Students who are interested and
are unable to attend this meeting are
asked to call Olive Chernow (2-3225)
who is chairman- of the Hospital
Service Committee.
Volunteer aids are required to
work four hours per week, which
may be divided into two two-hour
shifts. Students may work morn-
ings, afternoon, evenings, Satur-
days and Sundays whenever they
have any spare time.
Mrs. McCoy, director of the Vol-
unteers, will outline the various
duties and responsibilities connected
with this service at the orientation
meeting. At this time each student
will also sign up for the particular
type of work she would like to do.
The volunteers work, in the
wards directly with the patients.
They run errands for the nurses
as well as the patients, feed those
unable to eat by themselves, ar-
range flowers, and assist the
nurses and doctors in every way
possible. In children's wards the
volunteers play, read, dress, feed

dents who are chemistry or physics
majors. These volunteers may sign
up for work in the hospital labor.-
atories where they will learn to take
blood counts and stain and label
slides. Such work is arranged after
an interview with the lab director.
The uniforms worn by the vol-
unteer aids consist of blue jackets
provided by the Hospital, white
hlouses, dark skirts, low-heeled
shoes and silk stockings. Each wo-

left at the Hospital at all times so
that it may be laundered.
During the war this activity was
caried on as Soph Project,. but now
is a special division of the League
Hospital Service Committee. Accord-

of service and aid has been rendered
by the coeds in the past, and I'm
sure that at this time they will help
iimensurably in their tasks as Hos-
pital Aids."
