Acute Need Told

as Red Cross

Asks for More Nurse's Aides

"Nurses' Aides are urgently needed
now," Mrs. Bradley Patton, Red
Cross Nurses' Aide Chairman, said,
as a new class for Nurses Aides and
the names of the members of the
present 'graduating' class were an-
There have been no formal gradu-
ation and capping ceremonies for the
past few classes because the pressing
need for aides has necessitated the
ruling that they may graduate as
soon as they have put in the re-
quired number of hours. After 80
class and practical work hours,
Nurses' Aides may wear their caps
and Red Gross pins.
Members of the present Nurses'
Aide class are Olive Whitaker, Joan
Jarow, Nancy Reber, Kathryn Bur-

ton, Margaret Kohr, Phyllis Laufe,
Harriet Aiken, Mary Louise Kim-
ball, Gladys Birnbaum, Reva Send-
ler, Shirley Shaye, Jeanette Cole,
Pat Carnege, Eileen Phillips, Nita
Carritte, Ann Donnelly, Virginia
Stone, Jane Schoff, Marilyn Gallen-
ter, Melva Fox, Marjorie Hewson,
Dorothy Watson, and Barbara Grif-
Those women who are qualified1
Nurses' Aides now are urged to put1
in more work at the hospital, espe-
cially on Sunday mornings, when
the shortage of nurses is particularly
acute. They may work at either
University or St. Joseph's hospital
and hours will be arranged that are
most convenient for the Nurses,
Aides volunteering their services.

was a member of the Stylus Club
and Kappa Aipha Theta sorority.
Since her graduation she has had
both a prominent and varied life.
On Staff Of Detroit Free Press
After leaving the University she
went to work on the Jackson Citizen.
Later she went to Detroit and joined
the staff of the Detroit News. Leav-
ing Detroit, Miss Avery went to
France where she worked on the
Paris Herald.
On returning to Detroit she came
to the Free Press as society editor.
The News offered her a position as
assistant womens editor and she
went to that paper, returning two
years later to the Free Press to head
its new, enlarged women's depart-
ment. She held that position for
about five years, administering the
affairs of what was probably the
largest women's department of any
newspaper in the United States.
Planned To Follow Troops Overseas
When our troops went to England,
Miss Avery felt that she had to con-
tribute something to the war effort
and that her work in helping to
follow the activities of the AWVS
and in promoting various war activi-
ties among women was not sufficient,
She literally camped on the door=
step of the managing editor until
he sent her to England to get rid
of her.
From there she followed the Army
to the beaches of Normandy. She
has been constantly at or near the
front ever since and was the first
woman war correspondent to send
a dispatch out of Germany.
Writes Special Articles
In addition to her daily and Sun-
day dispatches to the Free Press she
has found time to write several spe-
cial articles for the New York Times
