Ask Dr. Gott 2/24

DEAR DR. GOTT: Last year, I experienced what I thought might be a "silent heart attack." I had chest pain that extended up to my jaw and ears with a feeling of pressure, etc., that lasted for about two minutes. After another bout of the same thing a week later, I went to my family doctor, who did an EKG and ordered a barium swallow.

In fact, officials of the Savannah Automobile Club (SAC) had already sponsored a fact-finding tour of the state's roads in the summer of 1914. Starting in Savannah, the group caravanned across state to Columbus.
