OFY project will help handicapped By MARLENE COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer Ten Lethbridge young people plan to continue their work with the educationally handi- capped in a Opportuni- ties for Youth project this sum- mer. Mostly high school and uni- versity students, the group con- sists of Rita Maynard, Suzanne Kaupp, Clair Forestell, Carol Secretan, Charlotte Tetzloff, Wendy Crane, Wendy Moar, Theresa Hollander, Lynelle Sbacklcford and Pat Forestell. Their project will enable the mentally nnd physically retard- ed between the ages of eight and 25 to participate in arts and crafts programs, singing, dancing and drama. "We hope to receive help from other OFY groups in these said Rita. The activities are part of day camps which will be held at Dorothy Gooder School from July 4 to Aug. 18. In addition to the day camps, the group plans campovers once a week and trips by bus to such places as Waterton Park, Banff and the Calgary Zoo. Trustee tries to stop meeting CALGARY One delegate to the emergency meeting of the Alberta School Trustees' Association tried unsuccess- fully to send the 600 delegates home before the sessions even got started Monday. Scott Saville, Calgary public school board member, charged that school trustees have been needlessly dragged to Calgary, at great expense to the taxpay- er, to reaffirm what is already ASTA policy and to support "motherhood resolutions." "We were told that we were faced with a crisis. This con- vention has been called under false pretenses. I suggest we all should pack up and go said Mr. Saville. "Instead of meeting here to boggle each others minds, we should go back to the schools and get on with the job of edu- cating." Mr. Saville accused the executive of trying to fool the public by "searching for an- swers for which no one even has the questions for yet. "It is a disgrace that we have to come here at the tax- payers' expense to go through this empty gesture." Mr. Seville's m o 11 o n to ad- journ the twfrday session, be- fore it started, went down to a solid defeat. Starting Blair report expensive CALGARY It would cost the provincial government the staggering total of million over the next five years to im- plement the recommendations of the Blair Report on Mental Health, says a study conducted by the Alberta School Trustees' Association. The study, requested earlier this year by Premier Peter Lougheed, predicts that it would cost million in the first year, million in the second year, million in the third year, million in the fourth year before yearly costs would level off at million in 1976-77. The ASTA estimated that 75 per cent of the cost would be for salaries of additional per- sonnel required lo operate the program. At the end of five years, new staff would be involved in the program. The Blair commission report called for "extensive upgrad- ing" of pupil personnel services in Alberta schools, particularly in the rural areas. EXACTLY The clvation of Lethbridge Is feet above sea level. They will be assisted in their project by the community ser- vices department, which has loaned them recreation equip- ment and arts and craft sup- plies, and by the Association for the Mentally Retarded, which has provided them with the use of the Dorothy Gooder School bus. All members of the group have had previous experience in dealing %vith the handi- capped. "I think that's one of the main reasons we got the said Rita. "Several other groups applied for funds for a similar All are members of the Youth Across Canada with the Mentally Retarded. Rita is president of the Lethbridge YAC and secretary treasurer of the provincial 'organization, and Clair is president of the Al- berta division. The members also operated a drop-in centre at Assump- tion School for the mentally and physically handicapped during the last school term- "We were cut in our grant, which only leaves us with for said Rila.

Jun. 14, 1972 THE ItTHiRIDSE t3O SUMMER SPECIAL AT Whatsit will line city streets A new line-painting machine will be seen on city streets this week. Don't mis- take it for a moon buggy. The self-propelled machine will save line-painting crews a lot of time. Peter Bouquet, city traffic engineer said. It can do the job in one-third the time of the old push-type machine. The new machine travels at betxveen six and 12 miles per hour and is capable of painting two lines, in any combination, in the centre of a street. After the machine lays the painted strip, it drops tiny glass beads into the strip to re- flect the headlights of on-com- ing cars, illuminating the line. The old push machine was used to paint the lines on pedes- trian and school crosswalks. That job. Is near completion, Mr. Bouquet said- Two injured Two serious injuries, one minor injury and a total of 500 damage resulted when a car driven by Stuart Beviss, Wilkie, Sask. collided with a car driven by Dora Jackson, Hill Springs shortly before noon Monday.
