Mr. Biggs had been a farmer in this community until about seven years ago, during the war, he and his family went west each spring and worked in the fruit and vegetable fields out there, coming back each fall to spend the winter.
About three years ago, he and his sons went west, but shortly after he got to Idaho, he began having trouble with his throat and his voice became weak and raspy. He went to the doctors out there with little encouragement and finally came back home. As his condition seemed to be getting worse, he gained admittance to the Ellis-Fischer Hospital in Columbia, Missouri, and has been a patient there since that time.
