'LOLLIPOP TECHNIQUE':
Psychiatrist Asserts That
Homes Breed Mental Illness

The American home is the pri-
mary source of mental illness, Dr. C.
Charles Burlingame, psychiatrist of
the Institute of Living, Hartford,
Conn., charged yesterday in a lec-
ture before the seventeenth annual
Parent Education Institute here.
School Officials
Conference Set

and a Conference of State School
Principals and Superintendents will
hold special meetings tomorrow at
the Union.
The College Association will dis-
cuss problems 6f college enrollment
and student selection. Dr. John R.
Emens, president of Ball State
Teachers College, Muncie, Ind., and
University Provost James P. Adams

education. Principal speakers will be
Paul Good, of the U. S. Chamber of
Commerce, Dr. Benjamin Fine, edu-
cation editor of the New York Times,
and Brendan Sexton, Detroit regional
educational representative of the
UAW-CIO.
Debaters Will
Speak in Ohio
Three Michigan debaters will leave
today for Cleveland where they will
join Western Reserve debaters for a
series of open debates before seven
high schools in that area. Bill Starr
from Lansing, Sidney Zilber from De-
troit and William Flaskcamp from
Bay City will uphold the negative on
the national high school debate ques-
tion, Resolved: That the federal gov-
ernment should provide a system of
complete medical care available to
all citizens at public expense. Repre-
sentatives from Western Reserve will
handle the affirmative on the ques-1
tion.

Over-protection of children, over-
anxiety of parents, a "gimmie-gim-
.nie" atttitude, and the "lollipop tech-
nique" of raising children were list-
ed by Dr. Burlingame as principal
factors in the increase of mental ill-
ness.
Realistic Training
"If we expect our children to sur-
vive in this world. -we must give them
the advantage of realistic training,"
Dr. Burlingame said, pointing out
that the bulk of neuropsychiatric dis-
charges from the armed forces went
to men who had never been in com-
bat, but whose illnesses were caused
by their home training.
The "lollipop technique" of re-
warding children for doing right is
responsible for more mental disor-
ders than any other single factor, he
said.
Parents have the duty and obliga-
tion to prepare their children for life
by teaching them to do things because
they are right, and helping them to
learn to reason what is right, Dr.
Burlingame said.0
Expressing the view that the en-
tire world scene seems to reflect the
premise of getting something out of
everything, Dr. Burlingame said that
children should be taught to give as
well as to get.
Independent Teenagers
Parents must show respect for teen-
agers' independence and sense of re-
sponsibility when they seek to give
guidance, Mrs. Belle Farley Murray,
lecturer and consultant in family re-
lations for the University Extension
Service and the Michigan State Board
in Control of Vocational Education,
told the opening session of the In-
stitute.
Asserting that the kind of thinking
that tries to solve child behavior prob-
lems without first' analyzing them
must be discarded, Dr. Ralph J. Oje-
mann, member of the staff of the
Iowa Child Welfare Research Station,
advised listening to the child's story
first.
"We still discuss the question,
'Should I spank or shouldn't I?' as if
we could decide without knowing
what caused the behavior we propose
to treat by spanking," he said.
Children must develop attitudes of
equality toward all individuals re-
gardless of race or creed in the home,
or they willypt school, Dr. and Mrs.
Harry Overstreet told the Institute.

'NOW A WORD FROM-'
Abbot Says Boycott Can Stop
Obnoxious Commercials'

By ANN SCHOONMAKER
The radio fan who gets hot under
the collar when a commercial hacks
up his favorite program has only
himself to blame.
According to Waldo Abbot, director
of the University Broadcasting Ser-
vice, it is "the fault of the radio lis-
tener for acepting, without voluble
condemnation, programs which have
become obnoxious because of ex-
cessive advertising."
Although efforts have been made
in the past by the National Asso-
ciation of Broadcasters to place a
time limit on the commercial content
of radio programs, he said, a code of
standards has never worked out be-
cause the advertisers refused to co-
operate.
Hwever, the American system of
broadcasting is undoubtedly the
"best system," he asserted, because
it presents to the public the finest
artists and writing talent at the ex-
pense of thhe advertiser-programs
which could not be obtained without
vast expenditure.
"When sponsors, advertising agen-
cies, and broadcasters recognize the
fact that they are cheapening these
outstanding programs through ex-
cessive advertising, and it is called
to their attention by the disinterest
of the listening public, these faults
may be corrected."
Advertising copy in radio programs
is as justified as advertising in mag-
azines, however, Abbot said. "It
would be impossible to publish and
distribute the magazines we enjoy
without the income derived from the
advertisers, and the same thing is
true of radio."
If the advertising overwhelms or
detracts from the value of the maga-
zine or the radio programs, he went
on to say, the public will either stop
buying the magazine or stop listen-
ing to the program, and in this way

force the publisher or the radio sta-
tion to eliminate such obnoxious or
excessive advertising.
As far as the future of radio in
frequency modulation is concerned,
he stated that the FCC has set aside
bands for non-commercial radio
stations such as those educational
institutions, which offers a possible
solution to the problem.
When such educational FM sta-
tions present programs as attractive
as those broadcast by commercial
stations and programs which will be
free of all advertising content, then,
commercial broadcasters will be
forced to listen and to accede to the
criticism of the listener.

the Associated Press in 1924, and
served as chief of that bureau from
1928 to 1942. He built up an exten-
sive network of contacts with big
government officials in Germany,
and had personal interviews with
many of them. Their words and
plans, taken from the text of Loch-
ner's book, "What About Germany?"
were placed on record by the Ameri-
can prosecution in the Nuernberg
trial.
On Dec. 10, 1941, Lochner and other
Berlin correspondents were rounded
up and taken to the Gestapo prison
at the Alexanderplatz in Berlin. He
returned to this country in June,
1942, aboard the Drottingholm in an
exchange of German and American
diplomats and writers.
With the end of the war, Lochner
returned to Europe and later to Ger-
many, to report on conditions there
and cover the Nuernberg trials of the
men he had last seen as the leaders
of the Third Reich. He will discuss
this trial in his lecture Thursday.
Single admission tickets for Loch-
ner's speech will be sold Wednesday
and Thursday at the Hill Auditorium
box office.
