Investigation of Four Days
Proves That Most Victims Did Not Contract It at Any Public Gathering. CLOSING BAN AT AN END Will Continue to Source of Disease and Rec- ommend Those Feeling Badly to Stay Away From Crowds. The city board of health will no longer enforce the closing ban in Boise. Its members are of the opinion that Influenza is not contracted in crowds, end they base their conclusions upon on Investigation of cases to ascertain Investigate how the victims caught the. disease. Finding that but a few of them had been out in crowds, and that n, vnrt majority contracted the disease from members of the family having it, Hie city board of health will lake no far ther notion In closing public places ns * preventativo measure. Mayor Hays Saturday night Issued the following statement concerning the Investigations and gives a report from Rev. Wlllsle Martin, chairman of the home service department of the Red Cross: "The city hoard of health has been much subject to criticism. Tho man ner in which influenza should ho pre vented has not been thoroughly work ed out by tlie medical profession. Here tofore In all cases tin» board acted on medical advice. When called on by the Red Cross committee, and closing of the pool halls and picture shows was urged, we, did not do so, but acted under the belief in closing them that that was what the people wanted, al though our investigation lmd led us to believe that this was a wrong method. "There are stores into which a larg er number of pooph enter than any other institutions in Boise. Three Main streets stores in the height of the epidemic employed lGG clerk's, only six of them had the disease. The pic ture shows employ seven people who constantly come in touch with the public: rone of them had 11c disease. 1 1 the disease was primarily spread la CI-..M «is. tin* clerk S and the picture show employes should all have had it.

I I lb, BAN SEASON is just opening. Plain or ornamental BANS are lo he expected daily from now on. A HAN is a thing clapped on SOME pom ELSE after a shoi*t terroristic campaign. After clapping on a BAN the next thing is to sit down and find out if there is any sense in the matter. If there has been none—well, no matter—our snug professional jobs are still safe and the mob has had healthy exercise walking the streets. So the poor half-witted Canaille, the show goers, can rest secure, knowing that the scintillating, brilliant intellects of the hundred, that en compasses all knowledge ( except common sense, which being COMMON is an attribute of plebians ) will protect us and will unhesitatingly throw us out in the streets again should our WELEARE require it. The Judge Talks Sense In delivering the final opinion on the BAN CASE in Los Angeles, Judge Thomas P.
