(AP) -- Tooting tugboats, a wooden doll house and a "Feeley Meeley" box are among items that can be checked out from a toy ibrary for mentally handicapped children. The toy library opened Friday and is called TREES (Teaching. Resources for Educating Exceptional Children). "It's the first such library for the retarded in the state where you can go to take a toy out," said Ilerie Tiobey; supervisor of state health libraries who originated the library idea. Trees got off the ground with $1,500 and the loan of a librarian from the state library. It Is at the North Central Regional Center, an agency that helps he mentally retarded and their families. The toy library operates like a traditional book library. Parents check out toys for home use and get an evaluation card .6 tell the center's instructors tiow the child liked the toy, how long he played with it and whether it required supervision. The toys serve . as teaching materials for retarded children, many of whom have great difficulty grasping and holding objects.

The Pentagon, recently told Congress that the current 11,000 medical officers were unable to provide full care, especially for families of servicemen. Officials said they had received Civil Service Commission approval in this case to waive a regulation under which retired regular military oficers must forfeit nearly half of their retirement pay if .they obtain civilian jobs with the federal government. : .' . : The Pentagon announcement said 'the objective is to assure that the doctors rehired as civilians will receive pay comparable "to the median incomes of physicians in civilian communities who have ,been in practice for 20 or more years." Under the new program, the physicians will be eligible for starting Civil Service salaries ranging from $4,671 to $24,247 a year. Thus, for example, a doctor who retired as a Colonel and by the Energy Council.

Mrs. Szabo cited the case of one severely retarded 214-year- old girl who was unable to hold anything when she started attending school at the center. She was given a tugboat with a sneeze-ball attachment which, when depressed, made a."toot" and raied a smokestack lid. 'Now, she's practicing with both hands," Mrs. Szabo said. "As she squeezes it, there's r e i n f o r c e m e n t . W e a r e strengthening her fingers so she can hold a cup. Before, we couldn't get her to close her hands." The toys are simple and sturdy, and some are made especially for the retarded. One is called a "Feeley Meely." a box with a hole on each side into which a child reaches to feel objects placed inside. It can be used to sharpen the senss of touch by leaching the difference between round and square, or hard and soft. Completes Training Marine Cpl. Carl J.

Carpenters Ask Wage increases CHICAGO (AP) -- The nation's carpenters, trying to beat inflation, a r e going after contracts containing pay hikes of 12 to 14 per cent and maybe even more, building industry sources say. ' And such wage settlements, they report, will mean another jump in the cost of new h^qmes, since carpentry' stakes one- of the biggest: slices o f ; all sinle- family'homebuilding costs. "We're concerned now," said Robert Sheehin, an official of the the Naliphar. : Association of Home Builders, 'at the-annual covention of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters: and Joiners. "There's no doubt; wages are going higher; We'see fears of inflation being reflected already in some of .the .settlements." " · . '. Union officials and workmen interviewed defend their wage scales, saying they have contributed relatively little to the inflationary pressure on homebuilding costs which have risen 40 per cent since 1969.
