FEVER AT INSANE HOSPITAL
Eighteen Cases of Typhoid at Insti

LINCOLN The appeal of Superin

for the insane to the State Board
of Public Lands and Buildings for as
sistance disclosed the fact that the
institution has a serious epidemic of
typhoid fever which has infected nine
teen persons, who are now isolated,
with the possibility that many more
of the 600 patients may have received
the bacilli into their systems. Dr.
Greene said that it is difficult to de
termine just how wide-spread the
ravages of the disease will be because
of the fact that it takes two weeks for
the incubation of the bacilli, when
once they have entered the human
system. The state board has authoriz
ed the use of every possible means
in fighting the disease.
