ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Sectwfi* Pnges 18 to 22 Metnbtt of The AwwelMtd Prtst, 5c Pet Copy ALTON, ILL,, FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 19S3 fittibliihtd Jinutry 15, Cerebral Poky Treatment h Given by Wilfred Buddell Wilfred Buddell, physio>ther- npist, has returned in Alton and is presently engaged In giving prescribed treatment to children afflicted With cerebral palsy. Buddell who took training as a therapist in St. Louis was sent to Cockesville, Md., for specialized training in cereberal palsy by the Madison .County Chapter of Illinois Crippled Children, Inc. Buddell Is presently working at Alton Memorial Hospital hut according to C. R. DeVault, president of the local chapter of the Illinois Crippled Children, Inc., the facilities there for his work are limiled. "More space Is needed for this very necessary and hu- mnltarian work," Mr. DeVault said, "and it is hoped lhat some public spirited citizen or citizens of Alton can suggest another location until such time as arrangements can be made of a permanent nature." Eventually, space may be made available as the school building program relieves the present shortage of rooms. .Equipment for this work is being provided on a cooperative basis. The Madison County Chapter of Illinois Crippled Children', Inc., has not only paid the expenses of Buddell's specialized training and his salary but in addition is buying material which high school slu- rlenls are making into the necessary training aids. A clinic is conducted each month at the Alton Memorial Hospital by medical doctors who examine children and and then recommend the treatment to be given by Buddell. DeVault emphasized the fact, that treatment by fhe physio-therapist is given only as directed by the medical doctors cooperating in the program.

Telegraph Want Ails Click IllinoisamPlan Conference on Proposed Park WASHINGTON /P - Tlllnolsfins interested In preserving the Illinois- Mississippi Canal area for recreational purposes went into a second round of conferences today. I The Illinois • Mississippi Canal i and Sinnissippi Lnke Commission had dales this morning with Brig. Gen. B. I... Robinson of the Army Corps of Engineers and this afternoon with Secretary of Ihe Interior McKay. Chairman Orville O. Chapman and other members of the bipartisan legislative commission Thursday began their discussions with Interior Department officials. National Parks Service Director Conrad Wirth and Albert M. Day, director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, both said their agencies would cooperate in a study to see what could be done with the canal area. Wirth, however, said the area probably "would not qualify" as a national park. Han Appointments The commission also had appointments today with Sens. Douglas (D-I11) and Dirksen (R-Ill). Douglas told a reporter Thursday he favors recreational development of Ihe canal and Sinnissippi Lake in the Rock River "provided it can be done without undue expense to the federal government." He added: "I believe in local self-government. It seems to me that this is something that could be worked out. through the joint effort of the federal and state governments." Rep. Allen (R-I1I1 threw his "full, support, behind the national park idea and had something to say on the cost: "From most reliable sources I have learned that it would cost the federal government a's much to abandon the area and put it back in its original state as it would to develop it as a national park providing recreation and conservation facilities." Allen said such facilities would serve "over a million people residing in Northwest Illinois, Eastern Illinois, Eastern Iowa and Southern Wisconsin." Menace to Health He said there would be "irreparable damage and a menace to the health of thousands" if the canal area were abandoned. Chapman also said it should be a federal responsibility and other commission members agreed. Slate Sen. Dennis 'Collins declared, "The federal government created the canal, brought many changes in the area, and caused heavy investments in property. The federal government is under a strong moral obligation not to abandon if." The Army Corps of Engineers in 19f)l announced plans to abandon the canal, which was built in 1907 for navigation. Thomas Casey, Illinois director of waterways, said the canal now is "obsolete for transportation." Glen D. Palmer, director of Ihe Illinois Department of Conservation, and Sam Parr, his assistant, also pleaded for preservation of the area. "We would like to have your support to see it maintained by a federal agency," Parr lold Day.
