C.?Reports from American Red Cross chapters throughout the country reveal that women are responding to the call for 50,000 First Reserve Red Cross nurses, officials here announced. In making the plea for the enroll ment of additional nurses, Miss Mary Beard, director of the Red Cross Nursing Service, declared, "To place the nation's nursing program on a full wartime basis, the Red Cross must increase its nursing reserve by more than 50,000 trained nurses. "The Red Cross First Reserve, to taling approximately 24,000, is com prised of single nurses, under 40, who are subject to call to active du ty with the armed forces. Member* of the Second Reserve, totaling 34, 000, are for various reasons unavail able for military duty, but are pre pared to serve in disasters, wartime epidemics, and to reinforce nursing public health work for civilian de fense." Miss Beard issued the call for nurses following a conference with Major Julia O. Flikke, superinten dent of the Army Nursing Corps and Miss Sue S. Dauser, superintendent of the Navy Nursing Corps. Major Flikke reported that at least 10,000 additional nurses are needed for Army duty. Miss Dauser said that more than 1,390 addition al nurses will be required to keep pace with the expandtng personnel I of the Navy. Red Cross officials here declared that at the close of the first World War, 22.854 regular nurses and Red Cross Reserve Nurses were serving with the Army and 1,500 with the I Navy.
