Ruth Byrn, coordinator of Social Work Services for MUDDS. agreed, but said Arkansas still lacks sufficient resources foi the menially retarded. "What we need is birth to death resources of all kinds." she said. "We don't just need an Institution.' EXAMPLES In many cases, for example, 9 mentally retarded child docs, not need to be permanently in stitutionalized. Depending or the degree of his retardation lie can live at home and re ceive training at a day service center or at a sheltered work shop. Some mentally retarded persons also could participate in a work activities center or even live independently. One of the many obstacles In (^institutionalizing child sometimes is the parent. Some times, the officials explained, a parent fears that the commu nity facilities might not be as [ram in that locality so t h a t l c h i i ccutd get m a r k e t a b l e job maj community, The reasons that some par- cnts prefer their children to re- m a i n institutionalized do not (it into any neat categories. "You have 10.000 families and you'll have 10.00Q examples." said Mrs- Byrn. r.KNEKALlZATION However, she did offer one generalization. "1 feel that if and when there is parental resistance to the ret u r n of a retarded adult into the home, the resistance can almost always tie traced down to parental anxiety about b e i n g program 1C CGUUl fci:t mm [Moduli; JOUj skills, the parent would fuel nucli better. Duke said. TO BE ADULT Everything "We try never lo forgot t h a t his is a child who is going to grow up lo nn adult, and he Is {olng to have adult needs, in- :luding a need to live outside of lis family home just like cvcry- 0(!y else docs probably because mother and daddy are going to get old and infirmed one of Ihese days and parents worry about thai when they are in their early 20s," Mrs. Byrn said. Elderly parents also arc sometimes reluctant to remove their children from an in stitulion because, in Arkansas, lliere remains Hie question of: '.'What will happen to him when I die?" Would a severely rctardet adult who had left a institution find his name tacked on to thi bottom of a -lOO-name waiting list? John Duke, deputy comrnis sioner for residential services of MUDDS, said he knew of no real emergency case where d or adult. Often, the parent may feel that the disabled child would \K safer in an institution, Mrs. M a r k h a m aid was not for Ihe record, and she identified Mrs. Johnton, who originally bad not ipcn asked to join in the inlcr- 'iow. as her wilness during the nterview. ISoth Mrs. M a r k h a m and Mrs. 3yrn told a reporter that any of heir comments in a story able lo cope Ihe dependency needs of the disabled person. "You and I have trouble taking care of ourselves. If you have someone who is either totally or greatly dependent on you for the most basic life needs--everything from income right on to emotional support-you'd feel pretty anxious about a community facility, she said the return of a mentally retarded person to the home might mean that a lower middle-income mother might have to quit working lo stay at home. "But with a day care fa- il." Without cility there, we have the practical problems and also the anxiety taken care of," Mrs. Byrn said. And. she said, if the parent knew that when his child is 16 or 18 years old. there would be a good rehabilitation service REDUCED PRICE On this neat, well-kept 3 bedroom brick with 2 balhs, living room, den hltchen with all buiHIns. double garage, beautiful lawn, nice covered patio lot outdoor entertaining, and newly carpeted.

Another problem facing such parents is the adjuslment of ac cepting a child back into the family when he has been awa\ for several years. If the retarded person is an adult, tin adjustment, obviously, couli become even more difficult. Duke compared the latter sit nation with a person's having to decide whether he wants hi aging parents to live with him or in a nursing home. SECURIT YDES1RED There is also the parental de sire for security of the retardec should bo rend by someone else In the MRDDS central office. A public Information officer rend Ihe story, but he did not demand removal of any section. Officials of Ihe colony and MRDDS do not advocate deins- Ututionalizing all rclardcd persons--only those who have reached their optimum level of development at Ihc colony nnd or Ihosc who would be as well off or hctlcr off in a home. The best institution is not as good as a poor home." said' Duke. "What we're Interested in Is making sure that when a person is discharged from one of our facilities, he's discharged into as good ns or better selling for him to have a chance at a happy and normal human existence." added Mrs. Byrn. "We don't want anyone to drop the ax on us n i l of a sudden and say discharge so many by a certain time." There arc m a n y reasons why a person should be deinsUtu- Lionaliml. it feasible, the officials said. Duke noted, tor example, that residential facilities are more and more addressing themselves to the severely and profoundly retarded." By deinstitutlonalizing Ihc higher-level retarded persons, the institutions would have more room for others. nut in Mrs. Byrn's opinion, the best reasons for deinstilu- tionnlizntlnn are found in tha " R i g h t s of Menially Retarded Persons." an official statement of the American Association on Mental Deficiency. Among those rights are: --The right lo live In Iho least restrictive individually ap- propriale environment. --The light ployment and pay for a f a i r day's labor. --The right to be part of f a m i l y . to gainful .em- to a fair day's IIUiUIHiraiKIIM^ Campus Calendar Sit- MONDAY Public School Art, Arts Center Gallery. 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Lecture.

'iiassis made one brief visit to .'cw Hampshire after his Olym- ic Refineries, I n c . , started coking a refinery site there. ~he day-to-day spokesman was i\ r ew Hampshire resident. Peer J. Booras. Here, in the List if four reports on the refinery I a n , is a look at Olympic's lo- al representative and his asso- ialcs. By MICHAEL I'UTZEL CONCORD, N.H. ( A P ) -- Vhen Olympic Refineries, Inc,, unveiled plans for a S600 mil- ipn oil refinery, the man who did 'most of the talking for the company was Peter J. Booras, Greek-American businessman vho has dabbled in politics. Variously described as a spokesman or New Hampshire ·cpresentalive for Aristotle Dnassis' refinery company, Booras has been among the most active supporters of the iroposal to build the comp!e on the New Hampshire seaeost 3oth be and Olympic say he is not on the company payroll las no financial interest in the project and is acting only as citizen who believes the state would be well served by a 'inery. Booras heads a greeting-care nanufa Keene, of his Olympic's temporary~offices in oncord and Dover. WRITE IN In 1972, he organized a New Hampshire primary write-in campaign for then-Vice Presi dent Spiro T. Agnew to counter what Booras perceived as pres sure on President Nixon to dump Agnew from the ticket. Booras also ran in tliat pri mary as a candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S Senate. Although he outspen his competitors by a substantia margin, he lost the race. Campaign records show the Booras campaign was financec almost entirely by $30,000 of th candidate's personal funds anc more than $15,000 in contribu tions from outside the state. One of the largest individua contributors listed by Booras was William Hammerman of 1 Light St., Baltimore, Md. whi gave $1,500. That address is lh office of the Hammerman Or ganization, Inc., headed by H. "Bud" Hammerman, identi Tied by the Justice Departmen as an Agnew confidant who se up the cash payment schemi for illegal kickbacks. A reporter telephoning th' Hammerman Organization wa told that no William Ham merman is associated with tlv mortgage banking firm. New Hampshire Ally. Gen Warren Rudman recently, nounced his office is in vestigating several apparen violations of the state campaigi finance law in the Booras cam paign. Booras says he .was respon sible for getting Olympic Presi dent Constantine E. Gratsos in terested in New Hampshire a a potential site for a refinery. Booras did not elaborate. Before Olympic announced mblicly that it was looking at ew Hampshire as a refinery site, several Greek-American real estate men began buying options for land on Durham 3 oint and on Ihe Isles of Shoals, small islands off the coast. Evenlually these options put ogelher about 3.500 acres on the mainland, most of it farm and woodlands. The options promised more ban $5 million if the land is purchased. No firm estimale is ivailable on the price paid for he land options, but from what is known, they probably cost several hundred thousands dol- ars. Booras said the real estate nen were acting "on my be- lalf" but lhat he was actually spending "Mr. Gratsos' money." B u s i n e s s associates o! Dnassis, however, say it is not lis style to risk his own money so early in such a risky venture. They suggest the option money camo from other sources who hoped to gain il he Olympic proposal went through. One source in New Hampshire's Greek-American community said "Papanicolaou told me that Onassis was paying for ihe promotion, nothing else." Nicholas F. Papanicolaou is an Onassis protege and listed in corporate records as vice president, treasurer and a director 3f Olympic Refineries Inc. George Pappademas. a Nashua real estate broker, helped Booras buy the land options, and town records show he xught a few parcels of land jordcring the refinery area for limself. Olympic spokesmen say the company owns the options, but they remain in Pappademas' name in town records. Since the town of Durham voted overwhelmingly against rezoning Durham Point, the op- Lions covered land on which the refinery cannot be built. Olympic Refineries Inc., appeared to withdraw to Onassis' offices in New York after it lost the showdown in Durham. -It announced the closing of Its Concord, N.H., office, and refinery opponents began to drift back to their everyday lives. Then, at a special town meeting in Newmarket just south of Durham, the townspeople voted in April to welcome a refinery proposal for their community. Olympic sprang back to life. Engineers were summoned to redraw their plans, and meetings we^e scheduled with the governor. "Of course we are going .-to make a proposal.' 1 announced Olympic President Gratsos. "It would be ridiculous if we didn't.' Manual For Terrorists May Serve As Textbook For SLA WASHINGTON (AP) -- Patricia Hearst's description of a San Francisco bank robbery as a "revolutionary act" could have been taken straight from the pages of a five-year-old training manual for political terrorists. It is called "Minimanual for the Urban Guerrilla." and was written by a Brazilian revolutionary named Carlos Marig- hella. The -12-page pamphlet is one of at least three which the Federal Bureau of Investigation thinks may serve as textbooks (or the Symbionese Liberation Army in its avowed campaign of insurrection. In the latest tape recording of Miss Hearst's voice, received by police lost Wednesday, the 20-year-old newspaper heiress says she was a willing participant in the April 15 holdup of a branch bank by the SLA. But the FBI, continuing to operate on the premise that she was kidnaped by the terrorist band on Feb. 4 and is being held against her will, has named Miss Hearst as a material witness rather than an accused criminal in the robbery that netted $10,960. Marighella's manual calls such robberies the most popular type of terror attack on the establishment, one that some- times Is used "as a sort of pre- iminary examination for the urban guerrilla in his apprenticeship for the techniques of revolutionary warfare." If it is assumed that Miss Hearst actually has joined tha SLA, one government source said, "the bank robbery could have been staged as their way of initiating her into membership, a test of fire." Other echoes of the Marig- lella pamphlet in the latest tape Include Miss Hearst's assertion that the bank holdup "forced the corporate state to lelp ' finance- the revolution" and that such acts are dis- jnguished from ordinary crime 3y the purpose for which tha rcionev is to be used Marighella wrote that t h' e "tremendous cost of the revolutionary war must fall" on capi- ialists. imperialists and money interests. BLAMED Marighella was blamed for numerous bank holdups and other crimes in Brazil in the late 1960s. In November, 1963, five months after his manual on urban insurrection was published, he was killed in a police ambush. His booklet was reprinted in the- United Slates in 1970 by an ._ "feu say: , "mcarftaffonl to move? fUwL carft If you really want your new home, have it built now! Costs keep climbing.
