A Chicago hospital is experimenting
with radio music to be listened to
through earphones (to prevent the
doctor from becoming distracted) by
expectant mothers while under the in
fluence of a local anesthesia admin
istered for a Caesarean operation. The
purpose is to test the effectiveness of
music in distracting the patient and
imparting partial hypnosis.
A new vitamin, the eighth in the
large group of vitamins, has just
been discovered. It is folic acid, tak
ing the name from the Latin word for
leaf because it is found in great abun
dance in leaves.
Vitamin can be found in very in
expensive sources such as canned to
matoes, stored rutabagas, potatoes,
parsnips, squash and sweet potatoes.
It is also exceedingly high in fresh
cooked broccoli, and fx-esh brussels
sprouts. Canned citrus juices are good
suppliers of Vitamin and are cheap
when purchased in large cans.
Pins will never become rusty if kept

The effects of the national and in
ternational situations will be noted the
moment a woman starts looking for
her new winter coat, is the advice of
the clothing specialists of the U. S.
Department of Agriculture. Wool
prices are on the rise. A wool coat
may be made of new wool—reproc
essed wool—or re-used wool. This
year you'll see a new kind of label to
help you. The new Wool Products
Labeling Act, effective since last July,
makes it compulsory that a wool coat
be honestly labeled as to its exact
wool content—the kind of wool used,
and the manufacturer's name. Also
there must be on the label the amount
of any other fiber in the material that
makes up as much as bv/ of the total.
A coat material labeled "all wool"
must be 100'yr new wool.
Reprocessed wool is wool that has
been made up once, never used, then
unraveled and woven again. Re-used
wool has been woven and actually
used, then rewoven. This is some
times called "shoddy" and may give
better service than poor reprocessed
wool. But good reprocessed wool is
better than poor quality new wool.
Rayon linings are taking the place
of silk because of the ban on raw silk
imports. Good quality rayon is highly
satisfactory for its wearing and last
Furs, the favorite coat trim, are on
the taxable luxury list, so conse
quently many of the season's coats
stress simplicity both of style and ma
terial. The smart unfurred box and
princess style coat may be worn for
many seasons without being dated and
are the most popular in the low-price
field of coats. Because of conservation

of materials the coat pui'chased this
year may have to last much longer
than usual, therefore careful buying
is highly stressed.
Even though you are saving all for
defense, don't miss a trick when it
comes to making the most of what
you've got in your wardrobe. White
lingerie pick-ups, collars, cuffs, scarves
or jewelry will do more for that dai'k
left-over dress than can be put into
words. The new ones are large, both
frilly, lacy and tailored, and are as
fetching as fly-paper.
Women in Industry
Here's a new break for the woman
who works. It's a new book that will
tell her, how, why, when and where—
and for what reasons—she can get
help under state and federal law.
Plenty of women workers have state
or federal help coming to them and
never know it.
A sales girl turns an ankle, is laid
up for a week, then works overtime
to make up for lost time—and doesn't
know there are laws that entitle her
to compensation for her injury on her
job and for overtime wages.
"Labor Laws Affecting Women in
the States," is the title of booklets in
series being issued by the Women's
Bureau of the United States Depart
ment of Labor. There's one for each
state. Each one contains about 14
pages of easy reading for the layman.
The reader can go down the pages,
looking for the law covering a par
ticular situation, find out what the
state law provides, and then go on
down a little further to find out how
the federal law supplements the state
There are many cases where state
laws cover all that is needed, but thei'e
are some cases where state law docs
not give relief, but where federal law
will help. This is often true in the
case of the wage-hour law, which car
ries a drastic provision for overtime
payments in the industries and occu
pations which it covers.
Here, in these booklets, in simple
terms, are the things women workers
need to know. Write the Women's
Bureau, U. S. Department of Labor,
Washington, D. C., or this newspaper.
Women who succeed in business are
also smart enough to cultivate pleas
ant dispositions, and do not permit
lethargy in their personality or ap
pearance to get hold on them.
In view of the terrific troubles fac
ing women in the war-torn centers of
the world petty grievances are small
matters and should be overlooked com
To lend a helping hand, to be cheer

"Steven Dohanos, a native of Lo
rain, Ohio, in designing the 1941
Christmas Health Seal, conceived the
lighthouse as the symbol of tubercu
losis work, spreading light, leading
the way to safety," stated Dr. Ken
non Dunham, Cincinnati, president of
the Ohio Public Health Association,
when he disclosed the theme of this
year's seal. "Lighthouses dot the
shores of the United States just as the
tuberculosis associations dot the cities
and towns, warning and guiding the
people against treacherous cm-rents
and the shoals of indifference to a se
rious health problem," continued Dr.
It was soon after he had begun to
show his work and had earned national
recognition that Dohanos, muralist and
illustrator, discovered that he had tu
berculosis. "In studying the 1941
seal," said Dr. Dunham, "one cannot
help feeling that Mr. Dohanos was in
spired by the light of knowledge which
guided him back to health, his work
and a normal, happy life."
Some of the highlights of the art
ist's life were projected by Dr. Dun
ham today. The temptation to risk
regaining his health while keeping up
his work was great, but Dohanos made
his decision and went to Saranac Lake,
N. Y., where he underwent a period of
treatment and complete rest. Less
than three years from that time, Do
hanos was chosen by the Treasury Art
Project in Washington to do paintings
in the Virgin Islands for federal build
ings. Back in the United States since
1937, he has continued his work in the
fine arts field, recently completing two
From mural work to design is quite
a transition for any artist but Mr.
Dohanos brilliantly has portrayed the
lighthouse as representative of tuber
culosis prevention. With breadth and
dignity and artistic excellence he de
picted the winter-swept lighthouse
scene. The light itself, bold in illumi
nation, beams outward into the night,
a certain beacon for those who would
be guided to desired security.
That, in essence, is the message of
the Christmas Seals—tiny beacons
lighting the way for the unceasing
fight on tuberculosis. Take your place
in the convoy for health by purchasing
these seals which will be offered this
year from November 24 to Christmas
