THE NIGHTINGALE PLEDGE 

"l solemnly pledge myself before God and in the pres- 
ence of this assembly to pass my life in purity and to prac- 
tice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever 
is deleterious and mischievous, and will do all in my power 
to elevate the standard of my profession. And I will hold 
in confidence all personal matter committed to my keep- 
ing, and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the 
practice of my profession. With loyalty will I endeavor to 
aid the physician in his work. And devote myself to the 
welfare of those committed to my care."

W. HOUSTON MOORE, M. D. 



Dr. W. Houston Moore was born August 30, 1880. A well known and beloved physician who spent 
most of his medical career as an obstetrician. When his health failed, five years prior to his death, he 
specialized in dermotology. For seven years he served on the State Board of Medical Examiners of North 
Carolina. He was also a member of the American Medical Association and the New Hanover Medical 
Society. His hobby and greatest outside interest was Greenfield Park, and the annual Azalea Festival. 
After finishing his service to God and man, quietly and peacefully he slipped away on July 23, 1948.

MISS CLARA LOUISE WRIGHT, R.N. 



To Miss Clara Louise Wright, onetime President of the Texas League of Nursing Education, we 
wish to express with all our hearts our appreciation for her. She was an example of our profession with 
the highest honors and awards. Words can never express how her life, individually and professionally, 
influenced us and made us what we are today. 

Miss Wright first came to James Walker as director of Nurses on July i, 1944, and was loved and 
honored by everyone. After resigning on September 5, 1946, she returned to New Jersey, where after 
a long illness she passed away April 13, 1947.

BECAUSE 



Because we came with a willing heart, 
Because tee pledged and did our part, 
Because we learned when to work, when to play, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today. 

Because we were loyal and faithful and true, 
Because with eagerness we accepted the new, 
Because from our duties we never dared stray, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today. 

Because we brought new hope to the despaired, 
Because their problems with them we shared, 
Because we helped to banish dismay, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today. 

Because the newborn we mothered with care, 
Because the senile whimsies we'd share, 
Because we were "angels" in white array, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today. 

Because to the suffering we brought relief, 
Because for their loved ones we alleviated grief, 
Because for the dying we stopped to pray, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today. 

Because for the blind and the lame we'd ivrite, 
Because we made their days grow bright, 
Because great tribute to them we'd pay, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today. 

Because we've lived through terror and strife, 
Because on our skill depended a life, 
Because we gave and sought no pay, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today. 

Because together we laughed and we cried, 
Because together our obstacle we defied, 
Because together we worked all the way, 
That's why we are R.N.'s today.

Biggest Flirt 
HAZEL WHITE 



Coping with studies, 
Trembling with fear, 
Eager to be noticed, 
So began otir first year. 

As we, the preclinicals of 1945, walked the halls of good old James Walker, we 
were very proud to be here. There were twenty of us, very shy and eager to learn. The 
classes were very heavy but they did not interfere with our midnight snacks and occa- 
sional showers with the fire extinguisher. 

As days and weeks passed we lost many of our classmates. Some entered fields of 
matrimony while others went into the business world. 

At the end of our six months' period we were invited to the office where we waited 
eagerly to be interviewed. We were told that we had been accepted in this school 
of nursing. A few days later we were planning our capping exercises. That was a very 
exciting night for all of us. Miss Britt and Miss Goff presented us with our white 
caps. That was the beginning of our training, and much loved three to eleven. 

We were very proud to be asked to dress the Christmas tree that year. We had a 
nice program and lots of fun at the party. The next morning we were awakened by 
girls running up and down the hall burning sparklers, which we had purchased from 
Taylors Fireworks. 

And now that ive're older 

And know a few ropes 

This year will be easier, 

Thought u>c Juniors, full of hopes.- 

In our junior year we were settled enough to think about class officers. Joyce Hall 
was elected our President. Our class sponsors were Dr. Robertson and Miss Yount. They 
have been wonderful to us. One of our important events was the trip to Brookgreen 
Gardens in South Carolina. 

We were very excited making plans for our banquet, which turned out to be a very 
enjoyable evening. We were very proud of our corsages of carnations recehed from 
Dr. Robertson for this event. 

Trying to be dignified 

While walking our last mile, 

Thanking James Walker for three glorious years, 

We seniors depart with a tear and a smile. 

Gee! but time flies. We have received our senior bands, and have begun to realize 
that our responsibilities are increasing. We were eager to receive any new ideas for our 
annual. Mr. Messick, our Business Advisor, is to be greatly appreciated by the Senior 
Class for his help in making this annual possible. Our biggest financial source was sell- 
ing ads and Christmas cards, but the one we enjoyed most was raffling cakes. 

When we think of parting it is such sweet sorrow, but as we think of what is in 
store for us it is easier. We want to thank everyone who helped us while we struggled 
through these years. 

We shall endeavor to hold fast to the knowledge we have obtained and high stand- 
ards of our profession. So here's to our future! May we reach our goal for which we 
have long strived.

County of New Hanover 
City of Wilmington

body, do individually and collectively will and bequeath our most highly prized possessions

Article I 
To our parents and friends we wish to express our heartiest thanks, undying love and 
memory for believing in us and helping us to achieve our goal.

with us and the sympathy they have shown in regards to our mistakes. .

Section 2. To the Freshmen we bequeath our midnight jam sessions in hopes that they 
will have as much fun as we have had. 

Section 3. To the Juniors and Seniors of 1950 we leave our special privileges in hopes

Article IV 

Section 1. Hilda Hearn leaves her ability to get excited to Helen Bradham in hopes that

form him as I never could.

By Madame Pee Wee 



Girls, this looks bright to me. Here's a note at the top of the bowl which says, 
"Get what you want and pay for it." 

Dellie, my girl, I can see great things in the future for you. You in your nursery 
singing a sweet little lullaby to a tiny little bundle. But before this bundle you 
will have a very successful life in obstetrics, where you will find your Doctor McGee. 

Joyce and Lill, your date of graduation won't be too soon. You already can hear 
those bells ringing. And they don't sound like they are ringing just for church. It 
couldn't be that Elwood and Robert can hear the same ones too. (Could be.) 

Sparkie, you are a good girl. By saying just what you think to all these sweet 
doctors around here. I can just see that sign on your door come true: 



SUPERINTENDENT OF 
NURSES! 



You, White, I see many of your rich patients and doctor's sons returning that Pep- 
sodent smile. You will go a long way and see our dear old Alma Mater grow in many 
ways. 

Page, dear, anyone could just look in your face and see the typical, nice, neat old 
maid, but it looks as if The Basin is going to change things. Maybe your looks. Who 
knows? Yes, here is 7-3 private duty in Southern Pines. 

Taylor, Reese, and Ward, you are as changeable as the breeze. When and if we get 
that R.N. attached to our names. Let's just be gypsies. See wide open spaces and love 
'em and leave 'em. 

Myself, I think I'll join the three gypsies who are going to travel. I think four would 
make a nice tribe. If?????? George, Doug, Ben and John don't interfere. We might 
could cruise by Hartford, Conn., Cuba, Raleigh, and the Sound. 

Better not look any further. I might see something.

She got your name and got mine too. 

Off went the radios, click went the lights, 

And all was still and dark as night. 

From each door a head was thrust 

And Essie said, "I see you, and I'll report you or bust!"
