Grace was in all her steps
heaven in her eye."
On September 7, 1954, thirty excited, confused girls moved into the apartments
of Simms Hall to begin a career in nursing. We began to experience many frustrating
moments, and also some of the happiest, most memorable moments of our lives.
For the next seven months we were "probies." During that time we attended
Toledo University and had our nursing arts classes here at Flower, with the ever-patient
Miss Rehklau as instructor.
Soon we were properly initiated by our "big sisters." We still remember scrubbing
the sidewalk with toothbrushes in our ridiculous attire. It was a most unforgettable
evening, but we sought our revenge on our "little sisters" a year later.
Then came our first days on the floor. These were both frightening and rewarding
but now, as we think back-Oh, those poor patients!! We began with simple
procedures and, as we became more experienced, we took more responsibility in the
care of our patients. Q
ln April, we traded our collars for fischus, and with pin curls in place, were
"capped" by Miss Rehklau. We wore our caps so proudly and began to feel more
and more like nurses.
As we gained experience in the hospital, we also attended many doctors' lectures.
Each doctor lectured in his own particular field, such as hematology, neurology,
obstetrics, and so forth. These were very interesting as well as educational.
When we became Juniors, we began our experience in the various departments
of the hospital-surgery, obstetrics, diet kitchen, and central supply. Those "first"
days we'll never forget-that first "scrub" in surgery and then, a little later, that first
delivery. The bath demonstrations and formula making classes were excellent teaching
experiences-For whom? The experience gained in these departments will benefit us
later in better understanding the functions of these departments.
There was much hard work and studying during this time, but this was quickly
forgotten when it was time for a party, which inevitably occurred on the night before
ln the summer of l956, we began our affiliations with Toledo State Hospital and
Children's Hospital in Columbus. Our experience in and knowledge of nursing broad-
ened immensely during these months. Most of us enioyed the work-the "kids" were
darling and "psyche" was fascinating, but, did Flower look grand to us at the end
of six months!
With only a few months to go, we were busy making graduation plans, which
included yearbook, uniforms, and pictures.
At last we reached that long-awaited day on which we exchanged our student
uniforms for the white uniforms of the graduate, and added black bands to our caps.
Graduation brought feelings of icy and, at the same time, sorrow at leaving the
wonderful friends we had made in training.
Senior Class Prophecy
The year is 1970 and there is a turmoil on earth as the Jet-Liner, The U.S.S. Bonita Riceta, prepares
for the take-off en route to the famous Hospital of Tomorrow on Mars. This flight, and the ultramodern
interplanetary iet-liner have been furnished by the Director of the lnterplanetary Diagnostic and
Rehabilitation Center for Geriatric Martians.
There is a sudden gush and a terrific commotion as the great iet-propelled, Mars-bound rocket
ship with supersonic velocity tears through the stratosphere with Barbara Holmes at the controls.
"Attention please!" "No cause for alarm"-"We iust missed Jupiter by two light metres" "Roger."
Yup! That's Flash Holmes-girl pilot!
Among the able-bodied crew, we see June Gove as flight nurse. Off in a corner in a dim light
we see Marilyn Karns avidly reading the ship's log.
Among the passengers are several well-known Flower Grads: Jackie Swick Lester, who, while
there, is going to do research for her history professor husband, land incidentally is expecting the
arrival of the ninth football playerl. Carol Haynes Halloway, whose dentist-husband iust discovered
a new tooth-growing medicine, "Sprout-A-Tooth", some of which she is taking along. Jeanette Fackler
Mathews is going for a short visit-and in the cargo hold is a shipment of footstools her husband
manufactured for short Martians.
As the ship comes down with a swish and sudden thud, waiting for them at the Rocketport are
some of their former classmates. At the head of the crowd is the Director and Founder of the new
hospital, Miss Bonita Rice, waving a red flag of welcome! With her are Donna Brown who is head of
the surgical department land as a side line is still coaching love affairslg Phyllis Holmes Irwin, head
nurse in Obstetrics-we're really rehabilitating them! Leonora Stevenson, Martian Chaplain, tells us
that she has iust come from visiting Donna Wellman Smith, who has Martian Sleeping Sickness, lthe
first reported on Mars!-she left earth to get away from African Sleeping Sickness-poor girl.
As we speed towards the hospital in the iet-propelled Mars-Mobile, we exchanged some of the
most recent gossip. Janice Rathbun, is a Public Health nurse on the Indian Reservation. Paula Pollard
is en route to Africa ron her first assignment as a missionary. Also in the mission field, is Doris Porter,
as head of the Mission Board. They tell us that Ruth Weaver Saltzman is "Mrs. Mars of i97O." She
has five little "salt-shakers" to keep her busy.
As we alight from the Mars-Mobile, we are greeted by Marilyn Walter, in a scintillating aura from
the genuine Luster-gem she is wearing indicating her engagement to a genuine Martian. lWonder how
many box-tops he had to save for that?!
As we walk through the hospital, we see Myrna Rau in one of the rehabilitation wards, teaching
the Mars-bug ltranslation-American iitter-bug! to the music of Marvis Elsley, the new geriatric craze.
As we enter the G-U ward, we see Miss Lois Stewart busily occupied, using her great intellectual
capacity in keeping accurate "Intake and Output" for Doctors Jagoon and Manson's two hundred
We are astounded to see the tallest girl on Mars, Bea Wortman Piehl, who is 6'l l". This climate
does wonders for short people. They asked us about the rest of the classmates and we told them that
Peggie Maneval Armbruster is knitting her seventeenth afghan. Betty Rupp has really changed since
graduation! She has gained 150 lbs., and has blond, crew-cut hair. She's a well-known torch singer
in Greenwich Village. Vivian Wilson Bever has the position as Director of the Mental Hygiene and
Correction Center in a Michigan State Mental Hospital. ln her spare time, she is busy raising little
"Bevers." Last, but not least, is Mrs. Elma Hopper Kesling, who at the present time is busily employed
as a Counselor for Student Nurses. She has a lovely family.
After a tour through the hospital and a sight-seeing trip on Mars, we are earth-bound! Wait a
Minute! Hold on to your seats! We are lost in the maze of the Milky Way! Will we ever return to earth?
Who knows-with Flash Holmes, girl pilot, at the controls.
Will all the witnesses please rise?
And raise your right hands, so high-
And swear that what you witness now is iust and true-
Now please sit down.
Your honor, I am most delighted
lNow if I stutter, it's because l'm excitedl
To present the will and last words of a class of brilliant, talented girls-

Our affiliation with Children's
Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, was
both interesting, enioyable, and
educational. As we worked with
students from other nursing
schools, we all made many won-
derful friendships. Babies, diap-
ers, diapers, babies!
Three months at Toledo State
Hospital was a part of our train-
ing always to be remembered. We
were given a new insight on many
nursing problems. Our affiliation
with this institution helped move us
to our goal-graduation!

It was a happy occasion when the seventeen
members of the class of '58 were able to wear
the second stripe on their sleeves. Our Junior
year was very busy as we each gained clinical
experience in surgery, obstetrics, diet kitchen,
and general duty. Also, various classes and field
trips helped to fill our days.
The high spots of the year included welcoming
our "little sisters" in September. Also, there were
swimming, horseback riding, and bowling lessons
sponsored by the Flower Hospital 'Junior Guild.
We certainly enioyed every moment of these
March sixth found the class in the "rec" room
celebrating its "Half-Way" party. Yes, we were
finally over the hump and ready for the last lap
toward our goal-that black band.
By April plans for the Junior-Senior banquet
were well under way. The event was a real
success, and we were very proud to hold the
dance in our new service building. Our money-
making proiects for this occasion included card,
candy, and bake sales as well as collecting sales
Now we are eagerly awaiting our "big sis' "
graduation in September. We will miss them
very much, but we are very happy that each one
has attained her goal! l
Congratulations "big sisters' '!

September 4, 1956, was the day on which
eighteen bewildered girls entered nurses' train-
ing at Flower Hospital. ln a period of three short
months these same frightened girls-after expe-
riencing initiation by the upperclossmen-adiusb
ing to hospital life, and entering the University
of Toledo for the college part of their training-
had changed into young women.
Time passed quickly and soon the trials of the
first semester had faded away to become a part
of the memories that everyone seems to cherish.
Semester number two found the young women
working harder than ever. Capping, which they
thought would never arrive, was no longer far in
the future. They were certain that after this event
and many adiustments which must be made by
freshmen students, their most difficult part of
nurses' training would be a thing of the past.
i 717 YYY,--.,.1n,,i7 15-
"l solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly:
To pass my life in purity . . ."
With these words fifteen student nurses began in unison to repeat the Florence
Nightingale pledge, by which every professional nurse is expected to live.
The symbolic lamps in their hands shone as brightly as the solemn happiness on
their faces. In the assembly of relatives and friends a few tears were shed at this
momentous time in the young women's lives.
The event was the ceremony during which the freshmen students receive their
nurse's caps. This long-awaited moment means more to the student than any other
single episode in their three year course. After having been on probation for approxi-
mately seven months, the women feel a certain sense of achievement when they are
As the fifteen student nurses walked back down the aisle of the church, their
hearts were uplifted in a prayer to God that they would always endeavor to fulfill
the ideals of their pledge.
". . . With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote
myself to the welfare of those committed to my care."

Student Government and Executive Council
Student Government, the governing organization of our school, is composed of the
entire student body. Under the guidance of the Executive Council, consisting of the
officers of and the advisor to Student Government and representatives from each class,
this self-governing body attempts to solve individual and group problems and under-
takes various proiects throughout the course of the year. Among this year's proiects
have been the writing of new By-Laws for Student Government, caroling in the
hospital at Christmas time, a Christmas dance, "The Snow Ball", "Fantasy Land", our
spring concert, and the sending of representatives to the S.N.A.O. and the N.S.N.A.
conventions. The officers of this organization include:
President .............. ,.,,..,,,..,.,.,,.,............. J udith Abele
Vice Presidents ....... ....., D onna Wellman, Peggy Maneval

The student nurse chorus holds weekly re-
hearsals under the direction of Mr. Phillip
Zaugg. Through the year we hold various pro-
grams such as caroling in the hospital at
Christmas and the annual spring concert. It is
a time of relaxation as well as hard work.

Once ca week chapel services are held in
the hospital dining room. Our chapel com-
mittee, which is composed of Lois Schroeder,
chairman, Joyce Scaife, secretary, Reverend
Beittel, our hospital chaplain, Miss Smith,
faculty advisor, Donna Connell, Lois Eddy,
Janice Rathbun, and Leonora Stevenson, ar-
ranges vieekly programs with sermons by
visiting ministers. These weekly services fulfill
a spiritual need, thus helping to see us
through many busy days.
Nurses' Christian Fellowship
Every Tuesday evening the familiar ring of the buzzers at nine o'clock reminds us
that it is time for Nurses' Christian Fellowship. This is a volunteer group of girls who
gather for Bible study and prayer. N. C. F. is a branch of the Inter-Varsity Christian
Fellowship which is so prominent in many universities. Norma Robbins, chairman of
the group, selects a leiader for group discussion each Wveek.
A CHRISTIAN IS
through which Christ thinks,
through which Christ loves,
through which Christ speaks,
through which Christ helps,
through which Christ lives.

This year, under the direction of our co-editors, Nancy Shiley and Marilyn Bost, the obiective of
the Annual Staff has been to make our 1957 yearbook the finest possible. At' times problems have
seemed insurmountable and deadlines, impossible to meet, but such difficulties are now a part of "the
past". Today-which is briefly "the present"-we are proud to present the T957 edition of THE

One world the world becomes
that hears one cry of pain. '
do man-made lines on maps
and man-made barriers fall.
No mother-tongue, nor fatherlcmd
nor racial strain, nor color-line
can stay the hands stretched 'forth
to soothe, to nurse, to heal
at one small cry of pain.

To 0ur Parents
Tonight I graduate, Mom and Dad, and a dream will come true. The
culmination of a iourney through this land of endeavor is about to take
place . . . and my heart is filled with love and gratitude for the guidance
you have both offered along the way.
Your encouragement kept me from following my own impulses when
the road appeared too difficult. Your interest helped me to keep my
"Wagon hitched to that star." You sympathized when l needed it, but
you never let me fall into the throes of self pity. l realize tonight, as l
never have before, how much I've needed you through these years . . .
and how great your role was in the achievement of this success.
I hope you'll be proud of me tonight . . . and proud of yourselves, too.
You both deserve it.
So dear to my heart, Mom and Dad, for so many reasons . . . but
mostly, for iust being wonderful you.
Your loving daughter
The world grows better year by year,
Because. some nurse in her little sphere,
Puts on her apron and grins and sings,
And keeps on doing the same old things.
Taking the temperatures, giving the pills
To remedy mankind's numberless ills,
Feeding the baby, answering the bells
Being polite with a heart that rebels.
Longing for home and all the while
Wearing the same old professional smile,
Blessing the newborn babe's first breath
Closing the eyes that are still in death.
Taking the blame for the doctor's mistakes,
Oh Dear, what a lot of patience it takes,
Going off duty at seven o'clock
Tired, discouraged, and ready to drop.
But called back on special at seven fifteen
With woe in her heart, but it must not be seen,
Morning and evening, and noon and night,
Just doing it over and hoping it's right.
When we lay down our caps and cross the bar
Oh Lord, will you give us just one little star,
To wear in our crowns with our uniforms new,
In that city above, where the Head Nurse is you

There is friendliness in her smile,
