    In the 20's our mental institutions had somewhat unsofisticated diagnostic concepts.

    We had:

    Imbeciles Grades 1 to 3
    followed by

    Idiots Grades 1 to 3
    followed by

    Morons Grades 1 to 3.

    So it was better to be a moron class 1 than an idiot class 3.
    Where is belmore?
