WHAT YOUR PRESCHOOL CHILD does all day, the amount of time he spends on various activities can indicate how he is developing physically, mentally and socially. Over the past two and a half years child psychologists at Harvard University have been scientifically studying the moment-to-moment activities of preschool children.

IT’S 5.30 IN the morning at Melville Island’s Rea Point, where the day always begins with the weather.

IT’S PROBABLE THAT, for every Canadian teenager who saw The Ernie Game, Don Owen’s award-winning CBC-NFB movie about youthful alienation in Montreal, 10 saw Wild In The Streets, a Hollywood potboiler with a similar theme. Make that 20. Oh, make it 50.

1 CANADIAN IN 5 IS POOR, MAD—AND GETTING MADDER

CANADA’S POOR, three million of them women, have been slow to public anger. That may not be counted on much longer, for they are proving quick to learn.
