Dr. Donald B. Louria, says this is a "Charming fallout" of the eruption of campus political activity touched off by the ; residential bids of Eugene J. McCarthy and Robert F. Kennedy. "if you want to cure the drug pro We in/' says Ixmria, who heads the New York State Council on Drug Addiction, ''the name of the game is commitment." In more scientific terms, Dr. Stanley F. Yulles, director of the National Institute of mental Health, is saying much the same thing when he urges researchers into dru£ addiction to look beyond the specific problems of LSD, marijuana, amphetamines and barbiturates to the underlying causes of drug abuse. ''We live in a drug-oriented culture," Yolles told Congress recently. "From aspirin to sleeping pills, from tranquilizers to 'the pill,' Americans of all ages are ingesting drugs in greater number and variety thaji ever before." As a starting point for research into drug abuse, Yolles suggests looking into the causes of alienation- that withdrawal from the world that lias been characterized as "a refusal uf what is, without a vision of what should be." As a disease of the young, alienation has probably existed since the first gap opened between the generations, but Yolles believes it is now "wider, deeper and more diffuse than at any previous time in our history." "It affects the rich and the pour," he says, ''the college student and the school drop-out, the urban and rural youngster." Their common complaint; "Life is a drag." Since they can't change the woild, they are to change their state of consciousness. Rejecting tho beliefs, values and leaders of the '• square" world, they create their own dream world through drugs, Yolles says there are estimates that two million college and high school youngsters have tried marijuana and that its use is increasing. He believes it is urgent that new approaches be found to bridge the generation gap, to wipe out the mistrust of the old by the young, to restore a belief in the world as it is. "If this is not done," he says, "there are serious dangers that large proportions of current and future generations will reach adulthood embittered toward the larger society, unequipped to take on parental, vocational Teather Case Before the Appeals Court ST.
