Work of Denver TB Hospital Is Related A fight against intolerance through a concrete manifestation of Lincoln's principle of charity to all is demonstrated in the day-by-day work of the National Jewish hospital at Denver, according to Miss Thelma Garb, field secretary who visited Ludington last week in behalf of her Institution. During her visit here Miss Garb conferred with members of the national board of directors and hospital supporters. Local resident on the national board is Miss Sara R. Schoenberger. The National Jewish hospital, she said, is this year celebrating the completion of four decades of non-sectarian service. "Its doors have been open for 40 years to victims of the white plague from every state in the union," she added. "Although almost entirely supported by Jews, it has raised no restrictions as to creeds, the only qualifica- tjons required of an applicant being that he need treatment for tuberculosis and be unable to pay. The motto of the hospital is "None May Enter Who Can Pay—None Can Pay Who Enter."

Indiana Dog Has a Long Memory CORYDON, Ind. —Old Ref's not much dog—in a way. He'd not rate with a judge because he definitely hasn't the blood of the champions. Yet if ever a dog could think or remember a good deed, Old Ref is that dog. The other day Old Ref—he's the pride and joy of the household of Freddie Bickel and family, Corydon—came romping home from the woods with a mouthful of wild animal to deposit at his master's feet— the tiniest baby skunk you ever saw. To say the little skunk was hungry puts it mildly. He was famished. Old Ref knew the symptoms. Filled with the "Boy Scout instinct," Old Ref seemed to sense only one thing. He was always fed well by his master. His master would surely feed his new friend. How would you feel if your dog traipsed home with a mouthful of skunk? Mr. Bickel was dubious. Right there Old Ref furnished .proof that a dog thinks fast. Seeing his master was about to run away, the dog immediately started to romp with the diminutive stranger—to show the trespasser was a friend instead of a foe. Mr. Bickel was converted. So today while Old Ref proudly looks on, scores of people visit the Bickel home to take a peek. And it brings memories, you can bet, to Old Ref. Only two years ago crowds gathered to glimpse Old Ref himself. He was born in the spring of 1937 when a" dog quarantine dogged the.,steps of every straying Corydon cur. The Bickel family gave him a home. No more of a refugee was the little skunk, you see, than Old Ref himself. 2a',i,-29; 92, 27^-28; 90 centralized car- lots. 26'f 1 -26',i>: other prices unchanged.
