(U.P.)—Further cx[J3nv.on of either unit or Hie Slate Hospital foi 1 Nervous Diseases has been opposed in n report submitted to (he Joint Senate-House Hospital investigating Committee. The report was by Dv. Samuel W. Hamilton, U. S. Public Health Service nient-U hygiene advisor, following a study of the institutions at the request ol Gov. Ben Laney. Dr. Hnriillton's repn.-i Enid that further building at the Bonton unit—except for a reception building for patients and nn infirmary for (lie physically 111—shoul.l bo halted. He also sav no need for further expansion of the Littlei Reel: unit. The doctor's reason for restricting construction \\-ns the prc.spnt size of the two units. The report said: "The larger a hospital prows the ( niare iin|X>^Siblc it becomes for the head of the institution to knojv even a .little a'oout individual patients; 3,500 pailsnts is a figure above which no oue should desire to go." Dr. Hamilton also discouraged i .expansion flt BeiU<m because, of j available water. He sine! the nddi-j tion of patients unii employees: would make the threat of a water shortage very serious. The doctor advise 1 tho setting up, of a separate colony for mentally defective pel sons in order that they may be kept away from mentally' ill persons. He nlso suggested a. studv of the: possibility of ."boarding out" patients who arc nble to leave the hospital but who have no home ] or cannot readjust themselves 10' theh\ family. Other- • suggestions include: A maxiniuih'bf '2,500 palU'nts at each unit, with a desired maximum of 1,600; -better cnro of tubercular patients; and more personnel in all divisions of' the'hospital.
