Transcript Pats and Pans His Royal Highness has a low opinion of feminists. Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, says they are "idiotic." In an interview with Good Housekeeping, the Prince wailed, "Those idiotic women who go around telling all the other women to think the way they do— -basically, I think, because they want to be men—are, to my mind, totally wrong." PANfry the Prince. In Texas we'd make a "Hamburger" out of you. Anchors away! Come September, Barbara Walter'scashwill be flowing from ABC where she will co—anchor the evening news with Harry Reasoner. PAT Walters her $1 million-a year contract makes her the highest paid person in television and gives her a vertical hold on the network. Hand the dustPAN to the director of social services of the Belgian Health Department who blames the women's movement for the increase in the vermin's movement in Belgian homes. He claims that since more women are working outside the home, housework is being neglected. Let's exterminate this unhealthy attitude. The sexist "humor" of KULF's morning radio DJ Dan Lucas is extremely PANful. Take his story about an auto race in Mexico. The one female contestant, Kitty Plenty, was doing all right until a male competitor "shoved a potato up her tailpipe" thus exploding her green bus. Kitty, however, was a good sport and "received" one of the men from the race as a consolation prize. PAN Dan for also including Kay, the traffic reporter, in his degrading treatment of women, explaining how Kay had changed her name to "Watergate"because "she had always wanted to be uncovered by Robert Redford."PAT to Karen Coffey for writing her objection of Lucas to KULF and its advertisers. (Don't forget the FCC,Karen!) PAT KPFT Pacifica Radio for broadcasting seven hours of live hearings on the Karen Silkwood case (see page 1). The hearings originated in the House Small Business Subcommittee on Energy and Environment meeting rooms and was carried by National Public Radio. A Ku Klux PAN to the Louisiana Klan for window dressing its bigotry with a woman manniquin wearing an ultra—feminine gown and hooded veil. Women of Baton Rouge, get on the stick! Decry a bridal image of a bridled image in the Klan headquarters. Short—sheet those rallies and erase this trace of race disgrace. An appeals court inMulhouse , France ruled that "hitchhiking was a mitigating circumstance" in reducing the sentence of a convicted rapist from 4 to 2 years. The man raped the hitchhiker after stopping his car in a wooded area and claiming engine trouble. The workings of this French appeals court are seriously "en PANne." PAT the Prof. Dr. J. Leslie McCary, UH professor and clinical psychologist, claims that marriages have been made more healthy by the current feminist movement. In a Daily Cougar interview McCary said, "Marriage once represented a master—serf relationship, but attitudes about marital relationships are different today." He characterized his early years in counseling as a period when he had a "Daniel Boone" complex. "I thought women needed protection. Those days are gone. There's more equality now." McCary said women can give more to a relationship as they develop a fuller life. Any man in his right mind would want hisi wife to be as fulfilled as possible." Lynn Ashby had better stay out of 2 Country for a while. In "Truth on Tube" (April 6) the Post satirist really did a number on Big 2's 10 o'clock news program. In fact, he left no Stone unturned. He had a White House reporter "freezing (his) network off trying to look like (he knows) what's going onjinside..." and admitting that when he quotes "authoratative sources" he's referring to the guys he drinks with at the local bar. Back "on the (local) scene"he scripted the running dialogue between anchor-Stone and weather-or-not- reporter-Johnson that always seems to begin with "Hey, that's a nifty tie you have on, Doug," and which always seems to be followed by. "heeheeheeheeheeheehee." Ash- by got "ole' blue eyes," the sportscaster, to finally admit that "nothing much happened in sports today...but I've got five minutes to pad before the next commercial... so here are some scores—5-2, 3-1, 9-5, 8-4." And, he even got in the final "final funny note" with Stone saying, "we always try to end with some comment whereby we can all laugh when the show closes." While we Post a PAT to Ashby at his best, we remind other stations not to be too quick to cast the first stone... And, what about that PANoramic view of cleavage on Texas Monthly's cover illustration (May 1976)? Can you imagine them illustrating an exaggerated crotch shot- just for fun? We think someone there has a BIG breast fixation! A. U.S. district judge has ruled that the federal sex discrimination laws protecting workers do apply in a case in which a woman claimed retaliation being fired for having refused the sexual advances of her employer. Apparently this is the first such decision; other judges have ruled that such cases are not covered by the 1964 Civil Rights Act. PAT Judge Charles R. Richey. Shell Oil gets the PATroleum award this month for an excellent article, "Whatever Happened to the Tomato," which appeared in its in-house publication Shell News recently. It examines Shell's equal employment opportunity policy through interviews with 12 of Shell's career businesswoomen who speak frankly and openly about their struggles and accomplishments. It is not just a PR piece on the company and we PAT Gaynell Adams, the first woman associate editor of Shell News, public relations staff writer De'bbie Berdelle for researching the article and Thomas Winfield, editor of Shell News, for writing it. PAN the Royal Coach Inn for their 1520 A.D. Theatre Restaurant's ad invitation to "come out and pelt the villians and pinch the wenches" (i.e. waitresses) .Off with their heads if that's where they're at! And PAN the local papers for carrying this ad month-after-month Newsflash to Channel 13's Frank Agraz and David Glodt. A reporter is a reporter is a reporter. In stories on a recent Presidential press conference and breaking news, they have shown a PANchant for referring to reporters as "newsmen." What's wrong with "reporter"? PAT Sharon Davis whose MA research is focusing on the relationship between attitudes towards feminism and career aspirations. PAN John Holland and the Consulting Psychological Press of Palo Alto, California. Vocational Preference Inventory, the standardized test available for Sharon's research into woman and feminism maintains the use of such job descriptions as fireman, draft- man, salesman, foreman, (ad nauseum). In the United States,Cycling Federation's rules, it says: "Veterans, senior women and junior men may have the option of riding in senior men races...senior women riders may ride with senior men ONLY if there is no senior women's race on the program. "PANt. PANt. PAT Diane Ainsworth of Southern Floral Co. for rendering aid to the driver of Breakthrough's out—of-gas truck one April day in rush hour traffic. Another case of feminist—support- —feminist. RePANel the billboards enlisting combative support for the cookie sales promotions of the Girl Scouts of America through the menacing slogan: "It's hard to Say No to a Green Beret" Girls, scout around for a more humanistic image! PATie Cakes for Dr. Bobbie Ann Mason for writing "The Girl Sleuth" a book of literary criticism of series books for girls, such as Nancy Drew, The Bobsey twins and Judy Bolton books. After publishing her first book on Nabokov's Ada, she decided to return to her favorite childhood stories of daring independent girls to consider their effect on her own feminist feelings. A PANdemonium broke out on two separate occasions when two women reporters—in the line of duty—tried to interview County Treasurer Hartsell Gray. On April 26 Sandra Feldman of KTRH-Radio wanted to get a statement from Gray about a written report he submitted to HISD. She first followed and then ran after him into the parking lot when it became obvious Gray was avoiding her questioning him. when she asked, "Why am I having to chase you?"he replied, "Apparently, you find me so attractive, you can't resist me." It was obvious Feld- man,carrying her recorder and microphone, was a reporter. Two days later after Gray made an appearance before city council Carole Kneeland, KPRC-TV's City Hall reporter asked the county treasurer, "Some people at the county say you are way behind in your county duties. How do you justify coming to the city" telling them how to run their affairs. With cameras rolling Gray first said, "I can't." Then, he blew up at Kneeland accusing her of being put up to do this by Mayor Hofheinz in order to "gut (him) politically." When she denied that accusation, he called her a "liar" and hit her microphone and shoved her out of the elevator door they were both entering. A peppermint PATtie for Nancy Harvey Steorts, the Agriculture Department's Special Assistant for Consumer Affairs for proposing a system of "portion control" for restaurants to adopt. According to her system, there would be different sized servings of the same dish, the smaller the cheaper. The ILGWU (International Ladies' Garment Workers Union) has the advertising market all sewn up. They are spending over $1 million to bring the ILGWU name and label before the public. The emphasis is on the human element, in a move to counteract the negative image of large unions that many people hold. All the participants in the radio and TV ads are members of the union which is 80 percent female and which was founded in 1900 by 111 cloakmakers meeting in a hall on New York,s East Side. PAT the union for its positive portrayal of working women . 8
