the pure food board, was ptlmarlly re
sponsible for this definition of beer and
strongly advocated a strict enforcement
of It, The brewers of the country put
up a stiff right nnd they were nlded by
the Corn Products people, who sell hun
dreds of thousands of dollars worth of
corn products annually to the brewers.
The Department's position was backed
up by the fanners, who nsserted barley
mowers were losing money every year
on account of the brewers using substi
tutes for barley.
AIhiuI a month ago Secrelnry Wilson
prepared for promulgation n decision at
to what beer shoulirHie mode of and dl-'
reeling brewers to label their product
xo that consumers would know exactly
what they were drinking. Then, It Is
stated, the legal officers of the depart
ment stepped In and Informed the Sec
retary that there was no warrant In the
present law to define beer or to compel
brewers to place on labels the Ingredi
ents entering Into their product.
To-day Secretary Wilson definitely de

Is certain to raise a rumpus, He will
