1918 Suffrage Talk Postponed

I am still researching Inez Haynes Irwin. She had spent two years in Europe during World War I. She was scheduled to give a talk in Boston at the Wilbur Theater, "A Woman at the Front" on September 26, 1918. However, a news clipping on that date suggests the talk was postponed, due to the request of the Emergency Health Committee. I can only think it was due to the influenza epidemic of the time.
