It seems although I've been granted exclusive driving privileges in the sporty little car, and hubby-to-be has been relegated to manoeuvering a big red van, he still reserves the right to baseball 'claw- sies'. As a child, I always lost out in that battle of first to bat, and the bad luck has filtered into adult life. He steadfastly claims the little car needs a bit more 'extra care including fre- quent tune-ups, oil changes and other items I consider trivialities. But, being a person who al- lows him occasional fanciful indulgences, I relinquish all claim to the car for a day of two and sorrowfully' watch it being escorted to a local garage.

Efforts to contact Mm and solicit a lift aU the way were Unproductive so I curled up in my suede coat, glanced at my suede shoes and jumped into the downpour. Halfway I realized my shoes had never been water-proofed and a hurried look at my coat confirmed my belief that it too had es- caped similar treatment. By the time 1 arrived, my feet had been dyed blue from the shoes, my hair was a soppy Stringy mess and my mood was bartering on fold. the ride to the garage im- proved my disposition, the car was ready and waiting, and rather than engage in a prolonged goodbye in the rain, almost hubby dashed back to work leaving me in charge of the beast.

Y Children's activity centre alternative to institution Handicapped play centre Children play ot the activity centre for youngsters with severe mental arid physi- cal handicaps at the Association for the Dependant Handicapped in Edmonton. The centre attempts to involve children in group activities, skill developmerrt and mus- cular therapy. A unique tispeet of the cSnlre is that each child's mother works tW6 full days a month in the program. The activity centre accommodates 13 children ori a regular basis. EDMONTON (CP) ente of children in the Ed- montot area who have severe mental and physical handi- have only two choices with regard to their care. They can place Die child in an institution like the Alberta School Hospital in Deer or keep him home without the Chance for a break of holiday for the rest of the family. The Association for the De- pendent Handicapped has been working to provide pat- ents with sootier choice. It operates an activity Centre in Edmonton and its Main objective is to establish a community residence where children cari live full-time or part-time according to the family's needs. The 90-member group was formed in, 1971 by parents whd were unwilling to send their Children to Red Deer, but Whose children have been rejected by agencies in Ed- monton; Agencies for the retarded witi generally not accept chil- dren with severe physical handicaps, white centres for the physically handicapped cannot accommodate ed children. TASK ENORMOUS Florence McKie, president ct the association, says the task of caring for a child with multiple handicaps is enormous. "The physical demands alone are tremendous, the child must be lifted in and out of a wheelchair, carried up stairs and lifted into "Then there is the constant strain of comrttUnknUflg with your child because these chil- dren can't talk, A mother must be tuned in and caring for tin, child becomes a 24- boor job without relief.

WORK INDIVIDUALLY The staff, supplemented by volunteers, woA with the children on a one-to-one basis in group activities and skill devlopttent. Muscular therapy is carried out under the supervision of a therapist from Olenrose Hospital. "Through the activities we hope to give the children a sense of says centre supervisor May Diver. "They never had the feeling of belonging to a group before as they've always been segre- gated from other children." The supervisor says one of the unique aspects of the centre is the degree to which parents are involved in its op- eration. Each mother works two full days a month at the centre. Most of the furniture has been donated by parents and fathers have built special equipment. It can handle only 13 chit dren on a regular basis add 20 during the summer. A grant of from the pro- vincial department of health and social development only .covers three-quarters of the operating costs.
