Drop in and talk it over! r (M!lll fr 3 One hundred and sixty persons have been sexually sterilized through the Utah State Training School at American Fork in the past five years, reported Dr. H. H. Ramsay, superintendent, to the Board of Trustees of the institution at a recent board meeting. These operations op-erations have been performed un der Section 89 of the Utah Stat-! utes enacted by the Legislature in 1929, which permits the sexual sterilization ster-ilization of mentally deficient per sons after complying with elabor ate procedure to safeguard the constitutional con-stitutional rights of the individual to be sterilized. - f i The Utah sterilization statute permits the Sterilization. of inmates of the Training School by order of the Board of .Trustees even though protested toy the parents. But in no case so far has the case of an inmate been appealed to the Dis trict Courts. A period of educa tional preparation usually con vinces the parents' of the advisability advisabil-ity of the operation. In nearly all cases the parents have cooperated heartily in the procedure, Dr. Ram say reported, and no legal protest ; has yet been registered. Of those sterilized to date, 98 males have undergone the opera tion of vasectomy and 64 females have undergone salpingectomy. No organs are removed by these oper ations and no fatalities or serious complications have resulted in any case. The operations have been performed at the Salt Lake County Hospital at the request of the Training School In addition to the 160 already sterilized, there are 99 others upon whom the legal procedure has been completed and who are waiting for space in the hospital. Dr. Ramsay pointed out that there are no has pltal facilities at the Training School for surgery or general emergencies. emer-gencies. His report includes a re quest for $50,000 for a small hos pital and infirmary unit which would enable better medical care for the Inmates and which would permit speeding up the sterilization program considerably. Ninetyslx of the persons steri lized have been permitted to return to their homes or to take employ ment away from the institution un der the supervision of the School social worker or the public welfare workers in the communities. The remaining 64 still require further socialization and institutional care. Dr. Ramsay also reported on 99 cases discharged from the School in recent years and requested that the Board confirm the discharges, which, action was taken. Of these 65 have been sterilized and have been making a good adjustment away from the institution long enough to Justify their complete release re-lease from further supervision. Since the School opened in 1931, 41 other cases have been discharged dis-charged after having been transferred trans-ferred to the State Hospital because be-cause of being psychotic in addition addi-tion to being mentally deficient. j The remaining 56 of those whose cuscnarge was coniirmed were returned re-turned to their homes because of being erroneously committed or because be-cause Dr. Ramsay was of the opinion opin-ion that many smaller children I could be better cared for at home while the institution is as crowded as it Is. At present there are 664 persons enrolled at the institution. Of these, 178 are on parole and under the supervision of the social worker and public welfare workers. Sixty-five of these have been sterilized, and the others are subject to recall to the institution for that purpose. Dr. Ramsay reported that the de mands for care of additional chil dren at the School has continued unabated since the founding of the Institution; IPsychological service has been rendered throughout this period to. all persons and agencies seeking guidance with problem chil dren and adults. A total of 1,333 examinations have been made in the nine year period. From these tests most of the children in the School have been selected. Since 1936, there have been 331 mentally defective persons located, of whom 145 have been admitted to the institution, in-stitution, 'and 186 are on the waiting wait-ing list. A considerable number ex amined previous to 1936 are also on the waiting list, bringing the total waiting list to over 300. In summarizing these figures, Dr. Ramsay , pointed out that to date 995 persons have been admitted at some time, or another and over 300 other mentally defective persons are known through the psychological clinic, bringing the total mental defectives' de-fectives' known in the state to somewhere around 1200, making allowances al-lowances for those committed erroneously er-roneously and those who have died subsequently. In this connection the report points out that occasionally persons per-sons known as defective delinquents delinquents who resist all treatmentare treat-mentare sometimes committed to the School against the better judgment judg-ment of the administration. These individuals are a seriously upsetting factor in an educational Institution Intended for children who do not require close confinement and penitentiary peni-tentiary discipline. There is no logical place available for them in the State, and yet they are the most dangerous type of persons to be free, ia the communities. The report re-port recommends that some provision provi-sion be made for the permanent custody of the defective delinquent Dr. Ramsay reported that the custodial building for helpless boys being constructed under a W P A grant is well under way, a structure costing approximately $30,000 and capable of housing sixty, children. He points out, however, urgent need for several other buildings In order to care for some of the large waiting wait-ing list and to further segregate the Institution population. He requests the support of the Board of Trustees Trust-ees In obtaining funds to meet the sponsor's contribution to W P A projects for additional farm colony for older boys whose homes are broken, an infirmary building for girls similar to the one under construction, con-struction, a hospital, and an enlarged en-larged heating plant. The estimated esti-mated amount needed by the sponsor spon-sor for these buildings is $90,000 in addition to the maintenance appropriation appro-priation request of $391,000.00 for the biennium. Some Increase in maintenance funds Is necessary in view of the prospect of an increase of 100 in the enrollment during the coming year.
