MONMOUTH Community Memorial Hospital Pentagon Trying To Curb Military Drinking WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Pentagon's chief doctor is ; ..trying to curtail "happy hours" r to < battle military drinking -which, is much heavier than among civilians, according to a "rJiew .-study. ,, Despite all the publicity-given drug use, the study by a civilian firm operating on an Army contract found that drinking was heaviest among the young and then trailed off with increasing age—except for enlisted men. Prices Raised Dr. Richard S. Wilbur, assistant defense secretary for health, told a news conference Monday that to curb drunkenness among men in uniform he was trying to curtail the temptations. Liquor prices have been raised in military stores, "happy hours" cut back in Europe, and bar hours shortened during working hours. Military rites that emphasize drinking have also been dropped including the "Prop Blast" parties that used to accompany graduations from parachute school. The study charged that the "an environment that It Will Soon Be Time for Number 3 If you've been using your air conditioning since May, you should now bo changing the disposable filter for the second time. Replacing air filters regularly during the air conditioning season is strongly recommended by experts. As filters become clogged with dirt and dust, they cut down air circulation. Your air conditioning system has to work harder and harder to meet your demands. The result is air conditioning bills higher than necessary—and a needless waste of electric energy. With a clean filter you'll save money, prolong the life of your air conditioner— and conserve electricity. If you'd like detailed information on ways to save when buying or using an air conditioner, just ask at our office. Providing energy is our business. Using it wisely is everybody's business. IT'S OUR BUSINESS TO SERVE YOU BETTER ILLINOIS POWER is tolerant of heavy drinking and drunkenness." Binge Drinking The survey showed that binge drinking among civilians dropped from 19 per cent of men in their early twenties to only 6 per cent of civilians over 50. For officers in the same age groups, binge drinking fell from 24 per cent to 14 per cent. But for enlisted men it rose from 29 per cent to 37 per cent. The study then asked—but could not answer the question— "Are heavy drinkers staying in the Army, or is the Army making men who stay in heavy drinkers?" Few Seek Help Wilbur said his big problem was that few men in uniform seek help for their drinking problems for fear they will lose security clearances or chances for promotion. "And that feeling is pretty soundly based," he said. "We're trying to make the commands understand they shouldn't take adverse action." The study separated heavy drinkers—who imbibe at least five drinks a day four or more days a week without trouble— from problem drinkers—who, regardless of intake, have had trouble with wife, job, health, finances or police as a result of drinking. Some 9,500 Army men were interviewed for the study. A briefer Navy study showed parallel results. Amish Family Stranded, Refuse Modern Rides SHINGLETON, Mich.
