City Will Take Care of Necessitous
Victims of
But This Time There Does
Not Seem to Be Much
A number of cases -where whole
families in the city are down with the
j influenza and are without fuel or food '
l haw come to the attention of the citT I
board of affairs and. the Associated. I
Charities organization. I
In order to take care of this situation
Mayor Bowen this morning held I
a conference with other members of I
the board. City Health Physician H. L. [
Criss and Miss Margaret McKinney,
secretary of the Associated Charities,
and steps -were taken to relieve the .
situation and to care for any more '
such cases that might develop.
After hearing the reports of Dr.
Criss and Miss McKinney the board
authorized Miss McKinney to consult
with Miss Elizabeth Yoak, the Red
Cross nurse, who is employed by the
city and the Public Health ."Cursing
Service, and to make such recommendations
as they see fit to the board
and steps would at once be taken tcr
provide fuel, food and whatever care
is necessary in these charity cases.
It "was stated at the meeting that
this action was not to be interpreted
as in any manner an interfering with
the work of the Red Cross in this situation,
but is merely to provide help
for charity cases which come necessarily
under the city's jurisdiction.
One case was reported to. JVIayor
Bowen from several different sources
of a house on the East .side in which
two families are demiinled in which
there were some ten or twelve cases
of influenza and according to these
reports there was no one to care for
the sick and that they were without
fnel and food. This case was.ordered
investigated at once and whatever is
necessary will be put up by the city.
Other similar cases have been reported
while a number of cases which
were reported to City Health Pbysi- .
ciaa Criss were found to be merely
U?C9 U1 WU1V.U "-"UC4 ?U1" I
ins to impose on the board in order to
receive assistance when they wen>
able to see that only the actually needy
are given charity.
Dr. Criss is endeavoring to keep a
close tab on the influenza situation
and his office assistant Miss Gladys
Grimes, calls up the physicians daily
to ascertain the developments.
Monday 24 out of 27 physicians in
the city reported a total of 44 cases
and on Sunday a total of 52 cases
were reported by the same number of
"Weather conditions, according to
Dr. Criss. are helping to spread the
contagion and he urges that people be
careful to properly clothe themselves
so as not to be liable to take cold and
thus contract the malady.
According to Dr. Criss there is nrob- ,
ably not so much pneumonia development
among the new cases as -was the
case some time ago and the cases
seem to be of a somewhat milder
