A house is not a home, this is a belief shared by most people in this country today. Neither does a building make a Hospital, this is a fact known by many citizens in Florala, Alabama. This letter is not intended to criticize any particular person, organization, institution, or group of people, how- ever if the shoe fits put it on and wear ~t. On Sunday, the 14th dayofJuly, 1974, my son Jeff received a serious injury to one of his fingers. He was at home at the time of the injury, a call was made to the Florala Memorial Hospital and the injury described. We were told by the Hospital that they had a Doctor on call and to bring Jeff to the Emergency Room. Upon arrival at the Emergency Room, my son was seen by two of the Hospitals employees who were very courteous and in my opinion did what they could. They were in the process of putting a bandaide and a piece of gauze on his finger. I asked had he been seen by a Doctor. I was told they had talked to the Doctor and his instructions were to bandage the finger and have him come in on Monday during office hours. At this point I had become very perturbed to say the least and for the remark I made to the employees - I apologize. We then took my son to the Hospital in Opp, Alabama. Upon arrival there, he was immediately taken into the Emergency Room where a Doctor was on duty. The Doctor found the bone in the finger broken, and the nail torn loose, the finger was x-rayed and sewn up, however the Doctor stated he might have to remove part of the finger, this due to the length of time since the injury had occurred. Ironically the Doctor that treated my son in Opp was not a local Doctor but one from a Military Base. Question? Why was he on duty in Opp and not in Florala? Question? Why was I told that a Doctor was on call at the Florala Hospital and upon my arrival I was told to come back Monday? This is the time that might cost my son his finger. partment eets Another experience, on approximately the 7th day of July, 1973 my father was experiencing an apparent heart attack. The day was a Sunday. I call the Florala Hospital and explained his condition. I was told by the nurse on duty that I would have to locate a Doctor before he could be admitted to the Emergency Room. I attempted to locate a Doctor for 30 minutes. Finally in des- peration I called the Rescue Squad and he was taken to the Hospital in Opp, Alabama where he passed away four days later. Question? Would he have survived had he received immediate medical attention? The Laurel Hill Volunteer Fire Department, meeting in regular session Thursday night, voted approval of an of- fer for Fire Service Training Classes from the State Fire College of Ocala. Warren C. Wolfe, Adminis- trative Assistant, told the Vol- unteer unit in a letter, that the fire college offered train- ing to all members of the fire service, whether paid or volun- teer. The classes are offered both at the fire college and in local departments. As to spe- cific classes, Wolfe said in his letter - "I regret that our catalog for the upcoming year is not available at this time as we are undergoing a change in administration. I will place your name on our mail- ing list to receive a copy of the catalog when it is printed. It will describe the courses ,~we offer, and if you would like to request a specific course for your department, we would be glad to schedule it at the ear- liest date an instructor in your area is available." The letter was in response to an inquiry of Fire State Ser- vice Training available by unit president, James Smith. The volunteer unit, has in the past year, in an effort to up- grade its efficiency, accepted an invitation from the Florala, (Ala.) Fire Department to at- tend ~lasses conducted by an instructor from the University of Alabama and also sponsored a class for the local unit by the same instructor. Also, during the past year, the unit had taken advantage of forest fire fighting techniques offered by the Florida Forest Service, and voted to continue with training in first aid. Smith named assistant Chief R. J. Brown to contact the appro- After my father's death in July 1973, I at a City Council meeting asked the City governing body to look into the possible ways to obtain a full time Doctor for Florala. A Medical Board was created and members appointed. Tothis date as for as I can determine, they have held one meeting, this meeting called by the Mayor. Without a doubt this then was not a solution to the problem. I call upon the governing body of the City of Florala, the Medical Board, the owner, Trustee, or Administrator of the Florala Hospital, any group,• organization or you Mr. and Mrs. private citizen to give this matter your immediate and full time attention until a solution can be found. I call on any citizen having had similar experiences in Florala to write their newspaper, call me, contact your City Councilman and woman and bring this problem to a complete and satisfactory conclusion.

The unit felt that with an extra tank there would be no delay in possible needed service, while recharging the used one. A $50 donation was re- ceived a few months back af- ter answering an out-of-town call. The unit immediately voted to use the fund toward the purchase of the portable unit. Respect your body.

A main ad- vantage is that chairs in pairs help to unify a room, leaving you free to assemble other dis- tinctive pieces you want for con- trast and individuality with the two chairs bringing desired unity. Chairs in pairs help give you two chairs bringing desired unity. Chairs in pairs help give you harmony if other things are moved. This can really give you the best of both decorating worlds. Another advantage of chairs in pairs is that they help you simplify furniture arrangements in a room. By their nature they can suggest a beautiful setting. It's wise decorating to seek out twin chairs. They can be more practical for you, and add new dimen- sions of splendor to your home. And chairs in pairs do not necessarily have to be exactly identical. Manufactures make chairs that go together but are still somewhat different and stand on their own, so to speak. Either way, whether the two chairs are identical, or are just related twins, be sure to look for chairs in pairs when you go furni- ture shopping. ARCHIE McNEILL, Florala's answer to Dennis the Menace, poses with a gigantic Jumbo Squash, weighing 26 pounds. Archie is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold McNeil/- a perfect second for the comic character. The squash was brought in by Mrs. Douglas Worley of Route 2, DeFuniak Springs, Florida. This beautiful specimen, orange in color, very much like the pumpkin, grows on vines about waist high. Mrs.Worley says they are good fried, stewed, or can be used in making pies. NOTE: The News photographer goo~ed when making the picture of Mrs. Worley and the squash. We borrowed Archie as a stand- in. He poses so nicely; we might employ him regularly. Brownies, by far arc America's favorite bar cookie. You can make them from a mix, with a ready-prepared refrigera- tor dough or make them almost as easily from scratch.
