JUSTIFIES ITSELF f. Philip Drinker Points Out Many Advantages of Such Rooms By HOWARD W. HL/\KHSI,EE (Antedated Preat Leaned Wire) CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 28.— Ton can do better work in an air-eon- dltloned room In hot weather. You can not count on such a room to reduce colds at any season. Those aro "applications of air con- lltlonlnK to normal life" presented oday at tho Harvard tercentenary celebration In a symposium on environment by Philip Drinker, professor of Industrial hygiene at the Harvard School of Public Health. Advantages Shown "Will we have fewer colds," Professor Drinker asked, "If w« control :he humidity In our homos, If wo Ion- 7.0 tho air, or If wo sterilize U with jltra-vlolet light? It would be pleasant to answer these questions posl- Ively, but at tho present time there aro no data from any source which we havo seen, which Justify affirmative answers. "Air conditioning: more than Ju»tl- les Itself In simply making tho atmosphere more comfortable than It otherwise would be. Bettor work Is done In moderate, pleasant titmos- pheres than under extremes of any sort. Tho success of many Indus' trial processes depends on environment control." Iteinoveft Odors For smells, he said, air condition- UK effectively remove human body odors. But It docs not kill the smell of tobacco In a smoking room "at least to the non-Hmokor." "Total or partial removal of air- jorne bacteria by air conditioning," he said," has boon claimed by various manufacturers, but the Just If lea. tlon for these claims Is not at al! Impressive." But, ho added, those who sell air- conditioning, "have every right to make much of the fact" that air filtration will reduce pollens to the point where the person susceptible to hay fever "can usually obtain relief." "It may be In the future that germ-free air will become as nucos sary as germ-free water or milk," he asserted.
