"FAT BODY WORTH MORE THAN
FAT BANK ACCOUNT"
Atlanta, Ca. "The fellow furnish
ed with a fat frame is far more fortu
nate than he with fat bank account!"
Such, in effect, is the declaration of
Dr. George N. Niles, of the Atlanta
School of Medicines
Science, through the writings of
Dr. Niles, comes valiantly to the de-
Lfense of the fat men of America,
.whom everybody loves but at whom
everybody smiles, a little.
Faf, insists Dr. Niles, is exactly as
useful as money in the- bank. It is a
big reserve to draw on in time of
emergency. And, in another way, it
blesses its possessor even more than
money ever can, for it makes him al
ways happy, optimistic, and inclined
to the enjoyment of life.
"As one acquires fat," says Dr.
Niles, "one acquires also a rose-colored
outlook, a sunny geniality, a pa

philosophy of smiles. And, above all,
one's life is far more secure than that
of the thin person.
"For fatr" the.doctor continues, "by
its concentrated fuel power preserves
other tissues from destruction and
is invaluable as a. reserve force in
,a vital emergency."
For instance, in. these days of re
current marine oisasters, think how
many lives would be saved were they
-embodied in abundant fatty tissue!
Dr. Niles points out that the fat man
could float almost indefinitely; that
his abundant padding would keep him
warm, and would supply fuel and
food, until rescue came.
"Remember," the doctor says,
"that ninety per cent of a man's fat"
is consumed as food before death
In conclusion, the doctor recom
mends that people generally could in
crease their fatness and happiness, by
decreasing nervous exercise, and by
taking more sleep.
A world of fat people, in his opin
ion, would be the world of the mil
