(UP) — Electrical stimulation to certain parts of the brain can be as satisfying to a rat as a good meal of cheese, scientists report. Dr. James Olds,former associate research psychologist, at the University of California here, said that this and similar brain studies on rats may prove to be the key to the treatment of human mental illness. Olds said findings in. animal research indicate that it may be possible in the future to control the reward system of the human brain by medicine and thereby adjust tihe behavior of psychiatric patients. World Tourist Full-Time Job For Bill Harris He Operates World Tours And It's Sometimes A Strain MEW YORK—(NBA)-JBni Harris once had tt> scrounge up a brass bed in the dead of night in Tangiers, Morocco, for an irate cruise passenger who wouldn't sleep on anything else. Among other things, he has also been :ossed out of a native canoe into ;he boiling rapids of the Iguazu River in Brazil. Nevertheless, Harris is in complete accord with the 100 or so people who stop him and say: 'Boy I wish I had your job," for Harris is a full-time world tourist who gets paid for it. As cruise scout for American Express, Harris has logged more than a million miles since 1951, visiting more than 100 countries and most of the world's islands. In his 20 years, in the travel business, he has been around the world 18 times. Every year, new places are opened up for the cruise passen- jers to visit, but they're not new :o Harris. It's his job to have been 'here first and make sure each port of call is ready to handle visitors in the style to which theyre accustomed. The demands can be exacting; HOUSE BLAMED MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Mrs. Laura C. Santostefano told friends her car got a crumpled fender when it was hit by a house. The house was being moved and she encountered it on a narrow bridge. Venus passes nearer to the earth than any other planet. At times it is only 25 million miles away, although it also goes as far as 161 million miles from the I earth. Gaocf GJi££Ji F.A. ButzLumberCo. Walton, Ind. overseas cruise passengers are eager for exotic experiences, but after- shelling out from $3,200 to ?35,OOD for a ticket, they also expect the comforts of home —or better. "No matter where Americans go, whether it's -French Equatorial Africa or in the heart of Paris, most of them seem to want air- conditioned rooms,"' Harris says. Today, most of them also want standaixi American food wherever they go, Harris adds, although few are as finicky as the woman he recalls who brought along her own canned food from the U.S. for shore excursions. On his travels, Harris sends a steady flow of reports back to American Express Travel Service advising them, for instance, that are not adverse to meeting the right kind of new man. Of the 150 men on such a cruise, 100 will be-single. Harris falls into this category when he's on board and despite all the ' unattached women it's likely he'll remain that way for a 'while ;at 40 he's still too busy being a professional tourist to settle down. He spends 10 months of the year traveling around the world .another six weeks lecturing in the U.S. on what he's seen. The remaining two weeks he spends stretched put on a lawn chair at his family tome in Swampscott, Mass. "I wouldn't be caught dead traveling on. vacation," he says. • it's O.K. to re-open the Malay ' Peru Peninsula or that they'd better | change hotels in Milan. On a recent swing along the West African' coast, he opened up off-the-beaten-path ports that will jbe available for cruise passengers for the first time. One of these, •which will be visited by the SS Statend'.Tian on its world cruise which starts in January ,is the home port of Dr. Albert Schweitzer at Lambarene. Before he could give tine go- ahead, Harris bad to arrange special flights from the coast and negotiate with local dugou-t canoe pilots for the river leg of the visit. Who takes these trips? Harris figures that out of 500 cruise passengers about 350 will be -women and 150 of these will be unmarried or widowed ,most of whom Lake Titicaca, largest body of water in South America, belongs partly to Boliva and partly to Price Study Shows Name Brand Gains OXFORD, Ohio (UP)—Dr. A. J. Alton associate professor of marketing at Miami University, says advertising's insistence on "name brands" may have helped to hold down retail prices by controlling wholesale markups. Alton said this situation has left the wholesaler ia the middle because his freedom to price and to average his markup "has been curtailed to a considerable degree with the advent of advertising lines and pre^selling of merchandise." He said wholesalers' selling prices often are determined by following the manufacturer's suggested resale price. He found this the practice in 33 per cent of the hardware stores, 69 -per cent of the drug stores and 20 per cent of the drygoods stores studied in a survey in this area. Alton reported iihat in some cases manufacturers had threatened to remove their line if price recommendations were not followed. Camel drivers in Yemen stuff bundles of fodder into the mouths of their beasts before starting a long journey, says the National Geographic magazine. Drivers say that unless the camels are force- fed, they do not eat enough for a prolonged journey.
