Hospital Notes

From Black Hills Echoes, Company 762, November 1939. Black Hills Echoes was official paper of Company 762, CCC Camp F-12, Custer, South Dakota. Published monthly by the Journalism Class.

will only hurt a little bit

We are glad the Spinal Meningitis shots went over without any casualties. At the present time we have no patients in the hospital.

We want to inform you that during the icy weather the axe and pick are very dangerous tools. So be careful boys because we would like to keep tine hospital vacant this winter, as it looks much better in this way.

The hospital now has a new orderly. Homer Sondreal, Finley, North Dakota, has assumed the duty of dispensing of pills, iodine and tape. His cheerful personality will calm many a nervous patient when he tells them that it will only hurt a "little bit."

Clarence Hoff, of Wilton, ND. is his assistant.
