Howard Clifford, director of Edmontcn day care services, who tells tliis story, says the little girl obviously made her conclusions based on her own experiences in society. Mr. Clifford is directly re- sponsible for about 270 chil- dren attending Edmonton's five city-subsidized day care centres and is both knowl- edgeable and concerned about the need for adequate supple- mentary care for children, especially those of working mothers. Working mothers are not greedy people who needlessly take advantage of day care services, Mr. Clifford said. "The typical day care pro- gram in Canada has over 70 per cent of spaces given to children of mothers who are the sole support of their fam- ily." It makes good economic sense for governments to provide good day care serv- ices, the 32-year-old director said. Before taking on the job of director of the city's day- care sendees years ago, he spent three years as direc- tor of social welfare services at a provincial mental hospi- tal. "The cost of treating iron- tally ill people in our various hospital settings is stagger- he said. He tlunlts good community services in the early years especially will prevent a lot of mental illness' later. "In the long run it's going to save them not only in the long run, but right now. For example, the differ- ence between supporting a child in a day care centre while tho mother works and supporting the whole family on welfare." Day care might also mean the'difference between a mother staying at home with her family instead of having to be placed ir a mental hos- pital because she can't cope with the stress of a "full- time" family, he said. Day care often looks like one of the social service frills to people who don't know how necessary it is he said. HIGH QUALITY NEEDED "The greatest opposition to day care centres is by people who are ignorant of what it is all about. Some people believe that day care takes the child away from the family, but good day care strengthens the family." Mr. Clifford would like to see higher standards for day care centres in Alberta. The provincial social development branch does have standards, but mostly with the physical aspects of care. Quality of I to the centre care must be liiglv also, he said.

MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS EXTRA 5 GAMES CARDS 25e EACH OR S FOR BLACKOUT IN 48 NUMBERS DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'll be brief and to the point. We live in a highclass neighborhood. Trashy people can't afford to buy homes in this section. Six months ago a cer- young couple bought the house next door. They have wo infant girl and a little boy, about two and a half years old. The mother allows the boy to run around the yard nude. I find this very embarrassing and my husband doesn't like it either. Is mere a law against t? We don't want to call the police but if our neighbors are violating an ordinance perhaps we should. I had some ladies in for bridge yesterday and that naked Md next door was standing right in front of our louse. He is cheapening our property. Please tell us what to DEAR 888: The sight of a two-and-a-half-year-old boy with no clothes on does not offend me in a house or a yard, but in our society people who appear in public are expected to wear some covering, and: this means people of all ages. This is not a matter for the police, but DO suggest to the mother that she put some clothing on the boy for protection against injury, if for no other reason. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Are gifts "forever" or until you want them back? I have just received a list (17 items) whicH my former fiance would like returned. The list dates back to 1962. Her memory astounds me. I asked the advice of a friend who was in a similar spot last year. He said, "Give everything back or you'll never get rid of her." Incidentally, she is NOT returning the engagement ring! May I hear your views on this DEAR FENCE: Eight years is a long time to just "go with a girl and she is undoubtedly trying to get thing. Your friend gave you sound advice and I hope you take it. In the meantime, the lady is entitled to the ring if the gentleman breaks the engagement, which I'll bet you did. "What scares me more than anything is the argument that anything is goorl enough in day care. But there are so many instances in the past that show that's dren who were placed in or- phanages two decades ago and just given food and shelter. "I've heard some people who run centres say they would rather look after in- fants because they can look after more of them at a time." He said that these people will merely keep the Wants in the cot and keep them fed and little vegetables all in a row. DIDNIT SLIP BACK A n American researcher has found that children who were considered slightly men- tally retarded but were placed in a good day care centre had shown advancement beyond children considered normal when they began school. "They retained this adv- ance, too, and didn't slip back to retarded status" The standards for the city- subsidized centres that Mr. Clifford administers are higher than non-subsidized ones. For example, each of the five centres has staff that have had special training in care for children aged 3 to 6. "We don't hire primary school teachers usually. "The school system is often too rigid. We're not trying to push Grade 1 down a year. "In fact, we think the early grades might learn something from our approach." Mr. Clifford has been assist- ing with a special report on day care centres that will form part of the report of the royal commission on the status of women. He also presented a paper at the Van- ier Institute on the Family seminar on day care last year. "One of the key things in a good day care program is community involvement. I like to see parents and oilier interested citizens from the community on the boards of day care centres." PROGRAM EXPANDS When he first took over the program in Edmonton, there was only one city-subsidized centre taking 54 children. The program now hss five centres, with about 270 children at- tending. Another 50 children or brothers and sisters of children in the pro- after school. "Tlie time was ripe for n government-subsidized d a y care program. But there is a real interest in more day care in this province and in all of Canada." The only opposition was ig- norance of the aims of the programs and of what good day care could do for children ir the community. But rising unemployment might bring out further oppo- sition. "If unemployment was to mushroom, you'd find a pretty large number of people saying that since there aren't enough jobs to go around then women should stay home and allow men to take the jobs." But this did not work. "Most w omen (hat are working are cither in jobs that require skills and talent that the unemployed men just don't have or they are in such low-paying jobs' that Iran would not interested in them." And even when there wero no day care centres, women had gone to work. "It has simply meant women have gone to work finding second- rate, often inadequate, and sometimes damaging care for their children. "It costs society dearly If we provide inadequately for these children." Suggests That You PUT AN END TO CLOTHESLINE i BACKACHE!
