At that time the regular work ; schedule was put into operation for both the women and the junior members. Under the capable direction of Mrs. DeWayne Foehlinger, these volunteers have given generously of their time and energy. THE "PDTK-LADIES," whose name is derived from the cheery- colored smocks worn by all members while on duty, have become a welcome sight to patients, nurses and doctors. Among their tasks are the sorting and delivering of mail; arranging of flowers; assisting with in-patients and out-patients; and the many varied duties of hostesses. These include assisting visitors in finding patients' rooms, vsiting the chronically ill, distributing books and magazines, making telephone calls or writing letters for patients. One of the most recent services Offered by the auxiliary, was the opening of the snack bar in October. 1956. Its popularity has caught on surprisingly fast, and Oskaloosa is one of the few cities of this size in tbe state where such a short-order bar is operated for the benefit of visitors. From its opening until the end ^jf '56 volunteers had put in more than 700 hours operating the snack bar. Organized under the direction of Mrs Carl Bennett, its chairman for '57 is Mrs. Raymond Kentfield. GENERAL AUXILIARY duties, outside the snack bar, totalled more than 2,000 hours for the senior members. Both Mrs. Eiml Feinberg and Mrs. Carl Bennett. hit the 100-hour mark in 1956, with Mrs. Feinberg volunteering 129 hours and Mrs. Bennett 107. Members of the sewing guild meet at the hospital two or three Thursdays a month, except for a few weeks' vacation during the busy holiday season. A total of 120 women from nine different Oskaloosa churches have spent a total of 525 hours sewing 875 different articles since its organization. Mrs. Ralph Van Arkel is the current, chairman. i On Feb. 25. 1956, the junior auxiliary was organized, under thej Your Present Furniture · REFINISHED · REMODELED New Furniture Custom Built To Suit Your Needs ANTIQUES RESTORED We Specialise In Custom-Builf Kitchen Cabinets and Other Built-in*.
