It is a specific manual method applying mechanical and engineering-principles to correct the specific mechanical derangements found in each patient. After a careful chiropractic analysis, the chiropractor arrives at his conclusion of how to solve the mechanical problem in the case. Frequently two patients with similar ailments may present different mechanical problems and there- for receive different methods of adjustment. Dr. W. C. Grainger CHIROPRACTOR • North Washington Aye.

With Herb Ohrt as round-up chairman, this program promoted a series of activities up to Dec. 8 when the leaders appreciation dinner was held. A crowd of more than 400 attended to witness the burning of the mortgages. Throughout the year, Dr. R. H. Koenig of Charles City and his organization and extension committee promoted a growth program and made visits to every district in connection with it. They were aided by a commissioner staff under the direction of Ray Rorick of Mason City and the advancement committee headed by the Rev. H. P. Rumford of Mason City. A new advancement procedure was instituted this year to aid the program in many ways. Executive Added With finance officers H. D. Makeever, M. C. Lawson and A. J.
