But, they won't be saying goodbye to the friends they me here for Lethbridge high school students will leave the city Aug. 1 for a one-week visit to the east coast city and they'll bunk with the same peo- ple who stayed with them here. It's all part of the federal government's Young Voyager program, but the local Rotary Club played a major role in organizing the trip and activi- ties for the visiting youngsters.

The charge against Alexander Robert John Sawers of Leth- jridge was ordered dropped by Lethbridge provincial Judge A. H. Elford after he ruled the Crown had not provided the defendant sufficient time to prepare for the trial after he received an analysis of mater- .als in his possession believed :o be illegal drugs. Judge Elford ruled the Crown had had a 13-day period in vhich the report could have uecn delivered, and finally serv- ed them only 22 hours before the trial was to proceed. In any trial or charge involv- ng either possession or traffick- ng in illegal drugs the accused person has the right lo request and see a laboratory analysis of the alleged drugs he stands accused of possessing of or sell- ng, before proceeding to trial.

V of L summer school busy It looks like a record-setting year for summer school attend ance at the University of Leth- bridge. In fact, summer school attendance figures may almost match last year's regular uni- versity enrolment. There were 255 students at- tending Summer Session 1, an increase of about 75 over last year. Summer Session 2, which ends Tuesday, has 479 students and, a similar enrolment is ex- peeled for Summer Session 3 which starts July 2G and ends Aug. 18. The regular large percentage of teachers is taking summer school courses but a number of arts and science students are staying in school trying to fin- ish their degree requirements a bit sooner. It is expected that more courses will be offered in Sum- mer Session 1 next year be- cause of the significant enrol- ment increase this year. Pre-school clinics will help children By JOE MA Herald Slaff Writer The government will provide services to pre-school age children for early detection of all types of handicaps through- out the province within two or three years, Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development said Friday. Addressing delegates to the Youth Across Canada With The Mentally Retarded conference at the Holiday Inn, Mr. Craw- ford said, "We hope to have mobile units for such diagnos- tic service within two or three years, so the small communi- ties in the province will also be entitled to this service." Mr. Crawford reviewed what the government has been doing for the mentally retarded in the past, and said if the gov- ernment's action sometimes seems to be slow, it is because "we don't want to take hasty moves." When the Lougheed govern- ment came into office, he said, the waiting list at the Alberta School Hospital (for retarded children) in Red Deer was 600. "A child had to wait six or eight years before he could be admitted." Now the waiting list has been cut by one-quarter, he said. "We think it is a great injus- tice that in the past, parents of mentally retarded children had to pay S2 a day at the Alberta School he said. "This fee has been elim- inated since June I At Dorothy Gooder Schoa earlier in the day, the delegates heard David Parker, recreation consultant for the National In- stitute on Mental Retardation speaking on recreation for the mentally retarded; and Dr. A R.

Mr. Parker said the menlallj retarded have more leisure time and should be taught to be "recrcatively independent." A misconception about men- tal retardation is that "if one is mentally retarded, hi Is physically be point- ed out. "Recreation is a very person- al Mr. Parker said. "You cannot recreate others- all you can do is to provide an environment in which the men- tally retarded may find a rec- reation experience." He disapproved of the shel- tered method and told the youlh workers not to "make the as- sumption the retarded have limitations before giving them an opportunity to prove their abilities." There should be integrated recreation whenever possible. "Take four or five mentally retarded children to a zoo, don't take 50 all at be said. Dr. Stewart outlined the causes o[ mental retardation and possible avenues to prevent it. Causes can be grouped under three headings: genetic, birth injuries and post-natal. Post- natal causes include socio-eco- nomic deprivation and this is why on a pro-rata basis the In- dians and the low-income peo- ple have more mentally re- tarded. Dr. Stewart said more chil- dren with mongolism are borm most often when the mother is under the age of 20 or over tie age of 30 or 33. He said the present scope of knowledge limits practice to preventive treatment and gen- eral treatment. "Specific treat- ment, not now but maybe in the future, will repair damage to the he said. Dr. Stewart said early detec- tion is important in treatment. Infections, injuries and poi- soning may also lead to men- tal retardation, he said. The conference ends today at Dorothy Gooder.
