THEY GAVE ALL
When first I wake at early dawn
I lie and stretch and groan and yawn,
And rub my eyes and wonder when
It will be time to sleep again.
And then I drag my Ingersol
From of£ its nail upon, the wall,
And try to kid myself to thinking
I have a bit more time for blinking.
But, no siree! That measly Bob
Disgustingly, is on the job.
And so I yawn and stretch once more
And finally bounce out on the floor.
And yet contrarywise at night
When it is time to snuff the light.
No matter how I worked that day
I want to stay awake and play.

HERE TO WORK.
One of the Blue Birds was washing
the top shelf ol the linen closet while
Captain X—stood by and disclosed the
discomforts of a nurse’s life. “Now
aren’t you wishing you were home
right now?” he asked. “N'o I’m not”
the nurse replied, “I wish I could find
someone who’d find me a chair, bhe
got the chair and another man found
out'that the student nurses are here
to do anything and everything they
The infirmary has had several visi
tors from the student nurses, this
week. Among them were: Misses G.
Pierce, Carrington, Moore, Van Cam-
pen, Offertt, Jackson, Atwood. All of
them are out again and can give the
sick “flues” dots on K. P. work.
It is rumored that one ol the Student
nurses is going to change her home
address in the near future.
The student nurses are excited over
General Rumor No. 92 which concerns
a play. Who is going to give it, and
who may be the heroine are the chief
questions being asked.
There seems to be a great deal of
discussion as to the age ol the Probs.
Let it go on record that the average
age is twenty-one years and five
weeks. (Age limit army nurses 21-35)
General Rumor No. 91 had it that no
nurse could go abroad if she were less
than twenty-five. Then age of the
student nurses since then is variable.
Probationer No. 1—“When you see
Mary, tell her I wish I had her back.”
Probationer No. 2—“WhaCs the
matter with your own back?”
