Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa rturdoY Tho Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., April 9, 1971 Society for Women Features Tiny Baby Makes It, Goes Home WOODRUFF. Ariz. (AP) — Sherri Lynn Scorse was a doll-like 23 ounces when she was born prematurely last December. A doctor said she was so small she couldn't support life. But after heart surgery and a three-month stay at Good Samaritan hospital in Phoenix, Sherri Lynn now weighs 4 pounds 9 ounces and is home with her parents, Jerald and Shirley Scorse of Woodruff. Two days after Sherri Lynn was born Dec. 16, Dr. Robert Haley of nearby Holbrook decided to send the tiny child to the better-equipped hospital at Phoenix, 200 miles southwest of here. “Miracle” Needed “He tried to prepare us not to get our hopes up,” said Scorse, a loan officer with a Holbrook bank. “He was very kind. He said, ‘Don’t get attached to it. It can't support life. It would take a miracle.’ She was just like a little doll.” Scorse remembers his wonder at seeing the tiny baby, which weighed I pound 7 ounces at birth. She had blonde hair. Sherri Lynn later lost four ounces. Doctors at Good Samaritan performed heart surgery on the 12-inch-long infant to get blood flowing properly to her lungs. Intensive Care She was placed in a special Intensive care room, and moni- j toring devices were set up to watch her heartbeat. Special: nurses sat by her bedside day and night. Scorse, 30, and his wife, 29.1 have three other children, a boy 18 months old, and two! daughters, 7 and 4.

Wyeth's 'Virgin' In Tokyo By John Roderick TOKYO (AP) — American artist Andrew Wyeth’s first overseas exhibition opened in Tokyo Friday after a hasty compromise with Japanese censors over his 1969 nude study “The Virgin”. Unpacked a week ago, the paintings were held up by for $43,500. Insurance covered $25,000 and customs officers after thev donations, including $7,800 from1 took a startled look at “The the hospital itself, have paid for all but abo ut $2,000. Pi Beta Phi Unit Plans Luncheon IOWA CITY - The Iowa City Alumnae chapter of Pi Beta Phi will give a founder’s day luncheon April 20. The event will take place at 12:30 at the Highlander supper club. The luncheon is open to all members of Pi Beta Phi. Reservations are to be made by Friday with Mrs. Roy J. Koza. 340 Hutchinson avenue, Iowa City, Iowa 52240. Virgin”. An essay in innocence, it portrays one of Wyeth’s nubile Finnish neighbors in Maine. Japanese censorship of pornography is a whimsical thing that lets almost everything you can think of get by but frowns absolutely on pubic hair. It is diligently air brushed out of all publications. Verdict Hurriedly called in. the censors—six men and a woman — huddled secretly at Tokyo airport while the exhibition director, Perry Rathbone, cu rator emeritus of the Boston Art museum, chewed his fingernails. The verdict: “The Virgin’’ could be exhibited, but something would have to be done about the catalog, where the picture was already printed in full length. Working feverishly all Thursday night, the printers replaced it with a half-length reproduction and had the catalog chastely ready for the opening Friday afternoon. Sponsored by the Nihon Kci-zai Shimbun, a leading economic newspaper, the exhibition will run until May 19, then move — minus one picture. “Thin Ice’’, that had been borrowed from a Japanese museum for the Tokyo show only—to Kyoto to be shown from May 25 to June 30. Art Enthusiast Rathbone, who began preparations for this unusual odyssey to Japan a year ago, describes Wveth as “Ameri ca’s most popular painter, probably the most popular in the history of American culture.” Why were the Japanese chosen as the first to see his works abroad? One reason, Rathbone said, was Jim Enjoji, the art enthusiast publisher of Nihon Keizai who never misses a chance to reprint lavish color works in his paper's supplements. He met Rathbone in Boston, fell in love with Wyeth’s work and commissioned Rathbone to bring the show to Japan. The other reason is the Japanese love for nature, which Enjoji was sure would find an echo in Wyeth’s brooding masterpieces of the Maine and Pennsylvania countryside. By Ann Schrader Volunteer training, general organization and a recent meeting with local law enforcement agencies were discussed by Rape Crisis Line, a Cedar Rapids area group, at a meeting Monday night at the YWCA. The group, which is currently in the formative stages, hashed over what needs to be done to get the group on its feet. It was agreed by persons attending the meeting that persons such as the county attorney and hospital personnel need to be contacted for informational and coordinational purposes. The topics of self-defense for volunteers and providing the rape victim with options at the time of her phone call were also raised. It was noted by Martha Ward, a member of the group, that persons who will provide the training for Rape Crisis volunteers are presently going through the Foundation II training program to receive telephone counseling experience. The Rape Crisis training program will be drawn up and adapted from Foundation II’s program. The recent meeting with I a w enforcement officials from Marion, Cedar Rapids and Linn county was called “a good beginning” by persons who attended the meeting. The police offered to work with the Rape Crisis group in educational ways for both the crisis line volunteers and for the police themselves. The meeting was described as the first of possibly many meetings. The role the volunteer would play in helping the rape victim was brought up and police and Rape Crisis members agreed if a rape victim requests a volunteer from the group may accompany the victim as long as she doesn't interfere. Also concluded at the meeting was that any time a volunteer felt the police interrogation was improper, or the police objected to something the volunteer did, the situation w'ould be discussed at a later date so a correction could be made. Ruth Kremenak, executive director of the YWCA, gave a report on the current status of the Women’s Resource center, which is sponsored by 17 groups in the area. Mrs. Kremenak explained that at the last women’s center meeting goals and objectives were adopted although she called them “open-ended.” The objectives are: 1 To provide information and referral services responding to needs of women; to offer an employment referral service designed for women; to provide crisis type services; to develop individual and group programs; to relate to the educational needs of all wxtmen and to be an advocate for all women. The women’s center's goals, at the present time, are to “provide opportunities for all women to individually and collectively learn, grow and find viable alternatives to their present situation.” The planned center, it was agreed, would be housed at the YWCA. Three tactical forces, needs, Mrs. Kremenak said. “Although it may be possible to set funding for a certain project, the continuity of the center is something to think about,” she said. “It’s still too early to give positive answers.” Bonnie Frowick was elected recently to head up the women's center and Carol Rickey was named recorder. The need for a women’s center has grown out of various projects, Mrs. Kremenak said. The Rape Crisis Line may be working closely with the center and it has been suggested that Crisis Line may be housed in the center.
