Flu" Lid Again Clamped
On All Public Gatherings
Ailioriiies Rale This On Ac
ccsst Of Sadden Increase
' In Number Of Cases.
By proclamation of Mayor Walter E.
Key, Dr. 0. B Miles, city physician
nd Frank 8. Ward, of tho city council
chairman of the committee on health
nd police, Salem is a closed town an
far i all public gatherings are con
cerned and will remain so until the
rayor proclaims otherwise.
At a mooting held yesterday after
xoon. between the city authorities and
CTrral prominent physicians '.of the
eity, it was decided on account of tho
rapid increase- in the number of roses
f influenza to take this radical action.
By closing the town Is meant that
bo public meeting such as schools, ser
vices at church or moving picture then
ires will be permitted nor Vill pool
playing, or congregating around enrd
tables in public or in lodge rooms be
permitted. Dances are also tabu.
In a discussion of what should be
done to stay the sproad of the dis
ease, the physicians at the mooting
aid that unless soma action was taken
t once, tho demands on doctors would
be Buch that many urgent cases would
ot receive necessary medical atten
tion. It was the opinion of the phyid
iann that tho only thing that would
prevent the spread of tho influenza was
to forbid public gatherings of all kinds.
Will Change Events.
Coming at the time of year when
aiany social events were planned the
baa on public gatherings will change
affairs considerably in Halem and vicin
ity. Among tho events that will neces
sarily bo postponed is tho quarterly in
spection of the four Oregon thiard
companies In Salem and of Company M,
which wan to have been held this
evening. Tuesday night was the duto
for the Company M dance and for tho
New Year's affair of the country club.
Another event prominent in Ihn so
cial circle is the indefinite postpouo
tent of tho annual banquet and in
itiation of the Cherrians, scheduled
for tho Marion hotol on the evening
cf January 7.
It Saturday seems to have been a
day when many of tho stores found
themselves short of help on account o(
the number who hint taken the influ
enza and who were unnbln to continue
work during tho day. This shortage, ot
kelp condition is noticeable today.
It is estimated thnt at present there
is from 150 to 200 rases of influents
In tho city and that about (15 housei
re under tho modified quarantine.
Closing Indefinite
Aa the proclamation reads', this clos
ed condition of tho city will bo in effcel
ntil tho city authorities land phy
sicians deem it advisable to once again
permit public gatherings.
The closing order of Mayor Keyen
b a follows:
Whorens Tho influenza is more pre
valent in tho City of Halem than it hut
leratoforo been, notwithstanding th
isny precautionary measures hereto
fore taken, and,
Whores: the physicians and people in
etnso touch with the situation, deem
It imperative that a closing order should
kff made effective forthwith, sow,
It ia therefore oidorod, that all
schools, theatres, lodges, churches, mov-
injr picture shows, and dances be clos
ed, beginning December 30, 1918, .it

Monroe doctrine and freedom of thn
seas, and to protoct herself, Daniels told

felt the request for ten drcaduaughta,
six eruisers, ton scout cruisers and 130

Representation In 3 Wars
F. B. Southwick claims to be the
only man in Salem who represents
three wars and if any man can beat
his record, he ig willing to hear about
it. Mr. Southwick bases his claim on
the following:
Mf. Southwick. himself is a member
of the Crand Army of the Republic.
He went into the Civil war from Wis
consin as a volunteer m the infantry,
served his 16 months and arrived at
his home in June of 1866: He was 18
years old when he enlisted. That is
war No. 1.
His oldest son Albert M. Southwick,
volunteered in the Spanish American
war and served with the Second Ore
gon in company K. As all know who
are familiar with the fighting of the
2d Oregon, when there was fighting to
be done in the Philippine islands, tho
Oregon boys were there and Aioert
Southwick was in it all. That is waJ
No. 2.
Ralph W. Southwick, the youngest
son of F. B. Southwick, went into the
service in the present world's war
from Arizona and wag assigned to a
machine gun company and his service
has been with the machine gun divis
ion in France. His last letter from
over there wag dated Nov. 25 in which
he stated that as soon as mustered out
he would return to Oregon. That is war
No. 3.
- The Civil war veteran ig now won
dering whether when the Southwick
family reunion takes place, if there is
any household in the community that
can muster veterans of the last three
wars of tho United States.
