A food map of Europe today shows j seat of governiTicii: thi little nation's
not a single country In which the fu
ture does not hold threat of serious
difficulties and only a smail part which
is not rapidly approaching the famine
point. With the exception of the
Ukraine only those countries which
have maintained marine commerce
have sufficient food supplies to meet
actual needs until next harvest, and
even in the Ukraine, with stores accu
mulated on the farms, there is famine
In the large centers of population.
Belgium and northern France, as
well as Serbia, appear on the hunger
map distinct from the rest of Europe
because they stand in a different rela
tion from the other nations to the peo
.ple of the United States. America has
for four years maintained the small
war rations of Belgium and northern
France and is already making special
efforts to care for their increased
after-the-war needs, which, with those
of Serbia, must be included in this
plan, are urgent in the extreme and
must have immediate relief. '
The gratitude of the Belgian nation
for the help America has extended to
her during - the war constitutes the
strongest appeal for us to continue our
work there. The moment the German
armies withdrew from her soil and she
was established once more in her own
first thought was to j'xpivss her gratitude-to
the Cor.nnission for Relief in
Beljrium for prosiTving the lives of
ii!l"::s of her citizens.
Germany, on the nther hand, need
not figure in surh si w.r.p for Ameri
cans because there is no present indi
cation that we shall he called on at all
to take thought for the food needs of
Germany. Germany probably can care
for her own forrd problem if she s
given access to. shipping and is enabled
to ulctrl'-ii'c food to the cities with
dense populations, which are the trou
England, Franco, the Netherlands
and Portugal, all of which have been
maintained from American supplies,
have sufficient food to meet immediate
needs, but their futnire presents seri

Spain and the ncr;!-ern neutral coun

whose ports have been open and who
have been able to draw to some degree
upon foreign supplies.
Most of Russia is already in the
throes of famine, and -40,000,000 people

Bohemia, Serbia, Roumania and
Montenegro have already reached the
famine point and are suffering a heavy j

Influenza Expected to Lurk for Months.
How to Guard Against Pneumonia.
Common Colds Highly Catching Im
portance of Suitable Clothing Could
Save 100,000 Lives.
Washington, D. C. With the subsid
ence, of the epidemic of influenza the
attention of health officers Is directed
to pneumonia, bronchitis and other
diseases of the respiratory system
which regularly cause a large number
of deaths, especially during the winter
season. . According to Rupert Blue,
Surgeon General of the United States
Public Health Service, these diseases
will be especially prevalent this win
ter unless the people are particularly
careful to obey health instructions.
"The present epidemic," said Sur
geon General Blue, "has taught by bit
ter experience how readily a condition
beginning apparently as a slight cold
may go on to pneumonia and death.
Although the worst of the epidemic is
over, there will continue to be a large
-number of scattered cases, many of
them mild and unrecognized, which
will be danger spots to be guarded
against." The Surgeon General likened
the present situation to that after a
great fire, saying, "No fire chief who
understands his business stops playing
the hose on the charred debris as soon
as the flames and visible fire have dis-
appeared. On the contrary, he con
tinues the water for hours and even
days, for he knows that there is dan
ger of the fire rekindling from smol
"Then you fear another outbreak of
Influenza?" he was asked. "Not neces
sarily another large epidemic," said
the Surgeon General, "but unless the
people learn to realize the seriousness
of the danger they will be compelled to-
pay a heavy death toll from pneumo
nia and other respiratory diseases.
Common Colds Highly Catching.
"It Is encouraging to observe that
people are beginning to learn that or
dinary coughs and cold's are highly
catchinc and. are spread from person
to person by means of droplets of
germ laden mucus. Such droplets are
sprayed into the air when careless or
ismorant people cough or sneeze witn
out covering their mouth and nose. It
is also good to know that people have
learned something about the value of
fresh air. In summer, when people
are largely out of doors, the respira
tory diseases (coughs, colds, pneumo
nia, etc.) are Infrequent; In the fall,

"Still another factor in the produc

spiratory diseases is carelessness cr ig
norance of the people regarding suit

the weather suddenly changes, sitting
In warm rooms too heavily dressed or,
what is even more common, especially
among women, dressing so lightly that

Droplet Infection Explained in Pictures.
'The Bureau of Public Health,
Treasury Department, Iras just issued
a striking poster drawn by Derryman,
the well-known Washington cartoonist.
The pester exemplifies the modern
method of health education. A few
years ago, under similar circumstances,
the health authorities would have is
sued an official dry but scientifically
accurate bulletin teaching the role of
droplet infection in the spread of re
spiratory diseases. The only ones who
would have understood the bulletin
would have been those who already
knew all about the subject. .The man

many millions who toil for their living
