She urged young women who have a genuine desire to help, to become nurses in the United States war effort. . _ Chronicling high points in nursing's past, Miss Clack named the first recorded instances of home nursing as taking place in the middle ages in monasteries and vents. "They stood for all thai was best in nursing and kept alive the spirit of service to suffering mankind," she said. _ That spirit, Miss Clack declared, "is the motivating power for the convents. "They stood for all that the nursing profession." F l o r e n c e Nightingale appeared as the founder of modern nursing during the middle of the 19th century, the speaker said. Miss Nightingale made the public realize that nursing was an art. She helped raise it to the status of a trained profession, from which the sick, rich ~ and poor alike, could hope to receive adequate and skilfull care." Wars have given great impetus to the .development o£ nursing. Miss Clack said, explaining: . "Until Florence Nightingale, through her unfaltering perseverance, succeeded in providing nursing cares for the soldiers in the Crimean war, it was thought that such a service by trained nurses was impossible." Miss Clack told the story of Miss Nightingale's nightly visits to the wounded,in the hospital wards. She carried a lamp'on lie'r BUY f«r LESS GRAPEFRU1T, Large Size, 3 for Libfay PEACHES, No. Z'/ 2 Can... WHEATIES, 27C 9c Rose Croix ' %Aji PEARS, No. 2 y z Can ZUC Can-D Lite SWEET CORN, No. 2 Can.

They blessed the nurse and her lamp as she passed by, Miss Clack said. ¥ ¥ ¥ "The Lady with the Lamp has grown to be the great ideal for all nurses to follow," said Miss Clack, "and the symbolism of the light which she brought into such utter darkness, inspires us all." With the Civil ivar came Clara Barton and the inauguration of the Hed Cross nursing service in the armed forces, Miss Clack co'n- linued. Another figure, who carried nursing to the American backwoods areas, was Jane A Delano. The post-World war period saw a great forward stride in public health services, said Miss Clack. People have learned the reasons for giving their bodies scientific care. "They have cast aside the old superstitions and prejudices that for so long kept us from dcvel- opijig into tKe strong, healthy nation .which our America has now become," the school nurse said. * ¥ ¥ Miss Clack spoke of the opportunity for young women with the right personality, character and desire to serve, to enter the nursing profession now. There is a great need for more trained nurses now, she said. The period of reconstruction after the war will continue to require expert nurses, the speaker said, adding: "There will not only be broken bodies to mend, but there will be warped minds and personalities to be guided back to normal." ¥ ¥ ¥ Many branches of nursing, Miss Clack said, offer themselves to these young women. Working lo save human life and pointing: the way to a better life afterwards, are truly satisfying tasks, she pointed out. ¥ * ¥ "If you are betwedn the ages of 18 and 35, have finished high school and preferably had some college work, if you are possessed of good health, a sense of humor and a desire to give real service." Jie speaker said, "get in touch with your family physician and jnder his guidance enter a good training school for nurses." Citing Edith Cavell's wbrds before facing a German firm" squad, Miss Clack called them a creed for nurses: "Standing as I do in view of God -md eternity, I realize that pa- riotism is not enough. I must i.ive no hatred or bitterness to- vard anyone." I Ice Cutting Soon to !
