BABY BUNTING For outdoor wear there is a new type of bunting, 9 jacket and hood separate with a pillow slip type of bottom, made of a laminated fabric which insulates against the cold. Just slip the baby into the bottom and zip it up. The jacket allows the baby's arms to be free--something most babies like. The mesh-sided beds as well as play pens have been "in" for some time, but there k a new bed, which folds in such a way as to slip through a door. It has mesh sides, a bed section which can be lowered to the floor to use as a play pen or lifted to any height to suit the comfort of the mother caring for the baby. These look so fragile compared to the wooden beds, but they waer as well and no baby can imprison a head through crib slats with these. BATH SEAT There is a new, small, plastic «eal in which a baby can be strapped and then lowered into the tub. It grips the bottom with suction cups. This makes bathing the small baby easy for the new mother. Another contrivance slips a sort of seat over the mother's arm and allows her to hold, the baby in that while she bathes him. For a nice pre-natal gift how about a "Sitters Book?" It contains pages on which instructions can be inscribed and torn out. And if you haven't seen and beard the dial-toned globe which can be put in a baby's bed to soothe him, do listen to this. This is not to be used to fool hungry, sick, or soil«"d babies into being soother, but is just for prematures, or small, fussy ones. It sounds to them like the familiar sound of their mother's heart or her blood circulating and puts UVm to sleep.

NEW AUXILIARY DIVISION The Marmettes' Aid Children in Hospital A new division has been added to the Woman's Auxiliary of Mannet Hospital. Made up of a group of girls from 18 to 20 years of age and wearing blue and white uniforms, the division has assumed the name of "The Marmettes". Under the guidance of Mm. Howard Wells, an auxiliary member, the MarmettM have undergone an orientation period ami uii-ue-jut it*ioin* iu uM hospital. They will report at 5:30 p. m. five days each week and remain until 8. Included in their volunteer duties will be helping to serve dinner to adult patients, helping to feed the children, assisting with small handicraft activities In the early evening, and showing films in the recreation room between dinner and bed time. · · * THE MARMETTES also will comb the children's hair, read to them and tell stories. One of their most important assignments will be visiting with teenage patients who need an opportunity to talk with others in their own age bracket. The girls plan to take on many other little jobs, such as help- Ing children put puzzles together when they are unable to move hand or arm muscles. Their volunteering will lighten the load of the nursing staff which now has little more time than for the bare necessities of administering medications and caring for sick paticnU.
