Martha, as she is best known to all the youngsters in the county as well as the adults, . will definitely be missed.

As one youngster announced, "She knows how without hurting." Clinics were just a small part of the many duties in connection with her work. She has made many night time calls to people needing assistance. The hundreds of people she has assisted during those 31 years would have to be told by those needing her help, certainly not by her. She has given freely of her time and was almost as much in demand as most doctors. Her host of friends throughout the county are sorry to have her retire, but all are wishing her a long and happy pre-scho- ol retirement Mrs. Frances Fitch has been appointed to fill the position of public health nurse for Juab County.
