Garden Decor Artificial plants and trees will be used to create a garden scene which will be centered by a towering and colorful four-sided pedestal representing the season of the years and the .seasons of life: Spring, done in tone of green, represents infancy; summer in golden hues is the carefree days of childhood; fall with its rustic colors depicts adulthood and middle- a g e ; and winter with snowflakes falling against an ice-blue background denotes the "Golden Years." Male residents of the center will serve as escorts for the models, some of whom will appear in wheel chairs, in walkers, with canes and crutches. Supplementing the corps of models to show a good cross section of clothes for every age will be employes from each department of the home: laundry, kitchen, office maintenance, nursing and nursing aides.

Most of the 175 residents of the home are pitching in to insure the success of the event by making colorful ecology posters, preparing refreshments to be served at the close of the evening, and assisting in planning and general arrangement. in addition to making useful and decorative articles to be exhibited and offered for sale as an added attraction. The affair is open to the public for the donation of one dollar. Need for Lift The home's activities director Mrs. Shirley Bernard, who is working with activity director Mrs. Jennie McManis in arranging the show, told of the need for the lift. "About 75 per cent of our residents are in wheel chairs and their condition is such that many of them cannot leave their wheel chairs behind, so it's impossible to include them in outings. The hydraulic lift will provide a simple means for these patients to board or leave the bus without ever leaving their chairs," Mrs. Bernard explained. "We take several trips each year, including Grant's Farm and Marquette Park to see the autumn leaves; tour cities and communities to view Christmas lights; and we plan frequent picnics and trips to SI. Louis to see ballgames. We took a poll and found baseball" one of the favorites of everyone, men and women alike." The hydraulic lift purchase is a joint venture of the local center and the Calvin Johnson home in Belleville where plans are being completed for a Nov. 3 style show in benefit of the "lift fund."

McDANlEL CHICAGO (AP) - A "significant percentage" of hyperactive children have parents who were hyperactive or who have psychiatric problems, a psychiatrist says. The data indicate that "tho hyperactive child syndrome is passed from generation *o generation and may be a precursor of certain psychiatric illnesses," Or. Dennis P. Cantwell- of Angeles reports in the September issue of the Archives o f General Psychiatry, published by the Amerir t m Medical Association. Dr. Cantwell, associated with the UCLA School n f Medicine, compared 50 br»ys .diagnosed as hyperactive with 50 who were considcre.1 normal. Hyperactive children ar.i generally considered to be problems 4n school, and *ha use of drugs to control thf?c children has recently crea'ec! controversy among educators, the medical profession :nd congressmen. The syndrome is more common among boys and starts early in life. It is characterized by overactivity, short attention span, impulsiveness and excitability. These children, Cantweii noted, are discipline problems, have difficulty getting along with other children and have some learning problems. In his study, Cantwell found that nearly half of the parents of hyperactive children had psychiatric problems. None of the parents of the normal group was hyperactive. In both groups, fathers wc'e more apt to have psychiatric problems than mothers. Among the parent? of hyperactives there was a prevalence of alcoholism, sociopathy, hysteria and attempted suicides. Sociopaths' behavior is amoral or antisocial. Hysteria involves immature, impulsive and attention - seeking behavior. The psychiatrist said his study suggests that the hyperactive child syndrome may be a forerunner in childhout of alcoholism, sociopathy and hysteria in adulthood. Cantwell said his and oth^r studies do not make clear whether the syndrome is passed on to children by genetic inheritance or by environmental factors.
