In pre-depression days, when we talked of welfarev we really meant wealth. when the infantile paralysis situation was approaching its worst. Some weeks ago Dr. Mitchell advised con tinuation of the suspension through August. But, since there has been on ly one case in the county in nearly six weeks, it was felt that there would be no risk involved in starting all Sunday school departments again next Sunday. These church schools have been greatly crippled by the ban against the children. Only adult and young people’s departments have been iri operation, and those schools which have been accustomed to having at. tendance marks of 300 to 400 have dwindled to around 100 or a little bet ter. Sunday school officials are calling on their department heads and teach ers to contact il pupils anad have them return next Sunday, and it is expected that the schools will rapidly snap back to normal.
