(AP) At Patton State Hospital there are alcoholics who report to the bar each day for drinking practice. They are being treated by wo researchers testmg a heory of alcoholism that con- radicts most current thinking and therapy. Many experts believe that a craving for alcohol is a dis- ease, a phyelologfcal condi- tion, and that abstinence is he only way to lick it. But Dr. Mark Sobell and Dr. Halmuth Schaefer, clini- cal professors of psychiatry at xima Linda University, mato- ain that an alcoholic's prob- ems are mostly psychological and that he can learn to be- come a social drinker. "We feel that with certain alcoholics the strata of absti- nence may be an additional stress that encourages them to Dr. Sobell said to an interview. yew-old nephew, and Michel LtctiUe, 8, a roads department employee. FLQ OCCUPATION Lortie told the court his occu- pation was member of the Front de Liberation du Quebec, his residence the Gaspe and his age "19 years of slavery under the establishment." The outlawed FLQ claimed responsibility for the Laporte death and the Oct. S abduction of British envoy James Cross. He was asked to identify i number of objects, including two saweoVrff M-l rifles, a gold chain carrying a religious a military cap, other ar- ticles of dotting and stained strips of doth. In each case, he said he ted never seen the object before. Once he snickered, and Mr. Jus- tice Nichols told him sternly there was netting to laugh about. Stabbing death checked EDMONTON (CP) Police are investigating the stabb i n g death Friday of Alexander Ray- mond Pambrun, 26, of no fixed address Pambrun was found on the floor of the washroom to a downtown discotheque, bleed- ing from several stab wounds. He died later to hospital. Inspector J. A. Lamoureux said no murder weapon was ound. He said Pambrun had no money when found. How ever robbery is not being considered as a motive. In refining their experimen- tal technique, Dr. Sobell and Dr. Schaefer have treat- ed about 500 alcoholics in the last 2tt years. In the last year, 28 have received On so- cial-drinking therapy. Every day the patient! drink three to five ounces of liquor. But therapists teach them to take it to small sips like social drinkers, not gulps typical of alcoholics. Each drink shouM last at least 20 minutes. While the patients drink, therapists direct conversation along constructive lines-no brooding, no maudlin self- pity. Believing that psycholog- ical stress lead to excessive drinking, the therapists try to learn what bothers each prob- lem drinker. Finally, the researchers diallenge patients to therapy sessions to re-live situations of stress or failure without hit- ting the bottle. Student beer-in almost washout at Calgary CALGARY (CP) The Uni versity of Calgary's highly-pub- licized "beer to" Friday was almost a "wash-out." Only 14 cases of beer were consumed at the craiet but illegal campus affair. The beer to was organized by a group of students the university to celebrate propos- ed new legislation by the Al berta government to lower the age of majority. One of the speakers movw that a telegram be sent to Premier Harry Strom thanldai him for lowering the age o majority. Lumber fraud charged MEDICINE HAT (CP) George and Harvey MaMr and Maser's Lumber Friday were ordered to trial on seven charges Involving fraud and KKsessiou of a rubber stamp allegedly used to forge a trade- mark. In committing the Mater irothera and the company to trial, the magistrate dropped eight other related charges against them, stating the evi- dence was not sufficient to tact these charges. A trial date is to be set at the next sitting of the Alberta Supreme Court April 5. The brothers and the com- pany were accused of selling umber to local businessmen 'while representing such lum- ber to be of a higher grade than its actual grade, thereby causing people to pay more money for the lumber than they would hare without such representation." The brothers were free on their own recognizance and bail. Vlid-Canada council backed EDMONTON (CP) Pre- mier Harry Strom said Friday has agreed to present the oncept cf a mid-Canada devel- opment council to the next fed- eral-provincial conference. The premier made the com- ment following a cabinet meet- ng with Bill Ziegter of Gdmon- on, vice-chairman of the mid- Canada development confer- on. Mr. Strom Mid the concept Laos operation hit by leader in U.S. senate WASHINGTON (Eeuter) Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield has questioned whether the United States- backed South Vietnamese incur- sion into Laos will have any real effect on North Vietnam's long-range mffltary capabilities and said it is a gamble that may not be worth the risk. In a Senate speech Friday Mansfield said: 'Rather than a shortening 0! the war and a further reduction of casualties, the consequences of this air-ground invasion may be to lengthen the war and in- crease the casualties. "The outcome of this new mil itary venture depends not only on the success of the South Viet namese forces in Laos but on the reaction there and else- where of the North1 Vietnamese and perhaps other Asian nations to the invasion." The Montana senator's low key speech represented the first de- tailed Democratic challenge to the rationale given by the He- publican administration for the thrust into Laos. Cable service gets go-ahead OTTAWA (CP) Capito Cable Television Co. Ltd. of Ed monton has been granted au ttority to increase its service area south and east of the city and into neighboring Sherwood Park, the Canadian Radio-Tele- vision Commission announced Friday. We have no eontroP says Taylor on jobless EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta legislature Friday ended its fifth day on debate on a non-confidence motion which has taken up more than half the time allotted for discussion of the speech from the throne. Only five of the allotted 10 days remain and debate on the motion, now restricted to Social Credit members, is due to re- sume Monday. The subject that now has oc- cupied about seven hours of the legislture's time is a motion of non-confidence which criticizes the government for not taking specific action to ease unem- ployment. It was proposed five days ago by Dave Russell (PC- Calgary Victoria Park) to the form of an amendment to the reply of the speech from the throne. It has limited the opposition to debate on unemployment is- sues only. However, the 10 Progressive Conservatives in the 65-seat house have already had their say on the motion and only the 55 Social Credit members now may speak on the issue. Highways Minister Gordon Taylor told the house that fight ing the affects of unemploy- ment is like putting on per- fume instead of taking a bath." "We must get at the he said. "Conditions over which we have no control create unem- ployment. We have programs to deal with it and policies to help case the burden but we should not be creating work for the sake of work we should do things that are ne- cessary" Among the causes of unem- ployment to Alberta at the end of January were high interest rates, high freight rates and problems to selling gram, he said.
