Christine Smith, Michigan Lions' White Cane queen for 1977 and a University freshman, pledges her corneas for transplants during a visit to the Michigan Eye Bank offices at the U-M's Parkview Medical Center. Christine, blind since the age of 6, is assisted by Eye Bank director Patricia J. Krause. Although she is blind, Christine's corneas are healthy. Her blindness was caused by an optic nerve tumor. She will reign over White Cane Week in which local Lions Clubs will participate. A bucket drive will be conducted April 29 - May 1.

Therapy In The Kitchen. Miss Elsie Guthrie (left), a patient at the Parkview Medical Facility, tries her hand at using a portable mixer, with the help of Mrs. Gordon Allen, a student occupational therapist. Parkview's kitchen, part of a two-room apartment, is available to patients who wish to find out how well they will function again in their kitchens at home. The apartment will be used to house a college student or perhaps the entire family of a handicapped person, so that they can learn, on the spot, how to care for him. Patients also may practice household tasks before they go home.

Patient Is Teacher, Too. Mrs. Phyllis Carnahan (right) is a patient at the Parkview Medical Facility, but she is also a teacher. Here, she helps Anthony Sutters, another patient, learn to use a Braille typewriter. Parkview's vocational replacement program emphasizes self-help and initiative. Patients are often as effective teachers as the professional staff.
