Baltimore Jews
Sponsor Program,
on Drug Abuse

BALTIMORE (JTA)—A demon-
stration program to deal with
drug abuse, described as the first
attempt in the area "to treat the
total problem as well as the indi-
vidual," has been announced by the
Associated Jewish Charities and
Welfare Fund.
Irving Blum, president of the
AJCWF, said Northwest Drug
Alert would operate a treatment,
rehabilitation and evaluation cen-
ter at Sinai Hospital. He said ini-
tial financing would be provided
by the Baltimore United Fund and
the Asssociated Jewish Charities.
He added that the project had
been developed to serve as a
"demonstration program intended
to lead the way for future action
by government and voluntary agen-
cies at all levels."
The project has the approval of
the Maryland Drug Abuse Author-
ity and the Maryland Medical and
Chirurgical Society, he reported.
Blum said that the pilot Pro-
gram "combines education,
treatment, therapy, rehabilita-
tion, couseling, evaluation, social
action, liaison with courts and
schools and vocational assistance.
This is the first attempt to treat
the total problem as well as the
individual," he added.
He stressed that the program
was one with limited funds but ex-
pressed the belief that it would
have "a great impact on the com-
munity generally and on indviduaLs
and families caught up in the drug
problem."
He reported that a number of
social agencies will provide coun-
seling for drug users and parents,
preventive education programs, lia-
ison with courts and schools, vo-
cational guidance and social action
programs.
These services will be available
from both agencies serving the
general population and those serv-
ing Jews. He explained that as a
demonstration project, the program
"seeks to motivate government to
come to grips with this most ser-
ious problem facing America to-
day. While the private sector can
help, the dimensions of the prob-
lem require massive public action."

JDL Member Queried
in NY Office Bombing

NEW 'YORK (JTA)—A member
of the Jewish Defense League was
picked up by the police for ques-
tioning in connection with a bomb
blast that wrecked the New York
office of the Palestine Liberation
Organization, the central guerrilla
administration headquartered in
Beirut.
The police, who released the
JDL member after questioning,
declined to give his name. Police
said later that they were looking
for an "Arabic-looking" man with
an "Afro-type" haircut who is sus-
pected of planting the bomb.
Rabbi Heir Kahane, national
chairman of the JDL, refused to
comment on the questioning of its
member. The JDL has frequently
threatened retaliation for Arab ter-
rorist acts against Jews.
The police said that a bomb,
apparently placed in an attache
case outside the PLO's Park
Avenue office, exploded shortly
after 11 p.m. Oct. 6 blowing out
windows on the floor and knock-
ing down walls. No one was in-
jured.
United Press International re-
ported that it received a phone call
about a half hour before the ex-
plosion saying that the building
had been bombed. The anonymous
caller used the phrase "Never
again," a JDL slogan.
The PLO said that the bombing
was the third "attempt to intimi-
date the Palestinians" in the past ,
year and the work of "fascist" ele-
ments seeking to stifle difference
of 9P.in.
