THE

Cost of Getting High
Gets Higher in Israel

TEL An, (JTA)--The sharp in-
crease in the price of narcotic
drugs in Israel was attributed by
police experts to police action. The
success of the Israeli special squad
formed to fight narcotics smug-
glers caused a shortage of supply.
As a result, prices skyrocketed.
