THB EASTER MESSAGE OF
THE RED CROSS NURSE.
Wearing on their uniforms the "U.
S." of the Army and Navy Corps or
the insignia of the Red Cross, over
2,000 American Red Cross nurses have
set sail for Europe, since last Easter,
on their supreme adventure as soldires
of life. -They have slipped off quiet
ly, as the soliders do; under orders of<
obedience, like them; for any length
of service-that the war may last, like
them; in the face of danger and hard
ship, prpared for any sacrifice to pro
tect the lives of our men.
*Their tasks today are the very em -
bodiment of the Easter message. In
our celebration of the day this year,
most Americans wil have in their
hearts the thought of France with
their men and our and our Allies' in
the trenches; our nurses and theirs
and the Allies' nurses at their posts;
our flag, with theirs, in hundreds of
French churches; Easter hymns in
hospitals, chapels, cathedrals, refuges:
for the homeless; the sound of choirs
mingling with the soundI of guns.
Many nations are singing th e Triumph
Hymn, and in the hospitals of many
nations trained women are exempli
fying the Easter miracle ofilove. And
throughout all the warring nations,
c ntries are calling for more nurses.
