Women's Defense Committees
Urge Students' Physical Fitness

As the basis for our victory pro-
gram all over the country and es-
pecially on campus, it is the obliga-
tion and duty of every student to
keep physically fit. The Declaration'
of the Women's Defense Committee
makes clear the point that if civilian
defense work is to be successful, each
and every person must develop and
maintain the best health status pos-
With physical fitness we can have
greater endurance and efficiency,
and with the facilities offered here
at the University, there is every op-
portunity for any student to work
towards the best health status and to
maintain it.
Health Is Important
In order to be a good risk and to
do good work in defense program
therefore, it is imperative that every-
one attain and retain physical fit-
ness. Second semester, the Depart-
ment of Women's Physical education
will offer three important courses of
vital interest to every woman inter-
ested in doing her utmost for na-
tional defense.
Body conditioning will be given for
the purpose of general muscle ton-
ing through rhythmic exercise and
games. Recreational leadership, a
combination of lectures, practical
work in games, mixers, folk-dancing,
community singing and dramatics
will be offered for people planning to
work with the community group, and
these persons are in demand by com-
munities everywhere.
Co-recreational leadership train-
ing, for both men and women, will be

given as a combination of lectures
and practical work in which stu-
dents will get actual experience in
leading and mixing groups in the
following activities: games for social
recreation, games for air raid shel-
ter periods; golf, country and ball-
room dancing, story telling and com-
munity singing.
With the opportunities before each
and every student, there is little rea-
son for not taking advantage of
them, here and now, when we are
most needed-to insure victory for

nursing schools cannot hope to meet
the demand at their present rate,
which is 23,000 caps each year. To
supplement their programs, there-
fore, the Office of Civilian Defense
in cooperation with the American
Red Cross is offering a course to
train women as nurses' aides.
It takes three years to become a
registered nurse, but the nurses' aide
course which will be given by Red
Cross chapters and local hospitals
will follow a syllabus planned for 80
hours of classroom work and ward
To Do Routine Work
Aides completing the course will
take over the routine labors and sim-
pler duties of the trained nurses,
such as making beds, bathing and
feeding patients, taking temperatures
and pulses, observing changes in the
patients' conditions and seeing to
their general comfort.
The trained nurses thus released
can concentrate on actual adminis-
tration of treatment and their duties
in more skilled capacities such as
operating, therapy, and supervision
of infant nurseries.
Each woman who completes the
course leading to the nurses' aide
certificate must pledge herself to
do at least 150 hours of hospital serv-
ice each year, preferably during a tom bay
