Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LCTHBRIDQE HERALD TuMdty, 29, Judges shirk problem of child abuse EDMONTON (CP) A Calgary family court judge said on the weekend too many juvenile court judges never really examine the abused child problem because "they want to play a big Daddy role." Judge Herman Litsky said many judges "stick their heads into the sands of precedent" and never really legality and socially examine the problem of cliild abuse. Changes are needed within the judicial structure and this will come as judges become more trained in the social sciences, he told a workshop on child abuse. Judge Litsky said he has always believed that a juvenile court judge "must take an active part in the treatment process. The judge should thus be in- volved in the study of per- sonality taking all the help he can get from the social and human sciences. "The courts could be ex- cellent laboratories to observe human behavior and not mere- ly looked upon as sterile depositories where evidence is given."

Her position doesn't seem to bother her or her colleagues but, she said with a twinkle in her Irish green eyes, "some people do pause for just a fraction of a second when they see me."

JollyTime discrimination than one in government, she said. At six, Noella Brennan de- veloped an ambition to be- conie a lawyer. She said'she may have been unconciously influenced by her mother, who had planned a legal career but left after a year of law school because of a lack of money. At Dalhousie law school, she was one of two women in a graduating class of 50. Now the school has about one woman in every four, gradu- ates "and that's quite a change in so short a time." After graduating in 1966, Miss Brennan articled for nine months with a Dartmouth lawyer specializing in criminal law. She had planned a career in-commercial law, preferably in Montreal with .an international firm but she took a positie" with the federal department of exter- nal affairs. Though she never worked in other countries for the gov- ernment, she turned down an opportunity to work in Argen- tina and instead returned to Halifax with the Industrial Development Bank. MARRIED ENGINEER A new job with the finance department began shortly be- fore she married a Halifax consulting engineer. Mrs. Fisher said her present job is the most demanding and responsible she has held. Among other things, it in- volves preparing bond issues for the government to be sold in Canada and abroad. She said she finds each bond issue a challenge. Although they may contain dis- similarities, bond-issue docu- ments are usually drawn op on the basis of previous ones and a small error in one could be compounded into a multi- million-dollar error in toe next "There's a lot of work to it, pressure of deadlines and things, but I enjoy it "If I run into a problem the other solicitors in the attor- ney-general's department are available to help me In addition to bond issues, Mrs. Fisher advises the fi- nance department and treas- ury board on the statutes they administer and also becomes involved in higher financing problems. Besides her government work, Mrs. Fisher and her husband operate a real estate management service and she is a member of the board of governors of Mount Saint Vin- cent University in Halifax. She also is active in the John Howard Society and has had other outside activities tat the arrival recently of a daughter has forced her to curtail them. Hands of parents, jealous brothers deadly weapons EVANSTON, DL (AP) Many infants suffer damaging, even fatal, whiplash injuries from the shakings their parents or brothers and sisters give them, a Pittsburgh physician says. Writing in the October issue of the. magazine Pediatrics, published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. John Caffey says infants may suffer permanent brain and eye damage from shakings. Caffey, of the departments of pediatrics and radiology at the University of Pittsburgh and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, says a campaign is needed to educate parents of the potential harm from shakings. The hands of an angry parent or jealous older brother or sister may become deadly weapons, Caffey says. The shakings need not be vigorous to damage a and may result only from periodic mild shakings, he says. He warns that Slapping or cuffing the infant's head with an open hand, even mildly, might cause bleeding in the head and eyes. He also cited cases of mental retardation and cerebral palsy caused by shaking of in- fants. The injuries frequently cannot be seen, so go un- detected and might be attributed to something else when they are finally discovered, Caffey says. Hemorrhage inside the skull is the most common and most injurious damage resulting from shaking of infants. Caffey points out that the normal infantile brain and its blood vessels are highly vulnerable to whiplash in- jury because babies' heads are relatively heavier and their neck muscles weaker-than at any other age level. He notes also that infants rarely get a single manual shake but are subjected to fits of shaking which may be repeated over periods of days or weeks. "Many infants receive dozens and scores of whiplash stresses, some .hundreds." While a single Shaking may be less forceful and damaging than the single whiplash in an automobile accident, Caffey says the total effect of repeated shakings may be more harmful to the brain and blood vessels of the head and eyes. "Habitual, moderate, casual whiplash shaking appears to be practised to some degree nearly everywhere by parents or parent-surrogates (sub- stitutes) for a wide variety of he says: The common motives, he says, are punishment for minor misbehavior and discipline in training. Life without not for Barbtira ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) When Barbara Verti learned she would not have to retire on her 65th birthday after all, she grasped a social worker's hand excitedly. "I w-a-n-t t-o w-o-r-k 25 mo- r-e said Miss Verti, -a blind deaf-mute who traced the letters of the words in the palm of the man's Miss Verti had been sched- uled to retire from her job at the Albany Associ- ation for the Blind, where she folds and mends linen. But the association rescinded its order that all workers must retire at age 65. "Her life without work is a said Robert Las- sone, the social worker who helped her get the job 10 years ago. "When she is not touching something, she is in a void." When Lassone initially told Miss Verti she would have to retire, "she just shook her head and sniffled a little and .made a circle over her heart to express her he said. "They said it was too ex- Lassone said. "But the pension the bad to be marginal and the cost of the insurance to keep them on after 65 has to be marginal." i: "They only make between. and per year." Miss Verti went deaf as a child and never learned to speak. Her parents sent her to a state school where she learned to communicate by tracing the letters of the al- phabet. She went blind at age 12 and returned home. In 1958, her father died and she and her mother were admitted to a county hospital, where her mother soon died.
