Dr. Ed Bond Speaks At Edenton
Woman’s Club Meeting, Using
Mental Health As His Subject
An interesting address on men- 1 '
tai health by Dr. Ed Bond high-11
lighted the March meeting of the <
Woman’s Club held in the Parish .
House Wednesday of last week.
During the course of his ad- ;
dress, Dr. Bond touched on the ,
incidence of mental illness and
what a problem it is. He defined
mental health in terms of be
havior and gave a brief outline of
how one’s personality grows and
affects this behavior. He also
commented on anxiety and its
Dr. Bond told his Woman’s
Club audience some 9,000,000
Americans have some form of
mental disorder, adding that one |
of every two hospital beds is oc
cupied by a psychiatric patient.
He cited the need for more and
better facilities for. psychiatric
care and more funds for research.
Dr. Bond defined mental health
in terms of behavior, saying ab
normal or neurotic behavior is
largely determined by unconsci
ousness factors, and psychotis be
havior refers to a complete sepa
ration of behavior from the wide
range of normal. “If our behav
ior is largely determined by con
scious factors, we are in good
mental health,” Dr. Bond said,
“and if our behavior is largely
controlled by factors outside of
our awareness, we may be in
poor mental health.”
Dr. Bond said personality de
termines the way we behave and
defined it as “the sum total of
our body, temperament, charac
ter, desires, beliefs—all of these
qualities which gives each of us
an individual uniqueness.”
“These parts of the personality
have to work together effective
ly to maintain adequate, self-es
teem,” the speaker continued,
saying “the personality must
have an optimum number of
sound ideas well related to the
environment, a sufficient quantity
of good will in relation to others,
and must avoid acquiring too
much hate. Failure to achieve
these may be as bad as some phy
sical defects. He cited the de
velopment of one’s personality
from infancy and declared “that
maturity of personality is attain
ed only through successive stag
es of maturation in which arrest
and deviations may occur.”
Proven facts concerning the
causes of mental disorders are re
grettably limited, Dr. Bond con
tinued, adding the best help so
far comes from experience in this
field and the formulation of theo
ries as to how disorders of per
sonality have developed. “Ex
cept in those mental disorders in
which there is a psychological im
pairment of the brain through
toxic or structural changes, hu
man behavior is explainable in
terms of various psychological ex- ,
periences or needs,” Dr. Bond de
The speaker noted there is no
justification for the pessimistic ;
suggestion that the pace of mod
ern life conduces to mental j
breakdown and pointed up the ,
importance of religious ideas and ,
spiritual forces in maintaining
proper personality balance. “The
founders of the science of psychi- ,
atry have often stated that in the
final analysis, many patients who :
failed to make a proper adjust
ment to life had first failed to ;
establish proper religious ideas :
and practices,” Dr. Bond said. ;
“Prevention of mental illness is
the important thing and it is ;
largely through proper attention j
to normal home, school and |
church life that our youth will .
develop into mature citizens and ,
keep on the right road. i
Commenting on anxiety, the •
speaker declared this is a result
of any threat of change in the
concept of the self, and said an
xiety will always be a part of
life. “It alerts us when the self i
is threatened. It results from
living and also because of its
presence makes living worth- ]
while,” he said.
Dr. Bond said there is no such
thing as an abnormal or neurotic
type of anxiety, declaring the ap
parent difference in the effects
of the reaction lies in the way
the individual handles his share
of anxiousness and what he does
to overcome it.
During the business session,
seven new members were elected

Petition Withdrawn
For Improvements j
Continued From Page 1. Section 1 1
Dr. A. M. Stanton and Robert
Powell appeared at th£ meeting
in behalf of the Barker Street and
Williamson Road property own
ers. who objected to the cost in-,
volved for curbing and guttering
and inferred that they preferred
a hard-surfaced street instead of
curbs and gutters.
The Councilmen complied with
the petition for withdrawal, so
that unless some later action is
taken no street improvements
will be made.
No complaint was received
from Albania Street property
passed to advertise for bids to
owners, so that a motion was
passed to advertise for bids to
construct curb and gutter and
storm sewer on Albania Street,
as well as adding curb and gutter
at the sqme time on West Hicks
Street. These bids will be re
viewed ,at the next meeting of
Town Council.
The withdrawal of the petition
has cost the town $473.48 which
represents the engineering ex-'
expense for that portion of the
At the request of Fire Chief W.
J. Yates the Councilmen agreed
to make an appropriation for the
expense in connection with the
annual meeting of the Eastern
North Carolina Firemen’s Asso

Association comprises about 30
The Councilmen also agreed
to appropriate SIOO toward the
expense of staging the annual
Chowan Cliunty Fat Stock Show
and Sale at the American Legion
building. Wednesday, March 26.
Charlie H. Jernigan was grant
ed a permit to operate a taxicab.
During the meeting Jesse Har
rell was re-appointed as a mem
ber of the board of directors of
the Chowan Hospital. He was
appointed for a three-year term.
A committee presented a report
relative to a proposed building
for the Street Department on
West Hicks Street. Arrange
ments have been made for the
department and E & W Depart
ment to use a driveway jointly
and the romm+ttee, J. - Clarjence,
Leary and J. Edwin Bufflap, was
authorized to work with the
Board of Public Works in an ef
fort to purchase a lot in‘the rear
of the town property which will
give access to the railroad for un
loading supplies for the Street,
Department, as well as providing
more room for both departments.
Councilman Raleigh Hollowell
reported that papers are now be
ing prepared giving the town a
20-foot right of way for extend
ing East Eden Street from Court
Street to the rear of the business
firms on the east side of Broad
Street. The idea in mind is to
provide a street which will start
at Court Street, going west, then
south between the town and
county property with the exit be
tween the Court House and hotel
to King Street.

Young Kehayes was also one
of eight of the students to be
interviewed after their selection
on their home town schools.
Tommy’s comment in the inter
view loilows:
“Whether a subject in our high
school was hard or easy depend
ed on what the student was look
ing for. If he was willing to
work, there was always some
thing to be gained from a course.
I was not bored or idle. I had
too much work, both academic
and extra-curricular.
“Our biggest problem was the
lack of discipline on the part of
the students. I mean a lack of
the responsibility the students
should show themselves.”
