Photograph article dated March 13, 1961 partially reads, "The 40 days and 40 nights designated by our churches as the season of Lent has the great significance to me as a Christian whether I am in the nursing profession or another chosen field. As a registered nurse, however, my beliefs and ideals are reflected in the respect I show for the rules of my church and by my conduct at work, at home, at all times. This is a standard by which I try to gauge my way of life. I am not alone. All peoples have a standard - a philosophy of life, and whether they profess it or not, it is shown in their pattern of everyday living." Mrs. Margaret Newsome, R.N. (pictured), who penned this article, is a staff nurse at Valley Presbyterian Hospital, Van Nuys, and a member of St. Genevieve Catholic Church, Van Nuys.
