sage had heen applied for at the
earliest date, yet the delay went
on until Miss Connelly hecaine
discouraged and decided to accept
another position. However Miss
Castro could accept in October
and we were very pleased to have
her efficient help. Miss Castro be

Unfortunately Miss Castro was

In January the first cases of In

the epidemic became gcneial over

schools were closed one after another-
We owe Mrs. McOrcgor our
warm thanks for her splendid
help. She took hold of the hos
pital work when the need was
most pressing, and as soou as she
could be released she followed up
her special work, attending to the
influenza convalescents, seeing if
the children were continuing to

with them lias been of much im

The plans are not settled yet as
to the district nurse, but we will
endeavor to have the matter set

that during the vacation the dis

work if she would take up the in
fant feeding question. The child

continuous feeding when an in

2(5. Kef erring to the miscellane
ous cases mentioned in the above
report, these are all cases which
have been treated at the school
clinics, comprising injuries, cohln,
coughs, and all the usual childish
ailments one would be likely to
find in a large school.
When I first took up the duties
of district nurse, 1 was rather
puzzled as to what course to take
with regard to an eve disease com
monly called "pink eve," which
was very prevalent in the camps
at that time. It was, of course,
quite impossible for one person to
give the requisite treatments that
were necessary. I noticed there
was a great tendency on the part
of the mothers of the children to
conceal the fact that they had con
tracted the disease, and discover
ed that the others were afraid
they would be parted from their
children, and the children had, as
all small children naturally would
nave, a great dread of being sent
to the hospital for an indefinite
time. I decided I would go round
to the camps and tell the people
1 would demonstrate to the
mothers or responsible persons,
how to tneat this eye disease.
These cases all made good recov
ery and I think this is ost en
couraging it shows that the peo
ple are amenable to reason and
are wilmiir to be tauirht other
things, that would benefit their
During the mouth of April I ob
tained permission from Dr. Young
to give those children who seemed
to have difficulty in recouperatiug
from the after effects of the in
fluenza, a rather well-known tonic,

My work, while substituting for
Miss Castro, has been chiefly with
the schoolchildren, clinics at the
different schools during the morn
ing hours, taking children to the
hospital, to consult the doctor
when necessarv, and in the after
noon following up cases of report
ed sickness among the children.
aud keeping in touch with the
various camps as much as possi
ble. Some of the children whom 1
have come in contact with at the
schools have struck me as being
particularly uncurred for. I have
called on the mothers of these
children and suggested that they
should see that the children were
clean and decently clothed before
sending them to school
Open windows has been one of
my favorite topics of conversa
tion, so much so that I believe I
am considered quite a crank on
the subject, and quite often hear
and see windows being opened
when I go through the various
camps truth compels me to add
that 1 quite frequently hear and
see them being closed when I de
part from those same camps.
However, on the whole, I have
found that my suggestions on hy
giene are very graciously received.
I should like lo take this oppor
tunity of expressing my very greaf
appreciation of the' invariable
courtesy and many kindnesses
shown me by the principals and
teachers of the Lihue, Hanamaulu,
Iluleia and Wailua schools.
