army of men in France to win this
war, so it Is necessary to have an
army of women at home. This army
of women is to be nurses; to care for
their own families in sicknesp, their
neighbors, the sick in our hospitals
and our wounded soldiers who will be
sent back to us.

young women to take the nurses'
training and fill the places of the many
who have gone overseas and the many
more' who will go in the near future.
