You see, we had coffee just a short time before they left. We all drank some--except Avis. Art dranK two cups. He was perfectly sober when he said' good night to me. # * * "Something could have gone wrong with his car, you know, Jeff said belligerently. Surely tonight would be worse. Wrecked ears and bloody bodies were already spinning -like pinwheels before my eyes. There was nothing to drink in' the bar, 1 knew. I had already looked there for something for Jimmy. In desperation I went down to the kitchen and rummaged until I found a half filled bottle of Bourbon. I had never been actually drunk in my life. I had never been under the table. But I wanted to be that night. I wanted to be so far under that I d never remember a thing that had happened. I poured a water glass nearly full of the ancient betrayer of the virtue of women and the ambition of men. And drank it straight. It put me to sleep all right.

Lady's Arm Was Bent Up Double Like a Jack-Knife One lady recently stated that her arm used to become doubled up like a jack-knife. She couldn't move her arm up or down because her muscles were stiff with rheumatic pains and the joints of her elbow and shoulder were swollen. She said she was ashamed to leave her house because people would stare at her. Finally she got TRU- AID and says she now can raise her arm above her head and the swelling left her elbow and shoulder. The awful pain and stiffness is gone. She is enjoying life once more and feels like "some other woman" since taking this New Compound.
