GRAY WASHINGTON (AP) Two Senate committees considering top-level nomi- nations in the new admin- istration grapple today with the question of how far they should go in forcing government offi- cials to dispose of personal financial holdings. Called Again And Gov. Walter Hickel Of Alaska, designated the new sec- retary of interior, was called for a third day of testimony before the Senate Interior Committee, which has been probing deeply into 'his experience; and his views. Winton W. Blount of Alabama, head of a large construction firm, appears before the Post Office Committee on his nomi- nation as postmaster general. No difficulties are anticipated. He is the last of the 12 cabinet nominees called to Capitol Hill for committee questioning prior 'to Senate voting on confirming the appointments. Despite the prolonged interro- gation of Hickel, which may ex- tend into Saturday, and to ques- tions over private finances, all 11 nominations are expected to receive speedy approval after Nixon's inauguration Monday. Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield indicated Thursday that confirmations might be completed by "next Tuesday. The questions about personal financial holdings involved Da- vid M. Kennedy, a Chicago banker named treasury secre- tary, .and David Packard .of Palo Alto, Calif.; chosen deputy secretary of defense. The Senate Finance Commit- tee, interviewing Kennedy, wai -told by'one of its members ..Thursday that Kennedy's stock- trust proposal constitutes "a clear conflict-of interest." Sen. .Albert Gore, D-Tenn., said in a letter to the committee that under the trust Kennedy would, not be actually divesting himself of stock in the Continen- tal Illinois Bank, which he has headed. Gore said some of his objec- tions applied also to Packard's plan to place in a trust, from which he would not profit, the million worth of stock he owns in the' Hewlett-Packard Co.

Police Launch Plan Against Narcotics By JOHN HARRIGAN Chief of Police Paul J. Tracy in a-news conference this morn- ing announced a program to edu- cate the public on dangers and signs of drug abuse, .and to stem a growing use of narcotics in the area. Detailing the course of action to be followed, he said that Nashua "is the only city in my knowledge to have two fulltime narcotics in- spectors on the police force." The two officers, William Burns and Thomas Jeffries, recently returned from Chicago, 111., after attending meetings on drug prob- lems. They.will soon go to the Federal Narcotics Investigating Agency !n Washington to learn new tediiiques. Meetings Planned Police emphasized the educa- tional aspect of the citywide cam- paign. "We want to get parents and organizations to help us save these youngsters from mental troubles resulting from drug abuse, and save them from pos- sible future trips to the State Hos-. Chief Tracy said. A meet- ing at St. Patrick's is planned for Jan. 22, at which police will dis- cuss drug problems with parents. On Feb. 4. a program for inter- ested parents will be hold in the Nashua High School auditorium at 7 p.m. On Feb. 13, an all-day drug-abuse program will be spon- sored by the Student Government Union and the police at Rivier College. Tracy pointed out that Nashua police have Made 40 arrests in 1368 for violations of drug laws. FUEL OIL SAVE MORE With LORDEN OIL CO. INC. Serving Ntlhut The number of investigatloni numbers many more than that, he said. "Investigations some- times prove fruitless, because have to have an affidavit to show that we have good reason to be- lieve drugs are being used at a reported party or gathering be- fore we can go to. Getting such affidavits, takes a lot of time." Police said that persons having knowledge of drug incidents tan call police without having to disclose their identities. Placing emphasis on the parents" role in the curbing of drug abuse, offi- cials said that police will carry: on various programs to teach .parents how to recognize indi- cations of drug use- in men- children. Inspector Jeffries, when asked how large the problem was in Nashua, said, "It's too early to tai what percentage of peoplt aie using drugs, but the her arrests indicates that we definitely have a problem." said that police thought most of the drugs used locally were be- ing brought up from the Boston area or other southern areas, but that authorities could not be surt of this. Many youngsters in Nashua; Chief Tracy said, start their drug experience with glue sniffing, us- ing "airplane glue" to fill tic bags. This practice, said Tra- cy, can result in liver and brain; ailments and can lead to death by -asphyxiation.' "Store owner! should keep track of heavy buy; ers of glue and let us he said. Sgt.
