HEALTH AUTHORITIES MANNING
TO MEET igirFLU” OUTBREAK
CHICAGO, Dec. 2. — Plans for
combatting another influenza epi
demic which is expected to sweep
the country in 1919 will be consid
ered by health authorities from all
parts of the United States, Canada
and South America at the forty
sixth annual convention of the
American public health association
which opens here Dec. 9.
Members of the association say
that all the influenza epidemics
since 1729 have been recurrent
for from two to three years after
the initial outbreak. For this rea
son leading authorities feel con
vinced that the visitation of 1918
will be repeated in 1919 and prob
ably in 1920. Also it is pointed
out that in previous epidemics the
second and third outbreaks have
been more virulent and attended by
a higher mortality rate than were
the initial manifestations.
It was early in 1918, according
to Dr. W. A. Evans, former health
commissioner of Chicago, that the
now so-called Spanish influenza
made its apeparance in Spain. Now
Spain is having its second out
break, according to Dr. Evans,
more virulent In form and attend
ed by an alarming death rate.
During the three-day meeting
: the methods used in combatting the
1918 epidemic in the United States
will be thoroughly considered and
plans outlined for meeting any
future emergency. Among those
who will present papers and take
part in the discussion are Major
W. H. Welch of the national med
ical corps; Dr. E. C. Rosenow of
the Mayo foundation, Dr. Herman
Biggs, commissioner of the New
I York state department of health,
and Dr. A. J. McLaughlin, assistant
surgeon general of the United
j States public health service.
Besides consideration of influen
! za, many subjects of general inter
est pertaining to public health
during the reconstruction period
\ will be taken up. There will be
discussions regarding proper pre
cautions in the care of children to
reduce mortality rates, rural sani
tation, the effect of fashions on
health and the use of narcotics in
• LONDON, Nov. 30. — Conditions
necessary to the maintenance of
an effective gold standard should
be restored without delay after the
terms of peace are signed, reports a
committee headed by Lord Cun
liffe, which was appointed to con
sider currency and foreign ex
change problems after the war.
The committee said:
“Unless the machinery which
long experience has shown to be
the only effective remedy for an
adverse balance of trade and an
undue growth of credit is once j
more brought into play, there will j
Tie grave danger of a progressive
credit expansion which will result
in a foreign drain of gold menac
ing the convertibility of our issue
and so jeopardizing the interna
tional trade position of the coun
To maintain the gold standard
the committee recommended ces
sation of government borrowing as
soon as possible, establishment of
an adequate sinking fund out of
the revenues and the raising of the
Bank of England discount rates.

The whippoorwill doesn’t build a
nest. It lays two large, round eggs in
a slight depression in the ground—say
i i a cow’s track in tlxe pasture, or
even upon the top of n dead and rot

discovered the bird will carry them
away in its mouth and deposit Ihem
somewhere else, and it will do the
same thing with its young.

THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER
Oh, say, can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last
Whose stripes and bright stars, through the peril
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in
Gave proof through the night that our flag was
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the
On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence re -
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first
In full glory reflected, now shines in the stream.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
’Mid the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country they’d leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footstep s
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Oh. thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desola
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heaven-res
Praise the Power that hath made apd preserved us
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this he our motto, “In-God Is Our Trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall
O’er the land of the free and the home of the

The Whippoorwill. .
The favorite hunting ground of the ]
whippoorwill is about the edges of a i
j forest, or over the tops of the trees, |
where the big, fat “moths are to be j
found at night. It makes no noise as j
it flies, because its feathers are soft
and fluffy, but as it darts past you
sometimes it utters a sort of groan.
The nighthawk occasionally gives vent
to a loud “yawk” as it flies througli
the evening air. •
