DC attorney James Proctor is recovering from being gassed in the Meuse-Argonne, which is reported alongside the War Camp morris-dancing schedule for the DC Christmas tree, alongside the DC influenza epidemic: 508 new cases and 22 deaths. The city health department is not expecting a return of a virulent form.
