STOP DOCTORS FEES
FOR RELIEF CASES -0 On Thursday evening, Decem ber 5th, the Board of County Com missioners met with the members of the Halifax County Medical Society at Itoanoke Rapids Hos pital for a mutual discussion oi the problem of medical care foi the unemployable relief cases. Until quite recently the Fed eral Government has been allow ing the physicians of the count} a small fee for office cells an< mileage for home visits, but re cently orders were issued all re lief offices to stop immediately such payments, and the govern ment will now be responsible for only those cases that are injured while at work on approved proj ects. After a free discussion of the problem, both by members of the society and the commissioners present, it was the opinion of those present that something '■hould be done, but it was hard to say just what could be done a the present time, and for this res son a committee of three physi cians was appointed to study th< subject and to confer with the commissioners with an idea o! formulating some rule or system that would be mutually agreeable to all concerned. -o For Bride-Elect -0 Miss Margie Collier, bride elect, was honored on Monday evening by Miss Kathrine Wolhar and Mrs. Morris Nielson jointly en tertaining with a bridge shower at the home of Miss Wolhar.
