Red Cross members on Monday

elected as, follows:'. Chairman, James
C. Mell; vice-chairman, Mrs. F. H.

community by having their own pf

branch, Highlands will now be a
. member of the National Red Cross
through the Macon County Chapter,
but will have its own executive

Dr. Padgett Thanks Hospital
For Treatment Of Children
More Than 100 Treated
In Clinics Since
The Press has received from Dr.
G. Padgett, of the Macon county
.teedth department, the following
article expressing appreciation for
the service rendered by Angel hos
pital to the children of Macon
.n the tonsil clinics1 conducted by
Drs. Furman and Edgar Angel:
Dr. Padgett's Letter
Through the generous cooperation
of the Angel hospital, the Macon
-ounty health department has this
.all been able to realize the fulfill
ment of one of its main purposes,
namely, to .secure corrections of the
physical defects of the children of
the county. Since September, the
Drs. Angel have conducted 13 con
secutive weekly tonsil clinics and
nave removed diseased tonsils and
adenoids from more than 100 chil
ren. These clinics have aided chil
iren from every school and com
nunity in the county. The number
f children receiving advantage of
his service from the Angel hos
ital is approximately double the
lumber of those given similar ser
vice in any of the other county
onsil clinics conducted in this dis-r
The generosity of the Angel hos;
ital in this matter is fully appre
ciated when you are informed that
almost 100 per cent of this service
las been rendered free. Probably
10 other private hospjal in this
itate has completed a similar hu
manitarian program of this propor
tion. The Angel hospital authorities
offered this service without . having
oeen asked to do so. The program
has been rather unique since it is
.he only one in this district that
has not made a blanket monetary
requirement on all who received the
iervice. Those who were unable to
jay for the operation received the
iame capable attention that they
would have had had they paid the
usual fee for Such a service.
Each operation performed has
been a success and recoveries have
oeen rapid and uneventful. .
These children will undoubtedly
experience a more healthy life in
the future: as a result of these op
erations. .. v
As the representative)! the 'Ma
con county health department, -1
wish to express to the Angel hos
pital due appreciation, for the. splen
did cooperation and invaluable ser
vice rendered to the cause of bet
ter health among the children of
Macon county. .
