1 Sick and death rates among troops in the l'nited States will continue to be relatively high, as Uio eumerical strength of troops in the United States continues to decline from weck to week as a resuit of derzobilization. Well men only are cligible for discharge, while the sick and otherwise disabled are resinei in service for further treatment. The continued influx of sick and wounded (properly chargeable to commands overseas) is another factor tending to increase rates in the United States and to diminish Carnestondingly similar rates overseas.
