V The president of the Cincinnati Alumnae, Mrs. Gaylord Burke, entertained Mary Jo overnight in her home. i l? The American Committee on Maternal Welfare sponsored T, the Fifth American Congress on Obstetrics and Gynecology, L l which was held in Cincinnati during the first week in April. The . Frontier Nursing Service, an organization member of the Ameri- can Committee, was invited to give a demonstration of a home 5 delivery at the Congress. Betty Lester and Jane Furnas were in H charge of the exhibit which attracted much attention from the more than 3,000 registrants at the Congress, and was awarded _: an honorable mention by the Scientific Exhibits Committee.
