STUDENT NURSES SO NAME
The student nurses in number ten
dormitory have a real live mascot. His
name is Chang, which any one can
see is a mystic name. And, like the
wind, no one knows whence he came
or whither he goeth. He simply is.
Since his arrival, there has been
quite a deal of discussion as to what
he is. He looks like a turtle, but
some say he is a terrapin., Personal
ly, we thought a turtle and a terrapin
were the same, but it seems there is
a difference. One of the students,
whose is quite versed in bugology,,. de
clared he was an insect, hut as her
opinion was given when Chang had re
tired into his shell, we fear that her
theory was based upon his resem
blance at that time to a potato bug.
Miss Maud L^ Wagner, our Night
Supervisor has been transferred to
the Walter Reed Hospital, Takoma
Park, D. C., leaving many friends to
regret her departure.
Miss Anna W. Grabill has returned
from a two weeks’ leave of absence.
Miss Anna Ruth Cropsey, Nurse,
A. N. C., arrived for duty Oct. 19, from
New York City.
Last evening we had quite a deal
of trouble in finding a place for him
to sleep, as, even though it was a
cold night, none of the girls seemed
inclined to take the responsibility of
looking after him. Several places
were suggested, among them being a
traveling hag, a shoe, a coal bucket
and the center table. The latter place
was finally selected, but after the
lights were opt, we feared he might
fall off, so he was placed on the floor
near the stove. Needless to say, there
was some apprehension, as to where
his nocturnal wanderings might take
him, and most of us devoutly hoped he
would keep away from our particular
portion of the dorm. This morning
he was not to be found, but later, was
discovered under one of the beds.
' We are now endeavoring to find out
what he eats, and to date have a
widely varying menu, including most
everything from flies to cornflakes

STUDENT NURSE NOTES.
COMPOSITION ON BONES.
There are a good many different
kinds of bones in the human body.
There are short bones, crooked bones,
stiff bones and skinny bones. Long
bones make you tall—short bones
make you short. Bones are surround
ed with thin skin called parafine—like
on jelly; inside the parafine is the
Suez Canal filled with sorrow. The
flat bones and ribs hold the heart in
and keep it from jumping out when
you get scared to death. The crooked
bones are the kind in the back and in
some people’s noses. The stiff and
skinny are used by old maids.
This is all I know about bones, but
I will write another composition about
muscles when Lt. Upton tells us their
