A mentally healthy person is characterized by feeling reasonably comfortable about himself, that is, he is reasonably secure and adequate. "He feels right toward other people, he is interested in them, he is able to have friendships that are satisfying and lasting, he takes responsibility for his neighbors and can feel part of a group," said Dr.

The mentally healthy person does something about his problems as they arise, he is able to think about them, makes his own decisions and sets reasonable goals for himself. "We're not doing too good: a job in mental health in Canada said Dr. Laycock.

"'There are as many beds for patients in the mental hospitals of Canada as in all the general hospitals put together, Also, of the children born this year, if the present trends continue, one out of 12 will some time in his life need care in a mental hospital." Dr. Laycock felt that the problem should be attacked on three fronts, by building, maintaining and repairing mental health. Concerning building mental health, he said that psychologists say that most emotional problems have their roots in an individual's childhood, so that "we need a program of parent education, a program of good mental health practices in the schools because school affects the child, and adequate facilities for the characterbuilding agencies in the community the churches, scouts and guides, recreational facilities, etc." this maintaining involved mental adequate child guidance clinic services to help children in trouble, mental health clinics to the adults that have emotional problems, adequate child and family welfare services, a definIte program to help older citizens to maintain their mental health and adequate classes for mentally retarded children. Repairing mental health means adequate accommodation for mental patients in mental hospitals without overcrowding, an adequate program of volunteer visiting to mental hospitals where volunteers for mental health is needed to mental illness, said Dr. Samuel R.

Definitely. Bitterly one young woman their troubles. Homesick, everybody is homesick, where they were before coming to glad to see them: "We got a warm come and say 'We don't want you Nobody gives us jobs." The young woman: "When the man from the Canadian government talked to us in Vienna, he said we would have jobs waiting for us and we would make more than $35 a week. I went to a small hotel in Kingston and the woman said she would give one man and me $100 a month and nothing for overtime. Another place offered to pay me 25 cents an hour." There was 110 doubt about it, the refugees interviewed were disappointed, bitterly, and they made no bones about it.

Another young man said that he had been in the "Russian sector" and he had been offered a better job than he was this week in Kingston. "We have no job," he said.

We want to work but nobody wants us. We are afraid." Another: "When we got to Toronto a man came and took our measurements and said we would get some clothes.

I have no clothes. I have no shirts, no pyjamas and I have no socks. How can I work with no clothes?" Asked if there was nothing in Kingston that pleased the refugees, the young woman said that the food at the nurses' residence was very good but that "it's not like at home." Snowless Christmas Season Helped Speed Express Service Don't sulk over that snowless Christmas, it did have one advantage. Since city streets were virtually bare having had merely a sprinkling of snow flurries over the holidays the pick up and delivery of express parcels was carried out promptly and efficiently, it was reported by both CPR and CNR express offices. "It went very well with us due to the break in the said A.

F. Skinner, manager of the CPR express office at 180 Wellington street. He recalled from past experience, which goes back to 1916, that tardiness in delivery and shipment of parcels had 1 often been the result of traffic tie-ups and late arrival of trains due to unfavorable weather. Mr. Skinner said that the volume of business this Christmas was "at a par" with last year's.

All calls received over the telephone, he related, were picked up and sent out the same day. Likewise all goods received on the morning trains were delivered the same day, although this obliged expressmen to deliver up till 10 o'clock at night, in some cases. Apparently people sent out their parcels earlier this year. The rush started around Dec. 14 and by Dec.

21 it had subsided back to normal. However, Mr. Skinner said, the CPR express office did receive some calls from people who wanted to know what was the "latest possible date" on which parcels could be shipped. "It seemed as though everyone wanted their parcels to arrive Christmas Day," said the CPR manager. "They didn't make any allowance for congestion." At the CNR express office, 115 Princess street, J.

M. Cornfield, the manager, announced "people seem to have shipped earlier this year, there being no congestion as in other years." And would you believe it, they not only got them out earlier, but they saw to it that they were well wrapped, tied and addressed. Parcels were shipped out of the express office within 12 hours and they were delivered with 24 hours. Mr. Cornfield said that one of the reasons the express traffic flowed so smoothly was the result of diverting parcels around Toronto rather than transferring them from the train at that point.

appears that in addition handling their own parcels the express offices in Toronto had to transfer ones going, say from Hamilton to Kingston, from one train to another. The result was that many parcels were delayed, waylaid, or lost. This year both the CPR and CNR express agents here report few incidents of missing parcels. In fact one said "the claims are almost nill." Similar claims for delivery of damaged parcels were also down. All in all, thanks to the weather, express parcels reached their destination in time for Christmas.
