Miss Hill and Miss Comstock, representatives of the New York Children’s Aid Society, have been here the past week looking after the children placed in homes around here. They have been guests of Dr. and Mrs. C.C. Jones. They have placed three boys in homes near here recently—John White, a boy about 14 years old, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W.A. Conyers; Fred Sollett, about 15 years old, at Mr. Herb Phillips’ home, and George Adamcek, who is about 10 years old, with Mr. and Mrs. L.R. Wiley. These are all splendid homes and the children are fortunate.
