MISS ETHEL BREWER IS
HEW “Y” DIRECTOR
Miss Ethel Brewer has accepted
the position of Executive Director
at the Northside Branch YWCA.
Miss Brewer, a native of Birming
ham, Ala., is a graduate of Fisk
University and has taught in the
Birmingham schools several year3.
She received her Masters Degree
Sociology from the University
of Chicago. The staff expects the
new Director Tuesday, Sept. 17.
Classes are being held this year
as usual. Anyone interested in
=ewing (afternoon and evening),
first aid (evening), home nursing
(evening) or nutrition (afteroon)
please call the office (Webster
1539). You are welcome.
In preparation for Open House,
which is an annual affair, both
the building and grounds and the
fall open house committees have
been quite busy. Their aim is to
make the entire building a? well
as the activities more attractive
to all concerned. Other definite
plans will be announced later.
The Branch welcomes any wo
man or girl to join its committees
clashes and clubs. For information
call Webster 1539.
Miss Ruth Sunderliu and Miss
Geneva Burney, Directors for the
teen-age program of the YWCA
announced the adoption of the
name “Y-Teens” for the YWCA
urogram for teen-age girls, former
!y called Girl Reserves.
The changing of the name from
Girl Reserves to Y-Teens was made
official by the National Board of
the Young Women’s Christian As
sociation last june at a meeting
held at national headquarters in
New York City. This action was
taken at the request of many teen
age and adult members in the 325
registered YWCA clubs and 434
'•ommunity associations where the
Girl Reserve program has been
mo n so red since 1918.
I or many years, members of
the YWCA felt that the name Girl
Reserves did not adequately des
:ribe the program the agency of
ters for teen-age boys and girls.
Questionnaires sent to members of
local associations showed that
many felt that the name Girl Re
serves was too dificult to interpret
lid not take into consideration the
ncreasing number of boys parti
cipating in the program due to in
creased co-ed activities, and did’nt
idequately describe or indicate a
relationship to the YMCA.
In recent years, there has been
in increased trend to make the
irogram more co-edu«litiona1. With
the advent of teen-age canteens
md co-ed clubs, the name rM-1
serves did not adequately describe
a pro°rsm which included bovs.
Over 50 000 boys are now partici
natino- in teen-age activities of the
The new name, Y-Teens, will de
scribe the age group of the pro
gram, is applicable to the club,
canteen summer program, confer
ences and the total program. It is
also advantageous in indicating
that teen-age members are an ac
tive part of the constituency of the
YW CA throught the country.
The lotfal Y-Teen program is
carried on in Benson, Tech, Cen
tral, North and South high schools;
Kellom and Howard Kennedy gr
ade schools and at the Central As
sociation w-hich is located at 17
and St. Mary's Avenue, and the
