Richard Evans, board president, said the new limited fee is ^$37.50 : annually. It offers nearly all ihe^ privileges of the regular family membership, such as recreational swimming at no - . charge: The exception is swimming instruction classes for children.

This may indicate that the mind plays an even greater part in disease than western doctors now believe. This was one of the theories offered by Dr. Stephen Black after an investigation of witch doctors in Nigeria. He went there; to continue the psychophy- sfcolbgical research for which he has.a grant from the Nuffield Foundation. Dr. Black found some of the witch .doctors, or "babalawos" preyed ;pn ignorance in the Yoruba tribal country where he conducted his studies. They exacted -high fees for cruel and useless rites arid chained some insolvent patients till they were ransomed by relatives. Witch doctors have been using for'centuries drugs only recently 'discovered by western medicine. But Dr. Black said that in some of' the cases he studied there appeared to be no physiological or pharmacological reason why the patient should have got better at all. In these cases, he said, the diagnosis might have been wrong or the history given by the patient inaccurate. "Alternatively," he said, "it had to be concluded that the successful work of the witch pie of the mysterious influence of; mind on body which has come to be one of the more challenging problems facing medical science today.", Dr. Black; who was assisted on his expedition by the British Broadcasting C o r p o r a t i o n (BBC), said he examined one woman who reported that ten years earlier she had suffered frpm what a hospital diagnosed as cancer of the skin. She said she had been unsuccessfully treated by X- Rays, so a year later she went to a witch doctor who gave her an ointment that cleared it up hi a week. Dr. Black said he had the ointment analyzed and it was found to contain nothing therapeutic although it was mildly radioactive. Dr. Black said there was always the chance of a wrong diagnosis or that the infection was healing before the witch doctor took over. But if this wa not the case it raised th question of whether "even i the still obscure territory of malignant disease the influence of mind on body may also produce results to benefit the patient." dren's swimming instruction at no charge. Under the $37.50 membership, any family wishing to add swimming lessons may do so at $10 per child for the season. "It was necessary to make this change as many of our family groups have youngsters w h o have completed their swimming instruction, yet still want to enjoy the summer recreational swimming and other activities offered by the Lighthouse Y," he said. Evans announced that any family wishing to. become acquainted with the Lighthouse facilities may swim 'as guests next Saturday and Sunday.' Also available this year are adult memberships at $25, and teen-age and swim team memberships at $20. The Lighthouse Y, located a E. 5th St. and N. Dodge Blvd., launched its annual May membership campaign last weekend. Members of the Hi-Y and Tri- Hi-Y Clubs' (the YMCA's high school groups) distributed inform a t i o n folders about the change in fees. The summer program emphasizes day cai ·*·"· boys and girls ages 6 to 12, and-swimming for all ages. The day camp will offer four 2-week sessions beginning June 19. Fees are $22 per session for children of members, and $33 per session for those of nonmembers, f-vimming instruction begins on that date also. Y ound ies at the Lighthouse Y include classes in horseback riding and bridge, family outings, and picnics on the five-acre grounds. The Lighthouse Y, located r.t conduct a kindergarten for 5-year-old boys and girls. Reg- oul Hubcaps Returned With Thief's Thanks CASPER, Wyo. (UPI) Duane Whited of Casper, who last fall reported three hubcaps stolen from his car, got them back this week. Whited said he found the hubcaps on his lawn along with a note that said: "Thanks for the use of your hubcaps. I traded cars and they won't fit the new one. I thought you might like them back." It was signed: "Midnight auto supply." For As Little As J10 Monthly .L.

The suspicion arises that we are nearmg a moral breakdown in the so-called civilized world. Many other, or all civilizations, have followed the same route and the speed of decline seems to be in proportion to the affluence. Since we are reported to be the most affluent of all, then our decline could be the most rapid of\all. The lesson to be seen is that Homosapiens do not 'advance in affluence. If this interpretation is wrong, then surely we can show the world how to do it. · '': All parties agree that private, County, or State Governments must follow a balanced budget. But, in our Federal budget, many and varied are the gimmicks and excuses to explain why it does not have .to be in balance. The suspicion arises that we are fooling ourselves and that all budgets must be In balance! The familiar sign of breakdown in reliance upon ourselves is seen in our frantic search of a Caesar to save us, such as a Kennedy or a Romney. Perhaps modesty, hard work, and. old-fashioned habits of thrift, and economy, will work now as ever. A recent report by a high ranking college president says that the modern youth lacks a goal. If he does lack a goal, then he is indifferent to the dangers that threaten. If that is not. decay then what is? - _ Sidney C. Kaiu istrations for the fall semester are being accepted now.
