The ram will mean gram will be a little longer in coming to the elevators since wet weather is holding up harvest on some farms. 'Recreational activities crucial to our society' WINNIPEG (CP) Dr E. J Tyler, a Brandon Universi- ty professor, made a strong plea Monday for the develop- ment of recreation as a "social utility" rather than simply a means of keeping Canadians fit for their jobs. Dr Tyler, head of the un- iversity's psychology department, told the opening session of the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association annual convention that access to leisure activities is crucial to the well-being of Canadian society Without these opportunities, he warned, there will be social disruption and disintegration "which in their extreme can destroy a society as effective- ly and as completely as any war or economic catastrophe." "Expanded access to parks and recreation activities will require the same kind of priorities in resource allocation, planning and operation that are accorded now to other basic necessities such as health services and sanitation and water supplies Traditionally, Dr. Tyler said, recreation was seen as a way of keeping individuals healthy for their jobs or as an economic enterprise built around tourism or the sale of sporting goods Taxi fare dispute results in child falling from cab TORONTO (CP) A 16- month-old Toronto girl is in serious condition in hospital after falling from a moving cab Sunday during a fare dis- pute between the driver and the child's father. Eduardo Vargas, 27, was riding in the front seat of the taxi with his daughter, Jessica, when the driver proprosed that he pay for a trip which normally costs him 40, Mr. Vargas said. "My wife, Aracely, and our 22-day-old son were in the back seat, and Jessica was in the front with said Mr. Vargas "I told the driver where we were headed and he started driving, but after about 300 feet he hadn't turned the meter on, and then he said he wanted for the Mr. Vargas said. "I told him it normally costs to on the meter and was too much. "He then reached across and opened the passenger door as we were turning a corner and told us to get out." When the door was opened Jessica fell to the pavement, police said. Mr. Vargas said the driver stopped and told him to shut up, and then punched him in the mouth, breaking his false teeth and cutting open his mouth. Police said the child's head was crushed between the back wheel of the taxi and the street curb. She suffered a fractured skull and required 18 stitches to close a wound to the back of her head Police have charged Andrew Green Monteith, 57. of Toronto, with criminal negligence and assault caus- ing bodily harm Gerald T. Ford besieged by phone calls ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) From barrooms in Middle America to the salons of Paris come telephone calls to Gerald T. Ford from persons suggesting who should be picked as vice-president. The leading contenders? California Governor Ronald Reagan and Senator Barry Goldwater (Rep. But says Gerald T. Ford: "I try to tell them I'm not the president. I'm Gerald Tierney accoun- tant." The 21-year-old Ford has an Alexandria does President Gerald R. Ford, who lives five miles away but has an unlisted telephone number. Gerald T. Ford, a bachelor, said his phone began ringing, and has not stopped, since the eve of Richard Nixon's resig- nation. "The first few times I thought it was a said Ford. "I played along. But now they're calling at two or three o'clock in the morning. It's a pain in the neck." "Work for most Canadians was the major source of ac- tivities that made their per- sonal lives, and their society, meaningful and purposeful and enjoyable." Today, however, many kinds of work contribute little to the quality of life, he said "In fact, I suspect that the wide range of currently unfill- ed jobs in Canada that are often cited as a basis for condemning various welfare and social assistance programs, are probably meaningless jobs." Dr. Tyler said as little as 20 per cent of the population may be involved in productive jobs at present, and this figure is almost certain to decrease as technology becomes more ad- vanced. "Increasingly, Canadians must look to non work, leisure, recreation activities for the majority of those ex- periences that serve to make an individual's life meaningful, purposeful, tolerable and hopefully en- he said. Already the search for pur- pose in life is reflected by the expansion of pseudo religious cults, mystical societies and fascination with the occult "But the most dramatic data appears in statistics that record a steadily climb- ing incidence of mental il- lness, a steadily rising tide of violence and a radical upsurge in suicide." In his call for priority to recreation as a social utility, Dr Tyler said recreation should be seen in the broadest possible way and should include activities as diverse as patio cooking, learning a second language and skiing.

(CP) The director of the Hudson Institute of New York says he believes Canada should have imposed more rigorous sanc- tions on India when it explod- ed a nuclear device in viola- tion of a bilateral agreement with Canada. Herman Kahn, a policy ad- viser to several governments, told the final session of the an- nual Couchiching Conference Saturday that Canada should have cut off all economic aid and food to India. "You should have been absolutely after India admitted materials taken from a nuclear reactor provid- ed by Canada were used in the explosion last May, said Mr. Kahn. However, J. S. Foster, vice- president of the power program of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., disagreed "The Canadian government left all aid hanging in the bal- ance for about a week but in their opinion it was wrong to interfere with the supply of food and fertilizer to Mr. Foster said.
