PURE FOOD LAWS
Another Statute 011 Subject >'eeded
Now.?So Experts Assert
Washington, Nov. 15.?A conference
between State pure food commissioners
and offices of the department
of agriculture here today decided
that the federal pure food law
-was inadequate; that it should be repealed
and another statute substituted
immediately. The chief point of
attack was the section which permits
the use of a guarantee label by manufacturers.
This was declared misleading to the
public as making it appear that the,
products were guaranteed by the government.
A committee of five, ^including Dr.
Geo. B. Taylor of Louisiana, was appointed
to urge congress to pass a
new measure and also to provide a
law to fix standards for all foods and
That section of the federa1 pure

to urge a new section which would

A clearing house in the department
of agriculture for information regarding
the enforcement of pure food arvd
drug acts was decided upon.
The conference started a movement
leading toward greater co-opera:ion
between the State pure food departments
and also with the federal authorities.
The enactment of a stringent
law to trace the sale of poisons
was urged. ^

adjourning congress one week before
the opening of the regular session,
while generally discussed and almost
invariably with signs of approval from
most of the Representatives now in
Washington, a few oppose it on the
ground that it would be brought about
solely to enable members to secure an
additional mileage allowance. Representative
J. T. Johnston, of South Carolina,
is unalterably opposed to congress
adjourning at the present time,
and to-day expressed himself very
forcibly regarding the matter. Mr.
Johnson is a strong administration
man. Since President vviison came m |
to the White House Mr. Johnson has |
never failed to uphold him whenever
opportunity afforded in national affairs*
Mr. Johnson believes that congress
should not a-djourn at the present time
for two reasons. He thinks that it
would be bad for Congress to interfere
with the plans of the President
for continuous and constructive legis
lation-. In other words that inasmuch i
as the President has insisted that Con- j
gress remain in session until the cur- \
rency bill should be out of the way, j
that it would be unwise at the present1
time to adjourn, even though the new
session will begin in about two weeks, j
and that it would injure the President's j
prestige. In addition to this, he is
opposed to the payment of mileage for
members for such a purpose. "I am i
a member of the House committee on !
appropriations." Mr. Joiinson said, j
"and I shall do my utmost to prevent
the consideration of any such plan j
should it be brought up."

During the winter months especially,
when v\re live an indoor life
the kidneys should receive some assistance
when needed, as we take less
exercise, drink less water and often
eat more rich heavy food, thtreby
forcing the kidneys to do more work
than nature intended. Evidence or
