"Fortunately, Dr. Sigmund Freud revolutionized the whole field of medicine when he in- troduced the concept of physi- cal illness and mental depres- sion resulting from emotional Dr. Kotkas said. "Psychiatrists are still regard- ed as head shrinkers, but our status has climbed today be- cause mental illness caused by one factor or another in our so- ciety, is definitely more com- mon."

How- ever, the treatment was never as bad as the illness; in many cases where it was required, had it not been used the pa- tient would not have recovered. Today, electrical treatment is more refined very humane and certainly life-saving." Dr. Kotkas said that people should know the symptoms ol depression, which so very often lead tragically to suicide. Peo- ple who threaten suicide are un- happy and need attention and help he said. In a question period Dr. Kot- kas said drug users who find themselves in trouble with the law are usually sending out an unconscious plea for help. They are genuinely suffering from some inner problems which they try to draw attention to through unorthodox means. "A young person seriously in- volved in drugs is usually say- ing, 'look at me, pay attention to me' and it is only when his par- ents or the law finally accedes to his demands that some prop- er steps can be taken to help him." In face to face confrontation with the patient, the psychi- atrist never allows the patient to see his response. "We can't allow the patient to think we are worried or concerned with something he has said or we lose his confidence. Sometimes even if the psychiatrist clears his throat, the patient takes that as a sign of disapproval and communication is Dr. Kotkas said. Dr. Kotkas said he would like to see more psychiatrists in practice in Lethbridge. "As we become more aware of people's needs and our social conditions become more fragmented, we'll find that most people could at. some time or other in their lives, benefit from psycliiatric help." ed for a promising competitor in piano, vocal, sirir.g or CTgan classes.

S.E., CALGARY PHONE 262-4867 A CANADIAN SCHOOL 'TWERE is an excellent chance that 1970 will go down as the year cf the pollution problem. Pollution has become the magic word spawning a flood of news stories, seminars, teach-ins and protest marclies. Two thing? about this situation might provide some cause for concern, One of them is that we may have reached the point where it is time to go slow on the publicity campaign. While there are probably some people in North America who have not heard about pollution, the chance seems rather remote. The news media have given a great deal of coverage to anyone with anything to say on the problem; there have been many well-researched programs and columns on the subject. The question is: how much of this can we take before everyone becomes thoroughly bored with the whole thing? How many of us have become conditioned to react with a shrug every time another television documentary or book on pollution comes out? Perhaps the time has come to slow down on the publicity campaign and let the groups that have been formed go quietly about their work. All three levels of government have shown some indication ihat they are at least aware of the problem. Many citizens action groups have been formed. There is no problem in the whole world outside of full-scale war that is going to keep the interest of the public lor more than a few months. Trying to convince the man on the street that pollution is just as serious as nuclear war is doomed to failure. Continued efforts in this direction will simply alien- ate those who have become concerned. The second aspect of the situation that might be cause for concern: that in spending so much time and effort on pollution of the landscape we are ignoring another very important, and related, problem pollution of our minds. Slop and think about it. How much control do we exercise over goes into our minds? How much residue from the fall-out of books and movies do we carry around with us? And how aware are we what effect this accumula- tion of situation comedies, second-rate paperbacks and third- rate movies is having on our mental processes? There are even those who suggest that much of what our children learn in school is largely irrelevant to real-life situations and becomes excess baggage in later life. The point is, we expose ourselves', knowlingly or not, to a great mass of information every day. We all live in Marshall MacLuhan's electronic global village a community in which the media pour over us a constant stream of infor- mation. Perhaps we should pay more attention to Hie purity of this stream. Maybe it too, is polluted. A moratorium on pollution publicity may not be in. order, but perhaps it is time to give the environmental control people a rest and turn our attention to the ways in which we are polluting the internal landscape.

ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 321-4095 Park Security Boosted For Summer The city parks and recreation department reports supplemen- tary patrols for parks security measures will be used again this year. The purpose of the patrols in parks is primarily to insure that these areas are available for public use and enjoyment. The regulations which will be enforced, are designed to en- sure that as many people as possible will be able to enjoy the parks. Problems in recent years have been dogs running loose and horses and motorcycles be- ing used in the parks. Owners of these are urged to co-operate with other park users by keeping dogs on a leash. Horses and motorcycles are not allowed in parks, al- though plans are presently be- ing developed to allocate areas for these activities by 1971.
