A brief article in a recent issue oi' the Journal of the 'American M.'Jical Association points to some of the accomplishments of medicine during: . 1D30—a year noteworthy, to most of us, merely for the misfortune it inflicted on us. It wasn't all misfortune. A great many lives will hs saved, through many centuries to come, because of things that were 'done in 11)30. To bcifin with, the artificial Innj,', or respirator, was perfected by Drs. Philip Drinker and L. A. Shaw. This has already saved the lives of a number of people whose breathing apparatuses, were paralyzed by infantib paralysis or gas poisoning. Dr. J. Shega of Seoul, Korea, found that .feeding vitamins in sufficient quantity to animals prevented leprosy; and it is hoped that this will point the way to the prevention of leprosy in human beings. Investigator!-: at Columbia University and Johns Hopkins Medical School believe thsylvave found the virus causing the common cold. ]t was discovered that Vitamin D shortens the time that it 1ak;s blood to dot—a matter of vital importance- in surgical operations.

Szymanowski and Hicks of the We-:t:-rn Pennsylvania Hospital Institute of Pathology found that.extremely short'radio waves can be of value in killing the poison of diphtheria. Similarly, Dr. W. T.

Imagine yourself setting out to do the morning's shopping under such conditions.You'd drive down the street, looking in windows for the articles you needed - -the blouses for Johnny, the half-dozen bath towels, the toilet soap, the ginger ale for tomorrow's picnic. You'd stop, ask questions, examine the towels, smel! the soap, wonder if here was your money's worth or if you might find something better farther on. And though you followed this procedure mile after weary mile, you could never be sure. Computed simply in terms of gasoline and tires and shoe-leather, advertising saves you a startling' sum every year. And if you add the value of your time, the amount is vastly increased. When you buy a product that is advertised you know in advance what you will get, how much it costs and where you can obtain it. That is why, in millions of modern homes, the newspaper advertising col- ' umns are a daily guide to purchases. Read the advertisements, decide what you need, then buy with assurance.
