EXPERT TESTIMONY.
In the contagious diseases with
which the American public has here
tofore had acquaintance, no person
afflicted with a given disease could
"give" it to another until the progress
of the disease was well marked, and
in some cases not until recovery had
begun. In the influenza, the opposite
appears by all expert testimony to be
the case. A person who is just taking
the influenza and who has so little in
dication of illness that he himself does
not yet even feel indisposed, can pass
on the infection in a virulent form.
You may be sitting chatting this
evening with a friend who to all ap
pearance is in his usual health, and
tomorrow he may be violently ill with
the disease and you may have con
tracted it from him and also be laid
up. Just such instances are on record.
This being the case, the point of
quarantining houses instead of public
assemblages is considerably blunted.
It may be of service quarantine a
man in his home, but if he is allowed
to go about until he is visibly ill, the
damage he may already have done may
well be incalculable.
Influenza may be a fear disease, but
it is also a germ disease, and the
germs appear to flourish and have
their being where they are little sus
pected.
With a practically new disease
among us, with the habits of the
germ not yet fully established except
for the fact that they act sooner and
more viciously than any others. It is
hardly safe for the layman to go up
against the practicing physician who
observes the germ every day and who
keeps himself informed by reading the
testimony of experts.

THE CASUALTY LISTS.
It will be with profound relief that
every American citizen will read the
statement that the last of the casualty
lists have finally reached Washington
and that a thousand extra clerks have
. . , ., . - . . .
been set at the task of issuing them
as promptly as possible.
Ever since the armistice was signed
those who have had members of their
.
family m the combat divisions in
Europe, have felt that their security
was perhaps false and that any day
the blow might fall upon the house
, ,, , ", ,
hold, telling of the death of a son or
husband. There seems in some quar
ters to be a feeling based on consider
ible knowledge of the circumstance
., , ., , , .. ,.
that the whole matter of assembling
and transmitting casualty lists has
been handled in a blundering and in
efficient manner. To an outsider the
... , ,, . , ,. . j
difficulties of gathering such lists and
sending them correctly across the
ocean seems almost insurmountable,
But whether those in charge of this
, , , , . , , , ,
tremendously hard job could have
done better than they did, or whether
they have in reality rendered remark
ably prompt and accurate service in
... , . , .v ,
view of the obstacles they met, the
American family will be grateful to
know that the suspense will soon be
over and that when the present list
is completed, no new heartaches from
announcement of losses need be
feared.
m
NEW TASKS ASSUMED.
Now that the production of war
supplies has ceased and a less strenu
ous program for the future was pro
posed, the Red Cross might naturally
be expected to be willing to take a
much needed rest. The contrary is
the case, at least in Boise, where the
society has assumed full charge of
the detailed conduct of the campaign
ygainst Spanish Influenza.
The ministerial association of the
capital city has passed resolutions,
asking the city authorities that the
Red Cross be given the task of pro
tecting the public against the disease.
Boise, which raised its quarantine and
opened its schools, has had to close
them again, and the teachers are now
instructing all grades in the^ public
schools through lessons published
daily in the papers.
The Red Cross in Boise is getting
physicians to issue simply-worded
I bulletins of precaution and suggestion,
and jt j s distributing these among
the people. It is also reporting cases,
and assisting in seeing that when
homes are quarantined, the members
of the household do not violate the
quarantine but really are isolated
from the rest of the community.

TURKEY PROCEEDED TO AT

mans.
They are one of the oldest Christian
peoples in the world. They lived in
'a, province that lies north of Mesopo
tamia, east of Asia Minor, west of
Persia and south of the Black Sea.
It ife a province of mountains and val
leys—not only rich but fertile. 1,800,
000 Armenians lived in that country,
cultivating the valleys and madd
them "blossom as the rose.'' The
Turks hated them because they were
Christians; hated the m because they
were industrious, and enjoyed the
prosperity that comes from industry.
Later when Turkey entered the
great European war as the ally of
Germany, she invited German officers
into her army. Her army was shortly
officered by German officers, who di
rected that army to go into Armenia
and deport 1,800,000 Armenians,
which they did. 600,000 escaped. The
other 1,200,000 were driven by that
army to the desert of Mesopotamia
and Syria, and in the drive the army
deliberately killed men, women and
children, by rifle ball, by bayonet, by
knife, by driving them over precipices,
by driving them into deep running
rivers—600,000 men women and
children! Half of them were deport
ed to Asia and half to Mesopotamia.
Out of those deported nearly 400,000
died of starvation.
Then Germany turned the Caucasus
over to Turkey—in that kindly, fath
erly way! That is the story!

Off From Moscow.
The Joel and Cornwall telephone
committee had their semi-annual
meeting on Monday and Tuesday of
this week. The Joel company, by a
unanimous vote, decided to discon
nect with Moscow if the public utili

rates. The Cornwall company came
to no decision in this regard; but the
sentiments were strongly against it.
The general opinion among the farm

ZÖLLNER CONCERT REFUSED
Executive Committee of University
Agrees to Forbid Assembling.
There will be no concert by the
Zöllner String Quartet at the uni
versity this evening.
Its appearance has been forbidden
by the executive committee of the
university faculty, after a conference
with Mayor Truitt and the health of
ficers this morning.
Until the Star-Mirror appeared last
evening, the city authorities were not
aware that a concert had been ar
ranged for. City Health Officer Dr.
W. A. Adair, took up the matter with
the mayor this morning, and as a
result, Mayor Truitt invited the uni
versity executive committee to his
office to discuss the matter.
That the holding of the concert was
in direct violation of the proclamation
and health quarantine now in force
in the city was made clear to the com
mittee, and in a fine spirit of co
operation, they agreed to see that the
"I regretted very much that this
step was necessary at this time,"
stated the mayor, "for the university
has been extremely kind and cordial
in co-operating heartily with the city
officials in all matters pertaining to
public health. No doubt heavy ex
pense was incurred at this time to
bring the quartet here, and there will
be inevitable loss. But i{. was clearly
impossible for us to -"allow such a pro
ceeding to go on, because it was di
rectly contrary to the rules we have
passed and are now enforcing in the
city."
