Health Talks By Herman N. BundCHen, MTrT Here is the good news for ' BU n dodRcrs, those men, women n n ,i Children with white sensitive skin' for whom nn hour or so In the su m l mcr sun has always meant a pain ful burn. This year they con ec i their share of summer sports artf health-buildins doses of sunshine without turning lobster-red. It is Rood news, too, for others who, thouRh they may not burn so easily, still must spend Ions hours outside every dny in the.course of their work, Tbc little miracle-worker in this case is called rod veterinary petrolatum because it was once used ex. clusively to treat a condition in horses known as "collar gall." R c . cent tests <&iow that this simple well- known preparation, 'which may be purchased at any '. dm c store, will protect against the dan. ffcr of sunburn even during exposures of two hours or more. Added Advantages It has these added advantages, it docs not rub off easily, is not greasy and even with constant «« e it nas not been found irritating to the .«kin. • In testing this preparation, it Was put on the skin in a thin layer and the skin was then exposed to a flow of ultraviolet rays equal in strength to GO times the most i n . icruc sunlight. One minutes of,exposure was equal to two hours of midsummer sunshine, yet no burns Occurred oven after exposure of the skin for twenty minutes. On skin not covered with the ointment, exposure tc the ultraviok-t rays for ten seconds was sufficient to produce evidences of sunburn. This type of petrolatum with nothing added to it give ample protection from the most intense sunlight. Stimulating Body Sunshine seems to have some effect in stimulating aJl the activities of the body. In addition, when the ultraviolet rays of .this light »fa!l on the bare skin, vitamin D is formed from the substance in the -'kin known as crgostcro]. But healthful a.s it is, sunshine is pow- .erful, primal stuff, and too much of it can be as bad as too little. Those addicted to sunbathing should remember this. They should sJso learn :hc rules . Rence refused to comment on the possibility that 'the governor may run again-—despite his declared in !,ontion of retiring. He did fay however, that "Governor Baldwin's nblo administration and leadership have won for him n:.'ionnj stature. Unquestionably he would mako a good candidate. Among Hartford County leaders present the impression most for- ful and arrogant—he had himself i warded was that former Lieut. Gov- pholographcd with Al Caponc and sent the photo to newspapers! O O Congressmen who say that Bilbo destroy 1 the incriminating records. And despite the fact, that he filched m'illions, 'enough evidence couldn't be found to send him to jail. ' O O Some years ago a Philadelphia Mayor was indicted for failing to suppress gambling and vice. He w»s accused of bcJng on the payroll of undcrworlders. . .Despite the exposure the Mayor's regime continued to remain in power. The whole sordid affair caused one local editorialist to label Philly as the City of Brotherly Loot." All is fair in love, war and poli- •tics.
