" '' (Staff) Agnew Criticizes Influence of Drugs LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Vice President Spiro T. Agnew, warning that the influence of drugs "threatens to sap our national strength," says some of the popular songs adult America regards as good, clean, noisy fun are in fact "latent drug culture propaganda" that is brainwashing the young. At a Republican fund-raising dinner amid the neon glider of the Las Vegas gambling casinos, Agnew lectured Monday night against "creeping permissiveness" in American society. He said the administration needs Republicans In Congress to help put a slop to it. "Let's vote in the men with the backbone to turn back the tide of weakness and permissiveness in our national life and our personal life," the vice president told more than 1,200 persons at a ?100-a-plalc dinner at the Sahara Hotel. Agnew said the nation must 'move hard and fast" to control a drug culture that pervades the adult population and is spreading among the young. "We have arrived at this culture partly because society's natural resistance has been broken down by the pill popping of adults who fancy they need a pill to gel to sleep and a pill to wake up," Agnew said. "This, coupled with growing adult alcoholism, was all that some of our younger citizens have needed to do some experimenting on their own." Agnew said that in loo many of the lyrics of popular songs "the message of the drug culture is purveyed al its worst, it is blatant drug culture propaganda ... "I may be accused of advocating song censorship for pointing this out but have you really heard the words of some o: hese songs?" Agnew asked. He offered as an examp hese lines from a hit tune: Tar Apart' On Contract By Lowell McKirgan, Associated Press Writer DETROIT (AP) -- The United Auto Workers ent on strike against General Motors Corp. today, hoking off car production by the world's largest nanufacturing firm and idling hundreds of thous- nds of workers in the United States and Canada.
