.RACINE SUNDAY lULLEtlN .7 'Sunday, July 25, 1965 Sanders Park, xy^ miles Southwest of Racine between Meecliem and Wood roads, is one of tiie largest at 80-acr/s, A favorite spot for birdwatchers, it has concession stands, playgrounds, fireplaces, restrooms, eight picnic areas, and an overnight camp site. in Racine —Journal-Timca Photos No matter how fed up a Racine resident might become with the concrete, the din or the 1965 speed of living, he can erase part of the hurt by fleeing—in almost any direction—to one of the county or city parks. Ranging in size from 1 to approximately 80 acres, they offer quiet walks among flowers and trees or a secluded spot to sit in the shade and eat a sandwich on a 30-minute lunch break. Tabor Park, an acre roadside stop at Highway 32 and 5-Mile Road, has cookout facilities and tables. Pritchard Park, 25 acres, below, Ifls a day camp site for youth groups, picnic tables, p^y equipment. It's just a few miles west of the city oi Highway 11. And thougl^it isn't part of Pritchard, youngsters like James Deris, 10, of 1351 Oregon St., and Robert Christensin, 10, of 1434 Indiana St., find exploring the adjoining fiel^ with its single oak and pine trees and mviteriously numbered stones / fascinating. Few passersby on the road nearby ever notice it. fhe few who do may tell you the name of the place is potier's field, or one in a 1,000 might mow the official name of it— / Oak Cemetery. Stone; mark the graves of more than 435 forgotten people who wire buried there by the county becausr they were destitute at death or without friends. Numb^s on the stones correspond with numbers, and perhaps-rif they were known—names and addresses, in a book kept at the I County Home. A rose hedge Surrounds the little memorial field and once a year, ^rough the bequest of a former Racine County Board d Supervisors member, flowers, or wreaths, tf some other token of remembrance is placed there. No place in the county is quieter. Lincoln Park just off Spring St. on Vale, features diamond, paths along the Root River, play equipment, bowling on the green, three picnic areas, a baseball two shelter buildings, running water and 31 acres. Racine Health Fund Or one can walk along Lake Michigan on the shade-dappled lawns of Zoo Park on N. Main St., below, browsing among animal and bird sanctuaries of the zoo or eating and resting in one of several picnic areas. accommof^te parents of seri- heard of Indian families who ousJy •handicapped children so that the parents can participate in their care, can be instructed and can practice procedures they will help It is hard to believe that only a relatively few years ago hospitals permitted parents to visit their hospitalized young children only once or twice a week. A better understanding of the needs of children as demonstrated in studies of child growth and development is resulting in a number of changed procedures in caring for the sick youngster, notes the Racine Health Fund, a United Fund agency. Until a baby is about 6 months old, if he must be hospitalized, he adjusts quite well to his new surroundings. However, from age 7 months to 5 years the experience is a more difficult one. Preparing Them Therefore, special attention has to be given to this group of children. Older children (ages 5-10) may be prepared for hospitalization in a variety of ways. Books and films and visits to the hospital can help or an adult may phrase the questions that they believe may be troubling the child so that the problem is discussed. In recent years hospital ! surroundings for children have been made more home like. Toys and play areas are available so that the child can be active not only physi- ically but also as an opportunity to express his feelings through play. Visiting hours are more flexible and daily visiting is a common practice. There are opportunities for parents to help on the ward and there is also a slow but growing trend for hospitals to arrange for mothers of the very sick young child to stay with him and to help care for him. "Right to Protest" It is accepted that for young child to be upset when his mother leaves is a natural and healthy reaction — he has a right to protest a bit An apathetic or uncaring at titude may be a sign of trou ble. Some new hospitals pro vide a residential service to carry out when the child returns home. Once Americans smiled we 'accompany their members to the hospital. Now we are learning to use the strengths of family life on behalf of the sick child. TOP QUALITY DIAMOND RINGS PRICES Modern Hair setting of 14K gold holds o blazing solitaire diomond.
