RED CROSS WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916
RED CROSS WORKERS. The volunteer nurse, who day by day is doing work that would be considered too menial for the most humble domestic -servant to attempt, and doing it as a service of love, sanctifies both the work and the worker. Nursing is not a roman tic profession under these circum stances. Nursing is more, it is sheer heroism in keeping on, always keeping on doing remarkably un pleasant things to aid others-what romance there is, is not in the work but in the `workers. But to aid in Red Cross. work in this way is , the privilege of comparatively few, for only a few are trained. The majority of the workers must be content to see that comforts are not lacking for the sick and' wounded, and in this work all can help. This help, to be efficacious, must' be or- I ganised. The individual is a unit I in a circle, the circle is a unit inI a branch, the branch is a unit in the society, and the Work of the individual passes through this chan nel on its way to relieve distress.
