Chicago, July 14. -- Dr. George A. Zeller, of Peoria, III., member of the Illinois board of administration, took issue today with other speakers at the meeting here of alienists and neurologists, when he denied that insanity is on the increase. He asserted that an apparent increase was due to improved conditions that resulted in a greater proportion of such cases being reported.
Dr. Julius Grinker, of Chicago, said that the primitive custom of casting defective children into the river again might become a custom if better remedies could not be discovered.
Resolutions were adopted condemning the use of liquor and urging public hospitals for inebriates.
