Ann Landers She and Her Daughter Need Outside Help at Once DEAR ANN LANDERS: Today my 12-year-old daughter took 30 cents out of my purse. I saw her slip the money into her shoe. She didn't realize I was behind her. I asked her twice to give the money back but she insisted she didn't have it. When I started to search my purse she knew she wns trapped and finally admitted it.. Later that day she cut her thumb with a butcher knife to get sym- AnnLanden. pathy. I sent her to her room without dinner. I love my daughter very much and hate to see her go astray. Is this only the beginning? She has an adequate allowance and certainly is ru>t under-privileged, but she's always in debt to her girl friends. What shall I do with her? Y ZEE DEAR Y ZEE: I urge you to seek outside help at once. * Children who take things usually have enormous feelings of insecurity and frustration. Your daughter cut herself not because she wanted pity but because she felt the need to punish herself. Ask your family doctor to recommend a specialist. Part of your daughter's problem is her relationship with her mother. * * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a girl, 15, who read with interest the letter from the woman who was so superstitious. It reminded me of how I overcame a superstition that had a terrible hold over me. I'd like to pass along my "cure" to all people who are slaves to illogical foolishness. I used to put a certain clip in my hair at night, and I always put it in backwards. If something went wrong the next day, I'd set my hair entirety different and not use that clip at all. If things turned out all right, I'd keep setting my hair the same way. After a while I felt like a nut. I told my girl friend about it. She suggested I buy all new hair clips, throw out the old ones and tell myself that whatever is going to happen will happen. I took her advice, and the very next day, a boy I'd been crazy about for months asked me for a date. Now I'm free of all superstitions. I just tell myself that whatever is going to happen will happen. And do you know, Ann — that's exactly the way it is! M.R.O. * * * * DEAR ANN LAKDKR8: 1 am a girl, 15, who can't ask anyone else about this because I don't want them to know I'm so dumb along these lines. I'll bet plenty of teenagers would like the answer, too, but they haven't got the nerve to ask anybody. When a girl is brought home from a date and she is stand- You're the Doctor By Joseph D. Womertng, M. D, ing at the front door with the boy, what should she do? Should she wait till the boy asks If he can kips her, or should she just kiss him automatically? Please answer before next Saturday night. I've got to know. "^™* BOOTSIE. DEAR BOOTSIE: A girl should never kiss a boy "automatically." Neither should she dilly-dally on the porch waiting for him to make th«? move. Say goodnight and extend your hand—and as the girl said in the letter above— "whatever is going to happen will happen." * * * * CONFIDENTIALLY TO INEXPERIENCED: Next time tell him you'd rather have him WALK you home. Just say you're too tired to get into a taxi with him. * * * • To learn how to keep your boy friend in line without losing him, send for ANN. LANDERS' booklet, "Necking and Petting—And How Far To Go," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin, and a large, self- addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope." (© I960, Field Enterprises, Inc.) Womau'sSociety Luncheon in Baptist Church Mrs. Orrin Anderson spoko on "Present Day Conditions" as a devotional topic before members of the Woman's Mission Society of First Baptist Church Thursday. The group met at noon in the church for « potluck luncheon. Following the devotional, Mrs. Anderson told the group of historical places which she and her family visited recently in Philadelphia. Mrs. Daniel Lutes, Mrs. A. W. Judd and Mrs. Roy Blair gave reports on their attendance at the "House Partv" on June 26 through 28 at MacMurray College in Jacksonville. The event is the annual meeting of the Baptist Woman's Mission Society of Illinois. Circles of the society have been re-arranged, and an announcement was made to members during the meeting as to their new circles. Circle leaders were announced last month. Mrs. Pete Kanyo, Mrs. C. Hassell Craft, Mrs. Carl Nickens andMrs. Blairwere chairmen of the lunclieon. Tables were centered with arrangements of roses. Visit* Parent t En route from Los Alamos, N. M., to New York, Robert W. Cockrell spent the past few days visiting his parent*, Dr. and Mrs. Robert E. Cockrell at 1107 Washington Ave. MAN MADE MADNESS tt Is a fact that a disease Id more likely to be cured or controlled if it first can be artificially created In a laboratory. For example sulfanilamide was first discovered to be ft powerful germ-killer because It was found to protect mice against infections with deadly streptococcus germs. The test was simple. If you injected virulent streptococci into the abdominal cavity of mice, they died. If you fed these mice some sulfanilamide first and then Injected the strepticocci, most of them lived. The availability of suitable experimental animals (mice), and an experimental method of creating a disease (Streptococcal p e r 11 o n Itls) made possible the discovery of sulfanilamide. For medic"! progress, It meant a giant step forward. When it came to mental illness, however, no laboratory animal existed for suitable investigations. How, for Instance, can you determine that a guinea pig is insane or that a rabbit is paranoid? Until recently, insanity could not be induced even in human volunteers. No way was known of creating artificial insanity in man that in any way reasonable imitated the natural occurring disease. For this reason, research in insanity has faltered. New Discoveries Recently, however, the whole field of mental illness has been thrown wide open to researchers because of the discovery of a variety of chemicals known as hallucinogens or psychoto- gens. These compounds derive their names from the fact that they can induce hallucinations, both auditory and visual, as vivid as those distorting the mind of the craziest schizophrenic. Many psychiatrists feel that the mental and emotional disturbances induced by hallucinogen drugs are similar, if not identical, to those found in the insane. No other drugs have come closer to this in causing insanity or psychosis. Some hallucinogens are found in nature in the extract of plants. Principally among these are psilocybin (the active principle of Mexican hallucinogenic mushroom) and mescaline (loco weed). More important, however, than these is a synthetic chemical, LSD, whose full name is lysergic acid diethylamide. MISS WELCH Mi** Welch Makes Plans To Marry Mr. and Mrs. Levi Welch of Worden are announcing the engagement of their daughter, Vera Jean, to Raymond Goode, son of Mr. and Mrs. Irvln Goode of Hartford. Miss Welch is a 1956 graduate of Worden High School. Her fiance was graduated in 1954 from East Alton -Wood River Community High School. They are both employed by Shell Oil Refinery, Roxana. Miss Holbeck Is Honored At Shoiver Miss Carolyn Holbeck, who will marry Walter M. Sehramm Aug. 28 in Hamden. Conn., was honored at a miscellaneous shower given by her aunt, Mrs. Wayne Helmentoler, Wednesday evening at Westerner Ciub Grounds. Mrs. Kmmctt Green and another aunt of Miss Holbe<% Mrs. Gene Hasten and daughter, Linda, assisted at the shower. About 36 guests were seated at tables decorated with bud vases. The gift table was covered with a lace table cloth made by Miss Hoi heck's great- grandmother and centered wirh a bouquet of out flowers. Tt is this one that has been most successful in causing "mental disease" In volunteer subjects, and, indeed, has been tried in the treatment of schizophrenia, Itself. It has also proved useful in some of the milder forms of mental disease. In England, for example, Or. Margot Cutner has been giving LSD to some patients to help makepsychoanalysls smoother, particularly where the patient has difficulty in communicating easily with his psychiatric. According to Dr. Cutner, I*SD produces a state in which the higher function* of the brain are curbed and normally unconscious contents emerge more easily into consciousness. Without the aid of LSD, the deeper thoughts and ideas bur* led in a man's mind might never be elicited or might come forth only after years of conventional psychoanalysis. But, with the LSD given under hospital supervision, psychoanalysis proceeds more easily and the patient may be more quickly helped. Similar Compound More important than the Immediate results are the insights which LSD and similar compounds have provided physicians into the deepest working of many mental and physical functions. LSD, for example, Is chemically related to another compound, serotonin, which, in turn, is related to adrenalin. And adrenalin is a normal secretion of the adrenal glands. In view of these findings, it is entirely possible that some cases of so-called mental disease may be due to disturbances of adrenal glandular function rather than brain disease. In some cases—and this has already been proven—the basic disorder in psychosis may be glandular. Furthermore, work with LSD and similar compounds have opened up new avenu°s of therapy. Some of the newer anti-depressant drugs, for example, were developed after the relationship between LSD and serotonin was demonstrated. Many of these medicines are already available for prescription use. In a real sense, doctors, today, have a chemical that can produce temporary insanity in man. We are starting a new era in understanding, and, perhaps, preventing mental disease. © I960 N. Y. Herald Tribune. Inc.

Bdwy. Dial HO Pat Formula Not Way To Gauge Girl As Wife By ROTH MtUJCTT A matrimonial rating sheet worked out by a university professor by which young men are supposed to be able to tin whether a girl will make a good wife goes like this: • Physical attractiveness: 40 per cent. • Cooking ability: 15 per cent. • Skill with money: 15 per cent. • Sewing ability: 5 per cent. • Health: 15 per cent. • Similarity of interests with yours: 10 per cent. The professor's list is good as far as ; it goes, but he seems to have left off a few Important points. He doesn't mention the ability to get and hold a Job. And yet being able to put hubby through college, or help bring home the bacon while he gets a start in business, or help to pay for a home is something a lot of young wives are expected to do these days. He doesn't say a word about a good disposition. And yet no girl ia a bargain as a wife unless she is easy to get along with day after day. He doesn't give a single point for a girl's being liked by her own sex. And yet a wife who can't get along with other women can certainly throw a wrench into a man's dream of success. He doesn't say anything about the necessity for a girl's being energetic and dependable. And yet a great many of the letters I get from fed-up husbands claim their wives are so lazy that they shirk their homemaking job to the point where a man's home isn't his castle but a cluttered, untidy dump. Furthermore, every man has his own Idea of his dream girl and would have a few important "musts" of his own to add to any ready-made list. (All rights reserved, Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) The Mature Parent Apparent Sulkiness Can Be Cover-Up for Deep Feelings By MU8 Ml KIEL LAWRENCE In a psychoanalytic session a patient accused herself of having been a very "sulky" child. "When do you first remember yourself as 'sulky'?" her doctor asked. "There's a picture of me in the family album taken when 1 was five years old," the patient said. "I'm silting on a pony in the picture. We'd gone to the park and I wanted to watch some children sailing boats instead of taking the pony ride. But mama had the man put me on the pony anyway. That's when Papa took the picture. "Whenever I see it in the album, it gives me a funny feeling. There I am in my white dress, my face set so sullen and sulky under my new spring hat. I can still hear mama saying, 'Can't you even smile lor your picture, Miss Sulks?' " "Had you ever ridden a pony before?" the doctor said. "No," said the patient. "I'd never even seen one." "Then perhaps," said the doctor, "you weren't being sulky at 'all but just frightened of riding the pony." The patient stared at him—and burst into tears. "How do you know that?" she wept. "You're right, you're right. I was frightened. I was terribly frightened of the pony. But I knew nobody would listen if I said so. Nobody would listen ..." I do not report this segment of a psychoanalytic session to suggest that all sullen children are scared of pony rides. I report it to suggest that a chronically sullen child is one who has given up all hope of our interest in his feelings. And like the patient, the child is no longer aware that he feels fear, hurt or anger but accepts our misjudgment of all his protesting feelings as ugly "sulkiness." This is why we get no instant results from asking a chronically sullen child to tell us if he's hurt, scared or angry. Lake us, he lumps all these different feelings under the heading of "sulkiness." But if we persist in suggesting that we may have scared, hurt or angered him, he can begin to believe in the existence of these feelings in him — and our acceptance of them. He can recover hope of our interest in them. And one happy day, instead o( retreating into the vague, unexpressed protest of sulkiness, he may be able to burst into tears and say, "You hurt me" or "I'm scared" or "You made me very mad." Then we're done with his sulkiness. Fashion Facts Your swimsuit, no matter what it's made of, should be washed out in warm, soapy water after every wearing. Sed water and the chlorine from pools both are hard on swimsuits. JULY ONLY DRY OLEANINQ SPECIAL BLANKETS 99 Start Right, Don't Eat Poor Breakfast WASHINGTON (AP)-Eating a good breakfast is • good start for the day. The Agriculture Department' says studies have shown that workers who tuck away a good meal before work get more done than those who skip breakfast, or eat a poor one. As the morning goes on, the hungry ones grow less efficient. After lunch they do better for a while, then they slow up again. The department says what is true for these workers is just as true for their wives, weighrwatchers, teen-age girls and everyone else. A doughnuts -and- coffee breakfast flunks the test of what department experts consider a good meal. A fruit juice-and-coffee breakfast also get the brush off from the experts. The one they think has a little body to it includes fruit, cereal or bread, eggs with meat, such as bacon, sausage, hash or fish and coffee. Tomorroiv's Dinner Barbecued corned beef dinner, Irish soda bread or fresh rye bread, butter or margarine, apple pie with ice cream, coffee, tea, milk.
