WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1952 THREE Mary Hatvorth's Zaitor's Note: Man interrit'd In •oelil jclence« »nd music c»nnot find frfrndj to ghare his tastes. DEAR MARY HA WORTH: I am »• single man in my twenties, ana each year my situation seems less mission, and wanting more "help" than youtould give, I think:. Up to now, you've been stalling about your problem, not really studying it, as you claim. Your delv- hopeful as to meeting decent girls! ln S lnto various branches of re- for friendship and possibly mar- i search—sociology, psychology, psy- rlage. I was reared in a rural com- cniatrv . etc.—has been an attempt munity where there wern't more to occupy yourself, as an antidote to than half a dozen decent girls my age; and since graduation I have! Reading case histories, and corn- lost track of all my school friends, mitting theories to memory, doesn't My church here is attended by only a handful, and offers no social t life or chance at friendship. While! solve personal difficulties. And you can't make progress in human relations by cogitating in a vacuum. Inin school I was more interested Jn] sight is of no value unless it is getting an education — although I wasn't very studious—than in eater- translated into behavior that deals effectively with others. ing to the whims and fancies of the \ opposite sex. : Finally Facing I have delved into socioloev and '• T t ti 1.1 related subject*, also into v*cL*S[ Toivarfh Healik and psychology, hence I am able to see rny problems objectively. But even so I can't seem to decide upon a course of action to solve them; and as I have no confidante, I have overcome my reluctance to write you. I must have some advice. Loneliness is part of my problem, naturally. I am interested in the sciences, and I enjoy good music and the finer things of life. I read widely and long for the company of others my age, of like tastes and Interests, with whom I might exchange views. I have considered membership in one of the higher class reliable friendship clubs, and would like to have your opinion of these groups. The one I have in mind is reliable, I am sure, not a racket of any sort. With gratitude for your views, I am—D. L. Why Some Folks Miss. Happiness DEAR D. L.: I have no knowledge of any "friendship clubs" so-called. But I can imagine that the membership would .be composed of lonely distressed persons who are tacitly, rejected by the good society in their j surroundings. Why have they been' left out^-by-passed by the happy lolks? Because unfortunately they are afflicted with negative feelings about self and others, I suppose. Thus I cannot believe that such an aggregation of ailing egos could produce a constructive solution ol your problem of isolation from well- rounded people. Rather I expect the experience would be an emotional shock— a further depressant to your fragile self-esteem—if you were to mingle with that type of group for an evening. In looking there for an estimable friend, you would find only a dismal variety of men and women, milling uncertainly on a similar No doubt the imperative need ol j extrovert action was beginning to dawn on you when you took pen in hand to confide in me and ask advice. And I commend your courage in breaking out, of your isolation, even to this extent. A Chinese proverb says "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"— and in putting aside false pretense of self sufficiency at long last, you are taking steps in the direction of normalcy. Now for guidance. It is my conviction that mere instruction from a distance can't solve your problem or change your luck. Basically you need emotional re-education, a corri- plete .shift of feeling about yourself —from hangdog deprecation to real self confidence.

It is a matter of finding in the analyst a truly wise, trustworthy friend, who sees in the patient a genuinely likeable human being, temporarily handicapped by a lot of "sick" notions about himself, that tend to vanish when rationally examined. You write from an area abundantly staffed with psychiatric services, on a clinic basis or in private practice, as you prefer, and my advice Is to seek self-help along this line, rather than lapse into the discouraged ranks of "friendship clubs."—M.
