The annual children's clinic at St. Ann hospital, Wednesday, Aug. 17, Was a huge success, according to; Dr. Charles Patton, director of the one-day event. A total of 62 childran were registered, and each 1 got a thorough going over by the six doctors dnd six specialists from the University of Iowa who conducted the clinic. Parents from Hancock, Humboldt. Emmet, Pocahontas, Palo Alto, Winnebago, Wright and kos- suth counties brought children to the hospital on family doctor'.orders. Although called the crippled children's clinic it was pointed out by the staff the title is misleading, as a very small percentage of the children registered tire crippled. A child does not have to be crippled to attend, because any boy or girl referred to the clinic by their family doctor may take advantage of the oxamina"- tions offered. Two orthopedists, Dr. Barn»:tt and Dr. Allway, two pediatricians, Dr. Read and Dr. Patton, two dentists, Dr. Miller and Dr. DeGooyer,' and Miss Estel, John Taylor, Mary Herke, Carl Betts, Bernadeen Laures and Muriel Lehman all specialists in various fields, were included on the staff, and performed their duties in temporary offices on first floor and in the basement of St. Ann.
