War on drugs Community Effort urged Ford suggests Independent listener to watergate tapes a perhaps we have to have a third or Neutral party take the tapes and get transcripts from them a Ford told a news conference Here where be is spending a golfing weekend. A i can to Tell you How it would work but i done to think ifs an impossible task to undertake. A a in a sure there can be if we look around hard enough someone who would do it As an Independent objective the new York times reported Friday that judiciary committee transcripts of some of the watergate tape recordings differ extensively and in Many cases significantly from the edited versions made Public by the White House. Words phrases and sometimes whole sections of conversations contained in the committee transcripts Are missing from or at variance with the expurgated White House narrative the paper reported. A i have said and it is becoming More Clear the preponderance of evidence favors the president Ford stated. A after scanning reports yesterday that appeared in the new York times my opinion has not changed. I think you have to Bear in mind the transcript of the tapes As interpreted by the committee May be subject to some second of two articles a drug abuse in Brown county i believe is one of the major problems facing Law enforcement and Community leaders today a Danny Neal Brown county sheriff said. A we have found that upgraded enforcement alone will not be sufficient to combat this serious problem a he said. A we need the Community involvement and cooperation combined with new techniques of education aimed at the family level focusing attention on human relationships and personal interactions to help people Deal More effectively with personal problems in a family context a he said. A i believe that drug abuse can probably be prevented in hundreds of instances if people can learn to Cope with their own lives and their own problems and uncertainties and again prevail themselves of the personal interaction afforded by the family process a the sheriff said. He explained there is evidence that treatment of drug abusers has become More effective if the doctors include the whole family unit instead of just the patient. The effectiveness is partly due to awareness and reactions of the parents facing the problems Neal said. A what i believe i can do As the chief Law enforcement officer of Brown county is to educate myself and my men with the Ding abuse problem areas in this country and find ways of preventing and deterring the problem a the sheriff said. A i also believe that i and my staff can build Bridges Between Law enforcement professionals and youth leaders parents school officials and Street leaders to meet on common ground in order to discuss the Lake edition featured today summer and outdoor living go hand in hand.

Sunset today 8 48, Sunrise monday 6 29. Impeachment panel speeds inquiry by John Beckler associated press writer Washington a the House judiciary committee is planning to limit sharply the number of witnesses called in its impeachment inquiry and the areas in which they will be questioned. Under increasing pressures to wind up the inquiry in the next three or four weeks the committee is expected to decide that Only five or six witnesses will be needed. That would include witnesses recommended by the inquiry staff by committee members and by James St. Hair who is in charge of president Nixon a impeachment defense. The witnesses will be examined Only on specific Points where gaps appear in the com Mitteer a documentary evidence or where there is conflicting evidence. Longer sworn statements from witnesses would be available to the members. Few major watergate figures except former White House counsel Charles w. Colson Are Likely to be on the witness list. The committee has the testimony of the others from the grand jury and the Senate watergate hearings. Colson reportedly told committee attorneys that he warned Nixon in january and in february of 1973 that former atty. Gen. John n. Mitchell was involved in watergate. Nixon had said he Learned of High level involvement in the break in on March 21, 1973. Colson a attorney on saturday confirmed these accounts by columnist Jack Anderson and the new York daily news of Colson a testimony. The identity of the impeachment witnesses and the ground rules for questioning them will be worked out next week in a series of meetings that will also Settle the questions of How St. Clair presents his defense and whether evidence gathered in the inquiry will be made Public. At a meeting monday the committee is also expected to Issue another subpoena for White House tapes and documents. Nixon has refused to comply with four previous ones seeking watergate evidence. The new one will demand evidence relating to the settlement of an itt antitrust suit to political contributions by the Dairy Industry and to allegations the Nixon administration used the internal Revenue service for political purposes. One reason for the new subpoena is to build up the committees Case for making Nixon a noncompliance with subpoenas a possible ground for impeachment. The committee has also notified Nixon it will feel free to infer he is withholding incriminating evidence if he fails to provide material that could fill in some of the gaps in the Case. That there Are gaps is conceded by nearly every member. Some of Nixon a strongest defenders on the committee say nothing that could involve him in an impeachable offence has been proven so far. On the other hand a number of democrats say the documentary record already provides sufficient grounds for recommending that Nixon be brought to trial in the Senate. Problems before they become a matter for the court system and i Hope prevent heartache to Many Young people and their parents a Neal said. A from my Law enforcement viewpoint i realize the need for cooperation Between All agencies in enforcement a the sheriff said. A i feel that an Exchange of information on drug problems May serve As a catalyst for ideas and actions by other Law enforcement organizations and enhance All of our collective efforts to combat crime a he said. A was far As a drug pushers in Brown county Are concerned in a afraid there Are several people who make their living on the misery and misfortune of other people with their drug abuse problems especially in the area of controlled substances called amphetamines and barbiturates a the sheriff pointed out. A this statement i have made is not a contradiction to what police chief vie Fowler said last week a Neal continued. A but As a matter of rhetoric i believe when chief Fowler mentioned a dope Pusher a he was referring to dealers in heroin and hard narcotics. I am referring to the poly drugs All those drugs other than opiates which when properly prescribed have a medical use i feel that they Are very dangerous drugs when improperly used and withdrawal from either barbiturates and amphetamines can be physically and mentally severe a Neal said.
