RED CROSS WORK IN BARROW Is Our Indifference Real Or Apparent? > Our Children Will Make Just Such Men as we Train Them to be While Young and Plastic. There seems to be some indifference or something, that to our minds, out of harmony with the requirements of of our community at the present time. Six or seven mouths there came into our midst a very industrious and intelligent young woman in the capac ity of a graduate nurse with several years’ hospital and practical experi ence as a nurse, to serve this communi ty under the American lied Cross As sociation. We tnke it for granted that she came here officially and by the so licitation of the Local Chapter. Now just at the time the work is getting under way and the people are learning the value and meaning of this work, we hear rumors of failure of this city and comity to further support this work. This service is not for a few privi ledged individuals. It is not, we sup pose necessary for those of us that are 'situated more fortunately than our brother who may be less fortun ate to have this service; those of us who have had opportunities of learn ing how to keep healthy and when vis ited by sickness, exercise the proper methods of caring for our sick ones and other members of our families whom we wish to protect, and keep well, do not need this service. Many of us have had chances to learn much higyene and home sanitation, hut there are many of us that have not had any chance to learn how to take cure bf oru selves and families. Many of us are not financially able to secure assist ance when our families are in need of the expert, much less able to learn the things we ought to know as re gards our health. Many of us may think we are safe and can get along alright without any help, hut we are helpless and are all more or less dependent on our neigh bor. We want our neighbors to be well and healthy tlfe same as ourselves The proximity to us and our families of some insanitary coiidition or un healthy surroundings in a home or neighborhood may lie a very danger ous menace to the health of our house holds. We believe tin* city of Winder and the county of Barrow have more pride, civic and otherwise, than to allow an institution of this character to be lost to this community. We can appropri ate hundreds of dollars for other, pos sibly less valuable services, functions, pleasures etc., why can’t we do some thing that will be of lasting service and value to our children and the com ing generation. Whut about it Mr. Oni/inary /for the county? and Mr, Mayor for the city? Can we afford Jo lose the Red Cross Nurse for Barrow county?—W. T. Randolph. M. D., E. F. .Saxon, M. D., E. R. Harris, M D, W. L. Mathews, M. D. Death Claims Mr. Wm. Robertson of Statham Mr. Wm. C.
