( ... — ii-ii- •• 11-i •• Mankind's Conscience Is Its Sole Defense Mafor Al Williams is probably abosit as well qualified to write about serial warfare as any man alive. And in n series of recent articles Major Williams makes it plain that there is precious little exaggeration in the horrible Stories we have been hearing about the things the next war will do to civilians. Every airman in Europe, says Major Wiflaims. takes it for granted that the next war will see tremendous blr.ws launched by air against the great cities. The- powers are nursing bomhs (hat will penetrate and destroy the deepest "bcfmb proof." They have incendiary bombs that will start fire? no fire department can extinguish. i What has happevfed in Spain End China, he hemarks. will look mild in rnmtjarison with what will happen when a really big war breaks out. [ It makes about :he ugliest, picture that civilized men have had to look at \ «'fnce th« days of Tamburlaine. fc? there any defense against this frightful thing? fo a military sense, there probarly is not. Major Williams says flatly that the air raid defenses so far perfected are little less than pitiful. Bombers can r«-acl» a given city before defending planes can get into the air! They can fly anove the rang« of anti-aircraft guns. They can hit jnst. about any tarkef they Choose, and they can destroy any target they hit. That answer is only to be expected. If the race sets out to return to the kind of savagery that made the old Assyrian kings exterminate the populations M captured cities, it can do it in spite of everything. Our one defense lies In that frailest and yet mightiest of all forces—the conscience of mankind. It is not too fete to rally the common- decency of mankind and assert, once and for all. that thi* kind of warfare is hideously and inexcusably wrong—so &e&ta crime that no conceivable plea of military expediency can justify it. On that truth, 3 solid front of the world's peoples can be formed And rf people can be induced to show that they feel that way, the military ex- iserts may yet be held in check. Perhaps this offers little.hope. But no other defense offers any hope at an. If.oar plain sense of right and wror.g asserts itself, there may yet he a chance to avert the threatened return to barbarism.

Journal rf tha American Medical Assoclafloa, tad K Effete, the 8e*Hh,Maf3ttta«. A 23-Year War Has Been Waged Against Harmful Foods and Drugs , from new untried products which were {Thfe & the first of five articles In whith Dr. PSshbein discusses the protection afforded by national - tend and drug legislation in the -United States.) „ 1ft 1985' two books and two- extraordinary individuals gave to the United States its first pure food and drug legislation. The books were "The Jangle," by Upton Sinclair, and the "Great American Fraud." by Samuel Hopkins Adams. The first of these volumes tfealt with the unsanitary conditions in the t'cod industry, and the second with the gross abuses that exicted in he sal* of patent medicines in the United States. The individuals who assumed leadership were Harvey Wiley and Theodore Roosevelt. The result of this combination was the adoption of the Food and Drugs Act of 1906. At that tim« modern* advertising had not been begun to resemble what it is today. The radio had not yet come actively into the picture. There were not yet the great syndicates which plan for nation-wide distribution of advertising copy. Nothing had as yet been done comparable to the modern effort "direct by mail." Even the billboards were in their infancy. Thus the Food and Drugs Act of 1M6 concerned only a limited number of proprietary medical products, involved only the control of interstate and" foreign commerce, and was concerned only with the label on the product and the package. Furthermore, that act gave the public no protector! launched with nothing resembling scientific study to prove their harm- l«ssness. Before 1906, cosmetics were looked upon askance by most women of respectability and standing. There has been in the past 30 years a great modification of public opinion regarding the use of cosmetics. Some years ago it became obvious that reform was necessary. Then in 1933 appeared the Tugwell, later called the Copeland Food, Drugs and Cosmetics bill, largely supported by the Food and Drugs Administration, the President, and his advisers. The most significant aspect of the proposed legislation was the extent to which it attempted to control advertising apart from the label on the package. The American medical profession at once expressed its approval of the principle of new food and drugs legislation, pointing out that the American people had a right to the greatest protection that the law could afford in relationship to their health.
