X-ray clinic planned
The Columbia County Health Department will have a chest X-ray clinic on March 7, 1958, for people who have or have had home, familiar or employment contact with a case of tuberculosis; those having malaise suspicious or indicative of tuberculosis; and those being advised to have an X-ray examination by their family physician.
Horace Fitzgerald, 19, narrowly escaped death when he purposely swerved the motorcycle on which he was riding to avoid hitting the stalled motorcycle of a friend.
The crash helmet he was wearing and quick rendering of first aid by a fellow racer, Vick Crenshaw, were credited with saving the boy's life. Minor head injuries and the loss of two teeth were the extent of Fitzgerald's injuries.
