IZl 2kilTS C'I'Tm IN CLINTON TO. IOLD EXHIBITION For the first time an exhibition and sale of crafts and woodcuts made by the mentally retarded will be held at the Fine Arts Cen- ter of Clinton on Satur- day and Sunday, Septem- ber 25 and 26. All of the items shown will be made by the residents of Latham Estates, Latham, Illinois and will include ceramics, plastic resin objects and prints made from wood- cuts. The mentally retarded residents at Latham Es- tates are working under a planned program set up by Mrs. Ann Minshew, activi- ties klirector and Mrs. Dee Rothwell, amateur artist. The average resident at Lathzm Estates has an in- telligence quotient of 20- 37, roughly equivalent to that of a 12-15 year-old child. Many of them re- spond well to creative pro- jects and show originality as well as a strong feeling for color. The creative activities program provides the men- tally retarded resident with a socially acceptable out- let for his energy and teaches him through trial and error to complete a task. Many residents, con- sidered .to be non-function- ing, respond well to crea- tive activity and it opens tl)e door to communica- tion between  the resident mad tho who are trying to help him. The craft exhibition and sale will be open from 10:00 a.m. 6:00 p.m. September 25 and 26 at the Fine Arts Center of Clinton, 119 West Macon Street.

There are two important considerations when travel- ing with children -seeing to their safety and amuse: ment. Attention to these two concerns will make for a more enjoyable and safe trip for mother and dad also. Child safety while travel- ing requires the following precautions: - Seat children as far away from the driver as possible, preferably in the back seat. - Instruct them not to stick their arms or heads out of the windows. - Caution them about distracting the driver in any way. - Forbid them from playing with door handles or buttons. Playtime activities, or amusements, are the other area of concern for parents when vacationing with chil- dren. The key word here is "variety". "Surprise tactics" can be used effectively.
