Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 'HE IETHBR1DGE HERALD Saturday, March 17, 1973 Army declares war on narcotics By DAVID MINTHOnN FMEDBERG, Germ any (AP) _ "Man, all tills re- cruiting jive about the new nrmy, every man a king. It's a new army, all right, like living in a cell Week." The young soldier smiled grimly. "Back home in civil- ian life, you have a right to lock your bedroom door, but not in barracks in Ger- many." .The United Stales Army Europe has declared war on soldiers who abuse narcotics. Tho campaign is focused on drug pockets in crowded, often nindown barracks. Army officials say five to cigjit per cent of UK American soldiers in W e s t Germany are hard drugs such as heroin, ampJieta- mines and barbiturates. Hal! the members of some com- pany sized units are sus- pected users of hashish. Mandatory urinalysls tests show that the drug epidemic hero rivals that of peak Viet- nam proportions. "The drug situation is a near disaster, declared Army Secretary Robert Froahlke after a tour of U.S. Army units in West Germany. "We have an obHgatton to clean up these barracks at nearly any cost." Tough new regulations cov- ering off duty time already have erased most of the lib- in the barracks find unre- stricted pass' privileges. Twice nightly tiedchecks round-the-clock patrolling barracks hallways arc ed at countering thefts, and assaults linked by the army to drug abuse. Drug offenders and sus- pects may be hit with severe penalties at the discretion of their commander.

Another displays the work of contemporary masters like Cecil Beaton and the fam- iliar celebrity portraits of Ca- nadian Yousuf Karen. All lire part at the picture collection at the Roy- al Photographic Society, which documents the history of the medium from its be- ginnings in the 1840s to the present day. Already the largest and most comprehensive in the world, the collection is still growing as the society exam- ines old family albums and the contents of liquidated pho- tographic studios in search of likely material. The society's exhibition also includes books about photography and a museum of equipment ranging from the cameras of W. H. Feat Talbot, the man who invent- ed the negative positive pro- cess in the 1840s, to the la- test models donated by lead- ing manufacturers. FAVORED BY PRINCE The cottage family scene 'was an 1885 work by Henry Peach Robinson, whose pho- tographs so impressed Prince Albert that the Prince Con- sort asked for copies of all his pictures in 1858. Some of hem were acquired by the society when it began build- ng its collection in 1900. The society itself was ounded as the Photographic Society in 1853. Its first sec- retary was Boger Tenton, a awyer who gave up his prac- ce to cover the Crimean far as a news photograph- er- Teuton's war pictures stim- ulated interest in the new me- dium and the society, per- U.S. tackles shortage of fuel oil milted by Queen Victoria to add the royal prefix to its name in 1893, grew to its present worldwide member- ship of some amateurs acd professionals. The members are divided into seven groups: color, 4 OR WASHINGTON The gov- ernment has begun to allocate some of its own offshore crude oil, so called royalty oil, to refiners in the Middle West in an effort to avert a shortage of diesel fuel on the farm. Such a shortage could nudge farm prices upward, officials fear. Oil specialists, however, are doubtful that the shortages of crude oil being experienced at Midwest Refineries can be fully remedied this year. Whether the refiners will turn out enough diesel and gas- oline'to meet all farm, industry and motoring needs is an open question in the Midwest as it is in much of the country. Tern porary local shortages of gas olrne have been predicted by many oil industry executives. Secretary of Agricultural Earl L. Butz and other experts fear that if farmers cannot get much diesel fuel as they need to operate tractors, har- vesters and other equipment, production may suffer. More production is the keystone of the administration's efforts to moderate the rising trend of farm and food prices. Substantial increases in acre- age devoted to corn, soybeans, wheat and other grains are ex- pected this year as farmers respond to changes in federal policy and higher prices. medical, motion picture, pho- to journalism, pictorial, sci- entific and technical, and his- torical.

There are portraits of politicians, poets, artists, the original Alice ol Alice in Wonderland and hundreds of men and women in working or domestic sur- roundings. The collection also includes Water Rats, an 180S photo- graph of little skinny dipping in a river. The pho- tographer, Frank Meadow Sulcliffe, was severely criti cized by local clergy for pro- ducing an "indecent print to the corruption of the young and the other sex." drug offensive as mass pun- ishment and a return to petty harass A communications special- ist who likes hashish told about a recent drug raid on his company baraacks by military police and dogs trained to sniff out illicit nar- cotics. "They shook us out of bed before IHJ related. "They marched us over to the post gym where we had to strip down to our under- wear. They checked our bo- dies for needle marks and they took urine samples. Then we marched back to our rooms and they seareh- ed our personal property." That raid on a company of men turned up eight sol- iers with narcotics needle mirks and three identified rom urine samples as drug abusers. Lawyers protest Capt. Michael Cohen, a 3rd Armored Division lawyer, is idvisiiig a group of soldiers complaining of civil rights vi- olations. I am not opposed to pros- ecuiion of criminals, but I am challenging some of the army's methods in fighting drug he said. "Once privileges, such as passes and locked doors, are granted, they cannot arbit- rarily be withdrawn from sol- diers who .are merely sus- pected and not formally charged wilh drug viola- lions." Capt. Tom Pearl, a 29-year- old lawyer, feels the barracks drug crackdown may lead to legal action against the army by soldiers recruited as vol- unteers. "It is a contractual prob- lie said. "The soldier is promised more personal freedom. Then all of a sudden these privileges are snatched away." All sides agreed that West Germany has become a ma- jor market for drug sates by international syndicates, "I can get anything I wanl in the hash it's all Iherc, reports a soldier slationed in Frank- furt.
