Under the management of the
Parent-Teachers Association the first
program for the new year will take
place in the auditorium of the High
SchPool on Thursday afternoon," Jan
uary 12, at 3:15 o'clock.
The program will consist of an in
teresting course of lectures on child
life from pre-natal stage to adoles-.
cence. Dr. Quails will give the first
lecture on Thursday afternoon on
pre-natal care and influence.
The second lecture will be on Jan
uary 26 at Westover School, given by
Miss Butler, our local Health Nurse.
Subject: Infant Care. ;
The remaining parts of the pro
gram will he given in lecture form
by good and competent speakers at
dates to be announced later.
Interesting musical numbers will
be given. to add to our programs. We
feel sure that these lectures are very
important and should be very inter
esting, and as a large per cent of in
fant deaths is due to ignorance on
the part of the mother, before and
after birth, every mother and girl bf
marriageable age should be interest
ed enough to attend and take advan
tage of the benefits from these lec
tures. -
: A special invitation is extended to
the mothers who have children at
Westover for the second lecture.

taken home in a critical condition.
Drs. Hibbits and White were called

a rib broken, 'which perhaps saved
the boy from greater danger, i It is
understood that the patient . is inv
proving. "

Postmaster's Greetings.
To the patrons of the post office
greeting: 1 ' . . '
On behalf of the employees of this
office, I extend to you my heartiest
Christmas greetings.
I feel that it would be ungrateful
to fail to thank you for the liberal
patronage extended to this office this .
year. Notwithstanding the general
financial depression,. the misfortunes
in business, etc., in our little city,
the post office has had the largest
business both in volume and amount
of gross receipts ever. The parcel
post business is growing by leaps and 1
bounds. We attribute this to your
confidence in , the parcel post sys
tern as the cheapest and best method
of transportation of articles carried
by that system. , :. '
It has been our purpose to render
service to the people, realizing that"
we are SERVANTS of the people. We
have received many , helpful sugges
tions from business men which have
been incorporated in our , business
policies. ; We hope to have this same
splendid spirit of co-operation con
tinue. We assure you that much.
good in service will be the result. : ?
With kindest wishes of the season, v
, Sincerely,
G. W. PHEBUS, JR.. 'A;..
