With the subsidence of the epidemic of Influenza the attention of health officers Is directed to pneumonia, bronchitis and other diseases of the respiratory system which regularly csuse a Urge number of deaths, especially during the winter season.

Although the worst of the epidemic is over, there will continue to be a large number of scattered cases, mauy of them mild and unrecognized, watch will be danger spots to be gusr!el against." The Surgeon General likened the present situation to that after s Sjreut Are, saying, "No tire chief who understand his business stops playing the hose on the charred debris as soon us the flames and visible tire have dls uppeared.
