Odham Would Abolish "Milk Commission"

THERE IS no doubt about what J. Brailey Odham, candidate for Governor,
thinks about the Florida Milk Commission, according to a Florida Times-
Union story of his speech in Jacksonville, February i)th.
Odham was quoted as saying, "I do not think this price-fixing board
serves any necessary public service and I urge its abolition."
Elsewhere in this issue of the Florida Dairy News is quoted a state-
ment of a somewhat different opinion concerning the Florida Milk Coinm-
mission by a group of recognized leaders in the Florida Dairy Industry.
There can also be found an account by an official of the State Depart-
ment of Agriculture of the phenomenal development of the Dairy Indus-
try in Florida since the Florida Legislature passed the law creating the
Florida Milk Commission.

Essentials In Human Relations

NOTWITHSTANDING THE absolute necessity for any business to make a pro-
fit, it seems logical to remind ourselves that the success of a business enter-
prise is not complete if profits are the only motive. Good will and friend-
ship of customers and employees cannot be secured if the business relation-
ship is put entirely upon the profit motive. An employee wants to feel
that others are interested in his work, and that his co-workers have the same
standards as he. Most of us want something more out of the work week
than the weekly pay check, and it is hard to express what we do want. Cus-
tomers want to feel that the salesmen have the service motive back of their
calls and that the firm's employees have a genuine desire to serve, too.
When we speak of the essentials of human relations, there seems no
better time than now to remind ourselves to try to show more interest in
the other fellow and improve our personal relationships, all through the
year. -H. H. COWIE, Pres. Curtis, Inc.

Ice Cream Industry Is 100 Years Old

BORN IN 1851 in Baltimore, Maryland, the Ice Cream Industry celebrated
its one hundredth birthday in 1951.
Ice Cream, called by many the glamor dish of the dairy industry, has
contributed to the development of a young (at 100) growing, progressive
and vital industry. The growth of ice cream manufacturing in the United
States parallels the most inspiring stories of the building of industry in a
free market. Recipes for ice cream's forerunner sherbet, and ice cream it-
self, were known in Europe and Asia hundreds of years before the ice
cream industry became established in America. It took American techno-
logical know-how, mass production and distribution methods to change
ice cream-from a dish rarely made and served almost entirely to the
wealthy or the nobility-to the universal favorite within the reach of every-
one in the land of the free.
Some indication of ice cream's future can be obtained from ice cream's
past. The first wholesale plant was operated by Jacob Fussell, a milk
dealer in Baltimore, Maryland, in the year 185 1. Mr. Fussell found that by
contracting with his farmers for their milk he had incurred a problem
with a surplus of milk and cream. He turned to the old recipes for ice
cream and thus the industry was born.

For Our Youth Readers

Your Future Is What You Make It
NOTE: This is the second of a series of disculssions on "Choosing Your Voratlion". It is of in-
terest to both youth and paIreots.
KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO WELL. After you have considered thoroughly and listed the things
that you like to do (article x, Feb. issue), ask yourself what things you do "best".
Your school record may help you. Are your marks highest in the subjects you like best?
Get the advice of your parents, teaches, club leader and others who know you
well. If your are uncertain about your ability or interests you may wish to take some


of the widely available aptitude and per-
sonality tests, designed to give you a better
picture of you. Often these tests are es-
pecially valuable in warning you against
entering an occupation where some defii
ciency will handicap you.
When you find the point at which your
abilities, interests and personality traits
coincide, you have a powerful combination
[or success.
Select a Kind of Work
You now know WHAT )'YOU CA.V DO
and WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO. What
occupation will you choose?
At this point, those who are seriously
studying the problem of selecting their
life's work or vocation, should check care-
fully through a list of "150 major occulpa-
tions" contained in this guide and which
will be furnished upon request to the
"Dairy News".
Although the "Dictionary of Occupa-
tional Titles" lists about i8,ooo different
ways of earning a living, three-quarters of
all American workers will be found in
these major occupations.
At first, it may seem difficult to choose
from even so small a list as 15o. But this
formula should serve you well: Select a
kind of work, not a specific job. Specific
jobs come and go as technical develop-
ments and changing public tastes throw
some products and services into the dis-
card and create new ones. But kinds of
work change little. With a trained mind
and skilled hands, you will find yourself
fitted for a number of jobs of the kindt
you have chosen; you will need to be less
concerned about whether there will be ia
specific job waiting for you.
Measure Your Vocational Choice
By now you may have discovered several
vocations suited to your tastes and abilities.
If so, all the better. You can consider
other factors which will help you to make
a wise decision. You may finally decide to
pursue one of your interests as a vocation


and another as a hobby.
Here are three yardsticks by which you
can measure each vocational selection:
i. Contentment.
2. Income.
3. Opportunity.
Both at this point and later in testing
your choice, these yardsticks will guide
your thinking.
The Yardstick of Contentment
I'erhaps your most important tool for
measuring any vocational choice is the
yardstick of contentment. If you like your
work and can do it well-if you feel that
it is an important service to others-if you
take pride in it-then you will be more
likely to gain recognition, to advance and
to earn more.
Analyze the kind of work you have se-
lected. Does it require travel-or will you
be able to live at home? Is it constructive?
Is it constantly changing-or is it routine?
To one person the all-important thing
is the farmer's contact with the outdoors
and with growing things-to another, it

is small-town friendliness or the stimulat-
ing challenge of the city.
The Yardstick of Income
Now using the yardstick of income, in-
vestigate the average earning for the oc-
cupation you have selected. Have you the
ability andt persistence to travel the hard
road to abuove-average salaries? Or will
you be content to accept less money for the
satisfaction which the work will give you?

and this Act has been onl the books of'

The 1939 A\ct increased the lelnbers of'
the Florida Milk Commission to seven,
viz., (I) aI Producer of milk, (2) at Producer-
Distributor of milk, (3) a Distributor of
milk, (,I) a Melmber of the Consumning
Public, (5) the Commissioner of Agricul-


ture, or Iis designate, (6i) the State Health
Officer, or his designate, (7) Administrator
of the Comnmission. These Miembers of the
Florida Milk Commission are appointed
by thle Governor of Florida, for a term of
four years and their terms are staggered.
Emiergenry Veedl for thIe Cotin i.s.sion
The period prior to the enactment of
the Milk Board in 1933, and particularly
the year ilnlnediately preceding its pas-
'age, will long Ie remnellbered by those
who wer eIngaIged in the I)airy business at
that time. Milk Prodtucrs, Ilroder-sl)is-
tributors and D)istributors were caught in
it wild era of price cutting, prke wars and
uncthi(ac l and indiscriminate practices
whicsI threatened to completelyy disrupt
and bankrupt the entire industry. Milk
was known to sell for as little as i 0 per
clquart andt a loaf of breath given with it.
Chaotic conditions olf this kind pre-
\ailed until it beca;ine (clear in the minds
of natny of those ill the Dairy Industr)
andl unaniy of the Iealth authorities of the
State that, if the lpeoplle of Florida were
to have a stlpplly of milk, something must
be done.
Not only the milk supply but the very
existence of the Dairy farms and a large
majority of the )Dairy plants of Florida
was seriously threatened.
It clearly followed that if a Producer
of mlilk did not receive adequate compen-


station for Iris labor and for his product,
that he, in turn, could not adequately
compensate his hell), could not adequately
buy the necessary feed for his cattle, could
not maintain pastures, and most assuredly
could not produce a clean, Ihealthful bot-
tie of milk, according to the regulations
of the various health regulations that
exist throughout the state of Florida. The
health of the Consumning Public, if such
conditions were allowed to continue, was
in jeopardy. It was obvious, then, as it
would be obvious now, that if all con-
trols exercised by the Milk Comnmission
were lifted, that perhaps the first to suf-
fer would be the health conditions of the
state.
In 1i933, before the Industry was stabil-
ized by the creation of the Milk Control
Boartl, and its subsequent successor, the
Florida Milk Commnission, capital (risk
capital) could not be obtained by a new
venture at either the production level, or
the distribution level, and, as a result
thereof, production in Florida in 1933 did
not come anywhere near meeting the re-
quirements of our citizens, much less meet
the requirements of the visitors to our state
during the winter tourist season.

Florida's Dairy Industry Becomes of Age

By JOHN MI. SCOTT, Chief Daily SupeV isor, Slate I)Dept. of Agr-iculture


THE FLORIDA Legislature of )2o) enactetl
into Law the first piece of state-wide leg-
islation governing the production, proces-
sing, labeling and marketing of Milk and
Cream. This Law was placed in the
hands of the Commissioner of Agricul-
ture. Nathan Mayo, to administer. Mr.
M[ayo was thoroughly sold on the idea
that Florida could build a great D)airy
Industry if properly encouraged antd pro-
tected from unfair competition from in-
ferior dairy products.
Commissioner 'Mayo appointed the
writer as Chief Milk Inspector with two
assistants. Offices were opened in Jack-
sonville on October 1, 1929.
Since this was the first state-witle Milk
and C:ream Act, information had to be
gathered as to just who was producing
and marketing fluid milk and cream, the
conditions under which these protlucts
were being g produced, processed and sold.
This task took several months as the force
was small and the funds were very
limited.
At this time, 1i29, a great deal of milk
and cream was being importetl into Flori-
da, especially during the winter tourist
season. This milk and cream came from
Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, Tennessee,
Missouri and Indiana and the quality
wasn't too good as it came from unim-
proved contlensery milksheds. After the
labeling requirement of tile Law was put
into effect, thle public was aware that at
least otit-of-state products were not as
Fresh as those labeletl "PRODUCED IN
FLORIDA".
The demand for Florida produced milk
encouraged the dairy farmers of the state
to enlarge their herds and produce more
milk. Thie importation of milk dropped
to almost nothing in the 193o-3i season
and only a very small amount was in-
ported during the next eleven years or
until we swung into the war.
Milk and Milk Products. Law
The Legislature of 1931 saw fit to eiiat
a new law which broadened the scope of
the old Milk and Cream Law, this Act
being known as the Milk antd Milk Pro-
ducts Law. Again Commissioner Mayo
was selected to administer the legislation
and the force gained another member, J.
M. Burgess. The office was moved to
G;ainesville allnd the state divided into
three administrative areas about this
t:me. Smith with headquarters in Jack-
sonville, Shlaw with headquarters in
Tamrnpa. and Burgess with headquarters in
Marianna.
Milk production began to climnl alndtl
Florida dairymen were now snpplyhl ng al
of the milk needed for fluid consunnIptio:!.


JOHN '\[. SCOTT


lThe Tick Eradication program gave
lairying quite a boost. Better cows could
Ibe brought into the State without danger
of loss. The University olf Floritlda, EN-
tension Division, and Counlty Agri(:ultur-
al agents started pasture improvements
progranls andI encouraged the use of
better cows antd purebred Ibills. This
brought oil an increase of production per
cow with a small increase in feet antd
labor cost. Today we have about the
salnle class of cows in our tldairies as are
found elsewhere. The reason for this is
that cows illn our commerci-al dairies are
replcedtl about every four years, antl
tdairynmen travel all the Unitedl States
looking for good cows to buy. Thle or-
ganization of the Daiiry Hertl ilnprove-
nieiit \sso(iaition toetllher with txwele or

Ihave caiusedt niore daiirmnen to raise tlieii

cows.
Frozen 1)e.sse)s ILaWI Pl ((d
Tlhe Legislatiure of 933 enacted
another piece of dairy legislation, Tlhe
1 rozen )Desserts Actt, goxeriing the mann-
bacture andc sale of ice cream anI(l otler
frozen dairy foods. Ihllis Act set ul) stan-l
dards of Sanitation, quality of products
used anild a foodt solitdls pier gllon 1 require-
ment, whlichI controlled the amount of
overrun. Commllnlissioner Mayo was agaiin
chosen to administer thLe ;\ct. so thllis was
adtldetld to the other duties of tile Chief
)Dairy Superixisor andi his stall.
Thle U. S. Department of Agriculture


reports for the year 1932-1933, 3,5o,000o
gallons of various types of Frozen Desserts
manufactured in Florida.
The Frozen I)esserts A'.t through its re-
quirements of mInanuacture under proper
sanitary conditions, good quality mater-
ials antd control of overrun has increased
the public tldeniand for ice cream andi its
relatetl products until in the year, 1950-
1951. the Florida Ice Cream Industry
manult:actured and sold 11.048.136 gal-
lons. People are eating ice cream Ibecause
it is good.
Milk andl Icte Cream production was
steadily growing, many new dairies were
being built, new milk plants were built
andi the older ones remodeled antd new
equipment installetl. The Industry was
able to take of the requirements for fluid
milk the year round until the war, and the
State turned into an Armed Camp. The
"powers that be" in Washington would
not allow the purchase of equipment to
increase tile capacity of a dairy or milk
plant yet tlumpedl a million andI one half
inew milk antd milk products consumers
in our lap. We survived, but we are not
quite sure just how.
The state acquired during the W.P.A.
days an old meat-packing plant in Chip-
ley, and it was remodeled into a small
butter-making plant. The Dairy Depart-
ment spent considerable time helping to
develop this operation, but the low price
of butter antd the high transportation
costs made the operation unprofitablle.
The plant was closed after two or three
)years of operation but was soon re-opened
as a;I fluid milk receiving station antd with
tile war time demand, success was
achieved.
Another fluid milk receiving station
was Ibuilt in Marianna later antd these two
stations have led to the dairy intlustry de-
velopment that has taken place in North-
west Florida.
While this tlairy development in North-
wxestern Floritld;a was taking place the other
sections were not asleep. The milk shedls
of Jacksonville. Tainipa, St. Petcrsburg.
Orlando, Tal llahassee, W\est Paln Bealch,
Ft. I.auderdale andl Miami were enlarging
andi producing much more milk. A re-
ceiv-ing statioli was built at Moore Haven
and a number of new dairymen were go-
ing in business. VWith all of this increase,
Florida is once more in the position of be-
ing able to produce all the milk needed
for fluidl consumption and able to spare
some to Georgia.,
Truly, the Floritla Dairy industry has
come of age in the period, October 1929
to date antd has bIecome one of Florida's
tolp industries.

1952 State Fair Dairy Show


Considered Best on Record


FLORIDA DAIRYMEN are credited with bring-
ing together at the 1952 State Fair, Febru-
ary 5-9 in Tamlpa, the greatest show of
pure-bred dairy animals ever assembled
in Florida.
Thousands upon thousands of Fair visi-
tors got a first view of Florida's finest
Guernsey and Jersey dairy cattle seldom
seen back on the dairy farms by the aver-
age Florida resident.
The winning awards were announced
and presented to dairy exhibitors at a spe-
cial luncheon at the Floridan Hotel, spon-
sored by the Florida Guernsey Cattle Club
and the Florida I)airy Intlustry Associa-
tion.
In presenting these awards, Assistant
Fair Manager, Mr. J. 2. Huskisson, stated
that "the Florida Dairy Industry may well
be proud of the splendid showing of pure-
bred dairy animals at the 1952 State Fair.
Visiting livestock judges and other visitors,
Mr. Huskisson said, "had been heard to
remark that 'this dairy show would be a
credit to any State Fair' "
C. W. Reaves, State Extension Dairy-
man of the University of Florida, who par-
ticipated in planning the 1952 State Fair
dairy show and in presenting the awards,
received the praise of Mr. John Sargeant,
president of the Florida Guernsey Cattle
Club and other spokesmen, for the large
part which he has had in recent years in
encouraging better breeding practices and
the establishing of more pure bred herds
in the Florida Dairy Industry.
Gulernsey and jersey Breeders Share
Breeder Awards
The only competition between all breed-
ers was for the "Premier Exhibitor" and
"Premier Breeder" trophies.
The Premier Exhibitor award, spon-
sored by the Florida Dairy Industry Asso-
ciation, went to the Welkener (Holly Hill)
Jersey Dairy. V. C. Johnson and Sons
(Dinsmore Farms) Guernsey b r e e d e r s,
Jacksonville, won the "Premier Breeder"
award, sponsored by the Florida Grower
Magazine.
Judging the Dairy Show was Dr. H. H.
Kildee, retired dean of Iowa State Col-
lege. A widely known authority on live-
stock, Dr. Kildee had many complimentary
things to say about the quality of the dairy
animals brought before him in the big
Livestock Pavilion.
Mr. Jim Schee of Largo did an excellent
job of handling the cattle show in the role
of superintendent.
Guernsey Division judging Azwards
The Boutwell Dairy of Lake Worth,
showed the grand champion bull and Dins-
more Farms, Jacksonville the grand chain-


pion female. I)insmore Farrms also showed

serve grand champion bull was the aged

pany, according to an announCement made

Manager of the firm, and W. j. Barritt, Jr.
of Tampa, President of the Borden Com-
party Florida Division, who said the tran-
saction was effective immediately. The
company will be known as Borden's Bas-
sett Dairies.
The transaction brings together two
names in the dairy food field well known
to residents of this area. The Bassett firm
has beeun distributing milk in Tallahassee
anti vicinity for 31 years. Borden grocery
aInd cheese prodlucts have been available
in grocery stores throughout this section of
Florida for many years.

26 miles east of Tallahassee. Bark in the
2o's, in the early years of the operation, W.
W. Bassett, Sr., produced and dlistributedl
milk as a side line to his nursery business.
As his dairy business began to grow, he de-
voted more time to it, and, in tse late 20'S,
slor his nursery in order to give full time
to the dairy business.
In 1931 he installed his first pasteurizer
which resulted in further expansion. The
Bassetts, father and sons, had always
dreamed of having a hig, modern milk
plant in Tallahassee where the bulk of


their trade was located. In 1947, tle busi-
ness was incorporated and preparations
were maie to move the business to Tal,!-
hassee. Operations began in the new
plant here on June 1, 1948.
.At present, the business has arounri too
employees, and the payroll amounts to
$Iuo,ooo per year. The 90 producers who
supply milk to tse Dairy receive close to a
million dollars a year. These figures in-
clude the Tallahassee, P'anama City, and
Crestview operations.
Officers of the Bassett Company were:
W. W. Bassett, Sr., President; 1). A. Hat-
cher, Plant Superintentlent ant Vice P'resi-
dent, and Curry j. Bassett, Secretary[treas-
urer and General Manager. W. W. Bas-
sett, Sr., and W. W. Bassett, Jr., will con-
tinue to operate their -,ooo-acre dairy flarm
in Monticello, and will be the distributors
of milk anti other dairy products east of
Tallahassee, as well as produce milk foi
the new company. Ray S. Bassett is in-ma-
ger of the branch plant in Panama City,
Florida The Bassett plant whitcI is lo1
ratcd in Crestview is managed by Lanmar

ern Dairies, Miami as a Director to suc-
ceed L. S. Robinson, who moved from the
State and named Mr. J. N. McArthur of
Miami Association Treasurer.
i --Named Jack Dew, of Southern I)air
ies, Jacksonville to serve as 1952 June
Dairy Month Committee Chairman.
12-Elected members of the )952 M'lk
and Ice Cream Plant Committee with
Russell Bevan, St. Petersburg Borden Co.
Manager as chairman.
13-Requested the Live Stock Board
and State Health authorities to adopt
more adequate regulations relating to
problems arising from the outbreak of
Anthrax in some Florida Dairy herds.
14-Set May 1-2 as 1952 Annual Dairy
Field Day dates at Gainesville.
5--Set June 11-13 as 1952 Association

gem aboard a Fifth Avenue bus: "You
know, I wouldn't say anything about

And oh, brother, is this good. ."

It Pays to Use


for PASTURES

V-C Pasture Fertilizer produces extra yields of low-cost,
high-quality green feed which animals can harvest.
V-C helps grasses and legumes to make quick, vigorous
growth, rich in proteins, minerals, vitamins and other
nutrients.
Grazing this high-quality, appetizing green forage,
dairy cows increase milk production and meat animals
rapidly put on valuable weight. Pastures, fertilized with
V-C, yield more and better grazing and also furnish
many extra grazing days.
Consult a trained V-C Field Representative, to obtain
information on the best methods and fertilizers to use
for pasture improvement on your farm. The V-C Fac-
tories, at Nichols and Jacksonville, formulate pasture
fertilizers suited to all Florida soil types as well as to
the various pasture grasses.
V-C Superphosphate or V-C Complete Fertilizers are
obtainable, either with or without secondary plant
foods such as Cobalt, Magnesium, Bluestone, Man-
S ganese, Borax, and others as needed.

Livestock Sanitary Board Is


Urged to Support Dr. Knapp


UPON LEARNING that a proposal had been
made to the Florida Livestock Board by
one of its members for the replacing of
Dr. J. V. Knapp as State Veterinarian and
Secretary of the Board, the 15-member
Board of Directors of the Florida Dairy
Industry Association adopted a resolution
praising the work and professional ability
of Dr. Knapp and urging the Governor
and the Livestock Board to continue his
services.
The resolution provided substantially as
follows:
"In our opinion, Dr. J. V. Knapp, Flori-
da State Veterinarian and Secretary of the
Florida Livestock Sanitary Board for the
past 30 years, is held in the highest regard
by practically ioo percent of the Florida
Dairy Industry. His professional ability
as a Veterinarian has been recognized,
both in Florida and nationally, throug-
out his 30 years of service as State Veter-
inarian.
"In our opinion, the loss of Dr. Knapp's
ability and knowledge of Florida Live-
stock Diseases and his valuable experience
gained through thirty years of successful
control of these diseases, many of which
are peculiar only to Florida, would be a
serious loss to the State's rapidly develop-
ing and important Livestock Industry.
"We feel certain that it would be im-
possible to replace this knowledge and ex-
perience and wish to urge the Florida
Livestock Sanitary Board that they make
every effort to insure the continuation of
Dr. Knapp's services in these important
posts.
Dr. Knapp graduated with Dr. of Vet-
erinary Medicine, served in the Bureau of


Animal Industry, transferred to Footand
Mouth Disease Eradication, before becom-
ing State Veterinarian.

Knapp and Pearce Are Elected
By Live Stock Sanitary Board
MR. J. OLIN PEARCE, Cattleman of Okee-
chobee, Florida was elected chairman of
the Florida Live Stock Sanitary Board at
the Boards regular monthly meeting held
in Lake City, March 3rd. Pearce succeeds
John DuPuis, Jr. dairyman and cattle-
man of Miami.
John Turner, livestock owner of Ar-
cadia was elected Vice-Chairman.
Dr. J. V. Knapp was re-elected Secre-
tary of the Board and State Veterinarian,
which position he has held for the past
thirty years. All other staff members and
employees of the Board were re-elected.

Station was awarded a citation scroll by the
Dairy Science Section of the Association
of Southern Agricultural Workers recently.
In presenting the scroll to Dr. Becker
at the 1952 meeting of the section in At-
lanta, Lynn Copeland, Tennessee Exten-
sion Service dairy specialist, called the
Florida scientist "one of the nation's out-
standing dairy research men."
Mr. Copeland described as highly sig-
nificant contributions to Southern dairy-
ing the research done by Dr. Becker on
mineral deficiencies of soils and develop-
ment of mineral supplements, duration of
profitable production by dairy cattle,
rumen microflora and its influence on feed
utilization, and the use of citrus pulp.
Dr. Becker is the eighth man to be
honored by the Dairy Science Section of
the Ass'n of Southern Agricultural Work-
ers. In 1951 he was president of the
American Dairy Science Association.
A graduate of Iowa State College and
holding the doctor of philosophy degree
from the University of Minnesota, Dr.
Becker has been in dairy husbandry work
for three decades.

Permanent Regulations
Recommended for Control
Of Anthrax

ANTHRAX, A new disease to the Florida
Dairy Intdustry, broke out in limited areas
of Southeastern Florida some weeks ago.
Although to date the disease has affected
but a limited number of animals, it has
caused considerable alarni among Dairy
farmers as well as no little concern to the
State's Live Stock Sanitary Board, which
is charged witli the control of animal dis-
sease, and the regular County and State
Health Authorities.
Perm ianenct Reg1lations Re(commended
Affected areas have been quarantinel Ibv
the Live Stock Board and milk from in-
feccted herds has been temporarily kept off
the market.
Recent reports of Dr. J. V. Knappl), State
Veterinarian, indicate that the disease is
well under control. However, at a Febru-
a;ry conference between the I)irectors of
the Florida Dairy Industry Association a;nd
representatives of the State Board of
Health and the Live Stock Sanitary Board,
a general agreement was reached provid-
ing for tile adoption by the appropriate
Health authorities of a set of permanent
rules and regulations dealing with the
treatment of Anthrax and the iuse of the
milk fronm infecCted animals.
The following proposed regulations
have bIeen proposed by a special drafting
committee representing the State Dairy
Association, the State Veterinary Associa-
tion, the State Live Stock Board, and the
State Board of Health. The proposal has
now been approved by all interested
groups except thle State Board of Health
and this approval is expected to be voted
ait their next meeting.
The suggested regulation:
"Il hlerds where anthrax is known to
exist, no milk slhall be sold for seven days
roml tile last known death from anthrax:
or in lieu of the above, the temperatures of
every cow shall be taken prior to eachI milk-
ing by a cjualified licensed veterinarian
approved by the local health department,
and all animals shall be excluded from the
milking herd showing any symptoms of
illness, or showing a temperature of io3
degrees or above, climatic conditions being
considered, such animals to be held in iso-
lation until released by the veterinarian,
the milk from such animals being con-
demned during the isolation period. All
sanitary measures shall be increased as
recommended by the local health delpart-
nient, including the clipping of udders
and flanks or any other measures to pre-
clude the contamination of milk and uten-
sils."

ANDREW JACKSON once said: "One man
with courage makes a majority."
