The statements she subsequently made, says Bernstein, indicate that the woman lived in Ireland 200 years ago as Bridey—or Bridget—Murphy.

'Hard scientific evidence says that hypnosis is an explosive thing to play with," says the American Psychological Assn., an organization of 15.000 psychologists and research psychiatrists. "Psychological research on the subject has not yet told us enough about it so that it can be_used except with great care." Seeking to check the scientific background for taking a subject By way of by-products, the book has" stimulated activity by other amateur hypnotists and has deeply disturbed clergymen and psychologists. Clereymen object on the ground that conclusions are being drawn which contradict basic tenets of Christianity. Psychologists, who often use the technique of taking patients back in time to study human behavior, object on two counts: 1.

On these mechanics they were in agreement: When a subject under hypnosis is told to go back and relieve his past—scientists call it regression- he will comply to the best of his ability, drawing on all the resources at his command. These resources may include the memory of past experiences, Knowledge he has gained from other sources—and fabrication. "It is important to note tha there are two kinds of regres sion." said Dr. Louis R. Wolberg Large Write-In Yore Expected In New Hamphire CONCORD. N. H. observers will be watching for any large scale write-in movement on the Republican vice . presidential preference poll in New Hampshire's flrst-in-the-nation presidential primary tomorrow.

York Medical Center. •One is true regression, which a good subject is able to relive parts of his natural existence which he can no longer consciously recall. The other, by far the most common, form is nothing more than hypnotic role playing." Experimenters, at Yale University School of Medicine took another tack: they projected into the "future" five subjects who previously had been taken back into the past; and received equally convincing performances in either direction. "The stories they gave were quite plausible in view of each subject's background," comment- ei' Dr. Richard Newman, profes. sor of clinical psychiatry. A medical student, for example, was told it is an afternoon in October, 1963. He immediately reported himself busy with an emergency operation, even describing the patient's abdominal cavity. "We believe that' each of our subjects, to please the hypnotist, I'antasied a future as actually here, and now," reported Drs. Robert Rubenstein and Jay Katz, both instructors in. clinical psychiatry at Yale. Actor Awarded His Sports Car SANTA MONICA, Calif.

Mrs. {Catherine Crawford asked for a restraining order to prevent the actor from reclaiming the $5,000 roadster. She said their two children, Kim, I, and Kelly, 4, particularly like riding in It. But Superior Judge Edward B. Brand observed, in settling this dispute: "I know the children might also enjoy going to the market on a horse or playing with a .48 caliber machine gun, but it won't be logical." Mrs. Crawford has a suit for separate maintenance pending. The actor, who tiled a cross complaint for divorce, said he loaned the car to his wife last December but needs it now for transportation.
