PARKS D R , P A R K S H E A L T H N E W S SCIENCE AT WORK Mr.--S, is a business man who has recently recovered from a severe nervous ailment. "Aside from the almost miraculous recovery of my health, the thing that most impressed me about your work was the completely scientific approach to my health problem," he recently informed me. "Dr. Parks, at a large clinic where 1 was treated without success, the specialists asked me how and where I hurt, and my opinion about my condition. As to the treatment, it was all trial and error. "We'll try this or that and see how it works,' 1 was told." "I have been taught that science is exact, and that has most impressed me about the Science ol Chiropractic." Analysis It is true that science is exact. Two and two are always four. When the true cause of illness is located and corrected the results or symptoms always disappear, provided the tissue is not destroyed. The Science of Chiropractic has reached a level of scientific exactness not approached by any other health profession. The reason for obtaining a case history of each patient is to better help the patient understand his condition and thus cooperate belter. Each step of the Chiropractic analysis through the precision adjustment is governed by scientific knowledge. It is this scientific basis whch enables we Chiropractors to restore health to so many patients in such a short length of time--some of whom had been led to believe themselves incurable PARKS CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC 127 SOUTH HARVEY PHONE ED M8M, Res.

Her father, A. K. Eckles, was the first superintendent of the agricultural high school. Mrs. Erskine and her two sisters were born on the campus and attended Delta State. One of the sisters, Mrs. Herbert Eustis, Jr., (nee Nell Eckles) is now a resident of Greenville. Mrs. Erskine said in the beginning the first floor of Hill was used as a classroom while the second floor was the girl's dormitory. During the days of ihe high school, electricity didn't come on until 6 p. m. and went off at midnight. Therefore, students had to do numerous chores using electricity in those limited hours. On Saturdays, the students usually ' went home by way of Pea Vine, a 'ocal train. They had to get up at daybreak and go to the train station by vay of horse drawn wagon. Looked For Weevils She said the most exciting thing that ever happened in those [lays was the discovery of boll weevils and students spent many hours in the adjoining cotton patches looking for the insects. When the agricultural high school was closed in 1922, Hill served as the temporary Bolivar County Court House while the new facilities were being built in Cleveland. Mrs. Erskine's father, who was ; Bolivar County Superintendent · oi Education for 16 years, helpec [to persuade the state legislature to establish a college on the site. ,'The three original buildings were j donated for a college by the cit! izens of Bolivar County. The Delta State Teachers College ·was opened in 1925 and Hill was once again the cente- of activity Through the years, it has servec education in many ways and thousands of students have passed through its doors seeking and gaining knowledge. * * * SURE way to check for t h t test available job for you is reading Delta Democrat-Times "help wanted" nds daily. mmtm Kpv : ^S JKii-yP® - ; ^;; : -:v-,;--3!BBgBv»t S»l i, _ . ~^^^^s^^m^ kdifeijiw ,. ,«. _^. . .-- --"^**-~-^**^^iZ TO MARK 50th ANNIVERSARY - Dr. T.
