FACTS ABOUT _ TYPHOID FEVER' ( t ' Public Health Service Issues More Free Booklets in Attractive Form. , Seme facts about Typhoid Fever. "It is caused by a definite well recog-i ~nized germ, >and it is never caused ^by anything else. This germ never causes the disease unless it gains en trance ihto the digestive tract of people. There is only one method of i entrance into the digestive tract?j the mouth. Therefore the only meth ! oq of contracting Typhoid Fever is ' - 1 ! j ! by swallowing tne xypuuiu gcim., T^Tiere does this germ come from* and why do we ever swallow it? I This all important question is easily -answered?the only source of supplyj ; is the body discharges of those who | ave or had had the disease, and they are .wallowed because proper care is not taken in the disposal of 'these discharges. Therefore, a person with Typhoid Fever has swallowed the discharges from another person "who at the time is suffering 'with the disease, or from a Typhoid carrier?a person who has had the disease at some previous time, but still manufactures the germ in his di-1 gestive tract Investigation has -show* that four per cent of all those "having the disease become carriers. - These carriers are the greatest source, of danger to others because they are not aware of the fact? Jaence they take no precautions. The: average death rate from Ty. | phoid is ten per cent. The average -cost of'Typhoid cases is more than fifty dollars each, counting the care for the sick, it costs many times more -for a person to be sick with Typhoid | than the burial of a person. Four per cent of those recovered are Ty-phoid carriers and act as constant danger to theii family and community, thus the urgent need for sanitation. V; METHODS OF SPREADING TYPHOID. . There are three agencies....the ' laand, the house fly; and drinking /water. The hands <of those coining ip coirtaSct with Jhe excreta, 'bed cloches and dishes -of a Typhoid parent can easily carry the germs to -their own months, or contaminate the ; -food 01 others. In a similar'way "the Typhoid carrier is a constant source of danger to those about her. There is upon record a case where -an epidemic of twenty cases of Ty^oid with three deaths were traced K directly to ic^ cream served at a picjfc ^iic. "dQ those who ate cream from h & certain cdiurn contracted the disease y -except the woman who made it and | tier daughter. Investigation showed that this woman had had the disease seventeen years before and that three out of fire school teachers who had boarded m her home since then had /likewise contracted it, besides almost |'*avery rr ember of heir own family. | /Elimination of the bowel movement ? ;*of this woman showed the presence - -of the ^rerm?conclusive proof that pshe was the sovsrce of infection, g- Water to be a source of infection ? ai:U3fc be coutajoiaiated with, human j g excreta.

Meat Supply Here Considerably En* larged ? Food Administration, However, Warns Against Waste. - The allies have made further and Increased demands for breadstuffs, these enlarged demands being caused to some degree by shortage in arrivals 1 from the Argentine. It is, therefore, necessary for the D. S. Food Administration to urge a Still further reduction in the consumption of bread and breadstuffs generally if we are to meet our export necessities. The Food Administration has issued a statement ex* plaining the situation in detail, particularly the reasons which lead it, for the purpose of centering effort for the time being .upon the cereal situation to relax temporarily the restrictions on meat consumption. Experience shows, this statement says, that the consumption of breadstuffs is intimately associated with the Consumption of meat For various reasons our-supplies of meat for the next two or three months are considerably enlarged, and we can supply the allies with all of the meat products which transportation facilities render possible and at the same time somewhat increase our own consumption. In these circumstances the Food Administration considers It wise to relax rnlnntomr FaoMMInnc nn moflf Oftn. U1C fVI UUCU1J l^guuuvuo Vu buvuv VV" sumption to some extent with a view to further decreasing bread consumption. Conservation of food must be adJusted to meet necessities from time to time, for neither production, nor allied demands are constant factors, nor can any of these factors be anticipated for long periods in advance in the disturbed conditions in which we at present live. While the world situation Is not one that warrants any relaxation in the efforts to eliminate waste or to relax economy in food, the Administration desires to secure better adjustment in food balances. So long as the present conditions continue the only special restrictions we ask are the beefless and porkless Tuesday. The meatless meal and the porkless Ddturuay are uu HKiger aa&eu. The farmers of -the United States are responding to the national call to increase bog prodattion.. Their increase, to all appearances, is being attained more rapidly. . Of more immediate importance, however, are several complex factors which have effected an immediate increase lp meat supplies. ^ The transportation shortage before the, government took over the railroads, the bad weather in January and early in February, the large percentage of immature corn in the last barvest and the necessity of feeding this corn as rapidly as possible to save it from decay, have not only resulted in backing up the animals?particularly hogs?on the farms for a longer period of feeding, but have resulted in a great increase in their average weight and will result, with Improved transportation conditions, which'already appear. in larger than normal arrivals at market for the next two or three months. The weight of hogs coming to the market for the past two weeks Indicates an increase in weight of from an average of 203 pounds last year to the almost unprecedented average of 232 pounds, or a net Increase in their meat value of over 15 per cent. This is a distinct addition to the nation's meat supply. It therefore now seems certain that we have such enlarged supplies for at least some months to come, that we can not i only Increase our exports to the allies j to the full extent of their transporta- ' tion facilities, but at the same time ; can properly increase our domestic j consumption. The response of the public to our re- ! quests for reduced consumption of meat during the past few months has been most gratifying, and this service ; alone has enabled the government during this period to provide such supplies as transportation to the allies nn.n. I 4-t-nri | |/C1 lllllicu* The Administration also suggests that in those parts of the country where the old fashioned home preoerj vat Ion of pork Is still the custom, this practice should be extended at the present time, as It will relieve the burj den upon transportation to and from the packing houses and Is economically sound as saving the cost of packing operations and at the same time will provide home supplies of pork to last over the months of decreased supplies. The Food Administration desires tc repeat that it does not want to give j the impression that these are times! when simplicity and moderation of liv-1 lag are not critically necessary, but j that its sole desire Is to secure an adInstment between our dliTerent food supplies and meet changing conditions from time to time and to keep the pubiic fully and frankly advised of its position with the full confidence and i reliance that whenever It becomes nee-! essary renewed appeals for saving will j met the same loyal response as in tb i! oast.
