CAROUSEL KNITTING SHOP Phone 328-4143 j BANFF, Alta. (CPj Toy- makers are misleading the pub- lic with claims that their prod- ucts are educational, Todd Ris- ley, a psychologist at the Uni- versity of Kansas, said here. "All claims for educational toys are groundless." Dr. Ris- ley said in an interview at the j fifth Banff international confer- ence on behavior modification. Some tojs may be education-i al, but manufacturers have yet) to produce scientific evidence to support claims that children learn something from playing with them, he said. ''The whole point is that ad- vertising toys as being educa- tional is fraudulent not be- cause they are not educational, but because no one has ever shown them to be. am perfectly convinced Pre-School Kindergarten General Stewart School April 30-May 25 Student registration will be April 16-April 19 far further information contact school at 328-1201 9 a.m. to p.m. that some toys may be educa- tional. But I am concerned that toys are claimed to be educa- tional and are being sold on that basis.'' He advised parents to look for toys that interest their chil- dren, rather than be influenced by advertisers who say their toy will help children read fas- ter or remember the alphabet. Toys should be bought simply as toys. Dr. Risley has been conduct- ing an experiment since 1971 to find out what types of toys most delight and occupy chil- dren. His Kansas project, which has already tested 300 different toys on about 350 children of differ- ent backgrounds, has produced a few guidelines for parents who want to choose the right toy for their child, he reported. I "You only need to give the child a chance to use the toy. If he plays with it for about 10 minutes, then there's a good chance he will return to it day after daj.''

(CP) Insti-j tutions for the elderly often! force patients into inactivity i and hopelessness instead of en-, couraging activity, psychiatrist i Robert Kahn of the University of Chicago said here. never fail to- get nauseat-! ed whenever I visit a home for the he said in an inter- view during the International Conference on Behavior Modi- fication. Too many residents just sit) abcut staring into emptiness, confirming the public stereotype of all old people as on a down- ward slide into mental and phy- sical helplessness. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes The truth is that many have been made ''old" by the insti- tution, Dr. Khan said. we do for them in the way of services tends to bring out their dependancy and make them immature. ''When we go into an institu- tion, we see people just sitting around and say, 'that's the way old people but in fact we're seeing the effects of the institution." In such circumstances, pat- ients are overcome by a sense of powerlessness and become withdrawn, apathetic and deter- iorate mentally, he said. Their death rate is often higher than those of comparable age in more independent surroundings. A solution, he said, would be to promote "out-reach" pro- grams to deliver care in the homes and communities of the elderly so they would not be forced to institutions.
