While the jin the town are not yet alarming, all I steps are being taken that would i help to stay the disease in its course. I Although almost two hundred cases at-e known }o exist in town, only three deaths have as yet been report ed. The disease has spread much more rapidly in some of the rural districts of the county than it has in town and this, together with the conditions at Camp Colt drying the past two weeks, during which time one hundred, and twenty-fouif of the boys died, has made the citizens use I every precaution to prevent conta gion. | The disease at the camp is appar ently abating, seemingly to have run its course, and few new cases are being reported. The Methodist Church has been offered to the board of health to be used as a hospital, the board accept ing the offer In case it becomes nec essary. At the meeting of the board of health Friday evening, at which was present Dr. Phillips, of the State ; Department of Health, this action 'wa s taken: i "To recall Miss Kate Briel, the j civic nurse, from Xavier Hall Hos : pital, where she was allowed to go i during the height of the epidemic at Camp Colt. | "To call for volunteers, either practical nurses or others who are (willing to help out in an emergency, to be instructed by Miss Briel. : "To hold the Methodist Church in readiness for an emergency hospital (where many of the patients could be taken and cared for.

George Bernhard. : writing in the Berlin Vossische Zei | tung, says that the submarine war fare would never have been pro claimed if the German people had not been deceived and misled. Dis cussing the peace steps taken at Washington in 1916 and 1917, the wfiter says: "If we had known tha* President ' Wilson had been continually re [ quested to act as peace mediator and even that specified conditions had been submitted, our action would have been different. Had we known that at the moment unrestricted sub marine warfare was declared Presi dent Wilson had agreed to accept the role of mediator, the German people, in the great majority, would never have tolerated a policy which brought upon them the reputation of being double-tongued." All this, says Bernhard. goes far toward making President Wilson's sharp words understandable. "It also explains," he concludes, "Ambassador Gerard's unmeasured speech, when one recalls that the German Government permitted him to make a friendly address in the presence of high officials at the very moment when the submarine cam paign was already decided upon." j PV —joysuiuuaixa upM s,IIN:>K asfl J GOVERNOR ASKS ALL TO ASSIST Appeal Issued to Help Fight Influenza, Which Is Gain ing Ground in State A joint appeal signed by the Gov ernor and other officers active in the state's campaign against influenza and calling upon everyone to give free service to the sufferers was is sued last night from the Capitol. It sets forth the situation as it existed at that time and to-day officials said that they saw no change. The proclamation says: "The epidemic of influenza now sweeping through Pennsylvania has reached such alarming proportions and is increasing so rapidly that tl'e feci it our duty to cafl public atten tion to the danger which threatens the entire Commonwealth, and to appeal for aid to all citizens, both men and women. "Up to the present time approxi mately two hundred and seventy-five thousand persons have sickened and each day records a higher number o L new cases than the day before. "In Massachusetts where the epi demic started earlier than here, ten per cent, of the whole population have been affected and a death rale of five per cent, of the cuses has been reported. "The Commissioner of Health of that commonwealth advises us that except in Boston and vicinity where the disease firrst broke out the num ber of new cases continues to equal the high water mark. "We have no grounds to expect an early abatement of the epidemic; on the other hand all reports from affilcted districts indicate ' that con ditions will become worse before they become better. "The great anthracite and bitumi. nous coal fields, the populous in dustrial and shipbuilding centers teeming as never before with thou sands upon thousands of workers are alike crippled in their output and the gravity of the menace to our continued output of munitions and ships is very great. We must save Pennsylvania's citizens. We must win the war. "To deal with the situation the State Department of Health has di vided the Commonwealth into nine teen districts, each under supervis ing medical and nursing officers re porting to the acting commissioner and with the help of all the forces of the Adjutant General of the Com monwealth and the use of all state property under his control has as sisted in establishing sixty-four emergency hospitals in those dis tricts most affected. The depart ment has also enlisted the active co operation of the Red Cross and the Council of National Defense and Committee of Public Safety and all other relief organizations, but the demand for workers still far ex ceeds the supply. One-fourth of Pennsylvania's doctors and one-third of her nurses are serving under the colors, the first call for help from the Xew England states further di minished the supply and similar conditions in neighboring states ren der it Impossible for them to give us help. "Notwithstanding all efforts which have been made the sick in some places may lie for days without a physician's attendance. There is a most distressing lack of nursing help for tending the sick at their own I homes and the same conditions pre vail practically all hospitals, both ! those long established and those hastily improvised for the emer gency. Even the dead in the popu lous centers lie too long unburied and the receiving vaults and morgues are more crowded than the hospi tals. "Citizens of Pennsylvania, the call for immediate personal service is imperative. The only solution of the problem is by free community serv ice, tending the sick, feeding the hungry and bearing the burdens of the weak. "Both men and women are need ed and should report for duty to their local health authorities or Red Cross chapter. "Disaster to the essential war industries of the nation and calamity to our people can only be averted by united and vigorous action. Each community should as far as pos sible finance its own relief require ments, calling for aid from the Commonwealth or from state or na tional relief organizations only when 'needful, thus equalizing the bur den. "We call upon- the clergy, the press, educators, teachers and all those molding public opinion to bring tij the hearts and minds of our people the gravity and necessity of this appeal." The signers are Martin G.-Brum baugh, Governor of Pennsylvania; B Franklin Royer, Acting Commis sioner of Health; Charles Scott, Jr., division manager, Pennsylvania- Delaware division, the American Red Cross; George Wharton Pepper, chairman,' Pennsylvania Council of National Defense and Committee of Public Safety.'
