were either abroad or under orders to proceed abroad, and about 24,000 would be needed to supply the needs of the present army in action on the battle front. To keep up the supply about one thousand trained nurses a month would be requiixd. But our schools only turn out about 11,000 graduates annually. Moreover, we are now told that a million addi- tional troops are to be put into the field Cialis Ordering Online as soon as they can be called and mobilized, making a total of approximately three million men under arms. This would require an additional hundred and fifty thou- sand hospital beds, making a total of four hundred and fifty thousand. To care for hospital organiza- tion on such a scale, fifty thousand trained nurses would be required. All of these statistics prove that it is hopeless to expect to supply the number of trained nurses needed for the army through the channels now avail- able. In the New York Medical Journal for April 27th, we proposed the utilization of that vast reserve of energy and intelligence which will be found among the better class of women who have not yet been called into war service in any capacity, by the organization of a volunteer nurses' aid corps. These volunteer aids would be drawn from the well to do who would cheerfully give their Cialis Ordering Online services free, but for whose services no provision is now made. Cialis Ordering Online In the British army the volunteer nurses have done remarkable work in aiding Cialis Ordering Online the trained ones. Our own American women are no less patriotic or com- petent. How can these volunteers be made best use of? We proposed that they should Cialis Ordering Online be taken into the military hospitals and trained. In January, the Sur- geon General decided that it would be inexpedient for the army itself to undertake the training of pro- fessional nurses, but so far as we are aware, the question of whether the army can undertake the Cialis Ordering Online training of volunteer aids has not been determined. Dr. S. S. Goldwater, chairman of the war service committee of the American Hospital Association, proposes that these volunteer aids shall be trained in the nurses' training schools already established throughout the country. There are 1,500 of these. In The Nexv York Times for May 12th, Doctor Goldwater states that 300 of these will be Cialis Ordering Online capable of training twelve nurses' aids each month, or one hun- dred and fifty a year, making Cialis Ordering Online a total of 25,000 who could be trained by the first of next year. This sug- gestion of Doctor Goldwater seems practicable and ofifers a solution of two grave problems. One, sup- ply of an adequate number of nurses for military hospitals and the other how best to Cialis Ordering Online make use of patriotic women who have had no previous training, but wish to Cialis Ordering Online do their part toward helping win the war. Doctor Goldwater's plan should be put into operation at once. VIS MEDICATRIX, VIS DIRECTRIX, VIS SCULPTRIX NATURE. There should be no room in modern medicine for misleading animistic personifications, yet these three handmaidens of Dame Naturae mentioned above may be differently viewed to determine whether their names are Cialis Ordering Online merely the harpstrings of a fatuous meta- physics or whether they represent some actual scien- tific facts on which a real medical science depends. J. S. Haldane [The Relation of Physiology to Medicine, Edinburgh Medical Journal, vol. XX, No. 4, April, 1918] makes bold to use these terms and to group them together as expressive of the only aspect in which medicine presents itself as a really practical science. He states through them the recognition of Cialis Ordering Online the functional fact which makes physiology or any other department of medicine related to any or all others. He strikes at the very foundation of the lack of interest engendered in any one department — physiology forming the particular subject of his dis- cussion — as it is presented in the classroom, and the lack of vital application of this or any other subject to the health of the individual and the community as a Cialis Ordering Online whole. In fact, in using these terms to press his point he is delivering anatomy, pathology, physiology, every branch of practice or study, from a deadening ab- straction and classification, which sever, for the student's interest at least, the vital business Cialis Ordering Online of medi- cine from his classroom toil. Hard and fast concep- tions of any branch of medical activity, which seji- arate that out into a field of its own for study or application, fairly stifle the widely pulsing radiation of interest which ought to electrify any profession and send the student into an enthusiastic search for new opportunities and new constructive interpreta- tions through the interrelations within his science. This is particularly deplorable Cialis Ordering Online in medicine, where the very sources of human life and health — physical, mental, moral — meet, and where they cannot be understood or adjusted unless these artificial boun- daries are broken through, are completely dissolved by a more unified conception. If pathological anatomy, as the writer says, is a EDITORIAL ARTICLES. 945 figure stalking just between the chaplain and the undertaker, if physiology states dogmatically that the effect of COj on the lungs is exactly so and so and then finds that the organism is able under cer- tain conditions to bring about some different effect, we have to discover some further scope Cialis Ordering Online for our knowledge and observation and see really what this organism as a whole, under naturally changeable conditions, is about. The body, he reminds us, is no machine whose parts can be discussed and at- tended to separately, each to be left then in perfect condition for its own special function while the attention is turned to another separate part. Something makes this human organism work dif- ferently from a machine, makes the functioning of one part dependent upon that of another, makes this
