U. S. Pal. Oil.) : t, PHYLLIS IATTEU.E , •'NEW YORK UN'S)—ll's'uncom- fortable enough to have a cold, without everybody looking down heir cool, dry noses at you 'and calling it a "common cold!" It doesn't matter to them, how snootily you sniffle, with what grace and dignity you sneeze, how skillfully you mix your menthol with your Chanel. Still they say your cold is common, they look at you \vilh contempt" and fear, and your pride is cut off as sharply as Ihe zephyrs in your .nasal pas;ages. "ll's not that I don't want to kiss vou," say your' alleged loved, ones. "But you understand." • UiHinderstanding and untouchable, 1 was browsing through some iteralure today and came across a few vital facts on the uncommony: common colds. For one thing, if your loved ones don't kiss you while you are ifflicted with a cold they are either overly-cautious or disinterested. Though colds .are highly 'contagious, the chances are 10 to 1 you won't catch the ailment from kiss- A good, firm handshake is just as likely to transmit a cold as a common kiss is—so far as science can see. And anyway, there is no record of one single death from a cold n medical annals. So why so squeamish, Rorrieo? More facts of reassurance to cold-owners have been 1 issued by the Grove Laboratories, Iwhich make 85 out of 100 of the cold.pills which' Americans annually pay well over a billion dollars for. The Grove folks say, for example, that f j'ou have a cold this minute, you are truly in the. sickly swing of things. . This season. Oct. 1 through Nov. 15, is the first of three' "cold waves" that nip the U. S. nose each year. During any of these periods (the other "waves" are Jan. 15 to Feb. 15, and the entire months of JNfarch and April), there are an estimated 15.000.000 persons a day running around catching cold. . . . . "Tin's," say the Grove people, "is why. we call it common." No matter how ' magnificently you blow.your nose, is their theory, what'you are blowing because ot, is common. No one knows yet exactly why you catch a cold, but it probably has to do with virus, sudden weather changes or—according to the Freudian student of the C. C.— an overworked' emotional condition. The latter can be stimulated by anger, frustration, loneliness, guilt—but the .result is 'the same People And Places •"• .. -' 'WideWoiW ShowPraised For Its Scope .

As a consequence, Americans spend five-billion dollars a year in lost wages and medical expenses, which is an average of ?30 a prising how.many.of iis don't know year per stopped-up head. 'Since the average American has three colds a year, (bis divides out to $10 per cold. More people have colds in Chicago than any other city, and you're more likely to catch the virus (or presumably overwork the emotions) in rural areas than in city areas, according to statistics. But everywhere, everyday, people are kachoping! And there's no way at all to avoid being called common ...... Unless, of. course, ' you don't catch a cold at all.
