"Here is corner of lobby of Women's Psychopathic Ward at San Antonio State Hospital. Nurse Edna Wilson stands by checker table. Pleasant rooms help mentally ill; were dreary at founding 50 years ago. The days of bedlam and the straitjacket are gone. To prove the fact, the San Antonio State Hospital will hold open house for interested visitors Tuesday in cooperation with National Hospital Day."
