VALUE OF DIFFERENT METHODS IS SHOWN
WILL THEY WIPE US OUT?
Sometimes l wonder, if we don't
wipe out that form of infection known
as "colds," if some day they won't
wipe us out.
Doesn't it seem to you that colds
are a much more serious matter to-
¿lay than they used to be in our youth?
It surely seems to me that the de-
scendants of the cold germs that prey-
ed upon our grandfathers are more
lusty than their ancestors,—or that
we are less so. Or perhaps it's a little
The amout't of school time that
children lose from colds is simply ap-
palling. Of course one may say that
there is much more fuss made about
colds now than there used to be. I
asked a little girl whose mother is
very easy-going, and who seldom
misses school, what her mother did
when she and her brothers and sisters
had colds. "Oh, she just gives us a
handkerchief and sends us to school,"
They Didn't Make Us Sick
That, to be sure, was the old way.
But as I look back I do feel that one
reason it was possible was that the
general ruin of colds were not so bad. >
They did not make us feel alck. tfrey
just made our noses red and our hand-
kerchiefs imperative. They ran thru
a family, to be sure (I can remember
a generation, innocent of knowledge of
germs and their ways, commercing
on how queer it was that when one
person in a family had a cold the rest
were likely to), but they were not so
devastating in their course. At least
1 do not remember In all my child-
hood but one cold that made me feel
really sick, and I know for a fact that
my sister went all through grammar
school without being once absent,
tardy or dismissed.
It would be interesting if it were
possible to reckon the value of the
time lost by colds in business. When
you think of the havoc one single
lusty cold germ can do In Its rounds
of an office or a shop you are simply
appalled. And do you wonder if, In-
convenient as it would be to grant
short absences for minor colds, It
wouldn't be less inconvenient in the
end, than being forced to permit long
absences for the violent colds that
have developed from that minor one.
Part of His Job
Suppose every worker who was
coming down with a cold should be
sent home under pledge to go to bed
until the cold had passed, and visited
by the company doctor to make sure
that pledge was enforced, as part of
the worker's job. Two days at the
start will dispose of the most vicious
cold as effectually as two weeks later.
Ami on the top of that three or four
more workers would be saved from
And then, of course, the public
would be safeguarded. I started to go
to the soda fountain of a drug store
the other day and had climbed on a
stool, whew I suddenly realized that
the drug clerk was sneezing violently
over everything. He had a dubious
looking rag on which he alternately,
wiped his hands and the tumblers, I
slipped off that stool and went else-
They Have Them, Too
Of course there is such a thing as
talking too much about colds. But I
notice that the people who boast about
their own disregard of germs have
just as many colds as the rest of us.
The way to fight ill heatlh is, of
course, with health. We can't alto-
gether run away from germs, though
I think it would be a splendid thing
if we could isolate the sources of in-
fection. as 1 suggested, but we can
try to keep ourselves in such a condi-
tion that the enemy does not, easily
get in an entering wedge.

these four states 74 per cent hod
adopted practices taught by extension
forces. A total of 0,883 adoptions of

average of 3.4 practices for each

Propaganda methods influenced the
adoption of Improved practices on 08
per cent of the farms, object-lesson
methods on ,ri8 per cent, and personal
service methods on 27 per cent.
Forty-nine per cent of the furms re-

The Importance of the indirect

brought out by the fact that exten-
