ADVANTAGES OF NEW SYRINGE: ASEPSIS, contamination impossible. POSITIVE WORKING: The metal plunger screws into the rubber plug, adjusting

pressure and making action positive. Metal finger-rest with rubber guard at top of syringe prevents any possibility

of syringe breaking or injuring operator's hand. Needle attached with flexible rubber joint permits motion of patient without

danger of tearing the skin-a great advantage in administering to children. Our new adjustable rubber packing possesses great advantages; it is readily

sterilized, does not harden, shred, absorb serum or become pulpy. Simplicity and accuracy-no parts to get out of order.
