this morning at 10 o'clock at the office
of the Board of Affairs and passed a
reslation closing theatres, pool rooms,
soda fountains and other places where
people congregate and abandoning all
public meetings until further notice.
It was emphasized at the meeting
this mcfning that the public should
not become alarmed, as the stringent
orders weer taken merely as a preventative
meat/ire, aiming to prevent the
very serious outbreak of the malady
which-is now prevalent in many of
the eastern cities. "An ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure" was
urged by many of the physicians in
discussing the local situation.
The meeting was opened with Mayon
Bowen presiding and the following attending:
Commissioners J. Walter
Barnes. A. L. Lehman. Ira L- Smith,
County Health Physician L. N. Yost,
city Health Physician H. L. Criss, Dr.
L. B. Boyers. Dr. C. W. Waddell. Dr.
C. L. Holland, "Dr. Trach. Dr. Jesse
Jamison, O. G. Wilson, super*-tenfent
of schools. H. S. Lively, chairman of
the Marion County Liberty Loan committee.
C. W. Evans, secretary of the
Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. L. N. Yost, county health physician,
was the first speaker and told of
the outbreak of the malady in Spain
where thirty per cent, of the people
were affected. The first case was
brought to New York city August 12.
It was the opinion of Dr. Yost that
"now Is the time to act" and that we
should "not wait until everyone is
sneezing and down sick." He expressed
himself as being in favor of closing
the theatres and other public places,
excepting the schools, and abandoning
public gatherings. It was his opinion
that the big meeting of miners
should not be held in this city Sun- |
day as it would likely spread the mal- j
ady, and thus cripple the production ;
of1 coal, which he believed was far j

Mass Meetings in City and !
County Have Been Called
Tbe Liberty Loan meeting scheduled
to be held at the Grand on Wednesday:
evening of this week to be addressed
by Lieutenant Cadderhead, of Canada,
has been called off by the Liberty
Loan coxnmitte owing to the fact that
all publi cmeeting., have been forbidden
by the city officials as a precaution
against the spread of tfce i-iflcenza.
It is altogether probable that
the big .sari le and celebrations scheduled
for Sunday afternoon will be
called off also as county officials deem
it unwise at this time to hold this celebration.
The meetings scheduled to be held
in communities throughout the county
for tonight and other nights during
the week have been called oft indefinitely
also. Other plans for the boosting
of the loan in city and county districts
will be devised and announced
later by the committees.
A big booster meeting was held at
the Baltimore and Ohio round shops
at noon when approximately 200 employes
of the B. and O. shops and
round house assembled to hear a four
minute talk on the Liberty loan issue.
County Chairman Henry S. Lively
onrft a tallr nnH T.tpntprnnt i
Carl Johnston, a 17. S. Marine, also
spoke at this meeting. The employes
ot the B. and O. have already raised
over $5,000 for the loan and promise
to do much better berore the time is
over. City Commissioner Ira L. Smith
also spoke at this meeting.
This evening a similar meeting will
be held at the Monongah felass works
at five o'clock and Chairman Lively
and Marine Johnston will also address
this meeting.
A splendid meeting was held at
Farmington Sunday afternoon when
Rev. Clarence D. Mitchell and Mrs.
Kemble "White addressed citizens of
that community in regard to the support
of the Liberty bond issue. The
meeting was held in the new school
auditorium and the auditorium was
packed to capacity. W. E. Maple,
