(Original Caption) 5/5/1942-San Bernardino, CA-New hope for restoring full sanity to tortured minds of victims of "manic-depressive" psychoses is this electric shock treatment, demonstrated at Patton State Hospital, near San Bernardino, Calif. Electrodes held against the patients's head by rubber bands deliver the jolt required to remedy short circuits in the brain's switchboard. The apparatus at the rear doles out the electric current as adequately as an eye dropper.
