into jus ahead of Thanksgiving last fai when the announcement cam out of Washington that the in nocent looking little red objec known as the cranberry rhigh be an agent for the transmis sion of cancer In making the announcement Arthur Flemming secretary of the Department of Health Edu cation and Welfare made it clear that the offending berries were from a limited area where a certain weedkiller had been used principally Oregon and Washington But housewives generally werent disposed to take a chance A Cranberry growers in other sections of the country notably Massachusetts and Wisconsin set up a mighty complaint that they had been financially in jured in a big way With some plausibility they demanded thai be reimbursed for their losses during the cranberrv peakseason Backed up by the principal supplier of thechemical thc head of Ocean Spray Cranber ries Inc cooperative that handles about fourfifths of the crop asserted that humaa be ings would have to consume carloads of cranberries treated with the herbicide to suffer any ill effects AFTER A PERIOD of noisy controversy the industry and Ihe government agreed to co operate in an inspection pro gram All uncontaminated

somewhat but the indus try suffered a loss running into the millions Incidentally cran berries have become a S50 mil lion crop in the United States During and since that contro versy Secretary Flemming has defended his course on the grounds that it was his duly to protect the public from even a chance of harm In doing this he and his department made history Never before had an arm of government reached ou so far to protect consumers when it meant painful losses to producers The cranberry crisis there fore was an important mile stone in the expansion of gov ernment regulation of foods since that first national pure food law in 1906 It was the symbol ofa growing responsibil ity on government to guard over the health and wellbeing of the American public WHEN THE FIRST port food law was adopted 54 years ago the major problems were deemed to be adulteration and false labeling unsanitary prac tices in handling food and the unregulated addition of poison ous substances to processed foods Some of the evidence un covered in connection with the passage of that 1906 law seem unbelievable on a basis of to days standards in the food in dustry Here are some of the findings Potted chicken containcc no chicken adulterated wrtti shells Butter adulterated with lard Maple made of cane sugar Extensive use of coal tar dye to color food Use of acids and formaldehyde as
