At points the description of the senator becomes acrid, but Mr. Cash shows a familiarity with the poli tical conditions in the state and makes it clear that the former gov ernor is an outstanding example of the environment in which he was brought up. Is No Heflin. In portraying the Morrison chav acteristlcs, Cash desires It to be known ^hat the North Carolina senator isn't a Heflin or Blease. He wrtoes: “Let no one, however, ima gine this to mean that he (Morri son* is to be thought of as such another galoot as the late Thomas J. Heflin of Alabama, or the equal ly late Cole L.

The article (joints its theme to | the dry-wet issue in 1932. Morrison, (the writer declares, will do his best to unhorse Raskobism. but failin'? will not desert the party in the gen eral election.

Miss Beam told me that in this clinic Dr. Gold of Shelby, operated tipon 100 Clew - land county school children. 25 children each day for 4 days. Be fore the children were taken to the' operating table they were thor oughly examined by Dr. Gold and Dr. Gaw one of the state doctors. There were eight nurses assisting with the operations and caring for the children. Each child was kept one day and one night tinder the care of the doctors and nurses. "The fee charge for the clinic op erations was $12.50, however there was a goodly number of children operated upon without pay tor aft er investigation Miss Beam found a number who needed the operation badly, but they were absolutely un able to pay anything. She advised all who were able to do so, to have the operations done at the Shelby hospital and give the place to the more unfortunate ones. Miss Beam says that she had more than 200 applications from school children. Said she was so sorry that 'hey had only time to take care of Just 100 children. She says that the health department of the county should and she thinks will do a great deal of follow up work until every child who Is not able to have the opera tion on account of the money can be taken care of in some way. Miss Beam says that tn this 12 years that she has been with the State department that they have operated upon more than 25.000 school children. This year they op erated on 1966 school children in 30 counties. Every county in the state has had *>,« opportunity of having the clinic once every three years ii they wanted it. Miss Beam said that the people of Shelby and Clev eland county seemed to appreciate the clinic so much and the people and doctors visited them ard did all they could to cooperate with them. As we think of this fine work offered by our state it make' us feel proud that wc live in a state where so many poor people are cared for in this way as well a other branches of the health depart ment.” Vests And Speech Must Be Spotless Galesburg.

Senator William E.

They reason that as there is so littie gold in the world it has no right to continue as the basis of international trade, more es pecially as America holds half of the world's supply.
