NO SMOKERS IN
15 YEARS: WILEY
Washington, July 8. Dr. Harvey
W. Wiley, pure food expert, yester
day predicted that within 15 years
smoking and tobacco chewing In
public will have become obsolete.'Dr.
Wiley is one of the Incorporators of
the Anti-Tobacco association, which
sought a charter in New York a few
days ago. Said he today: "A man
has a perfect right . to drink, chew
or dip snuff in his private sanctum,
but has not the shadow of a right
to inflict unwholesome smoke and
his vile breath on the community at
large There should be a law
strictly enforced by the authorities
prohibiting smoking and chewing in
public places or on the cars, where
other persons are obliged to be." Dr.
Wiley admits that a person even of
the gentle sex may drink a "table
spoonful of mellow rye" or pufT a
cigar or clgaret without harm, but
says that is no excuse for the public
ity of the deeds.
