EDMONTON (CP) "We're part of a whole new look to i improve the train service Cheryl Priest, 21. one of four i hostesses who perform steward- ess-like duties on the Canadian Pacific Railway Edmonton-to- Calgary runs. The hostesses, in mod hot pants or glamorous pant-suits, i assist passengers, look after i them en route and provide meal service. Although they are not the first train hottesses in Montreal-Toronto Turbo train, which has been withdrawn from operation, tried are the only ones working now. The sendee started this fall, following a decision by the Ca- nadian Transport Commission that gave CP Rail sole opera- tion of passenger service be- I tween Edmonton and Calgary. Both CP Rail and Canadian Na- tional had applied to drop the service because it was losing money. The transport commission in- sisted that the passenger serv- ice must continue and that the service must be upgraded. OX-TRAIN AMENITIES "The commission suggested we experiment with fares, sched- ules, equipment and on-train amenities, especially food serv- i said Earl Olson, CP Rail LETHBRIDGE. 613 4th Ave. S, Telephone 328-4214 information officer in Calgary. The girl leaves her home city on the evening train and stays overnight in the other terminal city, returning home on the early morning train, said S'ue Parkinson, 20, also of Calgary. As each train ride is 3'4 j hours, the girls work only about four hours a day, with one extra I w e c k e n d run every second week. "But that's said Sue. "I sometimes feel as though Tve walked the entire distance between Calgary and Edmonton just going up and down the car." Mr. Olson said the girls didn't replace other staff. "When the railway transport committee instructed CP Rail to discontinue a 11 intermediate stops, except Red Deer, the i need for train-baggagemen ceased. This displacement was' not a reult of the introduction of i hostesses." TRAIN STAFF HELP j The regular train staff, said Sue, treats the hostesses "mag- nificently." "They're just like mother she said of the conduc- tors. "They look after us and even walk us to our hotels at night." Many of the passengers who use the train are elderly per- sons and women with children, Cheryl said. Food service is the main time-consuming chore for the hostesses. They serve a conti- nental breakfast of Danish pastry and coffee for 50 cents on the morning run and sand- wiches and coffee for 75 cents in the evenings. The four two Edmonton-based girls are Kath- leen Mercopoulis and Cheryl Clark ere selected from nearly 100 applicants after the jobs were advertised, Mr. Olson said. TRAINED THREE DAYS They spent three days in Van- couver at the CP Air stewardess school. The uniform is a red, knit hot pants and tunic outfit with a white wash-and-wear blouse. A pair of navy slacks also can be worn with the tunic. Cheryl Priest said she spends a lot of time on her runs talking to people. "We just try to make them feel at home, to feel welcome." The hostesses also help with children, sometimes reading to them or helping them with col- oring books. It gives the mother a said Cheryl. Cloistered nuns escapists' ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) No daily newspapers come to the big mansion in the Druid Hills section of Atlanta, a place of or- nate houses, old woods fnd once the scene of some of the city's largest social affairs. Television and radJo sets are not present. I But the 10 cloistered nuns who I pursue a contemplative life in what now is the Monastery of Visitation say they are not "es- capists" and keep informed of secular problems such as drug abuse, racial tension and war. "We are not said Mother Superior Eulalia. "This life is not just a secluded quiet life for ourselves but a life [or the world. We are here for the salvation of the world. We are here to help people by our pray- ers." The Roman Catholic arch- bishop of Atlanta Most Rev. Thomas A. Donnellan, and the sisters of the monastery allowed the Atlanta Journal a rare glimpse of life within the mon- j astery's walls recently. There is no idleness in the rambling house, kept spotless by the sisters who range in age from 22 to past 70. All have spe- cial tasks which help support their existence. Some make elaborate vest- ments, embroider altar clothes or sew fancy monograms. Oth- ers hand-letter diplomas. One of the most important project is the baking of altar bread which is sent to 50 churches in Geor- gia. Although they shun the short habit for nuns, evidencing little desire to follow new trends within the Church, Mother Supe- rior Eulalia says, "Don't leave people with the impression that we go around with long faces or spend all our time on our knees." All of the sisters have free time in which they may read or pursue hobbies and one of the favorite pastimes is working on the grounds. During the afternoon recrea- tion period some of the sisters don black and white checkered aprons over their habits and, taking their work gloves, a wheelbarrow and garden tools, do their gardening amid laugh- ter and chatter. But little conversation takes place inside the sparsely fur- nished monastery. Silence is ob- served during meals. "We are not forced to remain in the cloistered said Sister Mary Immaculate, a vi- vacious, 41-year-old nun who composes both secular and sa- cred music in her spare time. "True, the doors are locked, she said, "but from the inside."

Bishop wanis women ordained VATICAN CITY (Rculcr) The Roman Catholic archbishop of Winnipeg, George Cardinal Flahiff said that historical ar- guments against women as priests can no longer be consi- dered valid. The Canadian cardinal urged Pope Paul to establish a special commission to study whether women should be allowed to be ordained. lie said that as far as he knows there is no dogmatic objection to reconsidering I he whole question. "Despite a centuries-old so- cial tradition against a ministry of women in the church, we are convinced that the signs of the times strongly urgo a study at least both of the present situa- tion and of the possibilities for the future. "Unless such a study is begun at once, we may find ourselves behind tho course of events."
