Wayne To Seek
State Financial
Aid To Expand
Increased Enrollment.
Causes Building Crisis
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Jan. 26-When the state
legislature convenes in special session
Feb. 4, one of the main items on its
agenda probably will be Wayne Uni-
versity's request for $3,000,000 state
aid.
At the present time, Wayne enrolls
10,500 sudents, 2,520 from outside De-
troit and 1,155 from outside Wayne
County. Students come from 65 of
the 83 Michigan counties and repre-
sent 174 cities and towns outside De-
troia. The University is bursting its
seams.
Dr. Preston H. scott, speech de-
partment chairman and head of the
faculty committee on state aid, says
the urgency of the financial need is
evident. Wayne's classrooms now op-
erate on a double shift and are filled
from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
An observer, strolling around
Wayne's campus can comprehend the
difficulties students run into going
from class to class. The campus is
probably unique among Michigan ed-
ucaional plants. It is a cluster of
madeover dwelling houses.

MENTAL CASES REHABILITATED:
Occupational Therapy Lab Aids Patients

By ANNETTE SHENKER I
An appealing stuffed panda, a I
sculptured bust of Abraham Lincoln,
a basket cradle and a plastic picture
frame displayed in a little-known
portion of University Hospital evi-
dence the importance of the paint
brush, the jig saw and the pottery kiln
in the rehabilitation of patients with
mental illnesses.
The amazing room in which these
objects are housed is the Occupational
Therapy laboratory of the Neuro-Psy-
chiatric Institute. They are on display
in order to interest other mental pa-
tients in similar creative attempts.
The main idea behind occupation
therapy is not merely to keep the
patient busy, according to Miss
Ruth Wisdom, occupational ther-
apist of the Institute, but to revive
his interest in living. "We like to
give the patient a hobby or interest
that he can carry with him when he
goes home," Miss Wisdom pointed
out.
The types of activities, she said, are
determined by the mental condition
of the patients themselves. For in-
stance, wood carving and metal work I
are suggested for the mental patient
who show signs of aggression so that
he may find a safe release for hisl

pent-up feelings. The tools are kept
in a locked case with a wire screen
door so that the therapist can tell,
at a glance if anything is missing. I
Schizophrenic patients, who are,
characterized by loss of contact, and
paranoids, who are subject to delus-
ions, are given clay, because this kind
of work seems to restore faith and
bring out creative ability. In addition
to modeling life-like. figures out of
clay, patients are able to make com-
plete sets of dishes because the lab-
oratory equipment includes a large,
pottery kiln. The dishes are used for
patients' parties and afternoon teas.
Color is an important factor in
these activities, Miss Wisdom said.
If the patient is disturbed, it is bet-
ter for him to work with dull
shades, while depressive patients
are encouraged to use the brighter
colors. Miss Wisdom peinted out
that the patient's selection of color
and designs to be used in finger;
paintings is studied by the doctors
who are diagnosing his condition.
Because when patients first enter
the Insitute they care little about
their personal appearance, a laundry
is maintained for use as one of the
therapies. Miss Wisdom tries to re-
build a feeling of personal pride and
tidiness. Men are encouraged to sew
on buttons and to wash and iron their
shirts. Some of the women make their
own clothes with dress goods sup-
plied by the hospital.
The music room, outfitted wih a
piano and phonograph records, serves
as a center for group singing. Ballads
and folk music are favorites and some
popular songs are introduced.
About 35 patients, ranging in age
from 16 to 80, use the occupaional
therapy lab. Mixed groups of con-

valescent patients work there together
Saturday mornings and parties are
given for the patients every other Fri-
day evening.
There is a marked difference be-
tween the reaction of mental pa-
tients at the Institute parties and
that of normal individuals, Miss
Wisdom said. Introduction of mixer
games is essential because the group
tends to split up with the males on
one side of the room and the fe-
males on the other. Charades, bingo
and the grand march are very pop- .
ular and there is always dancing
and refreshments.
A complete gymnasium has been
built in the Neuro-Pschiatric Insti-
tute for the use of the patients. The
usual gym equipment is supplied and
the patients spend a part of each
day there under the supervision of a
recreational therapist.
The Institute was' the first psychi-
atric unit to be associated with a Uni-
versity in the United States.

"Full production under the 48-hour
r longer schedule and on the shift
arrangements in effect before the
strike will be resumed as rapidly as
possible," according to a company
statement.
An estimated $30,000 weekly pay
roll has been lost since the strike be-
gan Nov. 8, when negotiations broke
down.

AUNT RUTH'S LETTER:
Censor Bdelleves Nipponese
Youth Can Revitalize Nation

CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING

"When the young Japanese, who
lave been the first ones to show evi-
fence of clear thinking and to be-
,ome aware of their situation, are
given the opportunity to run the$
Jountry, they will be able to pull Japan7
gut of the mire," Lt. George A. Chap-f
man of the Counter Intelligence
Service, Civil Censorship Department
at Osaka, said in a letter recently1
received by Mrs. Ruth Buchanan, of
vhe University Museum.!
One of the 220U servicemen to'
whom "Aunt Ruth" has written since
before Pearl Harbor, Lt. Chapman
received the greater part df his edu-
cation in Japan. He attended the Jap-
anese Language school at the Univer-
Uity in 1944 under the Army Special-
0zed Training Program, receiving
his commission the same year. The
impressions that he has sent to Aunt
Ruth were gathered while he was per-{
forming his duties as censor of Japa-
nese civilian mail.
Nation Lacks Leadership
Asserting that the educated Japa-
nese want peace and a democratic
government, Lt. Chapman said that;
the country lacks the leadership nec-
essary to "give the whole government,
especially the Japanese Diet, a thor-
ough spring cleaning." Only when
that is done will the people be given
the chance they need and the mate-
rial with which they can work to cre-
ate a New Japan, this time by peace-
ful means. Schools have received
such a "cleaning." and students have,
organized their own government in
direct opposition to the dictatorial
rule to which they were previously
subjected.
Yamashita, Emperor Revered
"The Japanese are truly sorry they
have lost the war, not because they
hate Americans," Lt. Chapman de-
clared, "but because conquered coun-
tries are not too well off in any lan-

guage." The Japanese, he believes,
are an intensely patriotic people,
whole-heartedly behind their em-
peror, blaming themselves and the
militarists for all disasters. Ninety-
nine per cent of them are against
their own leaders, reserving favorable
comments only for the Emperor and
General Yamashita, the "only war
leader the Japanese feel did no cow-
ardly acts and never failed his Em-
peror." They incline to pin his atroci-
ties upon his subordinate officers.
Japs Fear Russians
"Truly interested in our civiliza-I
tion, culture and language," the Jap-
anese feel no antipathy toward Amer-
icans, but have a great fear for the
Russians and the Filipinos. Lt. Chap-
man has found that they "worship
General MacArthur" and are in fa-
vor of his policies, providing he
doesn't attempt to do away with the
emperor. "There will be a bitter
fight," Lt. Chapman asserts, "before
the Emperor will be dethroned." The
only large group in favor of liquidat-
ing the Emperor is the Communists,
against whom feeling runs very high.
At the present time, the Japanese
people are experiencing one of the
worst famines in their history, which
promises to increase in severity. By
such suffering, Lt. Chapman believes,
the Japanese will more than pay in
the future for their sin to mankind.
Aunt Ruth says that among the
many letters she has received, this
one best "expresses the faith that one
must have in order to win the peace."
Most of the letters she has recently
read express a complete loss of hope.
Lt. Chapman concluded his letter
with the statement that "there is no
country, which given the chance,
can't become a good, peace-loving
nation. People are as bad as their
environs, all of them being good and
fine when given the opportunity."
