"In the more than three thousand years that plague has been known, it has been attributed variously to evil spirits, divine wrath, errors of diet, noxious winds. and astronomical phenomena, but today the recognition of plague aH a rodent disease has in sured its eradication from cities and urban communities." said 1 r. Rupert Rluo, surgeon-general of the I'nited States public health service in an address before the American Society of Tropical Medicine here today, j Speaking upon the subject of , "Plague Preventive Measures, Their Development and Present Status," j Dr. Rlue pointed out that "In any .event anti-plague measures are dif ficult and expensive, but they pay I not only from health but from com- Imercial standpoints." "Rat-proofing," said Dr. Hlue, "is Ithe best and most permanent "anli plague measure, bit it is not practi cally adapted to most places outside the I'nited States. In the I'nited States and its possessions the thor oughness of enforcement of this mea sure Is responsible in large part for the continued freedom of San Fran cisco and the bay cities from the .infection, for the decline and cessa tion of the infection in Porto Rico, 1 lor the continued practical' freedom of the Philippine Islands from plague, and for the practical eradi cation of the disease from New Or leans." The address reviewed the history of plague preventive mea sures and considered the legal and technical necessities for the destruc tion of rodent ft. their exclusion from human habitations. and permanent J methods of preventing the recurrence of the disease. j In the discussion of the paper .which followed, AssisMnt Surgeon leneral W. C. Him kor of the I'nitoil States public health service, gave a resume of the work which has been performed under his direction in the of New Orleans since July last, pointed out that from that date to May 1.1. :M.-12 buildings, over 1" per cent cf the total number in the total number ill the city, had been i rat -proofed. 3.1. " nuisances had been .abated, and 3.1", oml rodents captured in traps. He estimated that count ling those buildings which were al I ready rat -proof, there were only I about IT.a'.'ii buildings in Now Orleans in which rat-proofing iemained to be completed. The rodent popula tion, according to Dr. Rucker. his Ibeen reduced at least Ml per rent, j "So far as human beings are con- corned. Now Orleans has been plag le ; f roe since October 4. last." said Dr. .Rucker. "It is true that plague rats have boon found as recently as May 1 1 7. but the great diminution in the rodent population and the abolition of 'rodent harboring places will eventu ally control the disease. Some op- ! position to the enforcement of the rat -proofing ordinances has been met in certain quarters,-' said Dr. Rucker. j "but inasmuch as both the federal 'courts and the supreme court of the Istite have upheld the validity of 'those ordinances, they wi!l lie com pletely enforced to the end that Now Orleans may become entirely rat proof, a veritable 'City Sanitary.-'- shown at the Arizona Theater tonight for the last time. It is bubbling over like the fountain of youth with laughter and romance and as Klsie Janis wrote "The Caprices of lKtty" herself, she wove into the story all the situations and clever lit tle "stunts" that have made for this enchanting comedienne her successes.

It is specially proud, however, of having the care of some bears and indiari hlackbuck which were the ir.astots of regiments now gaming distinction at the front.
