RED C NURSE
IS COMING HERE
Public Health Nursing and Home
Hygiene Instruction Part of
Peace Time Program.
SPEAKS AT . CHAUTAUQUA.
"Nurse the Most Needed Woman in
the World," Says Miss Jane A. De
lano, Director of the Department of
Nursing of the American Red Cross.
To place the public health on a
higher plane than It tns ever been is
the object of a national program un
dertaken by the American Red Cross
as part of its peace time plan. From
coast to coast and from lakes to gulf
the Red Cross Is spreading the gospel
of good health and of the proper care
of the sick by fostering the study and
practice of nursing, both by orgaized
public health activities and by meem
bers of the family in every I-'e.
Through the Chautauqua an Oi dat
representative of the Red Cross De
partinent of Nursing wilt soon tell the
people of this community the story of
what is being done and will ask their
co-opera tin. -
One of the great lessons of the World
war is found in the unnecessarily low
standards of physical health revealed.
This was brought out most forcibly in
the great number of rejections of
young men called to the colors under
the Selective Service Law. Record.i
show that throughout the United
States one-third of the young men ex
amined fcr military service were dis
qualifled from bearing arms for their
country through minor physical de
fects, a large proportion of which
might have been avoided by compul
sory school exaInination and proper
medical and nursing care.
Urgent Need of Nurses.
Further proof of tho general urgent
need of wonen trained in nursing was
supplied by the epidemics of Spanish
influenza that have caused terrifit
loss 9f life, and suffering throughout
the country. Hundreds of thousands
of persons died, and In many commu
nities the plague spread without any
adequate means of checking it because
of the impossibility of obtaining wom
en capable of caring for the victims.
Reports show that many persons ac
tually died without attention because
the ovemvorked doctors could not
reach them all, nurses could not be
found who knew what to do, and
neighbors feared to go near the help
The uselessness and danger of such
a waste of "human power" is only too
apparent, for the health and strength
of a nation can only be measured by
the health and strength of Its people.
Recognizing the fact that the crux of
the whole situation lies in giving every
conununity the means of building up
its own nursing strength, the Amer[
can Ited Cross. In co-operation with
the various Chautauquas, Is sending
broadcast the message that none can
afford to ignore.
