**< WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GIOBE, IRONWOOD. MICHIGAN Five The WORRY CLINIC By DR. GEORGE W CRANE Rodney could sympathize with Biblical David, for David almost went "stir crazy" after hiding in dark caves to avoid evil King Saul. So David wanted to lift up his eyes to the hills and view the distant horiz o n . Modern frustrated folks have the same urge, so use pastoral paintings as p s y- chological tranquilzcrs. CASE W-457: Rodney S., aged 22, is the geology student who found that he overcame much of his claustrophobia by using pastoral scenes as pictures. "Dr. Crane," he added, "when I look at these pictures, ;t seems as if I am literally view- Ing a distant horizon sev e r a 1 miles away. "Yet the wall of my tiny study room is literally not 6 feet from my eyes. "But these pictures give me the effect of additional windows through which I can view distant landscapes. "I was about to go 'stir crazy' as they call it in prison language, until I put these pictures on the walls." STIR CRAZY Sometimes prisoners get such an attack of the jitters at being confined within a small dungeon, that they go berserk. They are said to be "s t i r crazy." and many hectic American! outside of prison walls also fee so frustrated and jittery that they resort to big doses o: tranouilizers. 1 Instead, they should imitate | ancient David who had been hid ing in caves to escape evil King Saul. Perhaps David also suffem from claustrophobia, for he had been an outdoor shepherd boj in his youth. Maybe he felt akin to modern prisoners who go "stir crazy.' So David discovered the tran "All I said was: Show me a filter that delivers the taste and I'll eat my hat" ulzling therapy of past oral cenes. I will lift up mine eyes unto he hills," he cried out. For David wanted to view he real hills, as in his boyhood shepherd days. But many of us nowadays, live n large cities, the streets of which are simply deep canyons massive towering limestone and steel man-made mountains. So we have foreshortened vision. We can't rest our eyes on ! ar distant horizons. But we can simulate that same beneficial effect by placing pictures on our walls which let us figuratively view distant moun- ;ain ranges or the whitecaps on the sea. Or waving wheat fields silhouetted against beautiful cloud formations. Medically speaking, we psychiatrists urge patients to rest their harassed souls by appropriate pastoral painting . Portraits don't do the job as well. And some of the recent horrendous impressionistic see nes are enough to drive a disturbed patient Into a psychosis. So surround yourself, anc even your tiny tots of nursery age, with at least few picture that will figuratively pun c h large holes in the confini n g walls of their small bedrooms. Let their souls relax by lean ing their eyes against the dis tant hills, as David did. Salvage all the scrap pap e r available so your youngster: can draw and sketch. Prai s e them liberally. Our five Crane children all be came adept at sketching largely because I employed mimeographed final exams at North western University and then let our children draw on th back side of those thousands o sheets after I had scored th exams. Availability of pencil or cray ons, as well as paper, plus ; little praise, can tip the scale in favor of art appreciation, so encourage your youngsters to draw pictures and enjoy art.
