of the Intertribal Alcoholism
Program in Miami, Oklahoma,
and Vemetta Reams, director
of Wise Council House in
Kansas City, Missouri.
NSAS is the first alcohol

ease recovering alcoholics from
treatment centers into work
and community life.

section. Fox founded Houses
of Hope in Lincoln, the first
halfway houses in Nebraska.
He is also a regional chairman
for the Association of Halfway
House Alcoholism Programs of
America and has been active in
alcoholism programs in Lincoln
and throughout the state.
"All staff, members for this
section presently direct
halfway houses, so they are
well qualified to offer sound
information and special
insights into the problems
involved in operating halfway
houses." Mrs. Wheeler said.
Harvey Swager, the fourth
staff member, is director of the
9bed NU Way House, Inc., of
Minneapolis and will assist with
a program on administration.
The section will also cover
accreditation, funding,
professionalism, use of
community resources, internal
programs and special programs
such as halfway houses for

interested in alcoholism," Mrs.
Wheeler said. "But" the
majority of the students are
usually professionals in the
alcoholism field, counselors,
ministers, teachers, nurses and
relatives of alcoholics."

in a lightly stylized manner,"
Floyd said. "I have especially
tried to emphasize those
aspects of the play that will
appeal to a present-day
The play is about a middle
