Promotion for Nurses of M’Kinley

 

DRS. RIXEY AND PARK COMMEND PRIVATES FOR THEIR SERVICES
AND THEY ARE NOW TAKING EXAMINATIONS.

     The men nurses, or orderlies, who were selected to attend the late President McKinley during his illness at the Milburn home, may soon have something more substantial than the general approval of the public for their faithful services.
     Yesterday Doctors Park and Rixey, two of the President’s attending physicians, sent certificates of commendation to all three for their efficient work. It was not possible last evening to ascertain the exact wording of these certificates from the men who had received them, but from another source it was learned that the physicians wrote of the services of the men in very flattering terms.
     John Hodgins and Ernest Vollmeyer, the two privates who attended the President, have been recommended to the Department at Washington to be allowed to write on an examination for promotion, and in fact are now trying their examinations at the model hospital camp at the Exposition, under the supervision of Dr. Edward L. Munson, in charge of the camp. They will write about a week and will not know the result of the examinations for three or four weeks.
     Should they be promoted, as in all probability they will be, their pay will be increased about 40 per cent [sic].
