They say they brought the news: George had been critically wounded when he and three of his friends tried to rob one of those little markets to |et money for heroin. One of bis friends was wounded, another was taken into custody and the fourth remained at large. If George survives, his doctor says he will be a human vegetable.

George's father says the shot which shattered their son's brain ended a five-year struggle against trouble, first in school and then on the streets. George lad been in jails, detention cen- :ers and counselor's offices. Every time he ran back to the streets. "I've been trying for five years to try and get George iome help," Willie McNeil said. 'We wanted him to be put in a school where he could get a good education and where he couldn't slip away whenever he wanted.". A few months ago, McNeil said, he finally persuaded authorities to have George sent to the Robert F. Kennedy Action Corps home for problem boys in Lancaster. Two weeks ago George ran away. He wasn't sent back. GEORGE'S OLDER BROTHER, Willie Jr., 17, said George began getting into trouble at an early age. "It started in school, and that just led on up." "People tried to give him a hand, and then they dropped him," Willie said. "They kept aying he was going to change when he got older. Everybody he hung around with used drugs . heroin." Willie said he had a "slight idea" his brother George was among the heroin users. The father said he knew nothing about drugs and his son, but said he often didn't know where George was and always had trouble disciplining him. DRUGS ARE*a way of life in the city slums, said J. Edwards Johnson, executive director of a drug counseling center at Bostin State Hospital. I'd say as much as 35 per cent of the children between 12 and 15 here have drug problems, either alcohol, marijuana, cocaine or heroin," he said. "We make arrests there all the time," Capt. Joseph Cummings said, "but it dosn't do any good. Age is no factor. I guess a lot of it has to do with .he living situation. There is no way out of it. Heroin is an easy way for them to enjoy themselves. It's an easy out." It's an out Doug may never ake again.

Eldridge Cleaver, who hasi been closely connected with the Panthers in Algiers, also left the office and was believed to be at his secret villa in Algiers. Relations between the Panthers! and the government of Prcsi-j dent Houari Boumedienne appear! to have deteriorated in recent! months, especially after two U.S.! jetliners were hijacked to Algiers.
