Volunteers Prove Worth in Emergency Preparations for organizing a 3rd class of Red Cross Volunteer Nurse's Aides were discussed at a meeting of the nurse aide committee Wednesday afternoon at the Red Crabs office. Mason City has had 2 small classes of nurse aides and the 3rd is · planned so that there will be enough trained women to take care of the hospital work which the aides do without overburdening any one volunteer and so that the Nurse Aide corps will be able to meet an emergency should it arise. , In Minneapolis in December, more than 310 service men and 20 civilians were hospitalized in a few days for a condition described as' "upper respiratory infection." This added load on the hospitals caused an acute situation with respect to nurses. Already more than 100 nurse's aides were, working in the hospitals affected by the increased registration, but Minneapolis with a total of 1,052 nurse's aides with certificates, was equal to the emergency. A call went out for additional aides and 31 reported for service "over and above their regular assignment. Aides assigned to other hospitals in Minneapolis, came to the assistance of the one crowded by the emergency. Any Mason City woman who is interested in doing, this type of war service, meeting the emergencies in hospitals where the call for army and navy nurses has depleted the regular supply of nurses available, may call the Red Cross office, 1321, to arrange for an interview. After an intensive training course, the nurse's aide receives her cap and goes on duty in the hospitals, performing many of the J. L. Dalton to Address Organization J. L. Dalion of the FBI will be the speaker at the meeting of the High School Parent-Teacher association next Thursday evening, Jan. 27, at 8 o'clock in the high school auditorium. Mr. Dalton will discuss "Youth Delinquency," and because of the widespread interest in the topic, the P. T. A. officers have decided to open this meeting to the public. There will be no admission fee. Mr. Dalton has addressed groups in Mason City before and has a reputation of being a'good speaker. H THERE, LITTLE GIRL.JDON'T CRY!

Since the war began, the inventors of nylon have worked out a new wrinkle that threatens to put the stocking run menders out of business. Nylon threads, knitted into a stocking and stretched slightly over a hot cheesecake form, Jones said, will weld themselves together wherever they cross. It's^ the perfect answer to the runny stocking problem, said Jones. But while nylon may enhance American women's legs in a postwar future, it's doing, a strictly utilitarian job now. \ "Twisted together in a rope, it is the one substance that, hooked to the business end of a glider, will stretch just the right amount and then succeed in lifting the glider into the air behind its pilot plane," Jones said. "After the war you'll be using nylon for screens on your home." Wylon screens, Jones believes, will not rust, and when the baby pokes a pencil through it, the Women Okay as Drivers of Taxicabs ! St. Louis, (U.F9--Don't talk to the cab driver like that--she may be somebody's grandmother! . In fact, 2 grandmothers head the parade of a small company of women who have taken over the driver's seat in this war's cabbie shortage. Their performance offers some illuminating angles to that greatly maligned phenomenon -- t h e woman driver. It also, needless to say, adds another s c o r e to woman's record as a pinch-hitter in war's emergencies. There has been much talk--a lot of it with' smirks--about the idea of a woman taking over a cab driver's seat, of all things. A drill press operator, a stretcar motorwoman, a riveter--yes. But a taxi driver--the general idea is that it's a jo.b for men. , One operator of a fleet of 50 cabs had this to say: "At one time we had 12 women driving for us. The whole day shift, in fact. I'd say they're every bit as good and careful a driver as men--if not better." This man, the principal operator in this city's far-flung county territory, said that he ha'd always felt taxi-driving was a man's job but had to hire women more than a year ago as the only alternative w h e n his men began exchanging their gray uniforms for service ones. "But I soon changed my mind," he said. "Of course," he emphasized, : we took this 'woman driver* notion out of their heads from the start." He referred to a prerogative many women drivers popularly are said to exercise by making right turns from the middle of the stret and other, such vehicular unorthodoxies. "And now--why we have two grandmpthesr doing as bang-up a job for us as any men we ever had." He gave assurance that he was not speaking with a figure of speech either. The grandmothers are among 5 women who are all that remain of the dozen originally hired. Half of-them were mothers, and some had dropped out because of pressing family duties or to take other jobs. " The operator explained t h a t , after an initial test run with a supervisor, given to all prospective employes regardless of sex, he put the women on a permanent basis for as l o n g as they wanted to remain. As they did drop out, however, he said, they were replaced by men. The latter lately have become more available through medical discharges from t h e armed 'forces ' and through reclassification o£ 3-A's working in defense plants to elping the omemaker By MRS.

He admitted women drivers were handicapped when it came to night work, explaining; that he felt such night work might subject them to unnecessary hazards. This, in fact, is the reason large operators in St. Louis proper have not hired any women to date. "But," the county man summed up the situation, "the women definitely solved a serious help problem when they were needed. "After all," he concluded philosophically, "wet let them drive our family autos. So why not our taxis?' r And how do the men drivers feel about their co-workers? "Oh," said the operator, "they have names for t h e m--but we won't go into that" The impression left was that the names might correspond to those any male driver might bestow upon his isster driver under duress.
