No fancy name for it--"Let's don't gild the lily,' said Miss Dorothy Babb, who dreamed it up. Letters from 32 states have come to Miss Babb *nd Denton's Mayor Mark Hannah from the unmarried lassies who want to participate. There are no limits on who can participate--just any woman who'll admit she's an old maid. Age doesn't matter. The men have made big plans for Wednesday. A tea, free movie and stage show, corsages, a baseball game--and gifts are ready for the old maids. "Old maids don't even get birthday gifts; they don't have birthdays," quipped Miss Babbs last year. So last Aug. 15. Denton's mayor" proclaimed Old Maid's Day. It grew this year.

And, the most devastating part of the Summer Is yet to come. During the doldrums of Auniist and September the lieat^ penetrates more intensely--seems to bake one through and It ia »t th*t time that your body is least able to stand the swelter- injr temperature because of the heat punishment taken durinjr the preceding: months-- it has less resistance--less come-back or recuperative powers. Now is the time to prepare your body for the peak heat waves of the near *n- ture. An article in the Caller-Times a Yale University doctor mentioned several ways to "beat the heat." One was to soak yourself for thirty minutes in a cool tub of water. He said that would help to keep you cool for hoars. I think the doctor was "all wet". Welders, refinery worker* snd. others working in "hot spots" know full well that they will have up a *"Ii head of slcam in a few minutes after they start workuvs even though they had slept all night in a tub of water. His "theory" may work out in a few "lounge Hzzard" cases but in the all-round work-a-day life the hasd boiled facts brdusht «ut in the "hot spots" would starf htm maneuvering for an alibi. Then, too. he says you should have a little more Icsr exercise. You welders who stand on your bead a good part of the day in weldinp the "big- inch" lines should stop welding every now and then and run twenty paces and back to force the blood into your lees, which he claims are very fine radiators. thereby getting rid of a lot of heat for yon. He made several other suggestions-- some fairly sensible- -- others just as nonsensical as the ones Riven above. ;In my opinion, the heat was working on him when he wrote the book which contains these suggestions. To beat the heat, naturally, you must hare' your Eland- nlar system, especially the endocrine stands, in good functional order. The chemistry of your body will then be to perfectly balanced that the "hot spots", the hot stuff j office and the like will have little chance of making * "heat casualty" of you. And, to keep ail glands in functional order the nerve pathways to each must be kept clear of impingements or other impairment. The Straight Chiropractor is most adept in keening these pathways clear for he ttses the specific thrust, and the specific thrust only, to clear the subhixations away, thus, most effectively restoring the nerve pathways to full functional power, thereby, making it possible for the glandular system to work »t full capacity and in an exactinjr. functional order throughout the whole system. Having made a special study of the many cases (hat have come to me dtirinxr the past thirty four years for disorders caused by tfie extreme heat of our Jon* summers t was enabled, to prevent many from helnf listed iimonc the "heat casualties." You, too, will appre- eiatp *his service after yon have siven It a (air tri»J. Keep Tour body in functional bttUnf ft by the specific thrust only. It will not only help "heat the heat" and prevent you becoming * "heat casualty" -- it will add year* to your We and much more life and pleasure to your years. Dial 2-3251 JAS. A.
