He that has made man has the power to destroy man and everything thereof or therein. Let he who desires to be righteous, be righteous, he that desires to be holy, be holy, he that is an infidel, cleanse him by the word of God. KNOW YOURSELF! By RUTH TAYLOR • . . The one person you can’t dodge is yourself. The one crit icism you can t dismiss is that of your own self knowledge. The one charge you cannot argue against is that before the bar of your own conscience. The one person you have to live with is yourself. Know yourself and your capabilities. If you spent as much time and energy trying to live up to what you want to be, as you do putting on a front for the benefit of others, you'd really get somewhere. In an organization to which I belong, there is one man who knows himself. Everyone looks up to him, for, no mat ter what the circumstances, they know that he will decide according to what he thinks is right for him to do, with the result that he is always fair to others. There is a great deal of difference between being ego tistical and being self-contained—just as great a difference as that between isolationism, which is the egotism of a na tion, and self-sufficiency. One is the front, the other a fu ture. Know yourself and live up to yourself. Be yourself. You will feel fear vanishing because you are sure. >oul own master. It isn’t easy, but its rewards are gieat. Therein lies the only real freedom from fear, because ^er,so u^lon any and all problems lies within one’s self. Find out what you believe and why. Then you won’t be swayed by momentary emotion or bv unreasoning preju dice You will be sure and secure, able‘to go ahead because you know where you are going. To be self contained, independent and self-reliant is to be long to one’s self. It means you will not need to lean on others or to depend on what they can do for you, or to feel tnat to get ahead you must push others aside. o -?idon t be afraid to change your mind. It doesn’t make any difference what your opinion has been—get right. The warns changing our views as our outlook changes. We are egmning to see things in their global significance at last. W e are learnng that no longer is our world bounded by where we can drive, nor our lives bounded by our recrea tions. We are citizens of a world and that world will be not only what we make it but what we ourselves are Know yourself! Crystal Springs News H. J.

Cadet Nurse Corps Uniforms and insignia for the U. S. Cadet Nurse Corps have been announced by the U. S. Public Health Service, Federal Security Agency, which administers the Bol ton Act providing Federal funds for nurse education. Cadet Nurses will wear outdoor uniforms of gray with silver but tons. The winter uniform consists of a gray wool jacket and skirt, gnd a guard’s coat of gray velour. The shoulders of both jacket and topcoat are marked by red epau lets which are placed over the shoulder rather than in the con ventional military fashion. The guard’s coat is belted in back, has a convertible collar, side pockets and set-in-sleeves. Summer uniforms are made of 1 gray and white striped cotton, with rde epaulets, large pockets and a > white tailored blouse. A grap par- ‘ atroop satin raincoat with officer's collar and wide belt is a part of the summer “issue.” t Insignia worn by the Cadet Nurse t Corps is historically associated with r the profession of medicine and - nursing. The newly designed Ca det Nurse Corps insignia, which will be worn on the upper left sleeve of the uniform, is a silver Maltese cross of eight points on a dark red background. The symbol was adopted by the Knights Hospi talers during the First Crusade. In 1909, this first nursing order carried on its charitable work for wounded Christian soldiers, exactly ,721 years before the birth of Flor ence Nightingale. The eight points of the cross are symbolical of the eight beatitudes. Later, the order of the Knights Hospitalers was changed to a mil itary order, but the nursing order was re-established in the 16th and 17th centuries on the Isle of Mal ta in the Mediterranean, and the the Maltese Cross. Cadet Nurses will wear the Corps Device of the U. S. Public Health Service as lapel insignia and on the buttonsof their uniforms. The insignia contains the horizon tal fouled anchor with winged ca duceus upright in the center of the shank. The historic significance of the' Public Health Service device goes back to the formation of the ser vice in 1798 and the earliest obli gations of the service, the medical care of sick and injured seamen. The fouled anchor represents sea men in difficulty, the caduceus is j the staff of Mercury, messenger of i I the gods, and is the ancient sym bol of the physician. A quota of 65.000 new student nurses has been set for the U. S. 1 Cadet Nurse Corps for 1943. Wo men between the ages of 17 or 18 (depending upon State and school j regulations) and 35. who are high . school graduates, in good health, and have satisfactory grades, may qualify to become members of the l Corps, and study to become pro fessional nurses under all-expense scholarships. In addition to tui tion, maintenance, uniforms and school fees, Cadet Nurses will re ceive monthly allowances, ranging from $15 to $30 a month according • o grade. Candidates for the Corps should nake application directly to the ichool of nursing of their choice.
