REPORT Of RED CROSS
It may be of interest, and we sin
cerely hope it is to a great majorit
of our people, to know a little of th
work of Clarendoi County's Red Cros
Public Health Nurse. Our nurse,
say our, for Miss Moore is here fo
the benefit of every person, white ani
colored in Clarendon County, has bee1
and is doing a great work, which I fee
very few people are aware of. Hav
ing only one nurse for the whole o
our large County it is impossible fo
Miss Moore to be in the different see
tions of the County as often as she o
the members of the nursing committe
would like to have her be. Howevei
before many months the Committe
hopes to have an assisting nurse in th
field with Miss Moore, and we fet
sure that when the two nurses ar
working in union the results will b
greater than they are at present. Eve
working all over this entire Count
for the past two and one-half month
alone, Miss Moore has (lone wonder
There were three (3) baby confet

their babies to the Red Cross room
every Saturday afternoon betwee
the hours of two a.'' five for them t

instructions in the care and feeding c
them. These children are to be ou
future parents and should they not l

I feel sure there are few of us wl
realize the enormous number of ti

the first of August Miss Moore h
spent the greater portion of her tin
inspecting these tubercular cases at
their home surroundings, which sl
found in so many cases most appal

L precautions whatsoever in protectii
the other members of the househo
from this most dreaded disease.
Miss Moore is at the Red Cro

noon from two until five o'clock, ai
she will be more than glad to ha

There has been formed in thirte,
