As written (is this a typo?) those four are local variables of the
function, and are freed when dowork exits.  If they're supposed to be
self.name, etc., then they will be added to the object, and you could
do something like

a = A()
print a.__dict__

Or just  >>> a.__dict__  in the interpreter to examine the object.

Hebb's dictum:  If it isn't worth doing, it isn't worth doing well.
