The teaching ol Saint Paul, "And now abideth laith, hope, charity, these
three, but the greatest ol' these is c'harity,'l established lor all time the principle
that our inward spiritual lile ntust be joined by some outward expression ol
lile toward one's fellow nien. lt was thus that ciare ol' the sick was introduced
early in the Christian era as one ol' the special duties ol people who had dedi-
eated their lives to God.
Today, providing care lor the sick continues to be as Vital it "calling" as
it ever has been. In this world ol' darkness and sickness it ollers a niost challenging
ministry which allords perhaps the best opportunity for witnessing ell'et'tix'ely
to our lellow nten. It was this that lflorence Nightingale 1'CCOgIll7Sd when she
wrote "ll we do not have the true religious feeling and purpose, hospital lile,
the highest of all things with these, bectoines without them at inere routine
and bustle. And a very hardening routine and bustle."

Senivr Cla A Hi to y
Dear S. C. H.
My how you've changed! The first time we saw you 'way back on September ll. l95l,
you looked quite different to us than you do now. You seemed very strange and unfamiliar -
even a little bit frightening. lYonder how we looked to you - green probies, thrilled with the
thought of beginning nurses' training, but very confused by it all.
lt seemed a welcome relief after the hurry and scurry of the day to gather together
that first evening for the big and little sister party. The friendliness and assurance of our big
sis's certainly did much to allay our fears and make us feel welcome in our new home.
NVe were soon to learn that in order to become nurses we had to know more than how to
give a good backrub. Anatomy, pharmacology, microbiology, psychology, and many other
"ologies" were soon whirling around in our heads in hopeless confusion. In the midst of all
this. we went on the floors for the first time to polish up on our newly acquired skills of unit
cleaning and bedmaking. Soon we were testing our abilities of giving baths and backrubs.
NVere it not for the watchful eyes and ever present instruction of our supervisors we never
would have learned those complicated procedures.
The Christmas holidays provided a welcome break from the grind of work and classes.
NVe wondered a little what our first Christmas away from home would be like, but soon
discovered that with all the teas, parties, and holiday "doings" there was plenty of "spirit
Our next hurdle was the giving of medicines - "the right medicine to the right patient
at the right time." Our memories of learning to give shots are somewhat painful but we
willingly suffered these minor irritations to improve in skill.
Finally, the long awaited day arrived when we marched proudly down the aisle to receive
our caps. We felt self-conscious at first and were somewhat awed by our new responsibilities,
but were glad to exchange the title of "green probies" for freshmen.
XVith this new distinction we started our special services of diet kitchen, central supply,
surgery, and obstetrics. Rotation lists from then on were eagerly awaited from week to week
as we wondered who would be the next to embark on some new service. X'Vhat a thrill
to see our names there!
Spring came early that year when we new freshmen proudly presented our first party
on March 20. Everyone seemed to enjoy the performance given by the S. C. H. "'l'hespians",
especially the talent shown by our "Shene sifterf'
Summer vacations passed all too rapidly and soon we were accepting the privileges and
responsibilities of "big sisters" and juniors. Being in charge on l'Nfs' really made us feel
important - especially when we knew the supervisor was never far away.
The pangs of separation were felt in February l952 when the first nine pulled up stakes
at Swedish Covenant and settled down at Children's Memorial Hospital.
Henrici's restaurant in the llferchandise Mart played host to our junior-Senior Banquet in
April. The highlight of the evening was the challenging and thought provoking message brought
by President T. XV. Anderson.
Soon after this Cook County Hospital claimed our nine adventurers who began their
studies in psychiatric and contagious diseases nursing.
Our senior year started with a bang as we met to discuss such important matters as
uniforms, class colors, verse, and song. It didn't seem possible that we were already seniors!
XVe finally got around to holding our "summer picnic" on Oct. 28 in the comfort of the
recreation room. The evening started out in a lighthearted mood, but ended in a serious vein
as we gathered around the piano and turned our thoughts to our spiritual needs.
january, l95i. came and with it the thrill of knowing this was "our year." .X visit to
President Anderson's home on the 25th of February proved enriching as we saw colored
slides of Europe and enjoyed an evening of fellowship together.
Banquets were really in style this year with the first one held at the Spinning Wlheel
on the 2nd of April planned by the Student Council. The Junior-Senior Banquet was enjoyed
in the pleasant atmosphere of Nielson's Restaurant. The inspiring program which the juniors
had planned so well for us will not soon be forgotten. On june with the alumni were
hostesses at their annual banquet in honor of the seniors. It gave us rather a strange feeling
to realize that soon we would be called alumni as well.
XVe want to take this opportunity to thank our class advisor, Mrs. John Bennett, for
all her understanding and patience during these three years. Her friendly interest in our class
has meant a great deal to each one of us.
And so, S. C. H., we soon will be leaving you, but the rich experiences which you
have given us, and the friendships we have made are valuable possessions which we shall

Senior Cla A Prvplaecy
The scene is a hospital room at the Swedish Covenant
Hospital. The year is 2006. In the room we lind the
former student, Ella Halla and Elsa Knudsen, who have
both fractured their hips.
As the scene opens Elsie H. is reading a letter she
has received from her former classmate Millie Keller.
Elsie: "Oh, listen to this Elsa, lloesn't that sound just
like Millie. 'After being here in Bolivia for forty
eight years, and reaching the ripe old age of seventy
three, I have become just like the people here with
only two speeds - slow and stop.' "
Elsa: "Oh yes, doesn't that sound just like hcl. Say,
isn't lxlfjlllll Klint on the nlission field too?"
Elsie: 'AOh yes, but didn't you know her nane isn't Klint
anymore. She married a plumber out on the field."
Elsa: "A plumber! That ought to suit her line. Remember
the time when she flooded the sterilizers batik in
O.B ,... Boy, was that funny! There she stood,
ankle deep in water and mopping like mad. And all
the time the water was leaking down to third lloor.
Elsie: "Oh, those fourth floor memories. Remember the
time Audrey Mouthaan's boyfriend snuck up the
back way and they were overheard talking. Her
boyfriend said: 'Hey Aud, do your eyes bother you?
Aud told him 'No'. XVell, they sure bother me,' he
said. I wonder which one that was - Andy, Rog or
Art. She surely had the boyfriends."
Elsa: "And who was it Elsie, that we used to call 'the
stork? Oh yes. Nystrom. Remember how she used to
get called out for sections night after night. I guess
they knew she was the motherly type."
Elsie: "How many children does she have anyway -
eight, wasn't it?"
Elsa: "I believe so, but I think Carol johnson beat her.
Do you realize she had ten children, fholding up
her knottingj and this is the forty-third bonnet I've
knit for that familyfl
Elsie: "Oh, this cast is tight. Since Marilyn Stark went
into retirement they certainly don't have a very
good E. R. supervisor. This is my second cast, tool"
Elsa: "They did a good job on us in surgery, though."
Elsie: "XVe were i11 good hands."
Elsa: "Yes, with Evelyn Rohrbach as the anesthetist and
Dorothy Hultberg supervising the whole thing, how
could we lose?"
Elsie: "I suppose eventually they will transfer us to
Nelson Hall. They say that Carolyn Swalin will have
to retire from her job as supervisor there pretty
Elsa: "Well, she's had a full life."
Elsie: "Oh, here's an interesting little tidbit, Elsa, listen:
'I heard that Carolyn Coleman won her last trophy
in a tennis tournament held down in Rio de Jan-
iero last monthf Isn't it funny how Carolyn mar-
ried that Parish fellow and how they won tennis
tournaments together all over the country. and to
think she won her last trophy at the age of seventy-
I wonder whatever happened to Dot Vander Veer,
she was always such a tennis fan."
Elsa: "Oh didn't you know - she became the physical
education instructor out at Westmont College."
Elsie: "Oh, really?"
fSeveral students go by the doorj
Elsa: "Have you noticed how pert these students look?
I guess Arnell and Elna Pete really make them toe
the mark. How long have they been superintendent
and assistant now?"
Elsie: f'XYell, nigh unto forty years, I guess. Let's see,
who else have they got on the staff here from our
Elsa: "XVell, there's Verlyn Hultman, occupational ther-
apist at Nelson Hall."
Elsie: "And don't forget Nancy Thomson, head of C,S,
She always did clean a mean steri-tube.
Then there's Goldie Fooy, supervisor on 2 South."
l Senior Cla A Prophecy I
Elsa: "Dorothy Dobbs is on fourth floor, And I helieve
that Ille Pulins is still leaching pharmacology to
Elsie: "And don't forget the housemothers over at the
dorm - Joyce Parker and Lois Peterson."
fConnie johnson, present supervisor on 2 North,
hobbles into the room.j
Elsa: "And last but not least - here comes our own
Connie johnson, supervisor on 2 North."
Connie: "How are you today my clears?"
