Scientists say it's because KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN can really "get at" Ji common cause of constipation -- namely, lack of sufficient "ccllulosic" elements in the diet. KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN is one of Nature's most effective sources of these elements, which help the friendly colonic flora, fluff up and prepare the colonic wastes for easy, natural elimination. KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN is not a purgative! Doesn't work by "sweeping- out." It's a gentle-acting. "regTilaling" food! If vou have constipation of this type, eat KELLOGG'S ALL- BRAN or several ALL-BRAN muffins regularly. Drink plenty of water. See if you don't find laslin.7 relief!

E.. is here on a short Prices Rule Behavior of Men, Women STATE COLLEGE, Pa., (U.R)-- The public's behavior is definitely affected by rising prices, according to Dr. M. E. John, professor of rural sociology at he Pennsylvania State college. In some ways, the chances arc good and in other ways they are bad. Divorces increase \vhen prices rise, he pointed out, while suicides and deaths from alcoholism decline. When the price level rose sharply from 1914 to 1920, the divorce rate increased from 110 to IfiO per 100,000 people. In contrast, divorces declined from 168 to 1211 per 100,000 when prices dropped in 1929. Increased prices from 1932 to 1935 pushed the figures up again from 12!! to 171. 'There arc 2 explanations," Dr. John said. "In depressions, many people who want a divorce can't afford it, and hard times often bring a husband and wife into closer harmony." Deaths from alcoholism declined during the price rise of World war I, from 5.8 per 100,000 persons in 1014 to one per 100,000 in 1920. DoEtths from alcoholism increased grcally during the depression. "Evidently, excessive drinking is not caused by having more money.'' Dr. John explained. "It's more likely that some people rc- orl to excessive use of alcohol as \vuy to 'forget exerylhing." Suicides also declined with the irices of "World war f, he added, iut the low prices of the 1920's vere accompanied by an increase n the number of suicides from 10 o over 12 per 100,000. During the days of the stock market crash and he depression, the suicide rate _urnpcd from H to 17 per 100,000 jopulation.
