We Are Becoming Sane Again [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 February 1921
We Are Becoming Sane Again “I have worked 12 hours a day for more than 50 years.” said Webster, the great American statesman. ‘‘Work,- work, work; that is the main thing,” said Lincoln. There is more happiness in work than anything else. Many of us who drudge, drudge away year after year will feel like disputing that state ment offhand. But if they will reflect a bit, and consider just how they would feel if they had absolutely nothing to do, there are few of them that will not say that without work they would be lost.

But our minds have been fill ed since 1914 with all sorts of half crazy thoughts and notions that have made many poor laborers in the fields of endeaver which we have chosen.We have been crazed by the desire for too much pleasure; or the war has crazed us with the thought that man is ...

AGAINST STATE NURSING SHORT AGE. Charlottesville, Va. Feb. 9—ln order to build up the completment of registered nurses in this state, which according to doctors, is now more than thirty-three per cent below normal, the Summer Quarter and School of Nursing at the University will this June install a special three months course at the University. This course combining instruction in anatomy. Physiology, sanitation dietetics, bacteriology, pathology and the history and ethics of nursing, will be the first of its kind opened to young women of the South. One of its chief aims is to provide probation ers with a short intensive training period and thus shorten the three years course now required by state law. Dr, Hugh, dean of the department of Medicine, believes that the state legislature will agree to change the present law and will be willing to grant certificates to nurses who have had two and one-quarter or two and one half years of practical work in addition to the three months of stu...

Letter No. 1 [Newspaper Article] — The Recorder — 11 February 1921
Letter No. 1 Dear Mr. Doe: Do you recall the days when they bought space in the newspapers, not because they needed it, but to help the boys along? That was in father’s time, when advertising was young, and when ground-rents were LOW —we have LEARNED things since then' Now, we buy advertising from the| selfish standpoint. Wholly. We have come to that dollars spent in newspapers, are like dollars put into HEAT, LIGHT, WAGES, RENT and STOCK-IN-TRADE. We have settled down to the conviction that running a business WITHOUT the newspaper, is like running an automobile WITHOUT GASOLINE. They DO run autos without gasoline, all right! It is possible for one to TRAVEL that way, but in ONE DIRECTION ONLY-DOWN HILL! Coastng down grade is not hard but the hill climb of COMPETITION that calls for POWER! In business the way to be ready to buck circumstances, and take the grades as they COME, is to ADVERTlSE—advertise in the most effective of ALL selling forces—The NEWSPAPERS! Is there anything abo...
