The Mobil News Item of Sept. Ill) carried a notice of the death of Private Fred Mumme, a former Pucagoula boy who has been residing in .Mobile fin the past several years, and was one of tin' first to volunteer when the United States went to war with Germany, lie has numerous relatives aud friends here. Later report! from cutting off the dead end after the spark the war department corrected the re had crawled inward toward the maga- nnrl Gf voting Mumme'a death and zlne. I stated that he had been severely wounded. New York, Oct. 4. The harmony prevailing between the Y. M. C. A. war workers at the training camps in this country and the men from other organizatons who are helping to make more cheerful and more home like the lives of the troops at the army train ing camps, is emphasized by Rabbi Louis J. Kopald of Buffalo, who recent ly returned home after spending six weeks as camp rabbi for the Jewish Welfare Hoard at Camp Mills, Mineola, Lone Island. "Before the war," said Rabbi Kop ald, as he was returning to Buffalo. "I had felt that the religions of America were coming together and that brotherhood was truly in the making, but now I am convinced thai brotherhood in America is already made. It is a great and glorious fact. The only difference between a Y. M. C. A. man, a Knight of Columbus chap lain and a Jewish rabbi is the differ ence in the insignia on their sleeves, for they all wear the samp regulation army uniform. "I hadn't been in camp a day before the Y. M. C. A. man came over to extend a cordial welcome, and the Knight of Columbus chaplain had giv en me a lift in his machine. Within a week I had an interesting visit with the commandant, Major Pickering, and had met officials of all rank. Through all I felt, above aud beyond the military atmosphere and neces sary restrictions of military relation ship, there was but a single purpose to enter into this war heart and soul to win. "If victory for the allies depends on the will of our boys to win. we already have the situation in hand. I had heard of the American spirit and had seen it exemplified in civilian life, but I never knew the spirit that en thralls America untill I spent a week at Camp Mills. "There is nothing on the face of the globe that measures up to the spirit of the soldiers. They are in the war heart, 30ul and body. Their constantly present thought is to get over and in the fight. If every cit izen could Bpend a single day at such a camp, organized campaign appeals such as Liberty Loan, the War Sav ing Stamps and the R$d Cress would be "wholly unnecsssai y W.S.S. CITY BEAUTIFUL. SPANISH "FLU" INVADES COAST Several Cases in Pascagoula Disease So Far of Llgheter Type. In company with other coast cities . Pascaoula has a few cases of Spanish influenza, which has become pretty general throughout the United States especially in the North and Eeast Most of the cases which have develop ed here are of a mil 1 type. The chief danger from the influenza is that if proper care is not taken of the patient pneumonia win develop. Col. Philip S. Iloane, head of the Health and Sanitation Section of the Emergency Fleet Corporation, has the following to say of the disease: "Spanish influenza is nothing more or less than old-fashioned grip, and is verv infectious. The disease in it self is not dangerous, but if the great est care is not taken, pneumonia will develop rapidly. "Spanish influenza infects the lungs, brings on bronchitis, and then comes pneumonia if it is not taken care of in the early stages. "A patient should be isolated im mediately and sent to bed in a room which is warm and well ventilated. The patient should be given plenty of water, quinine and Hovers powder I opium) so that he or she can he kept perfectly quiet, Preventative meas ures which I have sent to all ship yards follow : "Keep out of crowds." "Keep away from theatres and movie shows, and other places where people come together in large num bers." "If you have a cold, start treating it immediately." "Carry a clean pocket handkerchief and when using the same do not flap it about." "Keep the general health in as good condition as possible." "Keep the nostrils and other breath ing passages clean." "Three times each day irrigate the nose and use as a gargle a solution j made up of the following: Half a ! feaspbhnful of tafde salt, half a tea- i spoonful of baking soda and six ounces of water.

President Wilson and his advisers ave a great many matters to handle and many questions to decide. Let ua not leave them to do all the thinking or all the talking on this question The American people are concerned to such a degree in this matter that they should not delegate to any man or body of men the task of thinking for them. They should do their own thinking and when they have had time to formulate a plan that looks feas ible and thoroughgoing, they should say to their servants at Washington, from the President down: '1 he News-Item says: I rivate Fred Mumme of Compan A. 187th Infantry, was klled in action on July 2G, according lo telegram jusl receved by his father, captain George Mumme.
