From the I ntercom of February 1954
Wedding bells rang recently for: Gertrude Kelley and Harvey Woods, the
(housekeeping) department bachelor; Josephine Corigan and Robert Elliott;
Thelma Hayes and George Williams; and Lucy Rogers and O.V. Yeargin.
From the Co-Superintendents’ Comer: At present, the Hospital is operating
under an unbalanced budget. The increase of expenses over income is due to pay
increases put into effect last year without a corresponding increase in Hospital
rates to patients . . . We are asking everyone to make a conscious effort to avoid
waste and to conserve equipment and supplies as he goes about his daily work . . .
We know that we can counton your help. (Signed) L.E. Swanson and J.M. Pyne
Dr. and Mrs. Bayard Carter returned late in November after spending three
months in England. Dr. Carter was visiting professor at the University of
London's Institute of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
From the "Bouquets” column: To Bernice Long, who received a warm tribute
from the daughter of a cataract patient. "When another cataract patient needs a
nurse, I would like to recommend one of Papa's,” writes Miss Louise Gilbert of
Statesville. "They were all good, but the kindest and most considerate of all was
Bernice Long. She couldn't have treated him better if he had been her own father.”
Frances Tate, assistant head nurse on McDowell, has received a gorgeous
diamond from John Farrington, UNC medical student. No date has been set
.... Jim Kelly, senior medical student, and Eva Gottschall, X-ray technician,
will be married in March.
IBM has come to Duke Hospital to stay. The first use is with the payroll
procedure and therefore it is of interest to all Hospital and School of
Medicine employees . . . The first spasm has passed, but after we have
worked with the system for a few payroll periods the kinks will iron out.
Look Whafs Going On...
OOPS!—cold drink on the shoulder wouldn't be a very comfortable way to begin
lunch. The turnstile was placed at the Cafeteria's exit to prevent collisions like the
one demonstrated by Raleigh Price, environmental services, and Lelia Ervin, dietary
services. Paul Miller, cafeteria manager, reminds everyone to use the entrance for
safety's sake and for quicker, more orderly service. (Photo by Ina Fried)
