Some of- tho Meredith girls think
that the infirmary is a place to be
afraid of, that it will catch them
when tliey. aren’t looking, and shove
them into bed for a week or two. If
they have lo stay up there for any
length of time, however, they come
to realize the gentle and protecting
coueern of the infirmary spirit. They
are made to feel that they don’t have
to wori-y about anything, that all
they have to do is to lie back- on
soft pillows, rest, and do their best
to get woll. They eomo to love the
nurses, who aro real friends of every
Meredith girl.'

infirmary was re-decoratcd and dedi
cated to throe women who aro im-
])ortant in its history—Dr. Delia
Dixon Carroll, Mrs. Olivia Norwood,

began work together as the baekbone
of the infirmary whoii Meroditli Col
lege was first opened in 1899. Dr.
Carroll was the beloved college physi

J'iorwood, n practical nurse, honored
and loved by all alumnae, who knew
her as “Son,” cared for Meredith
girls until she retired because of ill
health in 1932. Miss Nora Kelly, a
graduate of Mississi])pi Infirmary,
had charge of tho infirmary from
1933 to 1943, under Dr. Bessio E.
