INFLUENZA STRIKES TUSCULUM NO SERIOUS CASES ALL BETTER Tusculum College had considered itself fortunate in escaping the in fluenza epidemic this fall, there hav ing been only three cases in school up to two weeks ago. However, the second round of the disease brought down twenty-five or more cases, and in order to take every precaution to stop the infection school was sus pended for two weeks. President Gray's home, which is being used as a military hospital, was not sufficient to take care of the men, and the lower floor of the S. A. T. C. barracks was converted into a hos pital.
