Those members of the Chiropractic profession who knew Dr. Boyd, most seriously regret her departure from this mundane sphere of activity, as Dr. Boyd was one of the true progressive members of our profession. She was a woman of exceptional capabilities and was kind and generous to a fault.

The faculty of the Los Angeles College, of which she was a graduate, all feel a personal loss in the death of Dr. Boyd, and the writer indeed feels that a true, loyal friend has passed into the Beyond.

Dear Doctor:- It is with the utmost grief that we must inform you of the untimely departure of our leader and friend, HARRY RABINOVICH, D.C.

Our institution and the Chiropractic profession at large has lost, in him, a true friend and a champion of our cause. His name will be honored wherever Chiropractic exists.

With the help of our friends, to whom we turn in this hour of need, we shall try to carry on the noble work which he has championed these many years.
