No Question of Religion. Clergymen of all denominations are welcome to minister to any mem- bers of their flock who are at the Infirmary. I The books of St. Vincent's Infirm- ary show that during the entire thirty [years of set,,ice, more than 90 per cent of the patients admitted for hos- pital treatment were not members of the Catholic Clmrch, and the records also show a very large percentage of ch.arity work done by this institution. Thanks are tendered to the many kind friends who have contributed to he advancement of the good work !one at the Infirmary. Free Beds and Rooms. Among the many ways in aiding the Sisters in their great work of charity is the maintenance of free beds and private rooms. A free bed may be maintained in a ward one year for the sum of $300; a private room for $500, a perpetual free bed for $5,000, a perpetual free room for $10,000. Nurses' Training School. The training school for nurses at St. Vincent's, under the care and di- rection of Sister Bernard, is one of the most creditable training schools in the South, sixty nurses being regular- ]y in training. An alunmae of 200 members known as the St. Vincent's Alumnae Association is one of the very energetic and active organiza- tions of the city. The officem are Mrs. A. M. Zell, president; Miss An- nie Hogshead, vice-president; Mrs. Oscar Duebler, secretary, and Miss Lillian Atwood, treasurer. The Alum- [nae are very intent on the erection of a "Nurses' Home" at St. Vincent's, which they plan to furnish when com- pleted. I forms an exceedingly important part of a hospital's activities. The scarc- ity of nurses in the past will be re- lieved by this new addition. Hospital i training is a great inducement for l intelligent and vigorous young women. !It is a noble profession and if a home- i like atmosphere is created for young iwomen, with separate rooms provided as well as comforts and conveniences, i we may expect more of our young girls to take up the profession. Wig.1 all of these improvements on foot the Guardian hopes to come be-: fore its readers in our next year's edi- t!on with a description of a bigger I and most modern St. Vincent's. I St. Vincent's Aid. i There are few sources from which the Sisters of Charity may depend for: i finaneial assistance in caring for .the l indigent sick, but one of the most active and best known is the St. Vin- cent's Aid Society, an organization of non-Catholic as well as members of the Catholic Church, its sole purpose being to aid the charity work of ffhe institution: The only requisite for a beneficiary is the recommendation of some dependable person, and that they are St. Vincent's Aid patients is ktJown only to the Sister Superior and the person placing them there/ the umost secrecy being used to guard I:he feelings of the one whose condi- tion makes such assistance necessary. St. Vincent's Aid patients receive every attention possible, physicians and surgeons of the city contributing their skill and .helping to eradicate disease.
