Meanwhile, the need for day care centres that are well staffed and well equipped continues to be something everyone talks about and few people do anything about. Concerned people use words like urgent and desperate to describe that need for some families. But they say public opinion is not on their side.

Frame, 2505-5 Ave. S., Tuesday at 8:15 p.m. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I married while still in college. Mom and Dad furnished our apartment and sent us a check every month for two years. We had more than enough to live on, yet they insisted on giving us money for birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fourth of July-any occasion which could be used as an excuse. I have graduated from college and am now working. My Husband is getting a PhD on a federal grant. We have everything we need and we don't need any more financial help. My parents can't understand that we want the satisfaction of doing a few things on our own. Last night my father tried to slip me some money behind my husband's back. I refused to take it. My husband saw him and the four of us got into a terrific hassle. My mother called me "ungrateful." My dad said I was depriving him of his greatest pleasure. The relationship is becoming strained. It has deteriorated into a contest of wills. How can we settle this once and for all?-Poor Little Rich Girl DEAR GIRL: Write your folks a letter and tell them you appreciate their generosity but now you and your husband are able to manage on your own. Explain that they MUST not deny you the satisfaction of earning and achieving, and that prolonged dependency is unhealthy and can be crippling. Ask them not to send any more money gifts. If they disregard your wishes, send the money back. Eventually when they realize you mean it they'll stop trying to bind you to them with hoops of gold. is still a feeling that working mothers are reprehensible people. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press indicates there are more centres than there were a few years ago, and more legislation setting standards for them. The experts say there are still not enough. A recent report from the women's bureau of the federal department of labor says there are now 2.5 million women working in Canada, one million more than in 1960. The Toronto Social Planning Council had 400 calls in one month last summer asking about day care. Howard Clifford of Edmonton says working mothers are not greedy people who needlessly take advantage of day care services. He says a typical program would have 70 per cent of its spaces given to children whose mothers are the sole family support. Mr. Clifford, director of day care services in Edmonton, says day care should also be available to help families through special crises and should be available to children from poor environments. Sue Wolsteinholme, director of a Halifax centre, calls the need for more centres obvious. There are nine of them in the Halifax - Dartmouth area, with 320 children registered. There are an estimated 5,000 to 8,000 children under 14 in the area whose mothers work. Mrs. Wolsteinholme says part of a centre's job is preventing I problems, that governments do not put enough emphasis on preventive care. Many of the people involved in day care work see it as a service that goes far beyond custodial care. They say it should not only provide immediate help for families, but long-range benefits both for children and for society. Joan Rogers of Toronto says: j "I can't see us worrying and fussing about young people at university age if we go on ignoring the under-five group. "In the long run it would be cheaper if governments would help support good day care." Mrs. Rogers is chairman of a newly-formed community day care committee comprising lay and professional people interest- j ed in day care. She has worked as a volunteer for years with a non-profit centre. STie says there is still a strong feeling, "especially among politicians," that day care centres would encourage mothers to go to work when they ought to be home in the kitchen. "But everyone knows the statistics. You just have to take an analysis in any office to find out how many working mothers there are." The committee is considering a pilot project, canvassing an area of Toronto to determine how many people use day care of any kind. NUMBER EXPANDS The number of centres in Canada is growing. There are 116 in Alberta, caring for about 3,500 children. About 90 per cent of them are in Calgary or Edmonton. Ontario has 650 nurseries, 140 of them full-time. There are 172 more licensed nurseries than there were two years ago, but not all are full-time day care centres. St. John's, Nfld., has six centres, all privately operated except for one attached to a hospital. Saint John, N.B., has none, though the social services council is trying to get one started. There are 36 centres in the Greater Vancouver area, about nine times as many as in 1949. A special gap that continues is in the number available for I children under two. There are I few.
