Women of America who have been

Indeed, the plan is to-augment the
supply of nurses on duty In- the
United States 'In 'military and civil

be withdrawn for use abroad with

office and the Red Cross. "About 4,000
are "now abroad. The"wounded will

American. army on both sides of the
Atlantic Is 20,000 nurses for'19I8 and
an additional 10,000 for 1019.' '
Various plans -have been suggested

Great Britain whereby volunteer aids
to graduate nurses are enrolled. But
that leads to nothing definite, And
America has wanted to addpt some
thing that would be of permanent
value to the nation.
For After the 'War.
Not only was It desired to provide
for the expansion of our nurse corps
during the war, but to provide for the
care of the sick after the war, when
the supply of nurses must be large In
order to make up for the natural
withdrawals from service.
In brief, the 'scheme "provides for
the enrollment of women through the
Army Nursing School, Surgeon -Gen
