Schools to test i
WASHINGTON 'P) - The Nixon administra-
tion wants to look for traces of drugs in the
urine of high-school and grade-school students.
The first such drug-screening program, ten-
tatively scheduled to start Feb. 1 in a Harlem
school with grades five through eight, won't
force any student to submit to testing.
But Nixon's top drug-abuse officials say they
will supply federal "money for a compulsory pro-
gram if some locality wants one.
A spokesman for Dr. Jerome Jaffe, head of
Nixon's Special Action Office on Drug Abuse
Prevention, said he consider civilian drug screen-
ing programs a last resort, but adds "When kids
are dying, it may be time for last resorts."
Jaffee has called for public discussion of ci-
vilian drug screening like the Army's mandatory
urine testing of Vietnam GIs before they return
home. The Harlem project, which seeks $70,000
fromn the Office of Economic Opportunity, is the
first to be tried.
It was planned by the locally elected school
board in Harlem, and according to board chair-,
irine for drugs
man Calvin Alston, no child will be tested unless
permission is obtained from the parents and the
If testing turns up signs of drug use, school
officials will inform the parents and tell them
where to find treatment. The child's name won't
be given to police, health officials or anyone out-
side the school, Alston said.
If the parents agree to testing but the child
refuses, the student will be put in a "peer-group
discussion" to explain his refusal to his fellow
students, Alston said. If he still refuses "we let
him alone" he added.
Alston said the test school, Frederick Doug-
lass Intermediate School, has 1,700 pupils, and
that parents of 1,000 already have agreed to test-
He said he believes the school itself is rela-
tively free of drug addicts. Alston said the pro-
gram is inetnded to find and treat pupils who are
experimenting with drugs before they can be-

A third explosion in the c i t y
center was thought to be the

said later it blew up an unat-
tended car because of fears the
vehicle contained a bomb.
The explosions followed t h e
planting of five other bombs in
the city last week and the week-
end deaths of three policemen by
booby-trap devices in the interior
of the province.
Catholic and Protestant lead-
ers immediately condemned the
killings and Northern Ireland se-

Tension returned to the streets
of Belfast following the 1 a t e s t

telephone warning that a bomb

The Provisional IRA claimed
responsibility for the deaths of
two of the policemen in London-
derry. Two other policemen were
seriously injured when a booby-
trap bomb blew up their car.
The bombings and police kill-
ings are seen here as a strong
indication that supporters of a
new all-our military campaign
were gaining the upper hand
within the provisional wing.
