A third portable is being . taken from Tomnkins to Lowell, but it has been used for storage. EMPHASIZES HAZARDS Friday's emergency decision to close Lowell's handsome, two-tone ; brick-faced building has set off a cnain reaction that puts emphasis on earthquake hazards existing in 'many of the city's 110 elementary, junior and senior high schools. Counting Lowell, 18 . schools have been, partially or com Dletelv closed after condemna tion as "very poor" earthquake risks since 1953. fourteen others are classed as "poor" risks, but are still in use and all or part of 26 others are lised as "fair." MAJORITY ARE GOOD "Even though the picture may look black, we should remember that approximately two-thirds of Oakland's school buildings are classed as 'good, " Berg said. He added that all structures put up since 1934, when state school building laws were tightened in the wake of the disastrous Long Beach earthquake, are in good shape. One indirect result of Friday's aVtion' is that a barricade has been thrown around a roam building of Prescott School, 898 V Continued Page 16, Col. 6 Bears Lose, 47-0 As Stanford Wins California's Golden Bears yes terday bowed to the powerful UCLA Bruins, 47-0, at Los Angeles.

I 1 TOO BOSSY Ma B limed For Child's Split Mind By JACK RYAN Tribune Staff Writer Mothers ought to spend more time in the kitchen and stop their husbands dishwashing and diaper-changing chore, a Denver psychiatrist suggests. The lessening of the maternal role of mothers in American families may be partly re sponsible for the increase of one of the worst mental diseases schizophrenia. , Dr. James A. V. Galvin be- ieves that maybe' mothers were better off in 1900 when hey baked their own bread and had the satisfaction of creating and being needed. The doctor made these com ments yesterday ference prior to at a press coni delivering his paper on "The Mothers of Schiz,- ophrenics" to the! American Psy chiatric Association convention in San FranciscoJ SPLIT PERSONALITY The new approach to this dis ease known to laymen by the broad term "split personality" is that schizophrenia develops from a family experience, but it can be corrected. "Something goes on between the mother and i child that trig gers this disease," the psychia- trist declared. The mothers, he explained, don't get ade-f are tnose who quate gratification out of being women and their number is in creasing. They don t like being mothers and they resent men's advantages in ojur culture. j Often. he says, they suffer from the fantasy that their re sentments can be offset by hav: ing a baby this is the situation that produces the potential skitzo." j HOW IT DEVELOPS After, the child is born and ! . growing, says Dr. ; Galvin, these mothers continue to act as though the child is still a part of her. They force their children to confess to them their every whim and secret "sin." They inr sist upon immediate obedience and usually over-fuss and overj- medicate their offspring. j However, the psychiatrist de clared, the mother and the child will; never admit the degree of hese controls jto the physician. But these mothers' are the complete monarch of their children and usually present a charming, but lying facade. ' j Psychiatrists treating the re sults of this type of mother are often suckered in by these women, the doctor disclosed. But after considerable psycho therapy qn the child the mother is unmasked. . Dr. Galvini saic the child doesn't recognize the- damage th mother is doing until he be comes psychotic and then vio lently resents the mother. DELINQUENCY CAUSE j Another psychiatrist reported that the most striking factor noted in a study of delinquent girls is the presence of unstable or strife-ridden parental rela-tionshiDS. 1 j Dr. Stanley J. Geller of Beverly Hills said that 70 per cent of the gir:s studied were from broken home$. In all these cases, he said, thej girl involved remained with jher mother. . . ; And in most cases too, j he added, the girl's delinquent ac tions were an attempt to strike back or punish her mother. j Dr. Gellerj noted that "with unfailing constancy m the mothers of delinquent daughters who re-marred, she married the same type of man. i It seemed like an unconscious attempt to "repeat thei destiny," he said. ' The husband in most of these cases, he said, made poor vocational and social adjustments and were incipient alcoholics, j During psychoanalysis, however, the doctor reported, the daughters always described their real f Ithers as victims of a dominating wife 1 no matter how shiftless the father was. ! Another Firm Ups Newsprint Prices VANCOUVER, B. C, Oct. 29 (W Western Canadr's biggest newsprint producer, the Powell River Company, today hiked its price of newsprint $4 a ton. The . price increase was the latest in a series of. newsprint price boosts to Canadian and United States publishers. OPEN MONDAY Ike Supports Secy. Benson) Farm Policy ! Flexible Prices to Stay; New Six-Point i Aid Program Readied DENVER, Oct. 29 W Presi dent Eisenhower gave embat-! j tied Secretary of Agriculture Benson's flexible support program his 100 per cent backing today and made it clear Benson is remaining in the Cabinet. This is the interpretation White House news secretary James C. Hagerty made of a hospital room statement by the President asserting that they were in agreement on a six- point program designed to re turn to our farmers a fair share of the national income." Benson went directly to Eisen hower for new assurances of support in a 30 minute confer encfe as farm prices dipped again and the political storm over farm issues gathered more fury NO BACKSLIDING 1 The President's own statement read to a news conference where Benson was questioned, said "the Secretary and I agreed that we should not go back to old policies that have failed to meet the problem in the past." Benson and Hagerty said this referred to the rigid high fixed price formula for farm crops set up during ; wartime and for which many prominent Demo crats and some Republicans have voiced demands The President said he would submit the recommendations to Congress for the new program m a special message early in January. Benson was asked if he con siders the President's statement an indorsement of the policies Benson has been pursuing in a fire of criticism. HAGERTY ANSWERS Hagerty broke in to say he would answer that and told reporters: "I'sure would . . . completely." To which Benson added: "I sure would, too." When asked if it meant that the President was backing the flexible supports and opposing return to rigid supports, Benson said: i "Absolutely." "This Administration, accord ing to the President, and I share the yiew wholeheartedly, will not attempt to out-promise or out-appropriate some who would put politics above needs and lead farmers back, rather than forward." - Senate Leader's View, Page 11 Oxnam Greeted Here; Critics Plan j By BILL ROSE j Tribune Church Editor G. Bromley Oxnam, the con-, Christian unity," he said. "Chris- troversial Methodist bishop who will address a Reformation Day Festival of Faith in Oakland to day, yas met by more than 100 supporters when he arrived at the San Francisco International Airport last night. At the same time Bishop Ox nam was alighting from a United Airlines plane from Washington, D.C.," plans were being made at an "anti-Oxnam" rally in San Francisco to picket the Oakland Auditorium during the Festival of Faith at 3:30 p.m. today: More than 7,500 are expected to attend. Some 305 persons attended the' anti-Oxnam rally in the San Francisco War Memorial Audi-toriumj It was presided over by Dr. Carl Mclntire, president of the International Council of Christian Churches. CARRY 40 PLACARDS The anti-Oxnam forces car ried 40! placards, to be used in the picketing today. Bishop Oxnam said he re gards the protest of his appearance here as "insignificant" and said it was "embarassing but not important." The bishop "told representa tives of various denominations who met him: "I really can't thank you enough. It really takes my breath away."- Bishop Oxnam said the major Protestant denominations "are moving forward together in Christian unity." "The best way to combat communist i unity is to establish West Balks Soviet Anti-NATO Pact Molotov Trying to Deceive World On Peace Hopes and Violating Big 4 Summit Directives, Dulles Says GENEVA, Oct. 29 Lfl The Western Powers tonight rejected Russia's anti-NATO security as a peril to the West. Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav M. Molotov came under heavy criticism at the Big Four foreign ministers conference on the charge his hopes of the world. U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles told the Russian dip-i lomat his: attempt to push through a security pact while delaying any effort to achieve German reunifica tion violated the directives the summit conference laid down three months ago. Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay of France protested that Molotov's .security pact continues to be aimed at the dissolution of NATO, the Atlantic defense alliance. "The French Government will not gamble with security, or do deals about it." Pinay declared. DEADLOCK REMAINS Despite hours of debate in three sessions since Thursday, Russia and the West have made no dent in Europe's status quo: Russia will not roll back from the Elbe line the cold war front in mid-Germany for 10 years. The West will not bargain on the dismantling of the Atlantic alliance, in which more than 400,000 U.S. troops and airmen are committed overseas. Russia will not risk a unifying German election that could put anticommunists in control of that powerful nation of 70,000,000. i The West will make no deal for German reunification that would concede in advance the military neutralization of all Germany. It has two-thirds of Germany arming in NATO now RUSSIA'S TERMS Molotov s security pact was first rebuffed at the Berlin con ference 20 months ago. It calls for the destruction of NATO within three years, bypassing of German reunification, recall of American forces from this continent,- and allowing red China to become an official observer in European political and military organizations. British j Foreign Secretary Harold Macmillan said the se curity pledges in the Soviet pact had nothing solid to sup port them.

COMMENT MADE He had this to say about the 50 Bay Area Protestant ministers who issued a statement opposing his appearance here because of his asserted leftist political views and! denial that the Bible is the infallible word of God: Anese men were not ap pointed to judge my theology, am a bishop of one of the largest denominations in America.

Calls on Egypt, Israel To Halt Raids UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., Oct 29 -j- W The United Nations called on Egypt and Israel tonight to halt reprisal raids and warned that grave moral responsibility would rest on the country that takes offensive action in the frontier hostilities. U.N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold joined Maj. Gen. E. L. M. Burns. Canadian supervisor of the U.N. truce set-up in Palestine, in a strong appeal to both countries to avoid action "which may result in the gravest consequences." Burn '' addressed a lettef'to Israeli and Egyptian officials here but noted that he "'was authorized by Hammarskjold to say. that the appeal is also made in his behalf. CLIMACTIC MEETING The action , came after new flare-ups in the El Auma area and at the end of a series of urgent diplomatic conferences here. They were climaxed' by a meeting here this morning that included British and United States representatives. After noting that the U.N. Security Council had repeatedly condemned armistice violations. Burns said in his appeal: , "In" view of my responsibilities,!
