Only a few people have been exposed and they were all quarantined at once and as they have all been vaccinated, but little if any danger is imminent. Mr. Jump is past all danger. The quarantine rules are the most rigid and if the people ex posed will be honest and assist those who are controlling the matter, the disease need not spread any further. The schools still continue and people go about their business feeling- as safe as though there was not a case in town. The people know that those in authority can be trusted and the quar antine laws will be enforced.
