D. M. Beggs, pastor of the Congregational church in charge and burial at Hampton.

HIISS ELLEN CHURCH CRESCO--To the city of Cresco ijclonsrs the distinction of being the birthplace and early home of the first air hostess in the world. Miss Ellen Church, now superintendent of pediatrics as a member of the faculty of the school of nursing at the Milwaukee county hospital in Wisconsin, was the first !o conceive the idea of combining nursing with air transportation. Taught in Minneapolis A daughter of Mrs. Isabella Church of Cresco, graduate from the Cresco high school class of 1923 and the department of nursing at the University of Minnesota, Miss Church prac- tised nursing: and taught classes in her profession in the hospitals of Minneapolis. Later she went to California where in 1930 she was on the faculty of the nursing school in the French hospital of San Francisco. During a certain holiday there she visited the United Air tines, as she had for some time been interested in flying and had then eight houri of solo flights to her credit. Meeting one of the managers Miss Church suggested the idea of using: girl stewardesses instead of men on the air lines, thus combining flying with nursing. The idea did not at first appeal to the manager, but when Miss Church further explained the plan that had been in her mind, he soon admired it and took the matter up with the officers in Chicago who soon dispatched their agent to contact Miss Church, which resulted in her being engaged as their first air hostess, with power to chose her assistant nurses. Not Easy Task The selection 'of the necessary eight nurses was not such an easy task at that time, so many competent girls being rather reluctant to undertake this kind of air service. Now, after nearly nine years experienue, the air transportation companies find several hundred applicants on the waif- ing list, and the methods and requirements remain about the same as those first outlined by Miss Church in 1930.
