3. Feeblemindedness, Imbecility and Idiocy As in the aetiology of epilepsy alcoholism of parents has an important part, as it also has for feeblemindedness. e. 75 %; drunkenness of father at conception is reported 57 times. J. VoiSIN ( 1897) reports that alcoholism appears most frequently in the statistics of idiocy and that drunkenness also causes idiocy in the descendants. EcHEVERRIA ( 1881 p. 491) observes that of idiocy the direct cause is parental alcoholism in contrast with epilepsy and other nervous disorders, which would appear together with alcoholism alternately in the families of alcoholics.

PoLISCH ( 1927a) finds among 60 chronic alcoholics (not clelirium tremens) 64 % with abnormal dispositions. PouscH does not mean cases where psychosis arose later, but psychopaths (epileptoid-irritable, over-sensitive, epilepsy, unbalanced). PouscH thinks that such psychopathical deficiency and not a psychotical disposition is the basis of chronic alcoholism (contra STÖCKER). Therefore chronic alcoholics are not latent sufferers from clementia praecox. Of various nervous diseases, hereditary transmission through alcoholism of the parents is named.

The results of the investigations by GuscHMER (1916) pupil of RüDIN, in which he found among parents of 54 epileptics 16 times alcoholism, herewith correspond. He found only seven times alcoholism among the 90 fathers of the cousins. SNELL is uncertain either of the significance of alcoholic heredity as a germ injury or that for instance a hereditary influence at one time produces epilepsy and another time intemperance. The information given by SNELL on the basis of investigations of W AUSCHKUHN made at the genealogical section of the Research Institution at Münich ,that chronic alcoholics have not always epileptic children is noteworthy (see also RümN page 35).
