Only four diseases took more lives —heart disease, cancer, cerebra-1 hemorrhage, and nephritis. This means that every five minutes of the day or night some one is killed accidently in the United States. This is a frightful toll; if our war casualties amounted to this astounding figure, we wuold soon become greatly alarmed and would do something about it. iHowever we take for granted that vve shall have accidents and do nothing to reduce this terrific figure. Let's make 1942 a better year by conserving lives, limbs, and material so that we shall have all help available for our boys at the front.
