The fact that there are twice as many widows as widowers in, the United" States has led the Equitable Life Assurance Society to issue a recommendation that all men adopt the practice of President "Wilson in undergoing a _ regular physical examination by physicians; President Wilson is examined each week by a White House physician to detect any so that it may be corrected before illness results, but the j actuaries who: have been compiling the figures on widows and widowers suggest that twice a year would be sufficient. It is ■ not because widows are more reluctant to re-enter the marriage state than widowers that in 1910 there were 3,176,228 /widows in the United States and only 1,471,390 widowers. The reason is that, according to the expert*}, more husbands than wives die of preventable diseases. Had the men, who are exposed'-to more diseases than women, submitted regularly to examinations l>y physicians, and following the advice given to- eradicate' the early signs of disease, it is held that there would be no.more widows in the United States than, widowers.
