Jequirity bean deadly to people


By H1il Douglas Black

Recently Guantanamo Bay Custom Inspectors have
reported that necklaces made with the poisonous jequirity bean plant have been seized from travelers returning from R and R flights.
The jequirity bean plant, which is a native of this area, is a vine or climbing scrub with slender green stems. The leaves are
alternate, pinnate two to 5 inches along with eight to 20 pairs of slender leaflets one-half inch to one inch long.
The flowers are lavenderpink, white or yellow in clusters to three inches
long.
The seed pod is one to one and one-half inches long, in compact clusters of as many as two dozen.
The pod is green and soft in the late fall and winter, turning brown and dry in
spring, when it splits open and reveals the four to eight seeds inside.
In the immature state the oval seeds are one-fourth inch long, usually pink,
tipped with a black spot. They gradually become bright red as they mature, dry and harden.
These beans are very colorful and will easily attract attention, especially the attention of curious small children.
The seeds contain a highly toxic substance called abrin. When well chewed the seed is sufficient for the fatal poisoning of a human being.
Whole, mature, dry seeds may be swallowed and evacuated without harm, However, hard seeds that have been drilled for stringing revealing the pulp are dangerous.
Immature, tender seeds are the most dangerous for small


children and can cause fatalities.
Human poisoning symptoms may be delayed a few hours or up to two to three days. They include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, cold perspiration, trembling of the hands, weak,
rapid pulse, and rectal bleeding.
Necklaces strung with this bean have caused dermatitis in some wearers.


Parents should pariodically survey their children 's play area to ensure that no vines or seeds are present.
If you have seen any of
these plants anywhere on the base, call Grounds Division of the Public Works Department, at 4503 or 4789, or the
Preventive Medicine Department, 2877, so
arrangements can be made to remove them.

Ears, airplanes and altitude do not fly


By Too Joyce

(AFPS) -- Some airline' travelers who swallow hard during takeoff and landing do so out of sheer terror. But there is an advantage to swallowing hard unrelated to fear: It prevents your ears from blocking.
Blocked ears are the most common medical complaint of people who fly. And even though most problems are minor, some airline passengers have experienced temporary pain and hearing loss.
There are three parts of the ear, the outer ear (the part you can see plus the ear canal leading down to the ear
drum), the middle ear (ear drum, bones and air spaces behind the ear drum) and the inner ear (nerve endings). All discomfort during air travel comes from the middle ear because it is an air pocket inside the head that is vulnerable to changes in air pressure.
Swallowing allows air to enter the middle ear if the pressure in the Eustachian tube (a membrane-lined tube that connects the back of the
mose with the middle ear) is lower than the pressure on the outside of the tube. This

By Sue HiltonThe approach of each holiday tends to evoke pleasant childhood memories
for each of us. Easter is a joyous religious holiday that is sometimes perceived as being magical in the eyes and minds of children.
I remember crisp, spring air, dewey green grass, multicolored Easter eggs with little decals on them and the
dye that did not always wash right off your hands.
I remember my mother's patience as she poked holes in each end of a raw egg,
showed me how to remove its fluid, and helped me make an Easter egg tree to take to school.
From the back of a cabinet
an oval aluminum mold with ridges across its top would make its yearly appearance, and I would impatiently wait to lick the bowl after the almond frosting was on the light and spongy Easter Egg Cake. The aroma of ham,
covered with brown sugar and pineapple rings studded with cloves warmed the kitchen.
Every family has its own traiditons; intangible moments that are passed on the the next generation or to special friends and loved ones. Over the years our egg cake gave way to a "Bunny

3 eggs 1 tsp. baking soda'
2 cups sugar 1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup oil 1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
2 tsp. cinnamon 4 cups sliced, peeled tart apples
* Beat eggs, add sugar and oil. Add dry ingredients all at once, then add muts and vanilla. Spread apples in a lightly buttered 13x9 pan and'pour batter over them. Bale at 350 degrees for approx. 1 hour. Spread with icing: Mix 6-oz. softened cream cheese with 1/4 cup melted butter. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and 1 tsp. lemon juice.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar (cream together with butter)
4 eggs (Add one at a time)
Stir in one 1-pound 4-oz. can crushed pineapple with juice

process helps equalize air
pressure on both sides of the eardrum. If the air pressure is not equal, the ear feels
blocked.
Since air travel is
sometimes associated with rapid changes 'in a-ir pressure, the Eustachian tube must open and close often and wide enough to equalize the pressure.
Dr. Raymond Ten Eyck, assistant professor of military medicine at the
Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, the nation's only military
medical school, said most ear problems occur when airplanes
come in for a landing. The air pressure gets higher as you descend.
"The descent can cause a vacuum to form in the middle ear faster than normal," he said. "Travelers need to contract the small muscles at .the end of the Eustachian tube to equalize the pressure with the outside air."
Ten Eyck recommended yawning, chewing gum or swallowing hard to continue
'to equalize pressure during descent. He also encouraged
parents to have babies suck on a bottle to help equalize their air pressure.
"The real trouble could








Cake" with jelly beans for its eyes, nose, and vest buttons, that now, my children look forward to
eating at "Little Grandma's House."
A friend shared a pineapple
side dish for the ham and something new was added to the traditional dinner. A neighbor invited everyone over for cake and coffee one day, and her Washington Apple
Cake soon became a second desert to be offered to visiting friends and relatives.
For those of us spending our holidays here, it occurs
to me that we are not really "away from home." Home is in our minds and hearts, wherever we are, and our experiences here will. add new
dimensions to celebrations in the future.
Lindy Plackinger tells me that the GTMO cookbooks is temporarily sold out. More
have been ordered and should arrive soon, possibly in time for Mother's Day. She said they will be available
through Lynda Cox, President of the Officer's Wives Club. Watch for details in the Gazette.
I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we have.


Summer hires

Application forms can be
picked up at the NAVSTA
Legal Office in the Admin Bldg., Bldg. #760. Details
regarding filing
information for the sumner employment program will be
announced later.
Subject to the hiring
freeze, the Naval Base
Civilian Personnel Office (NBCPO) may hire students
for the summer work
program.
This program is open to
all U.S. and non-U.S.
dependent youths residing
on station who are at
least 14 years of age at
the time of appointment.
One condition of
employment, however,
requires that U.S. citizen dependent youth possess a social security number
prior to being hired.
Non-U.S. citizen dependent
youth are not required to comply with this request.
Those U.S. citizen
dependent youths who are
interested in sumner
employment under this program and who do not have a social security number are urged to begin applying for a number now.


Housing
inventory
Are you adequately insured? Do you have a record of your possessions, in case they are destroyed by fire or stolen?
Then the Naval Station Fire Department suggests you take time to itemize your, possessions and include purchase price, date of purchase, replacement cost
and appreciation. Without a detailed home inventory,
processing and collecting an insurance claim can be
difficult.
Photograph all your
possessions and write a description for larger, valuable items. Be sure to itemize each room. Keep the inventory list, photos and
receipts together in a safe location to prevent loss by fire or burlary.
Some items usually forgotten in a household
inventory include: books, records, pillows, plants, towels, vacuum cleaner, brooms, toys and games,
holiday decorations, office supplies, lawn and garden supplies, bikes and
recreation equipment.

come with being asleep during descent," cautioned Ten Eyck. "When asleep, you are not swallowing but once every five to seven minutes. That is not enough to keep up with changes in pressure."
.Travelers suffering cold symptms have a greater risk of experiencing ear problems, said Ten Eyck. He recommended
that they use a decongestant or nasal spray prior to takeoff. "Taking a decongestant at the time of landing is just too late," he pointed out.
If swallowing and yawning do not do the trick, pinch your nostrils shut, take a mouthful of air and try to
blow through your nose. When you hear a "pop," that means you have been successful. You
may need to repeat this procedure several times. But do not attempt to do this if you have a nose or throat infection because you could force the infection up into your ears.

Midshipmen.
Cleveland State advanced with a 75-69, triumphtover St. Joseph's.
In second-round action yesterday, unranked Auburn stunned third-ranked St.
John's, 81-65, behind Chuck Person's 27-point and 15-rebound performance.
The loss by St. John's means all of last year's final four teams have been
eliminated from this year's tournament.
Nevada-Las Vegas topped Maryland, 70-64, in yesterday's other West
Regional. The running Rebels ran off 13 unanswered points just after the Terrapins had scored the first 14 points of
the second half.
Auburn and UNLV meet
Thursday in Houston, just before two of last Saturday's winners, North Carolina and Louisville.
In what Iowa State coach Johnny Orr called his "biggest" victory, the Cyclones knocked Michigan out of the NCAA yesterday,
72-69. Jeff Grayer scored 16 points to help Iowa State defeat the Wolverines, who Orr took to the final-four a decade ago.
Also at the Metrodome in Minneapolis yesterday, North Carolina State needed double overtime to eliminate Arkansas-Little Rock 80-66. The Wolfpack got a big lift from Bennie Bolton, who scored all but two of his 24 points after halftime.
Iowa State and North Carolina State play in Kansas City on Friday, followed by Michigan State and nearby favorite Kansas.
At the Southeast Regional in Charlotte, Terry Coner' s
12-footer just before the final buzzer lifted Alabama over Illinois 58-56. The Crimson tide needed the


last-second bucket after blowing a 13-point,
first-half lead.
Alabama's whisker win sets up a date with Southeastern
Conference rival Kentucky Thursday in Atlanta. The
Wildcats advanced by outlasting Western Kentucky
71-64 behind Kenny Walker's 32 points.
Georgia Tech and Louisiana State also meet in Atlanta.
Thursday to wind up evening doubleheader.

Look for Kansas State to name Lon Kruger as a replacement for retiring
basketball coach Jack Hartman today. Yesterday, the
Associated Press learned of Kruger's pending appointment.
Kruger played for Hartman-in the early 1970s and also served on his staff before becoming head Coach at Pan
American University in Texas four years ago.
Hartman announced in January plans to step down after 16 seasons at Kansas State.

The Cleveland Cavali will make their playoff * with a new coach. The NBA team yesterday dismissed
George Karl less than a week after informing the second-year coach his contract would not be renewed.
Assistant Gene Littles replaces Karl on an interim basis. Cleveland stands a game and one-half in front of Chicago in the race for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
Last Thursday, Karl interviewed for the vacant
coaching job at the University of Pittsburgh.


Weinberger:t con't from page 1


"At the end of a period of time reasonable to measure the effectiveness of our aggressive anti-smoking campaign in decreasing use of tobacco by the troops, I will review our progress and
consider whether it would be appropriate, in addition, to
make changes in the present policies of tobacco sales in commissaries and post
exchanges," he wrote.
Some highlights of the health promotion directive are:
* Smoking prevention and quitting programs shall aim
to create an atmosphere that supports abstinence and discourages tobacco use, create a healthy work environment, and provide smokers with encouragement and professional assistance in quitting.

* Smoking will be prohibited in auditoriums, conference and classrooms, buses, vans, elevators, and unless adequate space and
ventilation to ensure a healthy environment is
available for nonsmokers, in eating areas and common work areas.
* Participation of DoD
components with manufacturers or distributors of alcohol or tobacco products will be disallowed in promotional programs, activities, or contests aimed primarily at DoD personnel.
* Commanders are to consider integrating physical
fitness regimens into normal


work routines for military
personnel, and the chain of command is to support community activities
promoting fitness among all DoD beneficiaries.
* Where feasible, in dining facilities, calorie
information is to be made available and meals containing reduced amounts of fat, salt, and calories are to be readily available; snack concessions and vending machines are to offer
nutritious alternatives such as fresh fruit, fruit juices, and whole grain products.
* Hypertension screening is to be provided as part of all
medical examinations and the annual dental examination for active duty members; each DoD medical facility is to offer periodically mass hypertension screening to all beneficiaries, to encourage them to monitor blood pressure regularly.
* Education campaigns will be required on topics such as alcohol and drug use and pregnancy, driving while in intoxicated, adolescent
alcohol and drug abuse, and misuse of alcohol and other drugs which emphasis on
eliminating illegal uses.
The directive approved by
Secretary Weinberger creates a high-level DOD health promotion coordinating committee headed by Dr. William Mayer, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, to coordinate and increase
health promotion activities throughout DoD.


The Sportsman

By Charles Morey


Ernie Lombardi may never have put on a clown's suit, but the sadness was there. It ran like a dark thread throughout his life.
It was probably inevitable the Ernie did not make the Hall of Fame until nine years after his death. He died in 1977, at the age of 69. The
Veteran' s Committee named him to Cooperstown last week, along with a crack Boston Red Sox second baseman, Bobby Doerr.
Lombardi twice led the ,National League in batting, in 1938 with the Reds, and in
_1942 when the Braves were still in Boston. His lifetime average was .306, and he
played in the big leagues for 17 seasons.
He was a man of enormous strength with a perfectly focused batting eye. 'He had excellent coordination. He
was such a slow runner that the infielders used to play him on the outfield grass. They knew they could throw him out on any ball they gloved, but they also did not
want to get too close to a Lombardi line drive.
Ernie had so much power that he could hit the ball eye-high against the left field fence without it
touching the ground.
He also, and it has to be said, had a nose that looked like a banana just before it becomes a banana split. This


earned him the derisive
nickname of "Schnozz."
Jimmy Duante parlayed that name into laughs. Lombardi did not like it. On one
occasion in the 1930s, when he played for Cincinnati, a New York teenager leaned out of the bleachers at the polo grounds to call out the passing Lombardi, "Hey, Schnozz!"
Ernie did not reply or show anger. He turned a pair of
large, luminous and very sad eyes on to the young wise guy. The boy shriveled inside. He never referred to Lombardi as "Schnozz" again.
Hard luck was a leech on his huge frame. Late in life,
with his personal affairs in disarray, he actually served as a press box custodian at Candlestick Park in San
Francisco. There is nothing wrong with that job, but it
is not quite the place you expect to find a future Hall of Faner.
He also was the victim in one of the more unusual plays in the World Series history. It happened in the fourth game of the 1939 series between Cincinnati and the
Yankees.
In the tenth inning, with the score tied, a Yankee
baserunner barreled into big Ernie at the plate, and knocked him down and virtually out. The Yankee runners paraded around the


bases, and New York went home with a sweep of the series.
Just the same, Lombardi was an All-Star five times.
His name belongs
Cooperstown. It was overduWe
Doerr was always a great pivotman on double plays, and now he will take the single step that all ballplayers dream of.
On August 3, at Cooperstown, N.Y., Bobby will step forward for his
induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Doerr played 14 seasons
with the Boston Red Sox, 13 of them full ones. He was a
second baseman, and he also was a productive hitter.
His lifetime batting average was .288, and he hit 223 home runs while batting in 1,247.
In the 13 seasons he
the regular second bases 'for Boston. Doerr averaged 17 homers a season, and 95 RBI 's.
Six times, he drove in 100 runs or more. He even led the
league in slugging percentage on one occasion, 1944, when he posted a .528.

He played on eight Anerican League All-Star teams, and led the circuit in fielding percentage four times. He also was the top wheeler-dealer in double plays in five seasons.

So does the number of survivors pulled from the ruins. Singapore authorities now say they estimate 100 people were in the hotel and the bank on its ground floor when the building collapsed Saturday. About 75, including the dead and the rescued, have been accounted for. Searchers keep finding more survivors in the tons of concrete rubble. The rescue of two people today brought cheers and applause from exhausted workers. Officials say the voices of several more survivors have been heard from the ruins. The cause of the collapse has not been determined. However, one man said he saw workers building wood supports in the hotel's underground parking garage just before the building collapsed. Weinberger outlines health promotions, education process Last week Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger ordered to put in p lace throughout the military a sweeping health promotion and education process focused on aggressive anti-smoking efforts, physical fitness, nutrition, alcohol and drug abuse, hypertension, and stress management. A departmental health promotion directive emphasizes education about health risks associated with smoking, use of drugs and alcohol, diet, lack of exercise, and hypertension. Each service is required to develop and conduct public information campaigns on the topics. "I have decided to direct that an intensive anti-smoking campaign be conducted at all levels of all services and that it become a major responsibility of all commanders and commanding officers, up to and including the highest levels of each service and the department," Secretary Weinberger said in a memorandum to the service secretaries.

Jequirity bean deadly to people By HlN1 Douglas Black Recently Guantanamo Bay Custom Inspectors have reported that necklaces made with the poisonous jequirity bean plant have been seized from travelers returning from R aid R flights. The jequirity bean plant, which is a native of this area, is a vine or climbing scrub with slender green stems. The leaves are alternate, pinnate two to 5 inches along with eight to 20 pairs of slender leaflets one-half inch to one inch long. The flowers are lavenderpink, white or yellow in clusters to three inches long. The seed pod is one to one aid one-half inches long, in compact clusters of as many as two dozen. The pod is green and soft in the late fall and winter, turning brown and dry in spring, when it splits open and reveals the four to eight seeds inside. In the immature state the oval seeds are one-fourth inch long, usually pink, tipped with a black spot. They gradually become bright red as they mature, dry and harden. These beans are very colorful and will easily attract attention, especially the attention of curious small children. The seeds contain a highly toxic substance called abrin. When well chewed the seed is sufficient for the fatal poisoning of a human being. Whole, mature, dry seeds may be swallowed and evacuated without harm, However, hard seeds that have been drilled for stringing revealing the pulp are dangerous. Immature, tender seeds are the most dangerous for small children and can cause fatalities. Human poisoning symptoms may be delayed a few hours or up to two to three days. They include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, cold perspiration, trembling of the hands, weak, rapid pulse, and rectal bleeding. Necklaces strung with this bean have caused dermatitis in some wearers. Parents should pariodically survey their children's play area to ensure that no vines or seeds are present. If you have seen any of these plants anywhere on the base, call Grounds Division of the Public Works Department, at 4503 or 4789, or the Preventive Medicine Department, 2877, so arrangements can be made to remove them.

Ears, airplanes and altitude do not fly By Tom Joyce (AFPS) -Some airline travelers who swallow hard during takeoff and landing do so out of sheer terror. But there is an advantage to swallowing hard unrelated to fear: It prevents your ears from blocking. Blocked ears are the most common medical complaint of people who fly. And even though most problems are minor, some airline passengers have experienced temporary pain and hearing loss. There are three parts of the ear, the outer ear (the part you can see plus the ear canal leading down to the ear drum), the middle ear (ear drum, bones and air spaces behind the ear drum) and the inner ear (nerve endings). All discomfort during air travel comes from the middle ear because it is an air pocket inside the head that is vulnerable to changes in air pressure. Swallowing allows air to enter the middle ear if the pressure in the Eustachian tube (a membrane-lined tube that connects the back of the mose with the middle ear) is lower than the pressure on the outside of the tube. This On a platt By Sue HiltonThe approach of each holiday tends to evoke pleasant childhood memories for each of us. Easter is a joyous religious holiday that is sometimes perceived as being magical in the eyes and minds of children. I remember crisp, spring air, dewey green grass, multicolored Easter eggs with little decals on them and the dye that did not always wash right off your hands. I remember my mother's patience as she poked holes in each end of a raw egg, showed me how to remove its fluid, and helped me make an Easter egg tree to take to school. From the back of a cabinet an oval aluminum mold with ridges across its top would make its yearly appearance, and I would impatiently wait to lick the bowl after the almond frosting was on the light and spongy Easter Egg Cake. The aroma of ham, covered with brown sugar and pineapple rings studded with cloves warmed the kitchen. Every family has its own traiditons; intangible moments that are passed on the the next generation or to special friends and loved ones. Over the years our egg cake gave way to a "Bunny process helps equalize air pressure on both sides of the eardrum. If the air pressure is not equal, the ear feels blocked. Since air travel is sometimes associated with rapid changes in air pressure, the Eustachian tube must open and close often and wide enough to equalize the pressure. Dr. Raymond Ten Eyck, assistant professor of military medicine at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, the nation's only military medical school, said most ear problems occur when airplanes come in for a landing. The air pressure gets higher as you descend. "The descent can cause a vacuum to form in the middle ear faster than normal," he said. "Travelers need to contract the small muscles at the end of the Eustachian tube to equalize the pressure with the outside air." Ten Eyck recommended yawning, chewing gum or swallowing hard to continue to equalize pressure during descent. He also encouraged parents to have babies suck on a bottle to help equalize their air pressure. "The real trouble could Cake" with jelly beans for its eyes, nose, and vest buttons, that now, my children look forward to eating at "Little Grandma's House." A friend shared a pineapple side dish for the ham and something new was added to the traditional dinner. A neighbor invited everyone over for cake and coffee one day, and her Washington Apple Cake soon became a second desert to be offered to visiting friends and relatives. For those of us spending our holidays here, it occurs to me that we are not really "away from home."

Lindy Plackinger tells me that the GTMO cookbooks is temporarily sold out. More have been ordered and should arrive soon, possibly in time for Mother's Day. She said they will be available through Lynda Cox, President of the Officer's Wives Club. Watch for details in the Gazette. I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we have.

"When asleep, you are not swallowing but once every five to seven minutes. That is not enough to keep up with changes in pressure." Travelers suffering cold symptms have a greater risk of experiencing ear problems, said Ten Eyck. He recommended that they use a decongestant or nasal spray prior to takeoff. "Taking a decongestant at the time of landing is just too late," he pointed out. If swallowing and yawning do not do the trick, pinch your nostrils shut, take a mouthful of air and try to blow through your nose. When you hear a "pop," that means you have been successful. You may need to repeat this procedure several times. But do not attempt to do this if you have a nose or throat infection because you could force the infection up into your ears. Summer hires Application forms can be picked up at the NAVSTA Legal Office in the Admin Bldg., Bldg. #760. Details regarding filing information for the summer employment program will be announced later. Subject to the hiring freeze, the Naval Base Civilian Personnel Office (NBCPO) may hire students for the summer work program. This program is open to all U.S. and non-U.S. dependent youths residing on station who are at least 14 years of age at the time of appointment. One condition of employment, however, requires that U.S. citizen dependent youth possess a social security number prior to being hired. Non-U.S. citizen dependent youth are not required to comply with this request. Those U.S. citizen dependent youths who are interested in summer employment under this program and who do not have a social security number are urged to begin applying for a number now. Housing inventory Are you adequately insured? Do you have a record of your possessions, in case they are destroyed by fire or stolen? Then the Naval Station Fire Department suggests you take time to itemize your., possessions and include purchase price, date of purchase, replacement cost and appreciation. Without a detailed home inventory, processing and collecting an insurance claim can be difficult. Photograph all your possessions and write a description for larger, valuable items. Be sure to itemize each room. Keep the inventory list, photos and receipts together in a safe location to prevent loss by fire or burlary. Some items usually forgotten in a household inventory include: books, records, pillows, plants, towels, vacuum cleaner, brooms, toys and games, holiday decorations, office supplies, lawn and garden supplies, bikes and recreation equipment. 3 Daily Gazette Monday, March 17, 1986 I

Weinberger: con't from page 1 "At the end of a period of time reasonable to measure the effectiveness of our aggressive anti-smoking campaign in decreasing use of tobacco by the troops, I will review our progress and consider whether it would be appropriate, in addition, to make changes in the present policies of tobacco sales in commissaries and post exchanges," he wrote. Some highlights of the health promotion directive are: Smoking prevention and quitting programs shall aim to create an atmosphere that supports abstinence and discourages tobacco use, create a healthy work environment, and provide smokers with encouragement and professionalassistance in quitting. Smoking will be prohibited in auditoriums, conference and classrooms, buses, vans, elevators, and unless adequate space and ventilation to ensure a healthy environment is available for nonsmokers, in eating areas and common work areas. Participation of DoD components with manufacturers or distributors of alcohol or tobacco products will be disallowed in promotional programs, activities, or contests aimed primarily at DoD personnel. Commanders are to consider integrating physical fitness regimens into normal work routines for military personnel, and the chain of command is to support community activities promoting fitness among all DoD beneficiaries. Where feasible, in dining facilities, calorie information is to be made available and meals containing reduced amounts of fat, salt, and calories are to be readily available; snack concessions and vending machines are to offer nutritious alternatives such as fresh fruit, fruit juices, and whole grain products. Hypertension screening is to be provided as part of all medical examinations and the annual dental examination for active duty members; each DoD medical facility is to offer periodically mass hypertension screening to all beneficiaries, to encourage them to monitor blood pressure regularly. Education campaigns will be required on topics such as alcohol and drug use and pregnancy, driving while in intoxicated, adolescent alcohol and drug abuse, and misuse of alcohol and other drugs which emphasis on eliminating illegal uses. The directive approved by Secretary Weinberger creates a high-level DoD health promotion coordinating committee headed by Dr. William Mayer, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, to coordinate and increase health promotion activities throughout DoD.
