Society Report Cites
13,096 Calls.
A total of 13,096 visits were made
to 5,251 patients by the staff of the
Instructive Visiting Nurse Society dur
ing February, Miss Gertrude H. Bowl
ing, executive director, reported to the
society’s Board of Directors at its
monthly meeting held at headquarters
in the Albee Building yesterday.
Miss Bowling pointed out that there
had been less sickness from the respira
tory disorders than is customary at
this season of the year. "The work,”
she said, “is largely among maternity
patients and medical and surgical
patients who always need care in the
community.”
Mrs. Reeve Lewis, vice chairman of
the Nursing Committee, told the board
that this committee had held regular
meetings, one of which had been a
program meeting in the Brightwood
Center, 5331 Georgia avenue N.W. At
this meeting Miss Amy Cowan, the
supervisor, had explained the growth
and development of the visiting nurse
work among persons living in the area
served by this center, that is% Pet
worth, Brightwood, Park View, Six
teenth street extended and Takoma
Park, D. C.
Reports on Dressings.
Miss Virginia Hunt, a member of
the Dressing Committee, reported that
weekly sessions had been held in the
headquarters and branch offices and
emphasized the great assistance given
the organization through various
groups of volunteers. She stated that
in addition to the dressings made by
the committees that meet in the vari
ous branch offices, the organization
had for many years been indebted to
the volunteers of the Red Cross who
were among the oldest friends of the
association in this particular activity.
She estimated that from 15,000 to
20,000 surgical dressings had been
made by the Red Cross volunteers for
the Visiting Nurse Society during
1937.
The treasurer's report was presented
by the assistant treasurer, John L.
Proctor.
Delegates appointed to represent the
organization on the Council of Social
Agencies for the ensuing year were
Mrs. Lewis and Miss Bowling.
> Contributions Sought.
Comment was made on the house
keeping aide project which is a W.
P. A. project of which the District of
Columbia Health Department is the
legal sponsor. It was pointed out
that the W. P. A. money could only
be used to pay the workers and that
In order to insure the success of the
project, additional contributions were
necessary for the training of the
Workers and to purchase cleaning ma
terials, arrange for carfare, etc. A
group of volunteers are endeavoring
to raise sufficient funds for this pur
pose and it was suggested that con
tributions could be mailed to Mrs.
Prentice Willson.
Others at the meeting included Mrs.
Leonard A. Block, Mrs. Hutchinson I.
Cone, Mrs. Henry Gratton Doyle,
Joshua Evans, jr.; Mrs. David E. Fin
ley, Mrs. Charles C. Glover, jr.; Mrs.

last month, with a total of 17,341 reve
