LET ME BE CONFIDENTIAL
To lots of folks, it does, sound uiihelievalde
that sick people can be made well without medi
cine. And how adjusting the spine can help
headaches, and rheumatism, and such things,
coc seem, at lirst thought to be rather far
fetched. Years ago, when 1 was doing shorthand re
porting for a large .Medical Society, 1 became
prejudiced (lyuinsl 'hiroprnetic, from listening
to my medical friends hooting the claims of a
Dr. Axtell. who was practicing in my home city.
They said that he should be stopped from prac
ticing, that he was a quack of the lirst water,
and a danger to the sick of our community. And
I think they sincerely believed it, too.
Hut one day I passed Dr. Axtell's ollice, ami
his waiting room was crowded. I saw him, as
he ushered a patient out, and he didn't look
like a man who would be insincere llliinisclf ;
he looked, rather, like a man who had a kindly
interest in the well-being of his fellow men.
Then, one summer day, I was lifting my
canoe into the water, and my foot slipped on
the wet dock, and in saving the frail canoe, I
wrenched my back. -My family doctor, the most
prominent in the city and a member of the fac
ulty of the -MedicaU;o liege, advised me to wear
a belt to support my spine, and-it would soon
heal. 1 wore the belt, but it did not get belter.
A few months later, I was in I'ortland, Ore
gon, and called at the Hacilic Chiropractic Col
lege, to visit a friend who was then a student.
My student friend finally called in Dr. Howell,
the 1'resident of the college, in consuliat ion con
cerning my wrenched back. A simple, quick
adjustment, and the vertebra slipped into place,
ami the pit in Ujt!
In their clinics I saw wonders being perform
ed that I knew had baffled my Medical Society
friends. 1 talked with the clinic patients, and
learned their history. 1 heard from their own
lips their story of improving health, when spec
ialist sifter specialist had given them no help or
encouragement, and they were finally driven to'
a Chiropractic free clinic, after their money
and hope were almost gone. Chiropractic was
their last straw!
And right there 1 knew Chiropractic had in
it something that Medicine lacked. They were
rrumriny I he aiuxr, when my medical friends
had been only trail iny thv vjjatx! Within two
years, I was enrolled as a student in that Insti
tution, ami as time goes on, and I roll up suc
cess after success in my Scroll of Daily Work,
my enthusiasm never wanes, because 1 know the
satisfaction of him who serves others, when he
turns their Darkness into Light, their Despair
into Hope, and their Sickness into Health.
I want I'll iropi ttclic to merit your ( oulidcin !

Kauni High School
The Lihue Social Hall was the scene
of much merriment last Thursday
afternoon. The occasion was the In
itlation of thirty-five new members
into the Kauai High School corps of
the Girl Reserves. The affair was
given, by the four old members, with
the kind aid of Miss Soule.
The program consisted of a few
comical stunts through which the
candidates were put. which caused no
small amount of noise and fun. Fol
lowing this was the initiatory .program
which admitted the girls into the club.
The business over, the girls sat down
to refreshments consisting of ice
cream and cake, and to discuss the
various effects of the stunts upon the
On Monday the Sophomore English
class staged a debate, to which mem
bers of the other English classes were
most cordially invited. The subject
was: -Resolved: That the United
States should enter the League of
Nations." For a class that has never
debated before, they did excellently,
and deserve a great deal of praise.
The decision of the judges was given
in favor of the aflirmative, although
the negative had some very good
points and good speakers.
It is the plan of the English classes
to stage inter-class debates as soon as
they have become more accustonrVd to
the rules of the game.
We didn't have lunch in the new
domestic science building this Monday
after all. We postponed the great
event, until next Monday.
