Located in their basement, the yak yak room contains many articles which are defi- nitely conversation pieces. Mrs. Owen believes in mak- ing use of routine household items which normally are thrown away when their useful- ness is over. Egg cartons are fashioned into lamp shades, candle holders are made out o' a variety of bottles, and a fra- gile "beaded" curtain is ac- I u a 11 y uncooked macaroni strung together. Both Mr. and Mrs. Owen like scouring the countryside for ar- ticles which have been discard- ed. They have picked up sev- eral horse names, painted them and made them into picture frames. A pair of old plow seals with discs on the bottom make comfortable chairs beside an antique pedal sewing machine which serves as a table or desk. Mr. Owen, who works at the Research Station, has brought home thousands of tiny soil sample bottles which his wife has used lo create a large, in- tricate sculpture.

FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN Thunctoy, Monti 2, 1972 THE IE1HBR1DGE HERALD lear Margaret Brookfield: When my daughter died In a ragic auto accident last year, er husband married again al- nost immediately because he elt his 3-year-old son needed a mother. His second wife is at- ractive looking, but I can't ay anything else good about er. I think she's doing a mis- erable job of raising the child. My son-in-law doesn't know IBW much she neglects that Is there some way my husband and I could legally ake him home and raise him ourselves? I'm sure we could [o a much better job of it. R, S., Cincinnati, Ohio Dear R. S.: Grandparents may be blood but generally have ew legal rights as far as their grandchildren are concerned. If hey try to take a child from us parents, in some states this can be considered kidnapping. they try to get custody hrough the courts, they may lave to convince the judge that he child is actually being "ne- or that his parents are as defined by stale aw. In other words, the court von't generally take a child "rom his natural parent, unless the law is being violated in some way. Why don't you dis- cuss these, matters with a law- yer, before deciding on any course of action. Dear Margaret Brookfield: I've just had my birth- day and feel at least 100 years old.

Young get remedial help for learning disabilities EDMONTON (CP) The University of Alberta has opened a clinic for children with .earning disabilities. The learning and development clinic, which opened at the be- jinning of January, will serve about 10 children each month on a referral basis from the public and separate school boards in :he city. Children referred to the clinic primarily are those having diffi- :ulty in some aspect of learn- ing, said Dr. J. P. Das, director of (he centre. At the centre, each child Is given a battery of tests, includ- 'ng the standard intelligence :ests and specific tests of var- ious facets of mental function- ing, he said. Purpose of the clinic is not so much diagnosis as remedial, Dr. Das said. The staff works out a program for the individual that aims at improving his men- ial capacities. This might mean a program aimed at improving his memory or his attention span rather THOMAS ORGANS SPINETS.
