claims Scott
is not dumb
WASHINGTON (M)-A spokes-
man for President Nixon said
yesterday that Sen. William
Scott, (R-Va.), described in a
New Times magazine as "the
dumbest congressman of them
all," sees Nixon often "and is
highly regarded in the White
House."
This was the response of Dep-
uty Press Secretary Gerald
Warren when asked to com-
ment about Scott's threat to
bring a libel suit against the
magazine New Times, which
questioned the senator's intel-
lectual capacity.
SCOTT SAID in response to
questions on Thursday that the
description was unwarranted
and threatened to sue the pub-
lication.
However, Scott said he feared
that if he sued and lost that
people might think the maga-
zine's claim is true.

MOSCOW (M) - The Soviet
government has issued a sweep-
ing set of national laws to com-
bat a growing narcotics prob-
lem.
The drug laws, carrying stiff
penalties for everything from
possession to "maintenance of a
narcotics haunt," were believed
to be the first having nation-
wide effect. In the past, only a
few of the country's 15 repub-
lics have had drug laws on their
books.
THE NEW PENALTIES, "for
the purpose of strengthening the
struggles against narcotics,"
were announced in the latest
Supreme Soviet Bulletin as De-
cree 275 signed by Soviet Presi-
dent Nikolai Podgorny.
In the absence of official sta-
tistics on the issue, the new
code was the clearest public
evidence yet that drugs have
attracted a significant number
of Russians.
Narcotics use in the U.S.S.R.
is not considered to be as wide
as in many Western nations. As
abroad, young people and the
artistic community are the
main consumers, and a Soviet
newspaper once cited the acute
shortage of sports and leisure
goods as a primary reason for
the growing popularity of nar-
cotics.
ALCOHOLISM remains the
nation's most chronic social
problem, resulting in massive
labor productivity shortfalls.
But some youths are evidently
turning from the traditional
vodka to narcotics.
The increase in drug usage
apparently reflects a desire to
escape from a world almost to-
tally cut off from information
and news from abroad and sat-
urated with official exhorta-
tions to study hard and become
a production member of the
workers' paradise.
The Soviet underworld has
apparently discovered a profit-
able business in narcotics pro-
duction and the statutes pro-
vide heavy labor camp terms
for convicted growers and
dealers.
THE DECREE did not identi-
fy any drugs, but marijuana
and hashish were believed to be
the principle drugs available.
There is also some evidence
that hallucinogenic drugs are
becoming popular.
A Moscow newspaper report-
ed the arrest of a man on dis-
covery of a two-pound cache of
LSD at a science laboratory.
The maximum sentence for
large - scale production, pur-
chasing or possession of drugs
destined for the black market

is now 15 years in a camp, the
stiffest punishment in the coun-
try short of death.
THE HIGHEST penalty 1ot
simple possession is five years,
while organizing or operating a
"narcotics haunt" can bring 10
years at-,forced labor.
The seriousness of the drug
problem was further indicated
in the national adoption of a
Russian federation code provid-
ing up to two years of forced
treatment for persistent drug
takers in "curative labor dis-
pensaries."
Laws similar to those just an-
nounced have been in effect in
the central Asian republics of
Turkmenia and Uzbekistan and
the republic of Georgia where
drug use is more traditional
than in the European sections
of the country.
