Epidemic Probably Not Spanish in
Origin-Germ Still Unknown-Peo
ple Should Guard Against "Droplet
Infection"-Surgeon General Blue
Makes Authoritative Statement.
Washington, D. C.-(Special.)-Al
though King Alfonso of Spain was
one of the victims of the Influenza epi
demic in 1S03 and again this summer,
Spanish authorities repudiate any
claim to influenza as a "Spanish" dis
ease. If the people of this country do
not take care the epidemic will be
come so widespread throughout the
United Stales that soon we shall hear
the disease called "American" inilu
In response to a request for definite
Information concerning Spanish inilu
enza, Surgeon General Rupert Blue of
the U. S. Public Health Service has
authorized the following ollicial inter

"The disease now occurring in this
country and called "Spanish Iniluen
za' resembles II very contagious kind

in the head, eyes, ears, ba'ck or other
parts of the body and a feeling of se
vere sickness. In most of the cases the
symptoms disappear after three or four
days, the patient then rapidly recover
ing. Some of the patients, however,
develop pneumonia, or inflammation
of the ear, or meningitis, and many of
these complicated cases die. Whether
this so-called 'Spanish' influenza is
identical with the epidemics of iniluen
za of earlier years is not yet known.
"Epidemics of iniluenza have visited
this country since 1G47. It is interest
ing to know that this first epidemic
was brought here from Valencia,
Spain. Since that time there lia ve
been numerous epidemics of the dis
ease. In 1SS9 and 1S00 an epidemic'
of iniluenza, starting somewhere in the
Orient, spread first to Russia and
thence over practically the entire civ
ilized world. Three years later there !
was another flare-up of the disease.'
Both limes the epidemic spread wide-!
ly over the United States. I
"Although tiie present epidemic is
called 'Spanish iniluenza,' there is no
reason to believe that it originated in
.Spain. Some writers who have studied
the (pies;ion believe that the epidemic
came from tile Orient and tiley call at
tention lo "the fact that the Germans
mention the disease as occurring along
; be eastern front in the summer and
fall of 1917."
How can "Spanish influenza" be rec- j
"There is as yet no certain way in i
which a singh' case of 'Spanish inilu
enza' ' ?ai be recognized. i>n the om
er hand, recognition is easy where
there is a group of cases, In contrast
lo ila- on; brea ks of ordinary coughs
ami colds, which usually occur in the
cold months, epidemics of influenza
may occur ai any season of the year.
Thus the prosein epidemic raged most
intense!;,- in Europe in .May, .lune and
July. Moreover, in lin- case of ordi
nary colds, the general symptoms
(fever, pain, depression) are by no*
means as severe or as sudden in th<-ir
onset as tiley are in iniluenza. Final
ly, ordinary colds du not spread
through the community so rapidly or
so extensively as does iniluenza.
"In most cases a person taken sick
with influenza feels sick rai ber sud
denly. Ih- feels weak, has pains in the
eyes, ears, bead or buck, and may be
sore all over. Many patients feel
dizzy, some vomit. Most of the pa
tients complain of'feeling chilly, and
willi ibis conies a fever in which thc
temperature rises to pm to 104. In
most casts the pulse remains relative

If the patient complains of fever ar
