—In the news item entitled "Annual Report of Food and Drug Administration" (The Journal, December 3, p. 1962) the word "seized" in the second line should have been "collected." The Department of Agriculture collected 38,815 samples of foods and drugs during the year, but the total number of prosecutions and seizures instituted was only 2,567. In the entire twenty-six years of the history of the Food and Drugs Act there have been instituted only about 19,400 legal actions involving both seizures and prosecutions.
