OLEO CASE CAN NOT BE COMPROMISED y"You shall inquire whether attor neys, agents or representatives of the companies, or officers of the United States government, entered into a conspiracy to defraud the United States government." These words, uttered by Federal Judge KM. Landis in charging the special grand jury called o investi gate the alleged $1,200,000 oleomar garine frauds, plainly showed that the court was- suspicious of the set tlement made by the Taft adminis tration on its last day in office. On the morning of March 4, Secre tary of the Treasury MacVeagh, himself a Chicago wholesale grocer, compromised the case of the oleo manufacturers for $101,000. At the time Landis was impaneling a jury to investigate the claim the manufac turers had colored their product and failed to pay the government 10 cents per pound revenue tax. Judge Landis declares the govern ment has no power to compromise a criminal prosecution. He is ignoring MacVeagh's eleventh-hour settle ment. - " " LITTLE FACTS ABOUT MILK Pure milk is the properlyhandled product of healthy, well-fed cows.

It is bluish White. The yellow shade in- milk is due to the fat. But it is not safe to judge by the color alone, as the yellowist milk is not necessarily richest. Artificial colors are- sometimes added. o o FEELING TOWARD - FRIEDMAN! CURE HAS REVERSED New York, March 17. Dr. Fried rich Franz Friedmann, who haB treated more than 100. tuberculosis caBes in Canada, returned to New York today to find the -feeling regard ing his cure had been reversed Bince. he made his first demonstration here. At that time Friedmann met with a storm of opposition; and many physicians ridiculed his pretensions to cure consumption. Today ther is a revulsion of feeling among -these Bkeplics. "Iff. Maurice Sturm, one of'Fried mann's earliest critics, and the man who declared the Berlin physician had a ".quack remedy," said because of the remarkable improvement s'ev- eral of the patients treated by Fried- ,mann had shown: "I can no longer be skeptical." This opinion is typical of the uni versal change in the attitude of scientists. No obstacles will be thrown in the way oMiTUev demon strations. Friedmann will immediately begin extensive tests under government su pervision. ' , '
