Better Homes & Gardens February 1959 Magazine Article: How do you know you're not a diabetic?

Pages: 10, 12

How do you know you're not a diabetic?

Two million Americans have diabetes-- and at least half of them don't know it. Because they've failed to get the simple physical checkup that would reveal its presence, one million men, women, and children in this country are totally unaware that they have a disease which, if uncontrolled, might endanger their lives. Besides these two million known and unknown diabetics, there are 4,750,000 people living in the United States today who will develop the disease.

What about COLLEGE on CREDIT?

Anyone who follows the giddy fortunes of higher education must have detected, in recent months, the growth of a curious inconsistency in America's attitude toward its colleges.

We all got home from school and work without mishap on the day of the big blizzard. As dark fell with the soft whiteness, we realized we were snowed in for the night.
