"Day Develops No New Cases" - The Daily Ledger, Tacoma, Washington, 4 Nov 1918

Health Officers Cheered at the Letup of Influenza

With not one new case of influenza reported to the health department Monday morning, the city officials are cheerful in the hope that the epidemic is about over.

Although this condition of optimism prevails here, Dr. T D Tuttle, state health officer at Seattle, in telephone conversation with Miss Edith I. Moody Monday morning, insisted on everybody in the state wearing a mask. No formal order, however has been issued by the state health board to this effect and Dr R D Wilson, Tacoma health officer, is not making any new rules in face of the favorable outlook.

At the health office conditions are assuming the normal. CW O'Flyne, quarantine officer, after a week's tussle with influenza is back on the job. Miss Edith I Moody, statistician of the health department had nearly two weeks of flu experience, but is back. All others in the department are now free from the disease and eager to a fight against the spread of the epidemic.

Hospital Still Short

The emergency hospital is still a busy place. Three new cases were taken in Sunday, but four were released. There is still a serious shortage of help at the hospital, although several public spirited person have been volunteering their services. Mrs. Hiram Argue, wife of Dr. Argue has been a faithful assistant to Miss Rose Peterson the city nurse. Harry Pelletier has been volunteering in the evenings for services as intern and has put in several mights until midnight.

Four of the regular staff of assistants at the church hospital are now ill, including J D Montgomery, the male nurse who at the end of his first week in the place refused to take any pay for his services.

The following deaths from pneumonia were reported from Saturday to Monday:"

16 names, including Mrs. Alice Raby, 37, 1651 So 35th."
