■Workers in local non-agricultural I
employment, 40,051 of them veterans, ;
40,247 of them women and 6,275 of j
them physically handicapped, through [
local employment offices in the State,
it is revealed in a report made to
Chairman Henry E. Kendall of the
Employment Security Commission by
Director Ernest C. McCracken of its
North Carolina State Employment
Service Division.
Figures on activities of the local
employment offices show a slight drop
in most respects, but this is taken as
an index to improvement in labor con
dition- in the State, reflecting a more
stable employment condition. Most
of the drop from 1946 in local office
activities comes from relatively small
er numbers of veterans using the fa
cilities, indicating that more veteran?
had steady jobs in 1947 than during
the previous year.
At the end of 1947, local employ
ment offices had 6,904 unfilled orders
from employers for workers, the
smallest number carried over in any
year. This is only four per cent of
the total of 175,782 jobs listed fori

DR. GEORGE T. CRAWFORD
CHIgOPfiACTIC PHYSICIAN
ABOUT CROUP j
THIS disease usually affects chil
dren and occurs in spasmodic at
tacks at night. The child awakens
suddenly with a sense of suffocation
and a croupy cough. Breathing is in
tensely difficult, and the child’s face
becomes bluish in color. The condi
tion is caused by contraction of the
muscles of the larynx. The attacks
usually last about an hour but several
attacks may occur in succession, arid
usually recur for three or more nights.
Sometimes convulsions accompany the
attacks.
The treatment of croup in children
by Chiropractic adjustments has al
ways been most gratifying. There
are few complaints that yield so
readily to adjustments as does croup.
A single adjustment is usually all
that is necessary to bring the attack
to an abrupt end, and the attacks sel
dom recur. This is the experience of
Chiropractors all over the country.
Attacks of croup are caused by con
tractions of muscles which close the
larynx and prevent the passage of air.
These contractions are caused by im
proper nerve supply to the muscles
involved and this in turn is caused by
pressure on the nerves at the point
where they leave the spinal column.
As soon as the adjustment is given
and the pressure oh the nerve is re
leased, the nerve force passes to the
muscles of the larynx, the contraction
ceases and breathing again becomes
normal. There is no other form of
treatment which gives such'immediate
relief in croup as Chiropractic. We
have not done our duty to our children
until they have had the best and
quickest relief when they fall ill.
