MONDAY, AUGUST?. 1?55. IROMWCOD C4C"E, CD. M"CI!IG/M SEVEN The WORRY CLINIC By DR. GEORGE W. CRANE Lola wants to know the modern scope of psychology so scrapbook this case. Psychology has changed in Us definition several times since Aristotle but the current definition is listed he- low. Since success is at least 50 per cent due to psychology, he sure you make it your hobby! CASE W-461: Lola G., aged 16, Is a high school junior. "Dr. Crane," she began. "I am to make a 5-minute talk at our Science Club Meeting next week. "And my topic is 'Psychology, 1 so could you give me a little outline of what psychology really is?" PSYCHOLOGY DEFINED Originally, psychology was considered the science of the soul. "Psyche" was the Greek word for "soul" while the term "logos" meant the "study of" or the "science of." That "logos" is changed to "logy" and thus Is the rin a 1 part of geology, biology, anthropology, etc. But nobody could tell what the soul looked like, nor its color, shape or area. Yet the basis of any science must be a self-evident fact, like the axioms in geometry. Consequently, the definiti o n of psychology was changed to the science of consciousness. But even that word "consciousness" caused debate and confusion. For instance, where does consciousness end and unconsciousness begin? And how does "unconscious" differ from "subconscious?" They are not the same, as you can recall, for a boxer knocked out in the ring would not reach down to pull up the covers, if cold air blew across him. Yet In sleep, you will subconsciously reach down for more covers! Furthermore, in sleep, If you roll to the very edge of your bed, you then roll the other way next time and avoid falling upon the floor. If you were unconscious, you would not realize you were on the edge of the bed! In addition, we find that a hypnotized patient can be given a new name and react consciously to school books and similar problems, yet be totally unaware of her previous personality. She can thus have a dual personality, so Dr. Morton Prince, former pioneer Harvard psychol ogist, described this situation as an evidence of co-consciousness. Therefore, we have four words: conscious, unconscious, subconscious and co-conscious, so in recent years we have discarded the definition of psychology that called it the "science of consciousness." Instead, we now define psychology as the science of behavior. This includes not just "deportment" but actions and reactions to heat, light, sound, pain, etc. It also covers speech and speech symbols, like pri n t e d words, musical notes, money, signs, etc. And "behavior" even exte n d a to the actions of mice, white rates and guinea pigs, which are often used in psychology laboratories for tests on motivat 1 o n, memory, sexual behavior, etc All of you are thus psychologists when you observe your companions and become adept at selling, advertising, publ i c speaking, writing, or wlnn ing friends. In fact, the best Applied Psychologists in the land are often business executives, edi t o r s doctors, politicians and parents even though they may neve! have taken a single course In psychology at college.

Viet o r Keefer was authorized to set up a meeting between school personnel and the board's salary representatives in this matter, namely Charles Johnson, Jack Pattison and Plutchak.

A committee of Carl Haas, Jack Hawley and Pattison was appointed to discuss the matt e r with the bidder and to m a k e sure the roof would be bonded for 20 years. Attorney Donald L. Munro explained the necessity of assuring the roof would be bonded and suggested that the board make this a policy in all work that is to be done. The above committee was empowered by the board to act in the roof repair matter. A request by Richard O'Connor of the welfare department a hold the county medicare facility vote at the same time as ;he school bond issue, vote was turned down because the bo a r d felt it would not be good to hold the two bond issues at the same time.

He said the Citizens Com mlttee had taken films of the On tonagon High School and grade he wants to know whether he should take them too. This is a highly controversial subject and no pat answer can be given, it is true that in one group of children whose growth had definitely been stunted by severe asthmatic attacks stano- zolol, a male hormone, brought j their growth back within the ' normal expectancy based on age and height. In another group, who were shown to have a deficiency of the pituitary gland (pituitary school while in session last spring and that they were ready to edit them and write a commentary prior to presentation to civ 1 c, church and community groups. Board members Schon and Neuman volunteered to meet with the committee to work on the film. Attorney Munro and the board discussed the facts concern i n g bonds, interest and other matters involved in the bonds. Boy I s Killed ByCorVVftee/ HUTOH1NSON, Kan. (AP) — A wheel came off a race car and hurtled into a crowd of spectators Sunday, striking two 9-year-old boys. One was killed and the other was Injured critically. The accident occurred during the national championship jalopy races. Steven Paul Hasty, son of Mr and Mrs. Paschal Scott of AT kansas City, Kan., was struck and killed while standing aboul six feet from his mother south of the fairgrounds grandstand. The wheel flew another 50 fee and hit Johnny Cain, son of Mr. and-Mrs. Eddie Cain, Hutchln- son. The boy suffered head injuries. The jalopy driver, Herb Copeland, 25, of Dodge City,, collapsed in shock when he learned of the death. dwarfs; or who were late maturing, methandrostenolone, also a male hormone, caused an increase in height. Both dru g s have the disadvantage that they are likely to hasten the onset of puberty. It Is often difficult to differentiate between a hereditary tendency to be short and lowered activity of the pituitary. It is likewise hard to tell wheth e r the increase in growth after taking the hormones would have occurred without them. In all children at some time In puberty there is a period of rapid growth but no one can predict when it will start. Some children with a short stature are backward in school and because of their self-consciousness become socially withdrawn.* When given growth hormones ome of them show marked im- irovement in the classroom and n social behavior. In others, however, the problems of maladjustment He deeper and, even hough their' stature increases, 0 heir psychological problem remains as acute as ever. For this reason it is unwise to rush nto a course of hormonal treatment without a thorough psycho- ogical as well as physical checkup. Another deterrent to this type of treatment is that it is still very expensive. Furthermore in some children over-stlmulati o n of growth results In a short spurt which .stops short of the desired height. These persons thus fail to attain the height that they should have reached had they not taken the hormone. Until much more is known about the factors that control growth the best course Is to teach your short child to be complacent. Many famous men have been shorter than average. As B. B. Goldbloom so aptly expressed it: "What goes into a child's mouth is less important than what comes out of it."
