Have A Cold I
Better Go To Bed
The best possible treatment for
a cold is to go to bed, but if you
can't take time for that, then by
all means guard against over-tired
ness, the College Health Service
advised yesterday.
To avoid getting tired, and to
facilitate recovery, the staff made
these recommendations:'
Don't stand when you can sit;
don't sit when you can lie.
Get two hours extra sleep each
Eat as your appetite dictates,
'but increase your daily ration of
water and fruit juice.
Keep comfortably warm.
If your cold is not cured in three
or four days or if you develop
symptoms other than moderate
discomfort, malaise and a freely
running nose, see your doctor, the
staff advised, because your cold is
now complicated, past the filtrable
virus stage:
"This means," the doctors said,
"that you are a good candidate for
streptococcic sore throat, sinusitis,
abscessed ears, mastoids, bron
chitis, and pneumonia. These, un
like the common cold, are caused
by germs your physician has been
battling successfully for years."
