Don't Worry ... I'm Insured !BY Will Bernard Suppose a neighbor's child, playing in your back yard, falls from a swing and suffers serious injury. Later, when you are talking with his parents, you may offer a few consoling words: "Don't worry. . .—I'm insured." But are you really? Under the popular Comprehensive Personal Liability policy, you are covered only in case you are legally liable. If this was a pure ac- 5i% INTEREST PER ANNUM On 6 Month Saving Certificate* %\ $10,000 «r Mart. 4%% Interest Paid en Pass-Boole Savings Accounts. Put Your Money "Where Thousands Save Millions." MT.

Vernon, Ifflnol* cident, in no way your fault, you are not legally liable — and the insurance company has no obligation to pay off. True, you may have a "medical payments" clause in your policy which applies even if you are not legally liable, ut the medical payments coverage is usually modest, not much help in case of serious injury. In thise circumstances, you might be tempted to side with the injured victim against your own insurance company — perhaps out of sympathy for the victim, perhaps on the thoery that "the insurance company can afford it." -o- -o- -o- But whatever your, inclination, you have no right to weight the scales against the company, just to help the victim collect. On the contrary, you are obliged by the "Cooperation clause in your policy to give the company all reasonable cooperation in its defense against the claim. This means you must sign papers, make court appearances, and do whatever else is necessary to help the company legitimately make its case. And, of course, you must tell the truth. \ -o- -o- -o- In one case, a man named in a damage, claim told his insurance company* that he was in 1 no way to blame for the accident. But just before the. trial, he suddenly reversed his story, quite obviously to help the victim collect. The court accordingly ruled that the man had violated the cooperation clause, thereby releasing the insurance company from its obligation. "The insured must tell his insurer the complete truth con- concerning the accident," said the court, "and he must stick to this truthful version throughout the proceedings. He must not blow hot and cold to suit his personal convenience." SWISS STEAK 95 with potatoes, vegetables, roll and butter Top quality steak simmered in its own good gravy.

Brandstadt, M.D. Q. Is there "any difference between tranquilizers and nerve pills? How do these drugs affect a person? A. "Nerve pill" is a vague term that may be applied to tranquilizers and antidepressants. The former reduce nervous tension without inducing sleep and the latter tend to elevate the mood of depressed persons. The two types are often used in combinal ion. . Q. If I took a heavy dose of tranquilizer daily for two years, would it cause my stomach to bloat? A. Bloating is not caused by tranquilizers. It is more likely to be caused by the nervous tension for which the tranquilizer is taken since this tension may interfere with the complete digestion of the sugars and starches in your diet. Q. What is Compazine used for? Is it a mixture of different drugs? Would it cause a bed reaction if taken with San- sert for migraine? A. Compazine is a brand of prochlorperazine, a major tranquilizer. It is not a combination of drugs. You can get a bad reaction from taking too large a dose of either of the drugs mentioned , or from their prolonged use, but I know of no reason why they can't be taken together. Q. How' safe is Equanil? Is it habit forming? What side effects does it cause? A. This minor tranquilizer may be habit forming. It is safe when taken under medical supervision. The chief side effect is drowsiness. Q. I am recovering from a nervous breakdown. When I was released 1 from the hospital I was given Prolixin an Akineton. Could these drugs account for my rapid gain in weight? A. Prolixin is a major tranquilizer and Akineton is given to relieve the symptoms of Par* WAYNE CITY The Christmas program was well attended Saturday night at the Olive Branch church.

Your gain in i weight is caused by taking in more calories than you use up as energy. Q. In this day of wide use of stimulants and tranquilizers, are the two ever used in combination? Is mix vomica a stim- ! ulant? I A. Stimulants and tranquili- ' zers are not usually given together. Nux vomica is a dangerous stimulant that has no place in the modern practice of medicine' Q.
