Clubs and lodges have postponed meetings lndefinitely, and every place where perseons might rather and spread the disease has been closed. Tomorrow there willI be but few churches open for services within' a 210 -mile radles of the city. Almost every Protestant church will he closed and in some commuiites the Roman CathoUo churches will not open. although a general order to this effect from Cardinal OConnell had not been received up to last night. In several towns sod cities In the State. notably Brookline. Maiden and Quincy, public funerals have been forhidden by the local Bo~rda of Health. In Brookline the order is molt stringent. It forbids persons mteettng in homes where there is a caee of the disease and orders every church and place of amusement closed until Oct. 1. Every hospital in Boston and Ito suburbs Is crowded with Influensa and pne~umonia patients. and many of them were compelled yesterday to refuse to admit any more. The scarcity of nurses Is must keenly felt. At the Maasachusetts General Htospital It was said yesterday that If 1.5 more nurses could be procured. 10 patients could be cared f or. 32: Nurses Sick This Is true of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. where 33 nurses are off duty, suffering from the malady. An Idea of the seriousness of the epdemic can he seen In the'case of the Htomeopathic Hospital. which has refused admission to 469 Influonza patlnts. In the cities and towns eurroundint the city,. the conditions are almoet as bad. Temporary hospitals 'have been opened, but the lack of nurses and physicians Is now the chief handicap. An appeal has been made for alds for nures. The department stores who have trained girl clerks in first aid methode, have been aked to relieve workers for this cause. These helpers. health olfitala say. can ant as auxiliary nurses, and in many oasea can be as useful as fully trained nurses. In Cambridge most of the school teachers have volunteered. 500 to' Aid Nurse-Protestant Churches Closed Scores of the school teachers of Cembridge, released from their leaching detles by the closing of the Sty'sschools because of the epidemic, have volunteered to aid the nurses of the city In fighting the grip. So practical does Superintendent o'f Schools Fitzgerald think the, plan to he, that he has called a meeting for this morning at 10 o'clock in the 1Latin School hal, The 300 teachers in -the city are requested to attend and. all who can will voiunteer for assistedot nurses. Only the- younger and strong, teachers will be asked to volunteer. Automobiles have been loanea to. the Board of Health, and It is planned, to use them to lake tea nurses fwliftiy from case to case. At each, case "a teacher will be left with thorough Instructions on what to do by the nurse. Thus the whole city will- be completely covered if the scheme works eatisfactortly, and fromn the results today. it hag been an, unqualified sucoess. The schools of Cambeidge wilt remain closed another week at. least.. tart of the Protestant churches are slosed-The -movies have also temporarily suspended.
