PRICE 11 CENTS n (By Special Leased Wire.) Washington, Aug. 22--The nurses who served so no- bly with flic army in France and who were responsible lor the amazing percentage of complete recovery ol vvonml- ed and sick soldiers have slarlcd a real fight here, in Wash- ington lo secure relative army rank for Nurses in Ilic ser- vice. As the reason for that demand they cite experi- ences while in the service in France and England. Only through such a system, they say, can the nursing corps be maintained ai the high standard of efficiency which A- merican preparedness demands. In order lo emphasize Iheir reasons they have asked the Senate and House lo grant a public hearing on the Jones-Raker bill giving rela- tive rank lo armynurscs. At this hearing, which shortly will be held, the'mirses expect to show justification for Iheir demands. One. of their leaders, Mrs. Anne Calvert Neeiy, lias prepared Ihe following slalemcnt selling forlh the cause of Ihe nurses for Ihe International News Ser- Dealers eering. Washington, ennlKi!

When urged these nurses will show their ''many decorations .and citations, but .in doing so they always 'say. "Wo :-like. these. but what love Is Mic praise of bur'wounded boys." That praise is unstinted, ,'j As one poor crippled, follow in Walter ReeJ Hospital said to me yesterday: nurses pulled us through. They were 'the bright light we saw when we gol uut of bailie.

Medical officers who were with them on the Tiring lino, public fflcvi who saw them, ut work at the front; the boys whose lives (hey testily lo Iheir devoted heroism. Said1 Representative Roavis, uf Ne- braska, on his return from H'rancc: "1 saw gray faced, hollow eyed nurses who (admitted reluctantly mid with a smile that thoy had been on duty nndq'r fire tor thirty-six, forty-eight, lUly-uvo hours. I've come hack to ,r In the acid test of the late war onr nurses discovered that they could have cared for Iheir wount'ed more efficiently had they possessed rank. And this is why. The Army Nurse Corps has the grave responsibility oi seeing that the medical officers' or- ders are carried out. To da this, as have as Seventy patients in their wards at a time, Ihcy must depend on (he help of orderlies who are enlisted men, for the most part, untrained in hospital work and constantly shifting. These men have hcen taught lo obey officers who wear rank insignia on their shoulder straps but not to obey nurses withont rank or tho insignia of ran'K. They think exactly what one delirious man al a base hospital kept to Ilis nurse: "I don't have to obey yon- Yoti'ro not an officer; you're only a nurse."
