'Mother' Adams Asks
For Invalid Chair
An invalid chair for a mother of five
children, helpless from rheumatism, is
what "Mother" W. R. Adams would
like some one to donate. Or if no one
has an invalid fhair for which they
have no further use "Mother" Adams
hopes some one or some group""of per
sons will give the $25 necessary to
purchase the chair. '
"It is a most deserving case," says
Mrs. Adams, who is "mother" of the
Visiting Nurse association. "If the
woman had a chair which she could
use to get from room to room, she
could direct the children to do the
housework." Of the five children, the
oldest is only 14.

They are enroute to New York, from
where they will drive to Eagle Point,
