OllAL instruction at the state school for the deaf, the
method championed by J. Lyman Steed, superintendent,
is preferred by a majority of the parents of pupils enrolled,
to the less modern method of manual training, replies to
questionnaires indicated according to a report filed with the
state board of control Tuesday.
Parents of 78 children replied that they favored oral
training, parents of four children expressed a preference for
both: oral and manual tralning.O
while the parents of one child fa
vored manual work only. There
are IK pupils in the deaf school,
with' 93 enrolled in the oral de
partment. The replies to the question
naires were considered significant
by the board of control, for the
reason that Mr. Steed recently
was charged by members of the
Oregon State Deaf association
and other organizations with at
tempting to feature oral work in
the institution over the protest of
the parents.
Population at State
Hospital Growing
A report of Dr. R. E. Lee Stein
er, superintendent of the Oregon
state hospital, showed a popula
tion of 2040 at that Institution
on May 31. Of the 80 outgoing
patients during the month of
May, 53 were classified as dis
charges. The unprecedented
number of outgoing patients was
due to the fact that the veterans
hospital at American Lake is now
equipped to care for ex-service
men needing mental treatment.
The population in the Salem state
hospital is the largest in history,
according to the records.
Dr. W. D. McNary, superinten
dent of the eastern .Oregon state
hospital, reported a reduction of
four In population during the
month of May. This Institution
had a population of 880 on May
1.. The hospital has accommoda
tions for 1100 patients.
