There have been no deaths in the army camps from epidemic influenza, it was announced at headquarters today. A quarantine to prevent spread of the disease has been placed upon Fort Sam Houston, Kelly Field, Brooks Field, Camp John Wise and the Motor and Mechanical Repair shops. This is a precautionary measure, rather than a measure resulting from the extent of the disease.
