No Cause for Alarm If Tuberculosis Is Recognized Early—FVatent Medi cines Not to Be Trusted. Beware tuberculosis after In fluenza. No need to worry If you take precautions In time. Don’t diagnose your own con dition. Have your doctor exam ine your lungs several times at monthly Intervals. Build up your strength with right living, good food and plenty of fresh air. Don’t waste money on patent medicines advertised to cure tu berculosis. Become a fresh-alr crank and enjoy life. Washington, D. C. (Special.)—Ac cording to a report made to the United Stutes Public Health Service, the epi demic of influenza in Spain has al ready caused an Increase in the preva lence and deaths from pulmonary tu berculosis. A similar association be tween influenza and tuberculosis was recently made by Sir Arthur News holme, the chief medical officer of the English public health service, in his analysis of the tuberculosis death rate in England. In order that the people of the Unit ed States may profit by the experience of other countries Surgeon General Rupert Blue of the United States Pub lic Health Service has just issued a warning emphasizing the need of spe cial precautions at the present time. “Experience seems to Indicate,” says the Surgeon General, “that persons whose resistance has been weakened by an attack of influenza are peculiar ly susceptible to tuberculosis. With millions of its people recently affected with influenza this country now of fers conditions favoring the spread of tuberculosis.” One Million Consumptives in the United States. “Then you consider this a serious menace?” was asked. “In my opinion it is, though I hasten to add It is dis tinctly \>ne against which the people can guard. So far as one can estimate there are at present about one million cases of tuberculosis In the United States. There is unfortunately no complete census available to show ex actly the number of tuberculous per sons in each state despite the fact that most of the states have made the dis ease reportable. In New York city, where reporting has been in force for many years, over 35,000 cases of tu berculosis are registered with the De partment of Health. Those familiar with the situation believe that the ad dition of unrecognized and unreported cases would make the number nearer 50,000. The very careful health sur vey conducted during the past two years in Framingham, Mass., revealed 200 cases of tuberculosis in a popula tion of approximately 15,000. If these proportions hold true for the United States as a whole they would indicate that about one in every hundred per sons is tuberculous. Each of these constitutes a source of danger to be guarded against.” What to Do. In his statement to the public Sur geon General Blue points out how those who have had influenza should protect themselves against tuberculo sis. “All who have recovered from In fluenza,” says the Surgeon General, “should have their lungs carefully ex amined by a competent physician. In fact, it Is desirable to have several ex aminations made a month apart. Such examinations cannot be made through the clothing nor can they be carried out In two or three minutes. If the lungs are found to be free from tuber culosis every effort should be made to keep them so. This can be done by right living, good food and plenty of fresh air.” Danger Signs. The Surgeon General warned espe cially against certain danger signs, such as “decline” and “colds which hang on.” These, he explained, were often the beginning of tuberculosis. “If you do not get well promptly, If your cold seems to hang on or your health and strength decline, remember that these are often the early signs of tuberculo sis. Place yourself at once under the cnre of a competent physician. Tuber culosis Is curable in the early stages. Patent Medicines Dangerous In Tuber culosis. “Above all do not trust In the mis leading statements of unscrupulous patent medicine fakers. There Is no specific medicine for the cure of tuber culosis. The money spent on such medicines Is thrown away; It should t>e spent instead for good food and de cent living.” WHERE WOUNDED MEN YIELD TO DAY DREAMS Restored to Health and Vigor in Red Cross Convalescent Homes. The gurgeon has extracted the Im partially distributed bits of shrupnel from your works. The wounds have healed. The wheels go ’round again, and the clock ticks. But It doesn’t keep correct time. This business of calling "Time I” on the Boche means so many broken clocks nowadays that the master-inenders can’t keep them on their tables after they’re mended. So the question where they shall sit around while they’re be ing regulated looms large. The Red Cross answers that ques tion with Its convalescent homes. It has six of these in operation. A suit able place Is found—sometimes do nated—and management and equip ment are provided by the Red Cross, while the Army has furnished disci pline and a never-falling supply of con valescents. These homes mean that men who are scarcely hospital subjects, yet who can by no means go back to their du ties, have a place that does what “home” does for the French or Eng lish soldier, what "home” does for any one, In fact, when the doctor gets through. You know. He says: “You’re all right now. It’s oDly a matter of nurs ing and food.” But you know he’s only looking at the works he's tinkered, and that the soul within you is grousing as It never did when the body was down and out. It wants something, and It doesn't know what It Is. But If It doesn’t get It pretty quick the works are going to get gummed again. You know your mother could find out what that dog gone thing Is right away and hand It to you on a plate. But General Per shing won’t let you go to her. • * • And the War Department won’flet her come to you Then you’re taken to a Red Cross convalescent home—and there Is the very thing you wanted I But you couldn’t describe it even then to save your life. It is a bit of coddling, and pretty surroundings, and women’s faces, and light laughter and time to play and all that sort of thing. It Is forgetting the crash of war and remembering that there are pleasant, soft voices. It’s even such things as gaily-flowered sofa pillows to Jnm Into a corner and make a nice lolling place while you read and-smoke and talk. It’s slippers In stead of trench boots, or day-dreams in place of the nightmare of killing. NO SEALS SOLO THIS YEAR. The customary sale of Red Cross Christmas seals will not be held this year. It seemed best to both the American Red Cross and the National Tuberculosis Association to unite In the Red Cross Christmas Roll Call to reduce the number of appeals to the public for contributions. There will be no lessening of activities by the National Tuberculosis Association through this arrangement, as the Red Cross War Council has appropriated $2,500,000 for anti-tuberculosis work In 1919 In lieu of the money that ordi narily would be raised by a Christmas Seal Campaign. However, every per son joining the Red Cross during the Red Cross Christmas Roll Call will be awarded ten seals to be used as here tofore. THE RED OROSS GORDON. An American Red Gross worker who was among those volunteering to help in the hospitals and at the station where the hospital trains arrived, over heard some of the wounded talking about the American Red Cross. “Gee I We’d a starved If It hadn’t been for the Red Cross 1” said one boy, and then, laughing ut his own exagger ation, he went on to explain the cir cumstances under which the Red Cross representative with his division had done some timely service. The Ger mans, of course, were to blame, for [ they retreated so rapidly that It was practically Impossible for the supplies to keep up with the pursuing Ameri cans. “We cleaned up seven kilometers In less than two hours,’’ another reclining figure explained, “and they were still going when I was knocked out For three days I had had nothing to eat but hard tack, and for some days be fore the food had been monotonous— u> not U mildly, Ss sau aan lisslne wh*,t It meant to ns boys to have the Red Cross Gordon come up with a sup ply of chocolate, canned peaches and other good things. It was a life-saver.” FAITH JUSTIFIED BY EVENTS. 1 do Dot believe that drastic force need be applied to main tain economic distribution and sane use of supplies by the great majority of American peo ple, and I have learned a deep and abiding ffalth Id the Intelli gence of the average American business man, whose aid we an ticipate and depend on to reme dy the evils developed by the war.—Herbert Hoover, August 10, 1917. THE RED CROSS ROLL CALL. When ‘‘the greatest mother In the world” calls the roll the week of December 16-23 the hope of the American Ued Cross is that the answer for the entire American people will be: “All present, or accounted for.” It will be the occasion for 22,000,000 adults and 8,000.000 children to renew their member ship and for all others to join. One happy slogan of the roll call announces that “all you need is u heart and a dollar.” Why does the Red Cross at Christinas conduct a member ship campaign? Because it unites the people ln» an Intimate way with the organization they have supported so magnificently. In other countries one of the most impressive things about the American Red Cross is the size of its membership, attesting truly popular approval. This Christmas, when our country is out of the deep waters of the war, every dollar paid for an annual membership in the Red Cross will be a direct Christmas gift to our land, air and sen forces and to those who have felt the sling of war in a way that we in this country jiave not experienced. The min istrations of the lied Cross will be as good a substitute for Christmas ut home as can be furnished under the circum stances. The women of America, see ing in the Red Cross an exten sion upon a universal scale of the mothering Instinct, will be quick to answer “Here” to the roll call, because service and sacrifice are womanly qualities and they are Red Cross quali ties. President Wilson, aB president of the American Red Cross, says: “I summon you to the comradeship 1" “I think if the people of America could only see and realize wlmt the boys are doing out here,” said a Cap tain after Chateau-Thlerry, “they would gladly back them up with their last dollars and their lives if neces sary ” THE SPANISH HOTEL This hotel, formerly the Venezia, is now under new management and will be conducted in a manner to please all patrons.
