"If the consumer can be . taught to "se his Intellect as well as his ees our troubles with the artificial coloring of foods will largely disappear, Dr. AJsberg declared. "The progress of science is changing t 'io entire food industry. We need a re adjustment of our standards of quality. The proper regulation of quallt through food rcgultAon will help but little If the consumer be not educated o pay less attention to sentimental ral lies, and not to be guided wholly bv prejudice." The consumer must be made to un derstand the real value of what is of fered him. Thos the growing scarcity iT foods may be minimized and the de velopment I new foods and new nourcea of foods through the applica tion or modern methods may be stimu lated. No -other civilized country wastes foodstuffs as this country wastes them. Dr. JI. E. Pennington, one of the De partment of Agriculture's food experts, declared, "If all the crops that the farm ers rased were utilized, all the meat animals that are killed eaten, all the fish that come Into the nets markete. hundreds of thousands who are row jjngry would bo fed. nd the. agitation on the subject of high prices would cease Dr. Pennington declared.
