Obligingly, Jean Kuijt held and rocked the little one, sing- ing a nursery rhyme; alter- nately listening to the woes of another tyke who was getting just a little jealous of Jen- nifer's attention.

Corner 3rd Avenue and 13th Street South follow, and that's the way it should be. It's very much a home and family atmosphere, where the children aren't segregated according to age, but allowed to mix and play with whomever or whatever they prefer." The centre, which is run totally according to the needs of the parents who make use of it. has one full-time staff member. Rick Gibbs and another part-time member. Marg Kenna. "Rick is a most welcome addition to the Jean explained, "as I really feel that children need to have a man around not just women." She explained that all parents are involved in the running of the centre, as well as taking part in the actual care of the children. "We have no rules for the children, but the parents are expected to commit themselves to spending a set number of work hours here. "This is not my centre, and I certainly don't want anyone to think it's a drop-off place for their children. "It's a parent co-operative, run by the student society. Each parent comes in once a week, on a graduated time schedule. It's important to have them in touch with what's going on here, and we plan to elect a parent ex- ecutive which will ensure all nursery policies are approved by the parent she said. Children at the centre range in age from eight months to five years and are mostly youngsters of faculty staff or students. Jean stressed that the general public is welcome to make use of the centre when attending a special seminar, and using the library, or other U of L facility. "We're open on an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. basis and always have four or five workers on duty. There's lots of room for the kids to spread out. "The most important thing is for the parents to realize they should contact us before coming out to ensure we can accept another child for that time. And every child should he brought here ahead of time so that he knows where he's going and can get used to the place. "Dropping off a kid and leaving immediately is not the way we run she added.

Smaller areas have been allotted for quiet activities such as reading or sleeping. Included is an outdoor and in- door playground and a kitchen. The children bring a bag lunch and the centre supplies juice, milk and cookies for the "tea parties" which take place all day long. "We've considered supply- ing lunch, but the kids get such a kick out of bringing their own lunch, we plan to leave as it is." she said. Although the structure of the centre is extremely flex- ible, Jean explained that every child attending (there are 45 families, some with two or three children) is known by name and staffers have developed personal relationships. "We spend more time sitting and cuddling than anything. The mothers take care of assisting with the painting and reading and such, and we take our cues from the kids. What they want to do, we do if they want us to join in." Included in the activities are visits to various departments at the university such as drama, biology and the gym. "This setting provides a wonderful wealth of resources for us as well as students who often come in and have the op- portunity to be around children' especially those planning on early-education courses." added Jean. She said the centre is in need of supplies, especially a rocker "to rock the unhappy large dumptrucks, big pillows for sitting on, more toys which can be played with by groups "to teach the children and a walker for tots.

We've gotten to know each other pretty well. You've blessed me, been delighted with some of my answers and disgusted with others. When you've cried on my shoulder I've comforted some of you and told others to turn off the waterworks and stop wasting the natural resources. On occasion you've persuad- ed me that my advice was wrong and I've reversed myself. But I've been right more than I've been wrong and with good reason. I tap the best brains in the country for my answers. Since a great many physical complaints are closely related to emotional problems, I've prevailed upon some of the country's most distinguished physicians to be my con- sultants. With the help of these specialists I've been able to alert 54 million daily readers to what's new in health care. Some of you have written to say I may have sav- ed your lives. When I ran the column urging you to send for the cancer society's free booklet on breast self- examination, nearly half a million women wrote to the national headquarters or to their local Cancer Society of- fices. Thousands of women did find lumps most of them were benign, but some were malignant. Because they were discovered early, hundreds, maybe thousands, of women will live another 40 years and dance at the weddings of their grandchildren. Today I am going to ask you again to send for a free booklet that could save your life. It deals with a disease that most of you will be shock- ed to learn strikes one out of every ten Americans. I am talking about commonly known as high blood pressure. Over 23 million Americans have high blood pressure. Half of these sick people don't know it because usually there are no symptoms. The person who DOES have symptoms headaches, dizziness, fatigue, low sex drive in the prime of life is lucky because he just might go to a'doctor BEFORE he suffers a stroke, gets a heart attack or is stricken with blindness or kidney failure. How can you protect yourself against this killer dis- ease, or deal with it if you do have it? The first step is to educate that's why I am urging you to write for the free booklet. It will not only tell you what to do, but it will give you assurance that almost every case of high blaod pressure can be controlled with medication. Send a postcard to: HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH BETHESDA, MARYLAND 20014 If you're too lazy to write a postcard, slip this column into an envelope and scribble across it your NAME and ADDRESS.
