(>Tj— Did you know that you can cmo (tonally starve a child to death? "Without emotional satisfaction children die------it's as simple as that," says Dr. Rene A. Spitz, New York psychoanalyst. Here for a lecture tonight, he told a news conference yesterday that his 15 years 1 research in psychiatric diseases of children has proved that "emotional starvation is as dangeroiis as physEcal starvation; it's slower, but just as effective." Recounting his European studies of 91 infants over a period of two years, Dr. Spitz said that, once separated from their mothers and with no substitne for mothers, 37.3 per cent of these children died. HE also said that children separated from their mothers or foster mothers for as little as three months become more prone to accidents and sickness. "To put it simply," he continued, "man is a social animal. He must have emotional interchange with his fellow man, or perish." RITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark. Tuesday .
