Emile Berliner Holds Lax Laws
Accountable for Un
Emile Berliner, president of the As
sociation for Prevention of Tubercu
losis today denied any intention of
reflecting on the ability of Dr. Fow
ler, District Health Officer, and .^aid
that it is no fault of Dr. Fowler's
that there Is not back of him some
statute which would enable him to
stop unhealthy milk from reaching
the unsuspecting consumer.
"The offices of the Tuberculosis As
sociation are disturbed by statements
which were printed in The Washing
ton Times within the past day or two
and which to the uninitiated may
have tho appearance as if some one
had reflected on the efficiency of our
Health Department and of the milk
inspectors," Mr. Berliner said. "Just
the reverse can be shown* and has
often been pointed out whenever the
subject of milk was under discussion
among us. The Washington Health
Office has for a number of years
faithfully published Its monthly list
of ratines under which the milk sold
by any dealer could be found classified
regarding its healthfulness.
?Ie Fault af Dr. PSW 1er.
"If under the list of ratings there
Is milk as low as 43 (out of possible
100), and there Is no law which can
prevent such milk from being freely
sold in the District of Columbia, no
fault can possibly be found with the
Health Officer. He has ?Imply not
back of him some statute which
would enable him to stop such milk
from reaching an unsuspecting con?
"If milk can be sold aa pasten rlsed
Which Is worse after pasteurisation
than before, the Health Officer Is
again powerless to Interfere. He is
not permitted to regulate the milk
traffic to the, extent of Interfering
with such practice.
"If at the Children's Hospital aad
other hospitals, or homes, raw milk?
and that not of the best?Is giren to
the sick children to drink, a fact
which has often been pointed out by
officers and directors of the Tuber
culosis Association, and may be done
at the present moment, arsin can the
Heslth Officer not Interfere?
"Tbe bulk of the milk sold raw In
Washington Is of high grfde. at least
so far as any raw milk can be classi
fied as safe milk to give to children,
invalids and all those whose reslstence
is impaired. And we know thst Dr.
Fowler Is most earnest in his opinion
that all milk should be pasteurised
under official supervision. Knowing
this how could anybody wish to re
flect on the Health officer?
"As for other large cities I saci?se
a list of fifteen of them showing that
these all have milk classifications and
milk standards under which such
labeling is deceptive. Moreover these
classifications prove that the law in
those cities Intends to guard the peo
ple against unsafe milk, also that the
bacterial counts of raw milk must not
go abov? a fairly safe limit and that
pasteurization be done under strict
It is not Dr. Fowler's fault that we
have no such regulations here eren
though it is historic that milk stand
ards as now ?n force in many large
cities are all based on the so-calle?
Melvin Standards which the Washing
ton Milk Conference of 1907 formu
lated and passed. Dr Fowler Is en
deavoring, as. the Commissioners have
tried repeatedly, to get proper laws
enacted by Congress.
"Dr. Fowler Is a highly valued
member of our board of directors and
I earnestly protest against the as
sumption that his ability and good
will as a Health Officer has at any
time been questioned."
CLOTHING TO COST

BOSTON, Nov. 26?Retail clothiers
at a hearing today before the Com
mission of the Necessaries of Life, said

more than suits do now. Federal ex

1 i-ach handler of the goods, were said
' to be largely responsible. Some cloth

Figures for a standard blue serge
; suit were given by one dealer. In
1914, he said, the material cost $1.-0

day the material price Is 14.15 a yard,
the wholesale price $31, and the r? tail
price $45. One clothier said Increas
ng costs would compel his company
, to charge at wholesale next spring
