Provincial court Youth admits break-in deprived, gov't action needed' By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer Some children are being deprived of the right to grow emotionally, culturally and intellectually and legislation is needed to remedy the situation. This was the mesage Saturday from the three keynote speakers at the Canadian Mental Health Association's annual provincial meeting.

Manitoba agriculture minister Sam Usktw told the legislature recently dairies in his province add powdered milk to fluid stocks and sell it as whole milk. He said a shortage of fluid milk (milk processed for drinking including that for home consumption, is in short supply in Manitoba. Because of the eight per cent shortage, the department allows dairies to reconstitute powdered milk and sen it in bottles or cartons as whole milk. Al Wiggins, manager of Silverwood Dairies Ltd. in Lethbridge, said there is sufficient supplies of fluid milk in Southern Alberta to meet the needs of the dairies. He said dairies here are lucky they don't have to add powdered milk because of the added expense.

Speaking on childrens' intellectual development, Dr. Perkins said education for all children, including the handicapped, is a right in society and not a charity. "The right of education for all children is the keystone of the dignity of man It is the one all-inclusive right of complete freedom for the individual to develop to his fullest possible extent every Clues to identify fatality scarce With only a belt buckle, wristwatch and key ring as clues, Taber RCMP have tentatively identified a man killed Saturday after the half- ton he was driving collided with a parked car and burned in a ditch. The man, believed to be from Taber, was one of 11 people who died accidentally this weekend in Western Canada, according to a Canadian Press survey. At least six persons died in B.C. four in traffic accidents and two in a plane crash while Alberta recorded four deaths and Saskatchewan one. Taber RCMP are now sifting the burnt wreckage of the half-ton for teeth which could be used to make a positive identification. The accident occurred three miles east of Taber on Highway 3. Elsewhere in the province, a Calgary man died Saturday night in Fort Macleod hospital after the car he was riding in skidded out of control on an icy section on Highway 2, north of Granum, and collided head-on with a southbound vehicle. Jerimiha J. Laboret and the driver of the car, Hilda Byers, also of Calgary, were taken to Fort Macleod Municipal Hospital after the collision, where Byers is now in satisfactory condition. The driver of the other vehicle, Thea Veiling, of Claresholm, was treated for superficial in- juries and released. Rosemary Beauregarde, 19, of Mannville, Alta., was found dead on Highway 41 near Wainwright, 140 miles southeast of Edmonton, Friday night. Police say she appeared to have been hit by a vehicle which left the scene. Franz Denneschewitz, 56, of Edmonton, died Saturday morning when the car he was driving rammed into a fire hydrant in the city Police say Denneschewitz suffered a heart attack moments before his car struck the hydrant. In Saskatchewan, police have identified Dennis Yarocki, 24, of Marwayne, Alta as the man killed Saturday night in a traffic accident near Radisson, about 40 miles northwest of Saskatoon. Yarocki was a passenger in a car which collided with the rear of an abandoned half-ton truck on a highway. Tourism portfolio 'not soon enough9 A separate tourism portfolio may be created after the next provincial election, says Bob Dowling, minister responsible for tourism. But that possibility is disappointingly far in the future according to the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta. "Unfortunately, the need for the portfolio is to meet the competition and the competition is getting Frank Smith, executive director of the association, said today. "The wish of all of us was for legislation at the spring session, or certainly this year. I think it critical that that sort of priority be put on the matter." The government has a mandate until 1976. Mr. Dowling said the province might establish the separate portfolio if the Progressive Conservatives were returned to power. As minister of consumer affairs, Mr. Dowling also handles tourism matters. In an interview during the weekend in Edmonton, Mr. Dowling also predicted a 10 per cent increase in Alberta's tourist business this year. He expected business to total 9400 million, aided by the energy crisis in the United States. Tourist associations have been calling for a separate department of tourism because of the importance of the industry to the provincial economy. In a brief to the government just released, the Southern Alberta travel association recommends an overhaul of Travel Alberta, the government agency responsible for tourism, and its conversion into a full- fledged department. The recommendations are the "product of a lot of hard work by a lot of well-qualified Mr. Smith said. In the main, they were originally drafted by the National Tourism Resources Review Commission in the United States. potential and talent for his most effective self- management and Dr. Perkins said. Rights for the "exceptional child" (developmentally handicapped or gifted) in education should be ensured and in this ,way the rights of all children would be protected. "The exceptional child has the right to be educated by a professionally prepared teacher... the right to attend school in his neighborhood and be integrated into the regular educational program the right to education while hospitalized and the right to have all public buildings equipped with ramps and special washroom he said. Dr. Perkins also explained that while rights of the educationally deprived should be protected, more could also be done to combat the causes of intellectual handicaps. The early growth and development of the brain is dependent on the quality and quantity of food absorbed into the body and poor nutrition is fostered by poor social conditions such as poverty, poor hygiene and parasitic disease. Therefore poverty, malnutrition and intellectual development seem to be related, he said. Or Perkins pointed out one study concluded that children undernourished in their earliest years had the poorest prognosis for full recovery in growth, "particularly for full recovery in brain size." Also "some children who survive all the prenatal hazards, suffer from diseases associated with the worst slum conditions of the nineteenth century. "Governments have a responsibility to continuously examine children dunng the preschool years and ensure early intervention for stimulation should it be Dr. Perkins said. And the child has the right to have a mother who has proper knowledge of child development. She should also be particularly aware of her own attitude and acceptance of the child-he added. Enid Melville, Lethbridge child psychiatrist, added in her talk that all children have the right to love and maternal care, including before birth. She said childrens' rights to grow emotionally include the need for emotional security, the right to individuality, and the right for freedom of expression. Rhonda Blood, counsellor with the Blood Band, said "educational, religious, civic, recreation and welfare agencies should exert pressure" to help eliminate cultural deprivation. GUFF HACK.
