B-4 THK NKWS, Frederick, Maryland Thuraday. Auguri 31, 1M7 Agnew Caffs For All-Oat Attack Of Alcoholism Problem In State ANNAPOLIS (AP) -- "It is time we recognized alcoholism for what it is -- a sickness that saps and debilitates our society, and not a criTe "., * can be ^"ntt jlled ! v i ' ig '-«e jails Vtith person:. *v ·'$ lor public drunkenness " Gov. Agnew declared Wednesday He issued » call for a broad and intense ittack of the problem. He oaia his administration will develop and present a comprehensive program to the 1968 Maryland Legislature "We have ttie resources and the kno* ledge to do an effective job if we apply the will to accomplish it," Gov Agnew asserted. "I commit this adminis- tration to that end." As a start, he said he would initiate broader coordination of f t ate and local programs on alcoholism, encourage private programs involving business, labor and the liquor mdustr, a more intensive state effort to prov ide specialized treatment, consultation with judges on han dlmg cases of chronic alcoholics and review and revision of laws. The governor cited as cause for concern a report submitted this week to him by the Department of Mental Hygiene. · "The department estimates there are approximately 100,000 i alcohol'"s in Marvland and that fewer than 7.000 of ftes* have oeen treated in specialized facilities, public or private," the governor said. "No effort is being made to locate, identify and treat the remaining 93,000, including an estimated 42,000 in industry, who | are losing time from work. "A recent study indicates that alcoholics and their families account for $6 million annually on the state's welfare budget, with no specialized services or attempt to restore them to eco- inomic independence. | "In all of Maryland there is 1 only one specialized unit outside i of the four state mental hospit- i als for emergency treatment of acutely intoxicated alcoholics-| a small, private service in Prov- I ident Hospital in Baltimore." Gov Agnew concluded that efforts to cope with the problem "have been meager in relation to its magnitude " Scholarship Winners Announced Sixteen Frederick County students have been named winners loi state senatorial scholarships to colleges throughout the state.

Shankle, a Frederick native who commutes back and forth i to Washington, to work on the restoration of the theatre where President Abraham Lincoln was shot, explained it this way: "Workmen down at the kiln in Orange, Va., (where the bricks were made) frequently mark their initials on the bricks just before they put them Into the oven. "It was a thousand-to-one shot that I'd spot these bricks in the game load. After I found the one marked 'Vote' I looked for one with JFK." But Shankle discovered "LBJ" instead. "The foreman spotted the bricks and their message and was going to have them dug up until I talked him out of it. "I thought the whole thing was a good idea since there is an election year coming up and I'm a Democrat anyway." But Shankle, who has been a bricklayer in the Wastujgton area for 19 years, couldrifex- plain why anyone woulL*rite the word "Vote" on a tntfc. 14 Survive Plane Crash In Atlantic SCITUATE, Mass.
