And it shall be unlawful after January 1st, 1923, for any

provisions of this sub-title shall be styled and known as a

tion. The registrant shall pay to the said Board of Examiners

Section 208E. And be it further enacted, That this sub-
title shall not be construed to affect or apply to the gratuitous
nursing of the sick or members of the family, or shall not
prohibit any one not a "Licensed Practical Nurse" from nurs-
ing for hire, provided such person shall not hold his or herself
out as a "Licensed Practical ISTurse."
