Then* the i\ai o\ei, ^\<n pioduction turns to civilian goods again, and the savings funds are paid back to people so they .can buy them. In Canada, too, Graham V.

Pneumonia of different types have been for a long lime leading causes of deatli among children.

Under the best conditions death rales from primary pneumonia in children ed. Unfortunately not all types of pneumonia respond equally favor-, ably to Ihis treatment. . . Many so-called "pneumonia cures" liavc been tried and found wanting until the newer remedies raine Into use. The most recent forward step in treatment came as the result, of experimenting with a new drug called sultapyradine.
