S. De- arnette, superintendent of the West- rn State hospital. Staunton, Va.; Dr. . A. Jackson, superintendent of the tat* hospital at Danville; Dr. Harvey Catkins, superintendent of the Polk U hospital for feeble-minded at k, and Dr. Theodore Diller, neuro- gyehtatrist of St. Francis' hospital, D«. Jackson and Watkins in their ddresses told of the overcrowded con- Hlons existing in the state institu- ong for the insane, while pr. De Jarette again presented an argument in ftvot of sterilization of the feebleminded, pointing out the advantage of arrylng on the work in Pennsylvania rlth the aim of gradually reducing the lumber of persons Ahus afflicted. It was brought out that 50 cents of very dollar paid in each county in axes eventually goes to pay for the Lpkeep of institutional inmates. The speakers agreed that it is Im- lossible to segregate all feeble-minded tersons, as the cost would be pro- ilbitlve. Neither is such a course lecessary, for many such persons are larmless and can be of use to society, Ince many of them are capable of ervicB in gainful occupations. K The greatest menace is in their reproduc- ion and sterilization was advocated as he only way to eliminate such a pos- ibllity. All of the speakers, advocated a cam- >aign of education among the people, o the end that a law might be pass- id In the state along the lines of the Virginia statute to prevent procrea- lon-of the mentally deficient and thus essen the possibility of eventual lecadence of the race. Dr. H. C. Thomas, president of the iociety, opened the meeting and then turned the gavel over to Dr. H. J. iommer, superintendent of the coun- hospital. BANKING DAY IN SCHOOLS. » I PENN SCHOOL.
