PAGES T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 1966 uoctor Alvarez Dr. Walter C. Alvarez is emeritus consultant in medicine of the Mayo Clinic and emeritus professor_ of medicine of the Mayo Foundation. "Pfaenylketonuria i -A few years ago it was found -that in rare cases a child is ·born lacking a substance in his body which will enable him to handle a chemical called phenv- lalanine. As a result, a chemi- £al called phenylpyruvic acid is put out in the urine. , · In the old days when this de- feet was not quickly found in a newborn infant, the child was poisoned by the abnormal substance in his blood and soon became feeble-minded. W h e n the disease was discovered in newborn children and when the prooer diet was given, t h e Child's little brain developed ·properly and was not poisoned. Today in many hosoitals every newborn child is tested for thi disease. " Now I read that Dr. Barry and associates have found -- as ,was to be exoected -- . thai "special care must be taken tc test the brothers and sisters of a ketonuric child as soon as |hey are born. The disease is inherited and so it runs in families. ; _ Recently, two dozen or more tither defects in body chemistry "have been discovered which must be watched for at the bjrth of a child. .\What saddens me is that'so rtiany people who have a mentally retarded 5-year-old child vjrrite to ask me for the, diet for phenylketonuria. They dp not realize that if a child's brain is-to be saved with a diet it Inust be started a few days after the child is born. It must ife started before the child's brain is damaged; Halfway House i' I read that there are about 5 "halfway houses" already built for recovering mental patients. They : can take thousands of almost well patients out of dental hospitals and can help them to go to work and support themselves. '',, In the next half century, hundreds more of these halfway Houses should be built because in them the care of mentally disturbed patients can be much lessened. The patients are so very much helped in these houses because they are free to go out and get .a job. They can come back in at night and can receive help from trained men and women if they feel that they are slipping back into .confused thinking. Harold Russell, chairman of the President's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, tells me studies of ex- mental patients have shown that they usually work well and, if well treated by an employer, will stay on the job for years. ··:Three-fifths of the "mentally restored" workers who w e r e studied by the Veterans Administration '· were found to have been working for their current emoloyers five years or more. They had no higher accident rate than have men who have never been in a mental hospital. A man's fellow workers will accept the former mental patient if the boss will. -Employers who are interested should get the "Guide to Job Placement of the Mentally Restored" by D o r o t h y B. Thompson. It can be obtained without cost by writing to the President's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, Washington, D.C., 20210. Dr. Alvarez' booklet, "When . Mental Illness Strikes a Fam- -ily," has provided comfort to many. Send 25 cents and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Dr. Walter C.
