IVo Logansport, Indiana. Pharos-Tribune Patients Entrusted With Keys Show Improved Mental Health ons, probably, are oughly locked and NEW YORK (UP)_A director of a 1,000-bed mental hospital reports that simply giving some patients keys to keep aid to use will bring about an improvement in their mental conditions.' No other places, not even pris- more thor- keyed than mental hospitals. Yet, as Dr. Aaron < S. Mason said, "almost com? plete silence is maintained" about those locks and keys. "To the mental patient, the key is the most significant symbol of liis helplessness." said Mason. "It is viewed as token of the whole structure of power and responsibility in the mental hospital." Heads VA Hospital Mason is professional services director of the Brockton (Mass.) Veterans Administration Hospital. There, as in other mental hospi- Poker Game Stake Lost But Long Life Gained HOT SPRINGS, S. D.—Dr. Patrick Hedges came to South Da- tals, every room, every closet, every cabinet — ercry cubicle or receptacle of any kind — has its lock and a corresponding key. Certain Brockton patients are given keys to rooms in which they can carry out their assignments in "industrial therapy." Although the hospital was opened in 1953, "no untoward incident has resulted from this policy." On the other hand, "we have observed marked improvement in some patients when they are given the recognition and responsibility of handling keys," Mason said. He looked forward to a day when locks and keys are used in mental hospitals in the same way they are used in homes—"mainly for the protection of property." He thought that more and more "the concept of custody and con- China Responsible For 65 Per Cent of World Opium Traffic WASHINGTON (UP) — Federal Narcotics Commissioner Harry J. _ = Anslinger said 'today that Red tal" hospital" "administrators "and CniM '« responsible for more than . . . knlf ^f *-!»« ;n: n :t- ...~_u , pn_ :_ more and more they were accepting the "trend of the open hospi- trol" was dying out among men- tal." Some Hospitals Are Open An "open hospital" is one in which there are no locked doors, and patients may come and go as they please. The advocates of this practice still are in a minority in psychiatry but definitely there is Mason said that at Brockton almost half the patients are in unlocked wards and their number has doubled in the last two years. A basic premise of the "open hospital" advocates is that if mental hospital patients are given to understand they 'are incapable of assuming responsibilities, they will .react by being thoroughly irresponsible. dition to his garage and William Coddington, 417 W. 12th St., for an addition to his house.

Ausiinger, who also heads the United Nation's Commission on Narcotic Drugs, said the 'U.N. has received evidence of "enormous" shipments of opium from the Chinese mainland comprising 65 per cent of the world traffic. He said the Chinese Reds are "not making any effort" to halt the shipments. In fact, he said,- the Chinese Nationalists believe the Communists are using the illicit trade to finance purchases of strategic material." The Middle East, he said,' is the second enief source of the illegal traffic.. Anslinger said in an interview that the illegal narcotics traffic in this country now is greatest in New York, California, Illinois, Michigan and Texas. He said most of the nation's 50,000 "users" take heroin, an opium derivative, by hypodermic needle. The traditional opium pipe Jury Clears Doctor In Income Tax Case INDIANAPOLIS (-UP)—A Federal Court jury of nine men and three women.late Wednesday acquitted a New York physician of. charges he evaded more than $12,000 in income taxes while practicing medicine here several years ago. Dr. Morris Salzman, 38, now, a. resident physician in Bellevue Hospital in New York City, broke into a wide grin when the jury announced its verdict less than an •hour after it had 1 retired to consider the case. • The government had accused Salzman of "willfully intending" to evade taxes tor 1950-51-52. Government attorneys had contended that Salzman used 13 bant accounts to hide his income. Defense attorneys said Salanan's financial accounts were handled by his mother who opened many of the accounts without his knowledge.
