You may be forced to give up that miracle diet even if it means you won't be able to squeeze into your winter clothes. And if you're in love, just develop a romantic handshake and give up kissing for "the duration." This is the price you'll have to pay if you follow advice the Public Health Service is about to distribute on how to fight influenza. The easy-to-follow set of rules has been prepared to help reduce the number of victims if Asiatic Flu strikes this country in epidemic proportions and NEA is able to present an exclusive preview. They add up to the fact that aloof manners are one of the best defenses you'll have If you can't get a shot of the new flu-fighting vaccine. Get Away from Crowds If flu should break out In your town, get away from crowds. Breaking that date for the big dance may be what saves you from .waking up with a cough, muscle aches, chills, fever ranging from 102-4 degrees, headache and sore throat.

PHS doctors advise regular well-balanced meals plus plenty or rest. Romance is taboo. The Asiatic Flu bug flourishes in the nose and mouth. So when your girl friend snuggles up close, play it tough like those hard-to-'get Hollywood movie heroes. But if you become the most antisocial person in town and still catch the flu, here's what to do: Go to bed as soon as symptoms start. Call your doctor. Keep warm and stay away from drafts. If you get out of bed, put on a warm robe and slippers. Eat simple foods that agree with you, Stay in bed until your doctor decides the chances of your catching pneumonia have passed. If you're taking care of someone in your family who has been stricken by Asiatic Flu, follow these simple rules: Keep his dishes away from those used by the rest of the family your doctor gives his okay. These drugs are used to combat other infections that might follow on the heels of Asiatic Flu and have no effect on the virus itself. Doctors believe these additional complications are what killed four Asiatic Flu victims in the United; States. The PHS is bracing itself for more deaths. But medical experts explain ad- 1 ditional fatalities will not mean the relatively mild flu virus is I picking up strength. Especially vulnerable targets in the expected small death rate will be elderly people whose resistance is lowered against respiratory diseases. The PHS doesn't look for the virus to increase its potency. And even if it does, doctors.say there's no reason to believe the present vaccine will lose its expected effectiveness. If an epidemic hits, health officials believe it will strike during the fall or winter months. Already between 20,000 and 25,000 people in the United States have contracted the disease.
