MRRflNJC) WORLD OF SHOES till 9 p.m. 317A 6th SlrMt Downtown By PETER MICHAELSON OTTAWA (CP> Rising alcohol consumption in the 18-to-21 age group it worry- ing parents, social agen- cies and police. A country-wide survey by the Addiction Research Foundation of Toronto shows serious drinking problems among ever- younger people and an increase in drinking-driver offences and injuries among the young. In part this trend is related to the action of all 10 provinces and the two territories in reducing the legal minimum drinking age to 18 or 19 from 21 dur- mg the last four years. But experts suspect that illegal drug use, particular- ly marijuana, hashish and the psychedelics, may also be a factor. Ronald Doerr of the Alcoholism Foundation of Manitoba says youngsters in Grades 11 and 12 have moved away from other drugs to alcohol. "Drugs are damned hard to get when you're sitting on the bald-headed prairie, and they're also illegal. The 16 and 17-year-olds look old enough to get alcohol." PATIENTS INCREASE Joe Power of the Nova Scotia commission on drug dependency says only two persons under 20 were ad- mitted to the provincial hospital's short-term treat- ment program for alcohol problems in 1970. The drinking age was lowered to 19 in April, 1971, and nine patients under 20 were admitted that year. In 1972 it was 20. Mr. Power says young people are "naive about booze and the damage it might cause them." Dr. Andre Boudreau of the Prevention and Treat- ment of Alcoholism Centre in Quebec says there is drinking at an earlier age since the age limit was reduced to 18. Many 14- year-olds were getting into, pubs and taverns. Spokesmen in some other provinces said information about drinking habits is sketchy and unreliable. However, there was general agreement that consumption is higher. A survey of Toronto high- school students in 1972, a year after the drinking age was lowered, showed a radical shift in the drug- use pattern. DRINKERS DOUBLED Marijuana and hashish use increased about 10 per cent from 1970 while the use of LSD was down. But twice as many students were drinking. In Toronto in 1970, fewer than SO charges of im- paired driving were laid against drivers 18 to 20 years old. In the second half of 1971 alone, charges soared to 259, although the increase is partly attributed to the breath- analysis machine which came into wide use. Alcohol is the worst drug curse affecting society today, says Toronto law professor Gerald Le Dain, chairman of the commis- sion of inquiry into the non- medical use of drugs. The commission's final report, published Dec. 14, says that as long as alcohol and tobacco use "continues to spread in all age groups ...there is little hope of be- ing able to develop a general climate of restraint with respect to non-medical drugs." An editorial in" the January issue of 4bft Addi- tion ResearCaVrFou dation's journal iiys, "the endless regurgitation of. beer commercials featur-j ing modish kids in foresl boats and balloons in- dicates how vital a marketV the young have become for merchandising interests." The Le Dain commission says a total ban on alcohol advertising is advisable. Failing this, the ads should be restricted to "truthful, matter-of-fact descrip- tion." The research foundation says the federal government's non-medical drug use directorate promised a study on al- cohol's effects in 1972, but did nothing. The foundation says more studies are needed to guide government social policies. 1 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I am a 15-year-old girl and if I don't get help soon I will be ruined socially. I enjoy fun and jokes and laughter, but when I get to laughing really hard I wet my pants. I have been embarrass- ed dozens of times and there seems to be no way to prevent it. Do I need a head doctor or what? Are there some exer- cises I can take? Is it possible that I have a kidney problem ANN'S FABRICS AND DRAPERY FABULOUS Don't Miss This Chance To Save OF BRUSHED PLAIDS ton Range 375 70% Acrylic, 25% Cotton 5% O.F.

I was uptight, scared to death he'd say something funny and set me off. This is no way to go through life, Ann. Can you help me? Afraid To Laugh InN.J. Dear A.: First see a urologist and find out if there's an organic problem. (In older women who have had several children, your "complaint" is not uncom- mon. A simple surgical procedure is the answer for If there is no organic problem the solution might be a special medication. Involun- tary action can sometimes be controlled by a drug. By all means check it out with a doc- tor. In the meantime, wear rubber pants and I'm not kid- ding. Dear Ann Landers: I am still upset by the news items about the woman teetering on a window ledge, threatening to kill herself. Someone in the crowd below shouted, "Jump. Nobody gives a damn She did jump and now she is dead. That story really got to me because I very nearly com- mitted suicide myself but I was lucky enough to have someone around who DID give, a damn My heart aches for that man who told her to jump. There is something tragic about a person who is so uncaring. I wonder what happened in his life that made him that way Thousands of heartbreaking deaths occur every day murders, accidents, a young child or a genius at the height of his career. Then there are deaths that don't seem to matter much. But, like John Donne, I believe "each man's death diminishes me I thank God every day that when I teetered on the ledge someone was near to save me. No Name, please Dear N. N.: Thank you for a beautiful letter. But please allow me to add a thought, in fairness to those who have lost a loved one to suicide. Some authorities believe that a person who is bent on destroying himself will do so and no amount of loving or caring can prevent it. They say suicidal personalities have a fragile link in the psy- chic chain that cannot be reached or repaired. Often there is no hint, no signal for help. The person who swallows a handful of pills, just enough to punish an indifferent spouse or an unfaithful lover, doesn't really want to die. He is indeed signalling for help. But the one who takes 100 pills, or a revolver, or jumps unseen, that's another story.
