Miss Gladys Halsall Again Heads Big Sister Club

Miss Gladys Halsall was re-elected president of the Big Sister Club at the annual meeting held recently at which Miss Gertrude Hall, supervisor of nursing at the Calgary General Hospital, was guest speaker.
In 1951 Miss Hall was appointed for a five-year term on the expert committee on nursing of the World Health Organization of the United Nations and in her talk on "Health", she discussed the basic principles laid down by the W.H.O.
CLUB REPORTS reviewed the activities of the year. Director, Mrs. Hilda Brown, reported that 91 Little Sisters had been assisted in various ways and the average enrolment had been 70. Twelve Little Sisters attended Camp Kiwanis and 12 others who were to have attended were unable to when the Alberta polio epidemic closed the camp. During the year 11 Little Sisters found full or part-time employment.
Miss Bunty Niven, leader of the group work committee, reported an average attendance of 30 to 35 Little Sisters at the Friday night meetings. A picnic is planned for early this month.
Other officers on the slate are: vice-president, Miss Rose Woodhams; secretary-treasurer, Miss Rothnie Montgomerie-Bell; social convener, Mrs. L. E. Workman.
