SWANSEA HOSPITAL. VACANCY CANVASSING NUISANCE. COL MORGAN SUGGESTS A "PERSONAL LEAGUE." Swansea Hospital Board met on Wednes- day, Mr. H. Macdonell presiding. Arising out of the House Committee's minutes re Casualty Department, Col. Mor- gan moved deletion of the words after "out patients" in the following:—"The depart ment to be worked by the Casualty Sister, E-nd tho Out Patient nurse. The sister to take full charge of the Casualties, Out- patients, and the proposed Electro Thera- peutic Room, and to a.ct as the deputy Theatre Sister." He said it was a small question. The Casualty Sister was given certain work to do at the recommendation of the Medical Staff and House Committee. Is was found to be utterly impracticable in working it out. In justice to the Matron, &lit, from the beginning, thought it could not possibly be worked. All practically agreed that the change was necessary.—The motion was carried. With reference to canvassing for appoint- ments, 24 replies were received from various Hospitals, 7 only of which prohibited can vassing. Col. Morgan said they could not I aUer it. He did not think the Board cou'd prevent it. Mr. Howel WTatkins Not even the new Government. (Laughter.) Col. Morgan said as the choice between two evils it would be better to leave the mat- ter alone. Dr. Brooks said people who subscribed would certainly endeavour to exercise in fluence. The only way toO check it would be by all appointments going to a Selection Committee. A member In Birmingham canvassing is encouraged. MT. Payne moved as an amendment: "That in all future advertisements, it should be stated that canvassing would be a dis- qualification." He would vote against any man who was known to have canvassed.. Mr. Howel Watkins thought the amend- ment impracticable. An "honest" man would not canvass, but he get relatives of influence to do so on his behalf. Col. Morgan offered to form a "personal league" against the practice. The amendment was eventually carried by 14 votes to 8. The resignation of Dr. Groves, house sur- geon, was accepted. Dr. Marks, assistant surgeon, was appointed to the position.—The question of appointing two House Surgeons was relegated to the House Committee. The tender of Mr. H. Billings, Swansea, of £255 for painting the inside and outside of the institution was accepted. Four other firms had tendered. The tender of Mr. Arthur Evans, Heath- field-street, Swansea, for electric lighting, was accepted at JS61. There were three other tenders.
