The may or's address was a most happy one and he was enthusiastically applauded. He said: It gives me great pleasure to welcome in our city the representatives of the trained nurses of Pennsylvania. The people of Scranton are broad, progressive progressive and charitable, and I believe that no city in our state couid have been selected selected for your meeting place where you would have found your' surroundings more in harmony and sympathy with the humane work to which your profession profession is dedicated. In these days when the columns of the daily press is filled with the details details of one of the . most sanguinary wars of modern times the attention of the whole world Is particularly attracted attracted towards the work and mission of the trained nurses as - demonstrated in the great Red ' Cross organizations of both Russia and Japun. We see these nurses by the hundreds in the great field hospitals In the wake of the opposing armies in the Orient, and the brightest , page in the records of thla terrible contest Is the story of the ministration ministration of these devoted men and women. The work to which you as' art organization are dedicated cannot be surpassed in the field of human endeavor. endeavor. It is not alone wh!n the rei cloud of war settles over the land that your work is annarent and appreciated, but in flood, fire or pestilence It is the same, omnipresent and nlwaya effective. You are alike at Johnstown, Gulveslon or Butler. It would be n waste of time for me assure you of the earnest sympathy and support of your work by every well - wisher of the human, race. You know this,., and have,' no doulgt, been told of it a hundred times. This feeling, feeling, while not as often or ns loudly expressed ns It deserves to be, is yet very real and strong. I believe that no single occuranee connected with ths Kustern war. has so prejudiced the American people against the Russian administration as the rumors of the peculation of funds intended for Red Cross work. It is regrettable that more attention has not been paid to the American branch of the Red . Cross work. We feel honored that you have selected selected Scranton ns your meeting" place and trust that your sojourn here may one of mingled pleasure and profit. Col.j E.
