Reds Build A-Plants LONDON yp)—Moscow radio said yesterday that Soviet engineers are "working on designs of atomic-powered electric stations of 50 to 100 thousand kilowatts capacity." Alcoholic Thinking The consequences of our alcoholic drinking (and thinking) have also varied. Some of our members had literally become derelicts before turning to AA for help. They had lost family, possessions and self-respect. They had lived on Skid Row in many cities. They had been hospitalized and jailed times without number. They had committed many grave offenses—against society, their families, their employers and themselves. Others among us have never been jailed or hospitalized. Nor have they lost jobs through drinking. But even these men and women finally came (o (he point where they realized that alcohol was inlefcring with normal living. When they discovered that they could not seem to live without alcohol, they, too, sought help through AA, rather than prolong their irresponsi- hile drinking. All the great faiths are represented in our fellowship and many religious leaders have encouraged our growth. There are even a few self-proclaimed atheists and agonostics among us. Belief in, or adherence to, a formal creed is not a condition of membership. We are United by our common problem, alcohol. Meeting and talking and helping other alcoholics together, we are somehow able to stay sober and to lose the compulsion to drink, once a dominant force in our lives. We do not think we are the only people who have the answer to problem drinking. We know that the AA program morks for us and we have seen it work for every newcomer, almost withont exception, who honestly and sincerely wanted to quit drinking. Through AA we have learned a number of things about alcoholism and about ourselves. We try to keep these facts uppermost in our minds at all times because they seem to be the key to our sobriety. For us, sobriety must always be our first concern. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS Box 873 Blytheville, Ark. Closed Meetings Tuesday Nights at 8 p. m. Open Meetings Friday N'ights at 8 p. m. CLUB ROOM at 410 E.
