Suggest State Department for Mental Disease SURVEY SHOWS DIRECT 11ELA- TIOX IlKTWKtiX MEXTAL IMS- ORDKRS AXD CRIMK, AS- SOCIATIOX SAYE There is a direct relation between mental disorders and crime, accord- Ing to a copyrighted report of the Mifesouri Association for Criminal Justice, released today. Studies of prison populatinos have shown from 16 to 42.7 per cent mentally defective; 75 per cent of the Inmates of the city jail at St. Louis were found to be abnormal; 69 per cent of the St. Louis work-house inmates were suffering from mental and nervous disorders, and 19 per cent of the various correctional institutions for i children were defective in intelli-i gence. One of the most discouraging facts brought out by this survey is the great frequency of repeated o.Tend- ars.

Two out of three sentenced to our correctional Institutions and al- most every other one passing Use police courts hare served one or more previous sentences. Many of these should be segregated, permanently if necessary, for treatment, either mental or phyiscal, rather than sentenced for short terms and then released to commit other offenses, the association recommended. There should be a State Department for Mental Diseases, which the courts could call upon for assistance in picking 'out the mentaly deficient. Means should be provided for placing such mental deficients In institutions where they could be properly treated. Instead of the 'disgraceful spectacle often enacted in courts where a plea of insanity is made at a trial supported by hired expert testimony, the defendant should be required to submit himself to an ex-j am ination by the State Department for Mental Diseases.

The findings of this disinterested body would be submitted to the court and made available to counsel for the defendant and the state. The department for mental diseases aato should be empowered to co-operate with Department 'Of Education in a survey of school children so that the special schol facilities already provided by law for those showing marked mental disorders could be made available. Much can be done by segregating and treating the mentally deficient when they are young, thus aiding in cutting off crime at its source. Other recommendations of the association are provisions for the mental examination of inmates of the penitentiary and correctional institutions and the establishment a hospital prison for the criminal insane and defective. DEMOCRATS ARE NEAR CONTROL OF THE NEXT SENATE PRIMARY RESULTS TO DATE IX- DICATE THE ADM1XISTRA- TIOX IS IXJSIXG GROUXU The Republicans Must Win 25 Out ot 2O Contests nt the Pulls, in November to Maintain a Numerical Majority WASHINGTON, Sept.

9--Primary results to date indicate 1 the administration will have a hari time controlling the next senate. At the present line-up, thf domin- afing faction of the republican party most win 25 out of 26 contests at the polls iu November to maintain a numerical majority in the upper house --virtually an imposible task as matters stand. The Democrats need to win but two seats to throw control the senate into the hands of a uon-adnilnis- tration coalition of Democrats and independents such as exercised control in the sixty-eighth congress. If the Democrats should win eight seats from the republicans they could organize the senate, name the committee chairman and uu the legislative show, without help from the independents. Their strength, of course, cannot be estimated until November but the victory of John J.

Elaine, La Follette suporters, in Wisconsin and Smith W. Brookhart in Iowa over two administration republicans has made the independents stronger numerically than ti.ey were even in 1923, when the Lafollette Group held the balance of legislative power. Besides the gains in Iowa and Wisconsin, the independents have held strength by renominating a senatorial candidate in North Dakota. No otherindependents come up for re- n-omiiiation this year.
