M .j nursing and Immortalized as the 1/ady With the Lamp, she lifted this loathed and lowly occupation to the level of high calling worthy of heaven's blessings. Because of her parent's opposition, she did not enter nursing as a life work until she was 30 years of age. Miss Russell said, "While there are more fields oppn to nursing graduates, more rising educational standards, nursing improvements, such as a, five-day, forty- hour week, in that group few stay with the profession." "The end result of all this," she continued, "is that while there has been a definite trend twards bettering professional nurses in education and working time, we still are losing in the. numbers of nurses that are graduated and qualified each year. We need to improve the nursing care rendered but for the time, at least, the hope that the nursing problem will be met by professional nurses is just that, a hope." Miss Russell listed six functions of professional registered nurses in a hospital: 1) supervision of a | complete and comprehensive nursing care plan for the patient; 2) observation, Interpretation and | evaluation of patienl's symploms and needs, both physical and men- Ital; 31 carrying out the legal and | complete orders of physicians for 'medication and treatment; 4) performing nursing procedures and techniques, especially those based on technicial information: 5i supervision of auxiliary help includ- including LVN practical nurses and health workers: 6) accurately recording and reporting facts and evaluation of patients' care. In c'onHu.»ion. Miss Russell said, "The effect of the nurse shortage on the hospital staff makes it less able to give adequate nursing care for hospital patients." She pointed • were *' lh the for fllrther «s Mrs. Cos ton was named Girl's Slate chairman. It was voted to order 4,000 pop- I pies to be sold on Poppy Day. ; For the program.

"Wherever she goes, she will touch a myriad of lives, it her training is matched by commensurate dedication. Her reward will not always be found in remuneration for her fir«, but she will find unsurpassed joy in walking in the footsteps of t h e Master, who went out doing good and healing all that were oppressed."

"The temperature rarely goes: below ?0 degrees nor above f>0 de-j grees. However, since Guam is approximately 800 miles from t h e equator, the lerrlperature is deceiving," Mrs. Osborne said. "They have two distinct seasons, wet and dry-. Most of the over tOj inches of annual rainfall comes in July through September." ; "It is the biggest little place.") Mrs. Osborne continued, "One'iSj not aware of Its small size while j there, but it is less than 22S square ' miles in area. The water of the' ocean ia so very blue. It appears j almost us if it had been dyed. The | scene at Umatic City and Bay is : one of unique beauty."

Hawaii flS seen by Mrs. Hills opened with "We visited Harry'.« woodwork shop in Hawaii where so many beautiful wooden salad bowl set*, serving dishes, trays, tables are made from the wood of the beautiful, huge Monkey Pod Tree." "The acres and acres of sugar cane spread far beyond the vision of the eye.

Over 22,000 graves are there and more bodies are being brought in all the time. Ernie Pyle is buried there and his grave is marked in the same standard way as are all the others. This was his special request should anything happen to him during the war." "Dinner at the Salvation Army's "Wailei" (the land of singing waters) Tea Room was enjoyable.
