Smallpox Situation Quiescent at
Bloomington and the University.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., March 6. – No new cases of smallpox have developed in the city or university, and the excitement is subsiding. – Miss Clara Davis, whose illness became known yesterday, is much better to-day and there is no cause for alarm. She has been taken to the home of a well-known family who are immunes, and is being tenderly cared for. Every precaution is being taken, and if new cases develop in university circles the students who are exposed will be rigidly quarantined. Dr. Swain, president of Indiana University, is quite ill with a cold, but he has appointed a committee which has full power to act. The three cases thus far are in the lightest form, more like valioloid. The work of the university continues uninterrupted, and nothing further will be done unless there are new developments.
