HeAds of the various commands_,are responsible for the presence of the mqn at the infirmary. Dr. A, W. Carnes, City Health Officer, said yesterday that Dallas has remftined in such a remtialkable condition of he Ith chiefly becauise of tip rare and attention give)re theil' colds by infected people. The chief danger of influenza, grip, ' la grippe, or.anything you want to call it, is the'ease with Which complications set iii," Dr. Carnes said. "Pneumonia is the mtost fiequent sequel' to grip, but often mastolditis and eye trouble follow the disease. It is highly desirable that tJie people keep up th eitr viligant watch 1n synptoms of the disease and keep it from endangering the health of our soldiers." DoctoTs are still,,urged to report all cases of grip to the city, as well as the discharged patients.. Dr. Carnes is keep= ing a close record of the prevalence afid behavior of the disease and will compile statistical statements of the condition in- Dallas duriing the epidemic scare.

S. 4.., i. 4 n "- fl -. u i q q The actiots of agents of the city of Dallas= in the various vice raids.and in the campaign against.-.vice" ilfWt11 e ltof D'Iallas have'been at the n staie e.of altliorized representatives thOc;Gov eminient of the United States.?i'eedlng thie attitude of -the city agtnits::i toward the campaign representatibbtlihavee been made by:these relite ietitative= f the Governmentt that grosslm irni; conditions existed in Dallas. -These ateminents were made by Maor Joe E Lawthey:yesterday. -Varibus conferences have been held between the Mayor and representatives -oft:-the Government: SomeÂ~of the charges1 against the morality of conditions in Dallas were made in these conferences. Others have been made in letters to M1\ayor Lawther, which are now ii - possession. "We have not gone nearly so far as we have been urged to go by these representatives," Mayor Lawther cone tinued. ':Everything that hasbeen done has bqen in the way of co-Operation with the Government and the representations they have made have beef, very grave and strong. Does Not Believe City Immoral; I have never, and do ot now, believe that Dallas is an i moral city, nor do I believe that there is the flagrant vice conditions here now or that there have ever been here, as has been chprged., In interviews with these representatives and in the correspondence I have had with governmental agenciesI have maintained this position, but, at the.ame time, these conditions have been brought to my attention as existing, and as Mayor Of the city I felt It my- duty to co-operate With the.GoVernment. Not 'believing that bad conditions did exist, at the sametime I could ee where no particular, harm would be done by acting against vice. As to the State law by which people have been held I will say that the agents of the city, as I understood it. have hot gone half as far as they could go under the wording of that law. "At a conference between the represelatatives of the Government, the State and th city it was decided that action should be concerted. As a c.nsequence, we have co-operated.. It should -be pointed out, however, that Vi the ma'h the arrests have been made by a Federal agent, in the employ of the Department. of Justice,- the city officers only co-operating and assisting. it is customary among peace officers to -Co-operate with other peace officers where the request is made." Says Pollee Make Arrests., -When aske yesterday afternoon if any arrests have been made at his instance on reports of cases of venereat disease, County Health Officer WV. M. Hale Jr. said: "No. The police make the arrests.". 'Dr. Hale was then asked if anydases are quar~ ntined other than by pacing in jail. I-e said he knew of o the cases placed in jail. When asked" t-.t What he has had to do with the e - forcement of the law with regard to venereal disease, he said that all he has to do,with it is seeing that blood tests and examinations are made following arrest. He was asked if it is possible to make all such tests promptly without holding suspected persdns in jail because of a rush. He replied that tests a re made on the day of arrest except when the arrest is made at night, and then that the tests are made the following day. Reports on the tests ate made within twelve hours, he said. Dr. Hale has ieet -in office only a little more than a month.
