THE TEXAS HOSPITAL PLAN
State Department Places Work Flnt
on Llet Financing; the Responsi
bility of All Unite.
"Tho department of Texns plnces
hospltnt work flrst and considers It n
privilege to do
ble in this serv
ice," writes Miss
Aila May Mad
dox, secretary of
the department of
Texas. And her
report of the has-J
pltal work which
lias been done In
Texas during the
past year bears
out the statement.
A state, boa
WHw iff Sf ilrSftT'H
Mn, Edward C
pltal fund was Instituted May 23, 1021.
The llrst check which came Into head
quarters was from Santa Anna, a unit
so young that It had not yet received
its charter. The Wichita Falls auxil
iary, known as "Ma Hurdlck's unit,"
was among the flrst to contribute.
Since then approximately $0,500 has
been deposited In the hospital fund,
four Legion posts having sent In, with
out solicitation, about $300 of the
nmount. One post held a goat-roping
contest to raise funds and others sent
In tlio receipts of their poppy sales.
The object of tho state fund Is to
make the financing of the hospital
work the responsibility of all units, not
limited to tlio ones nearest the hos
pitals. The State hospital committee,
a chairman elected by tho stato con
vention and three members from each
unit situated near a hospital for ex
service men, handles tlio money that
comes In. The chairman directs the
work. Instructs her committee, ap
proves statements and vouchers, pre
pares bulletins and docs an enormous
amount of work among the boys them
selves. Mrs. David M. Duller of Hous
ton served faithfully In that capacity
last year, and Mrs. J. Ward McKce,
also of Houston, Is tho active chair
man. Tlio report says: "Mrs. Murray's
messages to tho units In the hospital
bulletins and her vision in the hospital
work hns Inspired the Texas units to
accomplish nil this. It was her Idea,
also, that the units ndopt patients and
break the monotony of days In the hos
pital wards by writing to them and
'sending little gifts. Greatest help Is
given to men without compensation,
but men with compensation who need
cheering nro adopted also."
Mrs. Edward Clinton Murray of
Houston is president of tho depart
ment of Tcxns, and Is also one of the
national vice presidents of the Ameri
can Legion Auxiliary. She wns one of
the flrst organizers of the nuxlllary In
Texas and was elected to tho state
presidency when the organization was
formed In San Antonio In December,
1020. Under her direction many units
linve been formed nnd It Is her pur
pose at present to establish n unit for
each of the 201 Legion posts In Texas,
