Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 12, THE LETHMIDOE HIBALD-M The LetHbridge Herald Fourth section Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, October 12, 1974 Pages 35-44 Van Luven 'People want to know about sexuality9 Image of BCIC improving Talking turkey Let's talk said my friend Mazie when she stopped by my house for coffee. "That's a fowl said I, passing the saccharine. Mazie glowered: "This is no time to be flippant.

Joy of Cooking indeed! And this year, Ralph was so pleased with bought us a 27 and one quarter pound bird." "Frankly, although I know this is heresy, I have never real- ly been very fond of I whispered, glancing nervously over my shoulder. "I can't see bewailed Mazie, wearily thumbing for a dog-eared cookbook for the seventh time, "we can't be just as festive and just as thankful eating meatballs or a nice casserole or a small roast of beef. "Come to think of she added, "I think it would be more meaningful if we donated our turkey or the money we'd spend on it to a worthy cause and settled for a cup of consomee. That might make Canadians more genuinely thankful for our society's bounty, less willing to horde our good fortune and more eager to share with the rest of the world." By LYNNE Vas LUVEN Herald Family Editor Sex education cannot exist in a vacuum, says the recently appointed director of the Lethbridge Birth Control and Information Centre. It must be part of one's whole attitude towards life. Pauline Hoskin says she looks forward to the day when the birth control centre will be an integral, rather than an exceptional, part of the community. "Our image has she says, "and people are beginning to unders- tand what sort of information we offer and the importance of such knowledge." Responsible to an 11-member board, Ms. Hoskin is charged with direction of the centre's policies and development of new programs to increase public awareness of human sexuality. A former public health nurse, she says the move into family planning and sex education was a natural one for her. Ms. Hoskin graduated from the progressive Nightingale School of Nur- sing's two-year registered nursing program in 1964. After obstetrical work at Toronto's New Mount Sinai Hospital she went to the University of Toronto where she received her diploma in public health. After practicing in small town and rural Ontario communities for several years, she worked in public health in an inner city area of Toronto for four years. During that period she worked part time in a family planning clinic from which her subsequent commit- ment to family life and sex education developed to the stage where today, as the mother of a two year old son, she views zero population growth as the ideal solution to an over crowded globe. "Ideal, but she adds. Then, following a year in England where her clergyman husband (he is minister at St. Augustine's Anglican Church) was studying, the move to Lethbridge in 1973. "People want to know about their sexuality. I think the public's attitude has changed tremendously. People are becoming more enlightened, more positive towards birth control and sex says Ms. Hoskins. "Men are taking responsibility for contracep- tion and unwanted pregnancies, now. They're changing their views on women's sexual role I have great faith in people's ability to change their at- titudes." Ms. Hoskins says she has noticed a slight change in the clientelle using the BCIC. Though most clients are aged from their early teens to 25, "There seems to be more acceptance for the centre among older women. Some are seeking facts about sterilization and, in many cases, are here for information so they will be better equipped to dis- cuss sex and contraception with their children, And that's just excellent. I wish more parents would get involved this way." PEOPLE AWARE She says people are becoming more conscious of the value of human life and increasing numbers of parents hold the view "every child a wanted "Our whole says the BCIC is the general area of human sexuality. We want people to unders- tand the whole process of sexual development, including puberty, sexual relationships, motherhood and contraception. You cannot really dis- cuss one without understanding of the other related topics. COMMUNICATION Aside from answering individual concerns, the centre views communica- tion with the community as a top priority. Ms. Hoskins feels this is being achieved through the centre's monthly newsletter (begun in September with the second issue being published at the end of this referral services from community agencies and BCIC use of various specialized resources within the city. "Our pre natal courses for single mothers, our sexuality workshops (the next is to be held Oct. 19) and our connection with the Ministerial Association and the Contemporary Woman program are all vital to our growth." -The Herald- Family Ladies'Auxiliary To The Royal Canadian Legion POT LUCK SUPPER Tuesday, Oct. 15th in the Memorial Hall To commemorate our 30th Anniversary Supper p.m. Meeting.................. p.m. Entertainment to follow ALL MEMBERS WELCOME Dispute flares over callousness of women doctors ByRAMSUNDAR CP Correspondent BOMBAY (CP) There- are more women doctors in India today than at any time since independence from British rule 27 years ago.

But not all Indians seem to .agree that women make better doctors than men. In fact, a furious controversy has been sparked in the south In- dian metropolis of Bangalore over the alleged callousness of women members of the staff of a big government hospital. 6.S. Ullal, an independent member of the Karnataka state legislative council, told the house that a woman doctor fleeced the last rupee (about 13 cents) from a destitute woman who had been ad- mitted to the hospital's mater- nity wing. "The doctor demanded all the woman's savings when she was brought to the delivery room. She was even deprived of her last rupee which she had kept for the bus journey back to the slum where she was Ullal said. The legislator said the poor woman ran away from the hospital with her newborn baby fearing danger to their lives. Opposition politicians in Karnataka have alleged that government doctors, including women, treat patients from poor families, especially those admitted in free wards, "shabbily." Health Minister Sidda Vee- rappa has promised a high- level probe into the hospital incident "Such incidents are not un- usual in government he admitted? ad- ding: "This is a matter of shame and regret" Bat women doctors in Karnataka have protested what they call "the smear campaign against us." Dr. Kamala Rao. a former government medical officer and now a private doctor, says "women are still the best qualified for this noble profession." Dr. Rao, a woman, says In- dian women doctors are much in demand in Brittan, Canada and the United States because of their proficiency and sympathetic approach to patients. Meanwhile, the Karnataka government bas ordered an in- vestigation to find out whether poor people are getting proper service in state hospitals. As in most other Indian- states, a percentage of beds in all state hospitals is reserved for poor people who are treated free of charge. Alberta commercial insulting to women EDMONTON (CP) Provincial NDP Leader Grant Notiey has called for withdrawal of a travel Alberta television commerical, saying it depicts women as "sexual bait to attract tourists" and is "an insult to every women in the province." "At one point in the ad, a girl who is being embraced by her male companion says: 'no matter what kind of action he's got in mind, got Mr. Notiey said. He said the "highly objectionable" commercial is consistent with the Lougheed administration's treat- ment of women in other areas. "It is hardly a coincidence that Alberta pays its female public employees a starting salary that is over a year less than average starting salary for male employees." ____________ PAULINE HOSKIN STEVE KOTCH for CITY COUNCIL BONNIE BELLE COIFFURES are pleased to introduce Linda enjoys doing perms and various hair styles.
