poorly investigated these areas." The
bureau is a citizen's group probing
possible conspiracies involved in the
Kennedy and King assassinations. It is
also interested in the implications mind
control techniques may have on mass
mind control, Lee said.
The use of mind control drugs by
government agencies goes back before
there even was a CIA. The government
has been investigating the use of drugs
from marijuana and LSD to hypnosis,
electroshock and ESP, Lee said.
Rationalization for such investigation
and experimentation by the gover-
npent was said to be a response. to

Russian technology in this area, accor-
ding to Lee. "This is a myth. What they
were actually interested in was con-
trolling their own agents, as well as
trying to get information from enemy
agents. They were looking for a weapon
to use in their intelligence operations,"
he said.
IN 1942, the Office of Strategic Ser-
vices (OSS) - the war-time CIA -
began exploring drugs and testing them
on everyone from "average citizens to
soldiers, mental patients, gangsters
and even their own intelligence agen-
ts," Lee said.
The first drug that OSS hit upon as a
truth drug was marijuana, he said. Pot

-- Is God Calling You? -
"There are movements of the soul, deeper than words can describe
and yet more powerful than any reason, which can give a man to know
beyond question or arguing or doubt, that the finger of God is here.
God does inspire men. Faith is required to accept that reality. Only in
the decision to go. . did I find the joy and interior peace that are marks
of God's true intervention in the soul." He Leadeth Me W. Ciszek SJ.

presence of the drug, but felt the effec-
ts, Lee explained.
Lee also summarized his in-
vestigation for truth drugs. On April 20,
1950 the CIA Launched Project
Bluebird, the first official CIA mind
control investigation. By August, 1951,
the project had phased into another
aspect under the name of Artichoke and
assumed a more aggressive theme, Lee
said, involving experiments with hyp-
nosis, ESP, and lobotomies, 1953

which was a major drug testing
program with 149 sub-projects, he ad-
Intejiest in developing mind control
drugs has gone through three distinct
phases, Lee said. The first was resear-
ch and development of the drugs. Here
basic lab work was involved 'and in-
terest centered around synthesizing
The second phase included testing the
drugs on various subjects, many of
which were unaware that they were
guinea pigs, Lee said.
"The CIA has never been punished
for testing these drugs illegally
although some deaths have been in-
volved," he said. The third phase ws
the operational aspects of the projects.
The drugs were used in covert
operations both domestically and in
foreign countries, Lee said.
LSD was investigated in 1951. It
proved only to be a catalyst for ex-
periences and not a truth drug at all,
Lee said. "It is a very powerful drug
and is a factor of investigation expan-
ding to other drugs. LSD accentuates
predispostion," Lee said. "The CIA was
looking for a weapon for their in-
telligence operations. LSD was used in
interrogrations, but CIA agents are
known to have taken it themselves.

Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan said yesterday
a new Camp David-type summit meeting may b needed
to break the deadlock in the stalled Egyptian Israeli peace
talks in Washington.

Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin agreed at the Camp David
summit called by President Carter to sign the treaty by
Dec. 17, but time is running out and it appears that target
date will not be met.
DAYAN AND ISRAELI Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman said yesterday they have no plans to meet with
Egyptian Prime Minister Mustafa Khalil to discuss the
deadlocked Mideast peace negotiations.
J(Khalil, who is in London, told Isreali radio he was

Dayan said there's "nothing in the reports" he will
meet with Khalil. Weizman wasi quoted by the Israeli
press as saying he has no plans to leave Israel, which has
been unwilling to reopen the;Washington talks on the draft
treaty Begin has said Israel is ready to sign.
THE EGYPTIANS want to renegotiatesseveral points
in the draft. Officials in Egypt and Israel hope Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance's upcoming trip to Cairo and
Jerusalem will help break the deadlock. Vance is due in
Cairo on Sunday and Jerusalem late Monday.
Cairo's official Middle East News Agency saidlKhalil
was to meet Dayan and Weizman in London or Bonn in the
next few days. Dayan will be in Switzerland until today.
The Jerusalem Post said in an editorial the Vance trip
might succeed if he offers ideas that could "move the
parties back to the original Camp David agreements."

to review the state law extensively
before she could decide whether it con-

Before yesterday's vote, there had
been widespread speculation that the
Lansing lawmakers would be unable to
pass any kind of legislation regarding
the drinking age proposal until after the
Christmas recess.
HOWEVER, IF the Senate passes the
motion next week, which is still doub-
tful according to Bullard, the bill would
take effect December 22, the same day

legislature doesn't move on the bill, the
current penalty which could require
first time offenders to spend up to 90
days in jail and pay fines up''to $100
would be in effect.
Bullard said he would meet with
Senate Majority Leader William Faust
(D-Westland) and Senate Judiciary
Committee Chairman Basil Brown (D-
Highland Park) to try to get the bill
pushed through the Senate as fast as
possible.-Bullard said the bill would
probably go first to the Judiciary
Committee and perhaps to the Senate
floor by the end of the week.
Bullard said that although Faust has
been "very receptive" to the bill, it
doesn't necessarily mean the
legislation will be passed before the
recess, scheduled to begin within a few,
"WE'VE BEEN pushing Faust and
we'll continue to do so. But I think time
is short, and we still may not be able to
pass anything in this session," said
Several weeks ago when the Ann Ar-
bor lawmaker said he would introduce
his proposal, his aide, Dan Sharp, con-

cluded it might be necessary to make a
"trade-off" arrangement by hardening
the penalty imposed on-those convicted
of selling liquor to minors to get other
legislators to vote for the bill.
But Sharp said yesterday no such
trade-off proved necessary although
Bullard mentioned the change over the
local authority issue was a concession.
"We decided to accept that part
because we didh't want to get bogged
down ' on it.' We' wanted it out of the
House as soon as possible," said
He said another amendment which
was introduced yesterday but failed
would have allowed city administrators
to place the local jurisdiction issue on
the city ballot to let the voters decide.
But he added that many legislators
rejected that idea because they felt it
would have probably meant too low a
penalty. He did not mention what the
lawmakers' reaction would be if the at-
torney general's legal advisors or the
state's courts decide that local officials
do have discretion to set lower
