THE OLD JUDGE SAYS...
iff ft & MJlf m
HENRY:" I've heard that same thing several
times lately . . . that alcoholics are really
sick people. It was news to me. Do you
agree with that statement, Judge?"
OLD JUDGE: " Yes, it's true, Henry. It's no
notion of mine . . . it's a statement made
by scientists who have studied the subject."
HENR Y: " What did they find out, Judge ? "
OLD JUDGE: "Well, as a result of their
medical research, they found out that ap
proximately 95 of the people who drink,
drink sensibly. 5 do so unwisely, at times.
Included in that 5 is the small percentage
known as alcoholics."
HENRY: "But why are they called 6ick
OLD JUDGE: "Because it has been dis
covered that, in many cases, excessive drink
ing is a symptom of some physical or emo
tional maladjustment ...not the cause of it.
HENRY: "Now I understand it, Judge. I
am glad to hear of the modern approach
to this problem and that so much is really
being done to help these folks."
