'Teaching Troubled Child' Gives Answer
to Dealing with Emotional Learning Problems

Every year 500,000 children who
enter school prove emotionally un-
able to learn or adjust in the usual
public school classroom.
What can be done to teach these
The first book-length report on a
new answer that one community
has found successful will be pub-
lished Sept. 13 by the Free Press,
a division of the Macmillan Co.
"Teaching the Troubled Child,"
by George T. Donahue and Sol
Nichtern, is the story of a program
for teaching disturbed children
started in Elmont, N.Y., in 1959.
The program is a local answer to
a nationwide problem, an answer
now being adopted elsewhere, and
one which can be used by most
American communities.
All communities are faced with
the question: How are we to teach
the troubled child? Until recently
the public school has not been con
sidered the answer. Separate sys-


tems, Often with residential care,
are the rule. Their cost is high.
They often fail or are slow to re-
turn students to the regular school
Elmont questioned these prevail-
ing views and practices. The au-
BLED CHILD," George T. Donahue,
an deucator, and Sol Nichtern, a
child psychiatrist, took part in this
re-examination and in carrying out
the new approach that resulted.

Thoughts on a Cup of Tea


(Copyright, 1965, JTA, Inc.)

What does one do to keep cool?
In Boston, around 1776, when
things got hot with the British, the
Americans staged a tea party. This
heated things up a bit more for a
while, but the eventual result was
a cooling off.
A glass of warm tea, a glezele
varums as our parents used to call
it, acts the same way. At first, you
are warmer, but then you cool off.
Coffee is good in the mornings
to wake you up, but it does not
bear repetition so well. But one
must know how to drink it in the
mass style. Our parents used to be
able to down a whole kettle of tea
with one piece of sugar.
The English are great tea-
drinkers. The painter, Sir Joshua
Reynolds, admonished Dr. John-
son: "You have already taken 11
cups of tea." "I didn't count the
number of glasses of wine you
have taken," replied Dr. John-
son, "why should you count how
many cups of tea I have drunk"
The Germans drink beer. Beer
makes one blustery and arrogant.
The tea drinking English made the
whole world' their empire and
English virtually a universal lan-
guage. Even the colonies which re-
belled against English rule had
some fondness for the English; but
the. Germans were a complete
washout with the few colonies they
acquired. Beer stimulates the gros-
ser instincts and dulls the sensi-
bilities, while tea makes one more
meditative, and gently spurs cer-
ebral activity.
It was the generation of Jews
who were tea drinkers who laid
the foundations of the Jewish
state — Weizmann, Motzkin,
Schmaryahu Levin, Ben-Gurion-
all were tea drinkers.
Once, during the British man-
date days, Weizmann was show-
ing a. visiting E n gli s hm a n
through his laboratory at Reho-
voth. This man, Weizmann said,
is engaged in research on pro-
teins, and that man is studying
the anatomical structure of
molecules of hydrochloric acid.

Then he came across a mean
heating some water. "Here," said
Weizmann, "is a man doing the
most constructive scientific work
—he is boiling a pot of tea."
There is another tea anecdote
told in connection with Weizmann.
Once, at Tiptoe Inn, where Zion-
ists were wont to gather, Weiz-
mann pointed to a man at a
neighboring table. "Er ist a Vilna
soicher. Er mischt, aber legt nit
arein." (He is a financier from
Vilna. He manipulates, but does
not put anything in.) The man had
been stirring his glass of tea with-
out putting any sugar in.
An Israeli paper recently noted
that the sons are departing from
the ways of the fathers. The
younger generation seems to take
to drinking of milk. And also soda
drinks or Mitz are popular. There
is an Israeli witticism that Moses
made water come out of the rock,
while some Israeli today—the Mitz
manufacturers are making rocks
(jewels) come out of water.
In ancient Israel, wine was a
common drink. The prophets look-
ed forward to every man living
peacefully in his vineyard. Indeed,
wine probably had something to do
with the religious genius of Israel.
You make kiddush, you sanctify
with wine. Wine helps you feel a
bit holy—it gives you that expan-
sive feeling. This raises a problem.
Can we expect the religious genius
of Israel to flourish on soda water?
How holy can you get making
kiddush on any kind of pop?
Moderately taken, , wine also
seems propitious to health. Dr.
Cyrus Adler stated that Sir Moses
Montefiore, who lived past the
century mark, for the last 20 years
of his life lived on a diet of wine
and biscuit.
