Thursday, March 10, 1966 •tar DR. GODDARD GIVES F.D.A. A STRONG SET OF TEETH WASHINGTON (AP) — Thef new commissioner of food and' : drugs is a man of action — "I; like to see things get done" —j ani he is showing it in trying to; clean up during his first 90 days' in office all pending drug cases] that are ready for decision. Dr. James L. Goddard took his oath as commissioner Jan, 18. \Vith a smile, he says he in-i herited a kit of long-standing j drag cases which have been re-S ferred to as "the dead cats in; the closet." In a drive that already has led to many people in the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare referring to him as "Go-Go Goddard," he has announced a number of major clean-up decisions in less than two months. So far, these are topped by the sweeping action of Tuesday for ultimate removal from the market of all nonprescription antibiotic lozenges and some other antibiotic preparations which may be purchased without prescription and bear presents Cottons a' la Carte Fashion Show featuring McCALL'S PATTERNS and fabrics by EVERFAST with Everglaze* Easy-Care Come see what you can make with Everfast® cottons in inviting weaves, exciting colors.

A spokesman said the four orders added up to case of the •most sweeping drug removals the agency ever has ordered. Asked about his philosophy in reaching decisions with such widespread impact, Goddard said in an interview : "Basically I try to take facts available and make decision based on that factual data. "This agency some two years ago offered the manufacturers of these antibiotic products an opportunity to come forward within 90 days with presentations as to the efficacy — the effectiveness of these drugs. "There were no such submittals. "I do feel that an undue length of time had passed, and that there can be no claim of precipitate action. "I am not saying that the compounds can't be marketed without the antibiotic. I feel sure some will be. Many were made before antibiotics were available and they were useful and I feel sure some will again be marketed with the antibiotic removed." He said that when he became commissioner he knew that the antibiotic proceeding had been pending a long time and askea for data on it. He is a physician, the first to head FDA in recent years, and is a career commissioned officer in the Public Health Service. "There was a presentation several weeks ago by the staff," Goddard related. "I asked for more data. When I received it and was satisfied with it, I took action. "I like to see things get done. I don't do things just to do things but when I consider the available data sufficient on. which to base action, I say let's go ahead with the decision. "And. of course, there are ample safeguards for the manufacturers built into the administrative procedures which provide for public hearing." He pointed out that the decision to require ultimate removal [from the market of the [hundreds of antibiotic products was based on failure to show effectiveness but added "some scientists viewed their continued use with concern, contending there are dangers in repeated taking of small doses of antibiotics." The products already in the channels of manufacture, dis tribution and sale will be not be seized or recalled, Goddaro said, because it was not though that the contended - dangers "were pervasive enough to re- j quire a recall." "This was a part of the who! problem, as well as the lack o effectiveness," he said.

James V. Allred made it unlawful. Texans by the thousands now go to such horse race centers as Suniand Park in New Mexico and to Oaklaw nPark in Hot Springs, Ark., to place their bets. Quarterhorse tracks at Raton and Ruidoso, N.M. also attract many Texans, horse owners and bettors alike.
