How To Avoid The Flu Evidence of the importance which the Federal health authori- ties attach to the flu menace and its possLble effects in the Nation- at-large, should such an epidemic develop, is seen in the spgcial bul- letin+ just issued bY the Public Health&apos; Service. Six rules on how to avoid influ- enza (the full name of the mala- dy) and four others on what to do after suspected exposure to it are laid down. The first six are as follows: "1. Avoid needless contact with others, especially people who are coughing, sneezing or sniff- ling. "2. Avoid exposure to inclem- ent weather, but take advantage of as much open air and sunshine asyou can. "3. Be sure that your home is I"HE MOUNT PULASKI TIME.NEWS, MOUNT PULASKI.

"You said it, Andy. He sho' did a good job carvin' you out o' a ordinary piece o' wood. You sho' looks yo' natural lazy self wld yo' feet u on the desk." "Listen here, Amos. I resents dat. Yassuh, I does--- I resents dat. What you ,mean, lazy?" "Oh, Andy, I'se only kiddin'. Don't get mad th me. 'e been doing dese broadcasts together nearly 15 years." Yes, folks, here they are in the flesh--your perennial favorites "Amos (left 'n' Andy" with their blackface counterparts. Amos is Freeman Gosden, and Andy is Charles Correll. "3. Do not encourage visitors. "4. Do not indulge in self-diag- nosis or self-treatment. Consult your doctor." It is interesting to note the prompt and efficient steps which the War Department has taken to prevent the spread of this insidi- ous ailment in the various Army camps and stations, thus safe- guarding the health of the troops now engaged in the training peri- or under the national defense pro- :grain. Uncle Sam proposes that the young manhood entrusted to his care shall have every comfort and protection during this term of military service. The general public will do well to heed these simple rules. Cer- tainly no one who passed through the trying flu epidemic of 1918 will be inclined to doubt their wisdom and efficacy in the fact of what, uncontrolled, might prove a seri- ous disaster to the Nation.

Guard against fatigue; get plenty of rest and sleep. "6. Wear clothing suitable to the weather." It will be noted that in general these suggestions are quite sensi- ble and appropriate as health measures under any circumstanc- es. Under normal conditions we often neglect such practical pre- cautions, but they always pay div- idends. The special admonitions for those who believe they have been exposed are as follows: "1. At the first sign of a cold and especially if you have fever-- go to bed and stay there until your doctor says it is safe to get up. By so doing you may prevent serious complications and check the spread of the disease to oth- ers. "2. Cover all coughs or snee- zes with a handkerchief, preferab- ly paper tissues, which should be promptly burned.
