Three deaths have occurred in Lee’s Summit from Spanish Influenza. After consulting with the county board of health the mayor has ordered all public gatherings, picture shows, churches and schools closed until after October 15. There are no new cases reported, but quite a number of persons are affected in a light form, so these precautions are taken to prevent further spread of the disease. It is recommended that people stay away from Kansas City until the disease is stamped out.
