In oculated with germs of some terrible disease which, even though it did not destroy him, would make his children blind, crippled, or something of the sort? Can you Imagine such things? I have seen them all " Corporal Jones wrote his letter on the stationery of the Hotel de Paris, and he asks his mother to send cards to several French families he has met.

' Tho plan to havo five fully equipped American field armies in Hurope by July 1, necessitating the inducting of 2,700,000 men into the army serslce. disclosed today by General March, will bring many big calls for men to the lo cal hoards In this city during the ensu ing months. Kstlmates, based on the oroportlons of the new registration, from which the majority of the new men will he taken, gles Pennsylvania a quota of approxl. mately 207,000 men to be called to the colors to carry out the man-power pro gram If this 1h carried out In accordance with tho percentage of registrations, the State will furnish Uncle Sam's forces with a trifle more than secn full fight ing divisions. If the cllglbles were seg regated Into all-Pennsylvania units. Of that body Philadelphia could lay clafhi to one full division and a brigade of Infantry two regiments. General March yesterday stated that here would be in existence by July 1, 1019, nn army of 4,800,000, or nearly five field armies with an average strength of nearly l.ooo.ooo men each. At present. General March said, there are 3,200,000 men under arms. It Is planned to call 2,700,000 addi tional men in the new draft between now and next July, which, added to the 3, 200,000, will make a grand total, with allowances for casualties and rejections, of 4,800,000. There is a general opinion among army officers that the newly-summoned selectn will all be in Europe by the lat ter part of July, meaning that the calls for the 2.700,000 men must be started without delay. General Crowder estimates that half of the 2.700,000 men to be called will be obtained from tho registrants of nlniteen to twenty years and thirty-two to thirty six years.

"At once It placed the United States In the lead and we may now feel as sured that where our flag files it will be loved and respected, for 'America In this war seeks no material profit or aggrandizement of any kind.

Raines Disarmament Question In opposition to that section of opin ion which wants to see tho Austrian proposals rejected out (if hand, there Is a growing Insistence on the necessity of Issuing a reply which will give tho German war lords no opportunity of rnllvlne their people. The Westminster I,. ..- . i..i. ..i.i. ,.t iv,t simply refers back to his own utter nncea. tho Governments of tho Entente have not yet spoken with the same clear ness and fullness, and that thero is everything to gain by a. united joint declaration. The basis of that declara tion, according to the Gazette, would be dlfarmament. "The only fruitful question which can be put to the Prussian militarists Is, will they disarm? That and nothing else Is the test of the extermination of Prussian militarism. That alone, with the necessary safeguards, is its own guarantee, and there Is no other founda tion in which a league of nations can bo built." The Manchester Guardian and London Star nrguo strongly for the view that the Allies can so present the case to Austria that her desire to quit the war will be greatly Increased, her an tagonism to Germany stiffened, her re luctance to send further re-enforcements to the French front deepened. "Or," says the Guardian, "they may make such nn answer as will throw Austria back In despair Into the Ger man arms." This point of view is dismissed as "the fear of a small and timid minority" by the Northcllffe papers, which de clare that a fiat rejection of the Austrian proposals "such ns has just been given by President Wilson" cannot drive Aus tria back into the arms of Germany he cause she Is already in them, and there Is no reason to suppose, she has any Intention of leaving them. Though noth lng( can yet be predicted with certainty, it 'is (he opinion of the best judges, whom your correspondent has been able to consult, that tho Entente Govern ments will agree to the policy of a united reply which, while refusing to enter a. conference on the lines sug gested by the Austrian note, will leave the door open for further proposals based on the acceptance of certain es sential principles necessary to a stable peace.

The balance on, hand; not Committee Gives Rules to Prevent Disease Spread The Philadelphia Tuberculosis Committee today made public these recommendations to prevent spread of Spanish Influenza: "When obliged to cough or sneeze always hold a. handkerchief, paper napkin or fabric of some kind be fore the face. Spanish Influenza, as well as tuberculosis germs, are communicated by promiscuous sneezing. "Sterilize dishes nnd silverware after using. "Uso Individual drlnklnfr cups a well as Individual towels In homes nnd offices particularly -when some member of tho family or working force has tho slightest suggestion of a cold." Spanish Influenza, which developed re cently among sailors and marines In the Philadelphia Navy Yard, has spread to the civilian population of the downtown section, according to Director Doctor Krusen, of the Department of Health. One sailor Is dead of Influenza, pre sumably of the Spanish form. Doctor Krusen said thero was no oc casion for alarm over tho spread of the disease downtown. Tho cases wero not numerous and very few were severe enough to require hospital service. Tho Municipal Hospital hBB been made ready to receive Spanish Influenza sufferers. Dies In Naval Hoipltal The victim was a sailor stationed at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. He died early today at the United States Naval Hospital, according to announcement by Chief Surgeon Pickerel!. The disease continued to spread among tho sailors today, Doctor Plck crell said, and more sufferers were be ing treated at the hospital. Ho said nearly 400 sailors and marines were being treated at the Naval Hospital and at tho Leaguo Island Hospital, Doctor Pickeroll said It had not been (established whether the sailor, whose aeatn occurrea, was a victim or apanisn Influenza. Death was due to Influenza, he said, but whether or not It was the Spanish disease was not known. He- said every effort Is being made to check the spread of the disease by isolation of those who havo already fallen victims. t Many additional cases were reported today from the navy yard. Doctor Plck erell said he had no authority to speak of conditions at the navy yard. It Is understood, however, that several hun dred sailors and marines are in the hos pital there, although information rela tive to the spread of tho disease was withheld by authorities at the navy yard hospital. An appeal for the observance of ordl. nary rules of sanitation to prevent the spread of Spanish influenza In Phila delphia was made today by the Phila delphia tuberculosis committee. This was done at tho suggestion of Surgeon General Gorgas, who has asked the committee's co-operation In check ing an oiseases mat in nny way influ ence the production of war material. According to General Gorgas the de- siructiveness or tne miluenza germ in France and England was for a time a limiting factor In the output of muni tion plants. in calling on pnuaaeipnians to aid In everv wav nosslble In the nreventlnn nf an epidemic that will in any way re- inrn tne country s war program. It. N. Whaley, secretary of the committee, said: "A recurrence at this time of such an epidemio as the scourge of grippe mat swept American twenty years ago would be a tragedy." It is estimated thero are now more than 1000 cases of the disease In the city. Phislclans today wore kept busy answering calls to homes where It was feared some member of the family was stricken, and in this way many cases arc being discovered before the viftlms havo a chance to ciiculate and spread the disease. Shipyard Take Precautions Fears that the epidemic of Spanish In- 'fluenza, wh4ch Is sweeping the Atlantic seaboard, may cripple the shipyards led Colonel Philip S. Doane, head of the health and sanitation section of the fleet corporation, today to determined efforts to check tho scourage. "It 1b quite possible that the epidemic was started by Huns sent ashore by bocho submarine commanders," .said Colonel Doane today. "We know thnt men have been ashore from German sub marines. It would be easy for one of these Germans agents to turn loose Spanish Influenza germs In a theatre or some other place where largo numbers of persons are assembled, "As yet the scourage has not obtained a grip on the eastern shipyards, and It is the mission of the health and sanita tion section to see that It does not. League Island Navy Yard, the Charles town Navy Yard at Boston and the naval training camp on the Great Lakes have been placed under rigid quaratlne. To have the scourge gain a grip In the ship, yards would likely prove disastrous to the shipbuilding program, and we havo sent warnings to all shipyard officials."
