Women Supposed
To Keep Influenza
From Us Catch It
Vacations in New York City proved
disastrous to three members of the
women's staff of the Health Service
and physical education department,
when they contracted influenza while
visiting there.
Dr. Emeth Schutz, of the University
Health Service, is now a patient at

the New York Medical Center, where
she has been confined for several
days. At present, it is not known
how long she will have to remain
there.
Miss Ruth Bloomer of the physical
education department and Mrs. Eu-
gene Power, of the Health Service
brought from New York City cases of
influenza from which they are now
recovering. It is expected that they
will be able to resume their duties
very soon.
New York City has not monopolized
the influenza supply, however, for
such illness delayed Miss Dorothy
Beise of the Physical Education De-
partment from returning from her
home in Minnesota until today.
