Judge Frazier stated today that the Grand Jury would be called for duty on Wednesday morning, Jan uary 15.

Estadt for duty on the grand jury and a few minutes later the name of John D. Wheeler was drawn from the jury wheel for duty as a petit juror. Two ministers were also drawn on the petit jury but they need not serve in this capacity, unless they so desire, according to law. Another familiar face to Caldwell on the petit jury is Rosa Clucus of Batesville, former sheriff of Noble county. There were only four women named on both jurys for the January term. Immediately after the drawing, Judge Frazier dismissed the petit jurors who had been drawn for the October term of court. The grand jury is as follows: W. J. Schott, Enoch Andrew Bates, Marion A. W.

The Noble County Society for Crippled Children, a group to be affiliated with the Ohio Society for Crippled Children, Inc., will be headed by Harold Morgar eidge, of the First National Bank, as its first president. Other individuals named to as sist Mr. Morgareidge in formulat ing an active county organization, include: Z. W. Mallett, of Summer field, vice president H. C. Secrest, county sc o o 1 superintendent, treasurer and Wallace C. Blake,, of Dexter City, secretary. Mrs. Marian Wells, representa tive of the Ohio society, was pres ent and outlined in detail the pur pose of such an organization. In organizing the local society, Mrs. Wells spoke encouragingly of the worthiness of such a society in Noble county, and pointed out, that Noble was one of the few counties in the state without an active or ganization to aid its crippled chil dren In discussing the new society, the state representative stressed that a program must be initiated by the officers and that such a program should be dedicated to the phys ical care, special education, and vocational guidance for the crippled children within its scope. The means to carry on this so cial work will be derived from the annual sale of Easter seals, some thing that is not entirely new to the people of this county. In years past, Noble county has responded to this sale, but the funds taken from their sale, were forwarded directly to Columbus. With the Noble County Society for Crippled Children now func tioning as an organization, funds derived from the sale of the Easter seals will be divided, 70 percent will be retained to carry on local social work, and the remaining 30 percent will be forwarded to the uhio society. The annual Easter seals sale has been sponsored by the Ohio society since 1936. At the meeting in the high school building, movies were shown to the group present of the camp for crippled children which operates through the efforts of the Ohio society, and made possible by the sale of Easter seals. The by-laws of the Noble county society imply that the society shall be non-partisan and non-sectarian and is not permitted to enter into membership with other groups or organizations. Although the society is permitted to cooperate with con ference groups working for the welfare of the crippled or other wise physically handicapped. It is expected that a meeting of the newly named officers and in terested individuals will be held in the near future, at which time additional plans for the organization will be mapped out. REPRESENTATIVE HERE A representative of the Internal Revenue department will be in Caldwell at the postoffice building, Monday, Jan. 6, for the purpose of assisting in filing income tax estim ates and income tax returns. An drew L. Raddy is the deputy collec tor for this district. DISMISSED FROM HOSPITAL Mrs. Jack Berry of Mt.
