Pttwrt* who have a mentally retarded child who must be in- stltirtionalired frequently face un MHevabte problem*. Within the past week I have been contacted twice toy parents with children mey can no longer control, children who represent a physical and emotional danger to the other children to the family. When they come pleading tor it is terrible to have to say. dont' think there is much 1 can do which can help you immediately." Illinois has two institutions for fhe mentally retarded, one at When — and if — we have afl of these things, the problem wffl not be solved, but It wtD be ton- proved. file •Stow Learnt' Somewhat related to this same field is the progress being made by more and more school districts in giving opportunities to the •'slow learner" of limited mental capacities. The state is encouraging this work, as it should. A community has as much responsibility to help those who have a harder time helping themselves, a» ft does to the more gifted. Here also, there is a long way to go. vrlth far too many school districts doing little or nothing for these children.

That is easy! This young lady has just been reading a success story (her own) in the pages of her savings account book. Months ago, the story started with her dream of a super deluxe vacation trip. Fortunately, she didn't stop with dreaming, but took steps to make her dream come true. First step was to open a savings account here. Then she set up and faithfully followed a program of every- pay-day saving. Her regular deposits plus compound interest now add up to "what it takes." In exactly the same way you can make your dream come true.
