DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY, experts say

“Worry is the chief cause of insanity in the United States,” says Everett S. Elmwood, secretary of New York’s mental hygiene committee, yet another of the many progressives not reluctant to advise others on how to live.

Mr. Elmwood’s speech, given yesterday in New York, was covered in the Chicago Daily Tribune. He estimates that “[i]f persons would not worry insanity would decrease 40 percent.”  Dr. Frank P. Norbury of Illinois, who also spoke, agrees that worry is a “principal” cause of insanity. From recent reports, it seems that quite a few public officials have been worrying of late.

The message from the experts in this field seems to be:  in your life expect some trouble; but when you worry, you make it double; don’t worry, be happy.
