Money Will Go To French Hospital
The Carnival is being given in re-
sponse to the French nurses' plea to
rebuild their hospital and school in
Bordeaux, France, which was taken
over by the Germans during the war.
The Florence Nightingale School of
Nursing suffered particular devasta-
tion when the Germans found it was
the Memorial of the American Nurses,
sponsored by the American Nurses'
Association long before World War
II. Mattresses, sheets, beds, pillow-
caves, and all other essential equip-
ment was confiscated. All of the
ground floor of the school was rav-
aged and rendered useless.
When the French finally retook
the hospital after the German arm-
ies had left, general disorder pre-
vailed, but within fifteen days after
the evacuation, requests for admis-
sion to the school began to come in
again. The memorial, though weak
and disorganized was still alive.
Supplies Are Sent Regularly
Here in the United States. Nursing
Schools are again offering their help.
Five boxes of nurses' uniforms have,
already been sent to the school. In
New York, the Presbyterian Hospital
School of Nursing has taken over the
responsibility of reequipping the li-
brary of the Bordeaux School. New
Jersey and other states have started
to raise money to purchase other
needed equipment.
