COMPLETE NURSING SURVEY IS TO BEGIN THIS MONTH —Ml'— With more than 18,000 nurses withdrawn from the communities for war service, either here or abroad, and the necessity for withdrawing as many more during the next few month.?, has come the need for more complete Information concerning the nursing resources of the country. The Secretary of War and the Sur geon General of the Army have re quested the Red Cross to take such steps as will be necessary to obtain this Information, and plans are al ready under way for making a na tion-wide survey of the available supply of nurses in the United States. This survey has been planned pri marily as a means of Intelligently di recting the withdrawal of nurses for the Array and Navy corps, but is also intended as a safeguard for the health of the civilian population. Only by equal distribution can the nursing resources of the country be conserv ed, and an efficient policy In supply ing the nurses be pursued. The survey will be made through the agency of the Red Cross chap ters, under the direction of the Di vision managers and national head quarters. It will be a complete class ification of the nursing resources of the United States, and will include graduate nurses, registered and un registered. undergraduates, pupil nurses, nurses' aides, and that large class of women who are so-called semi-trained nurses. Under this last group come trained attendants, mid wives, and practical nurses. Frederick D. Munroe, of the Bu reau of Survey, in the Department of Nursing, will direct the survey, with the co-operation of Jane A. Delano, director of the Department of Nurs ing of the Red Cross. The Red Cross must know the available supply of nurses. If they are to assign twenty five thousand nurses to military hos pitals by January 1, 1919, and a pos sible 40,000 by July 1 of next yeaE The survey means, in brief, the conservation of our nursing forces by equal distribution. The duty of registering is an incumbent upon as military duty is to men. nurses and the need for them is as urgent. Mrs. Piper has registration cards for those in this community who are qualified to register, and requests that anyone so qualified will see her as soon as possible.

"I don't see what it wants of them," The Thoughtless Waster cried. "It wants the carbon that they make," the Patriot replied. "So we're gathering up the cherry pits. the peach stones and the shell Of walnuts and Brazil nuts and of hickory nuts as well. And the youngsters hunt for butter nuts In every dale and dell. To furnish materials for carbon." "What do they want the carbon for?" the Thoughtless Waster cried. "To manufacture gas masks." the Patriot replied. "And a carbon respirator In a gas mask over there Will save our boys from gas attacks Come on and do your share! "We dare not waste one single stone _let's give them all they ask' It takes 200 peach pits to equip a single mask. And they've given you nnd mo and everybody else the task.
