Calgary Herald SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1991 10 PAGE aEiroyo New York club crowd turning to 'Special K' dance-'til-dawn crowd," said Fa-trick McMullen, 34, a photographer who works in clubs. Michael Alig, 23, who publicizes special-events for nightclubs, said, "Everybody's always looking for something new and Special has been it." DEA spokesman John Dowd said ketamine has been considered for an official controlled-sub-stance classification, a listing for drugs that have a high potential for abuse. That listing is based on police and medical surveys about the extent of a drug's improper use and its health dangers. It could lead to tighter controls on ketamine among doctors, veterinarians and drug companies, as well as law-enforcement crackdowns The Yuppie LSD robs user of sense of time and space By ROB POLNER New York Daily News, NEW YORK Wearing a silk shirt and leather jacket, Steve the drug dealer snaked through the packed Limelight nightclub repeating the names of his illicit cache like a stadium hawker. Amid the pulsating music and psychedelic wall designs, a young man flagged him down and shoved $60 into his palm.

Steve pulled out a plastic bag containing a white powder and poured it into the crease of a $1 bill. "Is that cocaine?" Steve was asked. "No, 'Special he said. "It's the one." Ketamine or Special is the drug of the moment in New York clubs; a sense garbler and mild hallucinogen, a quick energy burst, a kind of yuppie LSD, according to narcotics experts. The effects usually last no more than a few hours.

The drug, which is illegal without a prescription, also is the anesthetic of choice among veterinarians. But arrests for sale and use of the hallucinogen are rare. Authorities say that, with so many other illegal drugs, cracking down on ketamine, which has flourished in the last six months to a year, isn't yet a priority. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration is uncertain how dealers get it, although they believe the drug is obtained in its liquid form from hospitals and veterinary clinics and boiled down to powder to be sold illegal- ly. The Limelight, like other clubs, says it does not tolerate drug activity and ejects customers with drugs.

Still, the activity goes on. Ketamine can cause convulsions, especially when taken in large doses. Users report that mixing it with alcohol leads to vomiting. Depending on one's state of mind, ketamine's rush of energy and mental confusion can, in rare cases, nudge a depressed person toward suicide or push an agitated individual to be violent, said Dr. Robert Millman a psychiatrist and director of drug and alcohol abuse programs at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.

"It can be remarkably dangerous," he said. "Maybe young people think it's fun to use it, but if you take too much, you could become unconscious and require hospital care and counteractive drugs to revive," said Dr. Charles Short, professor of anesthesiology at Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine. But danger is part of the lure. "Special is supposed to be very trippy, very energizing, and it's definitely taking the place of cocaine among the younger Deaths BEATON Joseph Charles Beaton, of the Extendicare Cedars Villa Nursing Home, passed away November 22, 1991 at the age of 82 years.

WORLD IN BRIEF Atlantis launching likely tonight Associated Press, CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA The U.S. space agency advanced toward a Sunday night launch of Atlantis as the Pentagon expressed renewed confidence in the rocket steering system of the military spy satellite aboard the shuttle. The Defence Department's qualms about sending up the satellite diminished Saturday after data analyses ruled out the likelihood of widespread equipment problems.

Marcos prepared to live in slum Associated Press, MANILA Imelda Marcos has rejected compromise with President Cora-zon Aquino's government and said she is willing to live in a slum if the Philippines government tries to cut off her sources of funds. Marcos, who returned from almost six years exile in the United States on Nov. 4, said she would not seek a compromise despite numerous civil and criminal cases filed against her, accusing her and her family of stealing millions from the treasury when her husband, Ferdinand, was president. German bunker hid war treasure Reuter, MOSCOW The Amber Chamber, a unique czarist treasure seized by Nazi invaders and lost since 1945, is hidden underground at a German bunker complex built for Adolf Hitler, a Soviet newspaper said. Rabochaya Tribuna said the treasure was buried at the complex, below what later became a Soviet military base, at Ohrdruf in the eastern German state of Thuringia.

Soviet troops stationed at the base, in what was East Germany until last year, never investigated the 45-metre-deep galleries of "Hitler's buried capital and buried storehouse," it said. New government in Cambodia Canadian Press, PHNOM PENH A new coalition government will be formed in Cambodia with a guerrilla group joining the Vietnamese-installed Phnom Penh administration it once fought, Prince Norodom Sihanouk says. Guerrillas loyal to Prince Norodom Ranariddh, Sihanouk's son, will join the government of Prime Minister Hun Sen in a major reshuffle, Sihanouk said Saturday. Some western diplomats expressed concern the development could jeopardize the fragile peace agreement signed Oct. 23.

Somalian clash worst in months Associated Press, NAIROBI Factions of Somalia's governing party exchanged artillery and rocket barrages Saturday in the capital, fighting one of the fiercest battles of a three-month power struggle. Clashes between rival groups of the United Somali Congress party broke out in September. At least 500 people have been killed since, and hundreds of people have been killed or injured during the last week in Mogadishu. The party's chairman, Gen. Mohamed Farrah Aidid, has sought to oust President Ali Mahdi Mohamed, who took office in January following an uprising that ended President Mohammed Siad Barre's 21 years in power.

on clubs, users and dealers. Village Voice columnist Michael Musto, who covers club life, said ketamine "apparently robs you of any sense of time or space and sends you floating, so you don't know who you are or where you are or why you exist." The appeal of ketamine lies partly in its cost at $20 a hit, or "bump," it's as cheap as drugs generally come in the clubs. Ketamine's effects are mild compared with the popular amphetamine derivative "ecstasy," which researchers have tied to brain damage, or the drug PCP. This makes ketamine suitable for career-minded sorts and students who have to function after a night of partying, said drug experts. Soviet chief says 'we can't turn back' Associated Press, WASHINGTON Communism destroyed incentives to work and left the Soviet Union with a worker class that didn't care, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev said in an interview with U.S.

News and World Report. Gorbachev said that by the early 1980s "the command system of economic management had shown that it had totally exhausted its potential, and the people did not gain the appropriate benefits from the enormous resources that were expended," U.S. News reported in its Dec. 2 edition. "The total grip of state property destroyed the natural motivation, the natural incentives, to work," Gorbachev said.

"It also generated the mentality of equalization, lack of initiative, and it gave birth to a certain kind of worker who is not interested in much of anything." The Soviet leader said the Cold War arms race "resulted in an enormous distortion of our economy," a reference to emphasis on military production rather than meeting consumer demands. He said his goal now was to "go forward above all by reforming property ownership, by creating a mixed economy with various forms of property and by making room for competition." "There is nc way we can turn back," he said. Gorbachev also stated that a potential problem involving Moscow losing control of its nuclear arsenal to breakaway republics "does not exist." "Let me assure you that so far as the problem of control of nuclear weapons is concerned, there is no danger at all that there has been any weakening of that control." 065 In Memoriam WEITZ In loving memory of Lydia, who passed away November 24, 1989.
