CHECK ARMY CONTAGION.
In the winter of 1 11!-17 the army sur
Geons nutnsig'ed to keep the sickness
rate of the soldiers down, but to do so
they hal to keep on the job sill the
time. Tu reduee contagion they had to
keep down eolds. Some of their experi
ences were such as everybody encount
ers^ every day in civil life.
The men were living in tents. They
banked earth against the side vails of
the tent. During December the quar
termaster's department fitted the cen
ter-hole in tlie top of t.he tent with a
metal cap which prevented hot air from
escaping that way.
About January 1 the tents were fitted
with snug doors. When a norther start
ed the men proceeded to "hole up."
They closed and chinked every crack
through which fresh air could enter or
foul air escape and then they sat
around the stove spitting. Good shots
foul hit the stove a hull's eye poor ones
spat on the floor. The bedding was not
sunned or aired. The men huddled sill
day over the hot stove.
In the wake of each norther there
came a trail of colds. The record of
measles In camp showed a very definite
relation between outbreaks of this dis
ease and "northers." Whenever the
tents were dosed and the stoves were
set going at a top rate the air became
both hot and dry. It was dry enough
to irritate the nasal mucous membrane.
Undue drying then might well favor
the development of measles as it does
of respiratory diseases." "There is dif
ference enough to give the sensation of
undue dryness on entering an over
heated tent during a "norther.'
An effective measure for the preven
tion of colds was the daily sunning and
airing of bedding. Two hours of direct
sunlight a day is a very effective bac
tericidal agent. The woman who suns
her bedding each day will find that she
has fewer cases of colds and measles to
nurse and care for.
Munson says: "Clinical experience
Indicates that sunning and airing for a
couple of hours will destroy it [the
virus of measles and and the contagion
of colds as welll. but measles secretion
or sputum protected from light and ail
a dark closed habitation possibly
further kept relatively moist by several
layers of blanket or cloth or on soiled
hankerchiefs or linen in a clothes bag
might reasonably—and doubtless does—
retain its virulence for some days."
Speaking of the spread of colds and
then measles under camp conditions
Munson says: "The cots practically
touched each other with the usual
(tuota of eight men to a tent. The
men sis they huddled around the stove
formed a group the units of which were
only a couple of feet apart at the most.
Coughing and sneezing scattered in
fectious droplets through the air which
others were breathing. Men with
measles "colds" soon acquired and
sonstantl.v renewed a film of infection
on their hands from the use of soiled

Serving the Enemy.
From the Chicago Nt'ws.
Students of the new testann-iit know
that the third chapter of James, a homily
on the abuse of free speech, might well
be taken to heart by all of us in this too
loquacious time. "The tongue can no
man tame it is nil unruly evli." How
ever. if the worid is to be safe for de
mocracy the attempt must, be made, even
though to many superficial thinkers the
freedom of that clacking member con
stitutes ilie essence of democracy.
The .American government appears to
be entirely competent to deal with those
persons who. taking advantage of a mis
conception of their constitutional rights,
proceed to litter sedition, it remains tile
duty of the patriotic citizen to censor his
t'neonsciously a great many worthy
persons lend themselves to the designs
of the enemies of democracy by repeat
ing gossip and scandal that come to
them, as they imagine, by chance, hut
that in reality is coldly calculated to
reach their ears and be disseminated by
their tongues. In giving utterance to any
yarn that, however insidiously, assails
the government or any of tlie agencies
charged with the conduct of the war,
without first verifying it, a citizen Is
morally if not legally guilty of giving aid
to tlie enemy. He is permitting himself
to be used'for an evil purpose.
Repetition of slanders injurious to the
cause of the allied democracies Is not
free speech. It is speech in bondage to
the forces that oppose freedom. There
fore, it ie the patriotic duty of every citi
zen not only to avoid spreading such re
ports, but to challenge them whenever
he hears them and seek to trace them t9
their noxious source.
Jordan at Kedron.
From the Buffalo News.
David Star Jordan has at last recog
nized the menace of the Potsdam Goliath.
He has not donned khaki—yet. But
neither did the biblical David take kindly

struggle, and. as 1 have said, the only

democracy or tyranny be on top and

Well aimed, David! The enrollment of
old time pacifists on the side of the fnited
States ia becoming unanimous.
Only a few erratic, self centered, self
admiring, aelf seeking thinkers continue
to feel It their duty to oppose tlie method
adopted by the greater part or the world
