Influenza vs. The W.ar.
The Surgeon General last night reported a total of 113,737 cases of
Spanish influenza in the army camps of the United States. Accord
ing to last officia! reports there were approximately 1,300,000 men in
these camps. This would indicate that one-tentaT- of our military ef
fectives in this country now in training are out of the fight for the
Since the United States entered the war our casualties total ap
proximately 39,000. Thus in several ?veeks disease has set our man
power back about :20? per cent more than nearly one year's fighting
in the front line has done.
The report of the Surgeon General of course does not include
civilian cases of influenza which undoubtedly exceed by a very large
degree those of the military
An army of 113,737 men is a large army and or.e which would
aid materially in paving the way to Berlin. Add to this a similar
number of men and women who form the second line of defense at
home making ammunition, building ships and helping in war work
generally and who are impaired by influenza and you have an idea
ot the ravages of the present epidemic.
?\> mention this not to alarm, but to impress upon the public
the seriousness of the disease which is slowing up our complete war
program. It may not be so serious in the number of victims claimed
but in the astonishing numbers which are temporarily taken away
from their work.
In the Districr-^f Columbia schools have been closed, as have
theaters and other places of amusement. Certain other regulations
have been made to curb the spread of influenza. It is the duty of
Cvcrv citizen to accept these regulations uncomplainingly and carry
t'sem out to the letter. It is furthermore the duty of every citizen
to o'u:?r\e the most strict health rules as they have never observed
Keep in mind-that like most infectious diseases influenza is
spread by contact infection, that is, by the actual transfer of the
active poison from one person to another. It is spread to a large
degree by sneezing and coughing at which timos the infected dis
ellare^ from the nose and throat are scattered in the air. Avoid
crowds as much as possible. Make ?*urc that you arc properly clothed,
in accordance with the year. Fr sh air is always good. Keep your
bedroom windows wide open, and secure as much sleep as possible.
Keep the digestive organs in good condition. Drink water freely.
Wash your hands frequently. Avoid common drinking cups, com
mon towels and similar utensils. When sneezing err coughing, place
your handkerchief before your nose and motith. Lse a mild
antiseptic as a nose spray or as a mouth gargle, especially if your
throat is sore or there is tendency to sneezing. If you have a "cold"
use utensils for your personal use exclusively, or if you are in con
tact with one so affected be careful not to handle utensils used by

today?one the contradiction of the!
other?are of Interest to LUe world.!
In Mr. McLean's Post o? tits city ?
the very firm asseillon is made that
"the Jong-plnnne,i centralized con
trol of all the economic forces
of the nations fighting G imany is
at last a fact."
While Mr. Curtis' Public Ledger
of Philadelphia, in an article by
its always reliable Clinton Gilbert,
states with the utmost deci--Ivenef-e
that no such a control has h? en
agreed to. and that, in fact, an
atrreenient to it Is obvlouslv oi?*? of
the steps this country will no; take.
Of the two stori"? we prefer tie
latter?not alone hocouse of i's
truthfulness, but also because it
show.? that the President is i.< t go
ing to allow his trump -?-arda to t>
taken from fiirn. ?
The President has in his posses
sion the cards which will i! vays he
"trump" at the peate tab!1?the
control of raw mat "ria Is. and the
| fact that lie has never compromised
himself at any time by enti ing into
.?iny "dama u ing"?to his pr .< <> pro
cram?agreements which might in
terfere with that program.
Had he listened and acrret-d to the
program Which Mr. McLean's paper
said he did the following important
| part of his New York speech could
; not have been uttered?or if uttered
? could not have t>een adher? d to

Listen to this part!
'?Second?No special or separate
inter??-' ot any single nation or any
group of nations can be made the
basis of any part of the settlement
which is not consistent with the
common interest of all.**
Were it necessary, of course, to
win the war the President would
readily acquiesce in su?, h an ai
ra ? geni ont as Mr. McLean's news
pap? r says has been consummated
1 it would be quite as difficult
to m; Ue the President believe such
ft thing is necessary as it is to per
le th? reqii'rcd number ot Sen
that equal suffrage, rushed to
?te but not provided for is nec
* ... y to the winning- of the war.
In other word?, tlie President be
lieves the common economic t ro
gram i.s a weapon of peace or a de
vice of peace, rather than of war.
He prefers, because his program
obviously demands it, to defer
swinging America's influence and
power to it until such time as peace
comes and the negotiations are un
Mr. Gilbert then was right when
he first wrote about th!-. nnd is still
right. And Mr. Moi ? n'a paper is
not correct because sir a an agree
ment as it says has been accom
plished would nullify and make lm
? possible one and perhaps more of the
five conditions the President laid
down In his New York speech.
The New York World finds incon
sistency in the Senate's action In
approving the national prohibition
amendment and in rejecting the
equal suffrage amendment.
Not at all. Mr. Cobb.
The prohibition amendment t%as re
garded as war legislation, as a war
necessity. The same Senate did not
attach the same significance to fhe
suffrage amendment?largely be
cause it merely made possible the vot
ing of legislatures on the suffrage
question and did not and probably
could not actually bring suffrage to
this nation before the end of the
Tn this respect, of course, this
amendment had no advantage over
the prohibition amendment. Rut in
other ways prohibition was being
achieved because of war necessity
and the expression of both Houses of
Congress was desirable becaii.se it
gave the President a clear index of
public feeling in the liquor matter and
served as a gul4e to the President
in applying power given to him in
the Food Administration and agri
cultural production legislation.
