Gauze masks for use by nurses and
attendants of University influenza pa
tients have been made by tbe dozen
during the past week by a group of fac

or quadruple thickness of gauze made
to cover the nose and mouth and sup
plied with four strings at tbe back to
secure the mask in place.
A noticeable spread of the disease

those afflicted with influenza lias per
haps been due to lack of the simple pre
caution of keeping the mouth and nose

masks and are liable to !>•■ accosted by

Allen have expressed their willingness
to make any number of the masks as
they are needed.
