At the trial, the owner protested : "Crowding is one of the risks of going to see a popular picture. We can't help it if people have bad manners." But the court granted the wom- an's claim. The court said the management had no business al- lowing more people into the lobby than it could safely control. in another case. a publicity- seeking store created a crowd on purpose by not opening its front door on time. When the door was finally thrown open, the resulting scramble left two custome,s in- jured. For its negligent role in this affair, the management was later held liable. Still. not every crowd-caused in- jury is preventable. Another wom- an was injured in an elevator when too many people tried to squeeze in. Wits this. too, the responsibility of the management? Demanding damages, the woman said it was. But a court disagreed, seeing no one at fault in such an odd, ina- promptu mishap.

This act was initially sponsored, sup- ported and t)assed by ('on- gross. • The American delqgation to the first htternational Opium Convention at The Hague in 1912 had pushed strongly for all governments eDncerned to establish inter- hal controls over narcotics. Rather embarassingly, Amer- ica itself had no such con- trols and the Harrison Act was drafted for this purpose in hopes that it would serve as a model for other countries as well. • Immediately after the Spanish-American War the U.S. War Department took over the chore of governing the Philippine Ishtnds. At the slmle time it inht'rite(] a sys- tem for licensing narcotic ad- dicts and sttpplying them with legal opium. Mission- aries from the U.S. opposed this system on moral grounds and fervently appealed to President Theodore Roose- velt to call for an Inter- national Conference which could propose alternatives. • Some political leaders of the U.S. Government were I PAGE 7 fought over this issue.) The U.S. saw an International Convention as a possible solu- tion to this diplomatic strug- gle between the two coun- tries, fit was also a Treat moral issue to U.S. mission- aries in China.,) On the face of it the Ha,'ri- son bill did not appear to be a prohibition law at all, but in the next column we will examine some unexpected consequences which were a direct result of the passage of this supposedly non-pro- hibitionary act. /he, O/_d !PI , ..i: I ' / : ' P'~")) /, Your Baby is What You Eat, "Says March of Dimes Doctor by Arthur J. Salisbury, M.D. Director of Medical Services The National Foundation- Marr'h nf Dim~,.~ We are a nation of snackers. We often skip meals, but nih- ble constantly during coffee breaks, after school, with cocktails, and before bed. We are always eating, but too many of us aren't eating well. When a woman carries these sloppy eating hahits over into pregnancy, she is risking her own health and that of her unborn baby. At The National Fotmda- tion, we have a special interest in nutrition because of its in- fluence on pregnancy. Under- weight Mr overweight mothers have a much higher incidence of premature and low-birth- weight babies than do healthy mothers. The child grows more rap- idly during these nine months than at any other tim(, in his life, and he is totally depend- ent upon his mother to supply all his nutritional needs. Our concern is that tiles(, babies, who weigh 5~ ~ pounds or less at birth, tend to have many problems with nornlal physical and mental growth. Most of tile babies who die in the first year of life are those who are prenlature or of low weight at birth. Research indicates that the mother's diet deficiencies ctur- ing pregnancy may cause mal- nutrition in the unborn baby. This could lead to abnormal development of the child's brain and to other birth de- feats. Eating right is important for all of us all of the time. But an expectant mother is eating for two. The emphasis, however, must be on what she PROPER WEIGHT GAIN in pregnancy can be an important inflaence in the health of mother and baby.
