Asserting that "only ab~out two per
cent of the feeble-minded have crim-
inal tendencies and it, is doubtful
whether the feeb~le-minded are mo.~re
criminal than the so-called normals,"
Dr. Theophil Klingman of the S1.
Joseph's hospital spoke before ,a re-
cent *ioeting of the Ann Arbor Law-
yers' club.
T'he speaker stated1 that there were
more than 322,000 patients in the
public mental hospitals of the United
z ates, and that this number exceedls
henumber of those who occupied
hospital bedls for illness dune to all
other causes. "In other words, there
are more persons who are mentally
sick than physically sick," said Dr.
liniatnMes :1nuber
Dliscussing the matter of feeble-I
mindedness, the speaker placed the
num'ber of ment ally deficient people
in the U~nited States at 500,000, of
whom 50,000 are residents of insti-
tutions. "The average layman," said
the speaker, "dismisses the subject
of the mentally (defective with the'
idea that this type of individual is a
dangerous, marauding criminal and
that the only solution is to lock
them - up in institutions. As a matter
of fact, only two per cent of the
feeble-minded are criminally in-
Dr. Klingman affirimed that un-
doubtedly heredity was an extremely
potent factor in molding a personali-

Professor Sims has been interested
for some time in archer y and has
Smade numerous bows for lelasure.
"Man started making bows and
arrows far back in archaeologic
times,'' Professor Sims said. "The
sport was fairly well developed dur-
ing, the early Greek and Roman eras,;
and the English -longbowmen of the
time of Robin I-oo(d never' have been
"The 01(1 English yeoman used a
long bow, six feet long. Aboriginal

w~ithi a bow irequires accnrti e' wvoods-

row ill the aliimal, biesaidl.
"'The bowy is not so important as
the arrow, hiowever, as it is the a r-
row whichi determinies the straight-
ness of a, shot. Bow-wN"ods conmmonly
used are Osa i e orange andllc Oregon
yew. Other woods, among thewm some
tropical wood.s, are also being,, used,
as have ash, hickory, and red cedar.
Of the twoV( different types of arrows
the sell-arrow is most commonly used.

short bow probably because thley
coul get around in brush fast er. In
America, IndIian archery disappeared
when the musket came in. The bow
h~as been used merely 'for sport ever
since fire arms were first introduced.
Lately, archery has been popular~
again. The wide-spread interest to-
day is a result of good advertising."
If a person builds his own 'tackle'
hie will get manual traininlg that will
relieve him of many of the (lay's wor-
ries, according to Professor, Sims.
Nothing can give greater p~leasure
thain the bow, the forestry professor

the hleavier on the head of the shaft
so') that the arrow will fly better..
"An arrow must be light without
sacriflcing rigidity." Spruce, redwood,
and hickory go into the makiing of an
arrow. Tvrget arrows are poinited
with bullet jiackets. H-unting shafts
have sharp, knife-like heads or blunt
heads, depeildin.g on the gamie. The
feathe-rs used are the primary pinlions
of a t i-key~c which ar.e split andl
inuiited o tile shaft andI then cut to
shape. Arrows depend on their cut-
ting power' to kill, not on thmeir shock-
inig power as a bullet dloes.

the whole story. "Research in the
field of heredity has broughlt us to a
point where we cannot predict per-
sonality," 'he asserted.
Speaking of sterilization as a so-
lution to the feeble-minded problem,
Dr. Klingman said thlat a public re -
action had set in against the pro-
cedure. Furthermore the British As-
sociation for the study of m~ental de-
ficiency decided that sterilization was
not a feasible measure. The speaker
said that the value of sterilization is
a moot question and that it is cer"-
tain that legislation is premature.
Men~tal Hygiene Aids
"Prevention must be constructive
and its program calls for the erection
of protective barriers many years be-
fore mental diseases may be expect-
ed to strike," assertedl Dr. Kl-
"Speaking calmly and dispassion-
ately," he concluded, "andI with doue
regard for the limitation of tile es-
tablished treatment for mental dis-
eases, at least :one-half of all mental
disease is preventable by mental hy-
giene. Mental hygiene is a twentieth
century product and it has mitigated
many evils in our present day civili-
tation and is indIeed peculiar to tile
needs of our age."
