During World War II, Mis Mexico May Replace Europe As Heroin Source WASHINGTON (AP) -- Aflcrlropcan laboratories wo years of decline, heroin afflc into the United States is eporteri on the upswing, with exico replacing Europe as the rimary source and conduit for he narcotic. Federal drug enforcement of- cials say the heroin is refined rom poppy plants grown in estern Mexico, then shipped nlo the U.S. At the same time, there is rowing trade in marijuana rom long-established sources n Mexico, leading to an intensified anlismuggling campaign along the 1,400-mile borer. But some officials acknowl- dge that U.S. government ef- rts to cope with the illicit ac- vity have been partially impeded by bureaucratic wrangl- among agencies with juris- iction over certain aspects of arcotics control. The Customs Service, which as concentrated its own borer drug interdiction efforts hiefly against the iMexican marijuana trade, contends that eroin traffic from there is neg- igible. Although heroin re nains priority No. 1 because of lie danger it poses, customs of- icials said synthetic drugs are heir biggest worry. However, t h e Drug Enforcement Administration, a year- Id Justice Department agency with which Customs has lashed frequently over en- orcement policy, buys Mexico las become the source of much as 50 per cent of the her- 3in reaching the United States. During the peak years of her- tin traffic. 1969-72, up to 80 pel- while. cent U.S. . of tht narcotic reaching shores came from hrough Europe. Only about 15 «r cent from Mexico. EASILY IDENTIFIED Mexican heroin is easily iden- ified by its brown color; the more refined product from Eu- But officials say there is no difference in Ihe potency. John R. Battels Jr., director of the drug agency, said brown heroin, once confined mostly to the West Coast, recently has been turning up in eastern cities--one indicator used to determine source. He says he is skeptical ot most drug statistics reported by government agencies and admits he is "not happy" even with the figures compiled by his own. The heroin situation is absessed by such indicators as seizures, quality of the drug, street prices and the number of deaths from overdose. The Customs. Service, deprived of some of its functions when tile drug agency was created in President Nixon's general overhaul of the drug enforcement system a year ago has doubled the number of indi vidual marijuana seizures from Mexico in the past 10 months. Agents seized more than 8f tons of marijuana between Oc tober and March and 25 tons in the March-April period alone when the Mexican harvest was in full swing, official reports show. In that time, Customs agents seized 8.33 pounds of heroin at all U.S. borders; 5.83 pounds came from Mexico. The shift lo Mexico as a ma jor heroin source is due in parl to the success of federal au thorities in breaking up cstab iishcri connections from Eu rope, the Middle East and Asia officials say. Bartcls says that while the nternational heroin traffic al ways has been controlled bj he Mafia, the Mexican con neclion only now is showing signs that "these guys are Tiow starting to get organized," he sair!. )lained thai tht Drug Knforcc- nent Administration, rcspon- ible for intelligence and follow- up investigations, does not provide them with information to catch smugglers at the border.

AP Drama Critic William lover wrote: "Among her peers, a mighty galaxy, she was recognized as remarkable quintescence of special talent, restless in comedy, but uniquely able to enthrall in drama with a com biaation of vocal nuance and sinuous grace." Critic Brooks Atkinson said in today's New York Times; "Something electric happened when she stepped on a stage. She was born to be an actress . . . . It she had a great reputation it was not because she had manufactured it. It was because --in addition lo that personal magnetism--she had (he integrity and taste of a lady."
