FOR IOWA GUARD
State Asks for Treatment to
Make Men Immune in Case
They Are Called Out.
The 3.300 members of the Iowa Na
tional Guard will he given the typhoid
fever treatment immediately iu order
that the regiments may be sent to
Mexico without a delay of three
weeks, if the call for troops is issued
by the war department.
Adjutant General Guy E. Ipan has
wired to Washington ordering typhoid
serum sufficient to treat every enlist
ed man in Iowa. The preparation will
he received In Des Molues In a few
days and will be sent out to the 54
companies making up the Iowa guard.
Arrangements will be made with local
surgeons wherever possible for the
giving of the treatment. Surgeons will
he sent out from Des Moines to points
where local physicians are unable to
do the work.
The typhoid treatment requires 20
days. It consists of three injections
from a hypodermic syringe at inter
vals When complete the person oper
ated on is said to be immune from
uphold fever for a period of three
years. As typhoid Is one of the worst
features the army has to deal with In
war the covernment is reauirine e-r-
erv man sent to the front be made
immune from the disease first.
The action on the part of the Iowa
officers is due to a request from the
government. It Is said to be a precau
tionary measure In keeping with the
other steps taken by the war depart
ment. The mediation proceedings may
hold active operations in Mexico In
suspense for several weeks and possi
bly several months, but the govern
ment is suid to be putting the army
Into shane for instant action if th
peace measures fail.
