Conservative estimates place he number of cases In our section," added the ph)slclan, "as 25,000, and It la safe to add another 6000, Scores of the af flicted nctually wait for twenty-four hours and longer before receiving first aid from a ph)slclan.i These patients develop pneumonia, and because of the lack of nurses they die. 'The nurses and doctors on duty In the district have wprked with wonder ful courage, nnd have made great sac rifices, but there Is a limit to their ph) steal endurance They must have rest, which means that others must tnke their places Unless this is done the mortality list will grow. There may be a decided decrease In the number of new cases, but the death list will not diminish unless Immediate steps arc taken to relieve the situation" Dealt Hard Tilovr In those words Doctor Milkman epitomised the influenza situation In his district of the city, a section that has been hard hit by the malady. With a population of approximately 300,000 the Northeast, often called "the workshop of America" has been dealt a severe blow by the Influenza plague. Many of Its prominent citizens have died, and In the poor sections the suffering Is scute. A todr of the section, coupled with talks with overworked ph)slcians ana visits to the hospitals verifies the: asser lions made by Doctor Milkman. His own institution is virtually crippled for the lack of nurses, and other hospitals In the Bection are Jammed to the door; with patients. Individual cases where men and wo men have appealed In vain for medical attention can be cited by the police of tho various districts They are doing j toman service but admit their Inability to do the impossuue. What the police are up against In Philadelphia's worst epidemic Is described by Lieutenant Charles Schwel vver, of the .Clearfield and Belgrade street station. He says: "We have established a medical bu reau and as fast as residents jmone for doctors their names nre listed. Lists of aff listed iiersons are given to the doctors and when possible the patrol takes the sick 11 hospitals Nwnmped by Appeals 'Ordinarily this sjateni -would work, but such a flood of appeals has poured Into the station that at times we have been literally swamped. The doctors are unable to call on all the patients and many persons have actually gone without attention for twenty-four hours and longer. We need more doctors nnd partlcuiaily nurses, for In many of the homes the conditions are pitiful." While Lieutenant Schvvelker was dis cussing tho situation Dr. Samuel J. Nicholson 3169 Belgrade street, entered tho station. He is a retired physician, but volunteered for service when the police made an appeal to him. He has worked twenty-four houra a day for nearly two weeks and Is forced to ad mit0 that he can stand up under the strain but a short time longer. "It Is pathetic," he said, "to enter some of the homes. In our district, known as Port Richmond, we have about 000 cases and the worst feature con nected with the crisis Is. the lack of nurses. In many homes' every member of the family Is stricken and with no body to care for them the suffering Is Intense. The Hesson family, at 2239 Ann street. Is particularly hard hit, for the mother, father and six children are 111. What we need is a force of S00 good, motherly women to enter these homes nnd care for1 the sjek. It Is not necessary for them to be trained nurses, for all that, a majority of the cases need only plain old-fashioned care." The force of that argument Is ap parent In the case of Toward Sonne born, 2011 East Tioga street. For ears he has ben a foreman at the Cramps ehlpyard. On Bunday he was stricken, but It was Monday before a doctor reached him. Pneumonia bad develop ed and when the physician arrived he was be)ond medical aid. He died George Brown, a policeman, living at 3551 Kensington avenue, was stricken and In the next day or two his wife and five children contracted the dis ease. There was nobody In the house to care for them, but Brown opened a window and called for aid. The po lice Bent two- of the children to a hos pital and called a relative, who Is now at the home. As a Tesult of this at tention the Brown family Is doing nice ly. Joseph Peake, 31E1 Gaul street, for years a guard at Independence Hall, was stricken and within a day or two his wife and six children were taken 111. They received good caro and are on the road to recovery. "Send nurses and a force of druggists to this district," Is the plea of R H. Machtsney. a druggist at 2636 Kast Clearfield street. 'For two weeks I have been on my feet for twenty-four hours a day and I'm about played out. A walk through the district will reveal crece in every street, In fact. In almost every block, and many lives could have been saved If nurses had been sent here." Machesney's reference to crepe was not necessary, for a short walk In the district will convince an) body tWat death has levied a heavy toll upon this section. Vadertakera Overworked . tlndertaleers, like ph)siclans, are over worked to such an extent that they are unable to bury and many victims await burial. Dut caring for the living Is more Important than caring for the dead, according to Northeast residents, and they are bending every energy to cope with the situation. "We nave rcuni a uoinr, says deorge V. Teas, financial secretary ot k. Northeastern Hospital, "where we? must be "P and dolni"' u ' ""ly to. minimize the situation becauie It i real and serious.

URGENT APPEAL FOR NURSES Lebanon Emergency Hoepital Has 125 Cases of Influenza An urgent appeal for olunteers to work at the Lebanon Kmergency Hos pital, Seventh street and Columbia ave nue, was made today by Mrs Mnrlon L. Polak, president of the Big Sisters As soclntloii. There nre 126 Influenza and pneumonia patients at the.hospltal Only one nurse Is on duty, undergoing the terrlflc strain of caring for so many 111 persons A second nurse worked day and night until she collapsed. She Is now 111 with In fluenzn. "The Big S'stera Association today sent a dozen volunteers up to the hos pital to help In this gravo emergency," sald Mrs Polak today. 'The.i vplun - teers will carry tra)s. nnswer the tele-s phone, work In the kitchen and help care foi the sick. If we could obtain even one graduate nurse for a week it would be an immense heln "Volunteers should apply at the head quarters or the Ulg Sisters Association, 2407 North Sixteenth street by person or by telephone call The teleplione num ber is Diamond 2398-W. Conditions nt the hospital due to the lack ot nurses nnd nurses aides are truly appalling and a ready response will be the means of saving numerous lives."

Hartley, chief of the division of child h)glene of the Depart ment oj Health and Charities, today ap pealed to charitable Institutions nnd private homes 10 open their doors tq children who have been permanently or temporarily orphaned by epidemic Influ enza, These children are homeless In many Instances because their Darenttr arc ill They are healthy, but need food and attention. Many orphanages dare not take them In because of the danger of spreading the epidemic in the Institu tions. Several children taken to St. John's Day Nurserv to get medical treatment havn been found not 111, but suffering from malnutrition. Seventv children at the Southern Home for Destitute Children are stricken with the disease, and the home has appealed for one night nurse to uttend them They arc being cared for In the da)tlme by volunteers who are unable to be there at night.
