Nation's ills U.N. official decries Bill banning Viet duly advances in Calif. are blamed legalizing marijuana REPUBLIC BULLDOG Phoenix, Thaw., Jane 18,1WO The Arizona Republic on Nixon | Associated Press MILWAUKEE - Dr. George Albee, president of the American Psychological Association, said last night : the Nixon administration was a major contributor to the "underlying causes of the conflicts that are dividing our | country so sharply today." "I believe that the destruction of our nation may well I be at hand, and I am not alone," Albee, a professor of psychology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, said. He spoke to the Milwaukee chapter of the Wisconsin Psychiatric Association. "I suggest, as an oversimplification," he said, "that our government is in the clutches of the military industrial complex, of an authoritarian, moralistic, entire- search, antinurturent group of patrists ..." He defined "patrists," a word coined by another scientist, as people who "tend to be authoritarian, to seek the opportunity to follow strong, fatherlike leaders." 1 Males to this category, he said, "exaggerate the 'masculine virtues' which include militarism, war, sports, and cutthroat competition." Albee criticized the Nixon administration's health policies, particularly those in the , mental health field. "The mood these days of I persons concerned with the national mental health prog- ; rams swing all the way from 1 teeth-grinding anger to depression and desperation as the Nixon administration mixes its dreary potion of anti- intellectualism, reduced health funding, and de- emphasis on mental health programming, with general regression in the whole I health, education and welfare field," he said. "Neither our President nor vice president gives any clear public signs of compassion or concern for the poor, the weak, the sick, the unemployed. United Press International UNITED NATIONS (UPI) A top U.N. narcotics control official said yesterday it would be "wrong and very dangerous" to legalize use of marijuana before scientists complete their studies on its effects. Vladimir Kusevic of Yugoslavia, director of the U.N. division on narcotics in Geneva, said "any tendency to legalize marijuana would be wrong and very dangerous before we know" all about it. He said the trouble with cannabis—the scientific name for marijuana—was that it ranged in strength from the strongest type found in Mexico to the "feeblest" in the United States. He said one type was "80 times" stronger than the other > He compared the difference to that between a watered down beer and 80 proof alcohol. "Someone can smoke the feeble variety and feel nothing and on the other extreme get the 80 times stronger and harmful effect of the Mexican plant," he said. Kusevic said drug addiction was now common in many countries where it was unknown 20 years ago. While drug addiction always existed, he said, its spread in recent years was "due largely to modern and fast communications." Another factor was urbanization where large agglomerates of population with all MEN'S SUITS & SPORTCOATS 40% OFF JUSTER'S ffW.MAIN . SCOTTSDALEj their social problems became easier prey to drug abuse. "The biggest problem is opium and opiates," he said. The latter include morphine and heroin. The annual requirement of legally grown opium for medical purposes in recent years has been between 850 and 900 tons. The amount made available from illicit sources to the illegal market annually is estimated at 2,000 tons. He said the countries from which most of the illicit opium came stretched in a belt from Turkey in the west through Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Thailand, Burma. He said his U.N. office had no information on the Communist Chinese share of the market. The two Irgest producers of legal opium in the world are the Soviet Union and India. Both, he said, have efficient controls which make it very difficult for this output to leak into the illicit market. DAB WILL HAVE A IALL IF HIS GIFTS COME FROM TOWER PIAZA ...

The measure by Assemblyman John Vasconcellos, D-San Jose, was sent to the Ways and Means Committee on a split voice vite despite warnings it would be vetoed by Gov. Ronald Reagan if it cleared all legislative hurdles. "I'll vote for the damn bill this afternoon," said Assem- b 1 y m a n Carlos Bee, D-Hayward. "I know what's goint to happen to this bill. The governor, I'm sure, is never going to sign this if it ever reaches his desk." But numerous witnesses and Assemblyman Alan Siero- ty, D-Beverly Hills, contended the measure gave the legislature the chance to prove to voters — especially the young - that "the system" does work. 'It's a way of seeking legal change through the system," Sieroty said. "I think it would be unfortunate if we don't recognize the importance of • using the system." The bill is patterned after a new Massachusetts law pending before the courts. The vote sending the bill out of committee was greeted by loud cheers and applause from approximately 300 persons — many of ttiem students — who packed the hearing room. Although law students from throughout California led witnesses during the Committee's first session on the bill last month, the hearing yesterday Included testimony of support from major religious organizations, tiie carpenters union and a housewife. It was opposed by representatives of the National Guard Association, veterans organizations and lawyers who contended it either would have no effect or would be unconstitutional. "Fifty thousand of our youth have been killed and that is 50,000 too many," said the Rev. Andrew Juvinall, a San Francisco Methodist minister representing the Northern California Council of Churches. But Clarence Pease, a Sacramento lawyer and a major general in the Army reserve who has commanded a California National Guard division, said the bill would "place the individual serviceman in an almost impossible situation."
