How to Escape FLU 1 Avoid so far as possible the places where flu germs are most likely to be spread; overcrowded cars and public meeting places; overheated, stuffy rooms. Be careful of close contact with others and beware of all coughers and srfeezers; breathe through the nose, get fresh air, but avoid drafts or chilling. Get lots of rest. Eat plenty of citrus fruits. Keep the bowels open. Take extra precaution to keep in good physical condition, so your system will have high resistance against germs. \ Above all, avoid catching colds. They lower your resistance to the flu germ. Ward them off. At the first sign of any cold, take Bayer Aspirin and remain indoors if possible until your cold is gone. If you have a sore throat, dissolve some Bayer Aspirin tablets in water and gargle; this will relieve the soreness and reduce the inflammation. 1931 BIRTH CONTROL HEAD This Is a recent photo of Margaret Sanger, birth control advocate, who has appeared before the senate judiciary committee, In Washington, to outline her plans for spreading birth control information and to plead for the passage of a law making the dispensing of such Information legal.
