Teach Hobby Crafts To Student Nurses Making toy dogs out of strinz. rmrheting and similar crafts have been added to the curriculum of the J student nurses in the mid-year j practical nursing course, which ojvned today at the Central Y. M. C. A., 30 3d Ave. Aloni; with the leisurely finger work the nine-month course inciurirs. as another innovation, a vigorous deily workout in calisthenics and swimrmr.s. The craft instruction is for the benefit of the prospective nurses' prospective patients. When a convalescent or a chronic patient complains of boredom the nurse will be prepared with concrete suggestions for time-passing activity within the patient's energy. The gymnastics are for the nurse's health. The 30 young women registered for the course comprise the class in practical nursing ecr taught at the "Y." A reason for tne record enrollment is believed to be the increased demand for practical nurses to take the place of trained nurses called to duly in connection with the defense emer-cency.

Dr. Filield Explains Current War Steps To Forum Audience Noting that the center of war In Europe is rapidly moving toward the south, the Rev. Dr. L. Wendell Fifield, pastor of the Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims, in addressing 750 persons at the Sunday evening international forum sponsored by the church, said, in pftrt: "The drive of the German armies toward the Caucasus has a threefold purpose: to secure much needed oil supplies to make possible the continuance of a prolonged war, to secure the military co-; operation of Turkey and to menace i he life line of the British Empire by a threat to Suez and North Africa. "The British campaign in Libya is intended as a military offset to this German drive. If the forces of Germany and Italy can be driven from North Africa, then the full British strength can be utilized to resist the German drive for the oil fields and also to protect Suez and give Turkey support if she stands by Britain. "It should be remembered that any developments in Africa bring the war closer to the United States. German control of North Africa will pave the way for the complete militarization of Dakar. This would put the Axis closer to the southern part of South America than is the United States and so bring the military menace of the Third Reich definitely to the Western Hemisphere. . "In view of the great military strength of Britain now assembled in North Africa, there is no great probability that Germany will be successful, however." Dr. Fifield described the recapture of Rostov-in-Don by the Soviet forces as "very significant and encouraging." The German attempt to drive through to the oil fields will get increasingly difficult, he said.
