    • Description:
      Cartoon of "The Public" showing a handerchief to an ill child: "Use your handkerchief and do your bit to protect me!" Colds, influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis are spread this way.

      The Bureau of the Public Health Service, Treasury Department, has just issued a striking poster, drawn by Berryman, the well-known Washington cartoonist. This shows at a glance and in language understood by everybody just how influenza and other respiratory diseases may be guarded against. The poster exemplifies the modern method of health education. Not so many years ago under similar circumstances, the health authorities would have issued an official, dry, but scientifically accurate, bulletin teaching the r6le of droplet infection in the spread of respiratory diseases. The only ones who would have understood the bulletin would have been those who already knew all about the subject; the man in the street, the plain citizen, and the many millions who toil for their living, would have had no time and no desire to wade through the technical phraseology. Copies of this poster can be obtained free of charge by writing to the Surgeon General, United States Public Health Service, Washington, D. C.
