Some of the text in this Vintage Ad:


Pneumonia fights a losing battle. Since 1934, prompt medical

care and new drugs have halved deaths

among pneumonia patients! But pneumonia is

still dangerous, because some kinds defy penicillin

and sulfa, and may attack those

weakened by fatigue, grippe, or un-

usual exposure.


Don’t Give Pneumonia a Chance!


If you start to sniffle and sneeze, take care of

yourself-for a severe or protracted cold is often

the forerunner of pneumonia.

Drink plenty of fruit juices, milk, and water.

Go to bed if possible. If the cold is a bad one, or

liangs on more than a few days, consult your


Pneumonia's first warning is often a severe

chill, followed by a fever. It may already have

attacked if you have coughing accompanied b}'

pain in the side or chest, rapid, labored breathing,

or thick, rust-colored sputum.

If any of these symptoms appear, call a doctor

at once! Go to bed odd remain absolutely quiet.

Only your own physician can determine

whether it is advisable to use serum, sulfa drugs.

or penicillin in your case. Even then they should

be used only under his direct supervision.

Unfortunately, certain infections such as virus

pneumonia do not respond to such aids. In cases

like these, prompt diagnosis and medical and

nursing core are even more essential, and will

increase tremendously the probability of recovery

without serious complications.

While medical science is helping to bring pneumonia

down in the "cause-of-death" list, its

prevention is still up to you! For further information

about pneumonia, send for Metropolitan's

free booklet, 16-N, "Respiratory Diseases."
