CRANE. PfcJ».,M.D. CASE N-S1»: Nancy Q., aged two, has frightened her young mother. "Oh, Dr. Crane," Nancy's doting mamma bcfan, "I wonder if Nancy is subnormal? "For 1 have noticed that when 1 place her in her bed at night, she often slips her hand down under the covers to play with herself! "Isn't that awful? "Could it be some inherited defect? "And will it lead to insanity in later years? I am scared almost to death!" AUTO EROTICISM What seems to have frightened this young mother is what we ' technically describe as auto-eroticism. That means self-stimulation of the sensitive sexual areas of the body. It is also called masturbation. And it is no reflection on a child's intelligence nor if it a sign of hereditary defects. Furthermore, it is not a producer of insanity! Indeed, a majority of both sexes indulge to some greater or less degree in childhood, or even till happy marriage precludes toe need. This is merely an unwise habit that usually starts by accident. For most mothers place their babies on the stool, waiting for a bowel movement after the morning feeding. But sometimes the baby is stow U> (his regard, so it grows restless. Such enforced idleness makes the child wave its hads aod arms around, just to drain off excess energy. Jf there are no hand gadgets nearby to serve as toys or . distractions, it may ac- Uy strike an erogenous and thus obtain a novel cuddle, as a wooly lamb or cloth puppy or a doll, etc. Not only does one of these toys divert its attention and occupy its hands outside the covers, but the child will relax faster and then fall asleep. For kiddies tend to regard their toy puppy or doll or wooly lamb as if it were a human companion. Such a toy thus reassures the youngster, much as would a livng brother or sister, who might occupy an adjacent bed in the tame room. Children often feel fearful about being shut away from their parents at bedtime, so they will cry and ask for many drinks of water or trips to the bathroom. And they may demand that the light be left on. A toy bedfellow often eliminates much of this pre- sleep "stalling." for it lets the toddler feel safer to have a companion to whom it may talk. Don't make an issue of autoeroticism or threaten the child with dire divine punishments, such ai insanity or feeblemindedness! Just re-channel the child's hands into more constructive outlets.

"WEIL, BOWS, IT IODM LIKt A NfW m . ^^ -..fiitt BUSINESS MIRROR Wall Street attitude is flight from reality • ByJOHNCUNMFF AP kusiMM analyst NEW YORK (AP) - There is a widespread belief in Wall Street, as elsewhere, that things can get just so bad before they must begin improving again. But realistically, everyone knows such an attitude is a flight from reality. Too often the fellow who has a streak of bad luck gets slugged again. And how often is a spell of bad weather followed not by fair skies but by more storms? The news in the business world is bad. And although harried analysts and hopeful brokers keep saying the turn has to come any day now, they say so for effect rather than from conviction. The bad news piles up. Chrysler lost 129.4 million in the first three months of the year. General Motors, net income fell 33 per cent to $348 million. And Ford earnings drooped 26 per cent to $124.4 million in the first quarter. The impact of such tremendous declines becomes more evident when you realize that last year these three companies accounted for $40 billion in direct sales. Moreover, they were the chief customers for billions of dollars worth of glass, tires, fabrics and plastics. And through the use of their product*, billions at dollars in oils, gasolines and greasi-a were sold. There are losses in the air also. Just when the travelling public was convinced it could fly anywhere. The Boeing Company reported an earnings decline and announced « "severe deterioration in the commercial airplane market " And weren't computers supposed to solve all problems' International Business Machines, the premier blue chip of ihe 1960s, announced utmost at the same time that K experts .1 difficult year, very likely *,(), | OWCT earnings But doesn't IBM make computers?

Anyway, nobody wins wars any more. We pounded Japan and Germany to their knees, then helped them to their feet. But if Americana have needed an incontrovertible example of the futility of ovcrcxtcnding ourselves, this Uirng m Vietnam should be Ilia I. Whatever (he outcome of our involvement in Vietnam. we will suffer dreadfully debilitating side effects from this war for generation*. We count as casualties of war only ihc dead and wounded What of malleable boys who are able to march home in legions but with a monkey on their backs? According to official estimates, "Mi per cent of our Vietnam Cls have smoked marijuana, 60 per cent regularly do." How many men bring home an addiction to harder drugs, more readily available in isiatic war than in any war heretofore, is inestimable. Congress hears testimony that the incidence of venereal disease among our Saigon- is un- area troops precedenled." Mental problem! deriving from the no-win nature of this conflict are "unprecedented. The desertion rate in this war is "unprecedented." And never before from any war have American* sent home guns Lo hf usfid attains! Americans' They do from this one Custom* cannot examine every inbound mail shipment, but one day In Ihc one port of San Francisco they did open everything. They found 62 weapons and six grenades. This indicate* that rtflea. pistols and packages of explosives arc being mailed home by Cls, hundreds each week. Some, traced by our FBI, are intended for the armories of revolutionaries. In no war heretofore has the enemy been so Indistinguishable that the woman pushing ihc perambulator may be smuggling weapons, the boy on the bike any moment may lots a grenade. If an American soldier shoots last, he may be dead; if he shoots first he may face court-martial. But of all the noxious fallout from this pulled-punches war, none is more devastating than its disillusioning and disruptive effect on home- front morale. Every war heretofore has pulled us together; this one is tearing us apart. Students find repugnant the hypocrisy of fighting Communists in Asia and tolerating them in Cuba. Some blame a vaguely defined "Establishment"; others openly blame our country, renounce our ism, profane our Flag. There is only one way we can come fame "winners" (roni (hi* war and that Is if we have l*arned from it what not U> do otKt Ume.
