Kead news. the Appeal for all the war The To WAR SOWINGS STAMPS ISSUED BY THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT The War Saviugs Plan, by which our Government expects to raise more than two billion dollars during the next twelve months, not only provides an opportunity for the millions of loyal Americans, whose meager income prevents their subscribing for Liberty Bonds, to lend their small savings to their country it has a much wider scope. It is an appeal to every man, woman and child of the nation, whether their income be measured in dollars or thousands of dollars, to limit their purchases to necessary commodities to SAVE and lend their savings to the Government. The Saving is as indispensable as the Lending The truth of this is apparent to every thinking person. The great war we are waging for freedon necessitates the putting of hundreds of thousands of men in the fielc and keeping them fed and clothed. It necessitates the production of ships and shells, guns and motor trucks tind airplanes and hospital supplies. To produce these things will require the combined effort of most of the big industrial plants of the country, which are still making for you and your friends all the pleasant and comfortable luxuries you consumed before the war. You bought Liberty Bonds, of course, and you'll buy more next month. That is patriotic and highly commendable. But you are not doing enough when you draw money out of the bank and invest it in Government securities. You must do more. You must buckle down and make it your own personal daily business to help win the war. You must give up the things you don't need. The Government must have money a tremendous quantity of money and it must have the productive labor of millions of workers who are now making unnecessary articles for you and other Ameri cans who can afford to buy them.

Washington, D. C (Special.) Al though King Alfonso of Spain was one of the victims of the influenza epi demic in 1S03 and again this summer, Spanish authorities repudiate any claim to inlluenza as a "Spanish" dis ease. If the people of this country do not take care the epidemic will be come so widespread throughout the United States that soon we shall hear the disease called "American" influ enza. In response to a request for definite Information concerning Spanish influ- ! enza, Surgeon General Rupert Blue of the U. S. Fublic Health Service has authorized the following official inter view : What is Spanish Influenza? Is It something new? Does it come from Spain? "The disease now occurring in this country and called 'Spanish -Inlluenza' resembles a very contagious kind of 'cold,' accompanied by fever, pains Coughs and Sneezes Spread Diseases PREPARE FOR COLD- WEATHER New line of winter suits, received this week in all sizes; also in Men's up-to-date Overcoats.

In most of the cases the symptoms disappear after three or four days, the patient then raphlly recover ing. Some of the patients, however, develop pneumonia, or Inflammation of the ear, or meningitis, and many of these complicated cases die. Whether this so-called 'Spanish' Influenza la Identical with the epidemics of influen za of earlier years is not yet known. "Epidemics of influenza have visited ' this country since 1G17. It is Interest I ing to know that this first epidemic ! was brought here from Valencia, 1 Spain. Since that time there have i been numerous epidemics of the dis ease. In and tt;u an epidemic of influenza, starting somewhere in the Orient, spread first to Russia and thonce over practically the entire civ ilized world. Three years later there was another flare-up of the disease. Both times the epidemic spread wide ly over the United States. "Although the present epidemic Is called 'Spanish influenza,' there is n reason to believe that it originated in Spain. Some writers who have studied the question believe that the epidemic came from t he Orient and they c:ill at tention to the fact that the Germans mention the disease as occurring along the eastern front in the summer and fall of 1017." How can "Spanish lnfluenza"-be rec ognized? "There Is as yet no certain way in which a single case of 'Spanish influ enza' can be recognized. On the oth er hand, recognition is easy where there is a group of cases. In contrast to the outbreaks of ordinary coughs and colds, which usually occur in the cold months, epidemics of Influenza may occur at any season of the year. Thus the present epidemic raged most intensely in Europe in May, June and July. Moreover, In the case of ordi nary colds, the general symptoms (fever, pain, depression) are by no means as severe or as sudden in their onset as they are in influenza. Final ly, ordinary colds do not Spread through the community so rapidly or so extensively as does influenza. examination or the patient's blood may aid the physician in recognizing 'Span ish influenza, for It has bocu found that in this disease the number of white corpuscles shows little or no In crease above the normal. It is possi ble that the laboratory investigations now being made through the National Research Council and the United States Hygienic Laboratory will fur nish a more certain way in which Indi vidual, cases of this disease can be recognized." What is the course cf the disease? Do people die of it? "Ordinarily, the fever lasts from three to four days .nd the' patient re covers. But while the proportion of deaths In the present epidemic has generally been low, in some places the outbreak has been severe and deaths hflve been numerous. When death oc curs it is usually the result of a com plication." What causes the disease and how Is it spread? "Bacteriologists who have studied In fluenza epidemics in the past have found in many of the cases a very Small rod-shaped germ .called, after its discoverer, Tfeiffer's bacillus. In other cases of apparently the same kind of disease there were found pneumococci, the germs of lobar pneumonia. Still others have been caused by strepto cocci, and by others germs with long names. "No matter what particular kind of germ causes the epidemic, It is now i believed that Influenza Is always spread from person to person, the germs being carried with the air along with the very small droplets of mucus, r,rircirv expelled hv coughing or sneezing, DR- R- VON RaDESKY forceful taiking, and the like by one Physician ana Surgeon who already has the germs of the dis- !

As in most other catching diseases, a person who lias only a mild attack of the disease himself may give a very severe attack to others." What should be done by those who catch the disease? ' "It is very important that every per son who becomes sick with influenza should go home at once and go to bed. This will help keep away dangerous complications and will, at the same time, keen the patient from scattering the disease far and wide. It is highly desirable that no one be allowed to j sleep In the same room with the pa- j tieut. In fact, no one but the nurse i should be allowed in the room. "If there is couch and sputum or running of the eyes and nose, care should be taken that all such dis charges are collected on bits of gauze o- rag or paper napkins and burned. If the patient complains of fever and headache, he should le given water to drink, a cold compress to the forehead and a light sponge. Only such medi cine should be given as is prescribed by the doctor. It is foolish to ask the druggist to prescribe and may lie dan gerous to take the so-called 'safe, sure and harmless' remedies advertised by patent medicine manufacturers. "If the patient is so situated that he can be attended only by some one who must also look after others in the fam ily, it is advisable that such attendant wear a wrapper, apron or gown over WARREN K.

"Nurses and attendants will do well to guard against breathing In danger ous disease germs by wearing a simple fold of gauze or mask while near the patient" Will a person who has had influenza before catch the disease again? "It Is well known that an attack of measles or scarlet fever or smallpox usually protects a person against an other attack of the same disease. This appears not to be true of 'Spanish In fluenza.' According to newspaper re ports the King of Spain suffered an attack of Influenza during the epi demic thirty years ago, and was again stricken during the recent outbreak In Spain." How can one guard against Influ enza? "In guarding against disease of all kinds, it is Important that the body be kept strong and able to fight off dis ease germs.

"It is especially Important to be ware of the person who coughs or sneezes without covering hia mouth and nose.

In most cases the pulse remains relative ly slow. "In nppearance one Is struck by the fact that the patient looks sick. His eyes and the Inner side of his eyelids may be slightly 'bloodshot,' or 'con gested,' as the doctors say. There may be running from the nose, or there may be some cough.
