Common Colds Highly Catching—Im portance of Suitable Clothing—Cculd Save 100,000 Lives. Washington, D.

Although the worst of the epidemic is over, there will continue to be a large number of scattered eases, many of them mild and unrecognized, which will be danger spots to be guarded against." The Surgeon General likened the present situation to that aft^r a great fire, saying, "No fire chief who j understands his business stops playing the hose on the charred debris as goon j as the flames and visible fire have dis- | appeared. On the contrary, he con- ; tlnues the water for hours and even days, for he knows that there is dan ger of the fire rekindling from smol dering embers." "Then you fear another outbreak of Influenza?" he was asked. "Not neces sarily another large epidemic," said tl>e Surgeon GeneraL "but unless the peîiptF~T«tm to realize the seriousness of the danger they will he compelled to pay a heavy death toll from pneumo nia and other respiratory diseases. v ' Common Colds Highly Catching. "It Is encouraging to observe that people are beginning to learn that or dinary coughs and colds are highly catching and are spread from person to person by means of droplets of germ laden mucus.
