THE 1959 SENIOR TRIP TO FARIBAULT
On May 10, 1959, Mr. Sorknes took his senior Social Problems
class to Faribault, Minnesota to visit the state institutions.
We have studied, during the past year, the education of the blind,
deaf, and the feeble-minded. It was very interesting to visit
these state institutions.
The institution for the feeble-minded was the first place we
visited. A social worker took us through the administration build-
ing and then to the various buildings where the different types of
the feeble-minded were kept. She explained to the class the dif-
ferent types of inmates, those where heredity was the cause and
those where the mental defectiveness were a result of secondary
causes, such as high fevers, accidents, and injuries. We visited
the industrial classes where those of higher mental ability were
working. , '
We next visited the institution for the blind. We gathered
in the chapel where Mr. Burhow, the principal, gave a talk on the
education of the blind. He had a girl from the second grade read
for us from her readers. The librarian showed us the school lib-
rary. She explained the system by which the blind throughout the
state may receive books from the library. She also told us that
no postage is charged for carrying these books through the malls.
We then visited the school for the deaf. The principal,
Miss Quinn, took us to the first, second, and third grades. She
explained the process of teaching a child to talk who,1s unable
to hear, The process is a purely mechanical one and a great deal
of patience is necessary in teaching the deaf to talk.' She showed
us a girl they have there who was born both deaf and blind. Her,
case is similar to that of Helen Keller. They have worked with
this girl for three years before any noticable progress was made.
She will be sent to Boston next yean'where more specialized instru-
ction for both the blind and deaf is provided. We were then taken
through the upper grades and high school. The principal took us
through the various trade schools where the students may learn
EL trade 0
On our way home we stopped at the Woolen Mills, where we saw
how Faribo Blankets are made from the time the wool is carded to
the packing of the finished blankets in boxes. Most of the wool
in this factory is from our native land, about one-fourth of the
wool used 1s imported.
Our next stop was at Owatonna where we visited the Josten
Company. There we saw the process of making rings and trophies
for schools. No matter how small or how large a ring is, it must
go through the same process in making,
