WHAT PRICE HEALTH Heahh is indispensable and invalu- able. There is an inseparable rela- tionshi1) between body an(t mind. hn- 1)aired health always mars, to a great- er or lesser degree, and sometimes jeopardizes the attainment of our high- est aspirations. Fro:n a purely monetary standpoint the loss of wages from absence due to illness anlonnts to some two billion dollars each year. The permanent in- terruption of wages due t() l)remature and postponable death is estimated at six billion dollars. The cost of care for the sick (not the cost of medical care, but including it) is three billion dollars a year. A grand total of elev- en billion dollars, or nearly one hun- (Ired dollars for every 1nan. wonlall, and chihl in this country. a munity to maintain his health. The success of your doctor in at- tending to your aihnents will depend much on your faith in him. There nmst be a patient-physician relation- ship. It is true that you. can receive a diptheria anti-toxin injection or smallpox vaccination without an iota of faith in the doctor administering it, and still receive immunity from the disease. But in the general and spe- cial practice of medicine and surgery a patient-physician faith is of high importance. This can best come from the private physician. It is lost in the British panel system of administering medical care; it would be lost in the socializa- tion of medicine, and it is lost in what we have seen of the industrialization of medicine. The importance of health shouhl in- dicate that we all become more heahh- minded in the sense that we seek to protect our health by good food, san- itary living conditions, hygienic regu- lations, and provision for competent medical attention when illness strikes. By providing financially to guard against health one should make due "allowance in the fanfily budget for the care of the sick, just as we are accus- tomed to allow for rent, groceries, clothing, entertainment, etc. The problem of paying for illness is not to be considered the high cost of medi- cal care, but rather, the high cost of failure to make provision for the care of sickness and the high cost of neg- lect in allowing small illnesses to be- come major and serious aihnents. Statistics 1)rove that 58 per cent of all men who reach the age of fifty years bee~mle del)endent Ul)On society for charity. Why ? Chiefly because most of them never practiced the rule ()f living within their means. The I)()orest Chinese live by the rule, to al- ways save so:he of their earnings re- gardless of how little they earn. A uati~mal el)idenfic of l)leasure-1)hobia has placed a great burden Ul)On char- itv in this country. Provision for the care of sickness is as inlp()rtant ;is provision for food, clothing and sheller. When just pro- vision is made in the family budget, there will be little call upon charity. -- :o:-- THE MASONIC SYMBOL Harry CarT, in his interesting col- umn in the Los Angeles Times, says that "out of a little village near Casa (;rande archeologists have dug up an (,rnament with a perfect reproduction ~,f a Masonic square and eolnpass. Yon can laugh that one off. It was lost or buried thousands of years ago. Usually they cremated their (lead, but in one of the outlying villages is a r~,',m with an alcove walled off. In this alcove was foun(t one of the few skeletons of Casa Grande." --:O:-- The policeman's' son was learning music. "How many beats are there to the bar in this piece of music, Dad?" "Fancy asking a policeman a ques- tion like that," said the boy's mother. "If you asked your daddy how many bars there were to the beat he might have been able to tell you !"--Tit-Bits.
