Battle in Congress Looms ' # Over Experimental Animals GLORIA BALL Writer The starting gun for what "migh become the biggest antivivtaectlon fight in ten years" has been fired At present the hot spot js Wash ington, where a humane expef mental animal treatment act wa placed before the Senate Labo and Public Welfare Committee 01 May 18. Sponsors include 11 sena tors led by Sen. John Sherma Cooper (R.-Ky.) who championec humane slaughter of food animal in a bill approved by the 85th Con gress. The present Cooper bill provide n general terms for housing rea^ment and disposal of labora ory animals used by persons re ceiving Federal grants. Qualified applications with proper anima acilities would receive a "certlfi cate of compliance" from the Sec retary of Health, Education and Velfare. No grant would be made nd no experiment could be con lucted unless a project plan was iled with the Secretary. Annual reports to the Secretary vould include the numbers of ani mals used and a record of theii isposal. All animals on whom stu lents had practiced surgery would e killed before being allowed to ecover consciousness. Authorized representatives of the Secretary would be assigned police xwers, would have access to all rantee's laboratories and records and could order the destruction of nimals if they saw fit. Symington Denied Spotuorahop Sen. Stuart Symington (D.-Mo.) as declined sponsorship of the coper bill, because he believed he scientific community would not e happy with it. He could not ave been more correct. In a strongly worded denuncia- on, the National Society for Med al Research, backed by 500 scien fie organizations including every ledical college in the U.S., said; "The Cooper bill is identical in s major provisions to the German aw. . . which so encumbered animal experimentation that it ted at the Nuremburg trials as ne reason why some Nazi experi- nentors turned to the use of pris- ners in concentration camps." Dr. Lester R. Dragstedt, NSMR's resident, has labeled the bill "a ops and robbers game to drain way the time and resources of dentists. . ." and "an attempt by he antivivisection cult to strangle ledical research with red tape." Both NSMR and the Humane So- iety of the United States assume hat the National Institutes of iealth, which now administrates medical research grants for the overnment, would be the group given police powers. NTH, although it does not yet ave an official position, is expect ed by informed sources to oppose the bin. Strangely enough, the Humane Society also opposes the Cooper bill, on the grounds that delegating police powers to NIH, if- self a research organisation, is merely ftking the laboratories to police themselves. •Negative Evil' In California, where the Society Is engaged in a bitter HERE'S THE TOTAL SELLING MCTUftC court battle schools, an with two. medical animal protection law that is seemingly stronger than the Cooper bill, has been on the books for ten years. But it never has been enforced, the Society says, largely because public health officers interpret the law to fit their own Ideas. Laws that cannot be enforced are a "negative evil," giving false assurance to the public and protecting those guilty of cruelty, the Society charges. Although no action is expected >efore Congress adjourns, the bill is a "serious > attempt to get some legislation passed," according to Humane Society executive director Fred Myers.

Set Up Guidelines At the other end of the scale 5 a group known as WARDS Welfare of Animals used for Research in Drugs and Surg- ry). This organization works losely with research groups and views much of the animal iroblem as a matter of in- dequate knowledge as to what nimals need rather than as in- entional cruelty. The group wints out that scientsts have onducted few studies aimed at mproving or revaluating lab- ratory animal care. In the absence of tandards, researchers specific around he country were setting up their Jwn guidelines.
