2 ordered by state to end therapy Northern Arizona Bureau FLAGSTAFF - The State Board of Medical Examiners has ordered two Flagstaff psychiatrists to discontinue the use of "rage reduction therapy". Paul R. Boykin, Phoenix, state board director, said Dr. Norman D. Duley and Dr. Guy L. Smyth had been told to discontinue their practice of the therapy "until further ordered by the board." An investigation by the board of Dr. Duley and Dr. Smyth, who operate Flagstaff Psychiatric Center, Ltd., was initiated after an "information" was filed June 2. The information was in the nature of a request for an investigation from Flagstaff general practitioner, Dr. George H. Yard, on behalf of the Coconino County Medical Society. The investigation was precipitated, Boykin said, by the death by cardiovascular collapse of Mrs. Gene (Margretta) Butler on May 30 at Flagstaff Community Hospital following treatment by rage reduction therapy" by Dr. Duley and others, including her husband. The therapy reportedly employs physical and mental provocation by a group with the intent of drawing an emotional response from the patient. Boykin said the order to discontinue the use of such therapy applied only to Drs. Duley and Smyth, not to other psychiatrists in the state. The board is expected to discuss its investigation at its quarterly meeting in Scottsdale July 7-12, though Boykin pointed out, "There is no way I can tell how long the investigation will take." Dr. Duley and Dr. Smyth, along with 10 others, have been named as defendants in a $1.2 million damage suit filed by Flagstaff truck driver Jacob R. Lucero who claimed to have been beaten during"rage reduction therapy" for a back injury. The trial has been scheduled for Oct. 26 in Coconino County Superior Court. Lucero initially was treated by Dr. Yard. Dr. Duley, in a deposition taken for the Lucero case, denied Lucero has been beaten. He stated that, in the 30 or 40 times Lucero was lifted, then let down again, he had made no overt display of his discomfort. Legal Aid challenges new election laws More about Continued from Page 31 before coming to Arizona more than a year ago. The Vasquases, the Legal Aid suit stated, are typical of a large class of citizens of Spanish-American descent (the Vasqueses are U.S.-born) who are Intimidated or refused the right to vote by the law. Considering the readily available Spanish language communication media in the Phoenix area, the suit pointed REPUBLIC BUUDOG Phoenix, Thnrs., Jnne 18,1970 The Arizona Republic $7 • out, persons who speak and read only that language have adequate means to acquaint themselves with political issues and candidates. "There is no rational basis or compelling state interest," Levine stated in the complaint, "for the requirement of literacy in the English language." The statute, the suit added, "invokes an irrational discrimination against an identifiable class by use of the literacy in English voter qualification." "Such discrimination," the suit continued, "which deprives persons of the fundamental right of suffrage guaranteed by the Constitution, cannot stand." A similar challenge to the literacy test statute, based more heavily on the contention that it violates the 1964 Civil Rights Act, was filed last week in federal court under the sponsorship of the Arizona Democratic Party.
