Historically and practically, nursing Is
a basic work for tho Red Cross. In Hs

allotted to provide women to prepare
themselves for public nursing. Tho
y home visits made by tho 1,240 nurses
x aggregated nearly 1,500,000, visits to
schools, numbered 140,000, and in six
months 1,250,000 school children were
Inspected by these nurses and where
defects were found advised examina
tion by physicians. In rural commu
nfllcs this service has made- n very
marked advance and has won thou
sands of converts to approved'methods
of disease prevention.
/ In home hygiene and care of th? sick

methods of proper care where Illness Is
not so serious as to require profes
sional service, the Red Cross conduct

Preparing to Take Action Against Its
. Members who Violate Contracts.
Columbia, Oct. 30.-'Every mem
ber of tho South Carolina Cotton
Uro wore1 Co-operativo Association
who sells cotton outsido of tho as

to pay- liquidated damages of flvo
cents a pound for every pound sold

tecting the association from viola
tions of thc contract against every

lng conducted in encfi case, and if
tho .association finds that tho con
tract lins boen violated, and if the
contract has boen roally violated,
legal procoodlngs will foRow.
? Mom hers of tho nssoclatlon are al
most unanimous in demanding that
all violators of tho contract be pro
cooded against. They declaro that to
permit any ono guilty of broaching
tho contract to escape would be to
break tho backbone of tho organiza
tion and would croato a spirit of dis
satisfaction among members. t
"Wo proposo to prococd without
fear or favor against overy man who
dooB, not fully live up lo tho con
tract/* says a statement by tho as
sociation. "Thus far there have
boon only about six alleged viola
tions of tho contract. Wo aro investi

Tho mombors of tho association may
rost assured that no guilty party will
