SISTCS OF SOLDIERS
MAY GO TO FRANCE
COUNCIL OF NATIONAL DE
The United Statea must have 25,
000 atuilent nurses now-student nura
ei to release graduate nurses for the
work at tha front. Without student
trnr.err to take their placea graduate
nuises ran not bo sent to the frant
in Europe and our men wilt Buf
fer from tha lark of rare. Tha Unit
ed Statea Government has placed the
opportunity and responsibility of re
cruiting these atudent nurses in the
haqds of tha Woman'a Committee of
the Council of National Defense.
Now that our boys are being called
in the draft every month and a con
stant stream of them are being aent
to France it is a very poignant ques
tion in every family whether the
proviaiona for taking care of tha
great number of soldiers la growing
with the increasing need for euch
rare. The nurses who are graduates
will aoon have to go where the need
la gre teat and tho way will be open
fcr the thoosanda of girls and women
from the agea of 19 to 35 to enroll
themarivea aa a body of student nurs
es to fill the placea made vacant. It
la not only for the period of the
war that three nurses will he needed,
but for the reconstruction period
after the war la over, the need will
he Just aa great.
A campaign for atuilent nurses will
be conducted in thia county aa aoon
aa tha 'full instructions are In hand.
Mrs. Frank Yoat and Mra. Ira L,
Smith will have charge of thia and
it is hoped to enroll a large number
of girls nnd woman who will take
training ao that their whole time will
be given to the work which will mean
that thousands of graduate nurses
can be released to do full duty at the
It is planned to have a complete
registration of wopian with the sv
cationi for which they are fitted
or for which they are willing to
train. Tha patriotism, of our girls
and women la aa unquestioned aa that
of the men who are going ao cheer
fully to the training camps and ao
amilingry to the trenches. Thia ia
the first definite call to the service
of the country and the Hag that has
come to the women. Last year they
were asked to regiatar by occupation
snd vocation hut the purpose of the
government was not ao plain nor the
need so great aa now and tha call
comes with fores snd inaiatencs at
this tims. Ths data of registration
will be aettled a little later. That
our women will respond with alacrity
ia unquestioned and now that so msBy
are asking what definite work they
ran do to match that of their broth
era and sweethearts the answer comes
like a clarion call: There is the
Student Nurse Reserve calling right
now for 25,000 women to enter train
