The Red Cros~, nurse serves in time of war, disaster and peace, she said. Under the home service she outlined the following divisions: peace .'mie, public health nursing, child \vcl-j fare, school ., couimunn/| health program, tuberculosis nuu- Ing- service, public health education and community health. For Inspiration, Mrs. Wriqht continued, f.

'" Going back to the middle of tlie 19th century to the battle field o; fc'olferino where France anl Kaiv ; were at war with Austria, Mr. rut- tie traced the world development ' of Hie Red Cross in his spe-;cii, "International Obligations of the ^ Red Cross." It was against t'>at f background that Henry Dtmisnt. s Swiss neulral, said "An enemy wounded is an enemy no longer" , and gathered together n group of peasant women to nurse the wounled men with which he fll!c I a nearby church. Thus says, Mr • Tuttle, was born the spirit of the Red Cross. In 1863 at Geneva, Switzerland. an international Red Cross committee was formed to keep alive this new spark of compassion and humanitarian interest. In summing up his talk, he emphasized that the Red Cross la world wide, that it is a unified cooperative effort on the part of all nations toward , the relief of needless suffering in war and In peace and he reiterate! several times that it must be neutral. "We must serve humanity—not a race, not a creed, not a nationality . . . The American Red Cross cannot be made ready, it must oe ready." Miss Morton, who followed Mr. American Red Cross supplies householders and farmers with .1 check list ol accident hazards In flflht against large annual death toll.
