Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 15, 1935, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY APRIL 15 1935 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS EJECTION ONE NO 158 Copeland Fights on Food Drugs Bill Has Hard Road to Travel By HERBERT PJLUMMEK ASHINGTON April 15 For something like two years the senates only M gray haired deliberate Royal S Cope land of New York had la bored to obtain passage of a new food and drugs bill in congress Failure and disappointing de lays have dogged his efforts from the start It is estimated the measure has been rewritten as many as a dozen times since the original draft cred ited with being the brain child of Braintruster Rex Tugwell first submitted to congress in the spring of 1933 During those two years in the neighborhood of 200 witnesses have paraded before the doctor and his committee It has been an almost continuous job as far as he is con cerned Copeland admitted when he suc ceeded in getting the bill before the after the workrelief bill had been disposed of finally that despite the fact it bore his name he was nothing more than its Forced to Retreat I have he said rath er ironically that many a step father loves his stepchild and pro ceeded to lavish as much care and affection on the bill as he could command After a week of hammering away Copeland was forced to make a strategic retreat Under a threat to send the bill back to committee for another revision thus losing all that he had gained the doctor agreed to shelve his stepchild on the senate calendar without preju dice until senators are in a better mood Many senators believe however the Copeland stepchild is far from being out of the woods yet A companion bill in the house sponsored by Representative Mead of New York proposes not a new food and drugs act as does the Copeland measure but drastic amendment of the present law the 30 year old Dr Wiley Favor Mead BiH During debate on the Copeland bill in the senate the question arose time and again whether it would not be better for the senate to pro ceed along the lines of the Mead bill The argument was advanced that under the Wiley bill a vast amount of litigation had been threshed out helpful both to the government and to all others con cerned Substitution of an entirely new bill it was argued would mean the loss of these legal interpreta tions and going over the same ground again Regardless of that argument the fact remains that if the senate passes the Copeland bill and the house the Mead proposal the measure ultimately to prevail will be written when the two bills go to conference Doc Copelands stepchild may
