Hatfield Says Institutions Are
: Remarkably Free of Politics
Secretary of State Mark Hatfield,
, in a statement concerning Mental
Health Week, Saturday said that
Oregon mental institutions have
been "remarkably free of political
influence and their progress in a
17 year period shows great strides
in public education."
'Mental health is no place for
partisan politics and it is to Ore
gon's credit that a change in two
of the three members of the Board
of Control has not resulted in un
desirable uprooting of programs
of progress." Hatfield said.
Oregon has risen from 4fith place
In national rankings of patient-employe
ratios in its state mental
institutions to '23rd over the past
15-year period, Hatfield said citing
statistics from the American Psy
chiatric Association and the Na
tional Association for Mental
Health. "Oregon is oh center
among the 48 states with a 3.8
patient-employe ratio which is one
indication of adequacy," Hatfield
said. "In 1939 Oregon ranked 46th
with a 10-1 ratio when the national
average was better by one half."
"H is not without some benefit
that we see doctors from our

mental institutions leaving for pri
vate practice because their com
munities benefit from the experi
ence they have received." Hatfield
observed. "Their contribution in
treating private patients before the
illness is far enough advanced to
require confinement in a state in
stitution is all to the good."
"Statistically. Oregon institution
doctors may receive a basic salary
that is comparable at first glance
to other state; but the take-home
pay and the cost-of-living factors
must be given weight when evalu
ating our programs," Hatfield said.
the Secretary of State said
citizens should avail themselves of
the Open House opportunity at the
State Hospital Sunday.
Hatfield said that a new em
phasis on out-patient treatment in
recent years has saved thousands
of dollars for tax payers by mak
ing available services to those
who can be worked with before
their case is aggravated enough
to require full time residence in a
state hospital. Those who would
argue for economy should expand
that program as a long-run saving

Older Adults, ChildrenMost
Frequent Auto Traffic Victims
Adults over 65 years old and
children are the most frequent vic
tims of car-pedestrian accidents in
Oregon, says a report by the state
Traffic Safety Commission.
Of 53 pedestrian deaths in the
slate during 1956, the statistics
show, 21 were persons over 65 and
11 were children under 15.
The older group are found to be
the worst offenders in violation of
traffic regulations, and studies in
Oregon and other states indicate
that many are persons who have
never driven cars and who do not
realize that it is often hard for a
driver to see persons at night who
are dressed in dark clothing.
Mainly the violations arc jay
walking, crossing streets against
signals, and the assumption that
traffic will stop.
