THE BISHOP TUTTLE SCHOOL For wlijit kind of work is the Bishop I’uttle School training? Its thirty-eight graduates are doing many different kinds of work aecording to the opportunities tluit have otfered. There is tliat in the small southern town such as the i)lace where we have a church building hut no resident Negro i>riest. The work has the oversight of the white clergyman of the town and has been de- veloj)ed by a Negro layman and physician. Our graduate has taken hold of all the ])roblems—the Sunday School, its teachers, attendance, curricu- luiri—the young people, their recreation aiul in terests—the Woman’s Auxiliary and its oppor tunities and educational feature's and relations to “281.” She finds and ]>repares candidates for Baptism and has demonstrated that her s))ccial field is not “raising money.” She works with the leaders of the other churches of the town and they are finding that there art' ])ossibilitiea of coo])era- tion. She secnn'd a small shanty oj)posite the Church, had it cleaned and whitewashed, cleaned uj) the yard, laid out a t('nnis court, collected some books and magazines, and b('hold a “('omimuiity Center.” We have another graduate in a small mid-west city where a Church and ))arochial school are be ing run with absolutely no e(piipment, a leaking roof, one stove around which they huddle, no supply of books or blackboards or mat('rials of any kind. Another has just gone to work under a (bounty Supervisor of Public W('lfare. She is to begin with trying to bring children to school, which will mean attacking every ])roblem of the rural section—not only the need for food and clothes but also the behavior and habits that are tied up with the whole (juestion of children rtin- ning wild. Remember this worker as she tries to do tliis for the Stat(' in the sanu' way that she would do it for tlu' (’luirch. 'i'hcs(' ar(' exanqili's of sonu' of the work, a far cry from other positions in ])ublic wc'lfart' in such cities as Newark, Washington, Louisville, St. Louis, agenci('S that are the last word in efficient management, and different again from the work with girls in th(' Church Mission of Ilel]), and from that in tiu' five State honuvs, in New Jt'rsey, and Delaware, and Maryland, and Virginia, and North ('arolina, from court work, and (’ounty AVork and I'ravi'ller’s Aid. 'I'iiey are in South Carolina under Archdeacon Baskervill and carry ing the training and experience into hospital work, school work and parish work. Eight have served the Associated Charities in Washington for vary ing lengths of time, and six the St. Louis Provi dent Association. With the quality of this work in mind and be cause girls with these possibilities deserve the best l)reparation they can be given, it is now a graduate school, the entrance requirement a degree from a standard college. In exceptional cases only is less than this accepted and then only wdien there is also definite experience or training in some recog nized social or religious agency. What are they being trained for? We do not know', but we watch them and study them and pray that the two years here in the school may indeed prepare them for the work that will be given them to do. B. R. SAINT AGNES HOSPITAL 'riiere set'ms little to record that is new about St. Agues IIosi)ital since struggles to economize more and more in the use of supplies, and to limit j)urchases to absolute necessities are the same things that most institutions are doing. Our library—so much the gift of the C. P. C.— has assumed the proportions of a real library and next to our home is perhai>s the thing in which we take most pride. It is here, surrounded by r('ferencc books, that the nurses sjjcnd their study hours. Our resident j)hysiciau. Dr. W. F. Clark, com pleted his fourth year September first, and much to our gratification has opened an office in Raleigh. This made it possible for him to receive a staff ai)pointinent as assistant orthopedist, and for him to continue some special pathological work for the hosj>ital, that is very essential if we would ket'j) our standing in the National Associa tion. 1 have been collecting new spellings of “Agnes” of which perhaj)s the most common are “Agness” and “Aguest” and one, on a r(>cent letter one of the more luicommon. ‘‘Aginiel.” The I’ost Office I)c])artment always knows us, ai)])arently, for no matter how weird the sj)elling or whether we figure as a “Ho})tice” or a “Horse I’ittle” the let ters reach us even though Raleigh nuiy be left off or have become “Rawl” or “Ralijeh.” On the (^uiet Day of Prayer, the llosjjital (Miaj)el Avas constantly occupied as all of the mirses and even an intern took periods for prayer. One nurse asked for an early morning assignment as on Armistice Day her family had always said ])rayers, fasting. I think all felt it a privilege to join with the world in such an observance of the ilay. F. A. W.
