iVLuR, Clerk.
Washington, October 8. President
Wilson has met Germany's peace note
with a move which will, at one stroke,
develop whether her proposal is sin
cere or merely a pretension, and, if
a pretnslon it be, fully justify for all
time before the world the prolonging
of the war with force to the utmost,
force without stint or limit, at the
same time the President has left wide
open the door to peace.
Declining to propose an nrmstice
while the armies of the Central Pow
ers remain on Invaded soil, the Pres
ident today called on the German
chancellor to state, as an absolute nec
essary preliminary to a reply from
the Entente Allies and the United
States, whether Germany accepts the
principles of peace as repeatedly laid
down, or merely proposes to accept
them "as the basis of negotiation," '
and whether the chancellor merely
speaks for the German military mast
ers conducting the war, or the whole
German people.
As the full significance of the
President's diplomacy is disclosed it
becomes evident that he lias left open
the way to peace, and at the same
time , has left the militarist leaders of
the Central Powers with a question
they must necessarily answer in a
way that will lead to peace or con
front them with an embarrassing sit
uation in their own countries.
Among diplomats here the Pres
ident's proclamation is regarded as
one of his master strokes. It is point
ed out that upon cursory examination
it may not show such strong terms as
some may have desired. All the Pres
ident s auvisers, nowever, are con
fident that as a close consideration re
veals its full import, it will be ap
parent that it is a long step forward if
Germany really means peace, and that
she does not it will strip hare an
other hypocrisy of German diplomacy
so completely that the responsibility
for prolonging the war never can be
charged to the Allies, even by the
German people themselves.
The text of the President's com
munication was made public today by
Secretary Lansing together with the
official text of Prince Maximilian's
note now published in America for
the first time.
At the same time officials let it be
known that there would be no reply
at present to the Austrian note, similar
to that of the German chancellor. It
not considered necessary to deal
with Austria until the time comes for
reply to her dominating ally.
Correspondence in Case.
In announcing the President's action,
Secretary Lansing issued the follow
ing:

Translation of communication from

of the United States, as transmitted
by the.charge d'affaires A. 1. of Switzer

The German government requests
the President of the United States of

INFLUENZA
SITUATION
Many III But So Far Only Few Serious
Cases Have Developed.
The U. S. Public Health Service re
ports the influenza situation In Pasea-
poula still serious. However tin
measure adopted, such as forbidding
public meetings, closing theatres,
churches, pool rooms, soda fountains,
etc., and discouraging visiting among
neighbors, is having the effect of
checking the spread to new localities.
Most of the cases reported in the past
three days have been in homes al
ready infected. Few cases of pneu
monia have developed and to noon
Friday there had not been a single
death reported from the disease,
though two or three patients who have
pneumonia are in a critical condition.
No definite statement has been
made of the number of cases in town
and estimates range from four to
eight hundred.

WHAT IS SPANISH INFLUENZA?
DR. BLUE TELLS AOUT IT,
Surgeon General of Public Health
Service Gives Important Advice on
How to Avoid the Disease.
The Pascagosla Chapter Red Cross
stands greatly in need of trained
nurses to aid in the present influenza
epidemic. Three of the six physi
cians in town are down with the di
sease and the three remaining are
experiencing great difficulty in re
sponding to the calls. Trained nurses
ire wanted to send out on calls in
lieu of physicians to report on the
urgency of the cases and conserve the
physicians' time for those most in
need. Three nurses have so far re
sponded to the call. They also desire
the help of those who have had some
experience in the care of the sick,
whether trained or untrained, to help
nurse those cases where whole families
are down with the disease.
On instructions from Washington
all local chapters al. points where in
fluenza Is prevalent have formed com
mittees to handle this situation. The
Pascagoula committee is composed of
Rev. John Chipman, Mrs. T. G. Hib-
bler. Dr. J. T. Evans, Mrs. T. E. Mc
Donald and Mrs. A. M. Sharp, work

son of the U. S. Public Health Service.
Those desiring to volunteer their
services should phone Mrs. Hibbler at

Service at No. 65. Calls for assistance
should be made to the same numbers
and help will be supplied if possible,

Dr. Rupert Blue, surgeon general
of the United States Health Service,

"The Flu." It is the last word on

In view of the wide spread of In

article of Surgeon General Blue,
which follows:

The disease now occurring in this
country and called "Spanish Influenza"
resembles a very contagiou kind of'

the head, eyes, ears, back or other
parts of the body, and a fueling of
severe sickness. In most of'the cases
the symptoms disappear after three or
four days, the patient then rapidly re

)
Epidemics of influenza hafe visited
this country since 1647. If 'is ' in
leresttng to know that this, first epi
oeniic was brought here from
Valencia, Spain. Since that time
there have been numerous epidemics
of the disease. In 1889 and" 1890 an
epidemic of influenza, starting some
where in the Orient, spread; first to
Russia, and thence over practically the
entire world. Three years later there
was another flare-up of the .disease
uotn times the epidemic spread wide
ly over the United States.
Although the present epidemic is
called "Spanish influenza," there is
no reason to believe that 'it originated
in Spain. Some writers who have
studied the question believe that the
epidemic came from the Orient and
they call attention to the fact that the
Germans mention the disease as oc
curring along he eastern front in te
summer and fall of 1917.
How can 'Spanish influenza" rbe
recognized?
There is as yet no certain way in
Which a single case of "luiilili .
fluenza" can be recognized: on the
other hand, recognition it easy where
there is a group of eases. In contrast
to the outbreaks of ordinary coughs
and colds which usually occur in the
cold months, epidemics of influenza
may occur al any season of the year,
thus the present epidemic raged most
imousery in Kuropo in May. June and
July. Moreover, in the case of ordi
nary colds, the general symptoms
(fever, pain, depression i .ire by no
means as severe or as sudden in their
onset as they are in influenza. Flnsllv
oi niuary colds do not spread through
the community so rapidly or so exten
sively as does influenza.
In most rases a person taken sick
with influenza feels sick rather sud
denly. He feels weak, lias pains in
the eyes, ears, head or bark, and may
be sore al over. Many patients fee!
dizzy, some vomit. Mo t of the
patients complain of feeling chilly,
and with this comes a fever in which

Nurses and attendants will do well
to guard against breathing in dang-

How can one guard against in

In guarding against disease of all
kinds, it is important that the body
be kept strong and able to light ntf
disease germs. This can lie done by
having a proper proportion of work,
play, and rest, by keeping the body
well clothed, and by eating sufficient,
wholesome and properly selected food.
In connection with diet, it is well to
