stances, this acid can be dadly to

Huron River.
He also blamed salt for damage
to roadside plants, automobile cor-
rosion, and creation of poor visi-
bility conditions. He estimated
that corrosion due to salt costs
Ann Arbor citizens three million
dollars per year.
Curl said that possible chemical
alternatives to roc salt are small
improvements. Glycol, used in car-
cooling systems, is very toxic, he
said, and urea, being a good fertil-
izer, is ecologically unsound.
According to Curl, the combina-
tion of salt with other methods
does little to prevent automobile
corrosion. He favors the elimina-
tion of salt as an ice control, and
proposd a ten-point program for
driver safety in winter, including
revised speed limits, required use
of snow tires, additional snow-re-
moving services, and greater use
of public transportation facilities.
Other speakers mentioned salt
as a cause of damage to water sys-
tems and to trees (especially map-
les) near public thoroughfares, and
as increasing. the cost the a u t o
repairs due to rust. Proposals
ranged from elimination of chem-
ical ice controls to finding an ac-
ceptable alternative to salt.
Arthur Gibson, manager of the
Traffic Safty Department of the
Michigan Auto Club, contested
Prof. Curl's statements favoring
elimination of de-icers. He cited
statewide statistics that showed
accidents resulting from icy streets
were higher in rural areas than in
cities, where the roads are gener-
ally salted.
Dr. Robert Hess, Director of the
University Highway Safety Com-
mittee, presented another set of
statistics, showing that the per-
centage of accidents due to icy
roads was actually greater in
Royal Oak than in nearby Pon-
tiac, even though Pontiac only
uses about 60 per cent as much
salt as Royal Oak.
Both sets of statistics wer chal-
lengd by committee members as
being highly dependent on o t h e r

WASHINGTON (A')-More than
half of Army enlisted men sur-
veyed last year in Vietnam ad-
mitted using marijuana at least
once and one in six said they used
it 200 or more times yearly, the
Army said yesterday.
The results of the survey, un-
veiled before a-"Senate subcommit-
tee on alcoholism and narcotics,
also showed 46.5 per cent of the
men polled believe marijuana
should be legalized, and 27 per
cent declared they would continue
using it.
Army officers testified no re-
search has been undertaken -to
learn the impact of drug usage
In combat situations. One of them

said he did not believe it was
widespread during combat, butl
was fairly common when troops
were relaxing after battle.
Capt. Morris D. Stanton, chief
of .the psychology section at Ft.
Meade, Md., told the senators he
surveyed 2,372 men-ranging from
private. to lieutenant colonel-at
a Cam Rahn Bay replacement
battalion in November 1969.
About half of those sampled
were entering- Vietnam for the
first time and the other half were
leaving it after one-year tours.
These were the major findings:
"--Results showed that' of the
994 outgoing enlisted men sur-
veyed, 53.2 per cent reported hav-

ing tried marijuana at least once
in their lives. About half these
men-50.1 per cent reported using
marijuana in Vietnam and 31.4
per cent reported use before en-
tering Vietnam."
"-One out of six of the 994 was
a habituated user in Vietnam-in
other words he used it 200 or more
times a year or more often than
once every ether day."
-The use of opium-usually in
the form of marjuana cigarettes
dipped in it-tripled in Vietnam.
The outgoing group reported 6.3
per cent had used it before en-
tering the country and 17.4 per
cent said they used it while in
-While not the only factor in-
volved, there was an indication of
"a slightly greater incidence of
marijuana use in areas where
combat is heaviest."
-The use of heroin, morphine
and "acid" or LSD did not not
show increases in Vietnam and
there was an indication of a drop
in LSD use.
-Few senior outgoing enlisted
men, and company and field grade
officers said they had ever used
Sen. Harold Hughes (D-Iowa)
commended the Army for reveal-
ing the Stanton study. Sen. Rich-
ard S. Schweiker (R-Pa.) called
it "sophisticated and credible"
and predicted it would become a
"benchmark" against -which to
measure the scope of the drug
abuse problem in the war zone.

threw some chemical - lye or
acid-on us," said one of the
women now in Saigon.
She had severe burns on the
face and neck, with large
chunks of charred flesh peeling
from aroundnher mouth, and
had heavy bandages on her
arms and legs. She said she was
from Long An Province in the
Mekong Delta and was sen-
tenced to 10 years in prison
after being arrested in Saigon
in December 1968.
The other woman, also badly
burned, said she had been sen-
tenced to three years and had
already served more than that,
but that prison authorities re-
fused to release her.
A policeman assigned to guard
the women at the hospital said

However, a guard at the jail
confirmed that the incident had
