NO ASSURANCE OF PURITY. That Package Should Bear the Pure Food Label. Mobile. Ala., June 10. The word "Guaranteed under the-food and drugs act ' on a label are no assurance that the contents of a package are pure, ac cording to Dr. Carl L. Alsberg, chief of the buresu of chemistry, who spoke here to-day before the Association of Amen can tood, Dairy and Drug Officials,, Dr. Alsberg was speaking of the limitations of the federal bureau under the pure food law, appealing for closer co-opera tion between fedcrul and state authori ties and for uniformity of laws in the various states, based on" the national law, looking to a less frequently misbranded and to a better food and drug supply. "When the average mother buys a can of unsweetened condensed milk for her baby," he declared, "the word 'con densed' on the can gives her no positive information as to the volume of real milk that has been reduced to the com pass of the can. One brand may be high ly concentrattd, and another be only slightly condensed from its original milk state. We chemists, of course, can do a complicated little sum with the but ter fat percentages anl the statement of solid contents shown on the label and get : the answer. . The average consumer, f however, either cannot or will not do so; t and the average mother with a baby has J no time to do it, even if she had the ' necessary knowledge." The food and drugs act, Dr. Alsberg asserted, "not only does not give the . department of agriculture power to act I ill many vitally important matters, but actually prohibits its intervention in . many things that call aloud for immedi ate remedy. The people at large do not understand the limitations under which we act, nor do they realize that frequent ly we are even more disgusted than they at our inability to do things that we are more than anxious, but helpless Ie gaily, to undertake."
