FEELING PRETTY CHIPPER,
THANK YOU! "By George, old
man, you're looking fine!"
Did you ever notice how you perk
up, no matter how poorly you were
feeling before, when some friend
greets you in that way?
According to Dr. S. R. McKelvey,
secretary of the Colorado state
board of health, the human system
just naturally begins to tone up un
der the stimulus of such greetings.
He declares it's an aid to health
and a help in preventing disease and
to that end he advocates a new
movement a "tell-your-friends-how-well-they-look"
"It's not only bad taste to talk of
your pains and ailments," says Dr.
McKelvey, "but it is a reflection on
your intelligence and knowledge of
health, sanitaiton and good health.
We are not far from the time when
the cause of illness will have to be
accounted for personally.
"In other words, nature is no
longer going to be blamed for sick
ness when it is simply the result of
ignorance, indifference or wrong
ways of living."
Don't you think it worth giving
Dr. McKelvey 's idea a try?
We do! So here goes:
"By George, you're looking fine!"
