How many mosquitoes did you see here last summer? Very few? Right!
And these are the hard working men that the hospital personnel is
indebted to for that pleasurable condition during the warm months. Daily
they could be seen in the wood and underlbrush surrounding the hospital
with their cans of oil, scattering it freely in hollows, drains and ditches
where the pestiferious insect might hatch.
The removal of the garbage, ashes, etc., is all under their direction
and the general sanitary condition surrounding the wards comes under
their jurisdiction. Coupled with these duties they superintend the work
of the negro employees about the place an daltogether they are about
as busy an aggregation as can be found anywheres. Captain Stockard is
supervisor of the work.
In the upper row we have Wetterholm, Sgt. 1st class Yates and Gib
bons and crouching on the ground are Wedlow, Kaziak, Schofield and Cpl.

most every other day and these have
been a great treat, not only to Jew
ish boys, but to all who have been
fortunate enough to be around when
the “eats” arrived.

The grip of the Spanish influenza
has been broken at Camp Greene
There are several hundred cases of the
grippe less among the soldiers than
were reported a week ago.
“I think I can say that the crisis has
been passed,” said Lieutenant Colonel
George A. Renn, when interviewed
on the subject, Thursday.
Camp Greene has been especially
fortunate in the number of influenza
cases that have proven fatal. It is ex
pected that the government report
will place the Charlotte camp at the
head of the list for successful cases
in proportion to the number of case.s
Most rigid methods of prevention
