PBS Special To Study Problems Of Alcoholics ,By JAY SHAIinUTT NEW YOEK CAP):-- T h e Public Broadcasting Service tonight Is airing "Drink, Drtiuk, Drunk," a one-hour look at the lush lift;. It's must-see viewing for anyone concerned about 'the major disease called alcoholism. Produced by WQED In Pittsburgh and hosted by Carol Burnett, its main emphasis is on helping families and employers of problem drinkers spot the symptoms of alcoholics and suggesting how to best cope with alcoholics. But the heavy boozer might also do well to watch it. If only for a very funny, yet razor- sharp sketch about an alcoholic and his nondrinking, nagging wife. It was written by the husband-and-wife team of Joe Bologna and Renee Taylor. They're contestants in game show, "You Waste Your Life," in which the ceaselessly cheery m.c. (Ron Carey) notes the game is played for high lakes: "You can lose your wife, your family, your house, ·our selt-rcspect and your drapes." Contestant Boloyna, bleary- eyed und in a bathrobe, tells iboul himself this way: "Well, wiien I started drinking, I was a Supreme Court Justice. Th'en landed a fascinating job cleaning rugs, and now I'm semi-retired and living off my mother's savings." Points in the game ar.o scored by the back-and-fortlT Discussion Set The Republican Men's and Women's Clubs of Washington County will sponsor a meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday to discuss proposed Amendment 55, on the Nov. 5 ballot. The meeting will be at Ihe Ozarks 1 Eleclric Cooperative 3641 Wcdington Drive. The public is invited. isychological tactics common n situations of this kind: Lies by the drunk, nagging by the vite, remorse, hate, forgive^ ness, rage and so on. At one point she threatens to leave if he touches the gargte i(|ain, adding, "I'm taking all .he furniture and your Manlo- vani records and I'm turning the children against you. .. ." It's highly effective, as is a serious, albeit occasionally propagandizing minidrama in which Larry Blyden' plays the frustrated; · uncomprehending husband of a drunk, she por trayed by Ellen Madison. Over-all, the program, its production and promotion financed by a granl from the 3M Company, is an hour well spent. You might a s k why Carol Burnett agreed to host .the show. She .inswers the question in unflinching terms in the opening segment: "My parents died when they were 48 years old because they were drunks.'
