Survey of Nursing
It is the national plan of the Ameri
can Red Cross to make a survey of the
nursing resources of the United
States. The Pacific Division is pre
paring to conduct its survey through
local Red Cross Chapter Organiza
tions. Mrs. O. T. Williams has been
appointed Division Supervisor of the
Survey by the Division Bureau of
Nursing, to direct the work.
Miss Lillian L. White, Director of
the Bureau of Nursing, in announcing
the general plan to the Chapters,
quotes from a letter to the Chairman
of the American Red Cross War
Council, signed by the Surgeon-
General of the Army and approved by
the Secretary of War, as follows:
"Because of the increased mil
itary program, it is necessary that
there should be immediately available,
definite information as to the num
ber of graduate nurses available for
military service; also supplementary
nursing personnel, trained hospital at
tendants and all others who are
qualified to render aid under the di
rection of graduate nurses in the care
of the civilian population. As the Red
Cross is the agency for recruiting the
nurses for the Army Nurse Corps, I
wish you would take immediate steps
to make a nation-wide survey of the
nursing resources in order that a suf
ficient number of graduate nurses may
be withdrawn for military service
with the least interference of the pos
sible needs of the civilian population."
The Red Cross stands, primarily,
for SERVICE. Committees and in
dividual members must keep at their
work, but they must not overlook the
fact that the Fourth Liberty Loan of
fers wonderful opportunity and the
great privilege of extending this uni
verasal spirit of serving. Any Red
Cross worker who hasn't been asked
to help should go to the Libert;, Lo-n
Committee and ask permission to be
of service in building a stone wall
that the Huns can never climb over,
break through or crawl under.
In the shadow of Fuji Yama, the
sacred mountain of Japan, a band of
intrepid ' American women iv"t
daily in a Buddhist Temple to sew for
the Red Cross.
The canvas having been completed and there being no further business
the Board adjourns, to meet, Monday October 6th, 1918.
Attest: F. N. VAN MARTER, Clerk.
W. B. STEPHENS,
Chairman Board of Supervisors
Mohave County, Arizona.
A. E. F. Boys
The Red Cross, by arrangement
with the War Department and Post
Office Department, will have charge
of mailing all overseas Christmas
gifts for the boys. Coupons bearing
names of soldiers .(to be forwarded
by General Pershing) will be distvi
utcd to the next of kin and the Red
Cross will furnish the boxes or car
toon which relatives and friends will
fill. These cartons will be in the
hands of Red Cross Chapters in am
ple time for shipment and arrival
overseas before Christmas.
Salvage means more than gather
ing junk for the money it brings. It
is conservation in its easonep Jli'"
now the Government needs tin and
platinum. Inform yourselves and Iarn
what uses these metals are put to. It
also needs nut shells, fruit pits and
seeds to make carbon fov gas masks,
having this apparently useless refuse
may save a soldier's life. Feathers
are needed and all the castor beans,
wild or domestic, that can be obtained.
The Red Cross
Ever hear the ator of the Red
Cross Dollar? If not, got ready for
something interesting. At the movies,
in the papers, from the platform the
most interesting stor ever told will
be related to the American people.
Watch for it listen to it- tell your
friends about it
Thanks to the generosity and Red
Cross Spirit of the Americans, 10,
000,000 Belgians will keep warm this
winter in the clothing we have shar
ed with them. This should warm the
hearts of those who give as well as
the bodies of those who receive.
The only conscription necessary in
Red Cross membership is to look an
American straight in the eye and ask
if he belongs.
By some sort of canny instinct a
troop train of colored soldiers got
routed via Turlock where the Canteen
was serving water melons.
An abundant harvest a thankful
heart and safe reserves.
"Right and liberty have obliterated
space and the ocean to bring France
and America together." President
The Pacific Division was the first
in the country to fill its quota in the
general call for nurses all honor and
glory to our patriotic women who "o
nobly responded. This does not mean,
however, that the demand has in any
measure abated, and graduate nurses
are urged to continue enrolling as the
military demand will continue as long
as the war lasts and probably longer.
Women are needed in all branches of
nursing and to train to fill the gaps
left by those assigned to fiist line
Those who dare all must spare all.
