Hawaii 'RockFever 9 Real By RUTH YOUNGBLOOD HONOLULU (UPI) - Young newcomers to Hawaii, seeking a« paradise without problems, oflen find "rock fever" instead. They come with their knapsacks, one-way plane tickets and dreams of a lush island with food dropping from the cotonut palms and maidens beckoning from the beaches. When their fantasies are shattered by the hard facts of a cqmpetitive economy, it's back to* the mainland they were so anxious to leave. In Hawaii, the disillusionment th £t often tackles new residents, particularly the young, is called. "rocky- fever." Psychiatrists also rtfer to it as the "banana and coconut syndrome." Or."'•'John- McDermott, the chairman of the psychiatry department at the University of Hawaii's School of Medicine, has found that "rock fever" is no joke. It has actually driven many to the psychiatrist's couch. "Rock fever is a local phrase for people who can't stand being in Hawaii very long, a person who has a great deal of difficulty living with boundaries," he said. "On the mainland one only has to jump into his car to go from one state to another. In Hawaii you go until the ocean But McDermott explained that the superficial symptoms usually reflect a person "who is seeking an easy escape from his problems. "Many of the young people coming to live in Hawaii today are lured by the fantasy of a that Hawaii is a land where coconuts fall to the hungry. When they find out that practically nothing is free and that their longed for paradise has pollution, a bursting population and severe big city problems, rock fever sets in. "The newcomer becomes disillusioned, disappointed and depressed," McDermott said, j This is,frequently reflected in a dislike for the smallness of the Island of Oahu, which can be driven around in four hours, or a fear of being on a place in the middle of the ocean.
