HE first group of Firland buildings was made possible by the untiring efforts
of H. C. Henry, who gave to the City of Seattle the land upon which they
standeand also bore a portion of the cost of erecting the Administration Building.
By virtue of this fact, the Administration Building has been dedicated as a
memorial to his son, Vifalter Horace Henry.

"FIR-LOG,', the fluoroscope of 1932-33,
portraying our institution, beautiful and
home-likeg our family, Wholesome and loyalg
and our activities, serious and frivolous.
Our hope is a prophecy of many more
HE existence of Firland dates back to the day that Horace C. Henry gave
to the King County Anti-Tuberculosis League a beautiful tract of land of
slightly more than thirty-four acres. This tract of land is situated just north
of Seattle and is ideally located for the purpose for which it was intended.
During the latter part of 1910 and first part of 1911 four acres of the land
were cleared and a two-hundred foot well sunk at the expense of Mr. l-lenry with
the aid of the County Commissioners who had voted S4,000.00, and the City of
Seattle, who had voted a 310,000.00 bond issue. Cottages were huilt and Firland
opened its doors as an institution May 2, 1911, with two patients, a superintendent
and one registered nurse. This institution was then known as the Henry
Sanatorium and thevname later changed to Firland Sanatorium.
The buildings consisted of an Administration Building and an lnhrmary. The
Administration Building housed the office and living quarters of the superintendent
and her staff of one nurse. The Inhrmary was a tent housing the two patients,
who were accepted the day Firland opened.
The staff did all the cooking, scrubbed floors, chopped Woofl, kept the hres
going and at night, after a strenuous day's work, retired to their quarters in the
Administration Building and went to hed on the floor, as their bedroom had not,
as yet, been equipped with beds.
A narrow foot path was the only connecting link hetween the institution and
Richmond Highlands. Supplies were purchased in Seattle and brought to Rich-
mond lilighlands on the interurhan. From there they were transported to liirland
via wheelbarrow over this footpath.
These conditions did not last long, however, as more patients were admitted
and it hecame necessary to increase the nursing staff and employ a cook and a

janitor. New buildings were erected so that by the end of the year there were
about twenty buildings and the institution was caring for about thirty patients.
Though construction cost of buildings was kept low, no expense was spared in
providing good bedding, food, medical care and nursing.
In order to give proper care to the large number of people afflicted with
tuberculosis, it became necessary to look elsewhere for aid other than private means.
Accordingly, on October 2, 1911, the Mayor of the City ot Seattle appointed a
Tuberculosis Commission consisting ot tive men. These men were to investigate
existing conditions regarding the prevalence of tuberculosis and to submit a report
and a working plan by which treatment could be secured for those needing it. The
reports and plans were duly submitted and officially adopted. A bond issue for
55125000.00 for the erection of a sanatorium was put before the people in the spring
election of March, 1912, and passed by a large majority. Recommendation was
made to the Council that the City of Seattle take over Firland Sanatorium june 1,
During the year 1913 a building program was started wherein the temporary
cottages were replaced by permanent modern structures. The Administration
Building dedicated as a memorial to Walter C. Henry was completed May 1, 1914.
An addition to this building was completed December, 1920. The Infirmary,
known as Hospital 1 and H, was completed April 10, 1914. The Power House
started in July, 1913, was completed February 6, 1914. About this time the
problem arose as regards the care of the City's contagious diseases and it was
decided that a part of the Firland ground be set aside for an Isolation Hospital.
NVork on this building was completed November 16, 1914. An addition was added
in 1918. About 1920 it became necessary to make different arrangements to care
for the ambulant patients as they were utilizing beds that belonged to those who
needed lied rest. Consequently, Hospital IH was built and completed December
31, 1920. To this hospital, consisting of a service building and two wards, a new
was done and its operation was placed under the Health Department.

building, the VVO111C1'l,S building, was added in 1928. By July, 1921, a nre station
had been built and occupied. Josef House was erected in 1927 to replace a tempo-
rary wooden structure that had been used to house those children who were contact
cases and had tuberculosis.
In addition to all these buildings a network of tunnels was built to connect all
the buildingsg a farm was started, the water system was enlarged upong and a
sanitary sewerage system was installed. Along with its building program Firland
has kept pace in beautifying its grounds.
Considerable credit for the realization and success of Firland is due to Horace
C. Henry, who donated land and money, to Dr. gl. E. Crichton, Seattle's first
Commissioner of Health. under whose administration Firland first began opera-
tions, and to Dr. R. M. Stith and Edna L. Robinson for their capable management
in carrying out all plans. Today, Firland with the sp.rit of service for which it
stands is an outstanding institution.
TG A NURSE
There is no truer measure of success
Than a life of cheerful, friendly helpfulness-
No greater honor than to render aid
W7 ith heart devoted, fp-atient, unafraid!
To heal the sick, to care for those in need.
To observe the ethics of a noble creed,
ls your contribution to all human good
And the glory of heroic womanhood.

TULIPS AND BRIDAL WREATH
V V V
QDedicated to the Nurses at Firlandj
I am a tulip. My stem is tall.
I am the brightest red of all
The flowers that grow by the garden wallg
I am queenly. I
Standing alone in regal pride,
Flaunting my leaves, long and wide,
I scorn the flowers that grow by my side,
Beautiful Bridal W1'eatl1 are we,
Wfhite and modest as we can be,
Feathery sprays of symmetry,
Place a dozen or so in a vase
Each one has its artistic place,
Every other flower we grace
By our blending.
In a wonderful garden that I know
Girls are lovely flowers that grow,
Tulips, some, who live for show
Nurses are the graceful sprays
Of Bridal VVreathg all their days
A perfume of service. They know the ways

EN years ago I little thought that l943 would find me on board a palatial yacht
in mid-Pacific bound for the Samoan Islands. I am traveling companion and
social secretary for Miss Frances McPherson, our one time Firland colleague and
beloved night superintendent for many years.
During that time, it will be recalled, her life seemed to us very quiet and
uneventful. Had we known of the thrilling adventures and wide travels she then
enjoyed, all in the realm of fancy, we would probably have been just as astonished
as was Miss McPherson herself, when, in 1934, a long lost and distant cousin
died and the hand of fate unsuspectingly dropped into her lap a fortune of close tc a
BILLION DULLARS and with it came a chance to make all those dreams come
true. So well has she planned the trail that for the past ten years our travels by
land, sea, and air have encompassed only the most interesting places and the most
During the past year we have been doing some extensive research work. The
Firland Mother wanted to know what had become of her children. Wfell, we have
found them all, and each has gladly consented to a published account of her where-
abouts and occupation. You will be proud of them all, too, although perhaps
somewhat surprised to discover so many loop-holes in the fence around the "Pie d
of Public Health Nursing."
I will try to take you all with us to meet the Firland nurses as we found
them, and if this account jumps around the world too much, you 1TILlSl rememl er
that we are writing of no ordinary nurses, but of women who have always dared
to leave home when destiny commanded.
VVe were in London and had been invited to a gathering of some of the
literati and leading scientists and pathologists of Europe to honor Mrs. Ada
Babcock, former Firland laboratory technician and now world famous for her
discoveries and book on the subject of the "Further Use of Cold-Serum" in the
treatment of a great number of contagious and infectious diseases, from whooping-
cough to leprosy. Mrs. Babcock travels with her son as pilot in their private plane
and thinks nothing of a hop across the Pacihc or Atlantic.
Here my account will also hop the Atlantic and back to Seattle to hnd Rose
Paschich of Isolation memory now married very happily to a wealthy merchant.
Always verv fond of chillren, Rose is now blessed with ten of her own, live of
each. At the time of our visit, although perfectly contained, she was somewhat
preoccupied, and no wonder! Five of the children were having a mild attack of
diphtheria, while the other five had scarlet fever. All, however, were almost cured
and Rose was justifiably proud that there had been "NO CROSS INI7IiCTlONS."
Back to Europe and to Paris, where the Consul. knowing that we were
Americans, was most impatient to acquaint us with the toast of the town, Comtesse
Helen Montesquieu de Terray. whom we found to be no other than our Helen
Thorle, Virland dietitian. Our pleasure was doubly enhanced when she told us
that Alice Ruger was her house-guest. and she urged us to remain for the week-
end. "Alice," Helen said, "is adored by my three children, but she, herself, though
she has had many marvelous offers, is still single and as timid as ever." just then
Alice walked in with a jig-saw puzzle under her arm for the chil lren. To our
question she replied that it was one she had spent many hours working at Firland
and which she has kept through all these years. Incidentally she confided that
while there were jig-saw puzzles to be worked she had no time for marriage.
In New York we had gone to the leading opera house to witness the debut
of a ballet dancer who gave promise of being a second Pavlowa. The lights blazed
one name, "Prusaki." As we sat in our box looking over the program, although
the name seemed somewhat familiar, we were ill prepared for the shock which
befell us when the fairy-like figure in tights and ruffles floated lightly across the
stage and poised daintily on two toes directly in front of us and we recognized-
Katherine Prusak. It was then we recalled that while at Firland she had confided
in us her smouldering ambition to be a classic dancer, but she seemed to figure in
a dream as she floated through her own interpretation of "The Wfind in the Trees."
As for Lena Buess what could be more natural than to find her a very success-
ful kindergarten teacher in Topeka, Kansas. The children seemed to learn so easily
and made the most intricate things. Even the teacher looked so happy and interested.
Caroline Tamborini is another who has had the courage and tenacity of
purpose to follow the urge of her greatest talent. She is now an artist with a
studio in- Seattle and is fast becoming famous. So greatly has her influence been
felt that Seattle is now the leading art center of the west. We found one secret
of the popularity of her paintings when we visited the artist while she was at work
on a painting which was to depict the f'Spirit of Social Wfelfare in Seattle" and
found no other than Lucille Bennett, posing as model for the heroic figure.
The Samoan Islands boasted of a most modern and well equipped hospital.
Always eager to see the best in that line, we hastened to visit it. Somehow, as we
saw everything in such perfect order and such serenity pervading the atmosphere
of the place, we were not a bit surprised to be greeted as charmingly as of old by
the Karlsson sisters, Anna and Eva.
Probably you have heard of the new Boys' Reformatory in Texas? It is built
on Marie Laubach's Texas ranch. The people of the county built it at Maries
instigation and she is the Superintendent. Although it is a small institution and
comparatively new, it is already famous for the miraculous transformations seen
in the characters of so-called delinquents who have graduated there. The boys
never forget Marie, but seem to consiler her their second mother and the institution
their second home. Marie was glad to explain her "method of approachf' It
consists simply in loving them enough and feeding them enough.
In Louisville, Kentucky, we visited our former Mildred Rountree. in her beauti-
ful Colonial home. She is now married to a childhood sweetheart and instead of the
solitude-loving Mildred we once knew, we found her a leader in the social whirl. So
you see appearances are deceivingg we cannot know the under-currents. She has
a lovely little girl of eight with long golden curls and a talent for the violin.
Mary Kaiser is still in Seattle and well it is for that city that she consented to
stay. Une of the big hospitals might have looke'l the world over and not have
found a nurse more perfectly adapted to solve its lproblems of management. We
we Wfidhiliil 9

found everyone there ready to sing her praises and all those who had known the
hospital in its earlier days full of gratitude for the superintendent who was able
to produce order out of chaos.
I know you will be glad to hear that Amye McKee has not only overcome her
fear of dogs but has gone to the other extreme and is now the celebrated Lady Lion
Tamer of Barnum QQ Bailey. You should have seen,Mackey standing fearlessly in
the cage fshe even scorns to use a whipj. Three famished and enraged lions
bounded in with a roar and straight for Mackey. They caught one compelling
glance of her eye and straightway wilted. QThe crowd yelled their approvalj You
can imagine our sensations-we -who had beheld this same lady frozen in her tracks
at the mere appearance in her path of a playful puppyj
Alverta Mills is sticking with her profession and is very much in the fpublic
eye. The Lindberghs had decided to take their baby with them hereafter when they
Hy, so advertised for a good nurse, one level-headed and not afraid to Hy. Gut of
150 applicants Alverta landed the job and has been where she has always enjoyed
being, i. e., up in the air, ever since.
Marie Eichacker is in a rather unusual business. She has patented and
perfected a new type of reducing corset, has a little factory in Chicago and agents
all over the United States. Marie's full-length silhouette on the trademark tag
of each garment seems to be the secret of its rapid sale.
Kathleen Elliott's old hobby has completely taken possession of her, but
happily she is in a position to satisfy her obsession. lNe found her in Egypt with
Winifred McFarlane and the latter's husband, an eminent archaeologist. Their
travels take them to many scenes of ancient history where in all the excavations
Kathleen is amazingly acute at discovering human skulls or a minute portion of
one, ascertaining at a glance just where it Fits in, so that she is quite a valuable

Amelia Hall is the first woman to complete a tour of the world on a bicycle.
VVe encountered Millie in a cloud of dust along an unfrequented road in Arabia
last year. It was a very hot day, but under the grime and sweat of miles of cycling
Millie's face wore a happy smile as she fell off her bike in her surprise at seeing us.
We found Norma Hickey on the bench of a Los Angeles court room. lfVho
would have thought that this lady in her impressive cap and gown could have been
in Firland days one of our best candidates for an ideal future wife and homemaker.
But fate had different plans and now our little Norma is a judge in a Domestic
Relations Court, teaching other people what she has always known instinctively
herself about the rules for domestic bliss, and trying to patch up ship-wrecked
lfVe met Elsa Thomsen on the Seattle wharf where she was superintending the
loading of her supply boat. VVe accepted with delight her invitation to sail with
her to visit her island. Yes, Tommy owns a beautiful little island of about 100
acres in Puget Sound where she is happily engaged in raising chickens and chil-
dren. She has three adopted children and says that if the chickens lay as well next
year she will adopt three more. Lucky children, with Tommy for a mother and a
little Garden of Eden all their own to grow up in.
The fame of Eo Priem is well known to all of you as I know you do not miss

obscure member of the bread line.

places of interest to visit, including some of the most exclusive houses of enter-

combination of beer garden and cabaret. One evening we chanced to visit this
and soon discovered the cause of its popularity when we found our former col-
league-Edna Brandt and Delanto Ludington officiating at the bar. The delightful
and gracious manner in which they served the guests seemed to permeate the place
with an old-world charm. However, we decided that this place had almost more
than its share of Firland talent when we found the star entertainer to be none other
than Myrtle Lystad. She gave several solo dances and led a chorus of beauties
through some very intricate steps.

Monday, December 19th, was a memorable occasion to the Firland staff. The
animal Christmas party was in progress in the large reception room. A beautifully
decorated Christmas tree shed the true spirit of Christmas over a most happy
occasion, while Santa Claus himself was superb, in spite of his too obvious diffi-
culty 'in getting around. His humorous antics kept his guests in a constant uproar
and his characteristic gladness and cheer was reflected generously in the happy
throng that enjoyed his hospitality. He had gifts for everyone, including, strangely
enough, some gifts that had been received before. But Santa Claus is a mysterious
felow and a resourceful one so we will not question his integrity here. On account
of the depression his gifts were economical but none the less eagerly received and
very enthusiastically applauded by one and all. The evenings pleasure included
some vocal numbers and readings by staff members, dancing, and refreshments.

ACH member of the Nursing Staff at Firland, in addition to the instruction
given at the Sanatorium in Tuberculosis Nursing, has been given an opportunity
to affiliate themselves with the Department of Nursing Education of the University
of Vlfashington, which offers three months of supervised held work or "visiting
nursing in the home,', along with the required academic studies toward a Public
Health Certihcate. The post-graduate course in Tuberculosis Nursing at the
Sanatoria also gives one month of visiting nursing under the direct supervision of
the Tuberculosis Division of the Department of Health in Seattle.
These four months of specialized practical training in the field give our nurses
a fine background in Tuberculosis Nursing as well as in practically all the other
phases of public health nursing, its needs and requirements, its problems and
solutions, supplementary to molding out the nursels viewpoint and giving her a
better survey of true service.

confronted and performed in this period of visiting nursing or "field work" as we
call it.s Vtfere I to go into each field separately and discourse upon it at length, it
would require many volumes to completely cover the subject so as to do perfect
justice to it.
Six weeks of the four months of home nursing in the field is spent with the
Community Nursing Service in the city of Seattle under the direct supervision of
the Community Nursing Staff. VVhile under their guidance, we familiarize our-
selves with the "bag techniquei' While making our daily rounds of bedside nursing

ciples involved in caring for the sick in the home, as well as the principles involved
in serving the public as a public health nurse or health teacherg we learn the
methods and values in reporting and recording cases of a medical, social. or
economic nature. It is during our sojourn in this division that we utilize some of
our academic knowledge as health teachers, in instructing the members of the
family in the bedside care of their sick, in advising them, or in assisting them, or
in referring them to the proper agency for solving their problems. It is in the
Community Nursing Service that we hear and learn a great deal about the organi-
zation of such a service, of how, when, and why it is managed, and the value of
such a service to the community. 'VVe learn about Industrial Nursing. VVe learn
about Group Insurance and their ipolicies in dealing with their clients in sickness.

active interests, great surprises, and best of all it is a great service.
One of the four months is spent either in the schools of Seattle doing school
nursing, or in the county doing county nursing. If in the schools, the nurse is
under the constant supervision and guidance of one of the Seattle school nurses,
of the Seattle Board of Education. Wihile in this division she is given the oppor-
tunity to observe a health survey of an entire school under the direct supervision

of the school iphysician, a specialist, with the assistance of the school nurse, is given
an opportunity to assist with the health examinations of school chlidren in checking
physical defects and in checking up on contagious diseases. She is given an oppor-
tunity in assisting with the immunization of children as a preventative procedure
in the control of these contagious diseases. She is granted the privilege of visiting
the homes of children in checking up on illnesses in the home among children of
school age as a measure toward the prevention of epidemics in the school or even
the community. She also visits the parents in regard to physical defects of the
child, particularly if these defects are a handicap to his well-being and intellectual
development. She also is given the opportunity again in exercising her acedemic
knowledge in giving health talks and series of lectures to not only the school room.
but also to women, girls, and boys' clubs in the community. Qftentimes she is
called upon to conduct Home Nursing and First Aid Classes in these group gather-
ings. It is in this division that the nurse co-operates with the teacher in regard to
the Hygiene and Sanitation, the Lighting, Ventilation, and Plumbing in the school,
for the well-being of the child, as well as assisting the teacher with problems
of children who often have a physical defect as a causative factor in their proble-
matic handicap. The nurse finds this period of school nursing most interesting and
instructive. As a health teacher she visualizes the need of better health supervision
of our children in the home and in the school room, particularly during their early
years, for she realizes more than ever the child is the father of man.
From here we shall take a flying trip to the nurse who spends a month in the
county doing county nursing. Wie shall get only a birds eye view of the situation
since the nurse is called upon for innumerable duties of variegated nature while
she is serving the public in this peculiar capacity, as a county nurse. VVe find the
work in this division full of interesting instructive and productive factors. Here.
as in her previous field work, she is under the constant supervision of the official
county nurse, directly responsible either to the County Health Officer or to the
Board of County Commissioners, depending upon the policy of that particular
county. Wlhile in this phase of the work our little cadet has the opportunity of
assisting with the organization of health clinics, as well as of conducting them.
Today we find her here, there, everywhere, at a baby clinic here, interviewing
there, weighing over there, confering with the doctor. Tomorrow we see her at a
pre-school or pre-natal clinic. The next day it will be at a chest clinic, or perhaps
we get a glimpse of her assisting with a "health survey" in one of the county
schools, or perhaps we find her lining up the kiddies for immunization tests by the
doctor. After these numerous clinics we learn that she is to make home visits on
the patients who attended the clinics, and during an afternoon we might percliau e
even to walk in upon our little cadet giving a health talk to the school children, or
even to their parents at some Mothers Day program. That evening we find her
giving a demonstration in Home Nursing, lnfant Care or First Aid at the com-
munity town hall, ivhere the citizens of the county have met to confer for some
civic purpose. Late that night we find her at the bedside of one who has pneu-
monia. giving comfort and care to the loved one of those who are standing about
helpless, and weary and worn. ln the early hours of morning we get a glimpse of
her tearing down the road in her Dobbin, to assist the doctor with a new-born many
miles from a hospital. The next day well find her at the office recording, report-
ing and filing cases by mail, by phone, by wire,-to this doctor, to that doctor, to
the County Social XVelfare Department, or to some county or state official, depend-
ing upon the nature of the case. Wfhile here, we get a glimpse of her interviewing
a young mother regarding her new baby. There, we see her interviewing an elderly
gent who wishes transportation to his home in the southern part of the state, or
even to California, and over there, another man waiting his turn in requesting
much needed employment because of his ever-increasing family. Over there, in
waiting, a mother with her crippled son anxiously waiting the returns of a con-
ference regarding orthopedic aid. Then a call by phone requests a placing of a
post-Sanatoria arrested tuberculosis patient in a desirable home until her family
find the means to take her to their home. These and many other problems of
similar nature confront this pal of public service. That evening we learn that our
little cadet has, by special invitation been admittedito the District Medical Society
Conference, as a co-worker for the good of the cause. Tomorrow there is to be
a meeting of the County Commissioners, at which she is to report to them this,
that, or the other civic problem which bears heavily upon the health or finance of
the citizens of the county. The following week we note she is listed to speak at the
Business Men's Club, the Garden Club, and this followed by a luncheon date with
state officials who are surveying the health conditions of the county. Wfe note, too,
that the District Public Health nurses are holding a conference of note and which
we learn our cadet is planning to attend. As we Wave good-bye to our little cadet
nurse, our motor speeds rapidly over mountain and valley as we leave the county.
In leaving we are more than ever impressed upon the grave responsibility that is
given our public health nurses as health teachers and public servants. NVe realize
more than ever the need of thoroughly trained, capable, broad-minded, and far-
visioned young women with the idea of true service at heart and a pure mind to
serve all who need her care. In dealing with the numerous medical duties and
problems she must also be capable and ,prepared in carrying and meeting civic,
economic, as well as social disturbances that arise along her journey of service to
the citizens of the county she serves.
From here we will step into the Child Wfelfare Division of the Department
of Health of Seattle. Needless to say, but over there we notice our little cadet, all
starched up in her dainty blue uniform, all in readiness for two more weeks of
very fascinating, instructive and productive field work. Here, as in the previous
branches of the required service she is under constant supervision of the Child
Wfelfare Director and her fine staff of assistants. NVhile in this department our
little cadet again has the opportunity of putting her previous academic and prac-
tical knowledge into effect and again learn by observing and doing. Here she
adds to her knowledge of organizing and managing baby clinics, but this time it
is in a large city. Here she assists with the weighing, measuring, and recording
of each case, assists with the eye, ear, nose and throat examination by a specialized
Specialist. She brings infants and small children to and from the clinic wherever
illness is in the home and no one else about to do so. Here she has the opportunity
of acting as a health teacher in the homes of these children in such subjects as
daily infant routine, in nutrition and the cookery of certain baby foods. along with
instruction to the mother regarding the doctor's orders. Here she also distributes
health literature and advises the mother upon good modern reading regarding

"everything that's new in baby care," or most likely everything modern not so good
regarding this baby care unless under the direction of their family physician.
Beside baby clinics and more balty clinics, our little cadet informs us that she

day would be spent observing the technique of the Quarantine Division, followed
up by assisting at a Dental Clinic, and later at the General Clinic, with an oppor-
tunity of visiting the Social Service Department of the Department of lflealth in
Seattle. Our little cadet also will have the opportunity to familiarize herself with
the Confidential Exchange which often has proven itself an asset, economically
and professionally. and as a saver of time and energy when dealing with the various
social, economic and medical family problems which are encountered during the
course of her daily routine. As we live over these moments of whirling activity-
you, too, have found it most interesting and instructive and we hope productive
when you, too, take on the little blue uniform and stroll down the avenues of Post
Graduate work in the knowledge of Public Health Nursing Service.
Before we Hy on to our hnal held of service, T wish to tell you that along with
the foregoing nursing and professional procedure in this field work, excursions
were taken once or twice a week to various organizations and institutions of interest
to Public Health Nurses. Each excursion is supervised and accompanied by
lectures and demonstrations of great value to each cadet nurse, who dreams of the
day when she, too, will utilize her knowledge in the term called service. M ay we
wish her well along her rugged path and with sympathy and loving kindness let
us welcome her.
lVe shall take our Final Hight into the held of the Tuberculosis Clinic. As we
are ushered into the room we see many familiar and smiling faces which greet us
with a memory of good old Sanatoria days when a steady, regular, daily routine
proved not only a faithful agent of health, but also a helpful one. Today these
same 'health graduates' were here for a recheck in a physical examination after a
release of some six to eighteen months previous to this time, from a supposedly
fatal bed. As we glance up we see coming in the door no other than our little
smiling cadet. XYe learn that she has just come from the home of a tuberculosis
mother who wished to make preparation for an entry into the Sanatoria, so as to
protect her family, and her friends, as well as to learn to live with tuberculosis so
that she may continue to serve her family, her friends, and her community. We
note that our cadet has four small children with her, whom she has brought to the
clinic for a recheck physical examination and for a Mantoux reading. She tells us
how she lost her way in search of these little ones, and of how complicated the
streets seemed upon her lirst visit to the home, and of how difhcult it was to see
the house. somewhere beyond a huge bluff or cliff. and that after she got that lar

happy. That afternoon our cadet was posted to visit the homes of several "health
grads" or "post-Sanatoria patients," who have post-graduated in the art of living
with tuberculosis for something like five to twelve years previous to this time.
Some of these were anxious to learn more about f'what's new in tuberculosisf' so
have sent for requests on new literature available, others wished to know when to
come for another physical examination, and still others wishes to be reassured of
their well-being regarding more strenuous employment, while others wished a visit
from the "clinic nurse," so as to be reassured of their understanding the methods
of daily post-Sanatoria routine.
As we drop in to the Tuberculosis Division on a regular clinic day, we find
dozens of patients waiting their turn in having their temperatures, pulses, and
weights re-checked by the clinic nurses. Some of these were waiting their turn for
physical examination, or for a conference with the medical director or with one
of the medical staff doctors, or waiting for a chest X-ray, for a sputum report, or
for a pneumothorax, or for a history of past illnesses to be written, or perhaps
waiting to report a suspicious case in the family, or that of some neighbor who
was anxious. In the far corner, we see the clinic director conferring with a per-
spective tuberculosis patient who wishes Sanatoria care. Tn days, out of clinic
days, the held nurse calls upon the homes of these same patients, checks upon their
health conditions in the home, reads their temperature, records their pulse, and
advises them as to the disposal of the sputum g advises them as to ,proper ventilation,
and proper nutrition, rest, and exercise, or she may prepare them. for Sanatoria
care. Though tuberculosis visiting nursing may appear dry and uninteresting to
the majority of outsiders, those who know its duties, understand them, and fathom
the intrinsic complications arising from a tuberculosis infection, and knowing that
when it is discovered and checked in the earliest stages of development, there
is a fine opportunity of a good recovery and a freedom from the active disease,
providing, of course, that a proper treatment is executed with a knowledge of their
own condition, along with a good dose of self-discipline, and guidance by their
physician. VVe hnd the supposedly unfortunate become most fortunate once he
learns how to live with his condition, thereby enjoying true happiness in living.
He has been forced to take time to study himself, along with the finer points of
interest in this thing called life: therefore this phase of the required service proves
itself one of the most worth-while of all the field work we have experienced.
Our four months of visiting nurse or "held work" is over. As we glance
u:pon the paramount factors of interest during our sojourn in this required service
toward a Public Health Certificate we feel, and we know, that the energy, the time,
the interests, expended have all been worth while, instructively and pro-
ductively. As we look upon the vista of years to come we know that humanity will
be the better for having served and been served by those who have gone forth
with the spirit of true service at heart and with a pure mind to serve. This has

THE ISOLATION DEPARTMENT
HE Isolation Department was established at Firland in 1916 after the closing
of the old Isolation Hospital in Seattle.
This division is under the control of the City Health Department, Quarantine
Division, and all admissions are made from the City Quarantine Division direct
to Firland Ofhce.
These patients remain for a period of four to six weeks, depending upon the
severity of the disease, and then released by a City Health Physician assigned to
Contagious cases are grouped according to the disease and nurses assigned to
This department has a well-equipped surgery to handle any emergency opera-

each meal in a large kitchen equipped for this purpose. All the contaminated
articles Qnot of usej and waste are burned in the inciiierator.
UR X-ray Department was established in its present location in 1928. It has
since that time taken care of all the X-ray and liuoroscopic work for the entire
In building the X-ray Department every precaution was used to make it mod-
ern, safe, and easily accessible. It is built partly underground-located in the
tunnel half way between the Administration Building, Josef House and the Main
Hospital. It is fitted with leaded walls for the protection of the operator and
patients. It is operated by an expert roentenologist who takes all the pictures.
The electricity for this department is conducted in on a separate line from the
rest of the institution. ' This makes it possible for the operator to always have a
known uniform electric power with which to carry on his work. It is conducted
in on a 210 voltage wire and goes through the silent VVappler transformer where the
power is stepped up to the necessary voltage for roentenology work.
The VVappler X-ray and Huoroscopic appliances are used entirely. The Muller
tube is used for both horizontal and vertical X-ray work, while the Radiator type
of tube is used in the lluoroscopic work.
All in all, our X-ray Department is one of the most important, as well as one
ofthe most interesting divisions in the diagnostic routine in noting the progress of
the tuberculous condition of all patients.

RECIPE FOR MAKING A GOOD NURSE
Mix together equal parts of pluck, good health, and well-balanced sympathyg
stiffen with energy, and soften with the milk of human kindness. Use a first-class
training school as the mixer.
Add the sweetness of a smile, a little ginger, and generous amounts of:
W'ith plenty of patience.
Pour into the mould of womanhood, time with enthusiasm, finish with a cap,
and garnish with ambition. The sauce of experience is always an improvement to
this recipe, which if followed closely, should be very successful and exceedingly
P. H. N., 1930. -EXCHANGE.
Lors OF TIME
Lots of time for lots of things,
Though it's said that time has wings,
There is always time to Hnd
VVays of being sweet and kind.
Time to send the trowns away,
Time a gentle word to say,
Time for helpfulness, and time
To assist the weak to climb.
Time to give a little Hower,
Time for friendship any hour,
But there is no time to spare
For unkindness anywhere.

ODE TO FIRLAND
NEVER before saw a city like this,
Made up of a family so great
W'here everyones happy, friendly, it seems
There could not be room for old hate.
I marvelled at first at the interest each had
In his work or his hours of playg
And the utter content of the great multitude
As it reached the close of the day.
And I saw all the patients so eager, it seemed,
To hasten recoveryg and then,
Each member was wishing the greatest of luck
Wfould come to his fellow men.
It's a thing of rare beauty to someone like me
just to learn the great lesson its taught,
Of patience, endurance and good fellowship
And the satisfied feeling its brought.
I was asked to comment from a nurse's viewpoint
And there's only this I can say,
I will never forget in the years that will come
The things I have learned here today. I

TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR FIRLAND NURSES
:E :E i
Thou shalt not be late to meals, for thou will not be fed but will hunger and
Thou shalt not eat food in thy room, lest thy dwelling place become infested
with cockroaches, rodents, and numerous varmints and thou perhaps be com-
pelled to vacate in their honor.
Thou shalt not play thy radio after lO:OO P. M. lest thy neighbors rise up in
wrath and exterminate thee.
Honor thy charge nurses and doctors that misfortune settle not upon thee.
Convert not thy room into a Chinese laundry, for visitors enjoy not dripping
hose and lingerie endangering their make-up and marcels.
Eight hours a day shalt thou labor, and in thy leisure thou shalt study diligently
lest thy teachers question thine I.
Beseech not constantly thy charge nurse for special days off lest she become
weary of thine importunities and allot thee class day every week.
Thou shalt not skip classes, for unless thou hast the cunning of a fox and the
guile of a serpent, thine excuses will be scattered to the four Winds and thou
will find thyself traveling the broad highway.
Thou shalt not return home after midnight by subterranean tunnels and
devious paths, but shall knock at the front portal and plead admittance.
Covet not thy 'neighbor's dates, nor Maries place at the table, nor even her
second piece of pie.

TEN DEMANDMENTS FOR FIRLAND NURSES
3: :E :E
TEN SUGGESTED RULES OF CONDUCT FOR EMPLOYEES,
BY A "MOSES" OF MODERN BUSINESS
Don't lie, it wastes my time and yours. I am sure to catch you in the end, and
that is the wrong end.
Hfatch your work and not the clock. A good day's work makes a long day
shorty and a poor day's work makes my face long.
Give me more than I expect, and I will give you more than you expect. I can
afford to increase your pay if you increase my prohts.
You owe so much to yourself that you cannot afford to owe anyone else.
Dishonesty is never an accident.
Mind your own business and in time you'll have a business of your own to
Don't do anything here which hurts your self-respect. An employee who is
willing to steal for me is willing to steal from me.
It is none of my business what you do at night. But if dissipation affects what
you do the next day, and you do half as much as I demand, you'll last half as
long as you hoped. R
Don't tell what I like to hear, but what I ought to hear.
Donlt kick if I kick. If your're worth correcting, you're worth keeping.
