Under Appearance of Wellness
Disease May Be Sowing Its «
Seed, Dr. Lockhead Warns
Grand Forks, N. D„ May 7.—(iP) —
Outlining the differences between
doctors interested in preventing dis
eases and those interested mainly in
curing them. Dr. D. C. Lockhead,
deputy health officer of Rochester,
Minn., tonight urged practicing phy
sicians to call the benefits of adequate
medical care to the attention of the
Prevention of disease, Lockhead
said in an address to the North Da
kota state health officers meeting,
does not mgan that the cost of serv
ice to the patient will be reduced or
that the income of physicians will be
impaired. It does, mean, he said,
that people will get more returns
from their money because they will
have less pain* and misery and less
loss of time from productive work.
The aim of the modem public
health doctor, Lockhead said, is to
get the people to go to their doctors
sooner or earlier than Jhey have been
doing, so that the words “inoperable
and incurable” will not be heard so
Tragedies of Ignorance
‘‘We have seen so many of the
wrecks of humanity strewn along
life’s highway and known them to be
tragedies of ignorance or negleqt that
we believe in going out into the high
ways and by-ways and shouting from
the house-tops ‘Go mi your doctor
and your dentist periodically for a
checking up on your bodily condi
tion.’ ”
Many physicians, however, contend
that this would be advertising and
unethical, Lockhead said and assert
ed their position Is: ‘gere we are.
,lf people want to consult us we are
in our offices at certain hours but it
is not right that we should say 'Come
unto us, we will do you good.’ ”
Meanwhile, the speaker asserted,
’‘poor suffering humanity continues
to suffer or lay foundation for fu
ture suffering until some friend meets
you on the street and, remarking how
poorly you look, suggests that you see
a doctor.”
The speaker asserted that the mod
ern physician, with up-to-date meth
ods and instruments of precision, can
detect the onset of serious rfiiwuM
before it has progressed to the point
where there is tissue change and even
before the individual feels any bad
effects of the oncoming disease
in plenty of time to prevent the dis
ease from developing, or at least hav
ing a serious or fatal result.
Healthy Body Not All
“An ounce of prevention may coat
more than a pound of cure but it la
a much better bargain,” the speaker
said. “The money saved by preven
tive medicine," he asserted, “will not
be saved lh doctor bills but in sick
ness, suffering and heartaches. You
will live longer, happier and more
useful lives, but the doctor is the man
who can do it for you and who must
be paid for it.
“I am quite satisfied that the people
of this country are prepared and will
ing today to pay the doctors of tjila
county more money to keep them well
than they have been paying in the
past for a cure, or an attempted cure,
once a disease has occurred.”
The theory that disease can be
prevented by building up a strong
and healthy body is only partly true,
Lockhead said. Dividing in
to two general classes, he said those
originating within the body may be
lessened or delayed by building up
strong bodily resistance but that
those originating outside the body
cannot be controlled in the same way.
Watchfulness Can Curb Cancer
For some diseases, he said, specific
cures are available, but the causes of
others are obscure and the medical
profession still has to rely on general
measures such as quarantine, isola
tion, disinfection and proper health
Among diseases for which there are
specific cures or preventives, he
said, are smallpox, diphtheria and
typhoid fever.
Development of strong bodies and
the dissemination of information re
garding its control have resulted in
cutting in half during the last 20
years the tuberculosis death rate.
Hie anti-tuberculosis oampalgn has
brought other benefits, Lockhead
said, in that it has taught the public
the Importance of fresh air, better
housing conditions, proper nourish
ment, controlled spitting and the
proper pasteurization of milk.
Cancer is on tthe increase and
many persons are dying,of it, and yet
it is curable in the majority of cases
if it is recognized early enough and
correct treatment Is given while it is
still a local and comparatively mild
and minor condition. If everyone,
particularly persons past 40 years of
age, would pay attention to appar
ently minor troubles and go to their
physicians, cancers would be discov
ered in plenty of time to result in a
cure in a large majority of cases.

Dr. Wsstley Also Discusses
Shorter Life Expectancy
in Mddle-Aged
Grand Forks, N. D., May 7.—(JP) —
Asserting that the country physician
soon will vanish unless something is
done to Increase his income, Dr. M.
D. Westley, Cooperstown, today rec
ommended to the state health officers
association that steps be taken to ex
pand the field of practice of the
country practitioner.
The cost of equipment and post
graduate work, Dr. Westley said, is
heavy. As a remedy he suggested
that country physicians be trained
and plan to do some surgery such as
the removal of tonsils, and adenoids.
With thorough preparation and prop
er equipment this is practical, he
said, and much of this work will re
main undone unless it is done in the
home community.
From the latter standpoint, Dr.
Westley said, it would be a big ad
vance 'in promoting the general
health of the public if the duties of
the country practitioner were broad
ened. Many of the so-called degen
erative diseases are caused by defec
tive teeth and tonsils, he said. Among
these he listed not only rheumatism
and ear troubles, but stones in the
kidneys and complications incident
to childbirth.
Statistics show a higher death rate
for the so-called diseases of middle
age, Dr. Westley said, and asserted if
this tendency continues for the next
half century as it has for the last 50
years, “our political, industrial and
professional leaders will have an even
shorter life expectancy after 40 than
they have today.” Included in the list
of ailments proving more fatal to
middle-aged persons, as listed by Dr.
Westley, are heart disease, bright’s
disease, cancer, apoplexy and high
blood pressure. t
Modern environment with its speed,
noise and constant nervous and phy
sical pressure, accelerates the normal
aging process, he said, and recom
mended that hotpe in fluences attempt
to curb these tendencies. In this
connection he urged that sight be not
lost of the efficacy of song and music
as one method of relieving mental
Among causes of physical distress,''
Dr. Westley listed the use of foods -
containing caffein and similar drugs,
and of tobacco; overeating, particu
larly of meat and sugar; lack of regu-.

examination with consequent failure
to detect diseases and conditions
which may prove serious if nos
- before they are well started.

North Dakota had, a lower rate of
deaths from accidental causes it prob
ably yrould have the lowest general
death rate in the country, Myrtle C.
Lee, director of the bureau of vital
statistics, told North Dakota health
directors at their convention here to
Accidents cause more deaths among
children of from 1 to 9 years and
among males from 10 to 49 years than
any other single cause, she said.
During the last three years, from
1927 to 1929, inclusive, 1,871 accidental
deaths were reported in North Dakota,
Nnss Lee said. And, strangely enough,
the tabulation showed that more acci
dents occur in the home than in any
other single place. •
The total number of deaths for the
three-year period she divided as fol
lows: Home accidents, 341; public ac
cidents, other than motor vehicle ac
cidents, 261; industrial accidents, 218;
and motor vehicle accidents, 286.
Of the home accidents, 97 were due
to scalds, 84 to burns, scalds and ex
plosions, 47 to - asphyxiation and suf
focation, 36 to poison, 10 to cuts and
scratches, and 67 to other causes.

‘Ron jola Truly
Great Medicine,’
Says Omaha Lady
New Cpmpound Quickly Ban
ished Stomach Ailment and
Wins Eager Praise
The amazing record of Konjola, the
new and different medicine for ills of
the stomach, liver, kidneys and
bowels, and rheumatism, neuritis and
nervousness would often challenge
belief were the actual facts not
known and verified.
It should be remembered, however,
that Konjola is more than “just an
other medicine.” Compounded of 32
ingredients. 22 of them the juices of
roots and herbs of known medicinal
value, this super-medicine attacks the
very source of the ailment, sweeps the
system free of accumulated poisons
and impurities, stimulates the ailing
organs and thus aids Nature in the
lestoratlon of new and vigorous
health. The experience of Miss Grace
Henley, 122 North Twenty-sixth
street, Omaha, should be of interest
to all who suffer from stomach ail
ment. The Konjola Man at the Hall
Drug Store, Third and Broadway,
Bismarck, can tell you of hundreds
of cases, many of them right here in
Bismarck and vicinity, where this
master medicine has brought health
and happiness after all other medicines
and treatments tried had failed. See
the Konjola Man today and hear more
of the record of Konjola. Learn what
it is, what it does, what it can be
reasonablly expected to do for you.
Here is what Miss Henley said re
garding her own experience with this
great medicine:
“Since undergoing an operation'
some time ago I seemed unable to re
cover my strength. My greatest dif
ficulty was a weakness of the stom
ach. It did not matter what I ate,
gases accumulated and I bloated ter
ribly. At times the pressure against
the chest cavity became so severe that
my heart action was affected and I
became short of breath and often
dizzy. Belching spells caused hot
sour liquid heartburn for hours at a
time. Griping pains in my abdomen,
more frequently at night, made my
life a misery. There were days when
I gave up entirely and took to my
bed in helpless misery. I tried many
medicines and treatments but noth
ing. appeared to afford me any relief.
“Tile experience of many people In
Omaha encouraged. me td try Kon
jola. I had not used this new medi
cine a week before I realized |ta|pt I
was on the way to new health. No
one will ever know the relief I felt.
The first two bottles so Improved my
general condition that I continued
until I had taken four bottles In all.
My stomach trouble completely van
wished. Today I eat what I wish of
the most nourishing foods and suffer
no inconvenience whatever. I do not
bloat and the pressure which worried
me so much is* never felt. The terri
ble belching spells never occur. My
stomach has not been in the good
condition it is today for a long time.
I hove, gained weight, strength and
energy. My entire system has been
built, up until I am in better health
than I have enjoyed in years. Kon
jola is truly a great medicine and I
am recommending it to all my
And so it goe§' the same glad story
of relief whenever Konjola is given a
chance to make good.
