C.S.C. to aid alcoholics The Civil Service Commission has instructed Federal agencies to establish programs forthe pre- vention and treatment of alcohol- ism as it affects the Federal ci- vilian work force. Deadline for implementing agency programs is December 1, according to a July Federal Personnel Manual System letter distributed by the Com- mission. Commission guidance places al- coholism in the perspective en- dorsed by the American Medical Association about five years ago, when the AMA termed alcoholism a "highly complex illness" and de- scribed alcoholics as treatable patients. According to the CSC letter, the Comptroller General estimates annual payroll losses resulting from alcoholismand problem drink- ing among Federal employees alone to be as high as $550 million an- nually. Commission guidance emphasizes that agency programs should be designed to bring the problem of alcoholism and alcohol abuse into the open. A primary purpose of local programs will be to inform all employees and managers of the policy established in the Public Law 91-616 enacted in December 1970 so that the social and moral stigma can be removed from the ailment through increased know- ledge and understanding. Commission guidance also em- phasizes the key role of the su- pervisor in an effective program to minimize alcoholism and alco- hol abuse as it affects job per- formance. The supervisor often is the only representative of man- agement who has close enough re- lationship to the employee to re- alize the existence of a problem He does not diagnose alcoholism, of course, since this is a deci- sion for the physician. However, his attitude about and support for the agency's program can re- sult in early detection, treat- ment and rehabilitation beneficial to both the employee and manage- ment. If it's news...

This was one of several proposals acted upon recently by the board. It was pointed out there are 450 children on the base par- ticipating in the scouting pro- grams, and there is no place lo- cally to obtain uniforms. However, to carry the scout uniforms, the Exchange would have to discontinue a proportionate line of articles due to limited floor space and a limit to the number and kind of items it can carry. Also, the uniforms may cost more through the Exchange than mail order because of the number of agents handling them. Many other suggestions and questions have produced action and answers by the board. The line of infant clothing items in the Ex- change will be increased, but Icelandic products such as. canned fish balls and more cheese will not be added in the Commissary. This is due to regulations which require inspection of production plants which is not feasible here. In answer to where the Commis- sary gets its meat, it is pro- cured through an agent from vari- ous sectors of the U. S. and for- warded frozen via Norfolk and ocean cargo to Iceland.
