Do the residents of Sleepy Eye, M i n n , t h i n k their town's name is colorful or offensive? Many geographical names on federal maps and in publications that were once considered humorous or picturesque are now considered offensive or derogatory. in response to this changing social climate, the Department of the Interior name experts are changing many geographical names. These names have evolved historically, their origins reflecting the languages and cultures of people who explored and settled the lands. Most of the names in the U. S. were not given as part of a systematic process, rather they came into being casually as the need to identify a feature arose, or as the feature itself suggested a name. Many place and feature names, now considered offensive were used as a form of pleasantry or humorous reference to other races or nationalities. The largest group of names considered' offensive are those which are considered to contain racial or ethnic slurs. Attitudes toward names change with the times. During the California and Alaska gold rush, a lusty breed of adventurers moved into the area. They named features as they saw them, .inspired by imagined resemblances to portions of the human anatomy. When permanent settlement followed, attempts were made to "clean up" some of the more "obscene" or offensive names. This trend con- t i n u e d as areas were mapped. The "cleaning-up" process sometimes involves replacement by less graphic names, although evidences of the original meanings often are found. A place in Arizona named for a woman's distinctive upper torso was changed to College Peak. A place in Oregon, defining a house of ill repute, now appears on the map as Naughty Girl Meadow. ' Another problem arises with geographical names with double meanings . . . whether they are offensive or not depends on how one thinks. Some names with possible double meanings include Willies Bottom, Ky.; Nakedtop, Va., and French Broad, N. C. The name experts emphasize that attempts to change or eliminate such names usually are opposed by residents of the areas where the names appear. Therefore, the name is acceptable for map use if it is in common local use and is not considered offensive by the local residents. The Deparment of the Interior says that the day may' come when the estimated 3.5 million geographical names will be completely standardizes with respect to form, spelling and applications. Meanwhile, Goose Pimple Junction, Bridal Veil and Old Womans Gut are still with us.

JAMES F.FIOYO. gers The third World's Invitational Class "A" Gold Panning Championships will be held June 2 in the small northeastern British Columbia village of Taylor. The championships feature prospectors from world gold rush centers, competing in a three-event test of gold panning supremacy-; speed-panning, skill- panning, and fine gold panning. Contestants in this year's gold panning championships will not just be competing for glory. The winner will take home an ounce of gold, in addition to a trophy. Although the Gold Panning Championships will be the feature event o.f the day, there will also be a Prospectors' Games program which will include several events open to the public! The Gold Panathon will give any interested persons a chance to try his hand at panning Peace River gold. Other events include a metal detector hunt, a claims staking contest, a children's treasure hunt, and a sourdough baking contest for the ladies. Last year's top winner and "King of the Sourdoughs" was Murray Hirota of Azusa, Calif, who swept first place in all categories, including the speed-panning event where he washed a pea-sized nugget put of a 16-inch pan of gravel in only 37.6 seconds.
