A second Assoelatrd Press dispatch ' this morning stated that the Lawson plan?, after a battle against heavy winds', landed safely at Boiling field, n(vr Washington' A i-top of three aays will be madf i Washington, a(tVr which the plant- will take a di rect course to Dayton, Ohio. Upon leaving the Ohio city, the tlrst nar' of the com ins week. It is expect ed ihat the third destination of the plane will be Ogden As Ogden has bf-on selected as a landing field for $ the plane, it is probable that gden Ites then will have their first glimpse at one of the world's largest pacsen-fter-carryinc planes While stop at Washington and Day ton will be made, it is hoped that the pbn will land here and that a stop ' of a day or so will be made. At Hot Springs. Officials of the Utah Hot Springs j stated this morning that ever effort WU be made to facilitate the landing of the planes. C. E. Ledbctter, man ager of the resort, is elated over the I possibilities and will get in communi cation with Marwn Lawson, son of the promoter, with the idea of making Ogden one of the main points of in f terest along the line of travel. !f the i need arises, a hotel -will be erected at II the springs to accommodate the pas sengern, should their trip from Ogden to san Francisco be hindered on ac count of engine I rouble or any other trouble that the planes might encoun j ter If the piano arrives at Dayton as per schedule, it should arrivt- in this) M I city next Tucesday afternoon about ;he time President Wilson and his 3' party are being entertained. This; III would be one of the features of thej v, stay of Ihe first leader of the land and I its landing here might prompt the' president to greet the crew and pas sengers in the first cross-country trip 1 over the United States, gj First Trip Across Continent. Aviation has shown wonderful de- i Telopment during the past three years; and is now out after other laurels.) President Wilson and the thousands;' of other visitors as well as residents of Ogden may have the chance to wit- ' ness me landing 01 ine piane, as h sweeps down on the landing field at ft Utah Hot Springs. It will be the first attempt to i rOSI the United Siaies continent from New York to San Francisco with passen " gers, and. if the event is successful, the life ot the game is sure to develop with the progress that has already been encountered. Marvin Lawson, son of the inventor, J Hide Hi.- city of Ogden one of the I I stopping places on the air line Young Lawson was in this city last Wednes ' day and stated that Ogden would be on the rout-- of travel. He was through J r this city the previous week on his way to Los Angeles and San Fran cisco and al that time stated that con J dltlnns at the landing field here were ig such as to warrant consideration on the part of the largo concern. Ogden on Routs. The planes will come into Ogden from the east via Omaha and Chey enne it h expected that the machines j will follow the Union Pacific tracks and that the mountains to be encoun tered b going via Denver and Salt Lake will be avoided. The climbing is , one of the chiei phases that needs de velopment in the aviation game and 'he nfW Ci.ner-rn. in selecting ihe shortest and easiest route, placed Og den on the map as one ot tWC topi between New York and San Francisco The other Mop, according 10 word re eived bv The Standard, will be mad a' Dayton, Ohio. In the first trip west, the gian craft will hav- every modern con venience for the traveler The up-tn datenegs of a modern hotel will b rivaled by the giant plane, as reading rooms, writing rooms, sleeping rooms and entertaining features will b a ailable. In du i line the air line will be es tablished and the trip from New Y'orl to San Francisco with but two topi will be made in from 3G to 40 hour; of actual flying time. A W. Lawson, the owner and one of the boosters of the enterprise ir America, is one of the pioneers ol aviation in America. He was at on time president of the Aj ro Club o! America and during the world war aided Undo Sam considerably The field at Ctah Hot Springs Is ir tiptop shape and the planes will en counter little difficulty in landing 'here Young Lawson stated last week that the field would compare favor ably with any in the United States. Manager Ledbctter of the Utah Hot Springs Is eagerly awaiting fur ther reports concerning the plane. in) . R. HEVWOOD IS lit IHEC1PH FOB MAYOR The political news of today is the announcement that A.

INFLUENZA WARNING IS ISSUED By THE flUIHITIES The influenza epidemic which caused 5 thousands of deaths in the I nite,j States 1 last season, and which crippled bu In practically Ccry nook and corner of I the I'nlted Statc. das again started In c the east. Every precaution is being ta- c ken In an attempt to cheek the disease I and it Is expected that citizens will riid the public health officials In that work. C In Utah last year thousands of people f were confined to their beds for weeks C with the malady and business was ham- C pered for more than four months, r Schools were closed, theatres, flahces and C other phases of amusement were dlscon- v tmucd. and every step taken to prevent U the spread of the disease. n This season, with the disease ajrain c making Its appcrance. the fnited Slates ll Rovernment has sent out circulars to the n various health departments of the eoun- e try asking: that the health officials and e citizens co-op-rnto In Checking another An Official Statement? The official bulletin says: Will the flu return? Authoritative statement issued bv the rj, g, public health Ben l i Probably, but by no means certainly, i here will he a recurrence of the influ enza epidemic this year. Indications are, that should it occur, it will not be as severe as the pandem ic of the previous winter. City officials state and city boards of health, should be prepared in the event of a recurrence. 1 lu- fact that a previous attack brings immunity in a certain percent age of cases .should allay fe.ir on the part of those afilictcd in the previous epidemic. Iufluenza is spread by direct and in direct contact. It is not yet certain that the grrni has been isolated or discovered and as a consequence there is yet no posi tive preventive, except the enforce raent of rigid rules of sanitation und the avoidance of personal contact. A close relation between the influ enza pandemic and the constantly in creasinc; pneumonia mortality rate pri or to the fall of 1918 is recognized. It is now believed that the disease was pretty widely disseminated throughout the country before it was recognized in its epidemic slate. This failure to recognize the early cases ap pears to have largely been due to the fact that ever inter si iras ihen cen Hi' d on the war. Above are the important laets. devel oped by the I nil ed Slates public h iltfl a . j s3l 1.! IMIffl ! service after a careful survey and In vestigation of ihe influenza pandemic of 1918-19. carried on in every state and important city, and even in for eign countries. No one of the many experts of the service would make a more positive forecast of the all-important question, will there be a recurrence' All agreed, however, that a recurrence was not un likely, and in the face of the known facts, that It would be wise to be pre pared, more with a view of being on the safe side than actually anticipating danger The following excerpts from the gov ernment report are published for the benefit of the public and health offi cers in the hope that this v. ill serve to set at rest the dailv publication in the newspapers of statements, which on one hand are calculated to lull the pub lic into a sense of false security and on the other to unduly cause alarm Contrary to the opinion expressed i frequently during the early weeks of last year's pandemic by a number of observers, the studies of the U. S. pub lic health service indicate that the epi demic was not a fresh importation from abroad Careful study of the tnortalitv statistics of the United States shows that there were a num ber of extensive though mild forerun ners of the pandemic during the pre vious three or four years. In Chicago snd New York in the winter of 1915 1C for example, there were sufficiently K"oll marked to occasion considerable iublic momment at the lime, leadngi n the latter city, to a well organized! 'Don't spit, don't sneeze" campaign! m the part of the health authorities, rhe reports of the U S public health ' iervlce of January, 1916. show influ , nza to be epidemic in twenty two j1 itates, including practically all sec-ij ions of the United States. The epi-l: lemic was generally of a mild type and las since been almost forgotten. It iccasioned, however, a noticeable in- ' Tease in the recorded death rate from meuinonia. In the spring of 1918 there was an ither sharp rise in the mortality rateM rom pneumonia. In the larger cities if the Atlantic seaboard these in- ' reases occurred during January, Feb uary and March. In the rest of the ountry, especially the central and ' western states, the increases occurred D April, a month during wihch pneu- j nonia mortality is generally on the de- 1 line This increase was sufficient to) adicate a strong departure from the. ormal The increased mortality rate xtended Into May and in some areas ven longer l l occurrence ha3, It Is believed, . .I unite significance in relation to I i It influenza epidemic. In the United 1 31 i In the spline of 1918. a number! ol .Minite local outbreaks of Influenza jj were observed: thus in Fort Ogle-j ( thorpe, near Chattanooga, Tenn., in March; in Chicago during March; in' San Quentin prison, California, in April, October and November. At Camp Fun ton recurrent outbreaks of pneu- 6 monla were observed in March April v and May of 1918, and were definitely ( associated with coincident epidemics r of a mild type of Influenza 0 The rhe in mortality from pneumo- . nia. this very similar type of disease, H In the sprlnc of 1918 is so sudden, soin marked and so general throughout the 0 United States as to ;olnt very clearly , to a definite relation. Everything in- n dlcatea that the increased mortnln , Irom pneumonia in March and April of 1918 was the consequence of a begin- j, r.ing and large! unnoticed epidemic of n influenza, the beginning in this coun h try of the pandemic which developed t; in the autumn of that year. ?i In the British cities the epidemic ;i manifested three distinct waves the l lirst and slightest in point of mortal ity occurring in June and July, the w recond and most severe in November, -n ihe third in February and March. Data 0 which need not be cited here in de- tl tail Indicate that the course of the Ci ipidemic In western Europe generally n was similar In cities of India the se- ti ciuence was similar, but the mortality s rar greater. In the I'nlted States the n epidemic developed more largely In a n :ingle wave during September, OctO- n ber and November. If, however, the h epidemic already mentioned as occir nnir In tho spring bo considered the first phase and the explosive outbreak of the autumn the second, a third phase of recrudescence is quite evi dent in many areas In general. 11 v inter recrudescence was less marked in those cities which suffered most severely In the autumn epidemic The prevalence of a serious epldt ! lie of influenza was first recognized in and around Boston in September ol 3918. Within about two weeks II was general in the Atlantic seaboard, de- eloping a little later among cities fur ther west. Rural districts were usual ly attacked somewhat later than larce cities in the same sections. In the cities east of the line of Ihe Appalachians the excess mortalitj from pneumonia and influenza during the weeks ended September 14, 191S, to March 1, 1919 was approximately ;6 per 1,000; In cities between the Rock mountains and the Appalach ians, 4 35: and in those of the Pacilic coast, 5.5 ') per 1,000 Notwithstanding this general geo graphic relation, there are notably wide differences in the mortality rat -Of individual cities in ihe same sec lion, even between cities close togeth er, differences which are not as yt explained on the basis of climate, den sity of population, character of pre ventive measures exercised, or auy other determined environmental fac tor. More details can be given only the briefest mention here In order to se cure reliable statistics of morbidity the public health service has made special house-to-houso surveys in a number of localities, ascertaining 'lie rumber ol persons affected, the dates jf onse-t. and a few other simple fai tfi aaci urataly numerated groups repre sentative of the general population. I'artlal analysis of the results ol th-e Airveys in eight localities, giving an iggregate of 112,958 persons can vassed, shows the following as the hief facts of interest: The percentage of the population at ackeel varied from 15 per cent in LiOUlsvlUe to 53.3 per cent in San An onio. Texas, the aggregate for the hole group being about 28 per cent, rhis agrees with scattered observa 10ns in the first phase of the 1889-90 epidemic, when the attack rate seems o have varied within about these Smits. The case incidence was found to he inlfonnly highest In children from 5 0 14 years old, and progressive! low :r in each higher age group It was illghtly higher in females than 'n! nales of corresponding age; usually ligher in the white than the colored topulation The. ratio of pneumonia cases to total lopulalion varied from 6.3 cases per 1000 n SparlnnburK. S C to 21.6 per 1000 In he smaller towns of Maryland. The neumon!a rate showed litlle correlation vlth the Influenza attuck rate. The ratio of deaths to population var ed from 1.9 per 1000 In Spartanhurcr to R In Maryland towns. The death rate vas by no means parallel to the Influ ma attack rate, but was closely cor elated with the pncumonl rate. In ther words, the case fatality rate ot neumonla tended to he fairly constant, round 30 per cent. The death rate wis otnbly hifrh in children under one yar Id, in adults from 20 to 40. und in per oii.s over 60, hifiher in males thon in fc lales of comparable nccs: higher among ic whites than the colon I Concerning the Important question of nmunlty conferred by an attuck of ln uensa, the evidence Is not conclusive, s.it there is reason In believe that an at irk durlnp the earlier staqcs of ihe pldemlc confers a considerable, but not bsoluto immunity in the later out reaks. in Rcneral the pandemic of influenza as lagejy similar to that of 1889-1890 1 Its development, first a mild form, ter In a severe world-wide epidemic, in le rapidity of Its spread and its hli;h lse incidence. It has. however. le. r Dtably different In a much hisher mor ilit.v, especially among young adults, uch evidence as has been gathered con rni.s the conclusion previously leached iat It Is transnutlert directly und Indl ctly by contnci. Ii appear probable, owever, that the Infection was already 8HV wldelv disseminated in this country some time before a serious epidemic was rec ognized Despite the fact that there I still some uncertainly as to the nature of the micro organism causing pandemic Influenza, onu thing Is certain, that the disease Is com municable from person to person More over. Judging from experience In other diseases, it is probable that the germs, whatever its nature, is carried about not only by those who are III with Influenza, but by persons who may be entirely well. Everything which lncrca ses personal con tact, therefore, should be regarded as a factor in spreading influenza. Much was heard last winter of the uo of face masks. Though tho use of suit ably constructed masks will reduce thb Interchange of respiratory germs through inhalation it must be remem bered that there are many other paths by which such germs are transmitted from person to person. Soiled han Is, common drinking cups. lmproperl cleaned eating and drinking utensils !n restaurants, soda fountains, etc. roller' towels, infected food these are only a few of the commpn vehicles of gcrro transmission. The use of face masks ap pears to make people neglect these other paths of infection, and so the use ot face masks has not been attended with the success predicted by them. If wa would be more successful In combating Influenza greater attention must be pain to the factors just enumerated The question of most practical and Im- m mediate Interest Is the probability ol recurrence in the near future. Recur- 'j i i A n BCM are characteristic of influenza ept- ll! . I 1 demies; and the history of th last pan- , R. j V li mlc and previous ones would seem 'O ' iS, h point to the conclusion that this one has not yet run its full course.
