Tlic ''Spanish Flu." ,
Since our experience with the
"llu" last spiing we have fre-1
qucritly been imkcd "What h it
lihe?" Wo have never felt
eapablp of giving an adequate
definition, hut after interviewing 1
Bert Bennchoff, R. M. Kirk audi
several other sufferers, we have
concluded that the following lines
di'scribe the "flu" concisely:
When your hack Ib broke and
i your eyes are blurred, and your
shin-bones knock and your tongue
. ia furred, and your tonsils squeak
and your hairnets dry, and you're
, doggone sure you're goin' to die,
I but you're scared you wont and
afraid you will, just crawl into
bed and have your chill and pray
the Lord to aee you through, for
you've got the flu, boy, you've
got the llu.
When your toes curl up and
your nelL goes iiat, anil you re
twice as mean as an old torn cat,
and your life ia one long dismal
curse, and food lames liKeuharo
boiled hoarse; when your od back
aches and your beau's a-buzz anu
nothing at all is just like it was,
with deepest regret wo say to
you yov'vo got the flu, boy,
you've got the llu.
What is it like, this Spanish
flu? Ask us, brother: for wo'v
cun through. JL is by chance
born of despair: it lons vom

you may get well; doctors say 'tiu
