EL PASO, Tex. — The national
commander of the Jewish War
Veterans of the U.S.A. appealed
for more adequate programs to
rehabilitate returning Vietnam
veterans addicted to drugs.
According to Albert Schlossberg
of Milton, Mass., JWV national
commander, drug addiction and
psychological problems brought on
by drug abuse "have reached epi-
demic proportions."
While praising the army's am-
nesty program for drug addicts,
whereby a GI can turn himself
in and go unpunished if he sub-
mits to treatment, the commander
termed the program "a way for
the army to wash its hands of this
enormous problem and throw it
into the laps of the Veterans Ad-
ministration and other public and
private agencies."

LETTER BOX

Wants Judaica Dept.
in OP Public Library

Editor, The Jewish News:
New York, Philadelphia, Boston
and other communities have Ju-
daica sections in their public li-
braries. They include books on
Jewish religion, philosophy, his-
tory, social, political and literary
matters.
Oak Park with its large Jewish
population and numerous Jewish
religious and cultural institutions
should also establish a Judaica
department in its library in which
all books of Jewish interest "would
be concentrated and not scattered
all over the place.
Sincerely yours,
