"I want to bring the children to your office, doctor. They seem well, but it is time for another examination." When do you see your Doctor? F You wait until sickness develops you are taking advantage of only part of your doctor's skill. Make him your Health Counsellor at all times - not only when you are ill, but when you are well. It is the modern way to take care of yourself. See your doctor at regular intervals. He is familiar with the prevention of various dis eases which were once regarded as almost unavoidable, and the control of others that less than forty years ago were often fatal. Do you know the latest findings of medical science on such subjects as preventive in oculation and vaccination? Do you know that the heart and other organs should be carefully examined, after every attack of an infectious disease, to see whether or not they need temporary or continuing care to lessen the danger of lasting injury? You and the other members of your family ~'' ''s' 1?11 mgnn, AI nmmM 1f &fl an mi should have a regular and complete physi cal check up.
