Only the Scandinavian countries, Australia .and New Zealand have, as favorable an expcri- 'ence. > , » These are samplings from the great wealth of facts on longevity and its relations with sex. age, marital status, body build, occupation, family history, and medical record in Length'of Life, by Dr. Louis I. i Dublin, chief of statisticians of the ; Metropolitan Life Insurance Com- i pany, Dr. Alfred J. Lotka, and! Mortimer Spiegelmnn, the MctcO- I polilan's assistant statistician. I In the book, Just published, the ! authors trace and interpret the improvement in health and longevity i from the earliest times to the prcs- i ent, with emphasis on the social nnd scientific influences which have brought about this progress. Longer Life Span Looms The increase in our longevity, tile authors indicate, was made possible not only by the advances in the medical and sanitary sciences but also by the rapid rise in our standard of living. Though not so evident, improved, working conditions, better and more vannd food, anrl plenty of fresh air and sunlight around our homes have (riven extrn years of life to our people. Tiie authors deal witli the problems of forecasting expectation of life. They foresee a further Increase of five years In the avr-raee length of life in America by 1915, but point out that the chances of survivln» beyond the century mark are not expected to be much greater. One hundred years appears to-be about the limit of the natural human life : span. Ths Influence of heredity upon longevity is studied. One Is mentioned of a person six parents and grandparents lived to a total of 593 years, and who was himself more than 80. in their discussion of the Inheritance of longevity the authors conclude that, although a tendency toward long life Is inhcr- - itcd, the Inheritance factor is not as important as advances In medicine and in standards of living. Overweight a Handicap Such factors as the relations of child mortality to age of parents, order of birth, pre-and neonatal influences, and the Rh factors lire scrutinized. In thc discussion of body build a stalisticnl and medical backing Is supplied for the slimming dick so many persons try out periodically. Being greatly overweight, It Is shown, seriously affects the expectation of lile. Being markedly underweight is also a. handicap, but not 40 bad a one. After discussing some of the advances which have brought about the'prcsent long average lifetime In the United States, the authors turn their attention to the economic and social aspects of Increasing longevity. With the population growing older, the pattern of family life If changing. As health measures are Improved, more and more persons enter the years of old age In better physical condition. With continuing gains in medical and social science, the num. ber of normally active years of life v.111 be increased. Instead, therefore, of becoming a burden to the younger working population for' support and medical care, the old may well extend thcfr productivity »ay be- Stand-out advancement* mark thli 193O Sturf.bak.rl Higher compression Champion ant] Crxnmnndcr engines nf increased hotscpowcr • Self-slnlnltz- in£ coil spring front wheel suspension • Wide-rim wheels nnd extrn- low-pressurc lires • Self-adjusting binku • Oversize windows nnd v.-mnsliieW - Glare-proof "blnck HRht" instrument dials • Weor-re- sbLing Slndeluiker crnrisnmnslnp.
