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 night. 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."
