As Navy Recruiter
Arthur DeMott, aviation ele
tronics chief, has assumed the
position of Navy recruiter in
Rosehurg. He comes here from
San Diego, where he also was in
the recruiting service.
DeMott succeeds William For

lier based sea duty recenly.
With DeMott's assignment
here, came the announcement
that the Navy recruiter is auth
orized to spend up to 75 per cent
of hi time In recruiting men for

Advantage of belonging to the
Naval Reserve, he pointed out,
Is that it gives anyone who is
Navy-mindrd a chance to start
his retirement program, should
he Intend to Join the regular navy
Naval reservists are also given
regular advancement In rating!
and a priority on enlistments
when openings In the regular
navy occur, DeMott said.
DeMott is maklnr; his home

his wife and two-month-old

Have You Rheumatism or Neuritis?
About eight years ago I was living In San Diego. At that
time I was 78 years old and in a critical condition. My legs were
badly swollen, ankles had sores on them and between my toes
on both feet was raw sores. I ti led many remedies and Doctors
and got no relief. I finally heard of a Doctor In the Medical
Building who said that he had been with the Mayo Bros, for
six years. He told me right away that my trouble was poor or
no circulation In my feet, and also told me that he could help
1 was put to bed for three weeks with my head six Inches
below my fret. At the end of the time my sores were all healed
and I was very grateful.
. He then told me that 1 would have to sleep the rest of my
days, with my head below my feet. I did this for more than a
year, it was a misery hut It kept me out of trouble.
One evening after I was undressed 1 got to looking at my
feet, all red and slightly swollen. The Idea came to me, "why
not stick your feel straight up and massage them." I laid bark
on the bed, stuck both feet straight up and commencing at the
toes I used both hands, putting on pressure downwards clear to
my body for about ten minutes. My feet and legs had become
perfectly white, showing that all of the blood had been worked
out of them, and hen blood fame back It no doubt was the
same kind of blood as surged In the rest of the body.
I have followed this method for about three years every
night and while my feet still get red and slightly swollen 1 have
had no sores on them. Before I had this treatment I had on
both feet soft and hard corns. They are all gone. There Is no
doubt about stale and poisonous blood settled In the feet, poor
circulation or non causing. Such misery as Rheumatism. Neu
ritis, Arthritis. Varicose Veins and hardening of the Arteries
and In many cases Gangieen and perhaps amputation of the
I told a friend who had a bad case of Diabetes and he got
relief right away.
This Idea Is no cure but if ou follow it faithfully. It will
keep you out of trouble.
There is another cause of Rheumatic pains which al.:o
comes from the feet. It is the falling of the metatarsal arch.
Poor circulation may be the cause of this.

said, ' that the fundamental prin
ciples of the Townsend plan are
The principles, he said, are to
have a "flat sum of $75 to $150
a month paid as a matter of
right, and not charity, to every
unemployed person at age 65 in
the case of men and at age 60
to 62 in the case of women."
Such a plan, he said, involving
expenditures of $7,000,000,000 to
$8,000,000,000 a year, "could only
be financed by a widely spread
tax extracted from the wealth of
"Labor's push for pensions,
with various unions competing
for the best type of pension, in
evitably will drive the govern
ment to some plan such as this,"
The house-passed social -ecur-lty
bill would broaden the cove--age
and increase benefits of the
present old age and survivors in
surance. Financed, as the present sys
tem, by payroll taxes, the tax on
employer and employee would b
increased from the present 1
per cent each to 1 1-2 per cent
in 1950, 2 per cent In 1951, 2 1-2 in
1952, 3 in 19.56. and 3 1 4 in 1970.
Downey said this still would
require needy retired persons to
depend upon state old age pen
sion systems for additional funds
to meet necessary living expenses.
