Magill, totally blind as a re- sult of an accident -1-1 years ago, sits in tin1 driver's .sent of the Canadian .Naliuial In- stitute for Ihr- Blind, and maintains 't is Ih's type1 of in- fluence that sightless persons have over [he lives of others in the same filiation that has made the TXIB "unique" among world organizations ivith same aim. Mr. Magill, who as its man siting director is the paid bos: of CNIB employees ircoi lo coast, says that the remarkable llnog about (lie institute is thai ''the blind people arc contributing lo the operation of the organiza lion." ''There isn't a department here, except accounting which requires accurate work with figures, in which you do not li.ire a regisleretl blind pcr- WARM AND DRY Near normal and above normal temperalures are expected to cover most of the country, wilh mucli above readings for porlions of Alberta and Saskatchewan according to the 30-day outlook of the weather bureau.

In briefly outlining the oper- ations of the CNIB, he said: "Our big push at the moment is at Hie training level." Mr. Magill, who completed high school and later received his master of arts degree in economics after losing his sight, said he believes the fu- ture for Uie totally blind and the partially blind is in train- ing. EXPERIENCE PAYS OFF "There are 230 blind per- sons enrolled in Canadian uni- versities today. I am confi- dent that the future holds great promise for blind per- sons if we all take full advan- tage of the multitude of aids, resources and services that are available. "We would like to see blind persons of every age complete high school or university and those who have lost their sight after completing their educa- tion learn leclmiques which are valuable O'l the job mar- ket loriay. "As far as blind people are concerned, the person with professional or semi-profes- sional experience has no trou- ble with employment at a rea- sonable level. He finds per- sonal and employment inde- pendence." To illustrate his point, Mr. MaSll said that at a recent seminar of blind and partially blind computer programmers a number of them said they had recently changed jobs. "A few years ago this would have been unheard of. If you had a job you kept it because chances were you wculd never get another one. You didn't go rocketing all over Canada looking for jobs. Tlu's is a tre- mendous achievement. I see more and more of this hap- pening. "I also see the other end of the scale. The problem we are dealing with is a hard core of unemployable or difficult to employ. These are people who often have more than one mental retar- dation is involved. "You expend tremendous time and energy trying lo find a particular job these individ- uals can do. On one end of the scale we have those who are the other end we have the hard core that, are going to be extremely difficult to place."
