Mexican President denounces .___________

U.S. poli
parting from usual diplomatic
practice, Mexican President
Luis Echeverria criticized the
United States across a broad
front yesterday as he began a
two-day state visit.
Echeverria, in an address to
a joint session of Congress, said
nations like Mexico "are suspic-

drug abuse
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (/P) -
Doctors worried about the poten-
tial problem of drug abuse
among demonstrators at the up-
coming national political con-
ventions bave gotten an offer
of help from an unexpected
source: the Yippies.
"We're going to do everything
we can to keep people f r o m
dealing heroin and cocaine to
our people. In fact, we're going
to hold a march against drugs
the day before the convention
opens," said Yippie Julie May-
nard of Madison, Wis.
Dr. Dan Sackinger, a patholo-
gist at Cedars of Lebanon Has-
pit I and chairman of the State
Committee on Dangerous Drugs,
said one of his main concerns
was "finding enough people who
have the experience to handle
problems such as bad trips and
drug overdoses."
Both Sackinger and Maynard
said drug abuse could peak
during the period between the
Democratic Convention July 10-
14 and the Republican Conven-
tion Aug. 21-23.
Some 100,000 protesters are ex-
pected to attend the conventions.
"We'll have lots of people
available when the conventions
actually are going on and every-
thing is _exciting, but I think
we'll have trouble finding peo-
ple to work during that month-
long lag between conventions
when enthusiasms start to flag,"
Sackinger said.
Maynard agreed. "The people
won't have much to do in that
period between conventions, and
I think that's when you'll see a
lot of them dropping drugs," she
said. "They'll be bored, so trip-
ping on acid will be something to
Asked if the Yippies would
hand a heroin dealer over 'o the
police, Maynard answered, "No,
but we can take care of him
ourselves. We'll just take his
drugs away from him and tell
him to get out of town."
Sackinger said street teams
to provide first aid for all kinds
of medical emergencies would be
on the job during both conven-
He said, however, that one

identifying what kind of drugs
an overdose victim took.
"A lot of the drugs are adult-
erated with things like strychn-
ine, and the difference between
a non-lethal dose and a lethal

Asked if he would accept Yip-
pies as members of the dru
abuse medical teams, Sackinger
replied, "sure."
