THURSDAY, AUGUST , 20, 1959 New Device Will Plot All Planes COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Science Service)— A new sysleni has been developed for keeping track of all airplanes, friendly or unfriendly, approaching or flying over the tJ. S. The new plotting system, called Iconorarna, will be -installed here at North American Air Defense Command (NOftAD) headquarters and at Strategic Air Command (SAC) headquarters at Omaha, Neb. Iconorama shows almost instantly the positions of aircraft thousands of miles away, such as those that might be detected by the Dis- stant Early warning defensive radar network. By projecting the automatically! drawn tracks on a big screen, it has been demonstrated that the system can do the work of six men at the old clear-plastic plot-i ling boards used since World War II. The Inconorama system expands i traffic information handling capac-i ity by 400 per cent. It is expected' to pay for itself in four years byi obviating human plotters. • i Traces made by the planes be-| ing tracked are scribed on a coated ! slide by a moving stylus. Data re-' ceived over existing telelype lines] are made to guide lite stylus over the slide, scribing a special metallic coating. The slide plot measures only one inch square, yet overall error of the projected display is said to be about one part in 1,000. As many slides as needed may be used to cover a given situation. Each is projected, in register, on the viewing screen and in its own identifying color. When the slides become tilled with tracks, or the situation is over, the slides are replaced. Each removed slide can be filed as part of the flight record of the plane it represents. ' ( Leasing contracts for the Icono- rama system, made by Fenske, Fedrick and Miller, Inc., Los Angeles, call for installation to 'be completed at NORAD by July, 1960, and at SAC by October, 1959 Iconorama units already have been installed and operated at the Pacific Missile Range, Point Mugu Calif.; the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico; the Atlantic Missile Range at Cape Canaveral, Fla., and the Naval Research Lab oratory, Washington, D. C. Lockheed Aircraft Corporation also is understood to have signed a con tract lor use of Iconorama at its Palo Alto, Calif, control center. Public Will Want Fewer Specialists ' SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Science Service) — The public will demand an about face from the medical profession soon, calling for more general practitioners and fewer specialists, a psychiatrist predicted here. People want their doctor to recognize and respond to the emotional needs of the patient, Dr. Daniel Blain, California Department of Mental Hygiene here, reports in GP (Aug.), journal of, the American Academy of Gen-j eral Practice. Yet today, the emphasis is upon more specialization, more and more carving of the patient into definite areas and a tendency to treat only one of these areas. Doctors tend to pay more attention to the patient's X-rays and microscopic evidence than to their reaction to the patient himself or to a general observation of the patient. Queries to 3,1500 national leaders representing virtually all the professions and leaders in America today resulted in rather consistent responses when these persons were asked briefly how they expected doctors to help meet the emotional needs of people. If their answers arc an indication of the national state of •mind, the nation is upset, disturbed, irritated, tense and insecure, Dr. Blain said. Here are the ten most popular suggestions that the 3,500 returned: 1. Doctors should have more general knowledge of psychologic medicine and a greater awareness of the prevalence of emotional problems. 2. The "assembly line" approach in many doctors' offices should be reduced. 3. Doctors should become friends and counselors and become good listeners, 4. More doctors should be in general practice. 5. Tliey should have a sympathetic understanding of the patient as a human being, 6. Doctors should have better training in the social sciences, 7. They should help guide teenagers and be able to recognize disturbances that lead to delin-i quency and crime. , j 8. Doctors should establish bet- i ler relationship with their patients i than can be accomplished in the] professional atmosphere of the examining room. 9. They should refer their clients to { family service agencies which could act helpfully. 10. Doctors should be aware of financial problems and the anxiety ciused by medical costs.
