Nixon 'sexually insecure' says feminist Ms Steinem WASHINGTON (Renter) Women's Liberation leader Glo- ria Steinem entered a former all-male stronghold Monday and .classified President Nixon as the most sexually insecure chief of state since Napoleon. Ms insists on the Ms (pronounced miz) tag because she says categorizing women as Miss or Mrs. is de- had a few femin- ist barbs for the press and men in general. She spoke at the Na- tional Press Club, which opened its doors to women last year.

She said in order for such a program to start, there must clearly be a direct purpose for it; specifically, to have hospi tal bed space utilized fully when the situation K acute. Then, an extension of the VON services would be warranted. At OK present tune, the nun- Ing care of the order include! the city and a 15 mile radius outside the city. Baby visits are restricted to city limits In accordance with public health regulations. Financial support for the VON is received from donations of service organizations and pri- vate individuals, fees of the pa- tients, and through the collec- tions of the United Appeal. The proposed home care pro- gram would act as an extension of home nursing care services already provided. The program, if inaugurat- ed, would serve those who would otherwise be hospitaliz- ed. It would provide housekeep- ers, homemakers, meals on wheels, and other health ser- vices such as physiotherapy. Before such a program can begin, it must first be estab- lished whether the community has need of it, and if it would perform an essential service. The board is considering the possibility of such a service being set up in the city, but no decision has yet been made. an a out of town The Ladies' Auxiliary to Shrine Hospitals for Crippled Children recently held a lunch- eon meeting at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant with 32 members present for the elec- tion of officers.
