shortage of which Is bound to ensue from the strain placed upon If this course Is only a few and it turns out incompetent it is the fault of those who outline the course and not the fault of the girls who take They are willing to spend any amount of reasonable time and energy to become efficient If the Government will only show the These are girls of the finest calibre of Canadian woman They are university graduates and college They are who are willing to give up every thing just to When a girl be comes a she is then in the service of her She Is will ing to put any amount of energy into her for in all my experience I never remember any trying to shirk any duty assigned her And that is not She must pay her own buy her own and also Jive on a much smaller al lowance than would be necessary should she choose any other kind of war for which some of her friends are receiving big Not that the mind doing this in the least The privilege of di rectly helping our boys Is quite worth If such

Ability HEN you consider these it seems a misused ability to a trained nurse the work of sorting assigning making and giving the afternoon nourish making beds and keeping the tvards or keeping the instru ments and pans sterile in the dress ing Yet this must be And itis this work which the have been not taking thework 9f the trained nurse aa many owingto their lack of knowledge of the have The plan submitted by the asso ciation is that those girls who are nowdoing work should be put into civilian thijs releasing girls who are ntow who havehad two yearsof This sounds quite feasible enough on first but will it work out The girls who are now working voluntarily in our hospitals are girls who have made a speciality of edu cation and culture along different Nurbingr as a profession has never entered into their else they would have entered a hos pital to But when the need for help aose In the military hospi these unselfishly dropped the line of endeavor they werepar ticularly interested in and went into our military They wanted to help their country in her hour of ixntl It is most unlikely that these girls will change their minds about their line of and when the hour of need has passed and the war is fought to a finish they will take up that work which they so un selfishly feavu up for their Another class of girls found among are girls who have all their life long reclined inthe lap

but they in many cases refuse to do They do not have to earn their livingand what is use of spending two years in a civilian hospital when they will never use Do Other War Work N most cases these girls would 1 turn their attention to other wa work which will in all probability be a little more remunerative for most of them are bound to hav a hand in this fight one way or an and they will only put their energies into other If this is the case the civilian hospitals wil not only suffer from the change but military hospitals will also be This is readily shown by the fact that in one of our

be disorganized and the Government be forced to pay a lieutenants salary to accomplish the work heretofore done bv volunteer This will only add another tax the already overworked There is no short cut to the nurs ing profession and the girls of the I Ambulance Brigade are intelligent enough to understand the situation and the folly of such a dangerous But their work in Canada up to the present
