A LLUCI NATIONS
By Frank W. Hooper
The laborer that's worthy of his hire
Shall need not go from door to door
Nor beg of alms in circumstances dire;
The depths of poverty explore.
He that doeth no more than he is paid
Is never paid beyond his mead
And he that hath no pride in what he's made
Unhappy is, and poorly paid, indeed.
So try to show thyself approved of God
A workman needful of no shame
In lofty deeds or tilling of the sod
Your dignity of soul proclaim.
We're hirelings all as certainly as fate
"And only in humility"
The Master said "May anyone be great."
^Not cringing low servility.
Rewards for service rendered, small or great
May be in money, thanks or love
Or memories in store to compensate
But best of all His blessings from above.

IN V.A. HOSPITAL
What is a good volunteer, re-
marked Mrs. H. L. Shoap, in
speaking to the Board of Direc-
tors of the Collin County Chap-
ter, American Red Cross, and she
answered by saying—"a good vol-
unteer is one who forgets self—
uses his or her time and talents
in service for others—is willing
to cooperate and to conform to
(necessary rules and -policies." She
Btated that "those of us who work
in the Veterans Administration
Hospital, gray ladies, staff aides,
canteen, entertainment and sup-
ply service volunteers and shop-
pers are trained for specific work
,and you as board members are
(trained as volunteers for jobs dif-
ferent from ours, but all are part
of a gigantic organization that
peaches around the world, serving
humanity for over 75 years."
She highlighted her talk by
saying that five Red Cross Chap-
ters furnished volunteers to serve
in the McKinney Veterans Ilos-
pital—namely Collin, Denton, Dal-
las, Grayson and Hunt Counties
lind the 287 volunteers from these
chapters served 10,363 hours in
1956 in this hospital, alone. She
Reported these volunteers work-
ing in many capacities in their
own chapters and that Grayson,
Dallas and Hunt Counties respec-
tively send volunteers to Perrin
Air Force Base, Sherman, Dallas
Veterans Administration Hospital,
Dallas, and Terrell State Hospital,
Terrell, Texas. Canteen volunteers
serve refreshments in the recrea-
tion hall to all ambulatory pa-
tients each Wednesday afternoon
and only once monthly a Red
Cross Chapter conducts Open
House on Sunday afternoons for
patients and their guests—bring
a little bit of the outside world
(inside the hospital walls. Enter-
tainment and Supply Service vol-
unteers furnish variety shows,
play card games with the patients,
and the Shoppers come into town
and purchase items requested by
the patients. These Shoppers come
from the various churches in Mc-
Kinney. The gray ladies visit pa-
tients on the wards, write letters
for them to their families and
jfriends, take shopping orders, as-
sist the hospital staff with recrea-
tional activities, work in the Li-
brary, Central Service, and escort
wheel chair patients to and from
diagnostic clinics in the hospital.
Staff Aide volunteers assist in
Jjiany of these same activities as
well as helping with clerical de-
tails in the Special Services De-
partment in the hospital.
