Dr. CharUs Christal of this city, >was "a Roman Catholic." After the meeting had been officially declared to order and City Attorney John H. Laugenour, also city clerk of the board, read the .minutes of the previous meeting, call- ing for an acceptance which was duly- granted, the clerical work being well performed, Mayor Musgrove stated-that City Health Officer Alice Thomas had conferred with him in the hope for] greater co-operation in the matter of looking into the health of the city of Woodland, and in this .behalf suggested an advisory board, designated as city board of health.
