State Board Qi ea'th Urges
Precaution Against "lu"
Thanksgiving Services Sched,
uled in Churches; Many
Thanksgiving celebrations should
be restricted as far as possible, says
a state board of health notice received by City Health Commissioner
Manning Wednesday morning. Many
celebrations are planned in the city.
"See that Thanksgiving celebrations are restricted as much as
possible so as to prevent another
flare-up (If influehza," read the notice.
"I take it that this means football
games as well as union meetings in
churches," said Dr. Manning.
"I hope it will not be necessary to
restrain public gatherings as we did,
hut if a fare-up of the influenza
comes, that will be dons.
Seventy New Cases.
"We have from fifty to seventy
new cases of influenza every day.
There are few deaths-three Tuesday and fourteen in the last four
days. The number of cases is still
Churches have announced many
union services today.
The day promises to be featured by
even a greater spirit of thanks than
he seasiin usually brings.
Slimpler dinners, with more atten'
tion to the spirit of the day, will re.
sult since tho war is over and the
safety of the boys lu service is as-.ured, in te opinion of ministers
who will preach Thanksgiving sermons. The sermons will deal with
the coming of peace and the need of
reconstruction to follow.
'ubilic services will be held in'
churches here and there over the
city, various groups of congregations
unitling. To each mjpeting the publie generally Is invited.
Complying with the request of
Lieutenant-Colonel Wuest that army
men remain at the post for Thanks giving dinner, arrangements have
been made through patriotic clubs,
churches and lodges for a variety of
entertainments this evenig for sol diers. The army cooks pan some thing special for the boys, and it
seemed to the commanding officers
a good thing for them to remain at
the fort during the day.
Parties for Soldiers.
Fred C. Williams, executive secre tary of the War Camp Community
Service, which has charge of social
affairs for men in uniform, announces
a game party on. the first floor of

fifty baskets to sick persons, each
basket containing a chicken and
