“In the development of Canada women have made a splendid record.” Basic health advice for girls and young women, with glances upon exercise and diet, but primarily aimed at sexual purity and the campaign against venereal diseases: “A handshake extends a friendly greeting. A kiss should mark a pledge of love. A girl who does not value these expressions highly and use them sparingly makes herself cheap and weakens her power of self-protection.” With a solicitation for funds to the Canadian Social Hygiene Council. Issued as a tie-in to the 1933 American exploitation-educational venereal disease film, Damaged Lives.
