This public educational conference on our food and drug law has a particular significance. For in the first place it deals with the public law of greatest personal importance to our people ; and that is why it is truly called “ the people's law ” In the second place this law is inadequately known, mainly for three reasons. They are: (a) the general public ordinarily has no direct contact with this law; (b) its official reports do not reach that public, as a rule; and (c) other general publicity about it is insufficient. Furthermore, this conference has the additional value of recalling that our people now enjoy the highest food and drug standards of living ever reached anywhere. That situation has an essential relation to the national welfare ; and it was achieved by the great scientific, technological and economic progress of our food and drug industries. But the food and drug law has played an indispensable role in this achievement.
