Claim News Tainted to

Soda Crowd Tried to Make
Medical Association Back
Their Game.
Special Dispatch.
Washington, Oct. 21.—For some time
past it has been evident” to those who
have followed the benzoate of soda
controversy that those who advocate
its use as a food preservative were
resorting to desperate methods to mis
lead the public in regard to the facts
in the case.
One of the method* utilized is for a
press agent in New York to write ar
ticles to the newspapers under a ficti
tious name, posing as a scientist inter
ested. in the matter from a purely sci
entific standpoint.
Another scheme was editorially ex
posed in the Outlook as follows: “The
manufacturer* who believe sincerely in
the right and propriety of their use
of benzoate of soda‘are not really do.
ing their cause good by some of their
methods of creating public opinion. An
organization bearing the high sounding
title of the National Association for
the Promotion of Public Health, and
purporting to be a philanthropic and
public spirited society, is really main
tained as an advertising or press agen
cy by some at least of the manufac
turing group which use benzoate of
soda. This press agency recently sub
mitted to the Outlook for publication
an article by a physician which, under
the guise of a charitable appeal for
poor children suffering from infantile
paralysis, was a thinly disguised ad
vocacy of the use of benzoate of soda
in preserved foods. The Outlook, of
course, declined the article."
A few days ago Washington had a
demonstration or how far they would
go in attempting to mislead the public
through the press. On October 6 the
trustees of the American Institute of
Homeopathy met in Washington. They
adjourned that evening and most of
them left the city. That night a man
of eminently respectable appearance
eslled at a number of newspaper of
fices, among others the Washington
office of a morning press nss|ciation.
Tn his hand he carried n number of
copies of n statement and on one of
them appeared the “o. k. ” of Dr. .T.
Ritchey Horner of Cleveland, secre
tary of the board. He conveyed the
idea that he was Dr. Horner, and on
the strength of this a dispatch was
sent out. which began:

Who Prefers Van Camp’s?
Madam, you should raise your hand. All of your people like Van Camp's better
than home-baked beans* Yet this ready-baked dish means less to them than to you.
Serve a dish of home-baked beans with a dish of Van Camp's.
Then take a vote of your table.
The result is always the same. Al|, save the housewife, will
vote for Van Camp's. The housewife, of course, can’t decry
faer own dish.'
Yet, Mrs. Housewife, think what Van Camp’s mean to you.
Think of the time and the fuel you’ll save when you once vote
with the rest.
Think of what it will mean to have a dozen meals in the house,
ready for instant serving.
All people like their beans nutty, mealy and whole. Yet you
can’t get them that way without a steam oven.
People want their beans to digest, so they won’t ferment and
form gas. No home Oven can make them digestible.
People like the tomato sauce baked into the beans.
Your folks will eat more beans, by five times over, when you
ierve Van Camp’s. And beans are 84% nutriment.
They contain more food than meat or eggs or cheese. Yet
they cost but a fraction as much.

the purpose of permanently organizing

See what a living it make* on your meat bills to serve bean*
that people like.
Here are the reasons why Van Camp's excel beans baked at
home. Note that the fault does not lie with you, but solely with
your lack of facilities.
Our ovens are heated to 245 degrees. And we bake in small
parcels so the full heat xpes through. Thus we break up the
particles so the digestive juices can get to them.
The beans in the center of your baking dish rarely get more
than 100 degree*. That’s not half heat enough. That’s why
your beans ferment and form gas. —
Wg bake in live steam —not in dry heat. Thus we bake our
beans until they are mealy, yet not a bean is crisped or broken.
Your top beans are crisped. The rest f of your beans are
mushy and broken. That is due to dry heat.
Then we bake the beans, the tomato sauce and the pork all
together, and get our delicious blend. Those are the reasons
why people prefer Van Camp’s.
