Dr. Don Williams and Dr. Harvey Price, local veterinarians, were also instrumental in securing large amount" of stock for testing.

Mrs. John Bassfield has been real busy the last few days helping her relatives who were ill. They all tried to take the flu at once.
She helped her daughter, Mrs. Joe Beaver.', with her children and her daughter-in-law with her family and 'he said her sister's family had all had it too. They are all residents of Ada. And who of all people nowr has the flu, but Mrs. Bassfield herself!
I'm truly sorry to hear of so much illness in this community but for one time my family is all well for which I’m very thankful.
I'm sure that everyone like myself is enjoying these nice sunshiny days we’ve been having recently. Le1'- hope that they continue for awhile.
