Board Urged Not To Lift Jlan Uiitil Situation is Safe A-ti-a:.meeting called for .3 o'clock this. afternaon the local board of health Jr.'considering the question of rembvihg.lhe ban on the theatres, picture shows, schools, churches and other gatherings which have been elimihated during the influenza epidemic. Since Tuesday the local board of health has had the right to "open or close the schools and theatres, so that today's decision is awaited with interest. Wednesday's "flu" report shows 10 houses placed in quarantine, with about 15 cases represented thereby, one house leaving five cases. This is practically as many cases as on the three previous days altogether. On this report there is understood io be some hesitation about opening up the various places where gatherings take place. Urges Keeping Ban At a meeting last evening the trustee board of Wesley church passed a resolution urging upon the health board/that no public gathering^ of any Wnd be permitted until they are satisfied that the epidemic has abated. May Not Open Schools. "I Jim opposed to opening the schools," said Trustee Davidson to The Herald today. . "I have heard of a number of places where a too-early opening was made, , with tho result that the epidemic broke out shortly afterwards in a n^re serious form than ever. I'rusteo Wallace Is not anxious to have the schools opened too- soon, but he doesn't want to have a day more than necessary wasted, "We' have lost a great deal of time already that it will be almost impossible to make up in the school year." Theatre Men Hopeful. The theatre men are fairly confident that Monday at the latest will see the opening of the theatres and moving picture houses. Many people are anxiously asking to'know when' this form of amusement will be made available. One little girl declares that she is going to three picture shows the first afternoon they are open. i Assistant Superintendent Piper of tho A. P. P. is in the city today.

The exemption was granted on the understanding that the company would increase its plant'hnd maintain a payroll ot at least $36,000 a year. Representatives of the company, waited on the council and showed that the plant had been increased, and that negotldtions to secure a new site had fallen through, though for no fault of their own. As to the payroll, they > admitted that this had not been kept up to the |35,000 mark, this was because the manager, Capt. C, B. Magi-ath, and the assistant manager, tho late Lieut. Ma-grath Godwin, had enlisted for active service early In the war. Under the circumstances the council decided that the tompany had complied a.s closely as possible with the terms of tho exemption, and the tax bill was rehated. The company'.s exemption expires next year.
