Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta The Herald- Family Passive viewing bad for children SASKATOON (CP) Chil- dren should have television programs "that don't just in- volve them watching adults making tools 01 says Jonina Male of Saskatoon, chairman of a committee which has prepared a report on children's television. The report, prepared for the Saskatoon Family Service Bu- reau, says there is virtually no television programming de- signed for children over five. t Mrs. Male says older children should have programs that involve them in projects instead of programs that are just for passive viewing. The committee's recommendations include a suggestion that the Canadian Radio-Television Commission set up a special department to produce a comprehensive plan for children's programs. The department would un- dertake research into how television programs affect a THE BETTER HALF child's behavior, set guides for children's programming and encourage the networks to increase such programming. But not all the responsibility would be left to the govern- ment agency. The report recommended creation of a national com- mittee of parents, teachers and child development specialists that would help develop guides for broad- casters and producers. The national committee would receive reports from local meetings across Canada where parents, teachers and local television producers would discuss the topic. "We have to get parents more involved in children's television and give them a chance to state their views about Mrs. Male says.

(AP) She is probably the most glamorous of photogra- phers and possibly one of the best. Her product is a book called Italia Mia, a pictorial love let- ter from Gina Lollobrigida to her native land. "I took them all said the actress of her pic- tures. "Not only that; I se- lected the 192 photos out of 000 that I took. I wrote the captions. And I even did the lavout for the book." "When I was making Solo- mon and Sheba with Yul Brynner, he told me, 'You must make money for your photographs: then you will know that your pictures are good.' For two of the years while she took pictures Miss Lol- lobrigida neglected her acting career.

EDMONTON (CP) Mongolism (Down's the single most common cause of mental retardation, may not be irreversible, says Dr. E. E. McCoy, biomedical researcher with the Centre for the Study of Mental Retar- dation. This is the premise on which a centre research team is bas- ing its work, Dr. McCoy, also chairman of pediatrics at University of Alberta, said in an interview. Mongolism is associated with the occurrence of an ex- tra chromosome, or body, in the cell nuclei which tran- smits inherited characteristics. This chromosome is believ- ed responsible for disturbing the biochemical processes es- sential for the normal development of cells, said Dr McCoy. Individuals with mongolism are characterized by short stature, small round head, stumpy trunk and limbs and characteristic folds of the eyelid. "But these physical features are relatively unim- he said. "What is significant is that children with Down's Syndrome are mentally retarded." It is with the biochemical basis of mental retardation that Dr. McCoy and his associates have been ex- perimenting, particulary with a substance called serotonin. "We are beginning to know what constitutes the normal functioning of the he said. Serotonin is one impor- tant substance in the brain associated with mood changes and behavior. Because it's difficult to study serotonin in brain cells, Blakeney attacks inflation REGINA (CP) Premier Allan Blakeney took over the Saskatchewan airwaves for 6''2 minutes Friday evening to unveil his government's counterattack on inflation. He announced abolition of medical-care insurance pre- miums, increased welfare payments and a raise in the provincial minimum wage to an hour from That is just the beginning of a series of measures to ease the impact of inflation on lower-income groups, he told Saskatchewan residents on the most extensive radio- television hookup in the province's history. Virtually all radio and TV stations carried the speech live, the only missing TV station being in Lloydminster. for technical reasons. Mr. Blakeney told reporters later that other measures to be considered would include raising the pensions of retired civil servants and various measures to ensure adequate supplies of commodities at reasonable prices. INVENTED THE WHEEL (Jeorge W. Ferris constructed the original Ferris Wheel, 250 feet in diameter, for the Chicago Midway in 1893. the team has studied it in blood platelets, where it is taken up and stored in the same way as in the brain. "It has been observed that in individuals with Down's Syndrome serotonin is taken into the blood platelets more slowly" than normally, and the amount required is greater than normal. If the blood platelet model applies to the brain, perhaps serotonin and other behavior- influencing substances are inadequately concentrated in brain cells, Dr. McCoy said. "We are beginning to gain an insight into what may be in- volved in Down's Syndrome." "I personally don't believe that all the biochemical conse- quences of Down's Syndrome are necessarily said Dr. McCoy. "When a baby is born with an extra chromosome there are also extra genes on that chromosome, but one theory Oldsters respond to courses is that only a few are impor- tant in mental functioning. "We may eventually be able to improve the mental func- tioning of Down's Syndrome patients." The research team has also studied the influence of the additional chromosome on cell replication in tissue cultures, and has found "a marked lengthening of cell doubling time" in those with mongolism. Whereas normal cells doubl- ed in 24 hours, Down's cells required 37 hours, which is "consistent with the premature aging observed" in mongolism patients. "At the present time, however, we can't see how this observation relates to brain functioning or the characteristic physical said Dr. McCoy.

PHONE 327-6070 Senior citizens in the Lethbridge area are responding enthusiastically to courses arranged by the Lethbridge Community College says information of- ficer Gordon Colledge. The first class in resin craft, held Friday afternoon at the Golden Mile Senior Citizens' Centre, attracted some 30 people. Dale Heyland, college direc- tor of continuing education, said here that "a committee of senior citizens selected three courses resin craft, hairstyling and a study of the world with slides from the catalogue of regular evening courses offered at the college." The world slide series was to begin this afternoon at 2 o'clock with slides of Ger- many. Other countries to be included in this series are Holland, New Guinea and South America. The hairstyling course for women will start Oct. 2.

Ihink Canada, as they used to say in the old days, is made of some pretty lough stuff. It's called Canadians. And Canadians don't break easily. MAYBE THERE ARE MORE STORIES THAN YOU KNOW OF It's (rile, of course, to talk about Canada and the diva iris of freedom that put us all here.
