Kissinger With President on Trip NIXON... Continued from Page One Americans of whom he spoke when he was nominated for President a year ago. It all fit together: the all-star baseball game (rained out), a ride in a cable car in San Francisco, banter with servicemen about sports, and, finally, of course, his spectator role at a great historical event. 1M President could not retrain from carrying on his joking about the all-star baseball game-with the men .who had been otherwise engaged in space as they peered from their isolation trailer aboard USS Hornet. From his "Gee, you look great" in saluting the astronauts to his declaration that this past week has been "the greatest week in the history of the world since the creation," Mr. Nixon expressed his unrestrained ebullience. The President scheduled briefing on Guam with the newsmen who were following him on his world tour and it is forecast that he will emphasize the constructive nature of the rest of his trip iq the light of the moon success. In Manilla on Saturday he will have to take up the problems of a nation which is asserting its independence from the United States regardless o! its achievements in the higher technologies. * ' More Difficult From there on the problems become progressively more dif ficult in Indonesia, Thailam and Vietnam itself. Mr. Nixon has a relatively free day on Wednesday, and it is assumed that if he goes to South Viet nam it will be then. But for the time being Mr. Nixon can carry on in the glow of his plea that we, meaning the whole world, should reach for the stars in the spirit of America's spacemen. • The President in his welcoming ceremony made no mention' of the future of the American space program and whether or not a program will be initiated now to place men on Mars before the century is out. This would have to be an undertaking several times the $24-billion scale of the Apollo program. Mr. Nixon appeared throughout his mid-Pacific journey in a business suit in % TaT REGISTER PHOTO BY LARRY NEIBERGALL A HAIR-SPRAY 15 Babies in Apartments HUNTiKERIDEA 1 Leit Without Fresh mk TALKS EASE AIR TIE-UP THREAT PROTECTION- Continued from Page One "restrained him just as hard as could* bust him in the mouth" hen "told him if I ever caught him again, I'd kill him on the spot."

Worsen Condition Marty Mann, the co-founder of the National Council on Alcoholism, said many doctors know so little about alcoholism that they worsen the condition of the alcoholic by prescribing tranquilizers. She said doctors learn little about alcoholism in medical school and see little of it during their hospital internships and residencies because two-thirds of the nation's hospitals will not accept alcoholics as patients. The doctor >s given the false impression, she said, that alcoholics are just skid row bums or beggars, while actually more than 10 per cent of alcoholics are middle- class Americans. "I haven't had a lot of confidence in the American Medical Association," commented Hughe?,* questioning what actions the profession has taken to help alcoholics. Public Responsibility Mrs. Mann, a recovered alcoholic, said she has spent the ast 25 years trying to convince people that alcoholism is a pub- mitment.

"General hospitals have been most reluctant to admit alcoholic patients," Terenzio said. "A large segment of the population still feels that alcoholism is a sign that a person is morally weak and not worth any help. The other social barrier is fear; fear that the patient will prove unmanageable on the general medical wards. "As for the medical barriers, this is a case where a patient falls into the 'crack.' Medical men have felt that the problem was psychiatric a.nd the psychiatrist has felt that the patients need medical detoxifi-' cation and were frequently too ill, particularly when withdraw- itiative and creativity passing to the Southeast Asians themselves.
