O.-(Special.)-Ac cording to a report made to the United States Public Health Service, the epi demic of Influenza In Spain has al ready caused an increase In the preva. ( lence and deaths from pulmonary tu berculosls. A similar association be tween Influenu and tuberculosls was ) recently made by Sir Arthur News. holme, the chief medical officer of the English public health service, in his analysis of the tuberculosis death rate in England. ) In order that the people ato the Unit ed States may profit by the experience of other countries Surgeon General Rupert Blue of the United States Pub lic Health Service has jat iuen5 a Swarning emphaslsing the need of pe %al precautions at the present time "Experience seems to ladicate," asn the Surgeon General, "that persons whose resistance has been weakened ) by an attack of Influenas are pecullr ly susceptible to tuberculosis. With millions of Its people recently affeted with Influenza this eountry new of fers conditions favorlng the spead of tuberculosis." One Million Consumptives in the United States S"Then you consider this a serious mnnace was asked. "In my opinlon it is, though I hasten to add it s dis tinctly one against which the people can guard. So far as one can estimate there are at present about one million cases of tuberculosis In the United States. There is unfortunately no ) complete census available to show ex actly the number of tuberculosis per. I sons In each state despite the fact that most of the states have made the d Is ease reportable. In New York city, where reportln has been In force for many years, over &%000 cases of tu berculosis are registered with the De partment of Health. Those familiar with the situation believe that the ad dition of unrecognised and unreported caseams would make the number nearer 50,000. The very careful health asur vey conducted durlng the past two li iyears in Frminghamnl Muass., revealed 200 cases of tuberculols in a populs tlon of approximately 15,000. If thee proportions hold true for the Unlted I States as a whole they would Indicate that about one in every hundred per sons Is tuberculous BLch of these constitutes a source of danger to be guarded agalast." SWhatto De. In his statement to the public Bur ooan General Blue points out how those who have had Inflemas should protoct thmsealves aganlast tuberculo. ( dl.

The money spent on such dIn medicinea is thrown away; ,t should i1 be spent Instead for good food and ds. cs living." YOUR RED CROSS WHAT IT DOES t "I wish that I could in some way . make you understand that magnitude i of the work of the Red Cross," writes a Miss Harriet Root abroad with the I Wellesley College Canteen unit. "One runa ., ros~ some phase of Its work every day." The Red Cross has many trades and professions represented in Its e. ranks as the army. One man cited e d for bravery shown while distributing 1. chocolate and cigarettes under heavy 1. fire at the front was a New York bank. a. er turned canteen worker. c I. Vegetable gardens for convalescent a soldiers at the American army hoe-s . pitals in France have proved so se. e cessful that the American Red Cross a has sent a representative to this coun e try to secure ten expert market gar deners to direct such activities at all II I American hospitals in France. To con- b valescent soldlers these gardens offer 'useful and Interesting occupation. In many'cases of shell shock, farm work is one of the best restoratives. Other patients enjoy the outdoor actlviths also. The American Red Cross Canteen Service has issued a directory quarter. ly which will be given to each troop train commander and which contains directions for making use of the Can teen Service and its emergency medl eal resources. There are 685 can teens now in operation in this country. g Sending to Enrope 141.000,000 bush del of wheat from a surplus of appar. . eotly nothing was the outstanding ex Ilolt of the American food army in the f uritial year of the war. tl -L HUNTING NOTICE.
