Last year your committee submitted a report of a survey of the situation as to legislation providing for the labeling conspicuously with the word "poison" all retail packages of caustic alkalis on which survey a campaign for such legislation was to be based.
We beg now to report that such a campaign was planned and carried out in Pennsylvania in support of House Bill No. 395, a copy of which is hereto attached. This bill was introduced by Dr. Benjamin Patterson, was passed by both branches of the legislature, was signed by Governor Pinchot, and has therefore become a law.
Your committee acknowledges with gratitude the utmost courtesy and open-mindedness with which its communications were received and considered by Governor Pinchot and by the members of the legislature. The work of Hon. Benjamin Patterson is deserving of the highest commendation. Thanks for wise counsel and earnest support are due to
