How can such help be administered/' Dr. Brown said: "The heads of governments, from the presidents and prime ministers and cabinet ministers down to lesser officials and party leaders, as well as teachers and civic leaders should have themselves psychoanalyzed. I mean a brief psychological examination of their emotional patterns. "I do not mean prolonged psychoanalysis, hut a survey of some 40 to 50 hours duration. By psychoanalysis is meant a disentangling of of emotions. We must have our whole emotional life thoroughly thrashed out, aired, understood and clarified."
