Courtesy ol Iohnson and Iohnson 17" " Ili' 0 ',Q1l,f . ,N DEDICATION To Mrs. Leota C. Swank, Director of Nurses of the Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital, in sincere appreciation for her untiring efforfs and faithful guidance for the betterment of our profession, We the Senior Class of 1941 respectfully dedicate our initial edition oi the "Pink Cross." 'bf DEDICATION BY MRS. SWANK TO SENIOR CLASS Most of us are aware, by now, that there is something going on in the World-that there is something moving in the world-that we are not living in the gay nineties-in that period of peace and tranquility which is often described as a "dream wor1d." During that period the world was comparatively free from national anxiety, and if from that, then indeed from international collapse. In such a day, the person with humanitarian interests, whether a doctor, a nurse, or a social worker, went' out to fight disease. Today he must fight not only disease, but man. Today he battles not the natural enemies of man, but the "mind of man himself." Indeed, we are aware that this is a momentous era in history, as H. G. Wells says: "We are living in the end of a different period of history." This is obvious, for in the exact words of those who attack modern civilization: "I shall eradicate the thousands of years of human domesticationf' It is almost impossible to comprehend such Words. But if those, what of these? "I want to see again in the eyes of youth the gleam of the beast of prey. A youth will grow up before which the world will shrink. This is the disease which every humanitarian minded person meets. It is far worse than the diseases of the body which at least are subject to scientific analysis, and which, for the most part, are under the control of man. What a satisfaction it is to know that a test-tube in the scientific laboratory behaves according to a pattern-that it responds willingly to the investigating hand of man! But a disease of mind, wherein a sane man pursues an insane idea, namely, the eradication of the thousands of years of human domestication,-such a disease defies the rules of the game. ' It is into such a World that nurses and those interested in humanitarian ends, must go, not into an optimistic world, with a kindly vision which promises ease and freedom, not into a world where justice and individual happiness is the goal, and where the enrichment of culture is sought, for these are held in bitterness and contempt by those who move in the pattern of a black and bloodstained pessimism. An optimism and humanitarian social creed is con- sidered as a general weakness of mind. Hence, that which was once the code and ethic of the great human professions, is now looked upon in cold derision and scorn. A terrific task, then rests upon those who enter these professions, if they are to maintain a respect for the standards which have come to be regarded by civilization as worthwhile. They must go with a dominant committment to the democratic rights of many they must go with a dynamic belief in the human gains of an enlightened civilization. There is no room for that innocuous con- ception which has pervaded the democracies in recent years. We cannot save our democracy by sitting in a stupor. We cannot preserve our cherished rights by irresoluteness of mind, by anemic and flaccid walls. Neither can we save the freedom and liberty which have been our heritage, by dwaddling about in faltering accents. "The brave man chooses while the coward stands aside," wrote Lowell. Is it not also true, as Theodore Roosevelt asserted, that "free peoples can escape being mastered by others only by being able to master themselves." The medical profession faces this tremendous challenge-a challenge to be dominant in its belief that human rights are sacred, for that is the base of the profession itself. Again, it must have a strong committment to its "ministry of healing," for it is this the philosophy of human consideration- which is challenged today. LEOTA C. SWANK, R. N.

It was suggested by a senior student that We name our book for the institution's symbol. Thus "Pink Cross" becomes known also as the yearbook title. SANTA FILOMENA Lo! in that house of misery A lady with a lamp I see Pass through the glimmering gloom, And flit from room to room. And slow, as in a dream of bliss, The speechless sufferer turns to kiss Her shadow, as it falls, Upon the darkening walls. As a door in heaven should be Opened and then closed suddenly, The vision came and went, The light shone and was sent. A lady with a lamp shall stand In the great history of the land A noble type of good Heroic womanhood. -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow CVMH CVMH Mr. Herbert G. Fritz, Fellow ot The American College of Hospital Administration Hospital Superintendent HOSPITAL HISTORY Sitting in my room, as often, staring at the institution of which I was a part, cmd wondering of its exciting history, a cloud came over my eyes and a voice from nowhere began to tell me of an exciting, vivid story. The time was May 31, l889g and the scene one of disaster, gloom, and destruction. There was a cry of anguish, pallecl tearstained faces. A city in the valley of the Alleghanies had been visited by the drama of death and destruction, the great "Iohnstown Flood". Upon some faces there was written bereavement and deprivation. Other survivors tryingly characterized patience, fortitude and cheerful submission. Illness and accident was everywhere. Out of the gloom came Dr. Pancoast and a chapter of the American Red Cross. still in its youth. They immediately began the work of house-to-house visitation and ministration to the sick and injured. As soon as possible they obtained a few tents and erected them in the orchard of Iudge Harnilton's place on Kernville Hill. The first patient was a 14 year old child with diphtheria, a disease prevalent at this time. Other patients were admitted rapidly and enlargement of facilities was deemed necessary. The tents were succeeded by an L-shaped one story wooden building. This was occupied from Iune to Ianuary 21 when the Red Cross withdrew and the institution was taken over by the Cambria Co. Medical Association. HOSPITAL HISTORY About this time the State Flood Commission found that they still had on their hands about SlU0,0UU of relief money. The amount was too small for general distribution, and the commission felt that if the money could be put to some general use, for the good of the people as a whole, greater benefit would result. The Medical Association immediately appealed for aid in erecting a permanent hospital for the reception and care of the afflicted. It was ap- paling to know that when the sick and injured were gathered from among the survivors there was no safe and adequate building in which they could be sheltered and cared for. The course once suggested, there was no question raised as to its' wisdom. There was appropriated sixty-five thousand dollars for the purpose of the erecting of such an institution. After necessary details had been worked out, ground was broken for the new building on the 26th of February, l89l. The committee in charge was fortunate in securing the services of Mr. George Orth, an architect of experience and ability, who left evidence of his skill in every section of the building. The building was completed on Ianuary 21, 1892. With transfer of the hospital to the local authorities the people of the valley assumed the management and maintenance of the institution. The hospital was named, "The Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital", a memorial from the people of the world to the people of the Valley of Iohnstown. It is a memorial to the victims of the l889 flood and the great Christian spirit that prevailed from far and wide to aid fellow suffers in their hour of need. The hospital doors were opened to the sick and injured of whatever race, creed or position. The field of services extended over wide areas of all sur- rounding counties. The first staff of Memorial was: Medical-Dr. F. Schill, Dr. W. E. Matthews, Dr. H. F. Tomb, Dr. L. H. Mayer, Surgical-Dr. W. B. Lowman, Dr. A. Wakefield, Dr. I. C. Sheridan, and Dr. C. E. Hannan. The same year a Nurses Training School was established. Miss Louisa P. Sims, was appointed superintendent. Her duties began with matters relating to the care and comfort of the patient, to management of all departments from the operating room to the boiler room. All business of the Hospital in any department passed thru her office. Executive duties kept her so busy, the position of matron was opened. An efficient lady, Mrs. Laura Young, Vv as made happy in her work of caring for matters relating to housekeeping. The training course for nurses occupied two years and was under the control of the Training School Com- mittee, who had the privilege of deciding the fitness of the candidates for this work. The nurses wore plain uniforms, and were ranked as assistant nurses their first year. The second year they were to perform any duty assigned to them by the chief nurse, even to head nurse position. How our curriculum has changed. Their training was mostly practical, with few lectures by the physicians. They gained most of their knowledge at the bedside from the local physicians, on their professional visits. At the end of two years the nurses were given a paper signed by the Training School and Hospital Authorities enabling them to choose their own field of nursing. Steady progress was made in the Training School. The graduating class usually ranged from 5 to l5 students. In 1905 the cirruculum was advanced and the training periods extended to three years. In l906 there were additions to the hospital, because CVMH CVMH HOSPITAL HISTORY of its limited capacity of 60. These additions brought the capacity to 140. With its limited capacity failing to keep pace with the rapid growth of the community, the hospital organization had, nevertheless, set up a wonderful record in public service. A main thought at this time was the need for a much larger institution. In l9l6 a great campaign for a building fund resulted in the subscription of nearly S140,00U.UU. Plans were in readiness for erection of a new hospital, due to the extended efforts of the people of the valley when there was heard a cry of "War!!" on everyones lips. The World War. The United States called to duty some of our best physicians. But we knew hospitals in every state were placed in the same position. The increased cost of con- struction and the difficulty in securing material delayed building operations. The second campaign for public funds began in 1923. In 1925 the structure was begun. It was decided that in order to accomodate the increase in the personnell, which a larger hospital deemed necessary, a new nurses home was needed, and accordingly, the present nurses home was constructed to take care of this need. The growth of the hospital with its newest equipment was a challenge to disease. There was the New Orthopedic and Psychiatric department. The Physio and Hydro therapy sections were enlarged and new equipment installed. There was a new Diagnostic Department, Obstetrics and Special Eye Department. These departments stood with trained personnell ready to serve all. Time slipped by, the hospital progressed with the years. In 1932, the hospital put into effect group hospitalization. The organization Was given credit for leading this very progressive and vital movement. Nineteen hundred and thirty-six there came great clouds, and rain again visited the valley, filling the rivers and streams to overflowing, causing a second Iohnstown Flood. This time they were ready. The hospital doors were open to all. Emergency radio systems were set up to the emergency lighting system, as electrical power to the city was cut. All available space was used for the construction of emergency wards. Thanks to the graduate nurses who volunteered their services. In the Flood of 1936 the hospital stood as a beacon to aid those in the dark. How proud everyone was they could help and show they were prepared for any emergency. In 1936 the hospital won national recognition by being given the National Hospital Day Award. Yearly the doors are open to public inspection on May 12th. They were also admitted to membership in the Hospital Service Associa- tion of Pennsylvania, early in l939. The cirruculum and standards of the Nurses Training School were con- stantly being elevated. They now have a Class A rating and the graduates are much in demand. The dream became more vivid. I could see a parade of many faces. To the crowd of workers who had given their all to elevating the hospital, I humbly paid my respects as a representative of the Class of '4l. Some faces appeared more clearly than others, because they belonged to the new and later years. In 1935 Mrs. Leota Swank became the Director and Superintendent of Nurses. Miss Iosephine Cope in 1939 serenly took her post as practical nursing 'in- structor, and 1940 gave a new science and theory instructor, Miss Iohanna Krauss. There were many others but these three were destined to lead the CVMH HOSPITAL HISTORY white parade that came annually from the hospital doors. The staff was con- stantly changing and increasing. A brilliant figure was Mr. H. G. Fritz, present superintendent of the hospital. Laurels to the years of service he has given C. V. M. H. The parade continued-There were the Seniors and Iunior Auxiliary which has during many years, made large contributions in the form of equip- ment..There was the ambulance, baby incubators, Deep X-Ray Therapy Equipment and the Sterilizer, lights, delivery tables. Their work and kindness never ended. It has marched thru the years. Suddenly the voice became a form, the Spirit of C. V. M. H. I was extended an invitation to see and watch the workers ot the institution. Going in the door I saw busy office workers. new patients being admitted, doctors and nurses serving humanity willingly. and happy in their work. Second Floor-Children department, happy faces, so much being done for our future generation. Bethlehem Steel section- industrial accidents, people injured trying to aid in the progress of a nation. On Third floor in a small annex of the building, I met a lovely old man, Mr. Edwin Horner, who had worked with Clara Barton, and came to Iohnstown with the Philadelphia division in 1889. He had since worked for the progress of C. V. M. H. Third and Fourth floors-private and ward cases, Fifth-the large obstetrical department. Sixth-the operating room, X-Ray and laboratory departments and on Seventh-studious brilliant student nurses learning the theory of nursing. Everywhere there were workers and progress. Then I awoke, dashed to my window, and was so very proud of C. V. M. H. Thanks to a dream. I. BEALS V .- A -R . 1 I . I - L 1 F F ' CVMH T H E B O A R D Dr. I. T, Taylor Dr. L. H IS. WUI!

B., of New York The scalpel shining in his hand. Begloved, begowned, and clean, Awaiting but his aides' command, He dominates the scene. With face alert, absorbed, austere, And ready mind and heart, The zero hour now is here, The game about to start. His task to cut, to staunch, to sew, And sewing, knows there lurks No germs, their ugly heads to show, To upset all the works. ' For she has sterilized the gown, And. kniie, and glove, and gauze, And rigorously has kept down All antiseptic flaws. Hers is a three-fold, endless task: At first the stage she setsg Then brings whatever he may ask, And woe, if she forgets. And finally she clears the mess, So he may start anew. Thus, scrub-nurse, much of his success In truth belongs to you. THE SMILING NURSE How like an actress in this drama real, She plays her part with unfailing care, Yet, a thousand sorrows she must conceal Beneath her gay assuming air. No task too great in her daily role, Her path of life with sacrifice filled, She strives to reach no faraway goal, Only that her pledges be fulfilled. How, like the Warmth of the summer's glee, The stormy clouds, she would disperse, Yet endless though her duties may be, She ever remains, the smiling nurse. --Andrew C. Harvey MY LADY IN WHITE She stands by my side, The Lady in White And watches my soul depart Frowning the while at the devils' delight As he gathers my ebbing heart. She is neither my sweetheart, My Wife or my mother As she stands by me, thru the night But only a sister who fights for a brother My faithful Lady in White. The World is four walls and heaven nearly The past and the present my bed, Time stands still as she watches me die Yet calmly she pillows my head. It is good just to know there is hidden from sight Grim tears that record my plight, And to feel the cool hands that comfort so well Of the fair little Lady in White. Oh nothing shall linger of birth to the grave But the force of the Lady in White Beginning or ending-there is no pretending- A nurse is God's spirit in Life.

OLD1-IAM We CVMH THE GOOD SHIP C. V. M. H. On September ll, l938, 43 probies stepped on board "The Good Ship C. V. M. to sail across the Sea of Student Nursing. It proved a rough and troublesome sea with many storms and treacherous rocks, but with the aid of our good pilots-our supervisors we kept sailing. Our first study of anatomy was accomplished on September 15th with the aid of dear old Tabby, the pet cat of the Nurses Home-Then on September l9th we became an actual part of the mechanism of the Good Ship--we were on Station for one whole hour. Our first recreation was a welcoming party held by the Intermediates with loads of fun for all on board, but dances, swimming, skating parties, Christmas parties and the Spring Formal soon followed to keep us occupied and entertained on our off duty hours. After each celebration we settled down and devoted our time to fishing for knowledge. Sometimes we become dis- couraged but it was as with grim determination that we clung to our purpose. Soon the background of examinations appeared on our horizon and lest our Ship should be parted we must strive hard to weather the Storm. Un- fortunately some did not study hard enough and subsequently campus went into effect at various intervals along the course. Our Seaworthy Ship sailed on smoothly and it was with great rejoicing that we received our caps on February 13th, 1939. We had safely passed our first milestone and were no longer Probies but now Iolly Iuniors. On March l7th a storm came up and Miss Richter proposed that we elect officers to guide our ship through the Storms that inevitably would follow. The following were elected-Dorris Strayer, Presidentg Kathryn Barron. Vice President: Helen Freidhoff, Secretary-Treasurer, Miss Cope, Class Advisor. With April showers came 17 days furlough, then backto our ship. As Iunior Students we had to take turn at night watch, to comfort and protect our passengers during the long dreary nights. And so passes our first year aboard "The Good Ship". On September 3rd, l939 We were elevated to corporals bv the addition of 2 bars to our cuffs. A new crew of 39 Probies stepped on board and we now became Inter- mediates. The Sea became rougher still with more rocks and shoals to watch. and more responsibilities to take, but our first triumph had given us courage to continue. We noticed the Seniors were becoming seasick. So parties were held, candy and sandwiches were sold and we successfully overcame the wave and sufficient funds were raised to hold the Spring Formal at the Sunnehanna Countrv Club, May 16, l94U, with Ierry Gray furnishing the music. Thus another eventful summer passed-we had now passed the second great milestone, and to celebrate the glorious occasion a cornroast was held at Pletcher's cottage on August 16th, at which time our two year old black shoes and hose were honorably cremated, we were now elevated to Seniors and dare don white shoes and hose for the last part of our journey. Overflowing with initiative a yearbook was proposed after many con- ferences, sleepless nights, much careful planning and tireless labor our initial edition was created and proved a huge success. On Ianuary l4th, 1941, Miss C. V. M. H. was born. Miss C. V. M. H. proved to be an 18 inch doll dressed as a nurse on which chances were sold. After earning S40 for our class she was adopted bv L. H. Mayer on Feb. l4th. On April l, due to excellent records the following were elected members of the Honor Society-Ieanne Beals, Mildred Whiteledge and Dorris Strayer. On the basis of character, leadership. scholarship and service. Then came another summer with more dances, thereby completing the third lea of our iourney. But before landing Commencement exerciseslwere held in September. We were now rwrepared to stern ashore in the Great Wide World to seek our fortunes and achieve RIICCDQQ in whatever channels seein-'ed smoothest to our personal likings and proved of greatest service to mankind.

F E RN LAMBERT Assistants BETTY OLDHAM ORPHA LONGWELL MILDRED WHITELEDGE ANNE WARSING BETTY LYNCH ACTIVITIES STUDENT ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION This year of 1941, being most eventful, brought forth many new ventures. One to be very proud of is the new Student Activities Association. Since nurses hours and leisure activities are limited, it was decided there should be an association to guide and direct activities of which nurses could take part. - The Student Activities Association was formed September 19405 its main object being to assist students to appreciate the value of wholesome group living through a program of social activities. Any student in our school of nursing is eligible to membership. Preliminary students are admitted auto- matically to the association by paying a fee of five dollars upon admission to the school, and entitles the student to all privileges of the association during her training. The first president of the association was Miss Ruth Flickinger. Other officers were as follows: Vice-President, Dorothy Ionesg Secretary, Dorris Strayer and Treasurer, Mildred Whiteledge. The association is a small student government with the Director of Nurses being managing director. lt is a government of nurses for nurses. May it progress, and carry its banners high as the years slip by. We, the class of "4l" have thoroughly enjoyed all the new activities and privileges extended to us. -- -ll sf AICTIVITIES ii HON ORARY SOCIETY Daily, thru the halls of C. V. M. H. marches the White Parade. Each nurse being a vital part of her own little sphere. Among these many there were a few destined to be leaders. Their work and efforts were noticed by many but never recognized with a material reward. One day a new thought came from the student body. By recognition of personal attributes of these leaders, a new spirit would surely develop. The idea was placed before hospital authorities and received with loud appraisal. The new society was to be called the "C. V. M. H. Honor Society". A society admitting to its doors only those proving themselves Worthy by their character, leadership, service and scholarship. These could not be bought with so many sheckles but were accfuired by effort, hours of long study, stimulated spirit and love and adaptation of work. The members are chosen, from the Senior and Intermediate classes and are based on character, which is determined by all capped students by ballot. Leadership and Service which is determined by ballot bv Director of Nursing, Director of Education, Director of Nursing Service and all supervisors. Scholarship which is determined by class records for one year. Each evaluation counting ZSW. Students may be eligible for membership four times during the course of their training. Having won the award previous does not make a student ineligible to win again. To win it inspires a higher level of service, promotes depth of character, develops leadership, and im- proves scholarship. This is surely an incentive for higher achievement. The first society was as follows: Ieanne Beals, Dorris Strayer, Mildred Whiteledae, Caroline Conrad, Dorothy Iones, and Grace Sandig. Miss Iones winning the highest award for scholarship achievement. The members received certificates and beautiful pins that must be won three times before they are kept per- manently. The last time being during the latter half of her Senior year. We bow to a new step in hospital organization in this year of 1941. I. BEALS LIVING ROOM The living room is a large, Well lighted and attractively furnished room on the first floor of the nurses home. It is the scene of most of our social functions, such as class meetings and dances. Among the furnishings of the room We have a nicholodian given to the Student Body by the Supervisors at our last Christmas party. The stu- dents often entertain their guests in the living room or they may spend the evening playing the piano, dancing to the music of the nicholodian or listening to the radio. KITCHEN "If you fill up-then clean up" is the motto of our kitchen which is located in the basement of the nurses home. The color scheme is red and white, and the cupboards are filled with multi-colored dishes and cooking utensils. There is a refrigerator and gas stove. A committee chosen by the president of the Student's Association is responsible for the food that is to be kept in the kitchen. The students enjoy immensely the spaghetti-suppers and fudge made in the kitchen. B. OLDHAM ACTIVITIES w W V 4 1 C V M H A THOUGHT IN THE NIGHT A call, a cry, a moan-now still Voices in the night. One calmly sleeping-resting The next, a terrible tight. All sleep or try as case may be, Throughout the lonely night Except the nurse on duty Who never sleeps 'til light. As night must fall-so comes the pains Discomforts, tortures, ills, A kindly Word, a constant watch Or just a tiny pill- All manners of relief employed To ease the comfortless. Oh, GOD!-please give us helping hands For vigils in the night And may We aid someone, somehow Before that streak of light Conveys to us the message Best now, for it is light. Release from strain is yours. Tonight again you'll Watch, Lingering beside the hopeless soul Who's fading quickly now. To us who have the Wealth of health And hands to do the Work, Give us the will to help on earth The less unfortunate. -P. Lambert Life is sweet just because of the friends We have made, and the things which in common we shareg We Want to live on, not because of ourselves, but because of the people who care. Its giving and doing for somebody else- On that all life's splendor depends. And the joy of the world, when you have summed it all up Is found in the making of Friends. CVMH YOUR ROOM MATE Who ambles in when you're on nights Slams the door-ot your sleep makes light, And makes you mad enough to tight? Your Room Mate. Who wears your hose, your shoes, your hat, Your clothes, if she's not too fat, And will not even stop at that? Your Room Mate. Who cheers you up When you are blue? When you are sick takes care of you And when you're broke, Will see you through? Your Room Mate. If nobody smiled, and nobody cheered, and nobody helped us along If every man looked after himself, and good things Went to the strong, It nobody cared just a little for you, and nobody thought about me. And we all stood alone in the battle of lite, What a dreary old world it would be. CVMH MY OPERATION Listen my friends, that you may hear Of the operation I had this year. In the year '41, Iune twenty-five I wonder if I'd still be alive. I came to the hospital and was put to bed, Without even as much as a pain in my head. I guess my pain must have left from fright, Because when I came I felt alright. I lay in bed, gazing here and there, Knowing tomorrow kept drawing near. The nurses all smiled each time they'd come, Yet my feet and hands kept trembling some. The interne came to look at me, And the questions he asked like a 3rd degree. You'd think I'd committed an awful crime, And was sentenced to jail for a whole lifetime. Now that wasn't so bad as I soon found out When the started tossing me aboutp My eyes, my ears, my tummy and nose, My legs and arms and even my toes. Now that was over and I lay awhile, But soon a nurse came with a friendly smile. But in her hand she carried a pan, With a rubber tube and small white can. "Hospital Routine" to them I could see But only a pain in the neck to me But then what else was I to do I was at their mercy, and must see it through. What seemed like a Week, but was only aniglit My operation day dawned clear and bright. I wasn't afraid but trembled some As they wheeled me into the operation room. The doctor came with gowns and masks With assuring smiles went about their tasks. Then I must have slept or dozed, I'd say For I couldn't only hear them so far away. Then I heard them say, "It's over now." And I felt myself being moved somehow. Then when I fully became aware, The doctor and nurses were standing there. "It's over now", for them that's sure But, oh! what pain I did endure As I lay there on the flat of my back Wanting to turn this way and that. My side-it pained, and my back had an ache And I wanted the water I couldn't take. I got the water-but not saying how! For they seemed to think I must have it some- how. So with tubes and needles they entered my legs, Worse than anything were these plagues. Since I couldn't move. I just suffered then Like a thousand devils poking pins in my skin. Then with hypodermics I got relief, And fell into a troubled sleep. Only to wake to that gnawing pain To find I must go through the same thing again. How glad I was, the day I learned I didn't have much pain when I tried to turn. Then came the day I could sit up in bed Without feeling as if I were loosing my head. After that I began to feel, just swell, But even at that I couldn't rest very well. For it seems of energy, nurses never lack, Always taking my temperature, or rubbing my back. Or bringing me water to wash my face, Or fixing my bed to stay in place, Or bringing a bed-pan, or water to drink Gosh! they hardly gave me time to think. It's all very nice and they treat you swell, But to be out of bed, I started to yell. So finally they decided to let me out. I was so glad I could almost shout. But you can't imagine my dismay When I found my legs wanted to give way. As I sat on the chair and rested my head I wished I were lying back in bed. The doctor came again today To tell me no longer I need stay, So now I'm trying to walk around, To get my feet used to solid ground. Now as I look back o'er the past twelve days There are many questions my mind would raise. But I can say to my friends and kin It wasn't as bad as it might have been. God bless doctors, nurses, hospitals too, For if you aren't well, they'll fix you up like new. I can say with all my heart, it really isn't bad, For it it makes me feel so well, it's worth the pain I had. For everyone has been good to me, The nurses are marvelous as they can be. So I really should be ashamed to say "I'm glad I'm going home today". C V M H IT IS NOT EASY apologize To keep on trying begin over To avoid mistakes admit error To forgive and forget be unseltish To keep out of the rut take advice To make the most of a little be charitable To maintain a high standard be considerate To recognize the silver lining But it always pays SENIORS FAREWELL Farethee Well, Farethee Well, friendsp As seniors We now say good-bye Class of "4l"--C. V. M. H. Our leaving, will cause us to sigh. We hope by our lives to prove We have succeeded, Your training and teaching Will always be heeded. Doctors fine, supervisors so trueg Our best Wishes are yours every day, We will always be thinking of you, For We cherish this Work and We sayg A thousand thousand times We'11 Wish We could be there Your joys and success in future years With you share.

E i 5 s P , 1. Ei i ill. ' ll Q t N may Mr. Edwin D. Horner has been a familiar figure about the hospital since its establishment in 1892. He was sent here during the Iohnstown Flood of 1889 from the Clara Barton Hospital in Washington, D. C. He worked with Clara Barton under the supervision of the Red Cross and aided in establishing the present Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital. For a period of time he acted as purchasing agent for the establishment and then later was appointed chief engineer, which position he held until 1933, when he retired from active service. At the present time he acts in an advisory capacity and makes his home in the hospital. H. Srucxmr C V M H TT SLIPS THAT PASSED IN THE NIGHT We'l1 never forget: Pim1ot's interpretation of B. M.

CVMH ARCHITECTS PICTURE OF ANATOMY OR THE FRAMEWORK OF THE SILLY SET-UP BY FLICKINGERIMER AND LAMBERTY The topic of my discussion this day is anatomy. I feel that I am in a position to speak on this subject convincingly because I have a few bones and muscles myself. As for a circulatory and nervous network and a bit of the old gray matter, well, I have a tiny bit of that too??? I have not mastered the art of wiggling my ears but I can at least raise an eyebrow. Now take the appendages. I have at least four. two arms and two legs, and together they form a good support, normally. I must admit that they are slightly disjointed when attached to skates of any kind, but this may happen to any one of you-at which point I could discuss very convincingly the abnormalities of anatomy, inasmuch as contusions and aches are now my lot at this time. Now let us take up the subject of embryology or "How I Came to Be What I Am". I feel that I am in a position to speak on this subject convincingly because I was once embryo myself. There two kinds of births, upper berths and lower berths. Figure it out for yourself. Next there are tissues-fine and coarse, blood vessels-for and against foxygenation of coursel, bodies-foreign and civilized, bones-straight and narrow and rough and tough. Then back to your senses, there are two-sense and nonsense, the later of which I am well supplied. Then too, we must not forget the crazy bone, the bridge of your nose, the cap of your knee, the ball of your foot, the nail of your toe, one centralized button, the arch of the eye- brow, the soul of the foot, the palm of the hand, the gateway of the mouth, the sway oi the hips, the washboard of your back, the calf of the leg, the root irah! rahll of your hair, the cut of your figure, the canal and drum of your ear, the swallow of your throat. the apple of dear old Adam, the pit of your arm, your windpipe, the box of your ear, the lope of your gait, the length of your stride, the buds and lash of your tongue, the line of your map, the cut of your blade, the collar of your bone, the pump of your heart, the hip of your joint, the grippe of your hand, the hang oi your trapezius, the bump of your knowledge, the ring of your voice, the crown of your head, the knock of your knees, and what a heel. Also, we have scalpels and scapulas. There common factor is blades. Then there are specks that appear before the eyes when you don't wear specs and those that protect you from seeing specks. E And we have three kinds of reports, namely case, conference, and gun reports. r Then there are nerves. Some folks we find, are very nervy. We can't get the link between this expression and true nerves but we deem it necessary to refrain from changing the expression. This discussion profiteth us nothing, but, it is nevertheless a discussion. CVMH Dr. L. R. Altemus, Iohnstown, Pa. Dr. B. A. Braude, Iohnstown, Pa. I. P. Replogle, Iohnstown, Pa.
