It will, however, only be available through your'family physician and there will be no skin testing done af terwards. The conclusions from last year’s study have not yet been published by the United States Public Health Ser vice in Washington, but many of the residents in Worcester County have noticed themselves that they have been more free of colds and grippe than ever before and as we all know these two conditions are generally the forerunner to pneumonia. It is advised that those who receiv ed the injection last year repeat this year. I believe all the residents of our County should take advantage of this opportunity, as it has only been in the State of Maryland that Dr. Fel ton has started the use of this anti • gen. The material has now been distrib uted to the private doctors through out the County who have expressed their desire to give it and I again ad vise all of you who wish to receive AND $1.60 The Year In Advance.

Purchased by the Philadelphia A’s the following year, he proved to be the nearest home run rival to Babe Ruth in the 12 years he clubed all types of hurling while wearing a Quaker City uniform. When Connie Mack broke up his titu lar array of hitters, Foxx was peddled to Boston where he still continued to star. Included in the large assemble of guest speakers will be Dell Foxx, Jimmy’s Dad, considered at one time as one of the outstanding catchers on the Shore.
