bettn from the moment the nurses
sought to envelop her tiny frame In a
hospital night dress.
"Take it away." she cried, "and brine;
me a suit of pajamas. I wouldn't
wear that thing, hospital or no hos
pital." The hospital rules prescribe that
women patients shall be encased In
night dresses. There were no women's
pajamas In the establishment. The
house surgeons were called Into con
clave. They entered Dr. Mary's room
and argued with her to yield to the
"Never." she cried: "1 wear nothing
but pajamas. Find me a suit of
pajamas or wrap me in a sheet. f
know what t want to wea'r and what I
Intend to wear." '
Another conference was held among
the nurses and doctors, and after a
terrlnc straining at red tape a way
was found to provide the. pstient with
pajamas. Immediately these enveloped
her emaciated form she felt better at
one and dropped off to sleep.
But when she awoke this morning
