Experts on Alcoholism Agree Drinkers Don't Like Taste of Their Drinks By HAlttlY FERGUSON WASHINGTON (UP!) - Ex- perls on alcoholism are almost unanimous in saying most people don't like the taste of things they drink at cocktail parties. But they do like the effect. Cocktail parties are so firmly built into the social structure of the United States that millions of persons consider it obligatory to give and attend them. Once there, they drink things they really don't like to loosen their inhibitions enough to have a good time. Social drinking, of course, is denounced by such organizations as the Women's Christian Temperance Union and the National Prohibition party. Scientists are more cautious in deploring it and some of them consider it an asset to our civilization. "The folkway of moderately drinking beverage alcohol is one of the most valuable mental hygiene props of mid-twentieth century living, "says Dr, Anthony Zappalla, assistant professor of clinical psychiatry at Georgetown and Howard universities. "In the absence of this cultural pattern I would find the general insecurity of modern living less tolerable." Wide-Spread Misconception There is one general misconception about social drinking — the wide-spread belief that every social drinker sooner or later winds up an alcoholic. Actually, according to the Washington Alcoholic Rehabilitation Clinic, the odds are 13 to one against a social drinker becoming an alcoholic. This means there are millions of Americans who take a drink when they want it, have learned how to handle alcohol, can go for considerable periods without it and will attend cocktail parties all their lives without damage to their business or their family. There are thousands of case histories of social drinkers who became alcoholics, and here is one from the Washington rehabilitation clinic: Age, 51. Education, high school graduate. Employed in administrative-clerical position. Married, but once separated from his wife. [ No children. First tasted alcohol when he took a drink of beer at 16. His mother had criticized him Phone 342-5151 from early childhood and he had a tendency to be shy. Little Social Drinking By age 18 he was doing some social drinking but it was limited to beer. Got a job and stepped up his drinking while associating with his fellow workers evenings and weekends. Married at age 26. Began taking occasional shots of whiskey in addition to beer. A pattern developed under which he and his wife would invite friends to the house and go to other homes for drinks. By age 27 he had given up beer and was drinking whiskey fairly heavily. Wife drank along with him. Frequently they would have some drinks at home and then he would suggest going out dancing. His consumption of alcohol reached about half a pint a day on a regular basis. Five years ago his consumption of whiskey had reached a fifth of a gallon a day. He drank before breakfast, at noon and heavily in the evening. His wife got a job and continued to drink with him. Five years ago the drinking began to affect his work. He reported sick frequently, especially after a heavy weekend of drinking. Began to quarrel with his superiors. His wife cut down on her drinking and finally stopped. He went to a psychiatrist, stopped drinking for six months and then resumed heavier than ever. He said the reason was that he felt tired and one day when he wanted to see his psychiatrist he couldn't because the man was out-of-town. Still Held Job His wife left him and he became a solitary drinker. He still was able to hold his job, but became frightened eight months ago and turned himself into the rehabilitation clinic. His wife agreed to return to him and he now is under treatment and taking antabuse, a drug that causes PRESCRIPTIONS IN GALESBURO HAWTHORNE DRUG COMPANY V VOui SOCIO!

READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! worried about age? here 9 * truth about hormones for face, neck and hands NEV YORK (Special):—Reams have been written about hormones. Will they make women of 75 look 16 again? Absolutely not. Will they make women of 60 feel like they were 20 again? To know tbe truth about hormones you need to learn just two simple facts: (1) The beauty of a woman's skin starts breaking down as signs of age begin, because the female organs fail to supply enough estrogenic hormones to feed the skin—less and less as you grow older. (2) Estrogenic hormones can be supplied to the skin by rubbing on a penetrating formula con taining the hormones. Here is a test reported in a scj. entific journal, one of many tbat showed similarly sensational re suits: Twenty-five women applied hormones to one side of the face and neck, and to one hand. On the other side and the other band, a similar preparation containing no hormones was applied the same Way. These are the reports in simple Words: Skin lines (or dry-skin wrinkles) quickly dimmed or disappeared from sight as creases and hollows filled out. Blotches and "old-age freckles" faded on hands, face and neck. Skin was softer, clearer, seemed to lose its chronic dryness and take on a revived freshness and vitality. All these amazing things happened on the side where tbe hormones were used. Meanwhile no comparable changes occurred on the other side. Tbe same withered, lifeless complexion. Now to select a good estrogenic hormone preparation, here is what you need to know: the strength of the hormone preparation must appear on the label!

Usually a social drinker becomes an alcoholic because of some basic personality flaw or merely a lack of self-discipline. In this case it was shyness. The man liked to dance, wanted to mingle with other people in his home or theirs, but he needed the prop of alcohol — the "glass crutch" as it is sometimes called —to fulfill his social ambitions.
