Mental Illness

Facilities for treatment of men-
tal illness in this city, which.has-
a very high rate of such illness,
will be expanded by Mount Zion
Hospital and Medical Center.
The shortage of such fa'cilities
will be eased by the creation of
a new 20-bed psychiatric in-
patient unit in the hospital-cen-
ter, using space vacated through
other changes in the institu-
tion's program. Another step
will be the transfer of the psy-
chiatric out-patient department
from its present crammed .quar-
ters to the second floor of the
new out-patient building.
Dr. Cyrus R. Friedman, chief
of psychiatry, explained that the
in-patient unit will be located in
the main hospital to allow much
greater contact between the *psy-
chiatric and other branches of
treatment at the hospital-center.
It will also stimulate the patient
to feel he is not isolated from
the mainstream of hospital. ac-
The existing out-patient clinic
is so short of space that patients
must wait as long as five months
for the start of treatment. Fa-
cilities in the new building will
double the space and mean
greatly expanded service at the
clinic, he said.
Funds for the new facilities
will come from the San Fran-
cisco . Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion's capital funds campaign.

Anti,Semitic Article

ROME, (JTA) — The execu-

nouncing the Italian Orbis News
Agency for an anti-Semitic ar-
