UNDERTAKERS ARE GHOULS CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE “There are innumerable cases ol la grippe, pneumonia, acute rheuma tism, tonsilitis and the like being treated by the doctors of our corps and many other eases have been re ported by individual physicians.” Dr. Dupuy also stated that the city has been divided into six sanitary districts, each in charge of an offi cer of the sanitary corps of the na tional guard. As it will be several weeks before the sewer system is in operation again, a large corps of men will be* kept active disposing of refuse and in disinfecting all premises occupied by refugees. Strict orders regarding the disposition of garbage have been issued and the people have been ad vised by means of bulletins posted in conspicuous places in the streets how b^st to preserve the public health. A small army of sanitary inspec tors has been pressed into service and every effort will be made to pre vent any outbreak of a pestilence. It was owning to the frightful flood con ditions throughout the entire terri tory of which Dayton is the heart, rendering transportation facilities of all kinds useless, that supplies for the medical corps did not reach here until several days after the flood broke. Several cars of lime already have reiached the city and many more are enroute from g^rlous points and arrangements for placing sani tary measures in the hands of fed eral officials were completed at the conference between Secretary of War Garrison, Maj. Gen. Xasunard Wood, Surgeon Gen. Rupert Ulue and the local trelief committee, headed by John, H. Patterson. After Secre tary Garrison had talked over the telephone with Gov. Cox, he decided, that while the state militia would be able to police the city the federal government should have charge of the sanitation. Mr. Garrison stated that Maj. I not. ‘Rhodes with co-operation with Maj. Normoyle, would have charge in Day ton. Maj. Normoyle had experience in furthering relief in the Mississippi flood district last year. Secretary Garrison gave out the substance of his telegram to Presi dent Wilson us follows: "I find the situation at Dayton to be as follows: "The flood has subsided so that they have commifhtcation with all parts of the city, no one being now in any position of peril or without food or shelter. The National Cash Register plant has been turned into a supply depot and lodging place for those who have no other present place. "Surgeon Gen. Blue and some of his officers are here, as are also some naval sergeons. We are all working in concert. The governor, the mayor, the local committees, and the citizens have all expressed much gratitude at the action of the nation al government and have welcomed us warmly, all of them stating that the the fact that a direct hospital has been sent to their community has been of the greatest benefit to the morals of the situation. 1 find a competent (force is already organized to clean up the streets re move the debris and do general work, of that description and have agreed to work under the direction of the army surgeon 1 leave in charge of sanitation. Tho national guards have their adjutant general, Georg# H. Wood, here In command of the military situation and he has eordt* ally offered to co-operate in every way with our work of sanitation. "1 thir.k that the situation here is very sa Isfactory and that <his com munity will find Itself in a reassur ed position within a very short time and facing only then the problems of repair, restoration and rehabilita tion. “I will go back to Cincinnati to night to get Into touch with matters' \ left unfinished there and will go to Columbus at the qaijliest moment. Gov. Cox tells me that he thinks mat ters are In a satisfactory condition in Columbus; that be has ample im-, mediate supply of medicines and other necessities and that much of each is on the way. The weather is very fine and there does not seem to be any cause of apprehension of further floods in the vicinity of Day ton.’* Fifteen thousand persons subsist ed today on rations given out undef direction of the relief committee. Ten thousand of these, It is estimated were in their homes and food was carried to them in boats and automo biles. About five thousand are being car ed *for at the relief stations. This shows a marked reduction in the number of persons being publicly fed. The relief committee has made no attempt to keep a record of the num ber of rations sent out. There is plenty of food and it is being placed in baskets in lots to serve five per sons for two days. Over candles given out with the food, the people are cooking coffee, but the other food is eaten cold. There is no gas and very little coal. The relief stations have been tax ed to capacity now for the flood has subsided enough for people to leave their homes. Homes of persons more fortunate have been thrown open to those whose houses have been swept away or destroyed. Homes usually housing four or five persons in many instances now are sheltering from 2b to 20. Beginning early today the relief committee sent out tons of food foi; these people. Some were found in ; the more remote sections who had not tasted food since Tuesday, but comparatively these cases were few. Dr. Win. Oolby Rucker, Assistant surgeon general of the United States Public Health Service, who came here from Washington at. the direc tion of the secretary of the treasury with Surgeon General Rupert Blue, tonight gave the Associated Press the following outline of the sanitary conditions existing in the city: “A survey of conditions in Dayton today shows that the sanitary situ ation is not so bad as was at first thought. Citizens have been warn ed to boil all drinking water and to 'bury refuse. City -water is now flowing linger twenty pound pres sure. Sewers in some sections are again in operation. The city ex expect* to have others working to morrow. • “The city has fceen divided into sixteen sanitary districts and tonight, physicians who have been sworn in as district sanitary officers are be ing instructed as to their precise du ties as Iliads of these districts.” Blue and Stacker go to Hamilton tomorrow to observe the situation there. The federal sanitation officers are receiving the complete co-operation of the medical officers of the Ohio National Guard.
