He said high blood pressure occurs in 10 to 15% of our society who are over 50 but many are not aware they have the problem. As the con­trol is essential to prevent heart and kidney damage he suggested moderate diet and more relaxed life style. If detected between 30 and 45, control is easier so he recommended a screening program to record blood pressure and be aware of normal. This record should be kept with you in case of accident for a strange doctor to use as it will provide him with your normal rate and determine treat­ment then. He stressed the . importance of $ good breakfast as blood sugar is low then. Dr-. Adler announced the prevent­ive program for detecting scoliosis in school children has been approved by our Divisional School Board. This deformity of the spine gets worse after puberty so early detection is essent­ial for treatment. i Pres.
