BLTTHEVTLM5 (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Psychiatrist Calls Prinking Unwise Slogan It'Men of , Distinction May Drink to Extinction' BALTIMORE, Deo. 22'CUP)—Dr. Robert V. Seltger said today that "men of distinction may drink to extinction." Sclljer is •. psychiatrist on the Johns Hopkins University staff and executive director of the National Comlttee .on Alchol Hygiene, Inc. Re Is preparing for publication in April a report designed to show that "drinking alcoholic beverages In thjys atomic, mechanized, streamlined,-Insecure world Is unwise." That Is SeligerV aproach to alcoholism—that drinking "Is unwise, not sinful." It can kill you. It can make,'you "tell off the boss," 't can. "caus« sex indiscretions In young ladles," it Is costly, and It "makes a driver a menace." Seltger'B point, as stated In an advance summary of his April report. Is that: "Alcoholics are sick people and need and should receive medical care and treatment." Selinger produced several punchy slogans to "take the romance out of drinking." "Men of distinction may drink to extinction." . "It's .smarter not to drink." "Nice people are running amok via the use of alcoholic beverages." "Never drive after drinking (even one beer) and never drink when driving." • He recommends permanent re roeatlon of the driving licenses of •11. drunken drivers. Not a Prohibitionist Seliger Is not a prohibitionist. He Just thinks people, should be told of the d&ngers of drinking. He concedes that "some people can drink Mfley without becoming chronic alcoholics." He even will agreu that, "phor- macologically, alcoholic beverages may be classified to a very slight, degree 'as having some food value, and perhaps 43 temporarily allaying some tensions':" Nevertheless, the effect of alcohol YATies "from that or a sedative drug to an hypnotic drug, a narcotic drug, a temporary anesthetic and, in some cases, producss complete permanent anesthesia." '.'Complete permanent anesthesia" jneans "death." Whether a person becomes an alcoholic depends on his ancestry, hla early emotional experiences, hU meUlbolism, and "his present llfe- Rituation and problems." Steady drinking without la produces, largely ai a consequence of malnutrition and vitamin B-l deficiency, the hallucinations known u dejlrium tremens. 'Fuzzy' Wonts a Home "FiiMy" Js an orphan.
