By Outward Thinking
IT'S normal to be jilted. Ninety
women out of every hundred
have at one time or another, loved
a man who stopped loving them.
It is a common experience that hap-
pens to the best. Even to Cleopatra.
"Recovering from a man isn't
pasy," Dorothy Walworth writes in
the April issue of Good Housekeep-
ing magazine. It takes grit and
self-control, she says. But there's
a technique to it, and if you follow
a sensible program you can get
over a man in three months.
According to Miss Walworth, you
must first of all want to recover.
One reason for suffering is wounded
vanity. Don't feel that there i9
something shameful about losing o
man. You are still attractive and
The other reason for suffering,
the writer points out, is simple j
force of habit, and it's hard to
break a habit however small it may (
be. But by breaking this routine, by ;
turning your mind to something new ;
and experimental you will quickly
forget. If you have a job, bury
yourself in it. If you haven't, try
taking a course in some new field.
"Don't worry if you have re-
lapses," Miss Walworth concludes.
If you are faithful to the technique
they will be few and easv to take.

BUT HE RARELY THINKS OF IT
Doctors are so constantly running risk of infection
and contagion that they rarely give it a thought.
They do the necessary operation, treatment, or
make the necessary visit, regardless of risk. That
is part of their job, and accepted as such.
Every precaution is taken and every aseptic, ster-
ilizing and preventive measure is employed for the
safety of each individual patient, but the Doctor
must, in many cases, take a chance on personal
Friends and loved ones may fear and avoid conta-
