Mrs. Reed to Head
Educational Nursing ,
Red Cross Section
An entirely new development of
one branch of the Red Cross is about
to be inaugurated in Nebraska. It is
the practical application of the knowl
edge acquired in the first aid, home
nursing and dietetic classes.
Mrs. A.' L. Reed has been appoint
ed to head this important work. She
has just returned from Uiicago,
where she. went to learn the details
of the move.
All women who have diplomas in
these branches will be clasified. New
classes will be establishtd af once
Because of the shortage of trained
nurses, the hospitals want the serv
ices of these Red Cross nurses t
various and indefinite periods in or
der that the professional nurses may
be spared lor work which they alone
are able to do.
When the new system is establish
ed, Mrs. Reed will be able to supply
volunteer nurses for hospital work
trom her list of members. This ar
rangement has already proved most
successful in CJiicap-o.
The department will be known as
the educational nursing division. Un
der this head will also come the
campaign for 40,000 women to take
trained nurse courses, which will
shortly be announced. Nebraska's
quota wil be announced through Miss
Gertrude Smith, field secretary of
the Nebraska nursing service for the
Hospitals on Wheels
To Be Established
By American Women
According to the American Worn
en s Hospitals association, it is
the only organization in the United
Mates with which all women physt
cians may register tor war service
either at home or abroad. Within a
few weeks 50 women physicians will
be representing the American wom
en's hospitals in the war area.
The war service committee of the
Medical Women's National associa
tion, numbering 2,500 members, which
last June formed the "American
women's hospitals," says that it "had
the heart approval of Surgeon Gen
eral Gorgas of the army and Dr.
Pearce, director general of the de
partment of military relief of the
American Red Cross.
"Through the American women's
hospitals, working under the direction
of the Red Cross," is the statement of
the association, "the medical women
of the country propose to establish
just Lehind the trenches occupied by
American troops on the western front
hospitals on wheels, the designs for
which have been worked out entirely
by experts of the Medical Women's
National association. These will be
used solely for the care of fighting
men in the first stages of disease. The
facilities for caring for men in this
condition are still very limited on
every front. Except when impressed
into such service' in the midst of
heavy fighting, no effort will be made
by the physicians in charge of the
rolling hospitals to treat men wound
ed in battle.
"The rolling hospitals will be in
charge of women physicians recruited
from the ranks of the Medical
Women's National association, which
is now hoping to establish a large
number of these hospitals behind the
American troops on the western front
"The American women's hosiptals
has opened laboratory courses at the
Woman s Medical college of Pennsvl
vania and at the research laboratory
ot the Board of Health of New York
for the purposi of fitting college
women who have had courses in
chemistry and biology to become lab
oratory workers. A leading physi
can in every state has been asked
to organize the women physicians of
her state tor service m the American
hospitals. Thirty-six states have al
ready responded and are organized
under able chairmen for active serv
ice either at home or abroad.
"At the present time there are es
tablished on various European battle
grounds 10 hospitals, varying in ca
pacity trom 10U to 600 beds, all fully
staffed by women. The records of
these hosiptals show that the gravest
cases have been entrusted to them.
All officers whose duty it is to keep
well posted on the work of the hos
pitals in which the allied troons are
cared for say that the highest stand
ard ot work is maintained in these
hospitals in surgery, general, ortho
pedic, and oral cases, and in the care

In Great Battle
Young women of a Red Cross front
line unit made a fine record in the
opening German offensive in France.
At Roye they took over the direction
of military traffic. One girl in uni
form standing at the four corners
directed columns of guns, cavalry,
supply wagon and troops, thus pre
venting a traffic jam.
These women were the last to
eave several towns before the Ger
mans entered. Ihey aided hundreds
of refugees and established tempor
ary kitchens, where, among others,
250 British soldiers who had not
eaten for many hours were fed.
