Main Ph. 519 Report Made In Hospila! Probe Committee Concedes Many Things Needed But Laud Managers MILU3DGEVII.LE. Oa., Mar, 1C (UP)—An Invr-stlgiitlng committee has fonnally reported that many things, including new buildings and equipment, are needed at llie Clcor- gia State Hospital for (lie Insane. Bill commutee members believe that the hospital management, should be commended for wlntl it has done. Ending a three-day probe of CIO charge;,- Unit R Hmc of the institution's almost 8500 inmates lave been mistreated, (he committee declares the charges were instigated by the CIO to further its own expansion rather than lo improve the hospital conditions. The regional CIO director. Charles •-• II. Gillmnii, charges Hint the com- lc. mittce report is wlwl he railed n. «', "(lagiT.nt whitewash." And Ciillnnui ' urges approval of a sum-cstion bv Uic 1/jtiBuc of Women Voters llm'l a .scientific survey be made by « competent professional body. Couimltlce members have" reported they round the century-old hos- pilal undermanned. That medical and custodial staff should be enlarged. That food variety is inade- qunlc. And Ural mot-e milk and fresh vcficlables arc needed. These findings partially substantiate siimc of the CIO's charges. The committee report says that wartime conditions are the explanation. And (he committee denies that patients are poorly clothed, that the hospital is cold, and that patient, with infectious diseases are handling food. Uillman said the CIO could not understand why the committee shirked-' its responsibility. The committee reports that the CIO investigation of the hospital apparently originated after two hospital workers. CIO members, had been dismissed for inefficiency And the committee further says f that, had the union been interested in the patient's welfaie. rather than publicity for a drive for members llie CIO would have can-led its complaints first to the hospital officials , rather than to the press. The committee has conceded a CIO charge that ward attendants sometime.-; sew up minor cms unsaid it, fails to find that this lias been Injurious to any of the patients. ..Censors!:.'? -:•'. outgoing; mail, another union charge, also has been admitted. But the report points out that it must l>c remembered the inmates are. insane, and might alarm their loved ones with incoherent letters. Johnson says he's convinced lhat Ihe rn.ltwys musl get additional niiinpo.ver and materials, otherwise, he says, our Iransporlalioji sytcm will be incapable of carry- iuif as heavy loads as they handled last year and (he year before.
