Disruptive children? psychiatrist says no CHICAGO (AP) — When Bobby throws spitballs in the classroom, he's being disruptive. Bui he isn't just a naturally disruptive child, says a psychiatric consultant. In fact, there's no such thing as a child who is naturally disr ruptive, says Dr. Fritz Redl of North Adams, Mass., a psychoanalyst and educator. Obsolete assumptions about disruptive behavior need to be debunked, the former distinguished professor of behavioral sciences at Wayne State University in Detroit said in an interview Thursday. Redl, a consultant to the school of education at Massachusetts State College, said it is wrong to assume "that disruption is always a bad thing, and that what is being disrupted is always good." It also is erroneous in his view to assume that removing the disrupting child is going to improve the classroom. And Redl said it cannot be assumed that good' teaching or strict discipline can solve the problem. He listed these common causes of disruptions: —Boredom resulting from dull subjects, bad teaching and crowded classrooms. —Frustration of eager and learning-oriented children who are unable to get quick answers to their questions. —HeaHhy reactions to unfair treatment by adults. —A feeling of hopelessness when the child is unable to perform a task he thought he could master. —Spillover from excitement or frustration related to a preceding class or events, such as gym or a long exam. Redl said that disruptive behavior is perfectly normal. He said that parents and teachers must try to control it, but they will have to learn to live with it. Expelling or temporarily excluding the child will not solve the problem, Redl said. Nor is "totally idiotic" corporal punishment a solution, he said. The solution? Small classes in which kids can get individual attention and, ideally, a "crisis teacher" available for youngsters who become anxious or wild. LITTLE ROCK (Af>) -Fewer Arkansaris voted Tuesday than, in any general election since 1962. The turnout was, however, slightly greater than the nationwide turnout.In Arkansas, 39 per cent or about 530,072 of the 1.37 million eligible voters went to the polls compared with about 38 per cent of the eligible persons who voted nationwide. The national voter turnout was the lowest since 1946, when 37.1 per cent of the voting age population voted, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures. The lowest on record is 32.5 per cent for 1942, when millions were away from home during World War II. ( • Slate Auditor Jimmie "Red" Jones had predicted that about 640,000 Arkansans would vote this year. He was off about 100,000. More than 587,000 persons voted in the Democratic primary on May 28, when hotly contested senatorial and gubernatorial races led the ballot. Tuesday's state turnout was almost 100,000 less than 1972, when 648,069 persons voted in the general election. In the close 2nd Congressional District race between incumbent John Paul Hammerschmidt, a Republican, and Democrat Bill Clinton of Fayetteville, about 169,069 persons voted. There were 187,557 votes cast in that district in 1972, a presidential election year. In the 2nd District race, which pitted Republican Judy Petty of Little Rock against Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., about 132,560 persons voted compared with about 175,000 voters in 1972. Dale Enoch of Conway, executive director of the Institute of politics in Arkansas, said the poor turnout was discouraging news for the state GOP. Since more people voted in the Democratic primary than in the general election, he said, this indicated that people were not looking at the GOP "as a viable alternative any more. "This was the first general election since 1962 that has not had either Winthrop Rockefeller or a presidential contest on the ballot," he added. "When you eliminate those two factors, the general election figure apparently goes down." Druggist convicted LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The former chief pharmacist for the Lillle Rock region of the Veterans Administration hospitals was convicted Thursday on drug charges. John Moseley was charged with delivery of 150 amphetamine capsules to a police undercover agent last year. Judge Richard AdMsson set Moseley's appeal bond at $40,000 after Moseley was sentenced to eight years in prison and fined $5,000. Moseley had been convicted in Pulaski County Circuit Court on the same charge in 1973, but the state Supreme Court overturned the decision and ordered a new trial.

Jailer held on rape charge LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. (AP) — A 13-year-old Dermott girl, who was being .held at Chicot County Jail on a juvenile court matter, has alleged that she was raped Oct. 27 by the jailer, Ira Henry. Her parents later signed an affidavit asking that the charge of first-degree rape filed against Henry Nov. 1 be dropped. Thursday, the parents and the alleged victim returned to authorities and made a third sworn statement reaffirming the girl's first allegations and her willingness to testify in court. Sheriff Max'Browri said Henry was jailed Thursday, pending the setting of bond on the first-degree rape charge. —Be a courteous driver. o fi mputersfo Navy and pop toasters former P Mrs. Kenneth Johnson, Ellisville, Missouri.
