Ken Low, in a brief today to the cily social services com- niiltce, said his estimate that students h a d been in- volved wilh drugs was conser- vative. Research since the bcginuiiig of September has indicated an increasing number of people are having serious problems wilh drugs. "I find a increasing number, of young people drifiling into se- rious difficulty Ihrough a com- bination of naivity and peer- group pressures. "There is very little of a con- structive influence being felt in this area.1' Mr. Low recommended sup- Pravda Raps Sub Base Allegations MOSCOW (Re.ulcrs) In the first Soviet press comment on American allegations that Rus- sia is building a submarine base in Cuba, Pravda today charged that Washington "thoughtlessly fabricates hollow sounding prop- S weeps takes Innovation Announced DUBLIN (AP) A prize will be awarded the holder of the first ticket drawn in fu- ture Irish sweepstakes, includ- ing the next sweepstake draw Dec, 21.

The Communist party news- paper did not specifically men- tion the charge made last Fri- day that the Soviet Union is constructing a submarine base at the Cuban port of Cienfuegos, but it clearly referred to this. At the same time, Pravda commentator Ratiani spoke of the responsibility of the United Stales and the Soviet Union for the maintenance of peace, Hatiani suggested the alleged propaganda campaign arose from a briefing for American columnists given by senior ad- ministration officials in Chi- cago. Judging by the results, t h e philosophy expounded at this briefing appeared to be "a re- turn to the old times which did not bring success to American Ratiani wrote. The aim of the campaign was to heighten international ten- sion, create an atmosphere of war hysteria and put pressure on certain olhar capitalist states.

Edmondson, known in Canada as Alex Boorman. has been de ported lo the United States where he is believed appealing a sentence on a 1962 armed-rob bery charge for which he now has been tried three times. With no formal training, Ed mondson worked as an engineer for Consolidated Balhurst Ltd of Shawville, Que., and was re- sponsible for construction of the West German pavilion at Expo 67. His problems started in 1962 when he pleaded guilty to the armed robbery charge in Joplin Miss., and was sentenced Lo 3( years. lie escaped jail and was re. sentenced but at a subsequent trial on the armed robberj charge had his sentence re- duced lo 10 years.

Chief M. J. Kent blamed hos- pitals for not accepting mental pntienls brought lo them by po- lice, forcing the police to hold them in jai! until they are scheduled to appear in court. The commission agreed to write a letter asking James Henderson, A 1 b e r t a's health minister, the menial health planning commission and city hospitals for a unified effort lo prevent what mayor Rod Syfces describes as the "keeping of sick people in jails." Chief Kent said that when po- lice are executing a warrant to pick up a known mental case, the usual procedure is to seek admittance to a city hospital. But if admittance is declined, police are forced to house the person in jail. On more lhan one occasion, lie said, "we have had to use a straight jacket in our cells when a needle would have worked much better to restrain the person. "But we can't administer any medication only the hospi- tals can." Cyclist Killed On Air Strip CALGARY (CP) James Allan Boyd, 17, was killed when he lost control of his motor- cycle on an abandoned air strip in the southwest part of .he city Tuesday.

Installed in the victim's telephone, Ihls device can relay conversa- tions over thousands of miles. The eavesdropper activales Ihe bug by dialing Ihe Vic- tim's phone number and blow- ing a predetermined note on a harmonica. This prevenls tho phone from ringing but ena- bles it to pick up any sation in the room. Jon.es also discussed ths beeper. A small radio ''transmitter, magnetically at- tached inside the victim's car bumper, enables it to be tracked by another vehicle. In some circumstances, Jones says, individuals them- selves may be tracked by radar. But this prohably has more entertainment than det- ective value since the "dop- pler as it is called, can distinguish women from men from the swing of their buttocks. Experts say it is also possi- ble to: ordinary window p ..as into snooping devices by using a laser beam lo mon- itor vibrations on the glass from sound waves inside the room. the movement of an individual inside a building by the tilt in the structure as his weight is moved from one room to another. highly-sensitive ther- mal detectors to discover where a person has been sit- ting or lying. But the greatest contro- versy may one day arise over thought control techniques which involve tampering with the subconscious. The behavior of animals can already be modified by send- ing signals lo electrodes im- planted in Ihe brain. It may be possible to do the same wilh human Icings. Transmitting the electrical activity of a victim's brain to a distant recorder might also be feasible. Tlie conference also will dis- cuss Ihe rather less blatant assault on privacy caused by the development of computer- ized information. A system is reported (o bs practicable whereby 10 reels containing yards of tape punched by a microscopic laser beam could store a dos- sier on every man, woman and child in the world.
