FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1352 BLYTHEVILLE (AnK.1 COURIER NEWS PACE FIVE AMA Journal Takes Poke At TV Horror Show Effects On Health of U.S. Children By ROBERT GOLDENSTEIN I the health of the nation's children. CHICAGO (ft— The Journal o( Ihc American Medical Association took a swipe today nt some of television's crime • and - horror programs, saying they cou\d endanger Ike's Twinkling Eye Wins Ladies Over Holf of Crowd At Philadelphia Is Female; Was It Shantz? Br EU,V. LOFTUS PHILADELPHIA W)—OOP presidential candidate Dwtght D. Eise.n- hower is using his fnmons twinkling eyes and bib smile along with campaign oratory to win the women voters of the country. Perhaps partially because of this effort, more than half the 250,000 persons who cheered him on Philadelphia's downtown streets yesterday along his 40-block route were women. Some of them ran alongside his car shaking hands and wishing him well. ( And again last night at Convention Hall where he made his first big political speech of the campaign,, n majority of the audience were women. Reporters traveling with the candidate In his two-day tour of the South said they noted the same trend. Peace Is Main Theme Eisenhower's main theme was peace—a subject always close to the hearts of women. His most definite accession to the feminine Interest in politics came at Independence Hall where he remarked: "I believe women are even more impressed because the American heritage strike a little closer to them than to the average man. A mnn working all day long may get too busy at times lo think of the spiritual values ot this great shrine. Women. T think, never."" The female enthusiasm was just too much for one middle-aged lady. She broke through the cordon of protecting police at least a. half dozen times as Ike left Independence Hall to shout: " you. Ike!" And the woman behind Ike, pert Mamie Elsenhower, received a rousing ovation when ushered Into Convention Hall. Holding a bouquet of L- mscs. she waved and waved. Then ' she listened Intently as her husband outlined his peace nrogram. Baseball Draws More Despite 17.500 screaming enthusiasts inside and at least 8,000 out- "Unfortunatcly, astonishing little research has been done on the medical and psychological impact of television on children," the Journal said In an editorial. The Journal said that "for Us own interest" the television industry should acknowledge the "adverse medical and psycholiglca implications" found In many such programs. Should Foster Research "It should foster research on'the impact of television on mind body, and should make a sustained effort to avoid programming shows potentially dangerous to the health of the nation's children," (he edi .orial said, adding: "Indeed, the television industry would be well advised to sccom plish this voluntarily and as rapid )y as possible in order to neutralize the growing hue and cry for gov ernment regulation and its attend ant evils of censorship." The Journal cited two studies In its conclusions: 1. A survey made by TV Maga zine of television programs on Lo Angeles stations the week of Ma 24-30. 2. A survey made by Dr. M. '. Preston In 1941 on the effects o movie horror and radio crlm shows on children. It said the TV Magazine surve showed that in one week Los An geles stations carried 852 majo Saucers Said Nothing But 'Illusions' STUTTGART, Germany <JPI —A jroup of scientists who seriously expect man someday to rocket to Mars say that flying saucers may be nothing but optical illusions. And they are not space ships from another planet, The 200 scientist.-, from 12 countries gathered here for (he Third International Astronautical Congress agreed almost unanimously dial the "saucers" aren't men from Mars or any other Ijody cut- in space. The experts also said Ihey did not believe the reported flying discs were a new weapon—but they did not rule out that possibility completely. Most of the scientists at the congress said, however, they felt the illusion theory probably was correct. They also agreed It would take man many more years of research before he can fly rockets into outer space. But they firmly believe travel between the planets will Ire possible—someday.

You Can Still Make a Million Dollars: Best Chance Is at 80 WASHINGTON (Jf — Your best chances of having an annual Income of a million dollars or more will come when you are between 80 and 89 years old, an Ohio University psychologist reported today. Dr. H. C. Lehman presented statistics to the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association (APA) showing that in general, people who become big- shots in politics, diplomacy, collegiate administration, military life, industry, commerce and the high courts of the land • usually are at least 50 years old: But— He also reported that a man's best years for producing creative wort—like" writing books, painting pictures, or doing big things In science—are usually in the thirties or early forties. Ficiires Released ^ In the field of leadership in pol- pjltics and other endeavors—as distinguished from men who are outstanding in creative fields—the psychologist gave these figures: The most likely age to become president oi the United States. Is anywhere from 50 to 54: ambassador, senator, or boss of the Army from 60 to 64; Supreme Court Justice or speaker of the House of Representatives, 70 to 74; a college president. 50 to 54. About those million dollar plus Incomes: Dr. Lehman failed to state the attributes of the folks who received them; all he said was that oldsters between 80 and 89—without; necessarily working—are the folks • who most usually receive them. He had a separate category for receivers of earned annual incomes ! of $50,000 or more: persons 60 to • 64. On Ajre Differences On the age differences between the "creativity" and "leadership" . fields, Dr. Lehman offered this view: ] "It appears that the conditions essential for creativity and originality, whtrii can be displayed in private achievement, come earlier lhan (hose social skills which con- i tribute (o leadership and eminence j and which inevitably must wait, not upon the insight of the leader himself, but upon the Insight of society about him."
