COMPRKUKNBIVB LOCAL AND OBNBBAL NIWL
DAIRYMEN DERELICT
IN SECURING LICENSES
Only About Half Of Those In
Business Comply With
Milk Ordinance
MEASURE NOW OPERATIV
Anne Arundel county dairymen are
derelict in complying with the provi
sions of the milk regulation ordinance
passed by the Mayor and City Council
a few months ago. and which became |
fully operative on January 1.
This is shown by the records in die
office of the city clerk. Scarcely 20 of
the dairymen who bring their nuiK tc
the city to sell, have applied for the
required license, whereas, according
to County Agent George W. Norris
there are 40 dairies in this vlcluitv
who place their supply on the i'wal ,
market.
Applies To Retailers, Too
The new ordinance, which is qu'te
stringent in its regulation of the sale
of milk, requires also that all mer
chants retailing milk to their cus
tomers take out a license from tin
city clerk. According to a census
j made by the Annapolis Creamery
j Company. 69 stores in Annapolis
handle this necessity, but of this
I number only thirtv-fiv.e have taken
| out the stipulated licenses. Whether
! the other merchants are going to
I scratch the health giving fluid from
; their list of supplies, or arc hoping to
| evade the provisions of the ordin we
time, or an investigation by the c**y
officials, alone will disclose
It has also been found Hit that n
-, other requirement of the ’Milk ordi
) nance is being treated with contempt
by thosp interested. Tli! Is the 1 w
1 that all milk sold in Anne Arundel
county must come from tuberculin
tested herds only. It has leaked out
that there are several dairymen
whose cows are not tuberculin-tested
j though this Is blamed upon the failure
of the necessary officials to respond to
j calls for the test in time to comply
• with the time limit of the new ordi
nance.
