1GRIP CONTINUES TO SPREAD--
YOU CAN HELP TO KILL IT
Sickness continues to travel over
the country, carrying a grip with it.
This grip is on, and in the general
public to a stage that is right seri
ous. Government reports loom the
situation up as startling. Folks who
will not be warned will fallvright in
line and take to a sick bed "if they
don't watch out" Those who will be
warned will probably dodge the epi
demic and help bring the run of grip
to a sudden close. Washington's re
port shows the following:
Philadelphia 141 deaths from in
fluenza in five weeks; 72 deaths last
week. Pneumonia cases, 881,- with
284 deaths last week.
Memphis 7,000 to 8,000 cases of
grip.
Cleveland 100,000 cases of grip;
much pneumonia.
New York Marked increase of
pneumonia and in death rate of per
sons over 65 years. Health depart-
Lment has sent out warnings.
Detroit 100,000 ca.se of grip; hos
pitals overcrowded.
Chicago 666 deaths from pneu
monia in December, with total num
ber of reported cases 1,440.
And that only takes in six of the
cities.
If you must cough out in public,
cough in your handkerchief j if you
must sneeze, do it up your sleeve;
anything to play safe and not spread
or tak'e grip.
The situation has become so seri
ous that kissing and even laughing
right out in the open has almost got
to b'e tabooed.
Swat vthe grip germ by playing
safe!
