Health Notes.
By M. S. Parker.

(Editor’s note — Mr. Parker was former health officer for Boise, deputy state pure food inspector and is now field secretary in Idaho for the Anti-Tuberculosis league.)

Figures are being compiled by the National Tuberculosis association which will show the number of men rejected by local draft boards in this country on account of tuberculosis, and it is estimated that is will be between 60,000 and 70,000 while many more found to be victims of that dread disease at the cantonments. At any rate it is safe to say that the number of registered men rejected is appallingly large and that fact should be enough to cause greatly increased activity along the line of tuberculosis prevention and cure. Idaho had 250 registrants between the ages of 21 and 31 years rejected in the first draft and at cantonments and the situation thus indicated is causing no little apprehension among those who are fighting the White Plague in this state.

The people of this country learned some very valuable health lessons during the recent war and they will immeasurably profit by them in the years to come. Sanitation at cantonments and even at the battle fronts was reduced to a science in all that the term implies and the health and lives of our fighters were carefully guarded at all times.

The American Red Cross appropriated $2,500,000 for tuberculosis work in the United States and a vigorous campaign is being waged against that disease in every section of the country. It is quite probable that much tuberculosis will result from the influenza epidemic, hence the necessity for increasing activity in the fight against it.

It is indeed a lamentable fact that more money is expended by our state and national authorities to protect our animals than to protect our citizens. The order of things should be reversed and the odds in favor of our citizens increased. It has been well said that the health of its citizens is the greatest asset of any nation.

Over 200,000 children die annually in this country from preventable diseases. This is a monumental crime in most cases and the authorities should speed up in the matter of health conservation and life saving if the young of today are to be given the protection to which they are clearly entitled.

The eating place in which sanitary rules and regulations are reasonably observed is the eating place you should patronize. The other kind is a positive menace to health and the kind you should shun.

The central idea of health authorities should invariably be disease prevention, for it is far easier to prevent disease than it is to cure it, and it costs far less in most cases.

The importance of instruction in sanitary science and personal hygiene in the public and private schools cannot be overestimated. The day will no doubt come when no school in the land will be without such instruction.

The detestable fly will soon make its appearance in our midst. Let’s be armed and ready for it when it does arrive. Remember that it lives in filth and is perfectly contented in filth. Do not put out any inducements for that pest and health menace to hang around your premises this year.

From 150,000 to 200,000 people die in this country every year from tuberculosis. This is an appalling sacrifice of human lies, many of which might be saved by proper treatment. What are we going to do about it? Shall steps be taken under state auspices to help those already victims of that disease and to prevent its spread in Idaho?

What General Gorgas* did from a sanitary standpoint in the Panama canal zone can be done anywhere else on earth if the proper course is taken.

* William Crawford Gorgas – was a United States Army physician and 22nd Surgeon General of the U.S. Army (1914–1918). He is best known for his work in Florida, Havana and at the Panama Canal in abating the transmission of yellow fever and malaria by controlling the mosquitoes that carry these diseases. At the time, his strategy was greeted with considerable skepticism and opposition to such hygiene measures. However, the measures he put into practice as the head of the Panama Canal Zone Sanitation Commission saved thousands of lives and contributed to the success of the Canal’s construction.

Moscow Is Free From Influenza
Quarantine Raised in Last Two Cases and General Ban Will Be Lifted

Moscow has not a single case of influenza today. Dr. W. A. Adair, city health officer, reports the quarantine raised in the last two cases and that, so far as the health officer knows, there is not a case of the disease in town. Dr. Adair fears that the disease may be brought here from other places if the town is thrown “wide open” and requests that visitors from outside towns, be requested to have health certificates if they come here to attend any public entertainment. Dr. Adair said:

“Moscow is now free from influenza, the last quarantine card was taken down a day or two ago. The last four cases were brought here by people contracting the disease while out of town. In view of this fact and the danger of having visitors from other cities, it will be advisable for those wishing to invite outsiders to dances to be given in Moscow, to ask their guests to secure a health certificate dated the day they arrive, or the day of entertainment.”

Housing Conditions
Rev. Martin in Address to Club Women Tells of Needs in Boise – Americanization Plans Discussed.

That Boise has a housing problem and that there are conditions here which need remedying along that line as well as in the tenement districts of New York, was statement made by Rev. Willsie martin, pastor of the First Methodist church, in an address to club women at the Carnegie hall Tuesday afternoon.

The minister stated that it took an influenza epidemic to acquaint him with the conditions, but he found them and he believes a tenement room in a heated building in New York was better than a cold shack of one or two rooms in Boise for living quarters. He described some of the conditions which he had encountered here during his Red Cross work.

The speaker also made a plea for the Americanization of the foreigner by teaching him the English language through public night schools or for others who might with to attend and brighten up on the subjects on which they had become rusty.

In closing he advocated a “festival of citizenship” for Idaho to be held one day each October in which every one who has reached his majority should participate assisted by foreign born who have taken out their naturalization papers. …

High School Notes

Blessed are they who stay after school to write school notes.

Will some one please donate cushions for the seats of the high school?

The juniors and sophomores have claimed that the freshmen should not be treated so well and now they are carrying out some of their threats.

A goodly number of the students have been treated with the vaccine* against taking the flu the past week.

The morale of the high school has improved greatly the last few months and now the boys have been asked to refrain from using bad language. This is a good suggestion, as pure English should be good enough for anyone.

Mrs. Archer gave shorter lessons Wednesday so the students could take time to see “The Surrender of the German Fleet” at the Rialto.

It is understood that Jerome county has been created with Jerome as its county seat. Now why not a high school building? If it were not for the flu the high school room could not hold the students, let alone the cubby rooms used for recitation rooms.

Several of the state legislature are considering pensions for teachers. Most teachers’ pension laws are such that self-respecting teachers do not care to have anything to do with them.

Miss Stephens was absent from school last week on account of being called to the bedside of her sick mother at Springfield, Missouri. She arrived too late to see her mother before she passed away. Miss Stephens has the sincere sympathy of her many friends in her hour of sadness.

Hospital Movement Grows

On last Monday evening a number of our citizens and business men met at the office of Wilburn & Hartshorn to further discuss the matter of a hospital for Jerome. At a previous meeting various committees were appointed who reported Monday evening. Nothing definite was decided upon as to a hospital site, several desirable ones being available.

The association is to be known as the Jerome Hospital association, capitalized at $50,000, the plan being at present to sell $35,000 worth of stock at $1,000 per share.

A great amount of interest was manifest at the meeting, all present being of the opinion that a hospital for Jerome is a necessity and that an earnest endeavor should be made by our citizens to accomplish this end. A meeting is again called for next Monday evening, and an invitation is extended to all those interested to come and help in this work.

Miss Clara Peterson was absent from school a few days this week because of illness. Mrs. Walter Brown substituted for her.

Mrs. Blacker and son Merton expect to leave next week for the upper country, where Mrs. Blackler has accepted a position as teacher for a seven months’ term. The school is some distance beyond Gross, and Mrs. Blackler anticipates a most delightful experience during the warmer months, though at present, and for some little time, we will no doubt see some real snow.

Mrs. R. M. Fairchild departed Saturday for her old home in West Lafayette, Ind., where she expects to visit two or three months. It is her first visit there in 12 years. A party of the city teachers have taken Mrs. Fairchild’s house for the remainder of the school year.

Relatives and friends of W. L. Burton have felt great anxiety for his condition since learning of a serious attack of stomach trouble, which he was suffering. Recent reports, however, state that he is improving and hopes are strong for his recovery. Mr. Burton is with his son Lynn and family in Spokane, and though he assisted in nursing the entire family thru influenza, he escaped the disease.

Miss Katherine Mann has received a letter from her brother, Karl L. Mann, whose home is at Cambridge, Idaho, stating that he is recovering from his recent attack of the flu. Mr. Mann suffered a very serious run of the disease and the heart was badly weakened, but with care he hopes to be about his duties shortly.

Mrs. Lou Otkins departed Tuesday afternoon for her home in Portland, in response to a telegram announcing the serious illness of her husband. …

A baby was born to Mr. and Mrs. Ed Beal of Ola at the hospital on Sunday night, living but a few hours. The parents took the body to Ola for burial.

There is an idea abroad that skunk oil is good for rheumatism, neuralgia, colds, and other ailments. This superstition probably arose from the fact that the Indians and early settlers thought that oils of any animal giving off such a disagreeable odor as the skunk must be good for something. Skunk oil probably is in the same class as rattlesnake oil, which was thought to be useful because the bite of this snake is so poisonous. Indian medicine men appear to have made use of skunk as well as rattlesnake oil along with their incantations. The best trained physicians, however, attribute no medicinal value whatever to these oils. No legitimate use can be made of skunk oil unless for oiling harness or shoes, or for making soap. Nevertheless there is a small demand for it as medicine.

Influenza Fatal In And Near Colfax
Two Women Die of the Disease After Attending Funerals of Others

Colfax, Wash. — The funeral of Mrs. Susan E. Anderson, wife of W. C. Anderson, a farmer, living near Colfax, will be held Tuesday at 1 o’clock p.m., the Rev. Mr. Callender officiating. She is survived by her husband, eight children, the oldest 16 years, and the youngest 14 months of age, who with the father are all ill with influenza; her father, three brothers and three sisters. Her mother died from the disease about two weeks ago.

Mrs. Jennie J. Muntz died at her home at Diamond last night of influenza. A week ago today she went to Spokane to attend the funeral of her uncle, George Huntley, and was stricken with the disease after her return.

She is survived by her husband, E. H. Muntz, r., proprietor of the Diamond Trading company, and three children, age 8, 5 and 3 years. The funeral will be held at Endicott, her former home, at 11:30 Wednesday morning.

Dr. W. A. Adair, city health officer, call the attention of Moscow people to these deaths as a warning that influenza is still just as fatal as ever and that it is in neighboring towns in a dangerous form. Dr. Adair wants to impress upon the people here the absolute need of traveling as little as possible and of trying to avoid having the disease brought here from other places.

Kendrick has another outbreak of influenza, six new cases having developed there in the past few days and there is talk of again closing the schools of Kendrick, which opened but recently after having been closed for a long time. Kendrick escaped the early ravages of the disease, but had a hard siege of it later.

Lift Ban Saturday Night.

The ban may be lifted in Moscow at midnight, Saturday, but this will depend upon conditions in town between now and then and the strict observance of regulations. Kendrick is reported to have 10 new cases instead of six, as reported and in other towns conditions are not good. The greatest danger is from the disease being brought in from other places. Dr. Adair said:

“If there is no outbreak of influenza between now and Saturday the ban on seating in churches and theaters, also on children attending public gatherings, will be lifted Saturday at midnight. Dances may be given with the restriction that out-of-town guests will be expected to have a good health certificate of that date.”

News from Khaki Boys

Lieutenant Otto Stillinger has written to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Stillinger of Moscow. His letter, which is full of interest, follows:

Fontane, France, Dec 23, 1918.

Dearest Mother and Father: Just received one of your letters which came with our back mail and was very glad to hear that you people were well and had not as yet contracted the Spanish influenza. We had quite a spell of that here during the months of October and November.

I read in your letter that you were wondering if I had been at the front, and by now you have probably received my letters from me telling of a few of my experiences while on the firing line. The very evening that Flora was playing cards with you people we were beginning the final battle of the war which was only ended on November 11. The fighting during those memorable days seems like a horrible dream to me, although I remember everything very distinctly. Sleeping near dead men was a mere trifle during those days and killed and wounded men were every day happening.

However, I have slipped back to my old self again and I actually believe if I should find a dead man in my bed it would startle me quite a bit. Everyone says that life at the front changes a man a great deal and though I don’t believe I have changed any I don’t suppose I am capable to judge. Flora will probably think that I have changed a lot, whether for the better or for the worse, of course, I can’t tell.

At the present time I am staying at a French private home and sure have a dandy room with a fireplace and the old lady will give me anything and will do anything for me. She even has milk delivered here every night for me and for a quart I pay about five cents. It is the first real milk I have had since I left my Irish mother so you know how much I enjoy it.

The French village here has a population of 280 and at present we have nearly 500 soldiers billeted here. As day after tomorrow is Xmas the officers here are giving a Xmas tree for all the little French kids in the village. As we are the first American troops to be quartered here they will to have quite a few by Xmas.

At the present time I am in charge of the military police in this place and have a very good solitary cell to throw my drunks in. At the present time I have one in there and expect to have quite a few by Xmas.

Well, I must close now, with the best of love to you both, I am as ever, Your affectionate son, Otto.

Elwin Eastman Coming Home

The following message was received in this city yesterday:

Navy Yard, Philadelphia, 2-3-19
Mrs. Wm. Eastman,
Nezperce, Idaho.

Am in France waiting transportation. Feeling fine. Be back soon. No mail for five months. …

This news not only brings gladness to Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Eastman, parents of this young solder, but to this whole community where Elwin grew to manhood. He joined the U. S. Marines nearly three years ago and has been continuously in the service since, being among the American troops to enter foreign service some months ago. He was stationed in England in the aero service and there contracted influenza and had a severe siege of it, and the above message is the first news received indicating that he had entirely recovered from the malady.

Lyceum Course for Next Winter.

Mrs. M. A. Helwig, representing the Midland Lyceum Bureau, of Des Moines, Iowa, was in our city last week and closed a contract for the return of this course to our community next fall and winter.

This system of popular and educational entertainment is now under the auspices of the high school, and such proceeds as accrue from it go to the school library fund. Such numbers of the present course as flu conditions have permitted here this winter have been quite satisfactory and the attendance has been large. In fact, Nezperce has come to be quite as good a lyceum town as it is a Chautauqua center, and it is safe to predict a successful run for the coming series of entertainments, under the personal direction of Superintendent Skinner of the public schools.

Ex-Winchester Surgeon Dead.

Winchester, Feb. 3. — A. E., Merchant today received word from A. A. Rogers of Eugene, Ore., announcing the death in France on January 1 of Mr. Rogers’ brother, Dr. Elton B. Rogers. The cause of death was pneumonia.

Dr. Rogers was located at Winchester for seven years in the practice of medicine and was widely know throughout the prairie country. For a period he maintained a hospital here for the mill employees. He entered the army service about two years ago and has been in France for many months. …

Dr. Rogers was one of the best known and most highly esteemed practitioners on the prairie, and when he entered the army service he sold his hospital and practice to Dr. J. L. Kelly of Nezperce, who has since conducted the same except during his recent service in the army as a surgeon with the rank of captain.

“The Medical and Scientific Conceptions of Influenza”

The 1918 search for the cause and vaccine.

source: Stanford University,
— — —


Some serums were a “convalescent plasma”: blood plasma extracted from an animal or human patient who has “convalesced” or recovered from infection with a particular disease.

— — —


Many vaccines were developed and used during the 1918–1919 pandemic. The medical literature was full of contradictory claims of their success; there was apparently no consensus on how to judge the reported results of these vaccine trials. … The most widely used, and historically the most interesting, was the vaccine produced by Edward C. Rosenow of the Mayo Clinic’s Division of Experimental Bacteriology.48,49 Rosenow argued that the exact composition of a vaccine intended to prevent pneumonia had to match the distribution of the lung-infecting microbes then in circulation. For that reason, he insisted that the composition of his vaccine had to be frequently readjusted. … The Mayo Clinic distributed Rosenow’s vaccine widely to physicians in the upper Midwest. … McCoy arranged his own trial of the Rosenow vaccine produced by the Laboratories of the Chicago Health Department. He and his associates worked in a mental asylum in California where they could keep all subjects under close observation. They immunized alternate patients younger than age 41 on every ward, completing the last immunization 11 days before the local outbreak began. Under these more controlled conditions, Rosenow’s vaccine offered no protection whatsoever. McCoy’s article appeared as a one-column report in the December 14, 1918, edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)
