'''' , , , T COMPULSORY VACCINATION ORDER Of THE MONTIES PRECAUTION JMUST BE TAKEISU WITHIN TWO. DAYS THIEE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS DREAD DISEASE AND DRASTIC MEASURES ARE ' v TAKEN TO CHECK IT "Within, a few days a certifl- cato of vaccination or permit will bo roquired for all students attending university olasses. Stu-' donta may be vaccinated today from 9 to 12 a. m. and 2 to 5 p. m. University womon will bo vaccinated in tho woman's study room in University Hall, and tho men in 310 Nebraska Hall.1' The spread of the dread dis easo smallpox has reached a crisis. The university authori ties have been battling bravely for the past few days in an at tempt to stamp out the foul fiend. But their efforts have been to no avail. Yesterday it was learned that moro now cases among;, the. students had" .devoloptfcand that drastic action must beckon at once. Immediately tho' in tor-high school othlotic meet and tho state Tngh school championship debate were indefinitely postponed. This action was followed by tho issu ing of two bulletins by the au thorities in charge of tho cam paign against the dread disease. The first bulletin was read to the various classes throughout tlio university this morning. At least Jihat was tho intention of the au thorities when they were issued. In several classes this was not done, and oven by 11 o'clock pro fessors did not cohiply with the instructions of the first bulletin, that they were to be read before the members of their classes. The second notice, which was issued about 11 o'clock this morn ing-, gave notice that it is advis able that all students who- have notbe vaccinated during tlio past year bo vaccinated at once, or at lonst consult a physician. Ar rangements have been mado for free vaccination on the campus. All university, womon may be vac cinated in room 7, Nebraska Ilall, by Dr. Inoz. ?hilbrick and Dr, Daisy. ITanseii, wlulo Dr. Wyman and Dr. Waito will vaccinate all men who come to them in room 310, Nobraska Hall. ' L Compulsory Vaccination. , Iast evoning Chancellor Avery conferred with tho city health of ficial in regard to. the action the university authorities should take in checking tho spread of the smallpox opidemic. It was decid ed that all' the students should be vaccinated; T'his, means that a compulsory 'general vaccination rule has been established. The bureau for vaccination which was established will bo continued. Thoso of tho student body who have strenuous objections ,of sul m mitting to the operation have f chance to evade the ruling. Ar- S INFECTED YFSTFfinY RY'tHr rangemonts have boon mado for tho issuing of certificates to thoso of tho university students- who are vaccinated and thoso who aj& . ' not will be granted permits, but theso permits will only bo issuod to thoso studonts who nrnspnt themselves to Dr. ninmi nr nmn other riorson each rhiv. .This rulo must bo comnlied with,, as after two 'days nov stu dent in the university will bo al lowed to attend classes unless thoy aro ablo to presont oithor a certificate or a permit. This rulo will bo strictly complied with in every respect . and no atudont without either paper will bo al lowed to attend classes. Tho proposition of dismissing classes throughout tho university was nlso discussed at this .meeting,, but it was decided that if this action was taken that tho stu dents will depart for their homes over tho state and in that way spread the infection. As tho uni versity has no power to compel students to remain tho city if class woro dismissed, this prop- -osit:on was vetoed. . - New Additions. Yestor'day three now additions were mado to the list of tho uni versity studonts at the pest house Tho first student to. be taken to tio hospital was Michael J. Hughes, who rooms at 245 South Fiftconth street. Hughes is 7a member of the senior class and has a prominent part in tho senior class play, and his absence will hinder tho workof the nlav com- Imitteo to a great extent. It. II.

She attended classes . yesterday morning, and in, 'tho , afternoon she went to tho vac-' cination bureau in Nebraska ilall to bo vaccinate After awaiting her turn to undergo tho opera- ' tion it was discovered that she was already suffering from the disoase, and was .irafmediately" confined to a room in tho builds . ing until she could bo taken to the hospital. All university girls -, have been cautioned to take ex-. tra care against tho spreaa1 6f ' tho diseaso, and yesterday twenty-five girls-were vaccinated, by , Dr. Daisy Hansen and Dr. Inez' Philbrick, who have chargo ,,'of, the bureau in Nebraska HaU forfc university women.
