Game of the name strikes a blow for women's lib By JUDY KLEMESRUD New York Times NEW YORK When Jane Burrell got married last June, she decided to continue using her maiden name. The ground didn't shake, her in-laws didn't disown her, her marriage didn't dissolve. In fact, her husband, Michael Brunson, a sales trainee for a printing company, was very much in favor of her decision. "I just decided that my name before was very important to me, and that I didn't want to assume someone else's identity." said Miss Burrell, of Brooklyn, a 23-year-old portfolio assistant at a Manhattan investment banking company. "I wanted to retain my identity: I think a woman loses something of herself if she doesn't." Time was when the woman who continued to use her maiden name after marriage was considered rather daring, iconoclastic, and perhaps a bit of a weirdo. That is, of course, unless she was an actress or a writer or some other kind of professional. Nowadays, in the. wake of the women's liberation movement, more and more rank-and-file married women like Jane Burrell are continuing to use the names they were born with. Others are returning to their maiden names, while still others are using their maiden names as their middle names (as in Jane Doe or hyphenating their maiden and their married names (as in Jane This game of the name has become one of the major recent cause celebres of the women's movement, keeping feminist lawyers busy and resulting in a whole new crop of organizations to help inform women of their name rights. These include Centre for a Woman's Own Name, in Harrington. 111.; Name-Change, in Newtonville. Mass.; and the Olympia Brown League, in Milwaukee, Wis. "Unquestionably, there is a tremendous interest in maiden name retention right now." said Robey Lyle. 75 years president of the Pioneer Maiden Name Organization, the Lucy Stone League, founded in 1921 to establish the legal right of married women to use their own names. "We're getting letters from all over the country about it." The league was named after the woman who, in 1885, became the first woman in the United Stales known to retain her maiden name. Her friend, Olympia Brown, a minister after whom the Wisconsin group was named, is believed to be the second American woman to keep her birth name after she married. Council sets up fund Female escort service appealing for Alberta farmwoman OTTAWA ir'Di h TOKYO (AP) A foreign- run female escort service in this land known traditionally for its appealing, demure women, its geisha and its thousands of club hostesses? Yes, is the answer of a young woman who has started one. The aim said Mary Adele Rees, a tall blonde from Fa- yetteville, Tenn., is to provide bilingual escort girls for both Japanese and foreign businessmen. Part of her advertising pitch for Executive Service Ltd., says: "If you find that night after night of entertainment is beginning to wear you down, we can provide beautiful, charming and entertaining escorts of all nationalities." A lot of business in Japan is conducted in bars, nightclubs, restaurants and on golf courses. Miss Rees said she thinks that many businessmen are trying to find a "way out of boredom" and that a professional escort service can help them. More than 150 girls have ap- plied for jobs with the service. About 50 have been accepted, she said, including two Ger- mans and one American. The reason for turning down most of the others was because of their lack of foreign language fluency. Miss Rees said there is no age limit, but those who have been hired range from 18 to 35. They speak either English, Spanish. French or Italian and some still attend college. "I was surprised at their in- tellectual Miss Rees said. "It seems to me that many of them are interested in using languages as they meet foreigners, rather than in money alone." She said escorts should be "witty, attractive, charming and intelligent, for a client may want a quiet conversation or he may want an evening of dinner and dancing at a club." The rules prohibit going to private rooms, hotel or other- wise, but there is no time limit set for the escort service. OTTAWA (CP) -The advi- sory council on the status of women has decided to endorse a trust fund set up for Alberta farmwoman Irene Murdoch, who they say "has become a symbol of the inequalities of Canadian matrimonial property iaws." The fund has been set up by the Calgary Council of Women to help the Nanton, Alta., farmwoman repay debts from a recent defeat in the Supreme Court of Canada to win a half-interest in her husband's ranching business. Mrs. Murdoch owes about in legal fees and court costs as well in uninsured medical expenses. The council was "distressed by the Supreme Court deci- council chairman Katie Cooke told reporters the end of a two-day general meeting. Mrs. Murdoch was awarded in monthly separation payments. Her husband of 25 years kept the land, farm buildings, house, furniture car and all revenue from the farm and cattle. "Irene Murdoch has become a symbol of any discrimination against women." said council member Joan Wallace of Van- couver. "We want to give her some concrete help." F.O.E.
