The possibility of typhoid fever from our infected water supply is very apparent. The public is requested to report to the various stations for typhoid vaccination against this disease. It is also urgently requested that all water be boiled before using for drinking purposes. The various stations are listed as follows:

Allapattah School House, N. W. 17th Ave. at 36th St.
Silver Bluff Fire Station, S. W. 22nd Ave. one block South of Tigertail Road
