Strang measures to combat the en

tates have been taken by the Immi
gration Service, acting in concert
with the Public Health Service. Com
missioner Caminetti asserted.
"During my recent tour of inspec
tion In Europe. during which I visited
eight countries." said Caminetti, "I saw
the great danger that confronted this
country through the great hordes of
Europeaps planning to cone to the
United States, and immediately upon
my tturn strict orders were issued
to all Immigration stations to take
the utmost precautions to prevent the
entry of all persons who might bring
typhus germs with them. Despite all
our precautions, some cases have
slipped in. but we are confident that
the plague will inever get beyond the
confines of the quarantine sones."
Caminetti said that a number of the
countries of Western Europe were
aiding in the work of stamping out
typhus by inspecting and fumigating
the baggage of all prospective immi
grants passing through their coun
tries to ports to take passage for
"The supposition is that when the
emigrants get on board ship they are
clean and free of vermin and germs,"
said Caminetti, "but sometimes they
get in contact with infected persons
despite the utmost precautions.'

of the hospital service at Ellis Is

recent European trip.

"Dr. Kerr also has had large ex

down the threatened typhus plague."
