Common Sense Still Best
Defense Against the
As the nation settles down this
week to its annual mid-winter
bout with the common cold, many
a chronic victim is wondering
what, if anything, has been ac
complished in the field ot medical
research that promises relief from
the discomfort and expense that
follow in the wake of the cold
For those In search of a sure
cure for colds, the news is bad.
So far, no one has come up with
a universally effective cure for
the common cold. Nor has any
one brought forth a fool-proof
method of prevention. On the
other hand, there have been sev
eral promising developments.
The most promising of these
was the discovery that anti-his-taminic
drugs, which have been
used successfully against hay fe
ver and other diseases of allergic
origin, could also be employed
with some success to combat cold
symptoms. Preliminary studies
indicate they are reasonably ef
fective if taken according to di
rections at the first sign of a cold.
So far, the country's leading
medical spokesmen have declined
to give the anti-histamines their
unqualified endorsement. They
know the drugs cause certain
"side-effects," such as drowsiness
and disturbances in appetite,
among allergy victims who take
them on prescription.
Much smaller doses are r:om
mended by the manufacturers of
anti-histamlnes now on sale in
drug stores, but doctors realize a
large proportion of the users will
tend to overdose in an effort to
break up their colds quickly and,
as a result, may be subject to
Aside from taking part in the
present mass testing of these new
drugs, the best thing the chronic
victim can do to avoid the misery
of a cold is to try to avoid the
cold germ in the first place. That
is much easier said than done, but
there are several common-sense
rules that may help. Those which
have won general acceptance
among medical authorities are:
1. Stay away from people who
already have colds, particu
larly if they are coughing or
2. Keep bodily resistance high
by eating proper foods and
getting plenty of fresh air,
exercise and sleep.
3. Avoid chilling by keeping
out of drafts and dressing ac
cording to the weather
wearing warm clothes in
cold weather and rubbers or
overshoes when it rains or
For those who catch cold In
spite of these precautions, the ad
vice is equally simple. Stay in
bed until the worst of the cold
is over. Eat light meals, and drink
plenty of liquids. If fever, pain
or a rattling cough lasts more
than 24 hours, call the doctor.

program, said Miss Taskerud.
Training for good citizenship is
the most important part of the
club program. Developing good
working and thinking habits are
as Important as learning the skill

better place is there for boys and
girls to see democratic proceed-
ures at work than In our club
business meetings where leader,
parents and agents ask for the
floor Just as a member would be
expected to do? continued Miss
Taskerud. We can help develop
good future leadership, says she.
4-H club work is home center
ed and therefore parents must
understand the goals and meth
ods used in 4H club program.
Boys and girls do much of the
project requirements at home and
in order to do the best job, par
ents are encouraged to take an
active interest in the youngsters'

different projects were also dis
