AMONG THE STUDENTS
SIX NEW OASES HAVE DE
VELOPED IN PAST WEEK.
Statement Read in Glasses This
Morning Regarding Action of
Students Compulsory Vaa-
oination Is Possible
Six new eases of smallpox in
the past week. This is the rec
ord at the university for the, past,
.seven days. A month ago yes
terday the first student to bo at
tacked by the disease "was re
leased from the isolation hos
pital. Since then four or five
more eases have been discovered.
Two other cases were discovered
shortly after the first ease de
veloped. During the last week
the disease has. broken out seri
ously and the jmivprsity authori
ties have adopted measures by
which they hope to check the
disease and prevent , further
Unless the measures which Dr.
Clapp"and Dr. Vailo havo takon
fail to produce results there wjll
be a compulsory vaccination of
all the students of the university.
This disease seems to havo in
fected most of the men who have
a. habit of frequenting the loeker
and dressing rooms at the gym
nasium. ITere great care has
been taken to prevent tho spread
of the disease and disinfection
has been often.
This morning the following
statement, which was signed by
Div Clapp. and Dr. Waitc and
approved Jy Chancellor Avery,
was read in all the class rooms
before the students:
'Six, new cases of smallpox
have- developed within tho post
week; therefore, it becomes nee-
essary to warn students onco-i
more of the danger to all who
nave not oeen successtuiiy vac-
dents who have not been suc
cessfully vaccinated as indicated
above should arrange for the
same immediately in 'order,, to in
sure protection " for, themselves
and for the general student body.
."The real danger in smallpox
lies -not in the" severe typical
cases 'that arc isolated early, but
in tho mild cases that may never
be discovered thereby exposing
to -possible infection all students
who come in contact with them.
On this account, and also because
the early symptoms arc so often
mistaken for grippo or somo other
similar disease, the following in
formation copcerning the dis
ease is offered:
"Tho period of incubation of
smallp'ox runs from seven to fif
teen days, TIiq initial stage is
often ushered ' in with chills',
fover, severe headache, back
ache, vomiting and oftonti?nes
with symptoms of a 'cold.7
Shortly after this preliminary at
tack f;ho eruption appears. Stu:
dents are vory strongly urged to
consult a physician at onco and
remain under his care until tho
i)aturo of the illness is deter
mined, 'AH instructors and Btu:
dents ore requested to1 report- im
mediately to Dr. Clapp any stu
dent having a suspicious looking
eruption. Compliance with the
above request will undoubtedly
stamp out the disease and avoid
the necessity of compulsory gen
eio Miceination, which must be.
ri'sirled to if the above men
tioned plan fails to cheek the
- 'Dr. Waite may be nonsuited
from J)::) to 10:00' a. m.; and
Dr. Clapp from 11:00 to 11 :J10
a. m. and 2:.10 to 3 :00 p. m.

Seven in Hospital.
At the:, present time there 'arc
seven university students in the
isolation hospital. Six of these
students have been taken to the
isolation during the past' week.

time still confined and Jhauncr
was released- Saturday. Channcr
was -released so shortly after be
ing taken to the hospital on ac
count of being nearly recovered
from the smallpox before being
taken, to, the isolation hospital.
He was on the campus the entire
time that he was sick and was
not confined to Ins room at all
Tho lightness of the disease
and the ease with which it may
be mistaken' for some other slight
eniption, caused little attention
to 'bfr taken in checking. jL This
is a difficulty with which the au
thorities have to cope, and yes
terday1 Dr. Clapp stAted that no
compulsory ruling wpuld be
made at the present time, and
that the situation is not at all
serious; but the disease must not
be allowed to continue, and must
be stamped oiit or compulsory

The track team try-outs that -were
hold on tho athletic field
Saturday were very' saticfactory.
While nothing' sensational was
done, the results in all tho events'
showed that Nebraska may yot
bo able to do something On the
track this spring. Guy Reed won
all three of the dashes, and al
though his records wero good,
Lheyjire hardly good enough to
win against Nebraska's competi
tors this year.
Captain Burke is not in good
form yet and will probably bo :
able to make much better time
by the iimo that tho first meet is
pulled off. He and Reed will be
the entries in the 4'iO this year.
Clark and McGowan showed up--well
in the distance runs, and
Lindstrom surprised everyone in
the pole vault. 'Lindstrom is a
freshman, however, and cannot bo
enteri'd in the big meets this
year. He should make a good
showing on the freshman team.
