al so seemed to be a del ay between speak in g an d hearin g what I said,
so that I k ept repeatin g my sel f in a v ain attempt to catch u p' an d

u sed to see al l k in ds of peopl e come in thin k in g they were g oin g crazy
or dy in g . I soon l earn ed that these reaction s were more psy chol og ical
than pharmacol og ical .
On e time, a father an d mother came in with their teen - ag e dau g h-

brown ies an d j u st fel t v ery hig h. B efore I had a chan ce to do an y thin g ,
a staff psy chiatrist came down an d g ot cau g ht u p in the famil y hy s-

worst of the three, pl eadin g with u s to sav e his wife. ) T he psy chiatrist

cou l d hav e tal k ed her down in an hou r, if I had j u st been abl e to g et
her away from her hu sban d an d cal m her.
T he best method I hit u pon for deal in g with dru g pan ics in the
