No Influenza in Our Army

Washington Has Had No Reports About German Forces.

Special to The New York Times.

WASHINGTON, June 27.—No advices have reached the War Department about the influenza among the German troops on the western front.

The reported epidemic is not regarded here as having serious proportions. It is clear that the soldier who has it is incapacitated for duty, and thousands may be down with the disease at once, so that military movements may be delayed.

The American troops have at no time shown any form of the disease. Precautions have already been ordered, however, to meet any emergency.
