Announcement has been made by the Alexander County Medical Society that a free clinic will be operated by physicians of Cairo and Alexander County for children whose parents are unable to pay for medical services. Under the plan, physicians will give their services free and the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs and other civic organizations will cooperate in supporting the clinic and raising the money to defray the expense of operation. For many years the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs have supported health work among the underprivileged children of Cairo and the county. All cases will be checked to determine that parents are unable to pay and that their children would not otherwise receive help.
