Editorial . . A 'Pill 1 To Spur Understanding? A SCIENTIST had an encouraging message for mankind as the " sorry old year ended and the hopeful new one began. It was not exactly couched in scientific language but was a vivid capsule summary of what has been learned about human beings through recent inquiries into the actual physical functioning of the brain and nervous system—how it receives, processes, stores and utilizes sensory information from the outside. "There may be much less son-of-n-bitchery in the world man we supposed," University- of California neurophysiologist Dr. Robert B. Livingston told fellow scientists at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Dallas. That is, the disputations, petty or grave, that strain our daily relations with our fellow men are not due so much to malice aforethought on anyone's .part but simply to the fact that everyone's brain structui-e is different from everyone else's. Each brain perceives the world differently from every other brain, and the difference can be slight or it can be radical. It is in the childhood years, said Livingston, when the •.brain is doubling again by the age of four, that "people become embedded in language and culture, so that much of what we con* sider 'common sense' in any cultui'e is actually what we experience before age 12." Everything coming into the mind'is modified'by our experiences, expectations and purposes, with much data cither shielded out or distorted so that it may never retfeh any two people in just the same form. s 1 Observers of human behavior have always been aware, of course, that each man views the world through his personal set of glasses. Psychologists have long remarked the fact that two people can witness the same event and yet report entirely different versions of it, with neither one lying or deliberately distorting what he saw. The glasses can be both acquired and inherited. For example;, a standard test is with the chemical substance PTC (phenylthio- carbamide). Some people taste it as bitter, others at sweet or salty. Some people can't taste it at all. It's Your Baby © 1969 by NEA, lnc. V 'While I think we're ALL for better leacher-student relationships, quite frankly, Mr. Redifer ..." This does not mean that people of different cultural and genetic backgrounds can never hope to understand one another, though it becomes increasingly difficult to change or learn after the childhood years when the brain is "set." , Livingston is hopeful that if we can learn to,understand, these neurological mechanisms better, we could be able to s6e the. world with, less emotion, be more tolerant of the next man's perception of the world and be more capable of "tenta'tivpness of response"—that is, less likely to go off half-cocked. ' He predicts that researchers, as they find out "where things are" in the.nervous svstem, will d^\i«jp new drugs and new treatments for mental illness and depression. It w.ould be wonderful if science could also come up with j claim as a dependent someone some kind of "understanding" pill to unfreeze our nervous systems j npt | iv ] n „ with you you mll <, t and help us attain that which philosophers have bewailed the • ' scarcity of for centuries. The world could use a few million tons of the stuff right now.

Philpott, District Director of Internal for Central and Southern. Illinois. Failure to keep these records caused! some taxpayers to lose •a dependency exemption they 'otherwise would have been entitled to List year. For others it meant the problem of assembling the needed records months after the expense was paid. Philpott said that there are five tests that have to be, met to satisfy the legal requirements for claiming another person as a dependent. The one that gives taxpayers the most trouble is the support test, he added. Substantiation of support is the most common problem ai'ising on returns filed each year. To satisfy the support test, the taxpayer must show what it cost to upport the dependent for year and how much of this he provided. To gather such re- crods for a child who does not live at home or a parent u: another city is naturally more, difficult that it is for a dependent who lives with the. taxpayer. Philpott said .the four other dependency tests' are. the.' gross income test, member of < household or relationship test, citizenship test and joint return test. All are explained in th« Form 1040 instructions. More detailed information can be Obtained by sending e post card to Publications, P. O. Box 1468, Springfield, ' Illinois 62705 re- que'sticn Publication 501, "Your Exemptions and Exemptions for Dependents." Springfield, 111., — Federal individual income tax forms with instructions have now been mailed, to all taxpayers who filed last year, according to Jay G. Philpott, District Director of Internal Revenue for Central and Southern Illinois. There is one very important change in filing instructions for Illinois taxpayers according to Philpott. Beginning this year all residents should file their 1968 Federal tax returns directly with the Internal Revenue S e rvice Center in Kansas City, Missouri 64170. Although instructions accompanying the tax forms indicate only refund returns are to me mailed to the. Kansas City Service Center and all others to the District Director, these instructions are no longer applicable due to a last , minute, change, Philpott said. Taxpayers receiving the Form 1040 tax package will find an envelope addressed to the Service Center which can be used for mailing the. tax return. Tax- pay ere receiving the preaddressed card Form 1040A will also receive an envelope, however they will need to insert "Kansas City, Missouri 64170" on the dotted address line-of'the envelope. Philpott also called attention to the two- part address label on the Form 1040 and the preaddressed card From 1040A. He urged taxpayers to use the preaddressed form if it fits their needs. Taxpayers who have their returns prepared by someone else should remember to take the form to the preparer so he can' use the preaddressed label and/or return. Law For Today... COMMON LAW HTISDAND LIABLE FOR SUPPORT Q. Does a man have to support his common law wife and their csildren if he leaves her? We lived together 15 years and how he says he owes me nothing. A. The, first question to be settled is the validity of the marriage. Although common law marriage has been prohibited in Illinois linoe 1905, this . state recognizes any common law mairiape entered into in a state where it was valid. If the, niai- riage is valid, i he husban.d Can be sued for separate mainte : nance or divorce and be reauire4 by a court to provide support for his wife and children. Even if the marriage is not valid, a man is liable for the support of children if he legally acknowledges that he is" their father or if he' Is adjudged to be the father jn "a paternity action.

Madison County Case Local Appellate Court Upholds Circuit Ruling . The Appellate Court in Mt. Vernon recently upheld an appeal from the Madison County! Circuit Court . concerning ' the cause of death of an Illinois Highway Department employee. .The case, Velma Harnel, Administrator of the Estate Frank Hamel, vs. Jesse G. Delicate, was affirmed by Justices Edward C. Eberspacher end Joseph H. Goldenhersh. Hamel was struck by a car driven by Jesse Delicate on March 2, 1964. He was taken to a hospital in Wood River and then removed to Barnes Hospital in St. Louis where he died on March 5, 1964. After the plaintiff presented her ease, the defendant did. "not offer any evidence and mover! for a directed verdict. The motion was denied and the jury returned a verdict finding the issues in favor of the plaintiff and fixed the plaintiff's damages at $17,000. The defendant made motions for a judgment in his favor and a new trial. The post trial motions were denied and the j defendant appealed, claiming that the evidence was insufficient to show a casual connection between the injury and the ensuing death.
