PHARMACISTS CUT COD LIVER OIL DOSE Boys and girls who take three doses of oleum morrhuae, better known as cod liver oil, daily as a vitamin builder and adults who use the same amount to replenish their energy will have only to take two teaspoonSful daily, if the oil is registered U. S. P. strength, according to recommendations of the committee on revision for the United States Pharmacopoeia. The committee, which meets yearly in Washington to discuss corrections or additions to the ap proved list of pharmaceutical formulae utilized as a standard gauge by the Pure Food and Drug Administration, completed its sug gestions at an all-day meeting to day, in the Washington Hotel at which doctors, pharmacists and academic experts expounded their views on current basic me dicinal preparations. 50 Experts Here During the course of the meet ing, the 50 odd learned experts from all parts of the country dis cussed aspects of proved thera peutical preparations, including methods for artificial drying of squill, a substance used in cough medicine to stimulate expectora tion, and to newer methods of manufacture and purification of oxygen. The conclusions of the commit tee, which will be submitted to pure food and drug act officials tomorrow, will be incorporated as part of the yearly supplement to the standardized Pharmacopoeia, ! the Sccepted pharmaceutical “en-! cyclopedia’’ which contains the; basic formulae for the chief medi cal antedotes in use today. Using the last Pharmacopoeia as their guide, the committee headed by Dr. E. Fullerton Cook, of the Philadelphia College of | Pharmacy and Science, heard the assembled experts relate new com mercial processes of preparation and experimental discoveries, which will change present manu facture of certain medicines. G. W. U. Man Present Included in the gathering were Dr. C. B. Jordan, dean of the MediCal School of Purdue Uni versity; Dr. John C. Krantz, jr., professor of pharmacology at the University of Maryland; Dr. George W. McCoy, director of the National Institute of Health, Washington, D. C.; Dr. George D. Beal, assistant director of the Mel lon Institute, Pittsburgh; Joseph Rosin, vice president of Merck and Company, and Dr. George B. Roth, professor at the George Washington University Medical School. The original Pharmacopoeia, first published in 1820, contained approximately 1.000 formulae, most of which were merely listings of preparations, as many were in capable of being proved. Today, the eleventh revision of the orig inal has been contracted until it contains only 560 formulae, the basic preparations used in phar maceutical practice today. italiMTaps SIGN PACT ROME, Dec. 1 (1.N.5.). — Italy and Japan have concluded an ac cord for economic cooperation, it was admitted in official quarters today. Formal announcement will be delayed indefinitely to avoid pro viding “alarmist” comment abroad, it was stated. The agreement provides for Italy’s granting formal recogni tion of Japan’s puppet state of Manchukuo, and for japan’s granting of formal recognition of Italy’s conquest of Ethiopia. If the accord contains any mili tary clauses, they will remain secret. The pact will complete the cycle of cooperation begun with the Italo-German and German- Japanese agreements. Oregon Ranchers Raise Sugar Beef ONTARIO, Ore., (1.N.5.). Forced to decrease the number of range-fed live stock usually raised in this section, Malheur county ranchers now are turning to sugar beet raising as the answer to their annual income problem. Eastern Oregon and Western Idaho soil already has proven easily adaptable to the new crop, and the custom of sugar beet buy ers of contracting for the annual crop even before it is planted has proved alluring to ranchers. One rancher alone fully demon etrated the adaptability of Mal heur county soil when he cleared SIO,OOO on his sugar beet crop off 107 acres. The SIO,OOO figure was profit above his land rental and ether incidentals. The usual “take” on sugar beet crops raised in this section has been 20 tons to the acre, and in the Twin Falls. Idaho, area—where beets are grown extensively—the crops average between 15 and 17 tons to the acre.

Small grain still is cut with hand sickles, and oxen still pull plows of wood In. some parts of Europe, but harvester combines and rubber-tired tractors, devel oped in the United States, are in creasing in numbers on overseas farms, R. B. Gray, of the Depart ment of Agriculture, told the American Society of Agricultural Engineers here today. Gray, now chief of the division of mechanical equipment of the Bureau of Agricultural Engineer ing, was in Europe for 10 years pior to 1920, as representative of an American exporter of farm machinery, and returned last summer as an observer for the U. S. of Agriculture. Because of the high price of fuel, he said, Diesel power is the most popular in European coun tries. He said: "Farms in the old country are conspicuously free of broken down and wornout machinery. Either the machines are traded In on new machinery before they fall to piece, or they are sold as junk when they wear out. At any rate, the farm steads are not cluttered up with old machinery as is often the case in the United States.” Eropean farms, he said, are getting away from "cumbersome, pre-war tractors, "and are using smaller machines, built along automobile lines.” New Haven Seeks Tax on Students NEW HAVEN, Conn.—A deter mined campaign by this city to make every student at Yale Uni versity over 21 years old pay the annual tax of $3 for old-age as sistance in New Haven began as Fred D. Chase, municipal regis trar, began a door-to-door canvass of the dormitories to enroll ell gibles on the 1937 tax list. Mayor John W. Murphy has expresesd a determination to col lect the tax unless students can produce receipts proving they I have paid similar levies in their I home States. GLASS LABOR 'SITS DOWN' OTTAWA, 111., Dec. 1 (1.N.5.). A “sit down” strike was in progress in the pattern-cutting department of the Libby-Owens-Ford Glass Company tdoay. The strike fol lowed an announcement the com pany had been awarded a big con tract by the Chrysler Company, most of whose work previously had been done by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company of Pitts burgh, where workers are now on strike. MARSEILLES, 111., Dec. 1 (1.N.5.). —Officials of the Certain teed Products Roofing Company branch plant here, announced to day the plant will be closed perma ently.

OB *£S OWMI6 THE WASHINGTON TIMES, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1»36 FRAZIER PLANS NEW FIGHT FOR FARM BILL Another major battle over the Frazier-Lemke three-billlon-dollar farm mortgage inflationary bill was assured today. Senator Frazier (R.), of North Dakota, announced he would re introduce the controversial meas ure, and Senator Thomas (D.), of Oklahoma, a leader in the cur rency reflation forces, declared he would continue to support it. Sees Prosperity Thomas declared: “It is a step in the right direc tion and will help bring back prosperity not only on the farms but throughout the country.” Although the Administration fought the bill at the last session of Congress, when its considera tion was forced by petition in the House, Senator Frazier declared himself “optimistic” over the out look for passage in the new Con gress. He said: “Many members of Congress committed to the principles of the measure were elected on No vember 3. I doubt that the Ad ministration has changed its at titude of opposition, but we in tend to carry on our efforts for passage of the measure.” A Billion in Loans The bill would authorize issu ance of up to 3,000 million dollars in long-term bonds, which would be used as a basis for issues of currency for loans to farmers.” - Senator Frazier said he would change the interest rate from l 1 per cent to 1 per cent, leaving the charge for amortization of loans at I’/a per cent as it was in the bill before tKe last Congress. Provisions will be included to enable farm tenants to obtain loans for purchase of farms, he said. Farmers who have lost their farms in the depression would be afforded an opportunity to obtain loans for purchase of their prop erty. Wants Crop Surety Senator Frazier continued! “There ought to be crop insur ance legislation. I think it would be well to start with wheat for experience in that form of farm relief.” Senator Thomas said: “Ever since the depression be gan I have been advocating re flation of the currency, to cheapen money, increase prices and enable our people to pay off their debts and again become prosperous. “The business improvement we have had is due to expansion of the currency. In the last year the amount of money in circula tion increased 609 million dol lars to a total of 6,429 million. “The Frazier-Lemke bill will do some good. No sensible per son wants wild inflation of our currency. The Frazier-Lemke bill carries safeguards against unnecessary inflation. It is re flationary in character.” Here's Simple Way to Ease a Cold » 1. / Take 2 BAYER ASPIRIN X / tablets ond drink ° f” l * / glass of water. / lF .'F , Repeat treat- / went in 2 hour*. / I V ::: ’ / \ 2.
