Millions of dollars of perishable
farm products are being lost
daily and thousands of workers
in a wide range of industries have
been idled as effects of the strike
against four major railroads con-
tinue to mount.
In California alone, lettuce, cit-
rus, melon and tomato growers
estimate they are losing about
$2.5 million worth of crops daily
and in some cases overripe let-
tuce is being plowed under.

Violent TV hurts kids

Preschool kids who watch tele-
vision are affected by the violence
they see. And researchers insist
that programs with constructive
social themes can influence good,
cooperative behavior.
A federally sponsored study by
two Pennsylvania State Univer-
sity human development profes-
sors, also acknowledges the use-
ful role television can play in so-
cial development.
"There are behavorial effects
associated with viewing vio-
lence," Drs. Aletha Stein and
Lynette Friedrich said concern-
ing reactions of 97 four- and five-
year-olds in nursery school play
situations and at home. "Such
viewing has an impact not only
on aggressive behavior but also
on self-control.
"On the other hand programs
which stress themes of coopera-
tion, persistence in the face-of
difficulty, tolerance of frustration

and delay, and verbalization of
feelings can be understood by
very small children and may al-

Children in the study, support-
ed by a grant from the National
Institute of Mental Health, were
split into three groups. One
watched programs like Batman
and Superman w h i c h were
termed aggressive, others viewed
pro-social programs and the
third saw child-oriented films
considered neutral.
"The clearest effect of tele-
vision viewing appeared on the
self-controlling behaviors," the
reports said.
"Children exposed to the pro-
social programs, and particular-
ly those with above average
IQs, were more apt to obey rules,
tolerate delays and persist at
tasks than children who watched
aggressive programs.
"Cartoons and their attending
violence made children already

relatively high in aggression even
more so. At the same time, self-
controlling behavior, particular-
ly tolerance for minor frustra-
tions, declined in all children ex-
posed to these programs.
"Those in the neutral group
generally fell between the two
The study also disclosed that
pre-schoolers who came from
low-income homes were greatly
and positively influenced by the
pro-social programs.
"They registered increases in-
cooperation and verbalization of
feelings," Drs. Stein and Fried-
lich observed.
The researchers, h o w e v e r,

to be an ally of the military re-
search establishment."
