Importance Of
Behavior Study

In Human Conduct
Influence on Health
Emotional Instability May
Be Cause of Alcoholism
And Drug Addiction
"Nothing in the study of the hu-
man being is of more importance
than behaviour and its various sour-
ces of motivation," declared Dr. War-
ren E. Forsythe, director of the
health service, in addressing the 4
o'clock education conference yester-
day. "The fundamental forces in be-
haviour with which man is by na-
ture endowed as contrasted to the
influerkes which society later im-
poses are now regarded as basic in
most of human conduct.
"These drives are popularly refer-
red to as instincts with concomitant
feelings referred to as emotions. It
seems that much more scientific
study and general appreciation of
these lurges is needed."
Facor in Health
In a consideration of the factors
of human health, Dr. Forsythe in-
dicated, the influence of the emo-
tional elements might be shovyn, at
several points.
"All questions of human health de-
termined by heredity are probably
influenced much more by emotions
than reason; mate selection is so
frequently a matter of feelings un-
controlled by intelligent considera-
tions. The large part which emo-
tions play in the great problem of
nutrition is illustrated by the prob
lems of appetite at all ages and the
fact that well over half of the gas-
l tro-intestinal complaints result from
an emotional, non-physical basis.;
"Many problems of physical activ-
'ity and physiologic rest are under-
stood to depend upon feelings in the
individual rather than upon reason-
ed processes. Health problems re-
Sulting from styles in clothing, -cos-
metics, etc., are too frequently hard
to justify as a process of logical
Cites Disease Problem
Dr. Forsythe also pointed out that
the large question of health as influ-
enced by poisons taken into the body
has as its basis very largely emo-
tional, instability. Habit forming
drug addiction, patent medicine us-
age and alcoholism are outstanding
"In the realm of infections," he
continued, "the most tangible sit-
uation based upon lack of emotional
control is probably tle greatest prob-
lgm of venereal diseases with their
wide-spread' destruction even to
succeeding generations. One element
in the control of the important dis-
ease of tuberculosis in a given . per-
son is dependent to a considerable
degree upon emotional stability,"

Storm Breaks in Chicago When
Judge Upholds Birth Control

CHICAGO, July 25. - (AP) - A
storm of contradictory comment has
followed a decision by Circuit Judge
Daniel P. Trude in which the gave
the first judicial approval of birth
control ever expressed in Chicago.
The decision was given in the
case of Mrs. Gertrude Bemis, w}o
was granted separate maintenance
from her husband, Walter J. Bemis,
a consulting engineer. a
"It is evident to me," the court
skid, "that too many children have
been born to this couple. The mother
rebelled at motherhood. The job was
too much for her."
In granting the separate main-
tenance Judge Trude specifically cit-
ed the couple's five children as the
reason for their martial discord, and
ignored Mrs. Bemis' charge that her
husband centered his attentions on
,another woman.
Commenting on the court's action,
Dr. Rachelle Yarros, a woman medi-
PHONE 7418

cal specialist, said "a woman ought
to have the right to decide how
many children she can care for with-
out injury to her health."
Judge Joseph A. Graber of the
court of domestic relations, on the
other hand, took an opposing view.
Judge Trude told Mrs. Bemis to
go to California on a vacation.
