Trains For Ladies Proposes All-Out Attack On High Blood Pressure .NEW YORK (UP) -^A head-on scientific attack on all the medi- cai problems of high blood pressure has been proposed by a noted blood pressure expert, on the grounds that if those problems were solved, scores of lives would be saved every year. them. The lives of many of these persons could be prolonged, he said.

These people have been putting a little money into the Club every week since then. First Federal will soon pay out many thousands of dollars to its Christmas Club members for Christmas fun and frolic. First Federal says the greatest Joy it has all year is writing these Christmas Club checks. And these savings draw dividends, and thus add.to your. Christmas money next year. And even your Christmas Club money at First Federal is insured by an agency of the U. S. Government.

Blocks Nerve Centers Right now medical science throughout the world is employing an effective blood pressure reducing weapon jn the form of chemicals which "blocks nerve centers of the sympathetic nervous system. But this weapon is j employed only in persons whose i blood pressure is extremely ex- ' cessive- or has been excessive lor so long, that life-shortening damage has been done. In these severely ill persons, many of whom have reached the "malignant" high blood pressure stage and so are at death's door, these chemical weapons have produced worfders in lowering pressures, keeping them down, and so prolonging life. Dr. Stewart said they. -had been. proven "potent, practical, .and reasonably predictable." Then why not use them in all persons with only moderately elevated blood pressure— since life insurance statistics show that "any sustained rise of arterial pressure occurring short of old age, particularly in men, presents a grave long - term threat." There are two main reasons why not, he said. One ' is a lack of I knowledge of how the agents' work in healthy bodies against' blood pressure that is high but not very high. New Control Studies This is knowledge which medical science needs, and which it can obtain only in massive "controlled" studies everywhere of the at this point Dr. Stewart encountered his . major difficulty, and that big difficulty is people generally. Mention blood pressure (if you are a doctor) to the average person and the mere mention of the subject increases his blbod pressure. If you're going -to have a "controlled" study of the chemical weapons in persons whose blood pressures are not elevated by very much, you'll have to have 'their cooperation because you'd have to measure their pressures repeatedly for a few weeks.. And so. you'd have to tell these persons their blood pressures. Dr. Stewart said he was against telling patients their blood pressures as of now, but if the blood pressure problems were ' solved-, "The whole climate of professional and private opinion" might change and then it -would be possible to tell the patient about his high blood pressure "without inevitably releasing a flood of anxiety symptoms." A British specialist, he made his proposal in a London lecture.
