"RACE BREEDING THE ONLY CURE
FOR FAST-DYING HUMAN RACE"
Says Dr. J. H. Kellogg, Famous Surgeon, at National v
Eugenic Conference Says Mankind Is Rotting So
.Rapidly That He Will Soon Be Known
) - ' No More To This Earth.
.. BY KENNETH WILCOX -PAYNE
Battle Creek, Jan. 15. "The human race is dying! That is why I
maintain that the only hope for mankind lies in establishing a registered
race. of. men. Prom it, then, would be bred an aristocracy of human thor
oughbreds' that could supplant the rotting strains of our present race!"
j Dn J. H. Kellogg of Bs$ttle Creek, and breakfast food fame, was ex
plaining, to me', for tne benel of, readers of The Day Book, what he had
meant by his sensational statement- the- other- day before the remarkable
Race Betterment conference at Battle Creek the statements caught up
everywhere at once, that humans should be registered and officially pedi
greed, just like horses, cattle and dogs!
Dr. Kellogg speaks with .the highest authority, be it remembered. He is
renowned among scientists throughout the' land, as an unsurpassed, sur
geon, expert dietitian and.jiroflcient student of biological problems. He was
practically originator as well as host, of the "race betterment conference."
"I maintain the human race is dying;" explained Dr. Kellogg, "because
I know" that the history of antmpl races normally is parallel to that of in
dividuals they are born, thrive, for' a time, and die and my observation is
that mankind is following exactly-this course.
