6-IDAHO SUNDAY JOURNAL Sunday, November 16, 1958 District Social Worker Plan Draws Attention of Other States The unique combination of duties of Garth Harrison, psychiatric social worker on the staff of the Southeast District Health Department, has come in for a t t e n t i o n from other states. Harrison, speaking b e f o r e the Association, said Wisconsin has been eyeing "this setup of a psychiatric social worker employed by a public health unit and has now begun to recruit similar personnel." Dr. Terrell 0. Carver, slate health administrator, has asked Harrison to come to Boise lat:r this month lo explain his duties for the benefit of other district health directors. Harrison, besides carrying a case load of individuals, which include emotionally disturbed children, conducts workshops each month for teachers and public h e a l t h nurses here and in Ihe surrounding counties served by the health department. "Teachers and visiting nurses come closest to being able lo determine when a family s i t u a t i o n or outside influences are hariivng a child so that he develops behavior problems," Harrison said, "and w i t h counseling they can sometimes nip problems in (he bud." He refers severe behavior cases lo Dr. S. Wayne Smith, superintendent of Slate Hospital South, Blackfool. Must Share Knowledge Harrison said Ihere will never be enough psychiatric personnel available in the country in the ed children. "It may surprise some lo know that half of Ihe so-called mentally retarded children do no) hiivo 01- ganic injury, but suffer from some early emotional injury which slows their learning process," the speaker said. Encourages Plan John B u r k h a r l , mental healih association chairman, encouraged Harrison in plan (o sec forseeable f u t u r e so "we must all share our knowledge." He praised Ihe "maturity and wisdom" of a number of teachers and nurses he has met as well as those "resource persons" with special training or lalents in "every field concerned with health and welfare." Harrison, who was employed by the health department here in August, also works with visiting stale clinic teams for crippled children!, cleft palate and mentally relard- whether judges and law enforce- m e n t officers would like 'sonic? workshops. "I would not suggest leniency with y o u t h f u l law violators, hut constructive firmness, based cm a l a w m a n ' s understanding o f t h e f u n d a m e n t a l problems of youths who get into trouble," Harrison -said. Ricks College of Rcxburg. which will soon move to Idaho Falls, h-is agreed lo give academic credit . to teachers in Harrison's monthly workshops. This came afier a review of his q u a l i f i c a t i o n s and his presentation of material on the phases of child personality development. Ivan Frailer, acting head nf the health department, who is a l s o microbiologisl for the regional public health laboratory, said of Harrison: "Garth was very new to nur slaEE and we were new to him -- I never recall anyone so new who has fit in so smoothly," Job Created in '55 Harrison's job was created early this year when county commissioners Emmotle II. Spraker, C a n t r i l Nielsen aiul James Abbolt cooperated biulgclwisc with Sheriff H. E. Parker, Probate Judge W. H. Jensen and the h e a l t h department.

Seven of the 26 received the highest priority, anil only the three were selected due to limited f u n d s for next year. P a r t i c i p a t i n g are J. D. Morgan, placing 75 acres in reserve; John Christiansen, reserving HO acres, and Rulon Bright, who lives at Bountiful, U t a h , a n d f a r m s a t Downey, who applied to withhold 42-1 acres. The conservation reserve of the soil bank is a voluntary program, under which f a r m e r s sign contracts to withdraw cropland from production for live years and devote that land to grass, trees, or to water and wildlife conservation practices. A n n u a l rental payments are made by the federal government for the land reserved, and the government agrees (o provide assistance in establishing conser- v a t i o n practices. The conservation reserve differs from the acreage reserve, withdrawn last year by the government. Land withheld is required to be seeded to grass or to wildlife cover, but may not be used for pasture or crops. Nationwide, more than 232,000 farmers have filed applications for soil bank participation. Maximum allowable to any one farm is $5,000, with the exact amount determined individually (or e a c h tract, depending on land value.
