Kristina was the first patient to use the new tub, which was just acquired by the hospital. She estimates that she labored in the tub "It far exceeded my expectations and I was expecting a lot." Kristina Smith for four hours and at one time feared that she had stalled the labor process until she was out of the tub for 10 minutes and the pain of the contractions resumed full force. Kristina said she would recommend the tub to all mothers. "It far exceeded my expectations and I was expecting a lot."

Corona said that tho tub io an excellent option for most women and urges them to discuss its use with their physician. In addition to the new equipment, the hospital welcomed two new members to its group of OB nurses -- Angle Dillingham and Molly Millikin. ir from Vietnam were talking earlier this semester about their experiences relocating to the U.S. Blanco told them that when he first came to the U.S. for college, he barely spoke English. Associating with other international students at his college's International Club really helped him learn the language and integrate into the new culture. Maybe, they thought, there are students at FRC in a similar situation. A club could help them. Blanco filed the papers to start the club, and student interest rocketed. The club decided its first project would be to hold a cultural fair. Students on campus will set up tables and represent their cultures through various ways, including song, dance, games and food. Cultures that will be represented include Hawaiian, Maidu, Scottish, Australian, English, Mexican, Brazilian and Indian. "We'll all just be mixing and learning about each other's cultures," said Prichard, also the club's advisor. "We want everyone to converse, and let people find out about the diversity here." The fair will take place April 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the lower green, near the campus library. Since the event is celebrating diversity, organizers encourage the public to attend.
