As a.result, NBC found itself on Thursday afternoon with no 'program for Sunday at 8:30. Officials then decided to schedule a year-end news review which had been under preparation by the news and'special events department for broadcast at another time. It had to be cut from an hour,to a half-hour, but it got on the air— and turned out to be a good show.

Ignorance Is the ruling quality of their thought, lor had they experience of the proprietary mother who seeks to weld a son or daughter ,to herself by devious means, short ofj open, defiance of the third party,] they would at once recognize t'ne searching accuracy of your insight. Indubitably "mom" is the greatest wrecker of love, in courtship or marriage, in modern times. In niy case, "mom," who happens to be my : mother-in-law, wife flier daughter) away from her side, into a home of our own. At this point "mom" .precipitated the Husband Shares. Sense Of Strain .Because of her disappointment in relation to a husband who was an unstable, breadwinner, she has a complex regarding security and has put- a great strain on :ny marriage to a man who makes a moderate— or as she says "only average"— salary. She lives* with us,, which poses a problem, but Jeff and. I are facing it -with mutual sympathy and feel we are keeping it under control. 'Our first baby 'will be born' soon, and infant-care will spark new friction, probably; but, "Jeff and I are confident we can take it 'in stride. I am grateful to mother for her love and loyalty through the years, and I make 'every effort to understand her ways - of thinking and to refrain from hurting her feelings—but I hope never to be such a trial to my child,, or children, in later years. It is my prayer that as I grow older I may 'remember my current feelings, and have the wisdow and strength to surrender our children to lives of their own, meanwhile stocking my social larder, with other Interests to forestall any leaning on them. My purpose in writing this is to give one reader's answer to those who condemn you 'without warrant. Sincerely, J. B. I'f-Jer Handiwork i Is Very Thorough: __ \ Naturally that ended my chance extricating my wife from."mom's" " ; and as might -be expected, it ended our marriage, too. We've' separated/and divorce is only a matter of time. The tragic thoroughness -of. mom's handiwork is shown in the complete assurance of son or daughter, as the case may be, that he or she is doing a great noble serviee in' "repaying" the parent for life and nurture obviously bestowed. ... Please keep up your good .work and tell the' world the Jittle-teKwn | truth about "mom," until social! welfare and other agencies, recog'-' nize this blight on modern marriage and launch a counter-attack of education to overcome it.

A neurologist may tell you,that your nerves or "wires" are ail O.K., and that nothing 'is organically wrong, but you can still be as dangerously upset as Frazer in tomorrow's Case Record. Furthermore, our medical courses in psychiatry are chiefly concerned the But how many insane patients does the average young doctor encounter per year? Very few!

He didn't say partly mental, but purely so. It is obvious that our thoughts and fears have a great deal to do with all of our diseases, 'but this famous clinician lumped SO pel-cent of his patients as purely victims of imaginary ailments.
