It would be for this man, when he was appoint, ed, to work out all the details. The deputation was of the opinion that, something should be done in cities for backward children by having special classes. In rep'ly to their request that statistics should be kept of defectives, Mr. Boyle informed the deputatibn that a very careful survey of the schools had been made last year and he stated that when the government had been able'to obtain their mental defective specialist he would be able to work out with the different school boards a scheme.whereby they would be able to apply a proper test to ascertain whether a child was defective or only, a little retarded in mental development. . �  .
