On Oct. 20, 1924 it opened as the Social Welfare League under which name it operated until November, 1947, when the name was changed to Family Service, Inc. We have two employes and are governed by a board of 15 members. Family Service is a participating agency of Community Chest. Our work touches very • intimately the lives of many individuals. The reward comes from the expressions of the families with whom we have worked. A greeting card recently was received from a family, with the following inscription: "Thanks to you, our home has again become a happy one." There had been many family problems, but, in working with the family, these were eased a great deal. A DISTURBED motb- ,er recently came to u«.

They may need financial aid, which can be given, or just someone to untangle the problems which they face, JN THE WORK of Family Service, financial assistance and service often go hand in hand, each supplementing the other in the plan for the family. Financial assistance is tangible and has a definite place in t h e budget of the organization, while service is not so easily understood and measured. Case work is the greater part of the work of the organization, The following poem describes the aim of Family Service: I have known this of kind- DORIS BRUCE the father's attitude improved, and much anxiety was removed.

She says Amvets were leasing the west part of the ground floor,of the hotel when the accident occurred Dec. 29, 1962.

Mrs. Bull said she was hos- ritalized six days as result of ne fall. She said her hospital sxpenses totalled $217.90 and ier medical expenses were ?331.96.
