m 1 THE YORK DISPATCH TUESDAY OCTOBER 5 1971 25 irrgii Thai By Ursula Vfls nOLLYWX)D —There’s one Cling about children’s humor: It really isn’t funny Most of it is Macabre and hostile according to Dr Walter Meyden director of the Foot-lighters Child Guidance Clinic at Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital here "Adults laugh” he said "because the child expresses directly what we as adults must suppress A child’s humor is pushin another kid and laughing when he skins his knee - I "Basically a child’s humor is like an adult’s but ‘the adult must camouflage his hostility That’s why adults End children’s humor so funny: We’re relieved they can do it even if we can’t” Dr Meyden differentiated ' between humor and the jokes— generally unfunny— that kids repeat "The thing that makes a joke fanny” he said "is an illogical quality or the expression of repressed material Most child ren pick up the kind of stupid jokes that don’t mean anything to adults ' ' i'- Spontaneous "Humor is really a spontaneous way of putting thingi together often weird It relieves us of putting things in order If it’s off-kilter we can accept it in the context of a joke "To earry on a conversation requires a great deal of control over -tbs emotions Even puns break down the discipline and we find! it funny— even children do Language is a constraint in the sense that anything that takes discipline requires energy” Children learn the uses of humor early the psychologist said : "In intolerable situation children will try to find something that will make an adult laugh They really learn more about us than we about them "Children also very quickly learn at 5 or 6 the kinds of sexual things that disturb adults the words that are no-nosand they use them to elicit laughter They don’t really know the meaning but they know-that out of context they trail elicit laughter and get them attention Dr Meyden noted that the smile DILLSBURG-f-Borough council has denied an application for permission to build a mobile homes park within the borough the first such request it has' ever received according to officials Turned down in his bid to put the park on a property know as Pinoak Park was Fred Gettys of Fairview Township northern York County The project 50 by 100 feet each in size Gettys said ' " ' - In returning the applicant’s plan and fee borough Solicitor P Nelson Alexander explained: The plan does not show adequate drainage facilities gives no indication ' of sidewalks street numbers street lighting and does not indicate ade quate sewage facilities or disposal or adequate water system "When these things are corrected council will then give the plan consideration” Nelson added !

"The veneer of dvilization Is at the most 10000 years” he said "Behind that are a million years of jungle living lived pretty much on an animal level with an animal type of social organization” Dr Meyden also said that children thesq days laugh at different things than in years gone by — "there’s a topical of Nutrition Mice sciences in the UCLA School of Public Health 12 Pages And it takes 12 pages singlespaced to list her more than 120 publications in scientific books and journals Dr Alfin-Slater criticizes the faddists Quack health advice is dangerous she said because it can delay or prevent an individual from getting proper treatment But she also criticizes the medical profession for slighting the study of nutrition And she regrets that scientists can debunk misinformation but cannot always offer something positive in return Here are' Dr Alfin-Slaters views on some controversial topics concerning nutrition: Vegetarianism— "It’s a difficult diet from which to get all the essential nutrients There is nothing magical about meat fish eggs and milk except that it is easier to have a good diet using these foods” Organic Food— "I don’t believe in' it Organic gardening is fine for a backyard garden but impractical on a large scale There is nothing wrong with the fruits and vegetables in the supermarket They are less expensive and equally nutritious” Organic fertilizers— “I can’t see anything magical in cow manure” Is it sterilized? "I don’t know” Pesticides— "DDT killed all sorts of things that were bothering the food supply Now it’s our number one villi an However DDT was not used wisely but on the principle that if a little is good a lot is better I think a judicious use might not be objectionable” Depleted Soils— “A depleted soil will not grow a good crop The only depleted soil we have TWO CALLS ANSWERED BY CITY FIREMEN Smoke from an air conditioning unit in a theater and freon gas escaping from a refrigerator in a home resulted in calls for assistance to city firemen Sunday night A malfunctioning motor emitted smoke in the second-floor projection room at the Southern Theater 30 E Jackson St at 9:13 pm There was no fire Return by Eagle Rescue and Rex companies was at 9:30 pjn -
