EIGHT THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. THURSDAY, SEPT. 28, 1939. Crippled Children mm'n Work Is Reviewed by Head . LANSING, Sept. 27.—Hugh E. Van de Walker, chairman of ,the Michigan Crippled Children commission, in a statement today made reply to criticisms tiding overdrafts on appro- prlations for the care of crippled and lafflicted children under the state law and pointed the rehabilitation of crippled children, who might otherwise have continued as public charges. "We have been criticized over a long period of time for the amount erf money expended for the care'fof children," said Mr. Van de WalkSer^'but until the present tijne wtWhave beerts, utterly withdut co'mrol over .those Mature, until this year,- had seen fit not to confer upon us any authority for the commitment of these children nor any control over the length of time they were allowed to re- m-irlor trpatmpnt nr ill treatment or in U Out of iiine "Ten years ago the Criopled Children commission served notice on the governor and the state administrative board that there was imminent prospect of the funds beiire''' •Qyer. spent, because of' lack '•$£' such 4 control. Untifiphis yiat 'the state approprifrajed mphMg lor and provided sai^ncoOTtfinated ; outlets for spending it. The intention was' 'the best in the world but the method was a direct bid for overdrafts and trouble. In each county trie.; probate judge could -commits children when satisfied Y;>jthat i ' the family of the patient'scofalcK not bear the cost, and the cost oi care then became a charge on the state or, in some cases, on the county. There was no centralized control. "Under the new law commitments are to be cleared in advance of actual treatment through the commission at Lansing, where the outgo can be measured to the money available. "I believe we can assure the people of Michigan that there will be no overdrafts against the appropriations this year, even though ' the money provided and allotted to counties is so small that some counties will not be able to care for even one crippled child, unless the legislator provides further funds. Total Coast "For example, Oscoda county has a monthly allotment of $9.09 for the care of crippled children, or a total of $109.08 for the year. The cost of the care of . cripnled children in that county for 1937-38 was $1,976.80. The situation is quite similar in Roscommon county, whose ^-monthly allotment is $10.13, and a total of $121.56 for the year. Expenses. there in 1937-38 were' $616.64. Montmorency .county will receive $14.50 a month, a total of $174 for the year, and the total cost there tor J 937-38 was $345.05. "The' average cost of care per case was approximately $155. -Can you tel'l me how these counties are going to care for more than one child in a year? There is not one county in the state which will receive more than one-half of what Was spent in that county during the last fiscal year." Mr. Van de Walker declared that during the life of the Michigan Crippled Children commission, 8,074 persons have been rehabilitated, that is, physical deficiencies have been corrected and the children have been given vocational training. The latest figures from the Michigan Department of Rehabilitation show that ! >rsons are earning an i of $18.25 per week. | an even 8,000 re- j habilitated persons as the basis ' our figures, that ig for the r week," Mr. Van de Walker. "Multiply this by four and you will arrive at the total of $584,000 a month. Now again, multiply the $584,000 by 12 and you have a total income of these rehabilated people of $7,008,000 i a year. ' : ': ! Earning Period ! "It is said-"that the average earning period of time in the life of a person is 40 years. I shall not attempt to figure this out, but you can readily see that it would run into a tremendous sum. "It seems to me that with j all the hullabaloo that has 1 been made over the expense i incurred incident to the opera- | tion of the commission when | these figures are taken into j account the state must have made considerable financial ain by having these .people ^aken out of the 'red' and nr\ade self-sustaining persons, j III' -addition to.-this, many of tfffcm are married-and are supr »riing families of their own. jjhers-who are unmarried are .aking contribution toward support .of .their families, and iAV-sorriqsiri-stances are the sole support: : "It fras. been stated by an eminent- hospital authority in this state, that it costs approximately $385 per year to maintain an individual in one of the institutions of the state. If this is true, and even one- half of this 8,000 were public charges, as they were before they were found, rehabilitated, educated and taught a trade, the cost of their maintenance before this was done should I also be added to their present j earnings in order to get a true I picture of their status so far | as the state is concerned as of 1 today."
