News Dr. L. B. Moremen writes:
'Please state in the paper that I am

vir.ee some that I am In earnest about
The report that Dr. Moremen would
leave Irvington must have had its
origin from the fact that he is plan
ning to leave the first of the year for

ward to a splendid future there. He
has a large practice, excellent business
interosts and valuable friends enough
to keep a man In any town.
Dr. Moremen Is not a man of one
view, of one book, but he takes hold of
every opportunity to enlarge his world.
He believes that Irvington possesses
the secrets of success and satisfaction
as much so, if not more, than any
town, and ia Irvington he will stay.
The pooplo of Irvington will be re
lieved to know that the report is false.
The town and community appreciates
Dr. Moremen they depend on him as
a physician, a citizen and a leader ia
