PAGE 4 Stress studied Sick? Is it all in your head? By LAURIE ITOW ClUzenSud Writer You won't get a cold by merely thinking about it, but more and more doctors believe that psychological factors lead to the development of all illnesses, i n c l u d i n g colds. Dr. Alan 1. Levinson, head of the psychiatry department of the University of Arizona's College of Medicine, said that doctors have begun to study emotional stress in the cause and treatment of diseases. "A cold isn't considered a classical psychosomatic disease, but many people under stress have a higher tendency to catch colds and have a higher rate of blood flow in the body which aids the invasion of bacteria. "Also when a person is under stress, chances are that they are not sleeping or eating well and their resistance is low. An indirect chain of events, initially created by emotional stress, now is believed by many physicians as a factor in all illnesses," he said. Other diseases, not traditionally thought to be psychosomatic such as arthritis and kidney and gall bladder diseases, now are said to have u n d e r l y i n g p s y c h o l o g i c a l causes. Studies show that arthritic patients feel more pain when under stress. Levinson said that although a clear-cut connection has not been made, an increase in the production of adrenal and endocrine fluids, which cause in- f l a m m a t i o n , occurs when people are under stress and is probably the cause of greater pain. Muscle tension from emotional stress also causes organs such as the gall bladder not to function efficiently and may lead to disorders such as gall stones, he said. Doctors in the past have associated certain psychosomatic dseases with personality types, he said. "Aggressive people were candidates for cardiac disease, the business executive who was forced lo remain aloof and independent in his job was the ulcer victim and a person who experienced the loss of a loved one was the victim of colitus, a severe diarrhea condition.' But the type of illnesses developing from emotional stress now is believed to be Dr. Alan Levinson Outlines methods very individualized, i n f l u - enced by physical characteristics and developed behavior, he said. A person will most likely develop a disease which was considered a legitimate illness as a child and which drew sympathetic response from the family, he said. In treating psychosomatic diseases, Levinson said doctors treat the symptoms or pain first and then seek the cause of underlying stress. "We're living in a world filled with more and more stress and pressures. We can't eliminate stress from one's life, but we can help people to accept or change stressful situations rather than try to ignore them," he said. Levinson, who treats patients suffering from psychosomatic diseases at the UA clinic, said group and individual psychotherapy is administered. "But psychotherapy won't end all the problems. The asthma patient will still have asthma and the ulcer patient will still have the ulcer. "Once the physiological processes of the disease are set in motion, you can't make them disappear. Bui the patient's tolerance to stress, which triggers the asthma attack or aggravates the ulcer, may be greater," he said. i Who's setting a new Quality standard for Mexican Foods?

SATURDAY FEB. 14, 1976 Phillips Survey January lead boon or bane? By KEVIN P. PHILLIPS Can political events later in the year be forecast from January results in the manner that stock analysts and retail merchants predict economic trends? Common sense says thai presidential candidates who lead in January party preference polls are heavy favorites to win their party nomination. For the Republicans, that would mean Gerald R. Ford. January Gallup results among GOP voters put him ahead of former California Gov. Ronald Reagan by 53 per cent to 42 per cent. Louis Harris polls give (he President a 46 to 44 per cent lead. And NBC News has him ahead of Reagan by 50 pet cent to 38 per cent. On the Democratic side, is it Kennedy or Humphrey? Noncandidate Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., leads whenever his name is listed for voter choice. In Gallup's January survey, 32 per cent of the Democrats sampled preferred Kennedy. Only when Kennedy is eliminated does Sen. Hubert Humphrey, D-Minn., emerge as the first choice among Democrats in every major national poll. Is rule valid? But let us assume that the January party preference leaders are President Ford among Republicans and Sen. Humphrey for the Democrats. Is the rule of thumb valid? Does January's poll leader wind up as the party nominee in the summer? From 1936, the first year of Gallup polling, through 1960, the January rule was a pretty good one. All in all, it worked six times as often as it failed. The Democrats nominated their January frontrunner in each o( those election years save 1952. As for the GOP they chose their January poll leader in each contest except t h a t of 1940. These exceptions really only prove the rule: Wendell Willkie took the 1940 Republican convention by storm, pushing aside the January poll leader, Thomas E. Dewey. And the Democrats looked eisewhere in 1952, nominating Illinois Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson instead of Harry S Truman or Sen. Estes Kefauver, D-Tenn., the men who led in wintertime surveys. Both Willkie and Stevenson overwhelmingly lost in the ensuing elections. Since 1960, the pattern has crumbled. The GOP nominated its January poll favorite, Richard M. Nixon, in 1968 and 1972, but not in 1964. That year's Republican nominee, Barry Goldwater, had trailed far behind front-runner Nixon in January surveys of GOP presidential preference. The Democrats chose January's leader in 1964 -- incumbent President Lyndon B. Johnson -- but they spurned the early favorites of 1968 and 1972. In the first months of 1968, party rank-and-file voters picked Lyndon B. Johnson and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. But Johnson later withdrew, RFK was assassinated and the eventual nominee was Humphrey. In 1972, Maine's Sen. Edmund S. Muskie was the January favorite of Democratic voters. But the convention ultimately nominated Sen. George S. McGovem of South Dakota. 50-50 chance Using this 1964-74 data, the odds are only three out of six that January's poll leaders actually will receive their party nominations. Early opinion surveys have become something less than probable as guides to the ultimate party nominee. Two explanations seem appropriate. The first is the rise of what can be called the "precarious presidency." Our last two elected incumbents, in one way or another, have been driven from office. The second is the surge in the number of presidential primaries (12 in 1968, 24 in 1972 and 30 today). Both phenomena have made it difficult for early front-runners to maintain their lofty perch. Especially when a party is out of power and has a multitude of would-be nominees, the man who leads in January polls is likely to be the prime target of his competitors in February and March. Humphrey is trying to avoid that trap by staying out of the primaries, but many experts wonder whether this alternative course can succeed. Useful aspect? However, there is one aspect of the January rule that may remain useful. Whenever either party has nominated a man who was not its January poll leader, that nominee has lost -Willkie and Goldwater for the GOP, Stevenson, Humphrey and McGovern for the Democrats. Thus, while being i January front-runner in party preference polls is no guarantee of success, not running out front in January seems to be a prophecy of failure. Men who do not already command a broad-based party constituency as America enters the election year so far never have been able to put a winning coalition together in the additional 10 months before Americans enter the voting booths. Returning to the major theme, it is possible that 1976 events will re-establish stability in the American political system and presidential selection process. But it also is quite possible that two additional January front-runners will fail to get nominations and that yesterday's rule of thumb will become even less valid. For the moment, caution is in order. January hasn't told us anything reliable. Copyright I97(i Spouse's bones found in dump SANTA ANA, Calif.
