Syretha Squires Tells Of Floating Hospital,
Public Health Program In Newfoundland
By ALICE FRETZ
A pioneer in an out-post island ist
Miss Syretha Squires, R.N., director
of nurses in the Newfoundland De-
partment of Public Health and Wel-3
fare, who is now a guest at Stockwell1
Miss Squires began her work as a]
public health nurse in the virgin soil
of Newfoundland four years ago with
two nurses to assist her. Today she
directs 105 nurses in a far more gen-l
eralized health program which co-1
ordinates public nursing with mid-'
wifery and includes 14 20-bed cot-
tage hospitals scattered throughout
the island. Most of these hospitals
are electrically lighted and steam-
heated, and are run by two registered
nurses and three students. Each
building is equipped with an iron
lung donated by Lord Nuffield.
Note Education Lack
Because of the great lack of health
education or education of any kind,
for Newfoundland has only denom-
inational schools and only a few can
afford them, 200 people out of every
100,000 suffer from T.B. For that
reason the paying of only a small
yearly fee per family for medical
care is a great boon to them.
The good ship "Lady Anderson"
must not be slighted in this account,
for Miss Squires is very proud of her
floating hospital, which is staffed
constantly with a doctor, nurse, cap-
tain and crew. "It's a beauty," she
said pridefully. Work on the boat is
very hard, two years being the most
Ushers To Sign Up
Ushering committee of Theatre
Arts is to sign up now for the Child-
ren's Theatre plays. The lists are in
the Undergraduate Office of the
League; and one play will be given
two performances today.
that is asked of any nurse. "They
either develop a sea-sickness psycho-
sis or they come to me with their
rouge all washed off and beg for a
transfer," she added.
However, whether on the boat orl
plane, or dog sled, nurses have plenty
of hardships and emergencies to cope
with, for beyond the ordinary heavy
duties that nurses have toward these
people in the adventurous occupa-
tions of whaling, sealing and fishing,
there are the rugged 4,000 miles of
coast line where thick fogs and heavy
storms reign. Nurses have been
known to be snowbound in some
backwoods settlement for two weeks
at a stretch.
We asked Miss Squires if she had'
any narrow escapes, and she gave
us a masterpiece in understatement.
"Oh, nothing very exciting has hap-
pened. I was thrown into the water
a couple of times, and the horse and
sleigh I was riding fell through the
ice once." We heard from other
sources, however, tales of emergency
surgery and praises of Miss Squire's
courage and skill.
At present, the nurses are busy
with war duties, as refugees from
torpedoed ships keep coming in and
war supplies flow out. Some of our
American men are stationed there
also, and Miss Squires says that many
of them could use our Red Cross
sweaters in that cold climate. How-
ever, during her informal after-din-
ner talk in the Stockwell lounge re-
cently, she warned against taking on
too much work, as there was no sense
in becoming over-tired. "My advice
to you young things is to stick to your
studies," she said, "this is no time
to flunk. Put on the brakes, do
what you have to do, well, and your
chance will come."

There is no little red schoolhouse
for Eleanor Brooks, 19-year-old in-
fantile paralysis victim, but that
doesn't mean she doesn't attend
Miss Brooks became stricken with
the dreaded disease in 1935 and it
was a few years later that people
noticed she was a talented artist.
When she regained the use of her
hands, she began taking lessons in
drawing and clay modeling. She has
progressed so rapidly in these few
years that critics predict a fine fu-
ture for this girl who vows any suc-
cess she may have will be through
the efforts of the National Founda-
tion for Infantile Paralysis.
Dimes and dollars collected from
residents of Washtenaw County have
made it possible for Miss Brooks to
have a special tutor twice a week.
Mrs. C. D. Sellards, former art in-
structor at Ann Arbor High School,
began her bi-weekly visit to the
Brooks' home on Mary Street in
October, 1940. She found her apt
pupil was interested in almost every
medium of art.
Miss Brooks is equally talented in
water colors, oil, fresco, and clay,
work. Her interest in art has helped
her to adjust herself in life. Many
of her paintings are life studies. For
this, she calls upon her father,
mother, three bothers, and sister to
pose for her.
Completely crippled while in the
eighth grade at Tappan School, Miss
Brooks would be a sophomore at the
present time if she were able to at-
tend the University. She has made
an unusual recovery from poliomyel-
itis for her hands are perfectly cured.
This disease will strike any part of
the body and often the healing must
take place in the early stages of par-
Besides her art work, Miss Brooks
keeps herself busy reading and listen-
ing to current events over her short-
wave radio. She is learning to knit
and hopes to soon be able to help our
boys with a sweater or pair of socks.
This month the National Founda-
tion for Infantile Paralysis has start-
ed its "March of Dimes" campaign.
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and civilian
defense workers are all doing their
share to contribute to a worthy cause.
Soon to be inagurated is a plan in
which the National Association of
Theaters will take part. Booths will
be placed in the lobbies and pictures
will be shown depicting the serious-
ness of this dreaded affliction,
This year, the student body of the
University will not take active par-
ticipation in the campaign because
of confliction with the examination
schedule but you can contribute ten
cents to the National Foundation and
save another courageous Eleanor
Brooks from the handicaps of this

i Iowever, the most impressive thing about
it is the quality of the fur coats. They are
superb from a standpoint of style, work-
manship and richness of pelts. And when
you think of the scarcity of imported pelts
and rapidly rising prices, it's a golden
opportunity which you should not miss.
