Canadian council of youth to combine research., action By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) Children have acquired a champion. The Canadian Council of Chil- dren and Youth (CCCY) has begun a complex, long-term program that combines re- search and pressure for action when that seems necessary. Margery King, the group's ex- ecutive secretary, says it has worked as a consciousness-rais- ing organization but now is pre- >ared to take a stance on prob- ems facing kids. We will be asking what is so- ciety's responsibility to chil- dren. The whole issue we're really concerned about is vhether we regard them as human beings or as possessions of their parents." The CCCY is a national volun- ary organization formed in 1958 primarily to organize confer- ences and seminars to bring to- gether social work, medical and education personnel as well as voluntary groups that work with children and youth. CCCY President Patricia MacKay says the council now considers that anore is required. Informatiou iii various areas will be collected and appraissd and might be bandied in a num- >er of ways. Dr. King said: "We. might use t as consciousness-raising ma- erial for members or decide that this is an area where coun- cil should move into active ad- vocacy. We might press for leg- islative change or new services or for changes in the handling of existing services." The organization's first pro- ject, co-ordinated by Dr. Syd- ney Segal of Vancouver, is child battering and corporal punishment of children. Dr. Xing said: "We thought area, where children are in jeopardy." Mrs. MacKay said corporal punishment in schools will be a part of the study. Another project is a look at the wellbeing of children in "al- ternative forms of such as foster homes or institutions. Project co-ordinator is Dr. S. James Albert of Ottawa. Mrs. MacKay said: "Children rarely have any say as to what happens to them under these circumstances. We will look at who is acting on behalf of the children." CCCY will study the legal rights of the child. Thera will be projects on the quality of chil- dren's television, on infant health, on professional educa- tion and on the child and sports and physical fitness. Mrs. MacKay said the organi- zation will ask whether children are bsing exploited in heavily organized junior sports. "Is there too much emphasis on excellence rather than on physical fitness? Dr. King is on the planning body for a meeting to be bald at Queen's University in Kingston in May." Dr. King says the CCCY has some federal funds, and hopes to raise more around each spe- cific project. of local ka> II a The Past Matrons of Maple Leaf Chapter No. 7 OES, will meet Wednesday at p.m at the home of Mrs. Agnes Peebles.

(AP) A key hormone produced by the thymus gland is directly related to the process of ag- ing, University of Texas scien- tists reported here. The scientists said that Wood levels of thi hormone, called thymosin, decrease dramati- cally with age and that this ap- pears to be a major factor in the aging process. Lowered thymosin levels con- tribute to aging by retarding the ability of the body's natur- al defence mechanism, the immune system to comibat dis- ease, said Dr. Allan Goldstein. "It has been Gold- stein said, "that thymcsin lev- els decrease significantly be- tween the ages of 25 to 45 in Annual meet for IODE EDMONTON (CP) Small- er families are largely res- ponsible for the lack of young women in organizations such as IODE, Libby Fumerton of Lethbridge told the group's an- nual convention here. She said that 40 years ago grandmothers and aunts were available in the home to free young wives from household duties and enable them to join volunteer organizations. Mrs. Fumerton, an IODE life member, also said people tend to overlook the economic aspects of being a volunteer. "It costs money to be a vol- untary worker, and you also have to sacrifice time and little things in personal living." She said IODE must focus its attention on wider concerns and "change with the times." CHANGING ROLE: There will be a continuing role in society for women's organizations such as the IODE but they will need to present a changed image to attract younger supporters, says Hen- riette Aubin, assistant dean of j women at the University of Al- berta. Mrs. Aubin told the provin- cial IODE convention she does not see such established groups "going by the board." They provided a stability and dimension of experience that enthusiastic young groups did not have. normal individuals. This direct evidence provides a testable hypothesis that decreased im- munity with age is due to a de- fect or inability of the Ihymus gland to produce thymosin." "Goldstein, 35-year-old director of the biochemistry division at the University of Texas medical branch at Galveston, described the research to the 57th annual meeting of the Federation of American Societies for Ex- perimental Biology. "We Goldstein said, "to find a way to increase s patient's immunological re- sponse to diseases by manipu- lating the amount of thymosin in the blood. We know that the injection of mice with thymosin increases their immunity and resistance to disease, and we have good reason to suppose it will do the same in man." The thymus gland, which is beneath the breast bone, appar- ently is the master gland of the immune system, Goldstein said. Thymosin, he said, appears to be the controlling agent of the part of the immune system con- cerned with what is called "cell-mediated the resistance to viral and fungal infections, organ transplants and cancers: Goldstein told a news confer- ence that patients with HOd- gkins disease and chronic leu- kemia, both forms of cancer, have low blood levels of thyme- sin. "Recent experimental and clinical Goldstein said, "have shown that the failure of the thymus gland to function properly is a major factor in a number of debilitating and often fatal diseases of children and adults. This includes a wide va- riety of auto-immune diseases and cancsr." An auto-immune disease is one in which the body's defence mechanism, specifically the white blood cells processed by the thymus gland, fails to rec- ognize its own tissue and tries to destroy it as though the tis- sue were a foreign invader.
