SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1957. THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPOBT, INDIANA PAGE FIFTEEN Wine-Loving Italians Have Lowest Rate Of Alcoholism NEW YORK CUP) — Because Italians are among the heaviest ocmsnimers of akctnol (iu wine) in the world, it wiH surprise no one to learn that the average Ite thinks mlk is only for babies. Bat because IteMans aiso han/e one oif the lowest rates of alcoholism in the world, their 'ways of ha'xffimg beverages couild be useful iElformatJOin for cmunteies where ad'CoMisim is a problem — such a s Che United Spates. Dr. Gdongao TJHi of Yale Univer- si-fcy and Dr. Pienpaolo Luzzatto- Fflgiz of 'tlhe-Doxa Institute, Milan, Italy, are engaged in a scientific gathering oif tihat infonmiaitisom. Their newest finding— from ques- tioramg 1,453 representative IbaM- Bcerins Italians and mik. Milk Use Declines "More tan 85 per cent of the sample had been breast fed _in infancy, and couild discuss this experience with few or no adutt in- faMiomis," tSheiy. repooteld. "The subjects conitimued to -use mfflc but in steadfly decreasing amounts from early dhldtaod- to adolesemce aoid easriy adulthood. At tlhe same time, there was presumably a parallel decrease in the 'emioteonal attadhimeats .to milk whiicSa ex- pressed the psychoitogoicall naitiher than the physatologiicai needs of the individual!." Among "the major factors" whdich haive prevented "aibcohoffiic excesses amd alcohol addiction" in Italy, the scJenitisite thought "the appredaitEon of milk especially pertinent" because "mik is the fsret food to wfoddh the newborn dhilid is exposed, a fond which supplies not only physical noiurish- •meinit but the protection an/d the sswrNty of a miothier's love." "It prwiidtes the child with mixed or blended or. confused pleasures of bcdy amd mind. Most ol the heaMhy, fundamental emotions which lead to adequate growth and social adjustment of Ihe individual are liniked with ...the expewemoes involving the use of milk by the "infant, and to the resultant relationships between .mother and dhffld," they saM, Attitudes Are Different "Whereas the aiwemaige Italian thinfcs -mi* is for babies and wine, with meals, is for adults, "IThe attfitadies and addons of am alcoholic" are strikingly dfiferenit," t'hiey said. "To a certain exitenit, X ailcio5iol ne'ipnesents to the alcoholic whiat mfflt represents to the in- fant. Alcohol gives to~ the adult ail- edtooi/e a combioation of' physio- Ojcgdical and psychological satisfactions wMirih, in many ways, seem, ocimpareiblle to the gratifications suppled by mik tn the.infant." Im the final stages of alcoholism, they aidded, "The alcoholic seems •to be restlessly searching for al- oohol in the same way the newborn infant searches for mik. Tfaiis •confusion iis obviously uncoimmon amiomg Italians, for the incidence of alcoholism among these people —notwiith.«ibainding their large use of wine—is Very low." Tlbey painted out that the alcoholism raite is high in ooumtries where adiult milk consumption _ is high. Nevertheless, "any nofoion that it is this use of milk whiidh primarily determines the rate of alcoholism would be afbsuiib amd totoly with'oult foundation. It woiuld be equiaMy absurd, however, to hope that .aDcoholism (might be alfeviated OT prevented by such simple devices as increased consumption of mik- by aduis. Only identiecatton of thie underlying causes, of- atoMism and their affleviation can be effective in thib problem oif mental ihealth." ROCHBTER ROCHESTER—The 1956 report of the county-owned Woodlawn hospital, published this week, shows that a total of 195 patients more were cared for at the hospital in 1956 than during the previous year. For 1956, a total of 1,688 patients were admitted, compared to 1,493 for 1955. Days of hospitalization for these patients totaled 10,489, increased from 9,405 the previous year. The birth rate continued to rise In the county, too. The hospital statistics show in 1956, 431 were -recorded. The year before, there were 401 births. The average daily number of patients in the hospital for 1956 was 28.7, an increase of three from the 1955 average. Laboratory tests rose from 8,492 in 1955 to 10,816 in 1956, partly accounted for by the increase in facilities occasioned by the opening of the new wing of the hospital. Operating room cases also increased substantially, from 689 to 804, of whom 308 were major operations in 1956. The hospital's kitchen served 554,295 meals in 1956, increased from 43,877. From fehe financial side, the hospital's total cash receipts were up almost 25 per cent. The 1956 total was $212,384.24, compared to $169,586.75 received in 1955. Funds balance at the end of 1956 was $20,625.11, compared to $54,390.78. An increase in operating expenses occasioned by greater hospital use and raise in capital investments and improvements during the year's building program accounts for the decrease. The hospital's board of trustees is composed of Ernest Baxter, Charles -Moyer, John Werner and Roscoe Pontius. Bernice Rannels is superintendent and the-hospital's full-time staff of 50 consists of a bookkeeper, three clerical workers, two X-ray teshnicians, one supply worker, one maintenance man, one janitor, one part time dietician, two cooks and three assistants, three laundry workers, 16 graduate nurses and, 166 practical nurses.

The work, in some 3,000,000 words and seven volumes, will ne f o an vid with publication of The Age of Reason" five years rom now. "I'll be 77 then and-maybe'.walking on intellectual crutches," he ays.

Hoffa worked Saturday to ge ival Teamsters Union factions _t< lose ranks and gird for a comin Battle-to avoid expulsion from th AFL-CIO. ^dve Beck, retiring union president, proposed a lO-million-dollar Teamsters battle fund to be ready 'or use against rival unions in the -vent the Teamsters are ousted from the parent labor body on corruption charges. But Hoffa, now hi full command »f the 1%-mllioTvmember Team- jters organization, said he is opposed to Beck's plan and intends o work hard to keep the Teamsters, inside the AFL-OTO family. Hoffa was overwhelmingly elected by a 3-1 margin as Beck's successor by Teamster convention delegates- yesterday and actually is to take over from Beck on Oct. 15. Plainly irked at Beck's proposal, Hoffa said he would never "fire the firs* shot in a civil war ,n the American' labor movement," and there would be time enough, when and if the Team- stars get booted out of the AFL- CIO, to plan then what retaliatory actions and funds may be necessary. Hoffa and Beck are deeply involved in scandals developed in Senate Rackets Cotmmittee hearings. Both have been labeled by the AFL-CK)'? powerful Executive Council as corrupt and unfit to remain in orgnized labor.

You have to find what happened But even the contemporary witnesses don't agree. You have to play one against the other. Rocking Relieves Tension "When tne research is done, 'Operation Theft' ends and 'Operation Sweat' begins. At home, in, Hollywood, 1 do all my work in a rocking chai' with big arms, over which I put a drawing board. And all day long, as I write, I rock just a little bit Rocking relieves tension, and I think maybe we wouldn't need psychoanalysis if we brought back the rocking ehair in America." He chuckled at the thought. "I write each book twice in longhand, making revisions, and then I type it myself. You can't just put down facts. You have to feel the thing. You deal with things like Charles I wearing five silk shirts when he went to the beheading block—they didn't wear underwear in those days, 1649 and it was in January." The overall project called "The Story of Civilization," has been bailed ia the literary world as 'awe - inspiring," "monumental," "massive and fascinating." Durant says he has never for one moment been sorry he started it: "On the contrary, I felt very lucky It gives unity to my life and writing. When I get up. in the morning, I don't have to ask myself, What shall I do next?' It's ail laid out tor me." Durant came here for the pufoli- .'.ation this month of the sixth volume, "The Reformation," covering European civilization from Wyclif bo Calvin Previous volumes appeared in 1935, 1939, 1944, 1950, and 1953 He closes the newest volume with. "Courage, reader! We near the end." - Fights With Wife "My wife," te says; "reads the same books that I do We fight a great deal over the interpretation, asd that helps me About 9:30 every evening we break out in a terrific argument. In the present book she thought T was too tough "on Martin Luther. For two years we had a running fight on Luther vs. Erasmus. x^ "This helped me feel the drama- tie conflict during the reformation between two types of mind—Luther, the revolutionist, the Erasmus, the evolutionist. We even put pictures of those two boys on the •cover " "In view of the past, where ar« we headed nght now? "More of the same—international conflicts. Conflicting forces seeking an order When an order is found, a new conflict arises, and so it goes from generation to generation. And it's just as well. What is life without conflict? What good is a wife if she always agrees and doesn't argue with you? Where would capital be if it didn't have labor to contend with? We grow, by conflict and opposition," CROSSWORD PUZZLE Answer to Yesterday's PuzzH Driver WeW After Car Leaves High Ralph Smetzly, 62, of route 1, Twelve Mile, escaped injury when his car went off the road and stopped on its top as he turned off road 24 into Lovers Lane at 7:15 last night.
