HAMMOND Executive Director, National Coordinating Council on Drug Education The hardest thing about solving some problems is ad- mitting that they exist. Once over the "honesty gap," it gets easier to talk about an- swers, solutions, formulas for action. This is particularly true when approaching drug abuse; we dragged through several tragic years in the United States without ac- knowledging drug abuse problems. But now, many communi- ties have taken the first step. They've taken a long, hard look at themselves and writ- ten candid notes on what they ' found: addiction in many American cities and towns, big and small; experimenta- tion turning into habitua- tion ; escapism in pills, leaves, powders, liquids; Dad's too many martinis; Mom's pill parade; Junior's skin pop- ping now and then, and then, and then again. After the investigations and the studies, and after the admission of real trouble--if it exists--the next question is obvious: What do we do? What do I do? It's at this point that many communities have made a mistake. People have panicked, and in their panic have rushed out to es- tablish anything, something, called a drug abuse program : lectures, panel discussions, classroom conferences, hot lines, drop-out centers, drop- in centers, storefronts, base- ment coffee houses, rehabili- tation clinics, on and on and on.- Some of these programs have been effective, but some have been a dismal waste of time and money. eDEFUNIAK SPRINGS eROBERTsDALE CHRIST IS BORN IN A MANGER F ram THE LIVING BIBLE Abo~t this time Caesar Augustus, the peror, decreed that a census should be taken out the nation.

And while they were there, the time came baby to be born; and she gave birth to a son. She wrapped him in a blanket and lak a manger, because there was no room for the village inn.
