TO IMPROVE MILK SUPPLY
Plan That Has Been Devised by Food
Inspector Widmayer The Dif
ficulty at Present.
Food Inspector Widmayer has a new
plan for the improvement of the milk
supply of this city, and while It has not
yet received the approval of Director of
Public Safety Wormser, it is being
seriously considered by that ofllclal.
The food Inspector believes that he
should be given authority to give cer
tificates of endorsement to those milk
dealers who secure their milk from far
mers and dairymen who observe clean
liness In their dairies and whose milk
Is up to the standard required by low.
"The great dillloulty with our milk
supply," snld the food inspector, "Is
that It Is not clean In many Instances.
As far as the milk Itself Is concerned,
It averages a higher per cent, of butter
fat and total solids thnn the milk sold
In many eastern cities, Including New
"A large percentage of tho farmers
selling milk to local dealers are not
over clean In their dairies. In many
dallies hereabouts the cows are not
curried for months at a time and their
bodies become very dirty. In ninny in
stances the stables In which these cows
nro kept dining the winter are far from
clean. I have no jurisdiction outsldo
tho city limits and can, 'of com so, do
nothing to remedy these conditions,
"I believe (hat If I was empowered
to give certificates endorsing tho inllk
supply of those dealers who purciinso
their milk from clean dairies, that con
