HAYS DAILY NEWS PAGK 5 December 21, 1976 Daily Calls Provided By Auxiliary It was early and light was just starting to filter through the curtains. Mrs. B. was making her way from the bedroom to the kitchen when her foot caught in the folds of a small, rumpled rug, unnoticed in the dark hallway. She tumbled to the floor and pain shot through her right side. She was unable to move. She knew she needed medical attention, but who could help? She lived alone. There was no way to reach a phone or even crawl to the door. At 9 a.m. a woman garbed in a pink smock was making her daily calls for Tele-Care, a program sponsored by the Hadley Regional Medical 'Center Auxiliary. 'She was able to reach the first two Printed Pattern persons on her list. They were fine. But the third didn't answer, She kept trying, but still no answer from Mrs. B. She decided it was time to act. She notified a neighbor and asked her to check the home. Mrs. B. was found lying in the spot where she had fallen hours earlier, An ambulance was called and within minutes she was on her way to the hospital. Such incidents are infrequent. But Mrs. B's story reveals the importance of a daily phone call to those who live alone, to the shut-ins, the sick, the elderly. "We want to check on people, to see that they're alright," Mrs. Keith Watson, Tele-Care chairman,, said. "We want to wish them a good day, to give them some contact with someone outside their homes." Though the program has been in operation three years, Mrs. Betty Baird, Director of Volunteer Services at Hadley, believes many more persons in Hays could be served by Tele-Care. "We are making an appeal to the community to help us locate persons who would benefit from the daily phone call, which we believe provides a vital link between the client and someone who cares," she said. The Auxiliary . may not directly solicit clients, Mrs. Baird said. Potential clients must be referred by a third party. Through Tele-Care, .auxilians hope to avoid the tragedy often suffered when the victim may lay for days in the same spot, unable to move t and unable to reach help or even food and water. They believe the daily phone call can help eliminate this. Tele-Care can ease the minds of children who have elderly parents, "if you know someone is calling them every day," Mrs. Watson said. "You have a little more secure feeling that everything is alright." Tele-Care, limited to Hays residents, works like this: Every morning, including weekends and holidays, each client is called by an auxilian on special Tele-Care phones provided by Hadley. If requested, the auxjlian will call the client's doctor or an ambulance to transport the client to the hospital of his or her choice. If there is no answer after a period of time, the auxilian will contact the alternate, usually a neighbor or relative, as designated by the client. The alternate is asked to check the residence for possible problems. If the alternate cannot be reached, the police are notified and asked to investigate, Mrs. Watson explained. On several occasions, Women Want More Than Extra Dollars From Jobs TULSA, Okla. (UPI) — Men who say women want to work just to earn a few extra dollars are wrong, according to a professor of business. Dr. Donald Bowen said women are looking for the same thing men are seeking in a job — "mastery achievement."' That is a term Bowen uses to describe the desire to "accomplish things; doing a job well and completely." Personalities Irf-'.-f I''.". '. • " ' .

Mr. and Mrs. Roger Rife, Mr. and Mrs. Neal Stephens, the Rev. and Mrs. Earl Wall, and Mrs. Lloyd Gemaehlich. GemaehUch was unable to attend, because he was on driving duty. Bowen, an associate professor in the University of Tulsa's College of Business Administration, said men think women want to work for economic reasons. "It turns out that when the men try to guess what other people want from their jobs, they're not very accurate," he said. "And, the women aren't very accurate for the men, either. But, both sexes tend to rank things in about the same order. And, clearly, they want the same kind of thihg that Helen Bickel Wolfe (who did an original survey on female work values) found. They want mastery-achievement in their work. "A number of studies have indicated that contemporary American women are interested in meaningful careers • in work. Moreover, women sometimes place greater value on achievement, challenge, mastery and related satisfactions than men do." Bowen said he surveys his students every year on the general reasons they see for men and women working and the survey sometimes results in the women getting mad at the men for stereotyping them. He recalled one survey where a male student said he did not believe women worked to get involved in interesting activity because so many women had "dull, routine jobs." He said one female student was furious at the comment. "Listen, you dummy," he quoted her as saying. "The . reason they've got those dull jobs is because that's the only thing they can get. That isn't what they want. Do you realize that?" "An awful lot of women's jobs are dead-end jobs," Bowen said. clients have been found too sick or too injured to answer the phone or go for help, she said. Clients may sign up for an indefinite period of time or on a temporary basis, Mrs. Watson said. Information on clients is kept strictly confidential. "We want to give a Christmas present to the community — something that will keep on giving every day of the year," Mrs. Baird said. More information: Mrs. Baird 628-8251, Ext. 124.
