Extensive research Into the cost
to the state of Oregon and to vari
ous social agencies of caring for
feeble-minded cases Is being done
this year at Willamette university
by Darlow Johnson assisted by
Francis Flint, both students of Dr.
S. B. Laughlin.
Johnson is finding as he investi
gates case records at Fairvlew
home here .that certain families
have produced large numbers of
feeble - minded wards for state
care. He is tracing their records
back to the counties from whence
they came and almost Invariably is
discovering that the families were
a burden on their home commun
ity before they were committed to
the feeble-minded school here.
Johnson is seeking facts to deter
mine how far hereditary influ
ences produce teeble-mindedness.
He is continuing work begun
last year by Ronald Hewitt, Wil
lamette '33. Painstaking care is
needed in exploring the records
and gathering pertinent facts
therefrom. Johnson plans to spend
400 hours work on his project dur
ing the next semester.
