MONDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1973 T U C S O N D A I L Y CITIZEN PAGES Hiker dies ··'Anieneanimports soar Art Linkletter Linkletter changes view SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Television personality Art Linkletter, whose daughter died while under the influence of LSD, finds his new views on drug abuse often-place him in disagreement with President Nixon, whom, he serves as an adviser, on drugs. Linkletter's new views -- including a limited decriminalization for marijuana use -came about because of his intensive-study of the drug abuse problem, which he finds "terribly complex." "The' President tends to oversimplify," Linkletter said. "He tends to see it as a black- and-white situation. It's really a blend of grays, and that's what I try to present to him:" "The drug problem is a terribly complex one, in an area 'where we're fearfully lacking in knowledge and research. Quite often we really haven't known what we were talking atout," he said. Linkletter made a study of drug abuse in the three years since his daughter's death, "trying to shed the traditional emotional beliefs and get the facts of the matter," he told a conference at the University. of California Medical Center. One of his new conclusions, Linkletter said, is that marijuana use should be granted a limited decriminalization and he favors ; "giving kids who get caught our understanding and humane treatment" instead of jailing them. However, he said, repeated offenders should be subjected to'punishment "that's got some teeth in it." Linkletter said he is a "typical upper middle class American" whose knowledge of drugs was based on misinformation. infaU from ledge Victim climbing Cat's Mountain A Washington man was killed yesterday when he feE more than' 150 feet from a ledge on Cat's Mountain.

China buys 400pO bales of cotton from Texas firm WASHINGTON (AP) Mainland China has purchased 400,000 bales of cotton from the United States in a deal expected to substantially. increase total U.S. exports to China this year. An Agriculture: Department spokesman confirmed the sale, and said the order was placed with the Plains Cotton Cooperative Association, a Texas firm. . . The value of the transaction is estimated here at $78 million,' which exceeds the $60 million in U.S; exports to China during all of last year. U.S. specialists now believe 1973 exports to China could total $300 million to $400 million, far in excess of earlier projections; -Imports from China also are expected to increase, possibly by as much as 100 per cent over the 1972 total of $30 million. But the balance of trade still would be'solidly in the United States' favor. U.S. specialists expect China will buy $80 million to $90 million in U.S. grain this year and about $8 million in electronic equipment. In addition, about half of a $150 million 'order for Boeing 707 aircraft is expected to be fulfilled inl973. Specialists say another $100 million 1 could be ..added if the Chinese buy industrial products, such as machine tools and mining equipment, that they seem to need. They say additional order's could result from the visit of about 150 American business- .men to the spring and fall industrial fairs at Canton, China, last year.. Establishment of a U.S. trade mis- 'sion in Peking is seen as a possibility for the future. · . ' · Presidential adviser Henry A.
