Dr, A. XI. Barrett Tlells of ('onditions
Among Feebleminded of State
In Tlenth Nunmber' on
Presented Statistics Showing Growth
Of Insanity In
r Michigan
Some 1t or 12 years ago the Pitis-
borg milliooaire Thaw shot Stanford
White to the Madison Square gardi-
ens. lHe was adjudged criminally in-
sane, sod committed to Mattewan. No
man to history lass received more
space to the newspapers of the coun-
try than hie, sod the Ipeople at large
still have insanity to fall hark o
when other topics for spiy convet'sa-
tion are lackintg.
Tuesday evening Prof. A. M. Barrett,
of the medical school, lectured in the
west lecture coons of the phsysical lab-
oratory. It was the tenth numbser uon
Ithe prograna of sumsmer lectures.
Seats were at a premiums. The am-
phitheater was filled, ansd several pee-
sons walked away disgruntled. he-
cause they could not obtain a chair.
Women students and Ants Arbtor ladies
formed the greater part of tihe atud-
iene. It was the largest crowd thsat
has assembled at any of the lectures
this summer.
No one left tlae hall before the fis-
ish of the talk, and frost thse remarks
when the end finally came tlhe lecture
was altogether too shourt. Tihe stab-
ject was: "The Extent ad Causes of
Insanity and Feeble-minsdednsess itt
The basis for Dr. Barrett's lectusre
was the report of tlte commttissiont ap-
pointed by thte legislature of Michigan,
to investigate insantity and feeble-
mindedness its ftse state. 'is com-
mission, of which Dr. Barrett was evi-
dently a memober, worked for two
years to ito search for causes anti sta-
tistics, and the fintal report was ntu
returned until last Ray.
Dr. Barrett presentted his figures
Sand results by means of charts wvhichs
were throwvn upon a acceen. Intsatn-
ity, according to this sturvey is ott thte
inctresse itt Michtigats, for in 1890 titers'
were but 1652 personts ins the state in-
stitutions, while itt 1914 this nuntber
had increased to t95t. In 7981, 3.3 per
cent of the populatiotn were insane; in
1914 this percetntage tad growvt to 4.3
per cent. At presettt 27 ottt of l0,000
personts its Micitigant are beintg treated
in hospitals attd sanitariutts for thte
.Dr. Barrett broutt ottt itt a very
striking manntet' thte relation betwett
feeble-mntdedness attd the critminal
problem, "Sevettty-twvo per cettt of
the innites of the refortmatory itsti-
tution for gitls at Adrittt sre abttor-
mal," said hte, "attd 38 per cent
of thte boys its the industrial sehool at
Lansing were also afflicted wills sonte
Sfortu of feeble-mntdedness."

In Tuesday's discussion the lecturer

"The development of spiritual cul-
ture is the highest ideal of assliindivid-

national. Muses was the only mats in
ancient history who attempted to ed-
ucate a station. Today we are always
looking for personal liberty in our ed-
ucation and in our salvation. In the
tose of Muses ouch a question- was
never considered. Their thught al-
ways was of national good.
