1 A Thursday. March 22. 1943 CASPER TRIBUNE-HERALD t I . ' IrTZ I Sister Kenny ; Awaits Hearing Undecided on Leaving U. S. MINNEAPOLIS, March 22 JP Sister Elizabeth Kenny, Australian nurse who heads the Elizabeth Kenny institute for the treatment of infantile paralysis here, said today her decision whether or not to leave the United States would rest on the results of a proposed congressional investigation. She announced her decision to leave in a statement Tuesday. She said her decision to depart was reached several months ago, based on her inability to obtain needed research facilities at the institute: the fact that she was not permitted to treat victims of spastic paralysis at the institute, and that she had been wrongfully accused of making misstatements with regard to her method of treating infantile paralysis."

Copyright 1945 Thursday, March 22 Haunted Houses: "And when . . . he findeth it other spirits ... and they enter in and dwell there." Luke 11:25 and 26. Read Luke 11:23-26. The psychologist says this in another way but stresses the substance of it. The chambers of our minds must not be left empty. Evil things inside or outside can be kept out j only if something right and good takes their place. An empty nouse shows neglect in a week. A soul empty of any positive force for good can go wrong in a day. One cannot banish evil thoughts "by simply resolving not to think them. They find their way back along every association line and often more persistent than ever. The only deliverance is to keep the mind so busy with good thoughts that there is no room for the wrong. Only right desires enthroned and obeyed can garrison a life assailed by temptation. Whether we deal with ourselves or a world falling apart there is no safety anywhere save in the positive power of an active Christian goodness. A quarter of a cen tury ago a war unfinished by statesmanship left a great nation empty of everything but passion for revenge; then the evil spirits came back and armed themselves and desolated civilization. Jesus warned us. Prayer: So fill our minds, we pray Thee, our Father, with what pleases Thee in deed and desire that no chamber of our souls, left untenanted, will Invite any evil spirit, but instead be kept secure in what they seek and do. In Jesus' name. Amen. Natrona Men in Armed Forces ' 4 , if i - H S3.93 iJ , fJ&y'JW' j7 )Cf r n srioes PHONt" 9-J nositRx PVT. VICTOR W. NICKERSON: Serving with the infantry overseas.
