And they demonstrated clearly this point Tuesday at noon when they honored him at a surprise birthday party held in the Center cafeteria. "Bill", a native of Camp Hill, Pa., (a surburb of Harrisburg), was 53 years old Tuesday and the boys at the Center, on their own initiative and volition, con. tributed to a gift fund for "Bill", a lovely silver bowl was purchas- ed, a birthday cake was made and one of the enrollees did a fine job of decorating it. All this they did without any help, or direction from the Center personnel. The project was devised and directed by four boys - Ronald Williams, John Crowley, Maurice Ross and Albert Manson - and when they had everything ready and all the boys were in the Center cafeteria Bill was called in and presented the bowl and the boys sang "Happy Birthday" to him. Bill is no newcomer at making people happy and keeping their appetites appeased since he had been for years head Chef in the cafeteria at the Pennsylvania State Capitol building in Harris. burg.

Editor, Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate Charles Town, West Virginia Dear Mr. Brown: Most people believe the use of animals in experimental research is both necessary and justified in order to nnprove medical techni- ques, test the many new drugs and chemicals and add to medical knowledge. To this end. nearly two million dogs, a half-million cats, and countless other animals were used in research laborator- ies in this country last year. These animals, the unwilling subjects of vital medical research are not given the good care and consideration which they deserve. ara only a few of the eo - ion to prewnt hoft of anlmal . ditions which make our research to widen the use of anesthesia, to laboratories in hospitals, univer- give post-operative care. to pro- slues and other institutions a[vide comfortable cages, and disgrace to American medicine. ] limit the amount of fear, pain and The pharmaceutical industry is stress which an experimental ant equally guilty.

I To quote an editorial from the New York Times, "Antivivisection is not at issue, but decent, re- for such neglect and cruelty'in a country as rich as ours. In Eng. land, for the past ninety years, the practice of medicine has flourished under a law which con trols animals research. Among other things, it requires licensing of each scientist who has the responsibility of working with living animals, forbids experi- ments that are equivalent to tor- ture, and provides for govern- ment inspection of each labora- tory. To add to the unfortunate con- ditions outlined above, pet dogs and cats are now being stolen by unscrupulous dealers to supply the ever-increasing demand for research subjects.
