Best toy guide is common sense OTTAWA (CP) -Advice to the toy buyer: Let common sense be your guide and choose toys properly suited to the child's age. That's the experienced view of Barry Watson, engineer for the federal department of con- sumer and corporate affairs, otherwise known as toy-tester. It's his duty to see that the million Canadians spend annually on toys is money safely spent. About new toys were Introduced: in Canada last year, but only after they passed three endurance tests carried out by the depart- ment. But the tests only ensure that toys are safe for children of the age for which they were intended. A toy designed for a nine-year-old might be Physicians criticize colleagues CALGAHY (CP) lack of co operation among doctors caused the failure of a new program last year to reduce birth defects in southern Al- berta, say two physicians who proposed the scheme. Pediatrician Dr. Gerald Hol- tnan and Dr. David Hay, assis- tant director of obstetrics and gynecology at Foothills Hos-! pital, said many family physi- cians rejected it as an intru- sion into their field. The plan proposed all doctors use a common form to screen pregnant patients for conditions that could cause birth defects. The forms were to be as- sessed by a team of special- ists to find "high-risk" mothers who would then be treated by the team or the family physi- cians in consultation with the team. Dr- Hay said in an interview the plan could only work if all doctors co-operated but from some there was a negative res- ponse. "The program never got off the ground because it was poli- tically bad to suggest that fam- ily physicians do not look systematically for risk factors which might predict birth de- fects." Dr. Hounan said the program could have reduced by 50 per cent defects such as palsy, re- tardation, blindness and emo- tional disturbance, which af- flict 10 to 15 per cent of the The effectiveness of such a has been sbowo is England, said Dr. Holman. dir- ector of pediatrics at Foothills Hospital. Birth defects hi women under the English program, which requires screening for risk factors by a group of spe- cialists, has fallen to seven per much dangerous for a child younger than that. The first test the toys must undergo is the drop test- Toys are simply dropped from var- ious heights to make sure they're child-proof. PULL WHEELS Then parts like doll heads and truck wheels go through a push and pull routine to find out how easy it is to pull them off. After being examined for sharp edges and exposed wires, toys are put to the fire test. This one-second burning discovers how easily the toys catch fire. If they pass these tests, the toys go to the lab where the safety of the materials used in their production is evaluated. Materials are checked for harmful substances like bar- ium, cadmium and arsenic. Manufacturers often send a new product to the hazardous products division of the stand- ards branch of the depart- ment for pre-market testing. Thus the manufacturer is ad- vised of any defects in ad- vance of marketing and may more easily rectify the situa- tion. But all toys sold in Canada come under government regu- lation and must pass inspec- tion. A special advisory com- mittee of manufacturing, re- tail, consumer and pediatric people helps the department constantly to alter regula- tions. COLLECT TOYS The department has staff of- ficers across the country who collect non-submitted toys and send them in for inspection. Jim Black, chief of the haz- ardous products division, said he wants to see more safety information made available to the public. He hoped there will be more publications on toys and other potentially haz- ardous products- In the meantime, he warned that existing regulations will accomplish only so much. The responsibility still rested with the buyer to make sure the toy complements the child's mental and physical capabili- ties. He added, though, thaf there is no cause for mass hysteria among toy shoppers. Most products on the market were safe for the age group for which they were intended. NEED ESCALATORS TORONTO (CP) A Toronto woman thinks the present sub- way system should have escal- tors installed in all the stations before any new subway lines are built Mary McLaugalin, a member of the Toronto Harbor Commission who said she is speaking as a private citizen, says the lack of elevators is the one deficiency in the system.
