Typhus patient convalescing at the infectious diseases hospital in Brest-Litovsk. No fuel is in for winter, and there is a total lack of mattresses and blankets. The Interallied Medical Comm. sent by the League of Red Cross Societies to study the typhus situation in Poland found that the present epidemic of typhus is wide spread and fresh cases are constantly being introduced from the East by returning refugees and prisoners of war. The Polish medical authorities are taking active measures to deal with this situation but they are seriously handicapped by the lack of soap, disinfectants, drugs, bedding and clothing and hospital equipment. In its official report the Comm. states that this condition is a matter of international moment, and that united action is needed to stamp out typhus in Poland to prevent its spread to Western Europe and America

Mother and child in ruins of their home at Dubno. This city was on the Russo-Austrian front for nine months during 1915 and a majority of the buildings were destroyed by artillery fire. The inhabitants have been forced to live together in the remaining dwellings and this results in over crowding, which seriously complicates the situation in regard to the spread of typhus and other infectious diseases. The members of the Interallied Medical Comm. sent by the League of Red Cross Societies to investigate the typhus situations in Poland found that the present epidemic is wide spread and will grow this winter to proportions that will be a menace not only to Poland but to Western Europe and America unless the most active measures are taken to deal with the situation. Assistance is needed by the Polish medical authorities, and this should be given in the form of soap, disinfectants, drugs, sheets, blankets, clothing and hospital equipment
