Mary, Janice, Lor any LOS ANGELES (Renter) I President Nixon said Wednes- day night that South Vietnam soon will he able to undertake ts complete defence without assistance from the United States. Nixon, speaking at a Republi- can fund-raising dinner, did not elaborate, but appeared to be predicting that the South Viet- namese were moving to take over the air war now being con- ducted by U.S. bombers over North Vietnam. The United States has with- drawn more than troops since Nixon entered the White House in 1969, and has ended its ground combat role in Viet- am. The president, appealing for four more years in the White House, said he was achieving his goals in Vietnam without staining the honor of the United States or abandoning its South- east Asian ally. raine, Teresa and Ed. 9319 NELSON Wo wish to ex press our sincere gratitude to all our relatives, friends a n c neighbors for their kindness and sympathy shown us during our bereavement in the loss of a (bar husband, father and grand- father.

Polrier, is one of a series of pa- pers the police chiefs' will be ssuing during the coming months. On drugs, the organization says there are definite signs marijuana users graduate to liigher drugs like heroin. "A drug is a drug, and un- controlled, all drugs eventually have the same effect."

"If we are lo enjoy greater rcedom it is not by being enient towards those who re- ect the democratically made aws of society but rather by rejecting them from the society upon which they prey." The police chief endorsed an appendix to their position paper ,vhich recommends Etiffer drug laws-including a mandatory 10- year jail lerm for traffickers- jigger police drug squads and ail terms for drug offenders ;hat resist trealment.
