Protective Legislation Was Hastened By "Drue- Deaths" of 1937-38 (This is the third of five articles by Dr. FLshbein in which he discusses the pcwers of protection .afforded by national feed ami drug legislation in the United States:) Two serious incidents of 1937-33 -were no doubt instrumental in caus- " ing Congress to pass promptly the food and drugs legislation which had .been pending before it for six years. These incidents were the many ^deaths which resulted from the tak- •r. ing of elixir of sulfanilamide made ': with diethylene glycol as the solvent, and the deaths from lockjaw following the injection of an unestablished • treatment for cancer. - One of the most significant phases o£ he new food and drugs legislation, - signed by the President on June 25, -•.concerns the distribution of new drugs. This law forbids the introduc- toh, or the delvery for introduction into, interstate or foreign commerce, of any'new drug, unless an application has been submitted to the Secre"~ ..tary of Agriculture. According to the law, the term "drug" means all articles intended- for - use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, or prevention of disease. And the term "new .drug" is defined by the law -to include any drug which is not generally recognized among experts to be safe for use under the conditions recommended or suggested on the label. This, of course, does not concern preparations that are listed in the Phar- ^macopoeia or in the National Fbrmiil- ^jfary, or in the s'uppfements which they . ,-> issue. .. •. - The new law also includes, for the "first time, the innumerable, cosmetics w which have become so important in cur present- existence. Cosmetics are defined as articles other than soap which are intended to be rubber, poured, sprinkled or . sprayed on, introduced into, or otherwise applied to the human body or any .,.,_part thereof, for cleansing, beautify• ing, promoting attractiveness, or al- .tering the appearance. Soaps that are supposed to have medical uses are included in that portion of the law which relates to drugs. , • Under the new law, the Secretary of Agriculture is also authorized to • establish standards for all kinds of • foods. In the case of foods represented as having value for special diets, .- labels may be required containing information concerning their vitamin, mineral, and other dietary properties. • Today research proceeds so rapidly ' that new products are constantly appearing on the market. Moreover, the •profits in the cosmetic field have been in some instances so tremendous that •new products, are rushed hastily into , the market without careful tests either a? o their harmlessness or usefulness. ' ' If the Food and Drugs Administration is provided with adequate funds A Book a Day By Bruc* Catton An Engineer Saw Sabotage A decade ago John D, Littlepage was an Alaskan mining engineer who neither knew nor cared anything about Soviet Russia. When an agent of the Russian government came to him and asked to go to Russia to be '' chief techical expert for the newly- forrnsd Gold Trust, he demurred—on the quite understanding grounds that • the occupational hazards were too »-;:•: at. But he got talked ito it, finally, went to Russia, and spent 10 years there ;is engineer-inchief fro the great drive by which Stalin sought to build up a gold reserve for foreign purchases and for war. And now he tellls about his experiences in an absorbing book named "In Search of Soviet Gold" (Harcourt-Brace: $2.75), written in collaboration with Demaree Bess. As a record of achievement on a wild new frontier his book is as interesting as a yarn of the American wild west. It is even more interesting, however, for the sidelight which it throws on the much talked-of "counter-revolutionary plotting" which led to Stalin's famous purge trails. Mr. Littlepage knows littei and cares less about Russian politics and ideologies. He is concerned only with telling what he saw. And what he- saw, over and over, was sabotage dis- igned to wreck expensive machinery. cripple production, and disrupt the whole mining program; sabotage, moreover, which obviously was performed under the direction of men highly placed under the Communist party. Who was back of this "wrecking" Mr. Littlepage neither knows nor cares. His book is direct testirnany, however, that the wrecking did take place, arid that its motivation reacted to pretty high places. for ;i large staff it can give the people the much needed protection that the law provides. RAISiNC A FAMILY 1 By Olive Roberto Barton Unpleasant. Burdens of Family Life Must Rest Equally Upon Shoulders of Father and Mother Once I knew a man who refused to man. Sometimes it concerns health, consent to a throat oixrntlon on his boy. He didn't precisely veto the surgery, but he wouldn't say "Yes," mentioning that if his wife wanted it done, she could go ahead. She didn't know what to do. If things went wrong, it would !«• her responsibility. Yet she had been told that Brother was getting all his ear infections from a diseased throat. There were more complications and the boy was in a bad way. Time went on. Nothing was done. Every time she brought up the subject the answer was the same. "Well, why don't you go ahead? But you know I dont approve." It was an acute symptom that cans-ed the crisis, and then she took matters into her own hands and had the work done. But not before she had a terrible week imagining all sorts of dire things. And when Brother got better and stronger this man said. "Why didn't you have it attended to long ago?" This was his attitude whenever anything happened that required moral responsibility. He knew that he couldn't live with his own conscience if he said "Go ahead," and then was told that the worst had happened. He wanted someone else to supply the conscience. Preferably his wife. I often i-un across fathers like this sometimes a radical method in handling a domestic problem. In such a crisis, the music simply has to be faced. And it is not 'irt nil fair to put it all on one. Once in awhile things are reversed and the wife rein-Res when it comes to a showdown. Then her husband has to take matters in hand and make the decision. But such cases are rare as By George Ross NEW YORK—These wearying eyes detected a trend., It looks to us as though Pnrk Avenue is going Broad- Way. And vice versa—thnt Broadway is going Park .Avenue.

At such times both parents are equally concerned and neither should be called upon to shoulder the entire burden of choice.

CHAPTER III REACHING the entrance oi the Golden Bowl, Bob Tait found the big doors closed tight. A persistent knocking conjured up the red face of Detective Officer Michael Dunphy. "Hello, Mike," Tait greeted him. "How's chances to get in?" "In is it? You're the first one that's been wanting to get in. The rest have been wanting to .get out." Reluctantly, Dunphy • shifted his huge bulk to admit Tait. The great Bowl was empty now save a comparatively small knot of people down near the orchestra platform. Tait recognized the back of Detective Officer Dannie Feeley, the most persistent of the force from down at headquarters. "Where're all the rest of the mob, Mike?" "Don't worry,"' said Michael Dunphy. "Dannie has watched that. They're upstairs, the women in one room and the men in another, and they're being frisked for suspicious belongings. The worst of it is, about 50 or 75 got out of here right after it happened." The detective sighed wearily. "V/e don't know where they went — an' we don't know, furthermore, who they are. A fine kettle of fish." "Well," Tait answered good- humoredly, "there's nothing like getting in a lot of probable suspects if you're going to commit a murder." "Yeah. I saw a movie once where a murder was committed at a football game." "That was worse than this, anyhow." nr r,' ? / " V/ , e /- "Hello, Bob. Is that a fact? Did you see Mrs. Dombey? band. "Funny thing, the dame he i the two women nre there. If they married just before it happened are, just hang around until I come —she skipped out. That looks along later." "W- AS * * it now? 11 denied Mike Dunphy "Say that was pie ] , fey . As mighty queer." Tait pretended not to hear. He sauntered toward the group, began listening to the questions that Dannie Fee-ley was barking out. The boys in the band seemed obviously broken. If their expressions and voices could be depended upon, they had worshiped Ludden Dombey. And Bob Tait had reason to believe that this was a fact. "All right," said Feeley, then. "You boys can go on home now. But I'll be wanting you. Don't forget that." Tait heard the smooth, well- modulated voice of Harris Rogers. "I'll be glad to stay, Officer Fee- m . compared with thus! At least guys Mr . Dornboy . s al affairs at football games talk sense, I can't understand a word those band players say. That little guy there with the clarinet." The detective raised his voice to mimic the clarinet player. " 'I never saw the tomcat feelin' better,' this little euy tells Dannie. 'He was in the groove tonight. He was sending it out of the agony pipe like nobody's business.' That's the way they talk!" Tait laughed. "That's the Ian- can probably answer any questions the boys could." "That's enough for now," Feeley said. "The question I want O»- swered right now is why Dombey's brand-new wife isn't here." * * * HPAIT saw Rogers smiling toward him. "Perhaps Bob Tait can answer that one. I believe I saw them together just after it . .1- pened." Feeley whirled. "Hello, Bob. Is guage of swing music, Mike. Know tnat a £ ac t? Uid you see Mrs. what they call the dancers?" "No, I do not." "Jitterbugs—and whackies. Sometimes they call them ickies." Dunphy's blue eyes , ward?" Feeley wanted to know. rYell, I hope the saints "I took her to the ladies' lounge. Michael widened. ' preserve u'/ Whore they talk like thot, anything could happen! Jit- l ;.; is right!" "JJun't lot it get you down," Dombey?" "Yes. I was at the table with her and her friend—and Rogers here." "What happened to her after- you Tait advised. ''Remember lived through the jazz ago." "Not only that. I lived through it 'way back to when they were Turkey Trotting. But I wasn't no jitterbug." Dunphy looked over at his cohort, questioning the She was pretty well hit, naturally. Then I asked her friend, Anne Lester, to look after her. I imagine they went on to the apartment they shared." Feeley studied Tait a moment. He .seemed annoyed, arid attempting to hide that annoyance. "You know the address?" Tait gave it to him, and Feeley yelled toward the doleful Mike Dunphy. "Did you hear that, Mike? Get up there and see if "You bet, Dannie." Dunphy disappeared into the hallway. As casually as his trembling fingers would permit. Bob Tait lit a cigaret. "I'll drift along, Dannie. If you need me for anything, I'll be around." Feeley looked scornful. "If I need you I'll be in a bad fix, Mr. Tait." But there was the hint of a lilt in Feeley's voice. He had always liked Bob Tait, and they had naturally encountered each other often "Good night, Rogers." The manager of The Swinga- teers nodded. "So long, Tait. Thanks for taking care of Mrs. Dombey." The remark nettled Tait. He wondered, a little angrily, if Harris Rogers felt that his job of managing The Swingateers went on to managing Lud Dumbey's widow. He didn't care for the proprietary air Rogers had shown; and, above all, he didn't like the way Rogers had set Feeley on him. * * * JDUT there was little time to think about that now. The moment Tait was out of sight of Feeley and Rogers he took to his heels in earnest. A half minute later he was at the curb, his hand on the handle of a taxi door. "Claremont Apartments," he ordered. "And I'm in a real rush." He hoped that Mike Dunphy was still al the cigar stand, choosing a favorite smoke before starting for the Claremont Apartments. And if Mike ran true to form, that was where he was. He hoped something else, .00— and fervently. It was that he'd find Myrnu at the apartment. There'd be plenty to explain to Feeley if .she hadn't shown up there. And if she was there Tait wanted to talk to her — talk to her before Dunphy and Feeley arrived to badger she didn't mea into saying things "I suppose I'm nuts," he told himself. "I ought to keep out of this." But lie knew that he wasn't going to keep out of it. (To Be Continue*!) not be n trend.

Jnpino's owner and master hnd come upon bad times since 1929, for the lean yenrs knocked the tent shows in this land into n cocked hat. 'So Japino was forced upon the relief rolls, and with a loss of pride, trouped under the WPA's Big Tent. A little while ngo, some WPA bcnuro- crats decided to dispense with the services of Japino who by this time had won the affections of many children around the town. Word weTit forth that the axe was about to fall upon the Moved pachyderm. And hundreds of school children wrote penny postcards to President Rosevelt at the White House, pleading Tor executive clemency. The Little White Fadther in Washington saw their point. He reprieved Japino of three bales of hay per day. Making n Monkey of (Irlcf The other elephantine episode must be prefaced by n tragedy thnnl ocetir- ed in the Prospect Park Zoo in Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago. You may have read in news dispatches that two elephants named Dill and Hidn were bulling each other around by tho brink of a concrete pit there one day and Hint Hilda fell in. Her legs bro'/e in the fall and her spine snapped—and they put two powerful cartridges through her bead to the heartbreaking bereavement of Bill. Then they feared for Bill's state of mind, rcali/ing that elephant doesn't easily forget. Along came n noted Belgin explorer. Armand Denis, on a visit to New York. In his posseskm, he said, is a lame and congenial bnlxm. He calls her "Tillie Finkas." He thinks she would be great company for the elephant Bill. So that is what the 7.00 authories are weighing in their minds now. Should Tillie be given the chance tc promote a beautiful friendship'.'
