"There no diseases on the island before the troops arrived and anything the men are suffering now has either bcc:n brought in the last two years o'r is something they contracted before leaving the United States." Mnj. Henry V.". Thompson of the Army modi- cnl corps declared. Few Germs on Loose Coughs ar.d colds arc the most prevalent: cause of illness. -Thomp-. son said, but the blame for even those can bo ilxed on 'outside' causes — contracting cold germs from new arrivals or before leaving the mainland.

"There -arc just very few disease germs for men to contract up here." The base hospital's isolation ward has been the least used' building on the island and is often empty. Also, the per capita •denee of vunorul disease here is the lowest among U. S. troops anywhere, partly because they have no opportunity to contact infected. women and because persona infected before arrival are isolated and treated immediately. Give Weather Credit. Although williwaws and fop as thick as smoke may be unpleasant, medical oillcers credited the weather for the lack of disease. Insect and water-borne' disease have been unknown 'in the Aleutians and there has been a com- .plcto absence of. malaria, typhoid .and dengue fever which has plagued U. S, troops elsewhere in tho Pacillc. To overcome the lack of sunshine, a contributing factor in such diseases as pneumonia and tuberculosis, the Army has constructed several solariums, where soldiers receive ultra-violet ray treatment in daily one or two-minute duscs, Brig. Gen. Marry Thompson, post commander, believes the even temperature of the Aloutions has been a major reason for the hcu'.th condition of the troops here. • He pointed out that the maximum was 1" degree's, with the .-average . difference between minimum and maximum about eijjht degrees. The lack of sharp temperature fluctuations common to the United' Slates eliminates 0:10 of 'the major causes for 'colds and similar- 1 illness, he said.
