In mild cases the frozen area returns to normal, but in severe cases permanent injury and the possibility of gangrene may result. Warmth is the recommended treatment for application of warmth.

The frostbite victim should be brought into a warm room, given a warm drink and wrapped in warm blankets or placed in a tub of warm, but not water. Too much heat should be avoided. Nor should the frozen area be rubbed or massaged. As the tissues warm and regain flexibility the person should be encouraged to exercise the frozen portion of his body. And, unless the frostbite is mild, always wise to consult a physician.

Warm clothing is still the best preventive against frostbite. Persons who have lived through a few Wisconsin winters as likely to expose themselves to it as are people from other areas. And many of the fabrics and styles that have been developed in recent years add to our ease in protecting ourselves against freezing. Still we must remember that the danger will be with us whenever we have frigid weather. WE PAY 4 PERCENT INTEREST PER ANNUM, PAYABLE EVERY 90 DAYS ON BANK CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT.
