Be a helper! DO THIS FOR SOME CHILD! WEDNESDAY NOV. 5 at the: MT. PLEASANT SQUARE STARTING AT 10:30 A. M. WHEN You Were a Kid DID YOU EVER HA VE A BAD TOOTH? lf you did, you made a beeline for the Dentist s Chair and what a relief to have that tooth treated, or filled, or pulled. And Dad paid the bill. OR MAYBE YOUR EYES WERE BAD. n And you had a headache from eye / strain, or you could not see clearly enough to read. You went to the eye specialist and he fitted you with glasses and you were 0. K. again. And Dad paid the bill.    [    ^    j OR PERHAPS YOU HAD AN ATTACK OF APPENDICITIS! And did Dad get excited and phone the Doc! Or maybe bad tonsils or adenoids, or some other ailment. Did you suffer! Sure! But only until arrangements could be made for meaical treatment or for an operation to set you on your feet again. And Dad paid the bill. RUT SUPPOSE—you had been a POOR kid. And had some of these ailments and your Dad was poor— and out of a job or incompetent and on relief. Or, suppose you had NO DAD. THEN WHAT? Well—you would have suffered and suffered endlessly. If your case was HAD ENOUGH the county probably would have helped. Soon enough? Perhaps not. There is a limit to what the county can do. And you might have been hindered throughout your life because of infirmities due to bad eyes, tonsils, teeth, or what not. Instead of being on asset to the community, you might have been a liability. WHAT CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMMUNITY SALE TO HELP THIS WORTHY CAUSE? Practically every person has something he can contribute, If it is not some material, then it may be some service.
