Plans to Inanre Absolutely Sani

dertaken by Commisiionera.
Washington's milk regulations may
be extensively revised as a result of
steps taken by the District and fed
eral governments today to insure the
absolutely sanitary handling of the
capital's milk supply.
The entire milk situation is to he
Investigated by a committee consist
ing of Health Officer William C.
Fowler, representing the District
government: Dr. E. H. Price, United
Slates public health service, and a
representative of the bureau of ani
mal industry of the Department of
Agriculture, to be named.
The committee will investigate pas
teurization of milk in the District.
Every process through which milk
passes from the time it leaves the
farms until it reaches the consumer
will be investigated. Regulation of
prices is without the scope of inquiry,
but sanitation will be inquired into
from every angle.
Wide latitude as to making recom
mendations that will promote sanita
tion is given the committee. That the
recommendations will result in a big
shake-up in the present regulations
is considered probable. The commit
tee has not set a date for its or
ganization meeting, but it is under
stood that it will tajke up the work at
once and complete it as Boon as pos
sible. ^

Region of Which Capital Is
Part Ranks Second in Per
Cent Over Quota.,
The fifth federal reserve district, in
which Washington is located, has the
distinction of standing second among
the twelve districts in percentage of
oversubscriptions to the fourth lib
erty loan.
Word to this effect was received to
day by the local loan committee from
George J. Seay. governor of the fifth
federal reserve district. He state!
that the total subscription in this dis
trict was 1345,000,000, an oversub
scription percentage of 23.22 per cent.
The Boston district was first, with an
oversubscription percentage of 26.44,
and the San Francisco district was
last with an oversubscription percen
tage of 5.97.
Should Be Froud of High Honor.
In his statement Gov. Seay said the
results of the fourth loan drive should
make every loan subscriber and work
er proud of the assistance which he or
she has given to the country. He said
also that those in the fifth district
should feel most proud of the high
honor attained by this district, which
has answered the nation's call in such
Quoting from a telegram received
yesterday from Secretary McAdoo
Gov. Seay said:
"The great success of the loan is
new and convincing evidence of the
determined spirit of America to carry
on the war until freedom is assured
throughout the world. But even with
the highest purpose and patriotism on
the part of the people this great re
sult could not have been achieved
without intelligent direction and or
ganization. I wish to thank the liberty
loan committees, both men and wom
en, the bankers and business men,
farmers, wage earners, railroad offi
cers and employes and every group of
citizens who have so ably and enthu
siastically co-operated with the Treas
ury in conducting the campaign.
Greatest in All History.
"To the press of the country, espe
cially, credit is due for emphasizing
through their news columns and edi
torial pages the necessity for making
this great loan successful. In spite of
the influenza epidemic, the unenacted
revenue bill and other unfavorable fac
tors, the American people have con
summated the greatest financial
achievement in all history."
Of the total amount subscribed in
the fifth district, Washington raised
more than 40 per cent.
