The influenza mask has made its
appearance in Phoenix.
Following the example of peop.e
in numerous other cities, several
residents of this city yesterday
went on the streets with cloth pro
tectors over their nostrils and
mouth as a preventive against con
tracting germs of the Spanish in
fluenza so prevalent in this city
and which are most readily ac
quired through the breathing.
The first to wear the masks yes
terday on the streets was a man
and woman who were in a motor
car. Over the lower half of the face
of each was a cloth mask that
came down below the chin and was
fastened behind the head.
People turned to look and to re
mark, but the remark was that
they would do the same. Later oth
ers were seen with the cloth mask
over the lower part of their faces.
The influenza mask , is easily
made. The most approved one is
of several layers of coarse cheese
cloth, but some of the masks seen
on the street yesterday were mere
ly handkerchiefs. The cheese cloth
mask of several thicknesses is the
best and most serviceable mask
and is the one the doctors recom
mend. People who have tried them,
find that there is no inconvenience
in talkinq or breathing.
The influenza mask wearers were
pioneers yesterday but without a
doubt, it will be a common sight
by today.

Some of the fiercest engagements of
the present war have been fought on

the Hun seems to like that day for a

Sixty-Five Cases At Two
Emergency Hospitals, Six
Being Received Friday;
State Reports Serious
Varying greatly from day to day, the
exact status of the influenza epidemic
in Phoenix is not readily ascertained.
On Thursday 102 cases were reported
to the state health department from
the city alone, but of these only 10
wrere sent to the emergency hospitals.
At that time the city health depart
ment had listed a total of 392 cases
in Phoenix during the epidemic.
No figures were available last night
as tn the increase, if any, of the cases
during the day, but only six cases had
been sent to the hospitals during the
day, it is stated. These were divided
equally between the emergency hos
pital and the auxiliary hospital at St.
Joseph's. There was a total of 65 cases
in the two hospitals last night, many
of whom came from outlying districts.
Phoenix is Fortunate -
It is true that Phoenix is faring
much better than other districts of the
state, and this is stated to be due to
the strict precautions which have been
observed here.
Influenza reports to the state health
department for the past five days from
all over the state seem to indicate that
the epidemic, taking the state as a
whole, is increasing, while in the dis

Of Food Administration In
Conduct Of Bakery AVere
Found In
Violation of the rules and regulations
of the federal food administration,
brought about, It is Insisted, through
the persistent acts of an employe, yes
terday caused the Phoenix Bakery of
this city, owned by Edward Eisele, to
come under the ban of the federal food
administration of Atizona in na uncer
tain manner.
As a result of the decision in this
case, which received the approval of
the federal food administration at.
Washington, Edward Eisele will be per
mitted to pay $1,000 to war charities.
He also will be compelled, to operate
his bakery under the supervision of a
representative of the food administra
tion. To Use Extra Substitute
For the next three months the bak
ery will be forced to use in the manu
facture of bread en extra quantity of
substitute, it is stated.
This decision by the food adminis
tration follows an investigation made
by C. J. Buckingham, food adminis
trator for Maricopa county, and his as
sistant, C. Fred Brackett, under the di
rection of P. J. Biordan, federal food
administrator for Arizona. The results
of this investigation were forwarded to
the state food administration head
quarters for approval and also to the
Washington headquarters of the na
tional federal food administration.
Incorrect Reports
According to a report made by Dr.
Jacobs, a special investigator sent to
this city to look into this particular
case, the regulations laid down by the
food administration were entirely dis
regarded in this bakery. No attention
was paid to the rule as to the use of
substitute in making bread, it is paid,
and also the weekly reports from that
bakery were incorrectly made. It is
stated that the weekly reports from
the Phoenix bakery were falsified for
16 consecutive weeks. For a straight
period of ten days this bakery manu
factured bread from wheat flour en
tirely, the charges are said to state.
Besides the disregard for rules in the
manufacture of bread, it is stated that
a percentage ef sugar, larger than per
mitted by the federal food administra
tion, was used in making other bakery
Accuses Employe
Because of the advantage which this
bakery had secured over other bakeries
while useing a less amount of substi
tute in making bakery products and
thus being able to furnish a more de
sirable article, it was decided by the
food administration to compel this
bakery for a period of 90 days to use an
extra amount of substitute in an effort
to equalize this advantage secured over
the competitors.
The proprietor of the Thoenix Bak
ery, it is understood, lays his troubles
in this instance to an employe who
now has been discharged. It is the
opinion of Mr. Eisele that there will
be no further difficulty in the conduct
of his bakcrj'.
