flu. The examination revealed a
slight fracture of the skull, and it
was thought there might be a blood
clot on the brain. He reported that
the doctor did not advise any spec

jury was not considered critical.
His friends here hope for his rapid

I have always been a great lover
of newspapers. I like to read "fea
ture articles," especially those that
are devoted to health topics. I no
tice the trend of such articles
they tend more and more toward
the special treatment of diseases.
I read an article last evening
about the treatment of diabetes.
Of course it is good advice and good
reading. But the special treatment
of any disease belongs to the doc
tor. I do not advocate confusing
the family with the scientific names
of drugs, or directions for the ad
ministration of highly - organized
chemicals, the action of which may
not be understood by the reader.
We all condemn the promiscuous
use of "headache tablets," and oth
er counter-prescriptions for self
treatment, because it is a dangerous
practice. I saw a patient yesterday,
very weak, from taking an overdose
of sedative medicine that is con
Sedative medicines quiet all bod
ily functions they do not select
the organs to attack. They often
"quiet" functions that do not need
quieting. A man with a damaged
heart does not need a heavy, sed
ative dose for his headache. A doc
tor should do the selecting of a
medicine for him.
If the doctor's fee is the objection
I'd rather prescribe for my pa
tient for no fee than for him to go
ahead and bring himself into a
worse condition for me to handle.
Sometimes "economy" is not econ
omy in the long run.
In very rare instances I instruct
patients how to give a hypodermic
dose, like Insulin for diabetes; but
I hardly feel like it is doing the
best thing for the patient I'd
rather do it myself even if the pa
tron is unable to pay for the service.

We didn't actually
plan on elephants when
we chose the bodies for the new
Chevrolet. But we did choose bodies
rigid enough, and strong enough, to
support six tons of elephant, or any
thing else you can name. . . . Fisher
bodies . . . steel bodies plus a hard
wood frame . . . exactly the same type
of bodies used on all 12 and 16-cylinder
cars. Steel alone is not enough to
make you as safe and secure as we
want you to be in a Chevrolet. A
steel body, welded into a solid wall
of protection plus resilien t hardwood
reinforcing to take up stress, absorb
shocks and prevent the steel from
following its natural tendency to
buckle under pressure makes the
sturdiest body of all the kind used
on the Chevrolet, and on no other
low-priced car. Remember that
when you buy a car. Be sure to get all
you pay for . . . the super-safety of a
steel-plus-wood Fisher body.
