^ Here's One Of The Best
Horae Mays To Build Up Red Blood!
Tern girts who suffer from simple
nueitua or who lose so much during
monthly periods that you are pale, feel
tired weak, "dragged out"—this may
be due to low blood-iron—
So start today—try Lydia E. Pink

blood-iron tonics you can buy to help
build up red blood to give more
strength and energy—in such cases.

and child care services and an ex
pansion of medical research and
education. Above all it must bring
adequate medical and hospital
care within reach of all the people.
Today, approximately 100.000.
000 Americans cannot afford ade
quate medical care. National
Health Insurance, covering the
population, fianced primarily thru
contributions from employees is
the answer. It will enable every
one to receive comprehensive me
dical services. It will make all
Americans free to go to doctors
and hospitals of their own choice,
free from worry over the costs,
free from fear of the unpredict
able. It will assure most doctors
more adequate and more stable
| HOW WILL IT WORK?
Every worker will pay approxi
mately one and one-half percent
of his income (up to $3600) into
a "Health Service Account”. Em
ployers will contribute an equal
amount. In return the insured
AND HIS FAMILY will be entit
led to complete medical and hos
HOW WILL IT HELP DOCTORS?
In addition to assuring them
more adequate and more stable in
come, National Health Insurance
will make it possible for them to
practice in communities of their
own choice, even in low income
rural areas without loss of income.
They will be able to make the
marvels of modern medical care
1 available without concern about
I the patient’s ability to pay.
HOW WILL IT HELP FARMERS
.'lore doctors ana specialists win
be given incentive to practice in
rural arear! Most important it
! will enable rural areas to construct
and maintain adequate hospital
and health facilities. A farmer’s
! low cash income will no longer be
a barrier to good medical service
! for himself and his family. Rural
medical and hospital cooperatives
will be encouraged and given fin
HOW WILL IT HELP VETS?
VETERANS AND THEIR FAM
ILIES will be assured access to
complete medical service from the
doctors and hospitals of their own
choosing. Special benefits now af
forded a veteran through veter
an’s hospitals are limited to his
own service-connected disabilities.
HOW WILL IT HELP BUSINESS
About five hundred million man
days of work are lost annually
due to illness and accidents. Fuil
medical care under National
Health Insurance will decrease ab
senteeism. labor turnover, and in
crease productivity. Business men
and their families, moreover, will
also be eligible for benefits.
WHAT WILL IT COST?
The cost of National Health In
surance will not be greater than
our present insufficient and waste
ful fee for service system accord
ing to a report of the Subcommit
tee on Health and Education of
the Senate Committee on Educa
tion and Labor.

Gas Change Must be Made Next Summer
in Order to Meet City’s Critical Gas
Needs... Regardless of NATURAL GAS
Omaha's need for additional gas supply is critical. The city must make a
change in its gas next summer, regardless of the outcome of the Natural Gas
election November 5.
If Natural Gas is approved by a majority of voters—the changeover will be
made to straight Natural Gas.
If Natural Gas is not approved—then a change-over will be made to an 800
B.t.u. mixed gas, containing 75% Natural Gas, now authorized by state law.
In either case—your gas appliances will have to be converted to use the
new gas. There will be little diiierence as between converting your appliances
to Natural Gas or mixed gas. The process is almost exactly the same.
The expense of converting your gas appliances will be paid for entirely by
the Metropolitan Utilities District. Whether the change is to full Natural Gas
or mixed gas . . . you will pay no charge whatsoever, either for materials
or labor. NO BOND ISSUE OR PUBLIC DEBT WILL BE NECESSARY IN
ORDER TO PAY FOR THE CHANGEOVER.
Please consider these points as you make up your
mind about NATURAL GAS:
1, Omaha is now using a 50% mixture oi Natu
ral Gas, and this mixture must be increased to
75% il voters do not approve full Natural Gas
2, You are not voting as between Manufactured
and Natural Gas. You are voting your choice
between 75% Natural Gas and full Natural
Gas, because our present gas must be ad
vanced to 75% Natural Gas mixture regardless
of the election outcome in order to meet the
acute need of the city for a greater gas supply.
3, In either case—a changeover will have to be
made next summer. The cost will be paid for
by the Utilities District
4* Gas engineering authorities have advised the
city that a 75% mixed gas would be only a
temporary measure and that within a tew
years Omaha would have no choice but to go
to lull Natural Gas service. Putting oil the
decision to go to full Natural Gas would prac
tically double the changeover expenses.
5, Approving full 100% Natural Gas now will
assure abundant gas for all purposes in the
future, and will avoid further inconvenience,
expense and difficulty as Omaha's gas de
mands increase through the years.
If You Want NATURAL GAS 0 VOTE YES!
