Talk Topic i Nomination of Wa-Tan-Ye club officers will be held at the nex f meeting of the club, Wednesday evening, Jan. 19, it was an- f nounced at the Tuesday noon luncheon at the Hotel Hanford i Miss Mildred Kuhlemeier intro- j duced. Dr. Samuel F. Griesemer * government meat inspector for the past 30 years who talked on i bis work, pointing out that the i history of his profession began i! when man first realized that ^ there ; is;a direct connection be\ tween animal and man. He said i that the iirst U. S. meat inspec- 3 tion laws were passed in 1889 and . that they are the standard of the j present day meat inspection laws. 1 In referring to the tests, Doc^ tor Griesemer said, "We have a ; laboratory control of the product j as well as of ingredients that go =1 m the product. These are tested ~ periodically through laboratory i analysis. We have 5 laboratories * that deal in this analysis and we have 6 pathological laboratories m different parts of the United States. The packer does not pay anything for inspection--the consumer pays the bill. While the · government is spending considerable money, we too are spending considerable money: In Mason City our payroll amounts to about 52,500 every 2 weeks. Most of our men live in Mason City." "Miss Olive Larson, president, made an appeal for phonograph records, games, ash trays, magazines, cross word puzzles, books etc., to be sent to the U -S o' center at the Great Lakes where a_ former Mason City Wa-Tan-Ye member, Miss Ellen Smith,' is employed by the American Red -Cross.
