WAR FOND GROWING Subscriptions and Pledges Still Coming In On Every Mail Eureka County did not go “over the top” as quickly on this drive as she has done on other war move ments, and it is probably due to the fact that personal solicitation has been practically abandoned, owing to the fear of spreading sickness. The appeal to the citizens by mail and through the Sentinel has met with a gratifying response, but not enough has been raised to meet the quota. Up to Friday noon, $923 has been collected or pledged and our quota is $1570. The time for us to raise the money has been extended and every one who has not already sent a sub scription is asked to do so as quickly as possible. The Victory Boys have pledged more than double their quota; and the Victory Girls have gone even higher, owing to the fact that there are more girls eligible to member ship. The names of subscribers will be published each week until the entire amount has been subscribed or raised, and if your name does not appear upon the list, please notify the Com mittee at once so that it can be as certained whether the name was accidentally omitted, or whether your subscription has not reached the office.

Beginning at the top of the sum mit and going south, using the old Pritchard grade, the new road fol lows the high ground and the sunny side of the hill for about two miles, coming into the old' road about half a mile above the Evans place; follow ing that and detouring again for about three-quarters of a mile at the Evans place, and then taking the road out here again on to the old grade and up on to high ground. The Commissioners are also having the old Pritchard grade repaired on the Eureka side of Pinto summit, and with these two pieces of new road construction, Pinto summit will be passable to traffic practically the year round. This work was done with Russell & Minoletti’s tractor and the county grader and the record time in which the work was completed proves the efficiency of these machines. ANNE MARTIN MARES STATEMENT Talks Before Women’s Civic League At Reno of Educa tional Results of Cam paign “We feel that we waged a victor ious campaign,” said Miss Anne Mar tin in discussing her candidacy for the U. S. Senate at a meeting of the Neva da Women’sCivic League held at State headquarters in Reno last Tuesday. “We are fighting to establish the right of women to direct participa tion in government,” Miss Martin continued. “To do this an educa tional campaign was necessary. We have carried such a campaign into every precinct of the State. “Three other candidates were in the field, all supported by party or ganizations. Although I was handi capped because I ran as an Indepen dent without any party organization back of me and was the first woman senatorial candidate, I succeeded in winning a vote of nearly five thous and of th* twentv-five thousand cast Nearly one-fifth of the voters of the State put aside prejudice and party affiliations and voted for me. I ran ahead of my Republican opponent backed by the full power of his party organization in White Pine and Clark Counties and was just one vote be hind him in Churchill County. “The results we secured are most encouraging and lay a splendid foun dation for victory later on.”—Advt.

THE IHFLUEHZH SITUATION County Health Officer Makes It Plain That Desperate Chanees Are Being Taken Here Through Lack of Proper Restrictions Being Observed While new cases of influenza are reported from all nearby sections of this portion of the State, Eureka has thus far escaped without a case. Word has been received that those attacked with the disease in the north end of the county, with the exception of George Shultes whose death at Beowawe was reported Wednesday, are now on the way to recovery. Two section hands were taken down with the disease at Palisade the first of the week, but no other new cases in the county have been reported. The cases in the vicinity of Tonkin are doing nicely. From Hamilton where nearly the whole community were afflicted, only one death has occurred and all are reported as fast recovering. The last Reveille announced twelve cases in Austin, but no fatalities. At Ely, McGill, Ruth and Kimber ley the disease has reached an alarm ing condition, several hundred are said to be afflicted, with the physi cians and nurses unable to handle the situation. It has been necessary to turn the school houses at Ely and Ruth into hospitals, and various kinds of conveyances have had to be used in burying the dead. At Tonopah, when the disease was thought to be in check, numerous new cases appeared and of a more violent nature, and a large number in that section are now ill. At the weekly meeting of the Eureka County Council of Defense held Thursday evening the influenza situation in general was taken up and discussed. Dr. Brennen, the County Health Officer, stated that in view of the fact that people of Eu reka were again congregating in sa loons and at other places and paying no attention to the restriction against thus assembling, he believed the ban should be removed from all, and that those attending the schools and moving pictures would be little less exposed than they are now under existing conditions. He emphatical ly declared, however, his warning of precaution regarding means of pre vention must be heeded if the dis ease is kept out of Eureka, and that the people could not afford to be careless and take a chance with the grave outlook. The joint board of trustees of the of the Eureka schools held a meeting yesterday afternoon and, notwith standing the Health Officer’s permis sion to re-open the schools, believed they voiced the sentiment of the par ents and people in deciding to keep the schools closed for at least an otherweek. The management of the Eureka Theatre informs the Sentinel that it is undecided yet as to when the theatre will be re-opened and the moving picture shows resumed.
