As Councilman Halvorsen, and Craig are out of the city, and John son may be attending a convention in Portland, it Is possible a quorum will not be present at the meeting.

One section of this law provides for free vaccination of persons desir ing protection against this disease. Im mediate Immunization Is advised by health authorities. City Health Officer R. E. Pomeroy will accommodate school children de siring vaccination between the hours of 9 to 10 a. m. and 1 to 2 p, m every day, at his office ln the Oregon build ing. Between the hours of 10 a. m. to A a. m., and 4 to 6 p. m., school health officer will vaccinate the stu dents at Dr. Pomeroy's office. At the special session of the 'Salem board of public Instruction, Friday night, resolutions were adbpted re questing that parents of pupils attend ing Salem school co-operate with the board in complying with regulations Issued by the state board of heattn combatting the growth of epidemic smallpox. In a recent letter to clerks of school boards, the state health board callec attention to the Increasing number of smallpox cases, the existence which warranted precautionary action being taken. This letter called attention to the stute law, which requires that dur ing epidemics, teachers and pupils at tending public schools must be vao- nated or be restrained from attending such schools. At the Friday night meeting, the lo cal board gave consideration of the fact that there are now 15 cases of the disease in and near Salem, but as most of these had arisen outside of the Bchools It was decided to avoid clos ing the school and If possible to render the enforcement of sterner measures unnecessary. To this end, the Salem school board Is sending a letter to guardians and heads of families, asking that school attendants be vaccinated and assuring the parents that the board is doing ev erything in its power to bring about a reasonable observance of the law. Should the t eDldemlc continue its spread due to the lack of vaccination, the schools will probably be closed. That paragraph of the state law which permits pupils to remain out of school, if, in the Interests of public safety, they refuse to be vaccinate, w generally regarded as. being spineless concession to the antl-lmmunlzers and dllly-dalliers who would adopt the bol shevik attitude of "I must have my way or I will Interfere wtih education al processes, other phases of progres sive national life." In the militarized forces of the Uni ted States, vaccination has proven ef ficient In reducing and obviating epi demic, despite the fact that members of these forces worked and lived under all condition. In lmmmunizlng troops. It was commonly observed that those who had been vaccinated previously, suffered little Inconvenience from the "takes" of the vaccine. Many men who had been previously vaccinated even later than the seven-year period were found to be practically Immune to the disease. On the other hand it was readily noticeable that effects of "take" or reaction upon the previously unvacclnated nian was much greawr than the comparative effect upon a previously unlmniunlzed child. Aside from the fact that vaccination Immun izes against smallpox, local health au thorities state that.observatlon and re search has proven that the unvacclnat ed Individual transmits the disease (through clothing apd personal eon tact) much more readily than can an Individual who has been vaccinated.
