You give your readers the impression thai drug users are menially ill. This is a Fascisl lie. Drug users are Ihc only sane people left in this crazy world I'm a speed freak and 1 defy anyone to prove I am mentally sick. I AM sick of war, tonflicl between black and while, and sick of seeing poor people living in hovels that aren't fit for pigs. I'm also sick of phony politicians, filthy wafer and polluted air. The only way a person can keep from cracking up these days is by smoking grass, di tipping acid or popping pills. People say the youlh of our country is rebelling bill it's untrue. We are creating our own world because we can'l live in your world of haired, violence and pain. Anyone who can tolerate what is going on is nutty or subhuman. J don't expect to see my letler in print because you have no With The Establishment DEAK 1 too am sick of war, conflict between black and white, shameful housing for the poor, ptoiiy politi- cians, filthy water and polluted air. But Tm hanging in there drugs, thank to keep it all together, attempting to cope with problems and looking lor some pos- sible solutions. Unfortunately, the world you escape lo is a private world- imaginary and temporary. It's only a place lo visit. You can't live there. 11 takes guts to keep your head on fight ignorance, prejudice and injustice. But it's the only chance the good guys have to win, President Jolrn F. Kennedy said, "The most valuable natural resources of any nation are its young people." If the youth of ow country opts lo cop out (and drugs are a copout no mailer what you we are finished. The next ten years will be a period of crisis in world history ami we can't meet the challenge with whole generation of fried braitts.

Knighls began his studies with children with learning prob- lems as a professor at Univer- sity of Western Ontario in Londtn from 1964 to J909. lie has since written more Ihan 30 publications in conjunction with different pediatricians on his findings. IIUNUltliDS TKSTE1) Prof. Knighls graduated from Western wilh a BA in psychology in I95U and re- turned there alter getting his PhD in psychology from the University of Minnesota. He became a registered psycholo- gist in Ontario in 1964. With lhe support of an On- tario Mental Health Founda- tion grant, Prof. Knights has lesleil more than slu- denls in the lasl five years. The children, recommended lo Prof. Knighls because of their slowness in learning in school, are given 17 lesls de- signed to measure various skills. The tests can lake up lo five or six hours, depending on the child. He finds thai one of lhe most common learning disor- ders among [he children tested is inability lo read, known as dylexia. Dylexia occurs when lhe parl of lhe brain used in the funclion of reading doesn'l mature normally. That is why some people suddenly find reading a lot easier when Ihey arc in their lale teens. Prof. Knights Miggcsli lhal lhe importance allached to i reading should be de-empha- sized. If a child can't learn lo i read. Ihc allernative is lo stress some activity lhal doesn'l require reading. A first step in dealing wilh children wilh dylexia is lo change the attilude of people involved wilh them, Prat. Knights said. The child's problem shouldn't be treated as a disgrace or an embar- rassment. I'RONE TO FAILURE "If you can't change the child, change his environ- i is Prof. Knighls' theme. Under the grade system lhal still exisls in many schools Ihc child wlio can't read is prone to failure. Fail- ure is a stigma thai makes lhe problem seem even worse for the child. Dr. Knighls advocates a I non-grade system where a child can proceed al liis own j rale. "Children accept that j llicre are fasl learners and j slow learners'' in Ihis syslcm and slowness is no longer a stigma. Many children with proh- j lems like inability to read, lo j spell or lo write now may use 1 a lape recorder lo make I heir nolcs and even l'i do exams. Typewriters help children who can't write properly says Prof. Knighls. For some undc- lermincd reason children who can't spell seem to improve on a typewriter. Giving a child incentive is one of Ihc most successful ways of improving his read- ing, Prof. Knights said. One incentive is lo "Id him read whal he wants lo if parents don't agree with the subject matter. There arc oilier One child who lias a reading problem is saving up lo buy a bicycle, so his inolher gives him a ccnl for every page he roads. Another child who likes records gels a new one after a specified amount ot reading, FIX OWN KIIHOKS These children shinilil never he. corrected if Ihey make a r e a d i n p mistake, Prof. Knights said. "Onee Ihey start reading well enough, they will correct their own mis-lakes." THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes One mother was skeptical aboul this advice. However, she didn't correct her son's mistakes and soon reported (hat he was going back and correcting them so ha could understand the story. Prof. Knighls said some children wilh diagnosed motor problems have been helped by drugs. Others have been found to have no brain disorder but simply couldn't adjust to a school environment. But great number have, through new approaches, been able to succeed where tlicy had once failed. 'You're .I'm brill ion 1, witly, charming, and superior, but" I am NOT boastful ..Acrually I have a tendency to underestimate myself."
