MIRROR OF YOUR MIND Do intelligent people commit suicide? Answer: Suicide is an emotionally-induced act and has little to do with intelligence. The New England Journal of Medicine recently reported that suicide rales among physicians, dentists and lawyers run three times higher than among whiitM-ollar workers. The suicide factor appeared to be a predisposition toward de- pjession, brought on by the need of intelligent professional men to oontrol emotional expression, and Ibeir prolonged deferral of gratification. Should parents discourage teen-age fuds?

In a way this is healthy for most young people. It helps them get through a difficult period when their minds and bodies are undergoing drastic changes, and their dependence on parental guidance is beginning to wane. The only danger lies in excessive conformity, which is a symptom of indecision and insecurity in adulthood. Most teen-agers tend to be fad addicts because of their compulsive need to conform with (£} 1963. Kln« l-'euiuret, Synd., Inc.) Can drunks IK- conditioned to abstinence? Answer: Canadian doctors are working on a new "scare" cure for alcoholism. As reported in Science News Letter, the alcoholic is given a few sips of his favorite liquor, followed immediately hy a drug that paralyzes breathing from GO to iX) seconds. The combined experience is so terrifying that the alcoholic is convinced he is dying. Six of 12 alcoholics stopped drinking altogether after the first treatment; they simply did not want to touch alcohol again. Improvements in a community can be accomplished by a united effort, Dr. James Akins, community consultant of the Department of Community Development Service of Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, told members of the Wood River Woman's Club Tuesday. Speaking on the dub project of the year, "Community Achievement," Dr. Akins pointed out a club or organization can achieve small gains in improvements, etc., working as an individual unit. However by coordinating the efforts of several such groups a great deal more can be accomplished and larger projects can be undertaken. Dr. Akins read and explained the rules of the community achievement contest, co-sponsored by the Sears Roebuck Foundation and the Federation of Woman's Clubs. The club is participating in the contest. A contribution of $500 was voted to the building fund of the Wood River Social Planning Council, to help finance the construction of an addition to the Roundhouse recreation center and improvements to the existing structure. Assistance in the recreation center building program has been chosen as one of the club's major projects in the community achievement program, Mrs. Jerry Trattler, president, said. Plans were made to sponsor a teen-uge dancing party at the Roundhouse as an early fall project. Proceeds of the affair will be in benefit of the building fund. Mrs. Louis Camp is chairman of dance arrangements. A delegation from the club will attend the Friday state conference in Mt. Vernon where special guests will be the state 'officers who are visiting clubs throughout the state in the Federation of Woman's Clubs annual caravan. Mrs. Trattler, state chairman of Boys Town of Illinois is traveling with the touring group. Mrs. Edward Hartwig, chairman, announced the American Home Department is sponsoring a trip to Shaw's Gardens Oct. 9. The meeting, which opened the fall season of the club, was held in the Wood River Public Library. Bailey Williams, retailing consultant of SIU was also a guest of the meeting and explained the area survey of retail business, places and consumer's buying, to be conducted Sept. 27. The club will assist with the survey. A play review will be presented by Mrs. R. J. Richardson Jr. of St. Louis as the program feature at the Oct. 8 meeting in the library. Mrs. Gilbert Helmkamp is program chairman. Members of the Wood River Garden Club, women teachers of Wood River schools, and the wives of Wood River ministers will be special guests. Mrs. James Holcomb is chairman of the hostess committee. WORD-A-DAY By BACH /BE CAREFUL OR / HE'LL pur on \HI6 WAR flAINT'J contentious GIVEN TO, Oft CAUSING STRIFE OR DI6PUT£6> QUARRELSOME? A*, A CONTENTIOUS PEftfON 9-IZ MISS SWEETMAN Ann Landers MISS BERNHARDT MISS BARTEE Proposal Is a Bad Idea, ESP Notwithstanding DEAR ANN: I have read a great deal about ESP (Extrasensory perception) and I am sure I have it. Frequently I know a telephone is going to ring several seconds ^'before it actually 'does. Sometimes, ji'when the phone rings I know who Jis on the line. I've ' had hunches about ters the day $ before I receive them. I often r° know precisely how certain peo- Ann Landers, pie will finish a sentence even though they have said only three or four words. This uncanny, ability has been with me for a long time. In school I always seemed to know when I was going to "be called on to recite. I was also able to read a certain boy's.mind, (I quit going with him.) Now I have a strong feeling that a certain young man who is casual about me would make the best husband in the world. Should I tell him?—MISS L. DEAR MISS L.: I have only five senses and I'm not so sure about them, so please don't ask me to advise a girl who can read a boy's mind. It is not very good sense (even taking ESP into account) to suggest marriage to a young man who is casual about you. Forget it. For Next Week DEAR READERS: Here is an open confidential to the 4,578 people who wrote to tell me that "Honor Your Father and Mother" is the Fourth Commandment and not the Fifth Commandment, as I said in a recent column. One reader even suggested that I accept 10 lashes with the tassels of an old prayer shawl. There are various versions of the scriptures and the Commandments appear in different order according to which version of the Bible you're reading. The Bible which I read says "Honor Your Father and Mother" is the Fifth Commandment and I accept the apologies of all of you. * * * * DEAR ANN: I have been camp counselor and administrator in church camps for Juniors (boys between 9 and 12 years of age) for more than 10 years. Almost without exception whenever you see a homesick child who rebels against camp discipline he is reacting to overly protective parents. I remember one mother in particular who returned to the camp gate after three heartrending farewells—using first one excuse, and then another. She was deeply hurt because her son didn't hang on to her skirt. The father of the boy finally led the sobbing woman away assuring her that the boy really did love her. Children who are the problems at camp are invariably the ones who have been pampered at home. Their mothers try to prolong their infancy. Only once did I see a father who was guilty of this. I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to work with Vincent who phoned his ma to "come and get him." Perhaps I could have changed the course of his life. PENTWATER, MICH. DEAR PENTWATER: Thanks for a fine letter. I hope Vincent's ma sees it. * * * * DEAR ANN: My daughter married a man I can't tolerate. He has an irritating voice and dramatizes every trivial incident until I could scream. I try not to be critical of him because I don't want to make my daughter unhappy, but it's impossible to be on guard every moment. My daughter becomes furious when I utter even one word of complaint against him. I do not ask them to visit me. They come because they want to. What can I do to cure myseli of this horrible feeling of revulsion against my daughter's husband? I despise myself for not being able to handle the situation better but I loathe the man and it shows.—OUTLAW IN-LAW DEAR OUTLAW: Suggest to your daughter that she arrange her visit for the most part when she can come alone. The lesi you see of her husband the better for all of you. © Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Elementary School Menus Alton MONDAY: Barbecued pork, buttered peas, cabbage salad, buttered bread, milk, wnite grapes or oatmeal cookie.
