An opportunity is being provided for parents to have their children im- munized against this disease The need of this may be estimated by the statistics from other cities The Detroit Michigan Department of Health gays that 153,000 children un- der eleven years of ago in Detroit have been immunized against diph- theria. There are about 142.800 still unprotected There have been no cases group, but 1,805 cases, with 222 deaths, among the latter. The Illinois Federation of Wome:s Clubs and the Parent-Teachers Associ-. ation organized a campaign to reach every precinct in 'Chicago, for the purpose of advising parents to take their children to secure treatment. It was estimated that about 500,000 chil- dren were immunized. Children can be protected from diph- theria, by three injections, each a week apart, of a very small amount of medicine in the arm. Beyond an occasional slight soreness or redness in the arm, these injections are harmless and do not make the child sick. A very large number of children have been thus treated by the Los Angeles County Health Department without a single harmful result. This effective remedy will be given FREE OF CHARGE in Avalon in the very fiear future. Later notice will be given. :0" Our "adlet" column helps. Try it. EVENING WHISPERS By Mrs. Martha Littleton I stood upon a lofty hill, Amid a bower of green; The music of the waves beneath Soothed my tired, weary brain. The sun had sunk behind the hills, Somber-hued the azure sky; The birds had long since gone to rest, For night was drawing nigh. My thoughts went traveling heaven- ward, As I gazed out o'er the sea, The zephyrs gently fanned my brow And brought a message back to me. Nature whispered in my ear Enthralls me with a soft caress, Inviting me to linger there Divinely peaceful on her breast Beside the cross I fingered, And lot I hearc[ a silent call; 'Twas a voice within me speaking~ Cod is Love, and Lord of All. Peaceful, kindly, loving thoughts Just seemed to fill the air; E'en the rustle of the leaves Seemed to breathe a little prayer. My handsreached out across the sea, In thoughtful attitude; Silently I breathed a prayer ReverentlyI whispered: "God is Good." Night falls, I linger yet apace, In glorious, blissful mood Upon Mr. Ada's lofty brow, For this is where I stood. BOOSTING By Herbert R. Baker Avalon, Jan. 15, 1930.
