The solution would be in the formation of "child development centres" which would detect and treat problems before they could cause life-long handicaps, he said. Facilities are not available to treat specific diseases such as hemophilia and cystic fibrosis, he said, and the province is behind in identification of "high-risk" pregnancies, care, transport and diagnosing of the new born, early identification of hearing deficiencies and in programs for emotionally disturbed or those with physical or learning handicaps. Dr. Holman said in an interview last week that too often severe difficulties are not discovered until the child enters school, often too late for effective cure. "In the future, we could prevent many of these conditions in children yet unborn. "I cannot feel the public Is quite indifferent to this. I feel they must be unaware of these dangers. "Pressure from the community" was the only source with! the potential for changing the' situation. Dr. Holman said he would be surprised at the slwrtcomings in less developed areas but in Alberta it seemed more emphasis was being placed on projects other than child health. For mal accident prevention programs and genetic counselling also seemed non-existent. A child development centre would complement hospitals by providing large out-patient services and specialized care using psychologists, social workers, speech therapists and brain and eye experts. Dr. Holman said a basic problem in Alberta in the past has been that services were concerned more with remedial care and not with preventive. Mysterious girl stirs speculation EUCLA, Australia (Reuter) - At least four theories emerged today to explain the appearance of a mysterious blonde recently seen running wild through the wastes of western Australia wearing only a fur mini skirt. The handful of residents in Eucla speculate that the Nul-larbor Nymph, as she is called, may be: -A girl from Sydney who tired of big-city life and came to dwell among the kangaroos; -A university graduate communing with nature and studying local flora and fauna; -Or even an Englishman who was reported missing on the treeless Nullarbor plain about 15 months ago. In any event, the reported sightings have put remote Eucla back on the map-almost a century since it was a "big" community of 100 people and site of a booster station on Australia's first east-west telegraph line. Journalists around the world have been calling Eucla on its only telephone, even though some skeptics suggest the whole tiling is a ruse to publicize the Amber Motel- Eucla's only inhabited building. Ron Sells, 31, who described himself as a professional shooter and trapper, said today he had seen the girl twice. OTTAWA (CP) - Comment-1 ing on the latest leak of a cabi- j net document, Prime Minister ' Trudeau said Thursday that as long as there are crooks, and persons ready to condone crooks, these things will happen. But in replying to a series of Commons questions on the issue he said he hoped a way could be found to make various government documents available to the public. Gerald W. Baldwin (PC-Peace River) had asked assurance that there would be no further leaks. But the prime minister said he could not guarantee the future conduct of any individual. Mr. Trudeau made similar comments when asked about earlier leaks. The latest leak involved a cabinet document on northern development in the next decade. It was published in Thursday's Globe and Mail. Stanley Knowles (NDP-Winnipeg North Centre) asked whether Mr. Trudeau had considered appointing George Bain, the Globe and Mail correspondent who wrote about several of the documents, to the privy council so he would be sworn to secrecy. Before the daily question period began, Mr. Baldwin unsuccessfully sought the unanimous consent of the House to propose that the government introduce legislation to provide more freedom of information for Canadians. There was also a tongue-in-oheek motion from Frank Howard (NDP-Skeena) commending Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien for making the document available and expressing the hope that other ministers would follow a similar course. Mr. Trudeau told George Hees (PC-Prince Edwaird-Has-tings) that ministers are thoroughly investigating their de-partments to discover the source of the leaks. Mr. Hees asked whether it now was time to call in the Find bodies BLUE RIDGE, Alta (CP) -The bodies of Patsy Brick, 29, and Robert Duncan, 24, were discovered here in a car and police said a faulty exhaust system is suspected as the cause of death. Their car was discovered near this community, 85 miles northwest of Edmonton. Police said the two Blue Ridge residents may have died of carbon monoxide poisoning. RCMP. Mr. Trudeau thanked the Conservative MP for the suggestion that the "police be put on those who publish leaks." He told Ran Harding (NDP- Kootenay West) it was his understanding that the document was a memorandum and not a cabinet decision. There were many documents relating to the government's goals and objectives. Marcel Lambert (PC-Edmonton West) asked whether the prime minister considered copyrighting documents to prevent outside publication. Mr. Trudeau said there were legal and other aspects that would first have to be considered.
