE- EASTER CLEARANCE SALE!

HE 6-7142 passed by the state legislature, said Judge Barrett. While It is too early to predict results, the speaker looks upon attempts to "lick addiction" and rehabilitate addicts as the most hopeful course of action. In this vein, he commended new legislation which allows municipal and superior court Judges to recommend that persons Involved In narcotics offenses be referred to the Psychiatric Division ot the Superior Court. From there, addicts are g i v e n rehabilitation treatment at Chino or at the new center in Riverside. "With a proper program of treatment and adequate follow-up, we can develop a s y s t e m by which these people can be cured," he emphasized. Solution to the problem as a whole, he said, can be reached only by the Federal government through negotiation with Mexico." · · * · BRINGING alcoholism into the picture, Judge Barrett saiJ, "remember that while the narcotics problem is serious--the things it docs in ruining human beings arc unbelievable--let me point out that alcohol does this to thousands more people than do drugs. Alcohol is a narcotic and one of our most dangerous. "I would like to see the same effort--seriously, soberly and without hysteria-put into this problem as has been expended on the problem of narcotics," he concluded.
