Dr. McMurdo of Heppner has con
sented to come to Boardman on Fri
day of this week to perform tonsil
operations for the children of Board
man, many of whom are in sore need
of having it done. We are so stiuat
ed, away from a doctor, that we have
tendency to neglect such needed at
tentions. Dr. McMurdo will make a
special rate which all will be able to
meet and it is planned to use the
school house for a temporary hospi
tal. The physician who made the phy
sical examination of the children last
year found 40 children with bad ton
sils, a deplorable condition. Parents
of the children were interviewed and
with only a few exceptions were will
ing to have their children cared for
either here or elsewhere. Tonsil
ectomy is not a fad many children
go through life seriously handicapped
from diseased tonsils. If a child's
tonsils are all right it would be folly
to have them removed, but if they
are enlarged or diseased or if on ex
maination the doctor thinks they
should be removed the opportunity
will be presented to have it done at
this time at a reasonable price.
