nesses shown me during those hoursHfor the countless Hmessagesn taken for me,

TO OUR BIG SISTERS
Xfve said to ourselves, a fine verse we will writeg
A paean of praise. of their Beauties wen raveg
Their nursing wen hoost till they Hush at the sight
Cf the pleasure and help that they gave.
So for hours we pondered, we scratched and we scrawtedg
We twisted, contortect, resorted to stangg
We tested and tried tilt our heads were near hatd-1
But we still hadn,t gotten the Hhangf, ,
Then we finally decided to leave it Has ish
To he true to the verse and forget to he kind,
To say anything that comes into our heads-f
As long as we get it to rhyme.
The Frantcentield sisters we,H never forget, such a charming and lovely pair
They have a sort of Hpocono twangnf-hut what heautiful curly hair!
Gr Tommy who is wise in ways she hasntt gleaned from hooks:
Vve would,n,t want her funny strut-'hut geet Weyd love her looks! s.
Miss Hastie we with envy view, she's quite the perfect nurseg
Has beauty, poiseg hut is she slow? fthis verse is getting worsej.
Now Betsy Johnson, there's a gait hlue eyes that shine like stars,-4
But so darn thin a puff of wind might shoot her up to Mars.
That noisy little Simmons girl-'can we forget her? never!
Her chuhhy cheeks, her coitish ways, her efforts to he clever.
Miss Mcllhatten we all Ioveg of course, she's never quiet. '
She sings and shouts, cavorts ahout, grows stout, and laughs at diet.
We Worry so ahout Miss Koch, dark heauty, charming ways:
A real "ma.n's girlf' hut miles away, in fact, she's in an daze.
The hahy of your freakish class, that tiny Richwine elf,
Puts alcohol tags on patients' wrists, and patients on the shelf.
A curly head, a southern drawl, has little Dolly Bowen.
Shes always in the smoking room. Smoking? dear not sewin,.
Now Alta with her raucous voice, disturhs our needed rest.
A real good sport in spite of that, we count her 'mong the hest.
Qur Ahhie Dale'-fa lovely girl with eyes so dark and deep-1
A little on the heavy side, hut not from too much sleep!
Miss Hall is famous for her grace, we,ve never seen her hustle:
But still she seems to get ahout, escorted hy her Russell.
Now Miss MacKenzie has us stumped, she acts so meek and mild:
But we hear she tosses shoes and shouts when someone gets her riled.
Miss Von Steuhen missed her calling, we're sure you,H all agree,
A Barrett or a Barrymore is what she ought to he.
Vvho terrorizes prohies? Who keeps us all in awe?
I guess we aggravate her toog-apoI0gi6S, Miss SIUIW-
Betty and Dot you can them: Jitterhugs we all titterg

FROM THE PROBIES
Gn a dreary, rainy day in September, the Class of 1941 entered the School of
Nursing of Abington Nlemorial Hospital. The weather must certainly have
reiiected the moods of some of us, for here we were, entering a new life--'entirely
on our own'-'hoping to make the grade, and to measure up to the traditions and
accomplishments set for us hy previous classes. U
While most of the class are from Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and New
Jersey also have contributed to our ranks. ,L
We have been educated at various high schools, as well as at Temple, Beaver,
Limestone and Catawba colleges. We hope what education we have acquired
will fit us for the rigid course of instruction We are now undertaking.
We extend our congratulations to the Class of ,BQ and our thanks to them- for
the inspiration they have provided for us. We hope to he ahie, in our three years
of training, to do as good a ioh as they have done, and to he ahle to record as
many accomplishments when it is our turn to publish our HSGNAH.', A ,

few persons realize ttle importance of the laboratory' as an invaluable aid and guide
for time physician. Therefore, we propose a tour tbrouglm Abington,s Pathological
Laboratory whose- director is Dr. Jolwn Eiman.
First, we approach the Histology Section, which is concerned with the micro-
scopic examination of tissues. fvvoe be to any student who labels the specimens
Our attention is now drawn to the room directly across time corridor where the
cbemical content of time blood is analyzed. Here we see blonde Miss Jones calcu-

neglects to bring down the 9 A.M. and 4 P.M. blood specimenst,

After Andy passes, we proceed to time rigbt, entering time bematology depart-

numerous requests for blood counts, some ustat,H some routine, all a part of the day's

endeavored in our uprobieu days to teactl us the subject which is his delight, namely
-Bacteriology. He is, as usual, surrounded by his culture mediae, bis slides, and
his specimens of every lcnown strain of bacteria. We shall never forget lVlr. Fowler
because of trisctleery smile, and bis friendliness to us, from our uprobieu days up.
At the far end of the room, time centrifuge wliirls madly, time incubator lceeps
growing bacteria at body temperature, time agitator noisily sbalces raclcs and raclcs

The Abington Basketball team, in blue and gold, with Sally Stewart as
captain, has added another successful season 'to our Basketball history. Despite
occasional defeat, school spirit and all-round good sportsmanship were constantly
displayed. Thursday nights were set aside by members of the team for practice in
Jenkintown High School Gymnasium. The exhilaration of feeling fit, the joy of
competition, the love of the game, wiped out the drudgery of practice sessions.
The A.A.A. Dance, given annually to procure funds for team expenses, was an
outstanding social and financial success this year.
The enthusiastic efforts of the coach, Miss Leslie Perkins, were much appreci-
ated. She left with the girls -much useful knowledge of the game of Basketball.
Nlembers of the squad were:
Doris Bates - Alta Holmes Florence Neidig
Margaret Call Abbie Dale Hopkinson Mary E. Ridgway
Ruth Emmert Constance Moyer Sarah Stewart
Dorothy Harris Edith Murphy . Genevieve Hays, Mgr.
Six of the Girls of the Team leave this year with the Graduating Class. They
are Niisses Stewart, Neidig, Holmes, Hopkinson, Bates, and Emmert.
