"HEALTH" IS SUBJECT
OK CHAPEL TALK
In his chapel talk last Monday,
Mr. Wells spoke about health and
the most common causes of death.
He brought out in his talk that al
though the expectancy of life has
increased 20 years during the last
century, a person who attains the
age of 35 has. no better chance
of living to an old age than was
the case two generations ag6.
Mr. Wells stated that the nine
most important causes of death are:
: (1) heart trouble, (2) cancer, (3)
apoplexy, (4) pneumonia, (5) acci
dents, (6) kidney trouble, (7) tu
berculosis, (8) diabetes, and (9) ap
pendicitis. "Careful study shows, that these
causes may ie delayed from five
to 20 years and in many cases en
tirely eliminated," said Mr. Wells.
Suggestions, which may prolong
life were listed as follows: (1) an
nual physical examination, (2) well
balanced regular meaLs, (3) regular
sleep in well-ventilated rooms, (4)
avoid habitual over-exertion, (5)
regular exercise, (6) avoid over
eating because people who are over
weight .usually suffer from heart
As the football season draws to
a close, the school is mindful of
the fact that the team's success
was largely made possible by the

medical aid and their willingness, to
assist in every emergency through
out the season. . : "
