Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 17, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, January 17, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 DARLENE HUDSON DIANE KING The only 'bird' left is Pharley EDNA BRODER Games birds now hostesses "Are you a garhe she replies, "I'm a Games hostess." Following an informal request from 40 women serving as hostesses for Canada Winter Games, the Games society has stopped using the name "birds." Head hostess Edna Broder of Lethbridge says hostesses discussed their unfortunate moniker and its connotations at a casual gathering, last year. "We took a poll among the girls. They prefer the name hostess." The name says Mrs. Broder, is "not uncomplimentary but it doesn't in- dicate what their role is." The name she adds, "indicates more what they're doing." Games hostess Sharon Pierzchala says the name "did not offend rne that much. I could take it or leave it." "I wasn't really impressed with the name, THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "I have a related moonlighting job. I work ternoons making hors d'oeuvres for the Bavarian Catering Company."

Spectators are welcome to observe, the two hour to be held in the YM gymnasium. "We're emphasizing the fun aspect rather than the com- petitive aspect of the says Mr. O'Brien, "but the winning team will receive a He says the YM hopes the race will become an annual event, to draw attention to ex- ercise as a means of preventing heart disease. Par- ticipants "travelling" the farthest on the stationary bicycles within the two hour period will be the winners; all the bikes will be set at the same tension. Mr. O'Brien says a team pedalling a dis- tance of 40-50 miles in the two hour period might be a winner. Participating teams include groups of home economists, doctors, lawyers, chartered accountants, as well as Kiwanis and Y's Mens representatives and a team from the Centre for Personal and Community Development. Doctors, nurses need sex education GENEVA (Reuter) The World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that all doctors and nurses be trained in the understanding of human sexuality. A WHO report published here said doctors often feel personally embarrassed or professionally uncertain when faced with sex problems and turn their patients away with a superficial reply. "The public is beginning to suspect that health profes- sionals in general have neither the skill, the time, nor the inclination to deal with sexual it said. The report recommended training for all doctors and nurses should coyer sexual de- velopment and functioning, premarital and marital behavior, sex ethics, sexual deviations, cultural attitudes, group sex, inhibitions and venereal disease. The report, drawn up after a meeting in Geneva of experts from nine countries, said that until now the health professions have generally provided no sex education in medical and nursing schools. but I didn't feel other hostesses, she adds, did feel demeaned and "cheapened" by the name "bird." Fellow hostess Darlene Hudson says while "there wasn't a real protest" by hostesses, there was a "general feeling" against "bird." "It doesn't matter to me what I'm called, as long as it isn't dirty." She says the name was borrowed from the summer Games at Burnaby, B.C. in 1973. Hostess Dianne King also says the name "never upset me one way or the other." But, she adds, "I think it upset the public." Some people considered "bird" to be suggestive, but "certain people will always take things the wrong way." Winter Games publicity man Al Simpson confirms that hostesses are no longer called birds, but doesn't say when or how the name change occurred.
