'Assured by his special health com-'
mittee that the influenza masks should
be worn if the health of the students
of the University is to be maintained,
President Harry B. Hutchins request-
ed yesterday that all students and
members of the faculty continue wear-
ing the masks. This should be done
until the epidemic is stamped out,
says a letter received from the Uni-
versity hospital authorities. The com-
munication follows:
Urges Use of Masks
To the President of the University:
The special health committee ap-
pointed by you to consider measures
for the controlling of the influenza
epidemic advised, as a result of their
first conferende, the wearing of a face
mask. Previous to this time the mask
] had been worn by every one in the
University hospital for a period of
two weeks. This experience led us to
recommend their general use in the
Jniversity. Further experience of the
staff of the University hospital' has
been such as to make it seem advis-
able to submit a report to you. The
hospital has cared for over two hund-
red cases qf this disease in its most
virulent form. The meibers of the
staff have accordingly been exposed
many hours every day to the infection
and in spite of this fact none of the
doctors, with possibly one exception,
has come down with the disease. They
have all faithfully worn the mash.
The medical students, who have worn
the mask at the hospital, have also
been exposed; notwithstandi ig this,
but two of them have contracted the
We consider the observed disre-
gard of the order concerning the wear-
ing of masks in classes as a very ser-
ious neglect. While the disease is on
the decline here, it is sufficiently sev-
ere to justify this simple precaution
for the mutual protection of all, es-
pecially since the epidemic may recur
as it has done in other. places. We
know that the disease spreads by drop-
lets that pgss from one person to an-
other during talking, coughing and
sneezing, and that the simple matter
of wearing a mask as ordered is a
