Amputee children off to slopes i COLLINGWOOD, Ont. (CP) Thirty amputee children are skiing on Osier Bluffs this winter with the help of 30 I professional ski instructors and crutch skis. i The teachers, members of the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance, are training the children on a one to one basis. Instead of ski poles, the children use crutch skis a' piece of equipment that ends i in a mini ski and is operated by cables from a hand grip. The crutch ski helps the skier brake effectively and negotiate turns, manoeuvers almost impossible on one ski. The instructors work for Track Three Ski, an organiza- tion for those who depend on crutches to walk, which is assisted by Ontario govern- ment grants and equipment from ski manufacturers. The children received basic ski instruction at the Crippled Children's Society before tackling the slopes. The course lasts 10 weeks and also teaches the skiers to cope with j-lifts, t-bars and chair lifts. Some of the skiers have done so well they have left the beginner slopes behind to find something more challenging.

Mrs. Daryl Sturrock, who for three years has tried un- successfully to establish a local rehabilitation centre for women, is now fired with the need of staying with the dying dur- ing their final hours of life. She reports she has seen too many dying people shunned and left alone, just when they need the company of others most. She claims present hospital and medical staff are so highly organized they have ceased to be human in their attitudes towards the dying. Consequently socie- ty in general has adopted a callous attitude, she says. Mrs. Sturrock is prepared to accept speaking engagements to air her views on this matter.
