NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

WASHINGTON--The government's top drug abuse officials told President Nixon Monday that the number of narcotics violation arrests has doubled in the past four years. Nixon told them he wanted the number doubled again next year.

"We were on the 10 yard line," he told. "Now we're up to the 50 yard line. But we have the ball now. They had it before. Let's go."
