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,

While the two men go to prepare the contract, Jean falls asleep and dreams this very unusual play Dr. Wilfred Steele is the proprietor of Wildwood Sanitorium, a questionable institution for the feeble-minded. Sonia Petroff, the head nurse, has allowed herself to become a victim of the doctor's hypnotic power through infatuation. Rose Colfax, a lovely girl in her teens, is brought to the sanltorium by a de- signing aunt who desires that Rose be declared insane for mercen- ary reasons. Rosefs beau, Clyde Loring, and a friend, Eve Pat- terson, feel that there is something amiss when Rose is secreted from her home and follow her to the institution. There they find a succession of the most gruesome chills awaiting them. Suddenly interest turns to Jean Heather, a delightful ' assistant nurse, and Skip Tolliver, a young man of all work. The audience find them taking a particular interest in all that is going on. And in the two colored servants, spirits.
