THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12. 1976 · Tobacco, liquor worse than pot, authority says WASHINGTON (UP1) _ ; Marijuana is less dangerous to ·the user than cigarettes or alcohol, the government's top drug abuse official said today. "There is no question that alcohol and tobacco are causing us far more health problems than marijuana does," said Dr. Robert DuPont, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. DuPont, who has previously avoided making public comparisons among the three most widely used "recreational" drugs, said at a news conference that while none of the drags is safe, marijuana lacks the "lethal effects" of either alcohol or tobacco. Furthermore, said DuPont, the drug consuming habits of young persons are more likely to lead them from alcohol and tobacco to trying marijuana, rather than the other way around. DuPont, a medical doctor, issued the government's fifth annual report to Congress on marijuana and health, released Tuesday. Today's news conference was held to discuss the report. Asked for his advice to the parents of pot-smoking teenagers, DuPont replied: "I would advise them not to get so terribly uptight . . . and to talk with them (their children) about the consequences of their decisions." "My advice is if they are not using (any of the three drugs), don't take it up. There are health risks with all of the drugs. If a young person does use (one of the drugs), I would encourage them to use less of it." H-blast felt in Las Vegas P A H U T E M E S A , Nev. (UPI) _ A hydrogen warhead, possibly 50 times as powerful as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, exploded beneath this snow-covered volcanic Mesa today, rocking Las Vegas for more than a minute. Stew Udall got tip: solicit here' CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -Former Interior Secretary Stewart L. Udall was asked to leave a downtown Concord restaurant because he was soliciting votes for his brother. Rep. Morris K. Udall is a ' candidate in New Hampshire's Democratic presidential primary Feb. 24. "I'm sorry but there's no soliciting allowed in restaurants," a waitress told Udall yesterday when he started handing out campaign literature to lunch-hour patrons. "I'm not soliciting," Udall protested, "I'm campaigning." "You're soliciting and it's not allowed here," the waitress responded. Udall gave up and left. "We can't have it," waitress Theresa Johnson said later. "It scares the customers." In another campaign anecdote, it was learned that Concord police towed away two Secret Service cars during President Ford's visit here last weekend. The agents were asked to move their cars from a clearly marked no parking zone. After 30 minutes, the cars, and several others belonging to spectators, were towed, a policeman said. Ford offers aid to panel Data leak source sought WASHINGTON (AP) -President Ford today volunteered to House Speaker Carl Albert "all services and resources of the executive branch" to track down the source of leaked segments of the secret report of the House intelligence committee. White House Press Secretary Ron Nessen announced Ford's offer and said the President is "confident it did not come out of the executive branch." Committee Chairman Otis Pike, D-N.Y., has suggested the leak may have been pan of an administration effort to embarrass his committee. Nessen acknowledged that Albert, an Oklahoma Democrat, had not asked for any help. When the press secretary was asked if Ford would provide agents of the FBI and possibly the Internal Revenue Service, he replied: "You need to go ask Carl Albert." Ford's offer apparently was very broad, inasmuch as Nessen at one point referred to the "full resources of the federal government." Alligator steak may hit tables SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Alligator steaks may show up on restaurant menus soon, thanks to new techniques for improving alligator farming, scientists say. Experts attending the World Mareculture Society meeting in San Diego said the American alligator, once considered an endangered species, can be as good a source of nourishment as it once was for shoes and handbags. Its white, flaky flesh is a delicacy, they said, with a flavor somewhere between frog legs and striped bass. T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Kissinger calls panel's report ^McCarthyism * WASHINGTON (UP!) Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, his voice occasionally cracking with emotion, today denounced a House Intelligence Committee report as a "new version of McCarthyism." The report's "total impact is to produce the impression of a malicious lie," Kissinger told a news conference. He said he would resign if he concluded he had become an obstacle to carrying out foreign policy. The report has been leaked extensively to news media and one version, printed in New York yesterday, said the committee sharply attacked Kissinger for his "passion for secrecy" and quest for personal power. "We are facing here a new version of McCarthyism," Kissinger said, charging the report had itself distorted highly classified information provided by the executive branch of government to Congress. He said the airing of "utterly flagrant charges" in American political life can destroy public figures. But Kissinger gave no hint that he was actually considering resigning. He emphasized that he was leaving on a trip to Latin America iwonday and to Africa next month. The Intelligence Committee report, which was ordered kept secret by the full House until President Ford can censor it, also allegedly accused Kissinger of withholding information on Russian violations of the strategic arms limitation agreement. Kissinger was asked to reply to charges in the report, published by the Village Voice yesterday, that he had misled the committee and suppressed evidence from the House inquiry. "it is extremely difficult to reply to charges in a leaked document," Kissinger said. Policemen jailed TIJUANA, Mexico (UPI) -Four city policemen who were fired earlier have been jailed on suspicion of using police cars to transport marijuana, authorities said.
