This exciting article deals primarily with the social and economic community costs and effects of the influenza pandemic in Cincinnati, Ohio. It discusses social agencies and their work responding to community needs in the wake of the pandemic. "At the present time, relief is being expended at the rate of approximately $1,000 per week to 150 families. Social service care must, of course, go hand in hand with the medical treatment. It is our aim to reconstruct socially each family, as far as that is possible, by the time the patient is well physically, so that the case when dismissed is cured in the highest sense of the term."
