SKILLFUL SHOE REPAIRING lAUMOERERX PICK-UP AND DELIVERY Phone 788 or 789 Opportunities to Participate Still Available Day camp for handicapped children, sponsored by the Iowa Society for Crippled Children and the Disabled, will open Thursday at 9 a. m. at the Monroe school under the supervision of Mrs. W. A. Carter, assisted by Miss Sally Houser. This will be Mrs. Carter's 3rd year as supervisor of the day camp. She is a teacher in the Mason City schools.

Last summer she was water safety director for the Red Cross at Clear Lake and this summer is water safety director at Roosevelt school. These day camps for handicapped children have been conducted in 6 Iowa cities during the past 2 summers. However, Mason City is the only city where the camp is held on an established public play ground. This gives the children the added advantage of association with the normal playground children. The opportunity of playing with normal children, participating in the same games and activities, helps the handicapped to attain a sense of security and relieves their nervous tension, aiding them to develop good play attitudes toward each other. "The interests and activities of these children closely parallel those of normal children," according to the director. Because of their brief interest span, there must be a changing and varied program. Through such activities as clay modeling, finger painting, weaving, motion songs, games, movies and the like, these children find an outlet for constructive ideas and interests. The children will participate in Gypsy day, July 30, and Championship day, Aug. 12 at East park. Through the facilities of the Red Cross, the children will be transported to and from the Monroe playground. Ten children have already been enrolled for this Day camp and a few more will be taken. For further information call 1569W. Walter Walker is county chairman of the Iowa Society for Crippled Children and Kenneth Waughtal in charge of Day camp.
