: The United "State public ' health
Service hu tht;following to offer in
the way of uggetions for the preven
tion of infantile paralysis: ' ;
To control the present epidemic of
infantile parilysii the chain of in
fection between persons harboring
germs of the disease-and the well
members of the community should be
broken. Infantile paralysis is prob
ably caused by-a very minute organ
ism found in the nasal, mouth and
-bowel discharges of those who have
'the disease or who are -carrier of
,-the germ without themseivea suiier
'ing from- the ailment. -AH of the
steps in the spread of the infection
are not known but if this germ can
be prevented from passing from the
'infected to the well person, the disease
will cease. '
I Infantile paralysis is not a disease
Jof recent origin. Sporadic or scat
tered cases have occurred throughout
the country for many years, but it
is only during the last decade that the
'infection has assumed epidemic pro
portions in the United States. The
present epidemic in New York city;
on account of its magnitude and viru
lence, has awakened the residents of
many communities to the danger of
the importation; of th diseases into
their own, witht'. This danger ."-real,
but if due precautions are exercised
it is believed that the epidemic will.

Official Story ot Trip.
The official communication given
out today telling of Aviator Marchal'
achievement, said
On lune 20 at 930 o clock lr. the
evening, Sub-Lieutenant Marchal aa-
cended at nancy on ooara a mcupon
monoplane of a special type, taking
with him a supply of fuel sufficient to
last fourteen hours. Hi mission was
to cross Germany at a low altitude
in order to drop proclamations on the
capital, Berlin, and then to descend
in Kussia.
"This audacious flight was accom
plished point by point, and after fly
ing all night Lieutenant Marchal was
compelled to descend at 8:30 o clock
in the morning of June 21 near Chelra,
Russian Poland, at least 100 kilome
ter (62 miles) from the Russian lines.
He was made prisoner. '
"The proclamation which Lieuten
ant Marchal dropped on Berlin began
with the word
" 'We could bombard the open town
of Berlin and thus kill the women
and im.ocent children, but we are con
tent to throw only the following pro
clamation,' etc.
"Lieutenant Marchal was interned
at Salzerbach, whence he forwarded
to France a postal card with these de
tails " 'I was made prisoner at 8 o clock
on the morning of the 21st at Chelm.
ine Austrian omcers uia nui unict
that I had accomplished my task, but
the proof later arrived, and they were
obliged to bow to the reality.
'"It was the failure of the spark
plugs which stopped me, and I de
scended to cnange two oi mem ami
to start the motor again. Unfortu
nately it v.ould have been necessary
to change two more plugs, and at this
moment I was taken prisoner. You
may judge of my chagrin.
"Aviator Marchal in the course of
his journey covered in continuous
flight a distance ot aDout i,juu Kilo
meters, (807 miles), most of which he
traveled during the night."
