During World War II, conscientious objectors William and Dorothy Gauchat worked in a hospital for exceptional children. They served for four years, twelve hours a day, six days a week. The cutting off of government funds meant that tiny children were starving, filthy, and naked for want of the basic care a more adequate staff could provide. Millions of people have since seen the terrible sights of the wards in vast hospitals for the retarded. This story is a picture of what could be done. It is a story of the courage, the cheerfulness, even the delight which can be a part of a life of dedicated service, such as the Gauchats. With a forward by Dorothy Day.
