For a Trained Nurse.
The following plea for a trained nurse
for University students has been handed
the Daily for publication:
Why should the University have a
nurse? What would she do? Where
would she have her headquarters? Ho o
many patients could she care for in a
day? Would she not interfer with the
employment of other nurses who de-
pend upon the student population for
patronage?
These and other questions have been
asked and answered many times since
the announcement of a lawn party to
be held on Saturday next in the inter-
ests of this cause.
In order to make these points clear
1n the public the following statement
is made. Students, like other people,
are subject to short, sharp attacks of
illness; while these la.t the suffering
and sense of need are as great if not
greater than during nore prolonged and
serious illnesses. They are away from
home and its comforts, both of which
are missed most at such times. They
are dependent upon room-mate and
boarding mistress for attention; both
may be inexperienced, and certainly
are too busy to assume such responsi-
bility and care. The illness is likely
to be too short to make it worth while
to hunt up and install a nurse, and the
attack is often' too familiar to make
" the services of doctor necessary. They
do not even need a nurse in constant
attendance. A nurse trained to such
service would in an hour put things
straight, take the responsibilty off the
shoulders of the busy room-mate and
relieve the woaried householder, bur-
dened with her load of cares. Another
hour of attendance toward evening
would be sufficient to arrange things
or the night.
It is to do just such work as this for

not work nights except in important
cases of emergency. She would have
her headquarters at the Barbour gym-
nasium, when the janitress n-ould re-
cord telephone and other calls for her
in her absence.
A middle-aged, motherly woman
'would be employed (we should hope to
find such among the graduates of the
University school), who could care for
the boys as well as the girls of tse
University.
In the past nurses have not often been
employed for thesec ases, and they are
'ot likely to be in the future, hence
the employment of a "student visiting
nurse" cannot interfere with the de-
mand for trained nurses to attend pa-
tients suffering from serious and pro-
longed illnesses.
Can we raise the $300 necessary to
pay the salary of a nurse for six
months? This is a question which can
only be answered by the faculty, the
students themselves and the people of
Ann Arbor and vicinity interested in
this matter.
By the great courtesy and benevo-
lence of Prof. and Mrs. Russell, their
beautiful grounds will be opened for
an entertainment on Saturday after-
noon next. Music and refreshments
have been arranged for, and there willi
be opportunity for a great good time.
If the aveather is unsuitable for an
out-of-door fete, it will be held in the
University gymnasium and an hour or
so of dancing will make up for the loss
thus sustained.
Please come in large numbers. Buy
your admission and refreshment tickets
beforehand if you can and so make it
possible to raise this three hndred dol-
lars.
