HERBERT SHIPPEN County Assessor By KELLY SMITH Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Sargent Shrivers have challenged concerned parents to help meet an aching deficiency: summer care for retarded children. An estimated 126,000 retarded babies are born each year. There are another eight million retarded people in the United States. "During the winter, many go to schools or special institutions," Shriver said; "But in the summer — while other children play in their neighborhoods, or vacaton with their families — retarded chldren are left alone. The Shrivers sponsor a month- long day camp each summer for more than 100 retarded children in the Washington area. It has become a model. "Five years ago I tried to find a camp for several retarded children," Eunice Shriver, sister of the late president John F. Kennedy, said. "I found, surprisingly, there was none. "So we started one — here, at our home." From her example, six such camps have sprung up in Maryland, and many others in other sections of the country. Most days during the camp j one can find visitors at the Shrivers' 300-acre estate in Rockville, Md., a Washington suburb. They arrive at the e s t a t e, Timlawn, marveling: "Look at the pool," "What a beautiful view." "Isn't that den perfect." "Look at the pictures." They leave with quite different impressions: of a blind boy a child who couldn't speak but who has been taught to swim, of now says "hello," or two who feared groups, joining in a game. Johny Eiler, sports director :or the Kennedy family and a veteran of 18 years in exercise •or the retarded, directs the camp. For each child, there's a student counselor, usually a high school or college volunteers. There are only two requirements for the camp: children must be between 7 and 14 and toilet trained. Eunice Kennedy Shriver is tall, blue-eyed and the mother of five normal children. She las a sister, Rosemary, who is retarded. "Recreation," she said, "i s something anyone can understand. My daughter Maria understands, and can help. "For these retarded children it's particularly important since it's their whole lives. It's the best way to reach them, to make them feel loved and wanted. Normal children have other ways of learning and taking part in life — for a retarded child, recreation may be the whole communication." The Shrivers provide some 15 activities for the children's camp, from canoeing to climbing ropes. Each' child brings his own lunch, if he can, and the Shrivers provide milk. Most of the campers arrive by chartered bus from down>n Washington. Counselors come at 8 a.m. and stay for debriefings after the children eave. The campers come at 9 a.m. and stay until 3 p.m. Shriver, who heads the Office of Economic Opportunity, says other people should open their lomes for similar camps. Speaking to congressional wives recently, he said: "Why don't some of you go iiack to your states and look in,o this — on a bipartisan basis. Where are those big, rich Republicans? For that matter, where are some more Democrats? "This is the kind of project that anyone with a heart and space 'can do," he said. Shriver said some statistics claim only 3 per cent of retarded cases are the result of genetic or biological factors. The •est, he said, are environmen- tal. "Imagine what could be done if everyone played for a day with a retarded child. The illness is in society," Shriver said. "We need everyone's help ... everyone's back yard." Ever add diced pineapple, j along with diced ce'ery, to chicken for salad? Nice for a ladies' lunch.
