THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, I'WENTY-THKhJE Teachers Powerful Force In Shaping Child's Life BY ANNETTE GREEN NBA Staff Writer NEW YORK—(NEA)—How much time and thought do you give to the ichool teachers? Every day they exert a powerful Influence over your child's development as a mentally healthy individual. In the opinion of Dr. Florence Clothier, noted child psychiatrist and member of the faculty of Har. vard Medical School, "we do nothing to attract able and well-adjusted young men and women into public school teaching. "A neurotic, frustrated or dissatisfied teacher with 30 or 40 children in her class can hardly be expected to make up to those children for other deficiencies in their lives." When you recall the teachers who have stayed in your memories over the years, it is because of what they taught you, or the impression they ;ttiade as a personality? Your answer is the key to the type of person you should want to guide your child, says Dr. Clothier. , Teachers share with you the responsibility of building a firm foundation for the life of your youngster, she says. As you know only tpo well, all chi'dren try to be exactly like the adults who are important to them. In the confusion "of today's living, it is easy to follow the wrong standards. ; And no teacher who is emotionally unstable can possibly hide the fact from her students, Df. Clothier points out. Children grasp the pretenses of grown-ups more quickly than is sometimes believable. ; Dr. Clothier also feels that schools •and teachers are falling down tn the methods of presenting knowledge. "Teachers should teach children, not courses." It's reasonable and human that itll children'are not going to be able i to understand all subjects. But, ' then, who, can? She asks. ; Facts and skills should be taught ' with an understanding of how they , urill contribute to the whole per•; tonality development. If a child floes not get satisfaction out of the tasks he is asked to perform, the outcome can never be satisfactory. Too few parents, Dr. Clothier believes, takes the education of their children seriously. Many think school is established as nothing more than a convenience to keep the youngsters occupied while they grow up. Then there's the old enigma of the report card. Often, so much emphasis is placed on these term-end marks, children have actually been known to develop a neurosis about bringing the cards home for judge- ment, Dr. Clothier assert-. One of the greatest obligations that teachers owe to their students, Dr. Clothier stresses, "is to stimulate the individual, from kindergarten to the university, to accept his social responsibilities and equip him with the knowledge and skills to carry them out. "Education should help a child to discover useful work suited to his capacities,'' stresses Dr. Florence Clothier, prominent, in the field of child psychiatry. "Adjustment to reality is an active process, not merely a passive acceptance." In our changing world, everything must be' done by teachers and parents to prepare the younger generation for the demands that certainly will be made upon it. According to Dr. Clothier, "it must be the goal of the psychiatrist, the educator, and the parent to set every child free to develop to the limits of his potentialities for his own satisfaction and for the good of the community."

LOOTS— (INS) —A blood replacement technique which has cut the American mortality rate from massive hemorrhages caused by peptic ulcers was recently described In St. Louis. Dr. Claude E. Welch of Boston, a surgeon on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, and Dr. Cyril Costello, medical director of St. Louis j City Hospital, told of the technique which now Is being used throughout the country. It consists of employing massive blood replacement to counteract effects of hemmorrhaging. With this treatment, surgery can be avoided in most cases, and if surgery is later necessary the patient has had a chance to build up his resistance, overcome shock and thus gain a much better chance of surviving the operation. Dr. Costello said the mortality rate from massive hemorrhages has been reduced at his hospital from 25 per cent to 6.7 per cent since early 1946. Dr. Welch reported a 10 per cent reduction at the Massachusetts General Hospital. The surgeons credit the massive replacement of blood by the establishment of regular • blood banks'in hospitals. Before this practice became routine it usually was impossible to provide the patient with enough transfusions to enable him to recover or to prepare him for an operation.
