Perkins, stale liealth commissioner, warned thai some persons in the United Stares 'are not immune to the neurotic needs to which Hitler's program of domination, aggression proportion, sadism and domicide offered an answer." Those needs can be answered only if a man seeks an understanding of himself, the doctor wrote in an article U> be published in a medical Journal, "Diseases of the Nervous System." "Something is very mistaken! about the way men have been handling Iheir affairs," he said. "Too many Americans can't take it under our present arrangements . . , they are so at odds with the standards of our culture that they must suffer functional disability.'' Some people, he added, become social outcast and eventually are imprLsoned or commitcd to mental hospitals. ,1 Continuous Shows Every Day Box Office Opens 1 :-15 Show Starts 2:00 LISTEN TO KLCN 8:00 a.m. l:>:45 p.m. 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday The Ghost of Mrs. Misir Kith ami A total of 1.C85.203 major crimes were committed in the United States j during 1946, according to FBI records.
