Nurses' Aides





At Red Cross
The nurse's aide course, listed in
the war bulletin catalogue, has been
reorganized in that the hours listed
in the catalogue have been made
flexible in order to accommodate
more people and the first meeting
of this course will be held at 4 p.m
Monday, Oct. 12, in the Red Cross
Headquarters at North Hall.
The volunteer nurse's aide course,
given by the' American Red Cross,
under the supervision of the Univer-
sity School of Nursing, has been or-
ganized on the University campus
and will be given this fall, starting
October 19, for two hours credit
The course is designed to answer the
call for 50,000 nurses' aides.
The Red Cross has been conscious
of the growing shortage of nurses,
which has been a particular prob-
lem in Ann Arbor, because of the
large state hospital here, from which
institution many nurses have been
called into the armed forces.
Aides Release Nurses
Volunteer nurses' aides have been
called in to assist the unspecialized
routine duties of the trained nurses
in our hospitals and thus release
nurses for the highly technical work
that their training alone can do.
The call is urgent and it is almost
an ultimatum because University
women must realize soon that some
kind of war work now has become
as essential to their daily programs
as are their academic studies.
There are certain basic require-
ments which volunteers must ful-
fill, prior to their acceptance. They
must be between the ages of 18 and
50. They must pass a thorough phys-
ical examination. They must agree
to accept no remuneration for their
services. They must promise to do-
n.te at least 150 hours of service a
year. They must wholeheartedly
agree to accept the discipline of a
service which, by necessity, must
maintain a high standard.
Divided In Two Units
The procedure of the training pro-
gram is as follows: 80 hours will be
divided into two units. Unit one
consists of 35 hours of classroom
work and demonstrations. Unit two
will consist of 45 hours of supervised'
practice work on the wards of desig-
nated hospitals. Classes are limited
to 30 students and the teacher is a
registered nurse.
The services of these graduate
nurses' aides will continue as long
as, they are needed, which probably
means until after the war is over.

Art On The Hoof
NEW YORK, Oct. 10.- (A)- Millie
Hull, the Bowery's tattoo queen, is
pretty glum about business, what with
the war taking all the soldiers and
sailors away.
"What do you 'spose we get now?"
she asked with scorn. "Women who
want lines like stock seams tattooed
on the back of their legs.
"I ask you, what kinda art is that?"

Some fellows buy their wives pret-
ty things in the' hope it will leave
them speechless.
Cooking utensils are playing their
part in the scrap metal drive. Pot
luck for Uncle Sam.
The nickel which went into the 1941
output of , nickel-plated tableware
would have supplied all the nickel
needed in production of 43 tanks.

Novel Annual



I h




The residents of Helen Newberry
will hark back to nursery rhyme days
at their annual Mother Goose Initia-
tion Dinner to be held at 6 p. m.
Tuesday for welcoming the newcom-
ers to the house.
The important occasion will be
even more prominent by the presence
of Dean Lloyd, Dean Bacher, and
Dean Perry who will, for the evening,
abandon their academic duties to
assume the roles of judges during the
presentation of skits between courses
of the dinner.
Each newcomer is to enact a char-
acter from Mother Goose, and the
cleverest and most original perform-
ance, deemed by the judges, will re-
ceive a prize.
Chairman Jean Mills, '44 and her
assistants, Dorothy Schloss, '43; Obe-
line Elser, '45; and Charlotte Muel-
ler, '45 have planned the- party to be
extra gala because it alone will rep-
resent the three banquets which the
house usually holds each year.
This plan to eliminate two of the
three events was announced by Betty
Jane Awrey, '43, newly-elected treas-
urer of the house, for the purpose of
cutting down on expenses during the
war effort.
