Jforetoarb " Thus far our fortune keeps an upward course. . hid ,r are ( raced isitli wreaths oj victory, " A new leaf, a new era. Another step into the march of life. S we prepare to take upon ourselves the mantle that awaits us, as we as- sume the tasks we ' ve chosen in the world, our thoughts turn hack in pleas- ure upon the years we ' ve striven for this clay and in the striving accom- plished our feat. Seeing now the beauty that can lie ahead it we hut seek it. facing the com- ing day with confidence horn afresh, feeling the duty that confronts us if we prove true to the training showered upon us. we pause and call to mind the efforts of our friends to make us worthy of the profession to he ours. We voice our gratitude to everyone who shared in bringing knowledge and appreciation of responsibilities that face us. We want to assure them that their interest and efforts have not been in vain, and ti impress upon them that their example has shown us the glory ol sell -sacrifice and toil. It we have learned the lesson, then the world shall reap the profit. It we can cany on. the praise must go to those who gave us strength. And in the last accounting, when our goddess shall " call our merits forth and give each deed the exact intrinsic worth. " if we win credit we shall pass it mi to those we now are leaving. Then. ton. we have a duty to ourselves, the urge to keep alive the memories of our days together. What greater pleasure can there be than in the thoughts of joys and tribulations shared with friends? Division ot our class and separations ol its members into the various paths that lead into the future may hold pangs; but oft repeated recollection can bring solace. The dreams of happy clays and years with comrades help dispel the cloud.-, that loom large. Our hopes and tastes, our fears and longings have been mutual. Shared as they were, they brought us much delight that we shall miss. The interest of our classmates in our joys and sorrows have welded us together so we soon shall feel the loss. Such is the mission of this volume. In the hope that it conveys to all who helped us onward to fresh wreaths of victory, our gratitude, preserved forever in our hearts, it is published. If it can carry to them our appreciation of their kindness and often displayed interest and consideration, the class shall rejoice. And if it can serve in the far future to bring to our own minds again the friendship, the cordiality, the love we have found in our comrades here, and warm our hearts again through dreams of pleasures of the past, it shall lie worth while.

The members of the Class of 192? have maintained the traditions of the Army School of Nursing in a handsome man- ner, and I wish for them the success and happiness which their work indicates should be theirs.

Dean, Army School of Nnrsiny - 1925 - Aea • BE message thai I have for the Class of 1925 is. first, to congratulate them on the successful accomplishment of the aim that each member had in mind when entering the Army School, and. second, to urge upon them , remember as thev go out into the busy world where so much emphasis is apt to he placed on the commercial aspects of any profession that success will depend upon keeping constantly in mind the traditional voluntary service phase of ours, the ' •greatest profession. " By " voluntary service " is meant not only the giving of time, energy and work without just, adequate payment in return hut continual thought of the spiritual element permeating all these, hut infinitely above them. May each of vou find from the very first year of your professional life that the true reward of a nurse ' s life is to see the sick recover, the weak made strong, little children saved from suffering, and to feel that yours have been the Divinely helped bands and brain used to conserve and restore the priceless gift of health. Julia C. Stimson. Major. Superintendent. Army Xursc Corps. Dean. Army School of Nursing, 1925- T eleven Mi £ ae n. Miss Annie W. Goodrich I ' ftin. Vale School of Xursitii . First Dean of Army School of Nursinu - 1925 - aen WISH that my little message of greeting and sincere congratulation could in any measure express to you the pleasure and inspiration I derived HU from my recent vi sit to the Army School of Nursing. 1 returned to mv own task profoundly impressed with the rich and unusual opportunities afforded the honor students, opportunities that 1 helieve are rarelv if ever excelled in this or other countries. To an already richly stored memory my visit adds a series of pictures that 1 hope will long remain as vivid as they are today. The splendid and highly equipped buildings in their heautiful environment that have come so rapidly and effectively into existence under General Glennan, to whom we as nurses are so indebted for the standards of nursing education and technique that obtain in the Army School; your Dean whose personal gifts and scholastic attainments enable her to represent you wi.h such grace and distinction on every occasion and who through the broad policies of the Surgeon General i enabled to continually extend the influence ami reputation of the Army Nurse Corps and School. Such leaders would inevitably gather together a notable group of administrators and teachers and of such a group is one of the most important and interesting pictures of mv series ; or is perhaps the most important, the great group of radiantlv eager faces, the student body, some with the alertness of the just beginning, some tranquil in the steadying midway, some touched with the sadness of the approaching eixl of student days? No. there can be no comparison, each has its place, becoming a composite, as it were, of unified and high purpose which leaves no doubt that, not less in times of peace than of war. you and your comrades will serve our country. all countries, well. .May your strength and courage and your joy in life never fail you.

Cfje history of ttje Class of 1925 " I In ' time has come tin- Walrus said, to talk of many things; Of ships at sea and scaling fiw.r and cabbages and kings. ' ' X a windy day in March, 1 ( 22. thirteen tearless pioneer student nurses landed at the Union Station in Washington and made the perilous journey in taxicahs to the place called Walter Reed. Here thev took counsel together and decided that this was indeed an ideal site upon which to establish the Class of 1925. Present!} ' they saw approaching the Chiefs of the Tribe of Graduates, who welcomed them to this beautiful country and led them to the Adjutant ' s tent to take the oath of office. Very soon they found that Walter Reed was inhabited by other trilies. very like themselves, known as the Class of 192.1 and the Class of 1924, who came forward and greeted them with friendly gestures. The days that followed were full of trials and tribulations and the little band would have been devoured by the monsters " Anatomy. " " Drugs, " and his twin brother. " Solutions. " and by the fiendish one called " Homesickness, " had it not been for the wise counsel of the faculty and the keen swords of Encourage- ment and Suggestions with which the tribes of ' 23 and ' 24 helped them to slay the beasts. Though there were many hardships there were also many pleasures. 1 the greatest of which was the Capping Festival. The members of the other tribes in blue assembled and after a simple ceremony placed upon the fact-filled heads of the newcomers, starchy white caps — their svmlwl of service. Through the summer they washed bedside tables, took temperatures, rubbed weary backs and adjusted electric fans to " high " so creditably that their fame went out through the country, reaching the ears of a tribe of students in the plait- known as Fort Mcllenry. So pleased were they with what they heard that they hastened to join the Class of 1925. bringing with them a noble counsellor for the faculty, whose name they came to love — Miss Tobin. Nor were these the onlv ears reached. Thirty others left home and friends to enlist in the great cause and landed at the same Union Station on the fourth day of ctober. These novices were in turn capped and joined the first settlers in their work. Great happiness reigned in the camp of ' 25. Three thousand miles away the sisters of the Reedites, moved bv the same desire to l e of service, had banded together and made a settlement just in sight of the Golden Gate, where they applied themselves to learning the gentle art of nursing. Though they were very happy in their work, they were stirred witli longings to see the world and their sisters in service, so they consulted with the faculty, who in turn consulted with the Big Chief. Arrangements were made and finally the day came when they were to turn their backs on dear familiar scenes to go out into the world. ( Gentle reader, if you would follow them on their trip to Walter Reed and see the world with them as they came, kindly turn to the page entitled. " The Big Trip, " in this volume.) - 1925 - forty P e .Q.a Great was the rejoicing when the news went up on the bulletin hoard that the Lettermanites had landed and were speeding to Washington, soon to he rechristeiied " Reedites. " The Class of 1925 was now complete; hut alas, just as thev were beginning to realize the fact, the time was upon them to separate into small hands and push on to Philadelphia in search of new kinds of knowledge. However, the wailings soon ceased and their pioneer spirit reasserted itself and thev worked with a will, learning much about nursing and not less about how " the other half lives. " Many were the friendships made, splendid the instruction and indelibly imprinted the lessons they learned at Brockley. When the time came to return to the home- land, it was not without regret that they said goodbye to the old gray walls that enclosed so many pleasant memories. Upon their return some of the class were sent to explore the East Side of New York as public health nurses, others were trundled away in ambulances to wander in the mazes of psychiatry at Saint Elizabeths and the remaining mem- bers wended their way to " Southeast " Washington to nurse the sick in the high- ways and byways by the river, (Again reader ] refer you to the particular pages whereon are printed the accounts of these adventures.) And so the three years they had allotted to learning the great profession of nursing are over, and they have accomplished many, though not nearly, all the things they set out to do. as they are about to receive the coveted sign of the Chief ' s approval, known as " Diplomas. " They shall then disband in bodv, though not in spirit, to go forth and practice the arts of healing and preventing thev have learned. May they never forget that the time spent at Walter Reed and other posts of duty were only a beginning of the many lessons to be learned and may each year rind them capable of greater service to humanity.

New York is still the greatest city in the world. The old districts are little changed — Greenwich Village, careless and gay — Times Square with its after the theatre crowds — Fifth Avenue with the imposing public library and the distinctive shops in contrast — the Ghetto and Bow- ery. The Bronx is no longer an outlying district. The arms of the city have reached so far that main- a country place of 1925 has become the town house of 1940. Downtown the green and red traffic lights still blink alternately. Even the traffic in the heavens is regulated. Across the sky the planes form fields of light and dark — " Like one of those cross-word puzzles we did years ago " — an observer might remark. Who witnessing this would guess that the pilot of one of these planes is Miss Katherine Hall. She is, with the airplane above New York, on her way from Bos- ton to Washington. True Miss Hall had remained on duty at Walter Reed for some years but the mad r ush of making " fours " and " nines " in the basement supply had been too much of a strain and she had been ordered by Doctor Stecher to give up nursing and stay out-of-doors. " The higher the better. " said Doctor Stecher and K. G. obediently went sky-high! Miss Hall brings her plane to a halt beside the one already waiting for her. " I ' m so sorry to be late. " begins K. C, " but I was arrested for speeding and had it not l een that the aero cop was our classmate. Jeannette Robinson, 1 doubt if J should be here now. Of course she relieved me of fifty dollars. She learned the art of extortion when she was class treasurer, your rememl er. " The pilot does not heed the apology and explanation. " 1 brought Horatio with me, tho ' he ' s quite lost among the baggage. " and the speaker begins to transfer mail pouches to the other plane. K. G. rather expecting to see a poodle or a Persian cat brought forth is rather surprised when Mme. Peacock presents her husband. Mr. Horatio Smith, who emerges from the rear cabin choking and blinking. " Take the air. old thing, there is plenty up here. Horatio somehow doesn ' t 1925 forty-eight p .e n. enjov air riding, but its the only way 1 have of knowing where he is and who is with him ! " Madame Peacock, she preferred to call herself since her marriage to Horatio Smith, proprietor of a smart Fifth Avenue shop catering to fashionable women. Tho ' already behind schedule. K. C. must hear the latest news and sample the cigarettes offered her. Mme. Peacock prefers her pipe. " I ' m week-ending in London with Willie. How shocked all Britain was at the Prince of Wales ' elopement. I don ' t believe they were any more surprised than W ' illiford ' s friends, however; but they are ideally happy, " and she gave a sigh as she gazed at Horatio and took another puff from her trusty pipe. " No doubt many of the girls are in New York this very minute. " says K. C " If 1 hadn ' t promised to attend a reception at the White House tonight I ' d be tempted to go down and look them Lip ; 1 don ' t believe the people in Washington would mind one day ' s delay in the mails, but since Susan Brooks became the First Ladv of the Land I hate to miss a single White House function. " " New Yorkers object when kept waiting for their mail. " and Peacock began to pack mail pouches and husband into cabin. " Williford and I plan to fly over to Paris and get the latest fashions. J do think LeMens creates the most ravish- ing things, but you know me on the subject of clothes — 1 must fly ! " and she was off. Another plane bearing a Red Cross parked near K. C. She recognized this as a hospital plane and looking in she was amazed to see Colonel Adkins doing an emergency appendectomy with Martha Xowinsky as scrub nurse. " I wonder how many of the Army Chris are in that one city, " mused K. C. as she flies southward. How many of the 1925 girls have made New York their mecca ? To answer this question we must make a tour of the city from the squalid tenement to pala- tial home. 1925 forty-nine l-fton Past the ding shops of Allen Street two Public Health nurses are homeward hound. Their conversation is almost obliterated by the roar of the eternal ' elevated. " Marv Ellen Howe won ' t he heme till later. " says Miss Wonser. " She wen ' directly to the Fashion Show where she is exhibiting the uniform. " " I am glad that Marv Ellen consented to go. " replies the other, whom we recognize as Miss Lott. " When younger girls see how attractively the uniforms may he worn it may encourage them to take up the work. We need younger workers in the field of Public Health. " and Miss Lott barely escapes colliding with a peddler and his cart. How gratifying to know that for fifteen years these three have been actively engaged in Public Health Nursing and still retain the old enthusiasm. Across the town in Greenwich Village, not far from Washington Square, a group of men and women are making merr in a studio apartment. A woman at the piano renders a hectic version of the " Hungarian Rhapsody " — she stops abruptly and joins a group of smokers. " 1 wish Ella Peed would hurry with the drinks. " whines llessie Hay, " I ' m (King with thirst. " At this moment Mine. Ella enters the room, laying down the law to her poor husband as usual, and gesticulates wildK with the malted milk shaker. " If you two stop your fuss I might write a hit of verse. " and (iertrude Wil- son gave a toss to her abbreviated and hennaed tresses. Some one puts a record on the victrola. the Misses Dolan and Sinkler known on Keith ' s circuit as the " Syncopation Sisters. " exhibit their latest step much to their audience ' s delight. A tall young lady is speaking — " Mrs. Vincent de Reymer has consented to a sitting, naturally 1 am greatly surprised and pleased. " The " Diamond King ' s " most precious jewel. Mrs. de Reymer. nee Helen Carey ! She had been a faithful nurse during a siege of pneu- monia that had almost ended the career of this famous financier and connoisseur of rare gems. His extreme age had, been against him. and during a sinking spell he 4 I - 1925 - fifty fcaaa had insisted on marrying his nurse. To everyone ' s surprise he promptly recov- ered. Now the white-haired man and his charming wife are considered to put the social stamp on any affair they condescend to attend. As the party disbands hasty reminders are exchanged: " .Miss Mcl ' .ride ' s re- hearsal at ten sharp tomorrow. .Miss Frost and Miss Taylor, too. I want to get that ' Dance of the Nymphs ' perfected. " Xot many blocks away a wedding is being solemnized at the " Little Church .Around the Corner. " The bride is Margaret Jordan and the groom Lee Francis. The only attendants are the actress. Annie Xeal Howell, and her director husband. After the ceremony .Miss Howell and her husband accompany the happy couple to the Pennsylvania station, then they must dash to the theatre where .Miss Howell is starring in " Tillie ' s Teenv Tootsies, " from the pen of Alline Thompson. The bride and groom will make their home in Center Building, St. Llizabeths, where she will rind man - acquaintances. Miss Bcrens is now Director of Nurses, while Edna Livingston is in charge of tin- Training School. They are happy in their work, their one diversion being chaperoning the patients to entertainments. Another old friend is there, but sad to say she is not on duty. A victim of coco-cola psychosis, Prudence Anderson has Iter own little strong room in " (j " Building.

The tall distinctive figure is a prominent Western lawyer. We recognize the irail little woman by his side, her hair now attractively gray, as liillie Howell. Beside them are their oldest twins. William and Wilma. The nursemaid has little Barr and Barrett by the hand. The family are returning to C alifornia following a sojourn to their chateau in France. ( )n the lower level the suburban trams empty their human cargo into the city. A man in clerical attire has come in town to attend a church conference. His wife accompanies him. She makes it a point to take part in church activities but she can ' t help wishing they would go to see Esther Ransom in Ceo. White ' s " Scandals.

They have just returned from foreign duty and are met by Miss Eleanor Merrill, reporter for the " 1 imes. " Miss Merrill has made quite a name for herself as being able to receive the most detailed information in the shortest space of time. " I ' m looking for Mamie Rosser — was Mamie on the ship? Is it true that she is suing the Colonel for divorce and chargi ng Frances Mitchell with alienation id " affection: Did he transfer his devotions from the blonde type to the brunette? Do you think it ' true that he told her to dye her hair and she preferred giving up the Colonel rather than her golden tresses? Did Frances vamp him because she fed him her diabetic muffins at her famous sanitarium on the Hudson River? I must bud Mamie -where is she? " lime will not permit more of Miss Merrill ' s questions.

Never before did the Army Hand play " Till We Meet Again " more bfeijis i plaintively. Were you ever so enthused over the new adventures the future was about to briny and so full of tears at leaving old friends and happy surroundings, all at once? That ' s the way most of us felt when the good ship " Grant " sailed out of the Golden (late. " The (lavs that followed were fdled with many interesting experiences— such a delightfully lazy time. Morning found us lounging luxuriously about the decks, basking in the sunshine and sea breezes, coming more and more under the spell of the blue, blue water all about us. In the afternoon we played bridge or Mali longg then loafed a little more. After dinner we walked around the deck many times, indulged in games and dances. One of the greatest pleasures oi the trip was the verv delightful meals so attractively served. Strange to relate no one " hung over the rail " much after the first day at sea. Southern waters, a ship, dangerous moon peeking down, soft breezes blowing, men and maids — but then that ' s another story. Three davs we spent investigating Panama and all her glories of the past and the present. Such a quaint old place full of curious and interesting things. With wide-eved wonder and amazement we visited the hospitals, schools, shops, hotels, cabaret and clubs. Bargain day at the Palais Royal had nothing on the shops of Panama. Merchants much to their surprise found their wares falling far below the original price. Such merciless shoppers were the Army (iirls who managed to get away with a rather expensive vial of French perfume for $2.98. Then we set sail once more this time through the famous Panama Canal. So curious were some of us that we slipped up to the boat deck in order that we wouldn ' t tnis a single thing. We didn ' t— not even a most painful tropical sunburn which temporarily ruined our beauty and for two days kept us under the care ol the ship surgeon wdio smeared us often with much zinc oxide. As we proceeded up the Atlantic coast our deck pleasures became things of the past. Alas! we had left the warm air and soft breezes of the south. We realized it was winter in the East. Great " little ole " New York with her gaunt gray sky-scrapers towering above us. Though our hearts sped back over the miles to our beloved Golden Gate we were " kinder " glad to land.

In our cradle, Quarters Seven, we have lived, neither more or less quietly than other infants, with dreams perhaps disturbed by hybrid phantasmagoria of anatomy, cooking utensils, chemistry and long curls of white gauze. I ' ossiblv we have wished sadly that we possessed that infantile characteristic of being agree- able and efficient by simply saying " (Joo-goo " and " Wah-wah. " However, we are beginning to feel that soon we will grow out of the first of our seven ages and even make a feeble attempt to leave a footprint in the sands of Walter Reed. After three months our spirit is eager and our shield polished, while each day long vistas of new worlds to be conquered are revealed to us.

The stories of nights on Maternity, emergencies on D. ( ). Y. and ctay.s with the ba- bies in " Children ' s " filled us with admiration for the girls who bad me! and coped w ith the things they described and at the same tune caused us in it a few secret misgivings as to our own ability. Time passed and we were about to embark mi the great adventure. With Miss Stimson ' s wise counsel fresh in our minds, we climbed into the waiting- ambulances and waxed sad farewells to our supervisors, as we rolled down the drive and turned toward town. We were kindly received by Miss Clayton and after a few words with her were conducted to our respective wards. Tongues flew in Army Alley that night as we gave the " latest " from Walter Reed to our classmates, who bad preceded us and listened with added interest to their exchange of the day ' s happenings. As we went to bed we sorely missed the friendly notes of the bugle which were replaced by the roar of trains and their long, shrill whistles. In a tew days we were adjusted to our new surrounding.-, and were giving our opinions on certain cases like veterans. While on duty we learned to shower thirty youngsters in as many minutes, struggled with the " nurse ' s record " sheets, learned to talk to the internes, about our patients without getting " Honorary M. D. ' s, " learned to " set up " the delivery room in less time than it takes to tell about it. and became familiar with many new terms, such as " A. ( ' . R. P. " and " Hypodermoclisis, " etc. These were only a few of the facts we absorbed. During the hours off. we were often seen in the Waffle Shop, near by, barkening to the voice of the " inner man. " As the winter blasts gave way to the gentle breezes of April we spent many of our precious hours, sitting on the steps down by the railroad track, watching the trains, walking in the Cniversitv gardens or planning " If M. " boat trips to Wilmington. ( ur time was so occupied that it fairly look wings and bore us quicklv to our last services. Although some of the work bad been harder than we bad known at home, it was so very interesting and the friendships we formed so pleasant, that we were not nearly so overjoyed to bear Miss Kerwig say, " Your affiliation is completed today. " as we had expected to be. Our grateful thoughts often go back to -Miss Clayton for her interest in us and for her helpful conferences with us. to Miss Krumbine for her lessons in technique on maternity, to Miss Fawcett for her friendly guidance at " Children ' s " and to Miss Hutchinson for her shining example in lessons of patience and kindli- ness. We also like to remember the fellowships of the many student nurses with whom we worked. And so it was with mingled emotions that we gave our places in Armv Alley and the wards of Blockley to other young A. S. X. hopefuls, and boarded one of the trains we had watched so often to come home. M. F.

As a hospital, however, its history began in the post-Civil War days of 1870, and in its long career it has heen the scene of countless experiments and developments in the world of surgery and nursing, in 1891 it was combined with Columbia Hospital for women, and maintained that connection until ii was made an insti- tution for the exclusive care of children. The building, on VY Street, between 12th and 13th, has been given the most modern equipment. Into it each year are brought some 25.000 children, tortured by all manner of diseases and afflictions, to be made well and strong. The rich and the poor, the adorable baby and the ugly duckling, all share the sanctuary of its walls, for it is a charity as well as a private hospital. Nobly " Children ' s " answers every demand. She welcomes all the afflicted tots brought to her; understanding she offers them her best— the services of her well trained doctors and nurses without stint. There are many outstanding features in the training school of such a hos- pital. The knowledge gained there produces some veritable wizards in child psy- chology. And memories of our days there will always bring us cheer. There was. for instance, the never-ending and never-settled argument as to the relative merits of the schools at Children ' s. Gallinger. Garfield, George Wash- ington. Homopathic. Walter Reed, and St. Elizabeths. Walter Reed was usually in the forefront, due to the clever arguing of the .Misses Reed, Hurkhart and Xowinski. The Misses Donald and Duncan ably defended Gallinger. Miss Shafer dwelt on George Washington ' s " priceless " equipment, and Miss liall occasionally, but effectively, upheld Garfield. Nor shall we forget the shock that came to us when we learned there would be no p. m. ' s for us. P. m. ' s, we were told, belonged to the days of luxury back in Walter Reed. How many times we have hastened from 14th and I " Streets, with the clock- registering dangerously near 9 p. m.. only to arrive outside in time to hear the door banged ahead of us, and thereby lose our one bit of joy for the week.— the late leave. Then there was our many contributions to equipment to replace that mys- teriously broken — thermometers. Dakin syringes, etc.. etc.. and Taylor went so far as to donate a beautiful full-size double-boiler to modernize the kitchen equipment. Despite our quiet demeanor, we can still hear Doctor Crawford ' s booming voice exclaim. " What ' s the matter with them? Have them hush up at once. " And charts? Yes, we did most of them. The A. S.

When telegrams, long-distance calls, and visitors were classified as disturh- ing elements, no more to he indulged in. the tidings brought to us again, and in- tensified, the longing to he hack in dear old Walter Reed.

Washington; within its portals I spent three months of affiliation. One month in the delivery ward, one month on floor duty, and one month in the nursery where the wee passengers landed day after day from the unknown mystery ship. I often wondered what the future held in store for them. The little flowerlike faces, the soft, white skin which one would love to touch. I fed them, clothed them and washed them from i morning to night ; hut oh ! they were thankless passengers ! They howled and yelled no matter what I did for them. Forsake? No. 1 did not forsake them, for whom knows their little hearts may have had trouhles of their own. My second month spent in the delivery room was somewhat different work. When my patient reached the hour of her agonizing travail, I sat heside her, cooled her fevered hrow, 1 treated her as a mother treats her child, for her life seemed to me one endless, living death. " ( )h, God ! " she cried, " how long, how long. " Then the doctor, with a question here and a question there, made diagnosis plain, for he covered her face and told her to take long, deep hreaths. Soon the ether to sweet slumher led her. for the sufferer lay peacefully asleep. I blessed the newborn babe ' s first breath, and I closed their eyes when they were still in death. The third month was spent on floor duty where I watched my patients pil- grimage from bed to chair, an old. old adventure to me. but a new one to them, 1 took their temperatures. 1 passed out pills and tried to remedv their numerous ills. They bothered the doctor, they scolded me. while I with many footsteps then- perfect comfort sought. During the night I glided softly through the halls, my duties were great and my hours were long. In my spare moments I wrote on their charts, things they were not supposed to see. of their temperatures, pills, and doc- tors visits, with a brief review of the day. I arose when a light went on. and kept smiling when asked the time in the dead of the night. Now, my comrades dressed in blue. These simple words I ' ll say to you, " Cheer up! don ' t be sad.

It seemed very strange at first not to have the regular ward routine to per- form hut merely to observe. However, in true Army style we were soon very much at home. Hours on duty at St. Elizabeths included taking patients to the movies, dancing with them ( fancy that ! I and accompanying them to chapel. The services were a great comfort to such of the patients as could go to them and seemed to brighten the time in confinement. • hir opportunities for studying " human hehavior " were unlimited, as so main of these patients are without the wall of defense which normal minds build by suppressing many impulses which with these people have free expression. We were always trying to find examples of the types so well described to us by Doctor Lewis and Dr. Richmond. Doctor Moves ' classes in which histories were read, followed by the introduction of the patient concerned, left us with many valuable lessons we shall not soon forget. As the curfew rang at 10 o ' clock our chief off-duty pastimes were bridge. dancing at the Red Cross House or Hitchcock Hall, where we joined in the square dances with our patients, and going out " home " occasionally to see " the kids, " and get the " latest " at Walter Reed. ( )ur work was made pleasant there by the cordial hospitality shown us by everyone. To Miss Vaughn goes our appreciation and to all the doctors and nurses with whom we worked, many thanks for sixty enjoyable days at St. Eliza- beths.

" I turned and saw a pair of typical " Eastsiders " touching their caps, caps with a wide shield in front, pulled at an angle over their faces. " Yes. indeed. " 1 said, after giving them a quick surveying glance and noticing nothing disquieting, 1 stopped. " Oh, we can show you. We know Miss W ' ald. everybody down here knows her, and we can tell the strangers that are looking for the ' House. ' " It was dark and gloomy in that section of Xew York, and almost oppressinglv quiet. For once the streets were deserted. Children, peddlers and pushcarts had vanished. That seething, noisy atmosphere, the bewildering confusion of day- time traffic and hand to hand trade, the litter and refuse in the streets, even the many cats and dogs of lowly pedigree, all that which so typifies the Lower East- side was absent. This was my first venture at night into the mazes of those densely populated streets, and the effect was decidedly different. It was Thanksgiving night. Miss Lillian D. W ' ald had graciously extended an invitation to us. Miss Peacock and J had accepted, and I was on my way to the " House. " By mistake I had gotten off the bus two or three blocks out of the way and was trying to recollect the exact location when the two voting East- side men volunteered to guide me to the Settlement House. " She is a great lady, " one of them continued, " guess you know her well. even better than we do. " he added, growing confidential. " You must be one of them nurses, too, ain ' t you, Miss? Are von working in the field ' uptown, ' in the Harlem section perhaps, or where? " Evidently 1 did not belong to the downtown district. I did not mind their apparent familiarity. They knew Miss aid. the Settlement House, and had " guessed " (Heaven knows by what!) that 1 was one of " them nurses " too. They showed me. as we continued walking along, such courtesies as are " de rigueur " down there, leading me b y my elbow from om corner of the street to the other, helping me up and down the curbs. " oil will meet some sw : ell folks there tonight, a real Russian Princess will be there, " nn informant continued, using the " Foist " Avenue dialect, and chewing gum vigorously. " You seemed to be well informed. " J remarked. Their faces broadened into an affirmative self-satisfied smile. By this time we bad arrived in front of Henry Street House. 1 thanked them for their assistance. They touched their caps again and wished me a grand time at the part} - . The House is quaint; among the tenements it stands out for its superior lines and construction, and then there is a certain air about it that gives it distinction. Inside an ( )ld World atmosphere seems to prevail — touches of Eastern Europe, mostly Russian. hie feels strangely comfortable. Russian brasspieces and other decorations, old prints, artful and odd. all about the rooms and mantelpieces, teli - 1925 - eipht-ft-fottT ;_ :35 I stories of countries and peoples, their customs and traditions. Some of it was bizarre, some semi-oriental in effect. In keeping with the day and the occasion Thanksgiving decorations were all over the House. The rooms were already filled with guests, and still they continued coming, being introduced to each other, conversing with each other. To my own surprise 1 happened to lie there exactly three-fourths of a minute before Gladys Peacock- arrived — arrayed in furs, georgette-crepe and beads. It was truly a formal affair, most of the guests being in decollete, some in simpler gowns and styles. We were waiting for Miss Wald to appear, and then there was that " real " Russian Princess to meet, as my obliging escorts had informed me. The guests were interesting to watch — the different types, the different accents and inflections of voices, their facial expressions and change, and their mannerisms. Some were interesting because of their immobility of features. These types are beautiful, their Eastern calm is fascinating; something always seems to lie smouldering beneath it. The guests strangely fitted into the atmosphere of the place. There was a slight stir. Conversation was interrupted for a moment. Miss Wald — autocrat, democrat, the ruler of Henrv Street House — had made her entrance, bearing the unmistakable air of a cosmopolitan. She smilingly and graciously welcomed us and soon we were all seated at our respective tallies. Dinner was served by young girls and men in Puritan costumes. There was the usual variety of courses and dishes, also a punch and cider with real taste and flavor. Conversation was animated. Guests became better acquainted as the din- ner progressed. At our own table Gl adys Peacock, from London, England, soon had everybody laughing and listening to her sophistications and post-war vocabu- lary. We were just sipping our after dinner coffee when Miss Wald leaned over and smilingly inquired if anyone knew the date, or year, of the very first Thanks- giving dinner. The Russian Princess had asked the question, and true and sad enough none of the good Americans and patriots present were able to enlighten the ex-royalty, nor themselves, offhand. " Fourteen ninety-two, " 1 said carelessly, thinking of Columbus and the Pil- grim Fathers ' landing as one event, and causing no end of mirth and laughter. A guest arose and begged to be excused ; he was a man of deed and action and wanted to consult his dictionary ( being a cross-word-puzzle-fiend ) . Thus it hap- pened that we all, Lillian D. Wald. the Princess, the many good Americans pres- ent, as well as Gladys Peacock and myself, learned that evening that the first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in 1621. There was to be dancing after dinner for those so inclined, and others went to see an act or two at the Neighltorhood Playhouse where the " Grandstreet Fol- lies " were having such a phenomenal success. The supervisor of my district, Miss Peacock, and I went over to the playhouse, which, like Henry Street House, is one of the landmarks of the Lower Eastside. During the intermission a Henry Street nurse gave a speech from the stage, clever and witty, and not miss- - 1925 - eighty-five IrAQO ing its apj ea1. There was a drive going on for the l»enefit of Henry Street settle- ment, and the crowd, in a holiday mood, responded most generously. These people are proud of Henry Street House and do not forget the good and help that has always gone out from there to the poor and suffering ones — " regardless of creed, color and race. " When we returned to the reception, most of the guests were leaving, so we. too. wished our hostess " good night. " Hit in the darkness we went, looking for the bus that brings one to the sub- way station. There Gladys Peacock and 1 separated for different directions. " Good bye. " she said, using one of her original " affectionate " French expressions, for which. " Allah be praised. " there is no literal translation possible. Her typical laughter rang out. I watched her disappear. The Broadway express thundered into the station; 1 hoarded it and was soon a way uptown. It had heen a very interesting evening. My thoughts went hack to mv first American Thanksgiving party, some years ago, out in Scutary. at the American College. Varied had been my paths since then. The war lay between. ( )ceans 1 had traversed. A far step indeed from that Thanksgiving Day and dinner in Asia .Minor to a similar celebration at the famous Henry Street House on the Lower Eastsicle of X ' ew York Citv.

Underneath our masks of serenity were sensations not unlike those of an explorer, for we were going to a new field. c arrived at the Center and were greeted by Miss Rood and Miss Logan who gave us a few preliminary instructions, to say nothing of blue coats and velour hats sizes and sizes too large. The coats dragged the ground and the hats looked like umbrellas on the smaller of the group. Six of us were sent to the main office in uniform — the smallest ones looking like stepchildren, the taller ones looking very professional. Here we were sent out with the staff nurses to learn the technique. It was a very interesting expe- rience to observe. The next day we actually started the work all by ourselves. And after a week of substitute we were given districts all our ven own. Though our dear little black bags tilled our hearts with joy by night they filled our arms with aches. So - 1925 - T tifihty-xtx r non. conspicuous did we feel in this new role, the glimpses of each passer-by seemed to ask. " Book agent or soap peddler? " On Mondays and Saturdays we were out in the field all day, but the other days when the troubles of the morning weighed heavy on us we could anticipate classes from three to five. To some of us this meant a delicious little snooze which occasionally was disturbed by an especially interesting lecturer. Friday afternoons were devoted to excursions to various places of interest which influenced some particular part of our work. We were fortunate in having our lectures given us by men and women not only prominent in activities of the day but who are living and making history. Our supervisors were kind and patient and most helpful to us. One month of the course was devoted to social case work with the Asso- ciated Charities. Each of us had our experiences being detectives, mothering picka- ninnies, escorting wayward children to court and clinics. Some were indeed so wayward that they entirely disappeared just as we would get them in the doctor ' s office or courtroom. A week with the Child Welfare Association and a week with the School Nurses was given us. It seemed good to find that there were so many really well, healthy, happy babies and schoolchildren. And now as our time with the Instructive Visiting nurses draws to a close the last colors are added which completes the picture of our very happy three years in training.

J still wonder what the floor pans were for. because never by any chance did a bloody sponge find a shelter in one. As I had been specially instructed to keep the bloody sponges picked up, 1 concentrated on bloody sponges to the ex- clusion of all else. 1 was given an instrument that looked like a pair of high forcepts called a sponge stick to fish them up with. So 1 dived, 1 crawled, I skidded and slid — all for the elusive little bloody sponge! Death hovered near a 1 dived for one on the other side of Colonel Keller and nearly had my head chopped off between his legs. And everv time my head was on a level with the floor in some grotesque position in an attempt to reach a sponge. Captain Dovell would fling one right into my eye, with the utmost dexterity — perhaps my face looked like a floor pan to him. in which case I can vouch he is a very good shot! Someone whispered, " Cotton ball, quick ! " None on the stand. (Oh, Mike, why was 1 given big English feet?) I made a wild dash, to be " quick and effi- cient. " tripped over the lamp wire. It tottered and wavered over the table; but " Lady Luck " was with me — as it fell it struck Major Kirk full on the head in- stead! How I Imrd that head! A breathless silence followed in that white, cold, room. The trip on the wire had precipitated me at a flying speed down the room, skidding wildly on a bloody sponge, arms wide, body swaying, missing the the instrument cupboard by one-eighth of an inch, then with either pure luck or utmost skill crashed through the door to the thundering notes of Colonel Keller ' s voice, " Who did that? " Did I return with those cotton balls, or did I stay outside that room for one- half hour — a mental wreck, cursing my feet, cursing myself, and above all curs- ing bloody sponges? You have guessed right — 1 stayed awhile to pull myself to- gether ! However. 1 can ' t put all the blame on the bloody sponges — nine-tenths must have l een just me. For instance, it reallv isn ' t done to hand a doctor a sterile towel to wipe his hands, when said towel is full of needles and sutures; nor is it done to fling boiling water down Colonel Keller ' s back when asked for " hot flushes.

Arise as per usual, dress hastily and carelessly so as to give an air of non- chalance. 2. Scamper into the graduates ' dining-room, tying your tie on the way. Ap- pear to have as much difficulty in fastening your cuffs as the girl hehind you. 3. Seat yourself near the center so that someone else can pour your water and coffee for you. When reaching for the cream, keep at least one foot on the floor. 4. Examine the edge of your knife carefully so as to avaid cutting your lips. 5. Do not make sarcastic remarks ahout the coffee, you may be old and weak some day. 6. When you get to the ward, dismiss the night nurse as soon as vou can, in a firm but kindly manner. 7. Inform yourself incidentally as to who is your charge nurse. It will bene- fit you to know. Assure her that you will manage the ward in the true classroom style. 8. Find the older students ; go up to them and show them how to do things correctly, as stated in Harmer ' s Practical Nursing. Thev will appreciate it. 9. When the chief nurse comes to inspect, give her your ideas on ward prob- lems, then give her some nourishment. You can expect only the highest esteem trom her after that. 10. When you and the doctors do dressings allow the cart nurse to carry the bucket for you. 11. If she desires bandage scissors lie sure to place them back with the sterile dressings. 12. After having fully assured yourself that you have contaminated the en- tire dressing cart, help the doctor remove his gown. 13. Drop into the ward and see if the work has been done. 14. At the proper time, call all the patients into your office for their medicine. Also give each of them a thermometer so that they can take their own temps. 15. Be sure to tell the other nurses which supper you are going to. 16. Follow the above rules carefully and you will undoubtedly prove a suc- cess in the Army School of Nursing. SUGGESTIONS ON CONDUCT AT A BIG LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME 1. Be sure that you ask a lot of questions in a loud tone of voice. It is so enlightening to you, your partner and to those about you. It is. moreover, such a source of entertainment especially during a sensational portion of the game. Don ' t omit asking, " What ' s that for? " at everv play. It is conducive to self- control, especially on his part. 3. Always cheer for the visiting team, never for the home team ; it would be unladylike and you might catch cold in your gold teeth. - 1925 - ninety-nine srt aon. 4. In a tense moment, if someone places a heavy hand or perhaps a misdirected lower extremity upon your new spring hat, quietly remark in a high-pitched shriek, mingled with spearmint. " Some folks got their nerve. " Create a picturesque effect. 5. He sure to ask him, " I low come you arn ' t playing with them, vou heitv such an excellent twirler? " " What are they all laughing at me for? " 6. hen the game is over, don ' t forget to ask the score, the name of the teams who played, and why they played that way. 7. If you find that your gallant has suddenly departed, don ' t he surprised. lie may not appreciate good company. I wo microl es sal in a milk pan And said in accents pained. As they watched the milkman filter the milk. " )ur relations are getting strained. " AT BLOCKLEY It was their first day on duty and in I). ( ). V. Business seemed alarminglv good that first day; they were getting ready for a " case. " As Miss Wonser and Miss Ransom were scurrying from one room to the other, the doctor, who was busily writing, called to them to get him an obstetrical sheet. Menu gave Raus a meaning glance, meaning, " What on earth is that? " which Rans returned imme- diately. They then rushed out to the linen room and gave it a hasty, hut thorough, search without success. They were reluctant to ask the doctor what it was like, lor they felt they should know. So they marched madly on. Finally, in despera- tion, Rans shamefacedly asked the doctor what it looked like, lie held up another chart and said. " ( hie like this. " AT ST. ELIZABETHS A party oi congressmen were passing through the hospital. In " I! " ward one of the party lingered while tile other.-, crossed the hall, to see the wonders in " B. When the belated one attempted to cross over to where his friends were. he was forcibly persuaded to remain where he was. Bui I ' m a Congressman, " he explained. " I ' hat ' s what they all say.

" Anna May Taylor, on a recent visit to the Zoo was gazing at one of our kin. dating hack to the days before our ancestral evolution, when Pat, a bystander, inquired: " Beg pardon, but phwat kind of a crittur is that? " She replied. " That, my dear man. is a native of Australia. " Pat threw up his hands and exclaimed, " May the Lord have mercv on her. me sister married one of them. " PUBLIC HEALTH Heard at child welfare lecture. Lecturer — " Have any of you young ladies any questions to ask about teething? " Miss Howe — " When does a habv get his Hutchinson ' s teeth?

" M iss Livingstone — " No. " Corpsman — " Then I have just the horse for you — he ' s never been ridden before either. You two can start out together. " Whoa, entirely whoa! Miss Conde (greatly provoked) — " Oh, sit on a tack! " Sergeant McCafferv — " I ' d tell vou to do that if vou were wide enough.

" 1925- ONf httrifiml out! our p .Q.a " jflan " JAX can ' t sleep out of doors without freezing to death or getting rheu- matism; he can ' t keep his nose under water over a minute without being drowned. He ' s the poorest, clumsiest excuse of all creatures that inhabit the earth. " He has to be coddled, swathed and bandaged to he able to live at all. He is a rickety sort of thing any way you take him — a regular British Museum of inferiorities. " He is always undergoing repairs. A machine as unreliable as he is would have no market. " The lower animals appear to us to get their teeth without pain or incon- venience ; man ' s come through after months of cruel torture, at a time when he is least able to bear it. As soon as he gets them they must be pulled out again. The second set will last for a while, but he will never get a set that he can depend upon until the dentist makes one. " Man starts in as a child, and lives on diseases to the end as a regular diet, lie has mumps, scarlet fever, whooping cough, croup, tonsilitis and diphtheria, as a matter of course. " Afterwards, as he goes along, his life continues to be threatened at every turn by colds, coughs, asthma, bronchitis, quinsy, consumption, yellow fever, blindness, influenza, carbuncles, pneumonia, softening of the brain, and a thousand other maladies of one sort or another. " He ' s just a basketful of pestilent corruption, provided for the support and entertainment of microbes. Look at the workmanship of him in some particulars: " What ' s his appendix for? It has no value. Its sole interest is to lie and wait for a stray grape seed and breed trouble. " What is his beard for? It is just a nuisance. All nations persecute it with a razor. Nature, however, always keeps him supplied with it. instead of putting it on his head. " A man wants to keep his hair. It is a graceful ornament, a comfort, the best protection against weather, and he prizes it above emeralds and rubies, and half the time nature puts it on so it won ' t stay. " Man isn ' t even handsome, and as for style, look at the liengal tiger — that ideal of grace, physical perfection and majesty. Think of the lion, the tiger and the leopard, then think of man, that poor thing! The animal of the wig. the ear trumpet, the glass eve. the porcelain teeth, the wooden leg. the silver windpipe, a creature that is mended all from top to Ixrttom. " — Mark Twain.

It dropped from my mouth before Miss Logan ' s eyes And now no more can I " chaw. " Billie Howell believes in " Eat and Grow Fat. " At least she successfully launched the Nutritionist on an extra quarter of an hour of food chat, and will thereby gain a Food Calendar to hang in her kitchen. It was amusing when Peggy was hailed as a " dear friend " by a dark complexioned patient, hut it was even funnier when Kennedy was " honked at " and taken for a lift by Hazel, Anthonv and Baby while they were on their honeymoon. Lily Lott revived a foreign custom when she became " taster " of some Italian concoctions. Miss S to M iss Lauriat on one of those linger longer Sunday mornings : " Get up you lazy sinner — We want your sheets for the table and — It ' s nearlv time for dinner. " " Hail to the Chief ! " The cock-roaches gently but firmly moved the bed covers when Kennedy went into her favorite home. She was recognized by the bug on her collar. Mitchell walks and walks and walks, and never seems quite through, so at class time she ' s often seen sleeping by Miss Rood. Much to her horror. Peggy found that she was nineteen pounds under weight for a man of her size. Lauriat lost another chance for future happiness when she fell down the steps of Friendship House the other day. Walk ' s too quiet : can ' t get the goods on her. Peggy : I got a bite on the car last night. Torch} ' : Must have been a publicity bug. When Lily Lott retires from the Arm} she expects to take up family gossip-gathering a R. Q. course in Social Service. A new sign on the office telephone reads : " This is a business telephone and not to be used for private calls. If you wish to use it for such kindly deposit five cents. " There have been no nickles spent. Coming events cast their shadows before. Kennedy ' s advice was asked by a mother before she would carry out a doctor ' s orders; good practice for the future Mrs. Doctor . Hut Burkhart had to have a written order from the family physician before she was allowed to give a bath. -1925 one hundred and three A.O.O. I 1 1925 one hundred and jour £■ A O. $re£tbent ' s; jffles age PARTING that will bring regret to all of us is just ahead. Jt means the severing of ties that we have cherished. It well may seem associa- tions cultivated long, as ours, might better l e preserved, so pleasant have they been, ll may be ruthless to destroy them when their strength and licautv daily grow. And yet — " How dull it is to pause, to make an end. to rust unburnished, not to shine in use. " Humanity is calling, offering tasks whose very import makes of each a precious privilege, calling for the help, the sympathy, the ministrations we can give. We cannot linger when we see about us work undone, the vastness of the field, the upstretched arms of those who need our aid. We cannot bid them wait upon our wishes. We cannot put our vain desires above their needs. Our very lives are dedicated now to ease their burdens, to bring a bit of sunshine where there ' s night. " And hither did 1 ride to thee " ; we soon may say. " and tidings do i bring and lucky joys and golden times and happy news. " Is there a greater mission, in the universe, than this? Can anv have a privi- lege more profound? Can any service man aspire to all the glory of our own? Let ' s keep it sacred, let us hold fast to the spirit of it. never pausing, never tak- ing time to doubt it is divine. To us life is a simple art of duties to be done; it never must lie more lest all its worth be tarnished. Our pledge shall always point ahead, a beacon in the blackness of life ' s pain, to lead us on and spread the cheer that is our purpose. Remaining true to it. we cannot fail. Through the ages the sublime devotion that our leader gave us .shall endure, and we shall treasure her example for our lives. It was not idly that we took the standard she laid down, nor idly shall we bear it through the years. What resolution we can gain from her; what strength her life of service can provide us! Too proud to waste a blessing or a talent that could help the world, she shows the way still open to us all. The light she left behind shines on the paths we seek to take, and only profound faith and love for all mankind are needed in our steps to follow her. Fleeting moments hasten to their end and leave us all too little time for our ambitions. We cannot sit with idle hands and be content. Because we know our wants, our urge to labor, we greet the hour when preparation ceases and toil 1 - 1925- one hundred avd five aao. begins. We welcome all demands that may come to us. we hope for blessings that shall ever wait on helpful deeds. And through it all. through all the joys and tribulations we must face to reach the goal on which our hopes are fixed, let us resolve that none can ever dim the memories ot " our days together. Let us always hold the good, the ennobling influences, the dee]) regard for one another ' s welfare we have found within our school. And let us, too. preserve tin- bonds of friendship that smoothed the way in many trying moments, so that to each as site embarks for other fields, we may exclaim : " And you. farewell! whose merits claim, justly, that highest badge to wear.
