By MAI, BOYLE New York-Wj-People who com plain of having a bad memor often . merely are running awa from life. . \. This is the conclusion of D: ' Bruno Furst, who has taught 25, 000 people to remember better. "With manj* people, forgettin it a .kind of escapism," .he sail ·"If they are satisfied in 'life, t they are discontented with thei marriage, they' want to "forge certain things. And this'decrease their power* pi memory gener ·tlly."' Dr. Furst. is a specialist, in put ting muscles back on the memor power of people who want to re 'member better. "Most., intelligent people hav the wrong conception of memory, he said. "They speak of a gooc memory or a bad memory. Ther is no' such thing. Every, person' memory' is good in certain direc .tions .and. poor in others. Like a muscle 'it can be improved proper exercise." ' . Dr. Furst, a former crimina lawyer forced -to flee Germany b; the Nazi regime, recalls he hail trouble "with wnat is called a bad memory when I was a studen ; myself." . "That's why -J went into this work. Today I have no trouble "remembering anything I wish.' One of his own mental gymnastic feats' is to glance through a deck of cards a,nd then repeat "them aloud in order. He believes practically anyone who will train his mind can do the Fame thin u . "William James, the psychologist, once said' that people don't use prie 'tenth o'f their real brain power, 1 ' he remarked. "I think he was correct." ''i? system he developed is now laught at several universities, in- ciuuing Yale and Brooklyn College. It is built on the principles of concentration, observation, and the use of key symbols that have a power of association with the. objects or persons to be remembered. His students range from housewives to top executives. "The most general complaint people they can't remember names'Or faces, and this embarrasses them socially or in their jobs," he said. "But there is no reason why you cannot meet 30 complete strangers at a party and aftenvard recall them accurately by name and face." . As a matter of fact, that is one of the graduation tests for his student:: after completing his 10-week course. Dr. Furst, who has a formidable brow, has developed his own memory ability to the point where he has trouble finding anyone' to Join him Ip playing bridge, one of his' -hobbies. He remembers the cards'too'well. The 61-year-old mcmorj expert also is a professional graphologist, or handwriting analyst, btar chess player, sleight-of-hand r.rtist, nnd hynotist. By mental concentration he can increase or slow the tempo of his own heart beat. One of hit personal brain exercises is to concentrate his attention for.six minutes on the bare head of a pin. Think that is easy? Try it. The. average man can't stare that long at a pretty pin-up picture without letting his mind wander. -^ ,"The-American housewife needs DOROTHY DIX -CONTINUED FlIOM PAGI TOUl baby-sitter of me, but rather that they are according me a place as a loved member of the family.
