Dr. Eugene Cook is arranging to locate in North Manchester and will open an office Saturday. This decision was made the latter part of the week after the sudden death of Dr. G.D. Balsbaugh, who died Friday from a heart attack. Dr. F.S. Kitson has been ill for several months, and while improving, will not be able to be at his office for some time. There was immediate need of another doctor in North Manchester and Dr. Cook, who had only a few weeks work to finish as intern, decided to located here immediately.

He is a son of Dr. J.C. Cook and wife and graduated from the Central school in 1927. After attending Manchester college for three years, he entered Indiana university school of medicine. He has been intern at the Coleman and Riley hospitals, doing work that would prepare him for general practice. As an intern he has made an enviable record and comes to North Manchester with the good wishes of many North Manchester friends.
