Tea for You, With Delicious Cranberry Pastries!
(See Recipes Below)
. . . And Cookies, Too!
You may not serve tea, and you
* may not even have coffee, but
you sun ime inai
pause in the aft
ernoon with a few
good triends, to
t mull over the
I happenings of the
day, to get philo
sophical over the
events that touch all of us. But have
that pause whenever possible, even
if you have just fruit juice and a
few cookies or cakes. It1* as im
portant as the bigger things you do.
Have a hot or cold drink as the
climate dictates, flavor them with
honey if the sugar supply is low.
Some supplies of tea are still ob
tainable for the hot or iced bever
age, if you use the coffee ration at
Chocolate and cocoa are obtain
able now and then and make excel
lent hot beverages. Made with milk,
they’re nourishing, too. And if you
make them with canned milk they’re
delightful. Somehow, the canned
milks have an affinity with chocolate
Fruit juices have been a summer
standby, but you should discover
their winter uses, too! Hot lemon
ade is delightful as are combina
tions of lemon, orange, grapefruit
and pineapple juice.
Those of you who like spending
cold afternoons in front of the open
fire will enjoy a small glass of a
cool drink with a few tasty cookies.
For this purpose, try mixing equal
quantities of cranberry and orange
juice or apricot and pineapple juice
served in pretty glasses with cook
Small cakes and cookies are an
attractive accompaniment with re
freshing drinks. Our first one to
day is a sugar-saver, butter-saver,
quickly and easily made:

cases could thus be
cured. There were
so many cases in
which the removal
of the infection did
not relieve the signs

doubt that infection
was the cause or a

worxers in arthritis that injury, diet,
cold and exposure, sluggishness of

may be a few physicians who do not
mention infection of teeth and ton
sils as a cause but the great ma
jority still include infection of teeth
and tonsils, but do not emphasize
this infection as much as formerly.
Among the causes as mentioned
above are cold and dampness, in
jury, diet and surgical removal of
infection—teeth, tonsils, gall blad
Some months ago Dr. Frank H.
Krusen, Rochester, Minn., in the
Journal of the American Medical
Association pointed out that there
are three groups of physical meas
ures which can be used, after the
cause has been removed insofar as
this is possible. These three are:
thermal (heat and cold); massage,
manipulation and resting the joint
by splinting, and exercise, postural
training (teaching the patient to sit
and stand properly), and rest.
Whether these methods are used at
home, or in hospital, they should be
continued for some time after signs
and symptoms have apparently dis
appeared. Thus those who have
been treated in hospital should con
tinue to have these treatments when
they arrive home.
In regard to heat or thermal treat
ment, any kind of heat applied in
various ways—heat lamps, bakers,
hot tub baths, or placing affected
part alternately in hot and cold wa
As to massage, a member of the
patient’s family should be instructed
in the simple methods of massage.
Heat, then massage, then heat again
is usual method of using massage

Various Causes of
High Blood Pressure
In former days before the inven
tion of the machine to measure blood
pressure, the physician placed his
fingers on the blood vessels in wrist
or elsewhere and if they were hard
(like a pipestem) the blood pressure
was said to be high and a stroke
of apoplexy might be expected; if
soft, the patient was not likely to
have a stroke.
Although a hardened vessel means
that more pressure is needed to push
the blood through it and the pres
sure will increase as the vessel be
comes harder, nevertheless it is now
known that hardened blood vessels
(where elastic tissue in wall of blood
vessel has been replaced by hard
tissue) is not the only cause of high
blood pressure. There are other
causes for high blood pressure, one
of which causes the elastic tissue in
the blood vessel to contract or tight
en and the blood needs increased
pressure to pass through these ves
sels made smaller by having their
elastic walls tightened.
What causes the muscles every
where to tighten or contract? Ex
citement, anxiety, fear, overwork,
will cause tenseness and tightening
of nerves and muscles. And just as
the large muscles of the body be
come tensed by the emotions, so do
the tiny muscles of the blood ves
sels (though not under control of the
will) become tightened, thus raising
the blood pressure.
It can thus be seen that when your
blood pressure has been tested and
found to be above normal, the high
blood pressure may be due to some
organic disease or change in the
walls of the vessels caused by in
On the other hand, the high blood
pressure may be due to the emo
tions causing a tightening of the
blood vessels making them smaller
and so making increased pressure
If the high pressure is due to dam
age to the walls of the vessel—or
ganic disease—treatment is rest and
guarding against further infections
by regular visits to your physician
and dentist.

Q. Would a doctor tell a patient
he did not have syphilis if he did
have it? My physician told me my
test showed no syphilis was present, j
but I am doubtful and would like to !
set my mind at ease.
A. If the physician told you that
you did not have syphilis you should
stop worrying. If syphilis were pres
ent he would see that you were un
der treatment at once. However,
you can go to your nearest hospital
clinic and get another blood test.
Discarded Silk Stockings
Help Keep U. S. Guns Booming
American ingenuity has scored another triumph. Millions
of pairs of discarded silk hosiery, hitherto useless for textile
reclamation, are now serving an important war purpose—
powder bags. Woven from reclaimed silk, powder bags are
used to hold explosive matter to generate the power to dis
charge shells from major caliber guns. Silk burns completely
and leaves no embers, hence eliminating the necessity of
cleaning the barrel during action.
In the first month of the collection campaign American
women turned in 2,500,000 pairs of discarded silk stockings.
I u
Silk stockings which can no
longer be worn are being collect
ed in stores throughout the coun
try as shown in picture above,
for conversion into pon der bags. \
Many women’s clubs, too, are en
gaged in this important work.
Right: Removing the cotton
parts from discarded silk stock
ings before processing into pow
der bags. Here Mrs. Mary Gla
du cuts and sorts material.
Any stockings made entirely
of silk or containing mixtures of
silk are useful for conversion into
powder bags. They should be
washed before they are turned in
for reclamation.
Left: Sewing primer caps for
powder bags from cloth made of
discarded silk stockings. Fifteen
pairs of old stockings provide
sufficient cloth for an average
size powder bag.
Old stockings, after haring cotton parts removed, are fed into a
picking tender which shreds the material. Here Daphis Duchaine,
age 67 and with four sons in the service, feeds the machine.
It takes husky men to lift the heavy powder bags into the big
guns. Hold your ears! Here go those silk stockings!
Lay ers of silk cloth are cut to specifications with a power knife.

Pull the Trigger on
Constipation, unth
Ease for Stomach, too
When constipation brings on discom
fort after meals, stomach upset, bloating,
dizzy spells, gas, coated tongue, and baa
breath, your stomach is probably "crying
the blues" because your bowels don’t
move. It calls for Laxative-Senna to pul
the trigger on those lazy bowels, com
bined with Syrup Pepsin for perfect ease
to your stomach in taking. For years,
many Doctors have given pepsin prepa
rations in their prescriptions to maka
medicine more agreeable to a touchy
stomach. So be sure your laxative coo
tains Syrup Pepsin. Insist on Dr. Cald
well’s laxative Senna combined with
Syrup Pepsin. See how wonderfully the
Laxative Senna wakes up lazy nerves and
muscles in your intestines to bring wel
come relief from constipation. And tha
good old Syrup Pepsin makes this laxa
tive so comfortable and easy on your
stomach. Even finicky children love the
taste of this pleasant family laxative.
Take Dr. Caldwell’s Laxative Senna com
bined with Syrup Pepsin, as directed oo
label or as your doctor advises, and feel
world's better. Get genuine Dr. Caldwell’s.
