Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta I nc LC i nomuuic oaiuruay, vciuoer 10 Canada neglects children CALGARY (CP) Cana- dian cities are designed for adults, neglecting children's needs to play, Polly Hill of Ot- tawa, head of the Children's environments Advisory Ser- vice of the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation said here. "I believe the opportunity for free play is something all children she said in an interview. "In Canada, we stress sports but only 23 per cent of all children are involv- ed in sports so what are the other 11 per cent Mrs. Hill, also vice- president of the International Playgrounds Association, said in neglecting children's needs to play "we are retarding their physical, social and emotional growth." She said playgrounds should be of the adventure type large areas with trees, grass, sand and water and with no equipment or structure that cannot be moved or changed. Children can build forts, climb trees, camp, dig. paint, read, or do nothing. An adventure-type playground should also be sur- rounded by a high fence to keep out vandals when it is closed, to allow children to pursue their activities in a world their own. and to conceal its "untidy appearance" from adults. Mrs. Hill said play is necessary for children's development. Children who do not rely on television or struc- tured activities are creative and innovative. They will not become bored easily and get into trouble. In the planning stages Members of Beta Sigma Phi sorority are shown hard at work and 24 at the Yates Memorial Centre.

SLOWEST PUZZLE The slowest completion to a crossword was reported by The Times of London which received a letter from a Fijian woman who said she took 34 years to complete'one of the newspaper's puzzles. what is called the comprehen- sive community services program. "What it means is that we will eventually empty our in- stitutions." explained Jeanne Mulvenna. a delegate from Manitoba. She said the provincial government already has approved in principle the es- tablishment of a demonstra- tion project in western Manitoba, including the Brandon area. THE BETTER HALF Dr. Allan Roeher. director of the National Institute on Mental Retardation, said public acceptance is crucial to the success of the projects. There has been talk for 15 or 20 years of doing away with in- stitutions for the care of the mentally retarded, he said, but until the public under- stands and accepts the system of community services there will be no pressure on governments and agencies to spend money. By Barnes "Some mothers praise their children for cleanina their plate. Stanley's mother must have praised him for cleaning the table." by Jnmieson SHOPPING for gro- ceries can rub the bloom off even the peachiest marriage. It's not so much the money you spend, it's the nagging that drives you up the wall. Men, bless 'em, labor under the peculiar misconception that it's only women who nag. But if you want to hear a real expert at work, tune in on practically any couple doing their weekly thing at the local supermarket, and you'll soon find out the boot is lightly lac- ed on the other foot. Mind you, I firmly believe a woman should take her hus- band to the supermarket, in spite of his nagging ways. Then he gets to see that the package of cheese crackers and the can of shrimp he non- chalantly lifts off the shell" car. account for an extra ten- dollars or so on the food bill. And if she's wise, a wife can fight dirty and throw in a little brainwashing from time to time. Passing the meat counter. she can trot out her wistful lit- tle smile. "I see your steak has gone up another ten cents a pound, dear." she murmurs. Looking bravely up into his faCe she adds: "never mind honey! Vou need your steak to keep up your strength, so I'll eat hamburger this week. same as the children. That will keep your budget in shape for you.'' (In our family, it's always his budget when it is in bad shape, ours when it's sunny side up! Howrver. if you feel you're losing the battle to save your sanity on grocery day: if you start hallucinating, and see yourself grabbing hold of that little man who tells those cost- of-iiving fairy (ales and smothering him in toilet rolls, chicken necks and peanut butter here's something I discovered quite by accident. With groceries fast becom- ing the kind of luxury that's way beyond my reach, I got to the stags where I just couldn't face those prices one more time. Using some pretty tricky footwork, I developed assorted minor illnesses three Saturday's in a row. And three times in a row my other half sallied forth alone to tangle with Die little shopp- ing cart. For three glorious weeks we lived like kings filets, standing rib. lobster, fresh pineapple first c'ass all the way! Then he made a fatal mis- take, and forgot to throw away the sales slip, which I silently taped to the- wall above the TV set right at eye level. The very next Saturday, just as I reached for pickles and tomato ketchup, he casually told me that due to his careful budget balancing, we could now afford a hefty increase in our grocery allowance. And 1 hadn't even asked1 With that kind of co- operation, I can put up with a bit nf nagging here and there. Arthritis education program An organizational meeting for persons interested in forming a group to learn more about arthritis, its problems and coping with the disease, will be held at 2 p.m. Thurs- day in the auditorium of the Gait School of Nursing.

The 'CARS supports a rheumatic disease unit at Calgary General Hospital which provides service to patients from southern Alber- ta, and information will be available en this as well.

Phone 328-2321 disagrees with war of sexes CHARLOTTETOWN (CP) Senator Therese F. Casgrain, for many years an advocate of women's rights in Quebec, said here that while she is in favor of the principle of "women's she does not agree with a lot of ''its modalities." Mme. Casgrain, who was speaking at the University of Prince Edward Island as part of the centennial lecture series, is a three-time leader of the old Co-Operative Com- monwealth Federation (CCF) party in Quebec and a past president of the League of Women's Rights in Quebec. "For me, (liberation) means not to throw away our feminity and try to copy men in everything. I believe that to achieve a worthwhile society, we must co-operate with each other and nni. start a war of the sexes. "I am quite ready to accept that we are in a man's world. Unfortunately, laws too often are still made by them without consulting the women and legally, economically and socially there is still much to be done. "It can be accomplished, I feel sure, without provoking a backlash which, instead of helping the cause of liberation of wornon can only contribute to set it back."
