career as sophomore "big sisters'

their white caps at a picnic to be
held on the lawn of Couzens Hall.
The rest of the familiar blue
and white striped nylon uniform
complete with name pins at the
neck and white aprons, will arrive
in time for the summer session.
Starting June 24 these nurses-in-

volunteer work with children at
University Hospital and several
observation tours of actual wards
in the nursing orientation class.
This orientation class provides
freshmen with a practical overall
view of nursing through skits por-
traying hospital situations and lec-
tures presented by heads of the
various hospital departments. Dur-
ing these meetings the girls re-
ceived their TB tests, X-rays and
inoculations against TB, tetanus
and small pox.
"The girls also meet as a group
and get to know each other better
in this class," Miss Hancher said,

my first shot," she admitted.

"The hopelessness of some of

Viewing autopsies as tools for

JERUSALEM, Israel Sector -
Israel is seeking outside support
for an "international" pipeline
that will offer a bypass to the Suez
Canal for part of Western Europe's
The government has before it
several proposals and is' negotia-
ting for French financial backing.
A decision is expected soon.
One plan envisages either a 16
or 32-inch pipeline from the newly
opened southern port of Eilat to
Sukreir on the Mediterranean
coast. Another would extend this
line with a 16-inch link from Suk-
reir to Israel's port on the north,
Israel R. Kosloff, the govern-
ment's fuel advisor and petroleum
commissioner, says: "We are will-
ing to give such a transit pipeline
across Israel an international
status entirely outside of domes-
tic affairs. We would guarantee
not to interfere with the flow of
oil. The sources and destination of
the oil would be of no concern to
the Israel government.
"As far as I know, there is no'
other country in the Middle East
willing to take this position. We
feel that such a pipeline would be
a significant contribution to Eu-
