Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 17, 1931, Mason City, Iowa Why You Need Health Examinations The time has come when every man and woman should undergo a regular health examination at least once a year and better twice Such examination If properly done will find most cases of beginning dis ease and will also locate the cause of industrial aches Such exam inations are the cheapest the best and in every way the most satis factory kind of health insurance Men who work are liable to In dustrial aches each according to the type of work that he foes in addition to the general run of dis eases which anybody may get As to disease In 1880 the av erage length of life was about 40 years Now it is 55 or 56 years Fifty years ago yellow fever was an unconquered menace which might sweep as far north as Phila delphia and did take 8000 lives in a single year in New Orleans Sani tary work hag conquered it years ago in New York state for instance typhoid fever killed about 40 persons a year in each Now It kills about two Proper care of water and milk supplies is largely responsible The reduction In the death rate Jn these diseases has left tubercu losis fairly high among causes of death even tho it has gone away down from its place at the head of the list Regular examinations of apparently healthy pxople will move it much farther down I Heart disease now kills more per sona than anything else Periodical examinations if properly conduct ed will find such diseases in time to give proper care and keep a man and happy Cancer holds a place high among the causes of death and after it is once started early discovery offers the only posibility for Its victim to live The diseases and tendencies to wartT them can be discovered by any trained physician who has made a special study of health examina tions The causes of industrial aches are most likely to be found by such physicians as look at the body par ticularly from a mechanical stand point and who remember that doing the same thing over and over with certain bones and groups of muscles is very likely to leave certain kinds of aches in neck shoulders x arms hands back legs or feet These physicians readily under stand how lumbago or sciatica may result from the drop which an en gineer or brakeman may make over and1 over again in coming down hard from a more or less considerable height on one foot and suddenly or gradually twisting the pelvis or up setting the backbone Your own individual life expec tancy can just as well be extended and your present and future years made livable If you keep close tab on your body developments See a doctor every every six while you are about it it Is better to consult the one who will examine not only eyes ears nose throat heart lungs and the digestive and excretory sys tems but also the bony and muscu lar framework of the most wonder ful machine there HUMAN BODY Dr A T Still founder of Osteop athy said that the O ate opathic Phy sician is a Body Mechanic or Hu

today by unbiased intermediaries to persuade Mahatma Gandhi to follow the first contingent of delegates to London for the second round tubJ conference on Indian affairs The prospect of his ultimate de parture became distinctly brighter When it was learned he was willing to withdraw his demand for the ap pointment either of an arbitration board or of a high court judge to investigate alleged breaches in the Delhi pact provided the government designates a single trustworthy civ ilian or government official to hear his complaints This fact has been communicated to Viceroy Willingdon at

each of them for taking photographs while flying over fortified Japanese territory After they pay their fines the American embassy in behalf of Pangborn and Herndon will apply to the Japanese aviation bureau for a permit for them to fly over Japan Without such a permit the aviators would be unable to start their pro jected nonstop flight to the United States for a prize offered by a Japanese newspaper WAR TO ELIMINATE SLUMS SUGGESTED Pace over a number of years the two ex perts plotted the residence of each upon a map of each city Here are some of the conclusions they re ported That specific areas usually fring ing the business sections produce by far the greatest number of de linquents Turns Out Criminals That once a section becomes so characterized it continues to turn out a large number of criminals each year That of 8101 boys before the Chicago court 43 per cent more be came hrecidivists repeaters from the slum areas than from other sec tions indicating the factors that make boys delinquent tend also to perpetuate their delinquency When German and Irish immi grants occupied these sections the rates of delinquency were as high as at present when the Italian Polish and

to steal for them and the widespread knowledge of political corruption and the alliance between crime and politics Colonel Anderson asserted that modern society must see that these opportunities good

25 cents an acre a negligible item I grant to a man with several thousand acres to scatter it over especially if he al ready is up to his neck in debt Northwestern agriculture also most unluckily got
