Nt«t S»~l Int DEAR ABBY: What protection does a hospital patient have from nosy hospital personnel who divulge a patient's confidential information to their friends? I live next door to a gossip monger whose sister-in-law has access to medical records at a local hospital. Recently I was a surgical patient there, and I purposely did not disclose the nature of my surgery to anyone excepting my immediate family. This neighbor admitted learning the specific details of my case from her sister-in-law, whom I've never even met. When 1 told this neighbor that 1 resented the invasion of privacy, and that medical case histories were supposed to be confidential, she ridiculed me for being so "secretive." How does a person deal with such an obvious invasion of privacy? Or has this become so commonplace that it is now legal and socially acceptable? INFURIATED DEAR INFURIATED! I hope that publication of this letter will cause hospital administrator! to impress upon their employees and volunteers that ill patients have i right to privacy, and violation of confidentialities should be grounds for immediate dismissal! DEAR ABBY : Out of the blue, for no reason whatsoever, my husband decided to destroy all of our credit cards! He could just as easily have put them away to be used only in case of emergency, such as unexpected expenses. I work just as my husband does, and I pay my share of the bills, so I think I should have had a say in this matter. But he just made up his mind and destroyed all our credit cards. What should I do? UPSET IN TEXAS DEAR UPSET: Since you are employed, you can have credit cards Issued In your nune! The Equal Opportunity Act (passed in October 19751 gives you that right. DEAR ABBY: How can I get my 15-year-old son to respect me? His daddy has taught him to cut me down. (My son has been taught by my husband that Daddy never makes a mistake or never does anything wrong. But he sits on his bucket and never lifts a finger to help me with the housework even though I am crippled with rheumatoid My doctor refuses to get involved in family affairs. When I asked him to please say a few words to my husband for my health's sake, he said, "I am a physician, not a referee." Our preacher is very young and says that he's had no training in marriage counseling so he can't help me Besides, he won't even talk to people who do not tithe, and my husband is one of them. Don't send us on a goose chasr. for counseling. This bull-headed husband of mine refuses to talk to anybody about his personal affairs. All he wants to do is yell at me. Please help me because my son is getting to be just like his daddy. Divorce is out. He's got The American Association of Universily Women (AAUW), among the early "clubs" of Greeley, was organized in 1924, 52 years ago. Prior to Miss Josephine Jones who served 1934-35, pictured with 10 others in an adjoining photo, there were seven presidents beginning with Miss Caroline Tobey in 1924. The others in the early years of AAUW (not pictured) were Mrs. Dora L. Keys, Miss Genevieve Lyford, Mrs. W. S. Garnsey Jr., Mrs. Earl Hamilton, Mrs. Charles E. Southard and Mrs. John R. Bell. Not pictured bul serving since Miss Jones were Mrs. George A. Barker, Mrs. Grant · Bab- cock.Dr.OraB.Peake.Mrs.H. D. Eldridge, Mrs. George E. Rillis, Mrs. Carl D. McXinley, Mrs. Glen C. Turner, Mrs. 'Charles Lott Jr., Mrs. William R. Ross, Mrs. E. J. Haefeli, Mrs. Floyd Carney and Mrs. Lacy L. Wilkinson. The Greeley Branch held its first meeting on Nov. 10, 1924. Dr. Evelyn Nowman, professor of English at Colorado State Teachers College, organized Ihe meeting; Miss Tobey was elected firs! president. This was two years prior to the Colorado Division which began in 1926, although AAUW was founded in 1882, and the International Federation of University Women, in 1918. Membership in AAUW enables women to continue their intellectual growth, to further the advancement of women and to discharge their special responsibilities to society. Tile iiwUu "Auliun fui a unified society" has been retained through the years. Today there are 170 members, under the leadership of Mrs. Eugene Koplitz, currenl president. During the depression years it was difficult for the group, but Mrs. Agnes Wood Garnsey serving from 1928-31, helped the branch service. She also served as the director of the Rocky Mountain Section from 1933-41. The accomplishments of the Greeley AAUW are many. They include leading the drive to establish the Weld County Library in 1931; getting Colorado State Teachers College (now the University of Northern Colorado) as an accredited institution for AAUW membership in 1933; establishing a Works Projects Administration (WPA) nursery in Greeley and helping Weld County Library purchase its first bookmobile in 1940; contributing money to establish a building fund for Ihe Community Building in 1947; helping organize the Weld County Mental Health Association. Also, various entertainment groups were brought in from New York. The largest membership was In 1947-49, when more than 300 women belonged. At this lime the Greeley Branch was Imnnrpd hy n visit by the national president, Dr. Althea Hottell, then on the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania. Currently the Greeley Branch sustains a small loan fund at UNC and Aims College to assist women students with financial problems. The group also gives two scholarships yearly, one to an outstanding woman student at UNC and one to an outstanding art student. The funds for these scholarships are raised through the AAUW Art Show each May. The group also donates to the Association Fellowship Fund -a multimillion dollar agency which grants money (o outstanding women doctoral studenls all over (he United States. The Greeley Branch currently sponsors 12 study groups which are open to non- degree persons as well as members. U I I W UUlWiJ Mb During World War 1 the women of Greeley were very active, but after theie activities ended, there seemed to be a need for an organization open to women of the community. In the sprine of 1919, a committee of the Progress Club and the WTK Club worked out the nucleus tor tne ureeiey Woman's Club. It was organized in February, 1920. Colorado state chartered the same year on March 13, with 437 members. The club Joined the General Federation of Women's Clubs on May 1, ittl. That same year the Progress Club members disbanded and presented their gavel to the Greeley Woman's Club (CF- WC). This gavel is still used by the club at meetings today. The purpose and objectives of the club when il was organized was to broaden intellectually its members as home builders and cititens and to work for the betterment of the community and national and world condition. Mrs. Lynn McMullen was the first president. She was followed by Mrs. G. W.Finley, and Mrs. Henrietta bille, Mrs. G. F. Smilli and Mrs. A. F. Carter, successively. One name appearing in the club yearbooks since 1920 is that of Mrs. E. 1. Varvel who was a charter member and is still in the club. At iU inception the club constitution committee consisted of Mrs.G.A. Finley. Mrs. W. S. Garnsey Jr. and Mrs. Charles Henry. In I960 Ihe club granled life membership to Mrs. Ira Howerth who was 94 and had joined in 1922. In 1966 the General Federation Women's Clubs celebrated the diamond jubilee and Mrs. H. E. Green of Greeley was selected to be a "Diamond Jubilee." At the same time the club celebrated its 46th year with Mrs. Mark R. Stewart, Mrs. W. E. Freeman, Miss Gertrude Lee, Miss Luna Smith and Miss Eula Smith especially honored as charter members. Throughout the years the club has continued to support welfare and community projects. A book is given each year to the Weld County or city library. Annually Ihe club cosponsors with AAUW - the American Association of University Women, eight book reviews to which the public is invited. The Women's Club Chorus, active since 1922, was under the direction of Mrs. Norval Hinds for 30 years.
