Garden hostesses enjoy summer job By JUBE TURIC Herald Staff Writer While other hostesses tradi- tionally greet guests with a hello, these young girls ask those at the doorstep to please remove then- shoes. They work in a garden of meditation, of simple beauty and often deep silence, repeat- ing to holidayers the story and meaning of the place they have chosen to visit. Chizuko Endo meets all at the gateway, explaining softly that Nikka Yuko means Japan- Canada friendship and that the complex contains three main sections the flat garden, the garden proper and the cultural pavilion. Visitors are directed to the teahouse where teenage girls in colorful and relaxing Japan- ese garb relate its history and structure. They explain the use of a cul- tural centre, how the floors are of especially soft wcod, that the building is patterned after 16th century architecture and has" no nails, and was construct- ed in Japan, dismantled and reassembled in its present spot. Following a brief tour of the dry garden, tiiey return again to the doorway and wait for another grouping of tourists in- terested in their heritage. Meet many people All hostesses at the Leth- bridge centennial project are of Japanese descent, students and usually from the surround- ing district. "It's a very interesting commuted Elaine Tanaka "be- cause we do meet so many dif- ferent people. They come from all over the world, and I par- ticularily enjoy that. "This is my second season at the gardens, and I've met people from Holland, London, Poland, Buenos Aires and Ha- waii." Wendy Saruwatai, a Grade 11 student from Raymond, added that often there are visitors who have lived in Japan and know much more about the gar- den than the girls them- selves. "But, we learn from she said, "and we find out a lot more about the meaning of the garden, the way others are set up and we learn about Japan as well. "Sometimes, when a person who knows more than we do is being shown through, it's difficult to remember what to say and we worry about our pronunciation of Japanese words." The girls, who alternate working shifts in the teahouse and at the gate, are among a staff of 12 hired for the sea- son which runs from May through to Thanksgiving in Oc- tober. Kimonos not worn As hostesses, they are expect- ed to wear traditional cos- tumes, but contrary to popular belief, these outfits are not Japanese kimonos. "We all wear summer explained Wendy, "which are of light material and have an obe (bow-lite sash) around the waist. "The kimono is of very heavy silk material, dressier and much more elaborate. It's worn for special occasions and has more ribbons and sashes. They would really be very warm and uncomfortable to use here." Debbie NisWguchi wore the only ukata which was brought from Japan, while the other girls bad had theirs made at home. All the girls agreed that the job held more advantages than disadvantages, saying the sur- roundings were pleasant .pretty and the people they met very nice. The one drawback be- ing that near the close of the season, it became slightly tedi- ous because of story repetition. Attendance at par Peggy Donaldson, supervisor of the gardens, said there had been visitors pass through the gates on a single day over the long weekend, and general attendance was about par with last year. She added that tins Sunday would draw more people as the Japanese Dancers would pres- ent their annual Obon service in connection with the Hompa Budhist Church celebrations. The dancing will take place at 7 p.m. at the gardens and will include members of the Japanese community from the city and district. Communication problems alleviated by interpreter TORONTO (CP) The fact that a child is sick enough to be admitted to a hospital is suffi- cient to upset any parent Ina- bility to understand medical jar- gon makes the problem seem much more serious than it ac- tually is. The situation is fur- ther complicated when those in- volved speak a foreign lan- guage. In an effort to alleviate such problems, Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children has appointed Miss Anne McGouran as coor- dinator of interpreter service. A graduate of the University of Toronto, she has done commun- ity service work as an inter- preter and counsellor. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "It my be a period piece, but that price is more of an txclamation Miss McGouran. who is fluent in French, Spanish and Italian, now is studying Portuguese. She also makes use of the abilities of other multilingual hospital staffers and volunteers. The services of these people are much in demand. For example, the out-patient department, which offers 10 languages, as- sisted in 265 cases in 1972. However, Miss McGouran hopes to recruit a larger volun- teer corps to ease the strain on hospital staffers. Then she wfll attempt to co-ordinate the ef- forts of staffers and volunteers with the external f a c i 1 i t i e s available through libraries and ethnic organizations to produce an efficient, 24-hour interpreter service. As well, she hopes to prepare a multilingual primer on medi- cal terms which she feels would be an invaluable communica- tions aid. In the meantime. Miss Mc- Gouran has helped with transla- tion of diets and interpreting on wards and in admittance. "It is so gratifying to see the anxiety leave their faces the moment someone speaks to them in own she said.
