22 SANDUSKY RtftlSTtft Wiring Of Brain Is Amazing By DELOS SMITH NEW YORK (UPI)~"Pfobably i( is impossible to enslave the Human race by establishing elec tfronic controls over the human tirain. But mark well that word, "probably." The scientist who tfsed it and who has investigated the possibilities of changing pco- $s into robots is not positive it it impossible because he doesn't khow the limitations. •This scientist, Dr. .lose M. R Delgado of Yale University, be-| lleves science should find out just | What the limitations arc in the j riope that the human "personality and our basic ideas arc beyond electronic control." Delgado's own experiments in electronically directing the brains of a few persons and of animals have produced remarkable results. The direction is achieved by electrically stimulating various areas of the brain. Cats and monkeys are forced by this stimulation to perform complicated body J movements. Human beings havej been forced to feel fear, to be, more friendly than they were, and to experience confusion as to their sex. Wire Brain In Detail Delgado and his Yale associates Can "wire" a brain for this stimulation in amazing detail. They use Wires as fine as hairs and introduce them into the head in bundles through a hole drilled in the skull. The wires are insulated Save for their tips and terminate to a socket fixed in the hole. The tips are implanted in various brain areas. The scientists have succeeded in making as many as 42 implants in one brain. ' By plugging into the socket, they can deliver electrical currents to as many brain areas as they wish, in whatever "patterns" they devise. These techniques have been evolving for 10 years and longer but culminated this year With the invention of a "wireless lstimolator." You see. creatures with long lead wires plugged into their heads can't move about too freely, and besides they're likely to be inhibited by them. .The "wireless stimulator" is so small it can be worn on a collar. U has a timing mechanism which can store a program of continuing activity for the creature whose bj-ain is tuned to it and then carry out the program by delivering the requisite stimulations to the brain. • This wireless stimulator dsn " control the animal's brain for days. In describing these experiments to the New York Academy of Sciences, Delgado said they would "seem to support the distasteful Conclusion that motion, emotion, aind behavior can be directed by electric forces and that animals and humans can be controlled like robots by push buttons." But He added an important qualification. It was this: Physical and psychological "patterns" exist in any brain. Electrical stimulations can "activate, inhibit, or disturb" Mormes Land With Symphony RICHMOND. VA. (UFt)-i*. trotw of Richmond's Symphony Orchestra enjoyed a rare treat recently **• a performance of Tchaikovsky's ''1812 Overture" 89 the great Russian composer meant for it to be performed—including real cannon. When the musicians filed into the open-air arena for the concert they were trailed by members of Richmond's 1st lO&mm Howitzer Battalion of the Marine Corps Reserve, lugging three howitttrs behind them. the Leathernecks had been asked to turn musicians for the flight to punctuate the pttortfi* ance with a couple of tfanrron bursts, the symphony deseriltes Napoleon's retreat from Moscow and calls for cannon fire neaf the end. The Marines won wide acclaim. One critic called their contribution "the high point for everybody, awaited with 1 much anticipation and it was no disappointment." He also commented (hat it was the "loudest musical score ever head in Richmond." THE WEAKER SEX—Englishwomen Mrs. Margaret Darvall, left, and Mrs. Dorothea Gravin stand by supplies at a southern Nepal airport before a flight to Katmandu. They are the advance team for a 12 woman "International All-Ladies Expedition." The group will try to climb the world's sixth highest peak—26,867-foot-high Cho-Ovu.

But they cannot create new patterns to replace the old. In o th e r words, Delgado continued, "brain stimulation can elicit an emotional state, but it cannot change the basic characteristics of the experimental subject." Delgado qualified this qualification throughout with that word, "probably." His human subjects jwere hopeless victims of mental and nervous disorders and the work on them was designed to help them. These "therapeutical possibilities have barely been investigated," he said. Donald Nelson Said Improved LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Donald M. Nelson. 70-year-old former World War 2 war production board chairman, continued to show improvement today from a stroke. Nelson, hospitalized at Good Samaritan August 23, was in a coma and extremely critical condition for several days following the stroke. There are more than 90,000 miles of roads in Japan, but only about 5,700 miles are paved. j,""' V -;V- 'V-"'-' J'V .1*. "'j r v J SAVINGS ACCOUNT Money, Means Banking It!
