Nurses Badly Needed. Miss .lean 0\inn. President of the Canadian National Assoeiation of trained nurses, .addressed the gathering on the shortage of trained nurses. This shortage was not found in the military hospitals at home or overeas. The were all at-traeted to the military serviop and the salary paid was larger than that paid for similar service at home. For these reasons all the nurses needed for active service were procurable For these reasons a.lsn the shortage had not been brought to the attention of tlie (Jovernntent throtigh military channels. Hospitals Handicapped. Decisive steps must he taken to meet tlie need, the association felt. The association, however, protested against any lowering of the standard ' """"'e;' "f ' anada were appealed to 'do for the puri)0sc of meeting the i ilifticnlty overseas., but it was not | the proper way of meeting the sitna-! lion in Canada. It was foufid that uur-I sea entered the civil hospitals, eii- ! ! trained for a fitw monllis and then | j joined the V..-V.1). in a preferred class.; i The civil hospitals were tlius handl j capped. The menace to the pitblif of no trained ntirses was not to 'be over looked. Tlie (|urs!iun had been I taken up -witli the Director General of .Medical Services at Ottawa. It was suggested that tlie Federal t!ov , ernment ask civil hospitals 'to train more nurses, the Ciovernment being � . responsible for housing and extra jiense. In return the hospitals would , stipply 'certain number of second and [ '. third year nurses for work in mill-; tary hospitals for a period of time . In this way the returned men would ; lie nursed by young women witji a knowledge of their work, instead of ! those who had their lesson of one \ j hour each. This would also result in ' a sufficient suiiply of nurses for civil' ' hospitals and giving all nurses uni � form training. The association suggested that the pupil nurses take the place of the the brigade to supply tlu personnel, including nurses aad clerks. The St, .lohn .-Vmbulance plan I had lieen accepted by tlie Director ; tlcneral and was aow before the I Hrivy Council. The acceptance of this plaii\woitId solve the questior.

AsKamed of Corns As People Should Be-They Are So Unnecessary The instinct is to hide a corn. And to cover the pain with a smile. For people nowadays know that a corn is pass�. And that naught but neglect can account for it. It is like a torn gown which you fail to repair. Or a spot which you fail to remove. The fault lies in neglecting a few-minute duty-just as with a corn. Any corn pain can be stopped in a moment and stopped for good. Any corn ban be ended quickly and completely. All that is nee essary is to apply a little Blue-jay plaster. It is done in a jiffy. It means no incotivenience, I Then a bit of , scientific wax begins its gentle action. In two days.
