Health For All
TB WHY COMPLETE REST?
The ability to test is an art,
and in the rush of modern civil

lost art. Some of us never really

it the hard way when they are I
forced into complete rest to com-

As a matter of fact, complete !
rest is basic to the cure of most
ills of the human body. Medicine,
serums, drugs, diet, all play an
important part in firrhiinj sick
ness and disease, but they would
be far less effective without the
physical rest that is necessary to
the restoration of health.
For example, fundamental in
the treatment for tuberculosis is

The patient's lung has a big
job to do in the constant intake
of oxygen to keep the body sup

tuberculous patient breathes few

when he is moving about, laugh

ting up, and therefore, there is
less strain on the lung. As its
work is cut down, the damaged
lung is given a chance to heal.

1. It doein'f uif happen there's a public
telephone not far away when you look for it.
Locations have been carefully selected to make
sure service is where it's needed most... in
theatres, filling stations, drug stores, terminals.
And special installations are often made to
meet the needs of crowds at conventions,
fairs and the like. Today there are some 85,000
public telephones at work in the West,
3. Good service for you comes from the big
job of handling millions of calls every day.
But the extras mean a lot, too likeputting tele
phone booths in handy places. They add up
to keep your service one of today's best buys.
2. More errands run, more jobs done, more
time saved for you... telephone service has
many duties. And public telephones make
service still more valuable by putting all tele
phones, both residence and business, within
convenient reach... no matter where you may
be. More and more are going in, too. ..as we
keep pushing our job of furnishing good, well
founded telephone service to the West.
