Cases Are Too Plentiful,
Dr. Forsythe of the University
Health Service staff said yesterday
that the rumored epicemic of
mumps is more than a rumor.
There have been twelve cases of
the illness in the last ten days,
which, lie says, is too ihany.
"The epidemic was probably
started by some unrecognized per-
son with swelled jaws walking
about the campus," he said. The in-
cubation period for humps is about
three weeks and if the epidemic is
to be serious it will probably break
out around the fifteenth or tewn-
tieth of this month.
There have been two cases in
the last three dlays which seems to
indicate that the disease is check-
ed, however, nothing is yet certain
in that respect.
