State Convict
Camp Struck By
“Flu’’Epidemic
t -*
30 Prisoners Sick
At One Time
Epidemic Improving Now At Pr.'son,
In Schools And Throughout
County.
The influenza epidemic which
has been raging over Cleveland
county for almost a fortnight
sems to be letting up with warm
weather this week, but at least
10 men at the State convict
camp, east of Shelby, where the
epidemic struck the. hardest
blow, are still confined.
The first case of •'flu" developed
at the new prison camp week be
fore last. Within a short time, due
to the fact that it is necessary to
keep the men in close quarters, be
tween a third and a half of the en
tire convict force and guards had
to take to their beds.
30 At One Time.
Information secured at the camp
today had it that a total of 30 men,
prisoners and guards, were down
at one time last week. The epidemic
at the camp was generally light, but
at least one prisoner, a white con
vict, became seriously ill. it wa/ said,
before showing improvement. This
week there had been a considerable
let-up. Only eight prisoners and two
I guards were still in bed today. The
■ guards still sick are James Roberts
and Arthur Moss. The other guards
who have improved and are able to
be out are Doc Jones and Smith
Gallimore.
. In Schools.
The epidemic caused many ab
sences in the county schools last
week and some this week, but only
a few' cases were of a severe type.
The epidemic had its origin in the
county in the lower section, where
around 40 pupils were taken sick
with cold and influenza in one week
in one school. Gradually the epi
demic travelled over the county.
Schools in the upper section of the
coffitt#'- were hardly touched, how
ever, the majority of the cases be
ing in the southern snd eastern
sections. There have been some cas
es, it is said, in practicailv all of the
30 schools still running.
There are a number of cases in
Shelby, but they are not as num
erous in proportion to population as
those in the colinty. •
One or two cases have developed
complications, such as turning Into
pneumonia, but generally speaking
all attacks were light and physic
ians are of the opinion that another
■week of warm weather may bring
an end to the spread.

Undaunted by the tale that has befallen many women filers who attempted to conquer the Atlantic, Miss
Elinor Smith, New York aviatrix is planning an attempted conquest of the big watery dnide this year.
Though Miss Smith shows commendable courage, she would be well advised to study the score sheet in
| the battle between the sea and women fliers who hav» tried to conquer it. Out of seven la Jvlirds to mr.ke
the trans-oceanic attempt only two lived to tell about it Amelia Earbart accomplished the crossing from
| Newfoundland to Wales successfully, with Mllmer Stall end Lou Gordon. And Ruth Elder was picked up
out of the sea off the Azores, after the plane in which she was flying to Paris with Geroge Haldeman was
forced down on the sea. Five other women met death. Pi Ircess Lowenstein Werthelm flew Into obllv'on
with Capt. Leslie Hamilton and CoL F. Minchin, while attempting a flight from Upavon, Eng., to Ottawa.
! ('an. Eight day later RHIdred Doran, Flint, Mieh., teacher, flew to death with John PedVt while at
| tempting a flight from Oakland. Cal., to Honolulu, for the 135,000 Dole prize. Then came ihe tragedy of
j Mrs. Frances Grayson, who was never heard of after sbe took off with Bryce Goldsborough and two com
panions in an attempt to fly from New York to Copenhagen. Right ontop of that disaster came that of
the Hon. Elsie Mack ay, daughter of Lord Inchcape, whi was swallowed by the Atlantic while flying from
England to America with Capt. Walter Hinchcllffe. The last woman to go down to defeat at the hands of
| Neptune was Mrs. Beryl Hart, wealthy American widow, who. with Lieut W. 8. McLaren, attempted a
flight from New York to Paris. They vanished somewheie between Bermuda and the Azores.
