,,< Page 10 - Wednesday, July 9, 1980 YOUTH SERVICES By BARBARA CLARY CHILD ABusE At the beginning of this series on child abuse it was mentioned thal there are three basic areas of abusive behavior. They are: (I) Sexual abuse and or ex- ploitation, (2) physical abuse and or neglect, and (3) emotional abuse and-or deprivation. This article and the next two will deal with the topic of physical abuse and neglect of children: what it is, bow to identify it, why it occurs, and bow to prevent and treat abused children and their abusers. Physical injury, neglect, and malnutrition are perhaps the most easily detected forms of child abuse. The most common form of child abuse is over-punishment which occurs when corporal punishment is unreasonably severe. According to Department of Justice in- formation, "This usually happens when the parent is extremely agitated or angry, and either throws, or strikes the child too hard or con- tinues to beat him. Other forms of punishment may place a child in a situation where injury occurs or the child's health or parson is endangered." The combination of punish- ment and rage can be deadly! Reportable signs of suspected child abuse fall into the following categories: 1. The existence of any injury unusual for a specific age group such as fractures in infants. 2. History of previous or recurrent injury. 3. Unexplained injureis - inability to explain or discrepancies in explanations of child and parents, blame placed on a third party or object (fell out of bed), ex- planations that are in- consistent with medical diagnosis. 4. Excessive bruising in an area other than usual for age of child (shins, elbows, forehead). This includes specific bruising patterns such as a belt buckle mark, handprints, cigarette burns, etc. 5. Evidence of poor supervision; such as repeated falls down stairs, repeated ingestions of harm- ful substances. 6. Verbal threats against the life of a child made by parent(s) or guardian. 7. Reports from the child himself indicating abusive behavior. Some marks, scaring and injuries are not unusual and do occur. But many injuries are deliberate. It is not easy to tell how an injury hap- pened, however, there are some clues that experts follow in determining if an injury was intentionally inflicted. Burns should be Suspected if the shape of a recognizable object appears on the skin indicating prolonged contact, such as a hand held on an element of a heater or stove. Scald burns are suspect if the burn is located between the shoulder blades in- dicating the child was held down in hot water. Also a "zebra" effect of scald burns on the abdomen and upper legs may indicate that the child was held by the hands and legs under a running hot faucet, the tissue on their abdomen and upper legs folds up preventing burning in the creases. When children are forcibly held down in a sitting position in a tub of hot water, the center part of the buttocks, pressed tightly against the tub, is spared from burning, thus resulting in a "doughnut" shape burn. "Abuse should also be suspected when burns are pointed or deeper in the middle, suggesting that hot liquid was poured on, or pressed in (poker)." "Glove" burns and "sock" burns are the terms used to describe burns to the hands and feet as a result of forced immersion into hot water. A line indicating level of im- mersion is readily visible. There are clues for examining other types of injuries, such as whippings, bruises, head injuries, etc. If you wish more information on these please contact the Youth Services Counselor. It is important to be aware of signs of abuse and to REPORT suspected in- cidents. Showcase of Charlle Chaplin films to be shown The most famous of the silent clowns, Charlie Chaplin, the versatile and innovative Tramp, will be featured in a showdcase of feature and short silent film comedies presented by Santa Rosa Players July 11 and 12 in LincolnArts Center Theater, 709 Davis St., Santa Ro6.

"The Kid", 1921, was Chaplin's first.feature film and, as the first title notes, is "a comedy with a smile - and perhaps a tear." In "The Kid," Chaplin finds an abandoned baby in an alley. The cop won't let Charlie put the child back where he found it - and Charlie can't find anyone else to take the kid, so he unofficially adopts the boy as his own. "The Kid" was Jackle Coogan's first film and made him a star. Coogan was five years old when he made "The Kid," and his performance is considered remarkable. by Chaplin. In the film the little tramp continues to war with the modern world and its impersonal machines when, after a night on the, town, he returns to his strangely decorated home and engages in a losing battle with a folding bed. Chapli n made his masterpiece, "City Lights", in 1931, three years after the rest of Hollywood went "all talking, all singing, all dancing". The film exem- plifies the perfect blending of comedy and pathos that was Chaplin's trademark and is considered one of the most haunting love stories ever filmed. There are oice comic sequences with Harry Myers as a millionaire who befriends Charlie whenever that millionaire is drunk, but when he's sober can't remember ever meeting Chaplin. Working as a waiter on roller skates in the 1916 Short, "The Rink;" Chaplin demonstrates his agility and grace, and ability to develop every short of incidental gag. When a customer asks for the bill, Chaplin is able to determine what the gen- tleman had for dinner by inspecting his tie, lapel and ears. Beatles film to be shown at the library "Braverman's Condensed Cream of Beatles" will be the featured film at the Cloverdale Library's Family Film Night on July I0 at 7 p.m. This film follows "The Fab Four" from their humble beginnings to their world- wide fame.

The 1915 short, "A Night At The Show", is on_of the most famous of the early Chaplin comedies, and is based or one of his old music hall sketches. Chaplin aplsmrs in a dual role, as a drunken playboy in the orchestra, and as an obnoxious (and well- disguised) workman-0n-a- night-out in the balcony. In both guises, he disturbs his neighbors and interrupts the performance. Made and released in 1936, long after everyone in the industry had abandoned the form, "Modern Times" was Chaplin's last silent film and put an end to the tradition of silent screen comedy. In "Modern Times," regarded as the classic Chaplin comedy, the little tramp confronts the machine age and the assembly line and pulls out all the stops as he gives the audience a tour de force demonstratibn of his mic genius inc  where .he goes factory; as a nightwatchman on roller skates; a guinea pig for an automatic feeding maching.
