Messrs. Wilson brothers report the
sale of their home places southeast
of Jerome, to Twin Falls parties.
The price was $200.00 per acre,

and with two sets of farm buildings.
The Wilson boys were among the first
on the Tract and have, by hard ef
forts. brought their places to a high
state of cultivation. They still own

which we trust they will see fit to
farm and remain among us.

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withdrawn from the communities for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.
