Tkirty i i THE GUARDIAN ._ .......  .............. HOME FOR NURSES WILL BE OPENED EARLY IN JANUARY We present the architect's drawing of the new nurses' home to be erected in connection with St. Vincent's In- firmary, construction of which now is almost completed. The home will be used exclusively for student nurses in training, whose constantly increasing number, with the large number seeking admission to the institution this fall, had made an immediate enlargement of their living quarters essential. prices and the difficulties and uncer- tainties of building delayed them, un- til in the past few months it has be- come evident that the nurses' home must be built at any cost, in order to relieve ,the congestion of the hospital and to make room for new depart- ments. One of the requirements laid down for a standard hospital is a separate and complete accommodation for the students of nursing during their course. The new building is situated on the southwest corner of the infrmary grounds, at Eleventh and Bishop streets. It is of fireproof construction throughout, and will contain, besides class rooms and an assembly hall, and For three years the sisters in laboratories, private rooms for each charge of the hospital have been anx-. student, and private parlors for the ious to begin work on this very essen- lentertainment of guests, including tial part of the institution. But high four floors. The interior is finished in hard wood and all corridors will be tiled. The basement will contain a laundry, and the roof will be arranged to serve as a recreation walk in inclement. weather. The cost when completed will be about $75,000. Gianochio & Sanders designed the building, and the con- struction has been under the super- vision of Lavack & Son, of Little Rock. People, more or less naturally, often are angry when they find themselves deceived, but the hnitation of Christ says: "Trust not, nor lean upon a reed full of wind.

Contact Wilh White Races Is Bring. ing Many Changes. Changes in the clmarcter of the Es- kimos, due to their contact with white races, are described by Dr. W. E. Ekblaw, a geologist and bontanist of the Crocker Expedition, in Ecology (Brooklyn). He gives a most inter- esting and instructive account of the Polar Eskimo, the most northern peo- ple of the world, a group of a few hundred persons that has maintained itself fo" a thousand years or mo under the most adverse conditions, by complete adaptation t6 their environ- ment. We quote an abstract from Good Health (Battle Creek, Mich.), whose editor, Dr. J. H. Kellogg, calls their association with whites "a great I object lesson in race degeneracy." We read: "Recent contact with the white race is changing the Eskimo's mode of life, his culture, his character, so that they are no longer solely the efl'ect of his environment.

Rifles and ammunition have gaining his high mark transformed his hunting methods and increased his stores of food, clothing and fuel, and made hunting and liv- ing easier. Needles, and thread, and cloth, and cooking implements have immeasurably aided the Eskimo wom- en. 'lea, coffee afd tobacco are in- sidiously weakening the Eskimo phys- ique. By contact with foreigners the Eskimo. is losing his native honesty, independence and sterling character. He is changing so fast that iu another decade or two he will be quite an- other person. His direct relationship to his homeland will be lost and his dependence upon the exterior world finally established. The demoraliza- tion of the Polar Eskimo as a distinct social unit is immin.ent and inevit- able." In Dr. Kellogg's belief, if "our high- ]y intelligent American citizens con- tinue to use tea, coffee and tobacco, we shall suffer ultimately the same . degenerating effects that our remote cousins of the Arctic are undergoing." --Literaxy Digest. WHITE COI, I, AR JOBS ARE PAYING LESS Marked Decrease Noted According to Employment Burean Reports. The salaries of "white collar" work- ers are 10 to 20 per cent less now than they were in September, 1921, and are steadily dropping, according to the monthly report issued recently by the American employment Exchange of New York. Accountants, bookkep- ers,' clerks and stenographers have been accepting positions this month at pay that shows a marked decrease even from August. The only position that has held its own in pay and even advanced a little is that of office boy or office girl. The average weekly wage of office boys report says that the stenographers, however, is i 'as compared with that for The man clerk's pay is 10" per cent below last no sign of it increasing:. for the last three months is ly, as compared with $26 bookkeeper is also cent less pay, and the of his salary is markedly showed him averaging $29 It g'ust $26, while September  accepting $25.82, as last fall's average of .
