During 1970, the department awarded about S475.000 in grants and scholarships, he said. About of this went in scholarships to in- dividuals and the largest pos- lion of the grants was slightly more than branes. WANT FULL LIFE The department makes a special effort to encourage groups that wort with pre- school and schoul-agc chil- dren, Mr. Kaasa .said. "If you reach young chil- dren, they'll bring a creative approach to their whole life. Thoy'll never be satisfied with loss than a full life whether at work or at play."

She taught us to skate, to design, to try out for anything we wanted." ivirs. .Mahon was one of the first to encourage him in his desires lo act and he later studied acting and dancing. Now, at. 4fi, he is known throughout Canada as an actor, having performed on national radio and television programs and on stage in sev- eral provinces.

"Now I'm trying to open doors to life for other chil- dren. If my department open one door for one kid, it's worth while." A ppg neurologist has devised a; diagnostic technique using elec-; Ironic impulses which he says; will pioneer detet-iion methods for recognizing certain types of .strokes. Dr. Kimura, 36, an assist- ant prrii'-sor of internal medi- cine at the I'liiversiLy of Mani- toba medical school, has been using the technique for about years, testing more than J.COO persons. The Kimura U'M. developed with the aid (if grant.- from Ihe jMedk'.'il Resr.m'h Council of Canada and the Canadian .Multi- ple Sclerosis .Society, is based on the time it takes nerve irn- pulses {o travel from Ihe eye lid to the brainstem in the back of j tire neck and hack to the muscle j which makes people blink. Dr. Kimura said the test is painless ami lakes less than half j an hour. j lie said the activity involved in I In- eye blink can; help in identifying (he presence nnd precise location of strokes in the brains'em. The hrain.stem connects the brain to {he spinal cord and controls a number of involuntary actions, including respiration and the blink reflex. A blood clot that iiuerl'ercs with normal blood flow through the brahistem vessels is likely to produce an abnormality in the mechanism governing the eye! blink. The native of Kyoto. Japan, said to check for strokes, he produces involuntary blinks by sending precisely-timed electric signals through a stimulator resting on the surface of i.he pa- j ticnt's skin, just above the eye. The electrical activity pro-; duced by the muscle itself when ii caufes a blink is picked up by L'lecirode.s placed over the right and left eye muscles and then amplified and recorded on an; oscilloscope where it is photo- graphed for analysis. Dr. Kimura's studies wore first made on about 30 healthy patients to determine the nor- mal time needed for this rapid- fire blink sequence and later proved successful in spotting j problem areas in patients with multiple sclerosis, a disease fre- (jiiently involving the brainstem. lie said tno test requires no spccia 1 equipment dher than that ordinarily used in nerve j conduction studies but has proved to be a useful supple- ment to help doctors assess pro- gressive changes in brainstem function. clitics in News GLASGOW iCP) Some may think the family car is noisy enojgh as it is. But authorities at the Uni- versity of Glasgow say they hope to persuade automobile manufacturers to add ye' .'in- other sound !o their products. One of the university's re- searchers has invented a talk- ins speedometer. Not only will the device tell you the speed, say the author- ities here, i; can also sVnii out the oil pressure, motor temperature and other critical indicators. In a statement issued lion- day night, the university said the new device is the work of a British researcher in the natural philosophy depart- ment, John Travcrs Lloyd. ".As a speedometer, the model ffivc-s verbal, accurate eMpression to readings from lo ton mJes an the statement said. The university said the new device would be helpful lo those who find they are dis- h-acted while driving by hav- ing to look at the speedometer or other signals on the dash- board. It might also help drivers in fog conditions, for example, where full attention be given to road conditions and traffic. The statement did not give rieidls of the speedome- ter's design. ANTWERP.
