Campus Clothes
T o Be Marked
Fashion designers are glorying in
the post-war status of college cam-
puses this year, and are turning out
new flattering ensembles that are ac-
tually versatile.
Emphasis for the new creations are
on accessories, and the versatility of
the campus clothes lies in the ability
to "dress up" or "dress down" the
basic dress. This is the challenge that
the belts, bags, and boots meet.
Belts are wide this year. They are
popular for the feminine lines they
create. Saddle-stitched pigskin belts
are favorites for classroom wear,
along with heavy brass-buckled rus-
set cowhide and leather bound burlap
waist measures. For dates, the basic
dress may be "dressed up" with sil-
ver or gold suede or kid belts.
Bags are large and they all feature
shoulder straps. The cowhide book-
bags are ideal for classes. Bright col-
ored chamois and wool felt draw-
string bags are equally popular.
Purses for an informal evening are

Representatives of Ten Schools
Seek Typical American Nurse


Representatives of the alumnae as-
sociations of ten - nurses' training
schools, to commemorate the fiftieth
anniversary of the founding of the
Amgerican Nurses' Association, on
Sept. 2, 1896, are seeking a typical
American nurse who can be intro-
duced tomorrow at the Biennial Nurs-
ing Convention in Atlantic City, N.J.
During the past fifty years various
improvements have come about in
nursing, medicine, education and leg-
islation. Today's typical hurse is us-
ually a graduate of one of the 1300
state-approved schools of nursing,
young in years but old enough to
have seen service either with the
armed services or in civilian life.
She is cool, competent, efficient,
responsible, and carries great pres-
tige with the letters R.N. after her
name. Fifty years ago the nurses
were semblances of curios, combined
with missionary, saintly, and adven-
turess attributes. She was a mature
women whose life was dictated by the
ethical code of the present society.
Today, the standard professional
nurse's course is two-and-a-half
years, and is often combined with a
university program leading to a de-
gree after four or five years with

many taking advanced studies for
specialization. Today's nurse is reg-
istered under state laws which pro-
tect the public as well as the nurse.
At the present time more nurses are
employed in institutions for service or
education than in any other type,
though public health, industrial nurs-
ing and private practice are claiming
many. She must be prepared to deal
with both mental and physical condi-
tions as well as complicated hospital
equipment and modern miracle drugs,
Through the years an American
Nurses' Association was formed "to
establish and maintain a code of
ethics, to elevate the standards of
nursing education, to promote the
usefulness and honor, the financial
and other interests of the nursing
profession." The gigantic strides
made in themedical world, coupled
with the advances in training and ed-
ucation, plus the elevated living
standards has made the typical nurse
of today and her job very different
and even more important than before.
