I WONDER if anybody can tell anybody else how to have energy to . buna, and especially I wonder if anybody .can teach anybody else -to direct their superabundant energy into useful channels. A book called "Two Lifetimes in One," by Marie Bcnyon Ray (Published by .Bobbs-Mcrrill Co.), has for a .sub-title, "How Never to be Tired:- Eow to Have Energy to . Burn." It takes up this problem of fatigue -which is truly tragic for some of your friends. There are two ways of looking at chronic fatigue. Another name for it, by the way, is "born tired." There is mother's attitude--rthe sympathetic approach--which is that the poor thing has something the matter that causes this tired feeling. And there is father's attitude, which puts it down as pure laziness, and regards it as mostly spiritual in origin. Strangely, modern medical science is more likely to incline to father's hard-boiled attitude than to mother's apparently common-sense remarks. Fatigue does spring from obscure organic changes sometimes, but mostly the causes are in the emotional life. - Never Saw Cure "I never saw a chronic case of fatigue cured by physical means," says Dr, Brill, a well-known New York consultant. "I have seen, some temporary good come of electric shocks and treatments, of rest · and baths, of massage and medicine, but never a permanent cure." " It should be remembered, though, that such a man is likely to seo the severe cases. The milder cases, or just temporary, unexplained fatigue, are liable to respond to something less drastic than a psychological course of treatment. · In the field of diet, for instance, fatigue maycome from stuffing too much food into yourself. "Never eat as much na you want," one doctor iput- it.. **1 believe that a man can (eat practically anything he wants, Jin practically any combination, if only he will eat only half what ho wants." Fisher's Experiment Irving Fisher's experience with a group a? Yala students, whom he put on a diet which cut down by one- fifth the total number of calorics they were accustomed to lingcst, gave -good results in increased physical endurance. One man who could raise a pair of dumbells only J.85 times at the beginning of the [experiment could raise them 500 {times at the end of six months. Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest -""only,'and' then'only through ' his column. ( Another who, at the start, could irise on his toes 300 times, could' (finally do it 3000 times. He had in- 'creased his endurance ten -times.
