It was noted that the Charles Town club had a part of the distribution of some 62,000 books which were given to the first grade pupils in the county schools. One of the points brought out at the convention was that more help in health matters are needed in outlying districts. It is hoped that more doctors will become interested in just ing the family doctor to serve these needs instead of going into the specialist fields.

While we cannot control the costs of medical services; and in turn the increased costs sometimes reflected in your premiums, we can offer plans that will help maximize the insurance you get for the cost.
