Do It Yourself

The modern trend toward the reawakening of inherent abilities and the stimulation of individual incentive reached new heights in Columbus, all within the space of a few weeks recently, when a local businessman who ran a "Do-It-Yourself" store was discovered to have been printing his own counterfeit money. Having no direct relationship, but of equal interest, was the article appearing in an Atlanta newspaper that described the Bradley Clinic's "Do-It-Yourself-Psychiatry-Kit."

Intriguing medical possibilities along this line would seem to be unlimited. Before long it might not be too unreasonable to expect the appearance of such handy packages as a "Handy Hip-nailing Unit for the Amateur," the "Take-Your-Own-Xray-Kit," or the "Simple-Snare-for-Bathroom-Tonsillectomy," - maybe even a "Home-Hysterectomy Set."
