When they tlrst presented their bill they could not get a single vote for it, but they kept at it, session sftcr session, until they finally succeeded In getting it through. Then when they started to sterilize, people began suing thorn for damages. Has Many SMfoRimrds. Dr. DoJarnette said that the law has been very carefully framed to prevent any injustice. No one may be sterilized without an order from the court which is issued only ,. after a hearing and investigation of the case. Thus their law has stood the test of j the courts. Justice Oliver W.

BERLIN, May 27.—Skull cracking Clashes between the German Com- nunista and the National Socialists ^fascists) have been such a daily 6c- iurrence in different parts of the coun- jry that announcement was made to- lay of a prize contest Tor a design >f a steel helmet to protect the heads »f National Socialist party members. The contest was inaugurated by A.dolf Hitler, fiery leader of the fas- tists. Bloody encounters between Ger- pany's two most militant parties led me insurance companies some mouths igo to refuse policies to the National Socialists. The present contest, it is joped, will offset this disadvantage. iVhile tbe helmets are specifically for •-iquipment of the "storm brigade," me vigilance forces of the party, they rill be available to all members, par- Scularly in going- to and from political 'meetings, when most of the brawls Xjcur. The communists today announced Zhe formation of a "defensive organization" to defend their members Igainst the-"defensive forces" of the National Socialists.

JUSTICE ROBERTS GETS SHARE OF IMMENSE FEE PHILADELPHIA, May 27.—Owen J. Roberta, recently appointed an as that defectives will breed defectives nnd that the only remedy is to sterilize them and thus keep the race up to the highest standards. Dr. Sommer Makes Address. The Lions had as their guests for last night's meeting physicians and nurses from the hospitals in the oity and county, the members of the county poor board, public school teachers and guests from the Rotary, Kiwanis and Quota clubs and the Children's Welfare league. Dr. L. N. Ray, president of the Lions, presided and introduced Dr. Sommer who after a most instructive address Introduced the other speakers of the evening. Dr. Sommer said that when the last statistics were collected there were 51.830 inmates in institutions in the state, including 24,830 in hospitals for the insane, 4,865 for those for mental defectives and 11,500 In almshouses, the balance in prisons. He declared that there are at least 400,000 people in the state who are mentally defective and the number is steadily growing, which means, if it is allowed to go on, that the coming generation will have a fearful burden to carry. The people born with normal bodies and minds who can support them will have to "pay the freight." Every normal family must not only support themselves but the abnormal neighbor family and the most insidious danger of all. there Is always a chance of contamination by intermarriage. Why Nations Have Fallen. Dr. Sommer drew lessons from the past history of the world and sounded a warning for our own country. "Ancient and modern history is full of the rise and fall of nations," said he. "There must be a reason. The promiscuous intermixing of good blood wiUi that of slaves and others and any individual below mental standard is the reason for the downfall of nations usually given. But I contend that the real reason is the gradually growing mental deficiency. Nations have only risen to domination and greatness when the race of such country was mentally sound." Dr. Sommer pointed out how we have steadily conquered typhoid, diphtheria and other diseases, and the question for us now to decide is, are we to allow a general increase of mental defectives of all types? The only remedies, he said, are segregation and sterilization. Segregation is too costly and hence the only remedy is sterilization, a method of meeting the situation of which Dr. Sommer heartily approved: Dr. Jackson Speaks, Dr. Jackson, head of the Danville hospital, gave a most able and eloquent address. He began by complimenting Dr. DeJarnette on the pioneer work he has accomplished in Virginia. Dr. Jackson spoke on mental health and hygiene. He said that the people are now becoming aroused to the necessity of doing something and they are asking the medical an* scientific men to find a remedy for'the appalling increase in the insane and mentally ill. He then pointed out what is being done. He outlined the program that is being carried out in this state through the schools, the hospitals, the press and other agencies and how the mentally retarded are being helped in the process of learning, to the end that they may become self-supporting. He commended the Lions club for what it has been doing to help. He spoke of the prejudice that exists against sterilization and the. other plans for betterment and said that a public sentiment must be created that will make it possible to carry such plans through. MuHt Examine Children. The first step, Dr. Jackson said, is to subject all children to an examination to determine early in life if they are mentklly defective to the end that all the mentally ill may be so placed that they will receive propel AMERICAN GOLFERS DEFEATED ABROAD ST.

Two Additions Arq Made to Faculty to Meet Greater Demands for Vocational Training In District. The Petersburg Vocational High school has found it necessary to increase its faculty by adding two additional members to its teaching force. During the past two years the enrollment of pupils has greatly Increased. In fact, the student population has increased 50 per cent during this time. Next year's enrollment promises to be even greater. . The Petersburg school is now serv\- ing ten townships and boroughs. This in itself is a strong indication of the faith and reliance which the surround- ingfccommunitles place in the school. With such a largo territory sending into the school a constantly increasing enrollment causing thereby too many pupils to be placed in one class it was felt by the directors and faculty that it would be necessary to have smaller classes in order to give the outside pupils as well as those from the home districts the instruction whk-h'they so well merit. Each teacher was already carrying a heavy teaching load. This became increasingly urgent when it was seen that the state department would require extra studies, to be included in the program for the next school year. The school board has devoted much time and effort this year to the selection for its faculty for next year. Everything possible has been done By the board as a group and as individuals to secure the strongest additions possible to the teaching staff. The board therefore feels that it has selected a group of competent and well qualified instructors. The faculty for next'year is as follows: Professor L. G. Sachs, supervising principal; Professor R. Rogers Fouracre, vocational supervisor; Lillian Mae Park, supervisor of music; Margaret Kauffman, supervisor of home economics; Evelyn Morningstar, English and Latin; George Heitsman, assistant vocational and science instructor; Gladys Glaus?, assistant home economics and English instructor. With this enlarged faculty, making possible a more varied, and yet a more intensive program, it is /felt that the coming years hold prospects for continued growth and expansion in the program of vocational education, thus permitting the Petersburg Vocational High school to take its rightful place in the van of the leading schools of its type in the state. KIWANIANS WILL HONOR VETERANS Civil war veterans of the city and vicinity will be the special guests of the Altoona Kiwanis club at its rtoon- day luncheon meeting at the Penn- Alto hotel tomorrow. Invitations have already been extended to.the members of the Grand Army of thrf Republic and the Union Veteran Legion and special honor will be accorded them in this Memorial day week's session. The Kiwanians for p. number of years, almost annually since the organization of the club twelve years ago, have been entertaining the gray and grizzled veterans of the Civil war at the meeting just previous to Memorial day 1 . The ranks of the G. A. R. and the Legion have been thinning in the past few years until there is but a small guard left. It is sixty-five years since the close of the conflict in which they fought and bled to preserve the Union, so that all the survivors are past the age of four score years. . Rev. Burleigh A. Peters, pastor of Grace Lutheran church and a veteran of the World war, will be the speaker on this occasion and willipay a tribute to the loyalty, patriotism and valor of the deceased and the remaining veterans. The club will further its plans for the opening of the boy health farm and also act upon the applications for membership of Albert P. Sharp and Dr. Frank Keagy. A large turnout of the membership is anticipated on this occasion. STREET CARS TO RESUME RUN IN HOLLIDAYSBURG Altoona & Logan Valley Electric Railway officials today announced that beginning Thursday morning street, cars on the Hollidaysburg division would resume operation on Penn street, Garber to Jlllegheny, where repaying operations have been under way since April 1. The street car right of way on this stretch of thoroughfare was completed within three weeks after the work had been started but subsequent delay was had because of the paving on either side of the street car tracks to the full width of the street. It is expected that the last pouring of the cement on the western side of the street will be completed today. Ditring the course of the paving, also the laying of new track on this stretch by the Logan Valley, the street car company operated busses- between the borough limits and the Hollidaysburg terminal in tha former Gaysport district. The busses met the street cars and passengers were transferred about the paving operations. The paving contractor has thrown open the eastern intersection of Garber street where a crossover can be made now by vehicular traffic while the west side of the thoroughfare is being completed and the cement loft to "cure" the specified time.
