IOWA CITY, L : P--A. University of Iowa psychologist's report Monday chopped the foundation from under the ancient adage that a child is a chip oft the old block. Dr. Harold VV. SJ;cels, child welfare psychologist, announced a study of 73 children showed intelligence, or lack of it, is not necessarily inherited. The psychologist, who is intelligence tester for the state board of control, said the study disclosed the children, whose parents tested low on the intelligence scale, rated above normal after two years in good foster homes. In charge of the state's orphanages and homes for children, the board of control supervises adoption of its wards, many of whom are children of sub-normal parents. Dr. Skecls' study covered a two year period from the time the children were adoptd in infancy. He reported that: The entire group of 73 children had an intelligence quotient of 11G.7 or 6.7 average. The adopted children whose mothers' intelligence was near.the feeble-minded level ranked 6.6 points above average. Those born of two defective parents averaged less than five points below average. The psychologist expressed the following conclusion from his study: "The rapid mental growth of the children can be attributed to the environment influence of good homes and apparently bears little relationship to the mental status of the true parents."
