1 , I Will Pick Up Samples at All Soda Fountains. STATE STARTS A TEST. How Long Is Term of Chief Aecoint - ' I ant Under the 5ew Law I ... BdccUI to TV Herald. Indianapolis, March 13. Crushed fruits and fruit syrups. such as are used in soda fountains are to be subject - eu to every test known to State Chem ist Barnard - Wore the soda season gets fairly" Under way.' In order to make the tests as practical as pos sible the department has installed a soda fountain given by a certain manufacturing company.' Mr. Barnard, who 1b the state food and drug commissioner, will make the tests thorough and will cover every part of the state by having inspectors go around and buy samples of the syrups used at all soda fountains in order to get right at them when they are not looktag. No one will know when an inspector is in town and the dealers will not know when they sell samples to an inspector, bscause they will not know the Inspectors. ,Mr. Barnard has contended that It is pos sible to preserve fruit in syrup for use f In fountains without using "benzoatel of soda and the test will be directed to that end. "We are not contending that beV zoate of soda is harmful physiologically," said Mr. Barnard, "but by the use of benzoate fruit and syrup manufacturers are enabled to make use of inferior fruits. Frequently they are in a badly (decomposed condition (when the manufacturers make use of them. If benzoate of soda is barred the dealers will be compelled to use good fruit and good syrup." Many of the soda fountain proprietors of the state have informed the inspectors from the food and drug department that they are abandoning the use of fruits and pyrups in which benzoate of sojda is used, and are buying the material in quart cans or jars, thus doing away with the necessity of using such a preservative as benzoate of soda.
