Cullen European Staff Correspondent N LONDON—"W h c u the baby cried .all the time, it meant that he didn't iovx me, so I hit. him." This is one J 'mother's explanation why her 3-week-oid bauy had' to' be admitted to a hospital with severe bruises. For every battered baby taken into hospital and there is at least one such case every day in England and Wales—there are probably 100 more treated by imuspectiong doctors. Parents who a 11 a c k their children either deny knowledge of how the child came to be Injured, or else they invent such implaiusible stores as "He caught his finger in the folding crib.'' • ; •" . But now, thanks tu encouragement from the United States, relief is In sight for the hundreds of children under 3 (most battered children fall into this age group) who are the victims of parental rage. A "Battered Ghildrcii's Unit" 'Is being set up .by the National Socieiy for ': the. Prevention of Cruelty to Children under the direction of Miss T Joan Court, 48, a psychiatric social worker ,who has received mutch of her training in, the United States. Miss Court has! worked as a toidwife in Clay County, Ker- tucky, • in tne eastern Appalachian Mountains,! making her rounds on horseback. She. has also studied as a Fullbright Scholar at Smith College, where Bhe took her. master's degree. And she is full of admiration for. the work that has been done in the United States in getting at the root causes of tht "Battered Baby Syndrome," as it is known in medical circles. "The unit I am heading here Is based very closely on the American model," Mis^ Court, an attractive brunette, explains. "It will not be a treatment center, ut we will be doing casework in depth with battered children's families. "Also, we will be on duty 24 hours a day, because small children are often attacked in the middle of the night when Ihey are crying." Miss Court has just leturrieti > i ^oncion f 'om a seven-week 'America, where she visited the Children's Bureau ir Washington, D.C., and the clinic set up by Dr. Brandt F. Steele professor of psychiatry at the University of Colorado. ;; Dr. Steele and his colleagues. have made an intensive study of 60 families where small children have been assaulted, and Ins findings will serve as guidance for the work being done in this field here in Britain. Who are the baby bashers? Child abuse: occurs not only among the poor, but among all classes of society, including university graduates, accoi'ding to Dr. Steele. Usually the parents are newly married and aged between 20 and 30. They are not necessarily aggressive people, hi fact, often they take, good care of their children as far as material wants, such as food and clothing, are concerned. But they are usually lonely, frightened people and socially isolated people." "They are the kind who keep the blinds drawn in broad daylight ar >d who have unlisted telephone numbers," Miss Court explains. "They are completely lacking; in maternal feeling, usually as a result of their own childhood, when they were deprived of love. Being emotionally deprived, they expect their baby to make them happy and, when the baoy fails to do so, they hit it." Usually it is the mother who attacks the baby, though t h e father is often present as a passive spectator. In the past, such cases of child abuse were treated as accidents, the parents glibly explaining that baby had had a fall. Radiologists became suspicious whei,, ,in. many cases, X rays showed that baby had multiple injuries that could not have resulted from any fall. '- Thanks to the widespread public interest in ttiis< finding, doctors in most American states are now required by law to report suspected oases of child neglect and abuse to police or to the appropriate children's agency. Such a law has not yet been enacted in Britain, which means that Miss Court will depend largely upon co-operation from hospitals in uncovering battered children cases. Her approach is not a punv tive one.

For the next six months, under substantial grants from the Ford Foundation and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting plus reduced rates by the telephone company, NET will broadcast simultaneously to some 130 stations for two hours on five nights a week. NET, with its Ford Foundation grant, has been sending programs on these stations on a once-a-week basis since last season. The expanded project started Monday night with a discussion program taped in Hong Kong involving four journalists analyzing the situation in Southeast Asia. Discussion shows are common on television these days and more to the point was the second hour, a film showing starving Biafrans, caught in a power struggle. The program was raggedly edited and indifferently filmed. It included interviews with leaders of Biafra explaining their war for self-determination, thin long interviews with Nigerian leaders propounding their views. But the heart of the program was the material showing small, children so thin that every bone showed; and resigned and frightened older people. Repersentatives of church groups explained with frustration their inability to provide enough food for refugees and dislocated families—one skimpy meal a day was the limit. The first drama of the week comes along Thursday night— 9-10 EST—with a production of "The Tin- Whistle" taped by a Net affiliate in Pittsburgh. ' Educational stations are high-minded, worthy and concerned, but it does seem that a little showmanship in programming would help. Commercial network viewers have, a legitimate gripe about the timing of television's only two prime-time news shows. CBS has long toned over a Tuesday night hour to its news division, and this season the 1011 p.m. period consists of a magazine-format show called "60 Minutes" every other week. Now NBC has come along with its new monthly magazine- format show called "First Tuesday" and, dropped it into a time period in: direct conflict. NBC, however, is a two-hour show, pre-empting its ..feature movie rerun. - • Viewers who catch the NBC premiere tonight will find an interview - with Dr. Philip Blaiberg, the survivor of an early heart transplant, and another with Rita' Hayworth. CBS at about the same time will have Otto Sktorzeny, an SS colonel under Hitler,, telling how he engineered the escape of Benito Mussolini from Italian protective custody in 1943. There will also be an interview with Vice President-elect Spiro T. Agnew. Vam 86nd Dial 2444)341 Roy D Bradford Dili 342-5946 Bob Garrison Dia. 244 1/56 Lyl* E.
