Paw Paw Children
Operated on Here
Tonsils were removed from 26
scbool children of Paw Paw,
Mich., at the University hospital
yesterday afternoon after a bus
ride of 150 miles in the school
bus carrier. Three others had
minor operations, all at the ex-
pense of Van Buren county and
as a result of a recent health re-
search by Mrs. John A. Brennan,
Paw Paw school nurse. It all
happened this way.
Mrs. Brennan wondered why
so many absences were recorded
in the schools at Paw Paw this
winter and examined every child.
She foupd that of the 622 en-
rolled, 116 were in dire need of
tonsil operations and more than
half this number would never
be able to afford them. So she
interviewed county officials and,
with the help of Oren W. Kaye,
superintendent of schools, se-
cured permission to send more
than 50 to Ann Arbor at the
county's expense. Friday after-
noon 29 of the poorer children
made the trip and yesterday had
their tonsils taken out.
They will return to Paw Paw
tomorrow morning, while an-
other bus-load will make the
journey in two weeks.l

Services Will Conclude Week
of Intense Religious
Music, Plays, Illustrated Talks,
to Mark Culmination of

Ann Arbor's churches will join in
the annual Faster ceermonies this
morning, to conclude a week of in-
tense religious activity and daily
services throughout the city.
Special Easter musical services
have been arranged by many of
the churches. At the First Congre-
gational church Palmer Christian,
University organist, will play, and
Rev. Allison Ray Heaps will speak
on "Let Not Your Heart be Trou-
bled," to conclude a series of Lenten
period sermons which he has been
delivering. At the evening service,
he will give an illustrated lecture,
on "The King of Kings."
