FREEDOM — A Principle of, Chiropractic Practice The philosophy of Chiropractic might be given one word— freedom! The freedom of the parts of a thing determines the freedom of the whole. The freedom of the whole determines purpose of the whole. The freedom of the parts determines the functions of those parts. To understand precisely the freedom which should exist between parts of the human body, a careful study of anatomy is necessary. The essential principle of chiropractic is that there should b« freedom of the regulating and controlling forces of the body, if one would have health. Today, more than ever, the principle of freedom should be applied to the human body as well as the body politic. Dr. W. C. Grainger CHIROPRACTOR 6 North WMbincton Ave. CKy, Christmas Mall Setting New Record 98,400 Cards and Letters Sent in Day Parcels at 19 Per Cent Over Last Year The volume of Christmas mail is setting new records in Iowa this year, reports from throughout the state showed Wednesday.
