Gettysburg Board of Health
Working Hard to Overcome
Spanish Influenza Epidemic
Gettysburg, Pa., Oct. 14.—The
local board of health is taking rigid
steps to prevent, if possible, any
spread of Spanish influenza through
out the town. While the conditions
in the town are not yet alarming, all
steps are being taken that would
help to stay the disease In Its course.
Although almost twc\ hundred cases
are known to 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 during the
past two weeks, during which time
one hundred and twenty-four of the
boys died, has made the citizens use
every precaution to prevent conta
The disease nt 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 he
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
was taken:
"To recall Miss Kate Brlel, the
civic nurse, from Xavier Hall Hos
pital, where she was allowed to go
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.
"To supply needed articles for sick
in the homes, and to help furnish
the emergency hospital, if needed.
"To instruct the people of the
community regarding the necessity
for every care and immediate atten
tention in case they show the first
signs of influenza."
Liverpool, Pa., Oct. 4.—At a spe
cial meeting of the local board of
health it was decided to keep

Old Carlisle Industry
Goes Out of Business
Carlisle, Pa,, Oct. 14.—Because of
the scarcity of labor, trouble in se
curing materials and other war time
problems, the stockholders of the E.
J. Gardner Axle and Machine Com
pany, one of the oldest local indus
tries, have decided upon dissolution
and steps were taken to-day to put
the plan in force.
The plant was founded in 1883 by
the late Franklin Gardner and sev
eral changes in ownership took place.
It manufactured axles and other steel
products and had a considerable
trade. At one time employing up
wards of 100 persons, the force in
the past few months has been 40 and
all of these will be taken care of at
local industries on war work.
By a peculiar provision in the deed
for the land on which the plant is
located it must be used tor manu
facturing purposes and the plant will
probably be leased.

Misled on U-Boat War,
Bernhard Now Says
Copenhagen. 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 al
Washington in 1916 and 1917, the
writer says:
"if we had known., that President
Wilson had been continually re
quested to uct as peace mediator and
even that specified conditions had
been submitted, our action would
have beeh 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."

Appeal Issued to Help Fight
Influenza, Which Is Gain
ing Ground in State
A joint appeal signe4 by the Gov
ernor and other officers active in the I
state's campaign against influenza '
and calling upon everyone to give j
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 i
reached such alarming proportions |
and is increasing so rapidly that we |
feel it our duty to call 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 j
thousand persons have sickenjed and
each day records a higher number
of 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 rate j
of five per cent, of the cases has '
been reported.
"The Commissioner of Health of j
that commonwealth advises us that
except in Boston and vicinity where 1
the disease lirrst broke out the num- I
ber of new case* continues to equal j
the high water mark.
"We have no grounds to expect :
an early abatement of the epidemic;
on the other hand all reports from '
afflicted districts indicate that con- I
ditions will become worse before i
they become better.
"The great anthracite and bitumi
nous coal fields, the populous in
dustrial and shipbuilding centA-s
teeming as never before with thou
sands upon thousands of workers are '
alike crippled in their output and j
the gravity of the menace to our !
continued, output of munitions and !
ships is very great, We must save
Pennsylvania's citizens. We must I
win the war.
"To deal with the situation the ;
State Department of Health has di
vided the Commonwealth into nine- I
teen districts, each under supervis- j
ing medical and nursing officers re- |
porting to the acting commissioner
and with the help of all the forces i
of the Adjutant General of the Com- !
monwealth and the use of all state i
property under his control has as
sisted in establishing sixtv-four'
emergency hospitals in those dis- i
tricts most affected. The depart- I
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 I
the New England Btates 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 gome
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
homes and the same conditions pre
vail practically all hospitals, both
those long established and those
hastily improvised for the emer- I
geney. Even the dead in the popu- i
lous centers lie too long unburied I
and the receiving vaults and morgues ;
are more crowded than the hospi- I
"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 natfon and calamity
to our people can only be averted
by ifnited 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
"We call upon the clergy, the
press, educators, teachers and all
those molding public opinion to
bring to the hearts and minds of
our people the gravity and necessity
of this appeal."
