GalensAid Handicaped C ii ren

Handicraft Articles
The boys and girls who come to the
Galens workshop on the ninth floor
of University Hospital every after-
noon present individual problems to
the workshop instructor.
Some come in wheel chairs, some
in braces or on crutches, some with-
out encumbrances of any kind. But
the object of the workshop is to make
each of them as self-reliant as pos-
sible, for under their present situa-
tion they tend to depend on others.
Cure Homesickness
Donald, age 9, a cardiac case, was
very homesick and unhappy until he
came to the Galens workshop. The
doctor permitted him only a limited
amount of activity, so the other kids
did most of the work on the toy
troop ship he chose to make. How-
ever, Donald painted the boat him-
self with camouflage colors and also
made some plexi-glass pins. He was
no longer unhappy and eagerly looked
forward to his afternoons in the shop.
Fred, age 11, came to the shop fol-
lowing a leg amputation. He had en-
dured much pain and had begun to
feel self-pity. The first day in the
shop he remarked, "I suppose you
come up here to work so that you
can forget your pains and troubles."
The instructor tactfully guided the
conversation toward some of the work
being accomplished in hospitals by
wounded soldiers. This aroused Fred's
Worked in Bed
Fred's activities were limited by the
fact that he had to stay in bed. The
instructor learned that Fred had
previously made some clay dishes and
suggested that he try making a cup.
Fred went to work and, by painstak-
ing effort, produced a model of handi-
craft. He presented the cup to his
younger sister.
By now Fred was up in a wheel
chair and walking on crutches. He
was eager to make some of the things
the other children had been making.
He made a pipe rack, a cutting board
and some plexi-glass pins. He was
proud that he could use the saws
independently while standing on
crutches. It was not obvious to him
that the instructor was standing by,
supervising his efforts.
Dorothy, age 13, has been in Uni-
versity Hospital severalbtimes for a
recurring ailment. She was very busy
during her last hospitalization, for
she wanted to take home at least one
present for each member of the fam-

"We lost the last peace and we are
in greater danger now of losing this
peace," Neil Staebler, charter mem-
ber of the first chapter that was or-
ganized of the American Veteran's
Committee, stated.
"The best hope for winning it lies

he said. Staebler, 40 year old former
Ann Arbor businessman, was a Navy
lieutenant stationed in Washington
and was instrumental in organizing
the Washington AVC chapter in Oc-
tober, 1944. Staebler returned to Ann
Arbor last week after receiving an
honorable discharge.
Explaining that there are two kinds
of veterans, the kind who wish to for-
get the problems of peace and war
and the kind who are forward-look-
ing, anticipating the problems to
world unity, Staebler stated that AVC
is intended primarily for the latter
Outlining AVC policy, Staebler said,
"Externally, we must strive for the
most effective international organiza-
tion and secure internal support for
it. This problem is highlighted be-
cause of the atomic bomb.
"There can be no more solution of
external problems by war. This is our
last chance."
Day, Missing,

Lt. Bluford O. Day, former member
of the Engineering English depart-
ment, who had been missing in ac-

a year, was declared officially dead

department from his mother revealed
Possessor of the Silver Star and

enemy gunfire.

On her next hospitalization she plans
to make a milking stool.
Returns to Workshop
Robert, age 13, returns to the hos-
pital at frequent intervals. The last
time, he was scheduled for an opera-
tion, but he had a few days before-
hand in which to work in the shop.
He tried more difficult projects, such
as a model aircraft carrier and a.
sandwich tray.
Frequently he took time out from
his own work to help other children
with sawing and other work which
they were unable to do. He sawed out
the parts of a boat for a boy who
was on a frame, and made some plexi-
glass pins for a boy who was con-
fined to a ward with a serious heart
