Bottling Aggressive Impulses
Declared Cause of Suicides
jjy me aksucibicu ness,
ST. LOUIS. May 2.—Dr. Gregory
Ziloorg. New York psychiatrist, told
the Missouri Society for Mental
Hygiene today suicides resulted not
from insanity and depressions but
from the "bottling up" of inherent
aggressive impulses.
"Unless the psychic machine, the
human individual, is permitted to
function freely, it will wilt under the
pressure of its own inner steam and,
like a boiler whose safety valves are
plugged up, it will break.” he said.
Dr. Zilboorg. secretary of the Com
mittee for the Study of Suicide,
Inc., asserted, "the recent growth
of political dictatorships undoubtedly
serves as such an agency of plugging
up man's natural drives and it would
not be surprising to learn that suicide
will begin to increase as a result.
If man's natural aggression does not
find its legitimate outlet, it will turn
I on itself.”
1 Deprivation, financial or otherwise,
unless coupled with such factors of
repression, is "of rather secondary
importance and it would seem, there
fore, that the conclusion that econo
mic depressions are responsible for
the growth of suicide is a hasty one."
j he said.

This year she gave her party af
