Health Service Is Taxed To Limit
While Class Attendance
Is On Decrease
More than 500 cases of severe
colds or mild influenza were listed
last night in a Daily check-up of
fraternities and sororities and at
least 100 students were known to
have gone home and placed them-
selves under the care of their fam-
ily physicians.
With fraternity anc sorority
members constituting about one
fourth of the entire student body,
the possibility was indicated of at
least 2,000 respiratory infections on
the campus of sufficiently serious
nature to confine those students to
their beds.
Classes Ar Smaller
Despite statements by Health
Service officials that the epidemic
is on the wane, classes yesterday
were noticeably more decimated
than at any time previous,
some of them reporting less
than fifty per cent attend-
ance. Beds in the Health Serv-
ice . are still filled, and Health
Service doctors were still paying an
abnormal number of room calls.
Dr. Albert Kerlikowske, chief resi-
dent physician at the University
Hospital, reported this morning
that the hospital was caring for
30 students as against 12 reported
Dr. Kerlikowske also reported
that 50 nurses from the staff of 600
wvere confined to their beds with
influenza, and that more than 15
of t .#.,doctors and 15 of the
hospital's employes' were likewise
suffering from the epidemic.
Dispensary calls at the Health
Service infirmary continued heavy
yesterday, requiring students to
wgit an hour or more before see-
ing a physician. Dr.. Margaret
Bell, one of the health Service staff
of doctors, was advising girls run-
ning mild cases of influenzato re-
turn to their home towns where
more adequate care would be
Other Schools Close

showed that 19 schools have al-
ready been forced to close, includ-
ing four of the Western Confer-

burgh, Washington and Jefferson,
