PRESIDENT IS
SOMEjETTER
Slight Improvement Reported in
Wilson's Condition by
Dr. Grayson.
ILLNESS NOT CRITICAL
Nervous Exhaustion Complicated With
Weakness of Digestive Organs and
Effects of Influenza Have Weak
ened Powers of Resistance.
Washington, Oct. 6.—The favor
able trend of President Wilson's
condition continues, and there
were indications that those at
tending him thought he might be
definitely on the road to recovery.
After the best night's sleep he
has had since he was taken ill, the
President was in such good spirits
that Rear Admiral Grayson, his
personal physician, had difficulty
in persuading him to remain in
bed. The physician indicated he
would not permit the President to
get on his feet until the change in
his condition was more decisive.
Washington, Oct. 4.—Reports from
the bedside of President Wilson,
whose condition had been less favor
able. indicated some little change for
the better. Again the President was
kept in bed with physicians in con
stant attendance upon him.
There was another consultation of
physicians, and immediate members
of the President's family came to the
White House to be near him.
Although reticent about details of
the condition of their patient', those
who attended him indicated that his
ailment had not yet clearly revealed
the extent of its inroads upon his sys
tem, and that some days might be re
quired to disclose its full effects.
Nervous exhaustion of which he is
suffering, complicated with his long
standing weakness of the digestive
organs and a lingering touch of last
spring's attack of influenza, the doc
tors say, have considerably weakened
the President's powers of resistance.
For a man of his years, however,
Mr. Wilson's general physical system
is said to be in good condition to with
stand the combined attack against
which he now is lighting. There have
been no intimations of depleted heart
action and the President's mind is
declared by his physicians to be so
alert that they have had considerable
difficulty in keeping his attention di
verted from the affairs of his office.
The prohibition against official acts
of any kind, modified several days ago
long enough to permit him to sign a
few bills and nominations, has been
rigidly imposed by Dr. Grayson.
In enforcing their rest prescription
the physicians attending the Presi
dent are particularly concerned about
his sleeplessness. This is understood
to be connected with after effects of
the influenza attack.
Secluded in hi6 room in the White
House the President is permitted to
see only members of his family and
virtually the only source of public in
formation regarding his illness has
been the brief official bulletins issued
by Dr. Grayson.
A flood of messages of sympathy
has reached the White House and
many prominent officials, diplomats
and others called to express their
solicitude.

HIGHER SUGAR COST CERTAIN
Held to Be Sure Unless Government
Takes Some Action.
Washington, Oct. 4.—Told by George
A. Zabriskie, president of the Sugar
Equalization board, that it was prac
tically certain that unless some legis
lative action .was taken immediately
sugar prices would increase after Jan
uary 1, the senate committee investi
gating the sugar shortage requested
W. A. Glasgow, counsel for the Food
administration, to formulate legisla
tion designed to alleviate the situation
and to make possible negotiations for
purchasing the 1920 Cuban sugar crop.

known as the 'progressive farmers and
household union of America,' estab

groes together for the killing of white
people."
