Counting one additional month, 117 patients, brings the above total to 1,335. And the above only i shows 20 different cities, but the institution has received patients from 75 different towns and cities and-12 states. Almost all these patients brought relatives, many of'.whom stayed in the city during the entire time of the patient's fay, : "In discussing the value of the Hospital to Miami from both financial and humanitarian standpoints, G. M. London, superintendent, said: "Friends of patients who come to the hospital from out of the city take lodging in the city. They stop at hotels and rooming houses. They get their meals at hotels and restaurants—they buy gasoline at filling stations—have work done on their cars at garuges—spend money at our stores. Most of the out- of-town patients whose relatives • come with them, 4 the relatives will spend as much money in the city «S the patient does in the hospital. It has bean estimated that the doc| ! tors receive for their services three times the amount of money paid to the Hospital, which is very reasonable surgeons' fees. So the total amount spent last year by patients •who como to the hospital with their friends was estimated at more than |20Q,000. f Training School ''The hospital .maintains a nurses' training school where young |; women can take a three-year course in preparing themselves for nurses. At this lime it hns 18 student nurses and two graduate nurses.' A girl who comes here for I' training has practical work along with the theoretical work. She completes about 20 different topics of Study, which are technical books. 'JThis preparation for the young woman prepares her for life's problems and duties. "The training school is run at a .„„„ to the hospital of from $150 to $200 per month. That is, it could take graduate nurses and maids ' und run the hospital and save $160 , to (SQO^per month. But being' a ' Christian institution whoso sole purpose is to serve the community •nd to make a good place for tho doctors to take care of their l'«- tients, it is tho purpose to try to serve the community, not only to |'< tftke care of the charity patients, but to give the community good nurses, who can help preserve life " extend life, nmko people com- i and euro tho sick.

He is a member of th Century Baptist church, in the min ing field near here, but owing I limited seating capacity of hi home church, friends have decide to have the ordination ceremonie held in the new Baptist church a Picher, two miles away. For the last three years, Jnc has been growing in popularity a a speaker and youthful minister until today it is impossible for bin to accept all the invitations tha come to him for sermons in differ ent churches and addresses befor civic organizations. The ordinatio services are expected to be large ly attended and already those in charge of the services fear tha there will be no auditorium larg enough to accommodate those wh< wish to be present. Home Is Miner's Cabin His home is that of a miner's cabin in the center of the grea lead and zinc mining district. His environments are that of other boys, being reared in the mining field. He plays with boys of his age and is a leader irt Boy Scou work, and goes annually with the scouts on their camping tours While he has a child's mind in al of his .games, he has a remarkably well-developed mind in his conversation with .older people, and has a rare virtue of adapting himseli to any situation. His messages from the pulpit are those of a matured mind and seasoned speaker. Jack Arthur Yancey was born Aug. 23, 1914, at Webb City, Mo. and is the son of Mr. and Mrs, John Yancey. At the age of 3, his parents and the family moved to Hannah, Okla., where Jack experienced the sadness of the death of his mother at the age il)(i have sent out a good many graduate uurses, but still wo sufficient number of nurs- tO fill the demand, because this v?|pt«r all tho available nurses 9 called and the demand was supplied, Many of these nurses j pare of the patients for the itors in the hospital, but the hoa- t»j does Dot profit by the wages d by tho nurses and tho nurses called on duty in the jl are not here (o help the itali but to help the patient 'Out tho doctor's orders.

He lived here until he was 10 years old, when the family, with the step-mother in charge, moved to the Picher mining field. He has .three sisters — Helen, Eva and Juanita, and a brother, Frank, all younger than he. Felt Call to Preach at 9 Jack became impressed to preach at the age of 9. And in endeavoring to answer the call while under the guidance of his step-mother he would always take his Bible in running errands and doing the usual chores about home. He has the habit of memorizing Scriptures, a virtue he finds very helpful since he has entered the field of the ministry. When he was 11 years old, he made the decision for Christ and from this turning point in his life events have shaped rapidly toward the ministry. During the same year; his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. W. Douglas, became his custodian, and encouraged their rarely gifted grandson in the work he felt so near his heart. Joined Church at 12 At the age of 12, he united with the Missionary Baptist church at Douthat, and was baptized by the Rev. £lme r Reynolds at Picher. Immediately following his baptism he spoke over the radio from station KGGF at Picher, and since that timp ho has answered a multitude of calls to speak and fill pulpits in various churches. He made many public appearances before civic organizations and churches and became an attractive speaker and entertainer, making it difficult always for room found for those 'who sought to hear "Picher's Boy Orator," a title he has rightfully earned. lie js known in the Baptist denomination as the youngest preacher in the South. He has preached from p.ilpits in various towns and cities in Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas. In the summer of 1929, he conducted his first evangelistic campaign. Hannah, in Mclntosh county, the place where he was reared and his mother burled, was the first place to visit. He prench- od one week and had 25 additions to the Baptist church.

In this effort of ojio week, there were 30 conversions, Ho was next culled to Hominy, 80 miles from Fairfax, in the oil fields^ In this week's revival, there were 30 additions, From Hominy, he went to Strong in Mayes county, where he conducted n weok's meeting at tho Baptist (iluirch, resulting in 25 ndditi-ms In those rc'vival campaigns and other special services, thore have been 270 conversions and additions to tho churches, Jack is n sophomore in Picher high school., and ranks as an "honor student", having an aver- ago grade in all subjects of above 90. Ho has been a member of the debating team for two years. Ho is chapluin of the Hi-Y, a Christian organization fostewl by the high schools of Oklahoma. He has attained awards in standard oration JACK YANCEY and history, the latter being his favorite subject. At the- state eon- test at Stillwater, he tied fot second place in history. Memory Amazes Listeners He is endowed with a good memory. It is said of him that retains about all he reads when he concentrates his mind. This faculty has amazed his auditors., He can read over a sermon and then reproduce it with amazing accuracy. ^ He is an orator and possesses unmistakable traces of genuine eloquence in his delivery. He has unusual ability to approach strangers, who soon become his friends. After finishing high school, he plans to attend a Baptist college ;o make definite preparations lor ;he ministry. He purposes to at;end his church services at Wyan- .lottc, where Ije will preach once :'ach month, and use the unoccupied Sundays in visiting churches in nearby towns.

Curing the coming summer vaca- ion, he will launch cut on a wider evangelistic tour in the West. He, vill accompany his grandmother ;p Colorado for a visit with rela- ;ives while Jack pursues his work is an evangelist. Looks Forward to Ministry Concerning the ordination and •he work he has chosen for life, le said: "I look forward to my ordination as the most important milestone in ny life. I feel that I need this ervice, before I have the full com nission to preach the gospel in he most satisfactory way. Mj vhole desire S s to give myself to he salvation' and help of others ncl bring such blessings to human- ty as the Lord wills." its discretion, refuse to grant a divorce* and in any such case may make an order for the custody, maintenance and education of tht children, ami for the control ami equitable division of the prdperty of the parties or either of them as; i way be proper, even though no di- .oice be granted.
