BACK IN SCHOOL — As Janet Hall, Wellsville, takes up school activities her summer experiences seem like a dream. (Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Summer's Gone, Now It's School Janet Hall, Wellsville High School junior, is typical of other young people the country over, whose summer activites seem like a dream since they have returned to school. Janet's experiences, however, •re probably different from those of most girls her age. he worked as a nurse's aide in Gardner Hospital. "It really was mom's idea that I apply for the job," she said. "But I went along with the idea and filled out an application blank. I went for an interview and was hired. "I had heard about nursing work and had visited my grandmother when she was a patient in a London hospital, but really knew little about the work. I found the Gardner Hospital quite different from the one I had visited. "I went on rounds with the experienced aides and learned what they did. We gave baths, fed patients unable to feed themselves, made beds and took pitchers of fresh water. At the end of two weeks I made rounds alone." Janet, as well as other aides, wore white uniforms and white shoes and socks or hose. She reports she saw a few accident patients but did not become ex- Red Or Black, All Ink To Her I PRINTED PATTERN By BUD SPRUNGER NEW YORK (AP)-Gentlemen: )o department store statements make your wife nervous? Does she hide them from you until pay day? Does she try to disappear while r ou figure them out? Does she point to a figure nervously and say: "Cross off that $17.60. I took those gloves >ack. And they were very nice about it." Does she think the beginning and end of paying bills is a 10- minute bawling out from you, to DC forgotten immediately? Buster, we are in the same league. And it is worse than you think. Worse than at least one large \"ew York store realizes. The store thinks it owes me around $300. It said so right on the last statement. That was the great awakening. You and I and that store all know lhat no department store ever owes any husband!' Going on that premise, I conducted a full-scale investigation and learned that my wife doesn't understand what the bill says. She doesn't know that a store can mark down, on one bill what we owe (black ink) and what I have paid or what she has returned (red ink). It was just so many numbers to her—and she blamed her high school math teacher. Your wife probably has the same failing. And I'd advise you not to teach her differently. Take my case. We bought a couch and not wanting to get into our usual troubles with so much money involved I left a check, telling my charmer to give it to the man who delivered the couch. The store, sinking in a quicksand of slips left behind by these ladies when they return gloves, etc., credited me with the amount of the check (red ink) but forgot to charge me for the sofa (black ink). That left me way ahead. j The mistake was explaining to 'her the difference between rec j ink and black ink. Now she (figures out red ink very well anc is delighted. She intends to spenc her balance (it bar ceased to be "our" balance) forthwith. Probablv the best thing wouk be to lock her up when I come to work. cited. However, the most critica patients were always taken in t Kansas City. "It was interesting to see a pa tient being given a shampoo. 1 is quite a project for serious! ill persons and one which I -Ji not attempt. Most of the patients were appreciative of care given Janet can tell you that it takes some will power to stick to such a job the first week. "An aide is on her feet all day long, with little chance to stop," Janet says. "I got terribly tired at first. In fact, the first week as soon as I got home from work I had supper and went straight to bed. Of course, the fatigue is due partly to the strain of learning a new job. "After about the first week, though I found I could work without getting tired. I rode to and from Gardner with some folks who commute to Kansas City. I started work at the end of May and worked up to the second week in August." Janet says she will use some of her wages for school expenses j this winter and will save some for further schooling later. She had time for a nice vacation trip ' to the Pacific Coast in Augus with her parents, Mr. and Mrs Ernest Hall, and her young broth er. Janet joined her parents Wellsville a little less than twc years ago, at Thanksgiving time Almost since babyhood she lived in London with her granc parents until they died. The sigh of the ocean was the neares thing to England she has see; since coming here. "I am not sure what work want to take up later," Ja net says. "I would like to d nurse's aid work again next sum mer as I am interested in som sort of medical or technical ca reer." 4894 SIZES 24V4 Observe Founding It is announced that Soropiti- mist clubs throughout the world this week are observing the 40th anniversary of the founding of the first Soroptimist club in 1921.
