1 Sick and death rates among troops in the United States will continue to be relatively high, as the Tumerical strength of troops in the United States continues to decline from week to week as a result of demobilization. Well men only are eligible for discharge,

while the sick and otherwise disabled

are retained 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 correspondingly similar rates overseas.
