MAN IS WEAKER SEX, RECORDS AT CLINIC INDICATE Is Less Able to Withstand Disease Than Woman, Figures Show. P.OCHESTER, Minn., LY)--Probably the men will not believe if., but there are facts and statistics at the Mayo clinic at Rochester, proving, wihout a doubt, that man is the weaker sex. Dr. William J. Mayo some years ago learned that under centain circumstances aad pertaining to certain diseases, males were less I'o- | sistant than females. This information inspired a study by Dr. E. V. Allen and associates at the clinic and some 300,000 casss were checked and findings reported. Chief in importance in the findings was that the male is endowed by nature with an inferior physical constitution. Prowess Only Outward. "Now many will take exception to this statement," Dr. Allen said. "They will say that football players, track men, wrestlers and those who excel in feats of strength and endurance .are almost uniformly · · males. But physical prowess is but the outward habiliment of physical superiority. A quality much better reflected is ability to withstand disease.'' In revealing the results of the extensive study of thousands of cases handled at the clinic, Dr. Allen lias showed how much more frequently men are victims of diseases of the digestive tract, the lungs, kidneys and bone, and functional diseases, than are the women. The women may be sick more-often than men, Dr. Allen said, but obviously less so. Women are most commonly affected with nervous disorders and diseases and cases of varicose veins and heart ailments are theirs in largest numbers. Widows Outnumber Widowers. Some of the reasons for the "inferiority" uj. men, it was reported, Don't take calomel! HERE'S NEW HEALTH FOR YOUR LIVER Now banish bad- breath, pimples, constipation; feel 111 la a million!

FIRESIDE FUEL CO. was attributed to their overwork, alcoholism, venery, tobaccoism, industrial hazards and irregular habits of sleeping and eating. In practically every community surveys have shown there are more widowers than widowers, Dr. Allen pointed out. He cited the fact there are six widows of ex-presidents living today and only one ex-president. Dr. Allen also recalled that dur- ing the influenza epidemic several years ago more women than men were affected, yet surveys disclosed that more men than women died from the disease. He pointed out that in a survey of the'federal census figures for 1929 it was revealed that 129 males died to every 100 females among children under the age of one year. This finding was significant, he said, inasmuch as living conditions of boys and girls would be practically Identical in all families during the initial period of their lives. Survey Carried Further. Carrying the survey further, it was found there were 122 male deaths for every 100 female deaths for children five years of age and under, Dr. Allen said. From another angle of the survey it was shown 104 to 106 boys have been born to every 100 girls in the United States, yet there are now more women in the nation than men. All theories advanced for the cause of male inferiority, Dr. Allen said, are inadequate, adding "only these things remain true: There is a sex-linked inferiority of the male, and the price of maleness is weakness. How ironical therefore, the precept of Peter the Apostle, who said: 'Give honor unto thy wife as unto weaker vessel.'" r/J Dress Trousers WHAT VARIETY!
