"Women in business cannot af
ford to drink for economic reasons.
Their colleagues will not 'cover-UD'
for them as does "the family of the
drinking wife. Sooner or later the
career girl who drinks finds her
self Jobless. On the other hand,
the housewife can ease the hang
over by staying in bed with a bro
mide or another drink."
Cunningham noted that continu
ed social drinking can advance into
alcoholism or compulsive drinking
in which the victim seeks drink
after drink as a sedative for the
nerves. Whiskey leads on until a
very serious condition is reached.
Treatment is then necessary to re
lieve acute intoxication and accom

"Public understanding Is nec
essary to alleviate the problem,"
cautioned Cunningham. "The road
to prevention and rehabilitation
may be found through education."
