clared by President Christopher Tomp
kins, of Hie Medical College of Vir?

and competent to' practice their pro?
The graduating address was deliver?
ed by l>r. James C. Molcalf, 61 Rich?
mond, whose speech wat for the most
pan <>n the Influence of the trained
nurse In the attainment uf social
Ideals. Unlike seine who speak "ii
the subject he dwelt more upon her ns|
a means toward the llnal accomplish
men! of universal pence, rather than,
as an accompaniment ?>f war. Taking
the careers >?i Klorence Nightingale
nud Clara Barton, generally coupled
with their work In war time, he show?
ed how their labors were directed ul?
timately to ?iinivers.il pence und the
brotherhood of man. toward which thel
whole creation moves.'
Miss Van Vort. at tne conclusion or
Dr. Mctcatl s address, read the nurse s
oath with each of the graduates re?
peating the words arter tier.
l>r Charles It. Robins then delivered
the diplomas and pins to the graduates,
who are as follows; M'-s B. Josephine

in making his charge to the women
who were about to no ? tit for the prac?
tice of their profession, Dr. Robins
said that While Miss Union ami Miss
Nightingale, as they had been told,
"ere figures that every trained nurse
might follow, he could give no belter
model for their guidance than Miss
Van Vort. und>M- whose training they
had obtained their diplomas.
"For unswerving devotion to duty
and to the Institution Hint she und
represented for nine ytars," said Dr.
Robins, "I can point out to you no
better example than yi?ur superinten?
dent." Cominning, he said that while
those women with international re
potations undoubtedly were worthy of
Uli that had been said of them, he had
no doubt hut that ailss Van Vort pos?
sessed characteristics equalling thens.
and that under like conditions sho
would measure up In every way to Hit
standards set by them. Th's tribute to
Hi.- woman that is known to nearly
every one In the cltv. was greeted
with a grrnt burst of applause by the.
audience, to the evident embarrassment]
of Miss Van Vort.
St'II laboring under the effects of
Dr. Roblns's unexpected compliment.
Miss Van Vort read her repott of the
training echbol for the year past. As
she regained her composure', the gath
f i i it it heard with more handclaps her
history of the school, which not only
took in ths work "f the year, hut re?
viewed the Institution since she was
made superintendent, thus showing
the gradual but sure progress made
from year to year with a word con?
cerning the alumnae, Ind'catlng that
th" Interest and influence of the
school does not end with graduation.
Including the seven graduates, there
were enrolled during '.he last session
frrty-n.no students, divided between
senior. Intermediate and junior classes
The exercises were closed with the
benediction by Rev. P. Joseph Magrl,

Mr. Brantley. In the course of an

hour, presented ? graphic portrayal of
the life and work of Alexander Hi Ste?
phens?a life which, lie said, was truly
dedicated to the arervloc of country ami

Mr. Brantley saw a deadly parallel
