Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Tuesday, April Jewett excited about role as SFU president By DENNIS BUECKERT Canadian Press Correspondent OTTAWA (CP) Pauline Jewett is excited about her new job as president of Simon Fraser University at Burn- aoy, B.C. "I don't see it as just a dreary round, but as a fun thing, kind of interesting and said the Carleton University political scientist, who has been teaching here for 19 years. Dr jeweti does not look like the hard-nosed adminis- trator one would expect to find in the job of running a university. She has a warm manner. The creak of her rocking chair and the chiming of an old-fashioned clock on the wall bring back the atmosphere of a country parlor rather than an executive suite. Dr. Jewett seems surprised herself at the latest turn her career has taken. The only explanation she can give in an interview was, "I've always been interested in public always." Needs excitement She said: "I need a certain amount of excitement in my challenges. I'm great on challenges. That's why I think it would be great to run a university. But the only kind that appeals to me is one that's fairly new, and has lots of problems. "I really wouldn't want to work at a university that was all stable and settled in its ways." She will take office Sept 1 for five years with a year's leave of absence at full pay after that. Dr. Jewett has spent a good number of her 51 years teaching at university. She refers to her students as "my Known for her controversial views, she was a Liberal member of Parliament for Northumberland in 1963-65 and ran unsuccessfully for the New Democratic Party in Ottawa in 1972 "I found one of the most exciting times at university in the late 1960s, when the young people were really radi- they tended to keep me radicalized." She is also known for her academic accomplishments, having studied at Harvard, Oxford and London School of Economics. Seeks free inquiry One of her aims as president at Simon Fraser will be to e'ncourage what she calls "the spirit of free inquiry, which we must have if we are going to open new horizons and break into new frontiers of learning." To help accomplish this, she said, "I want to bring the community more into the university, and the university- more into the community, in various ways "I myself, I'll just be around a lot. you know, I'll be very accessible "I'll be talking a be, I hope, reasonably alive myself, so insofar as an example is set, that's the kind of example it will be." Dr. Jewett said she plans to "go public" more than has traditionally been the case with university presidents. "That means I'll be in hot water periodically and so will the university I'll debate a good many issues with gov- ernment and I'll do so openly. I believe in openness, so people know what's going on Many interviews Within 12 days of Dr Jewell's appointment, she had granted more than 25 interviews to the press. She was also flooded with letters of congratulation She does not altempt to define her "Half of my own optimism, I'm sure, rises out of my own temperament. But I am also sure it rises out of knowing lhat life is really tough and yet you can deal with it and get things out of it that are valuable and good, not just for you but for society." As for Simon Fraser. "It's not going to be easy, but the university has a terrific future, and I am glad to be able to help shape that future." THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Hi there know any more funny jokes this morn- Suicide rate high among U.S. women physicians CHICAGO (AP) The suicide rate among United States women physicians is Ijiree times that of women in vine general population, a study by two Philadelphia medical researchers discloses. Among male physicians, the rate was 1.15 times higher than for men in general. The study was conducted by Dr. Robert Steppacher, assistant professor of psychiatry, and Dr. Judith Mausner, associate professor of community and preventive medicine, at the Medical College of Pennsylvania. It is published in the April 15 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Steppacher and Mausner studied obituaries of physicians published in the journal between March, 1966, and August, 1970. Most of Ihese obituaries list cause of death, including suicide. When the cause was not indicated, they checked death certificates and other sources. The 530 deaths attributed to suicide included 489 men and 41 women. The researchers said that based on suicide rates in the general population, the number would have been expected to be 426.4 for male physicians and 12.8 for female physicians. They said they found that suicides among the women physicians occurred at younger ages, with almost 40- per-cent under age 40. The rates were highest in middle-aged physicians 45 to 64 whereas elderly white men in the general population have the highest rates. Twenty of "a very high proportion" had never been married.
