The Evening Current (Carlsbad, NM) contends that anyone doubting the need for a state health department should only look to the inability to quantify and address the influenza epidemic.

The Bolshevik government has invaded the Norwegian embassy to take away secrets, and a plot to restore the Kaiser in Germany has been uncovered.
