Dr. Sidney Farber '27 yesterday lashed out against the Hearst-sponsored Anti-Vivisection campaign, terming the entire issue "journalistic propaganda." Farber, Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Medical School, stated that "newspapers have deliberately misrepresented the case for the Nolen-Miles bill."
"There is no basis for the controversy" continued Farber, "as the bill asks for no pets, but only five percent of the 35000 stray dogs killed legally in Massachusetts every year." Without the bill he said that tht Medical School might be forced to suspend several important projects and perhaps even close its doors.
Easy on the Dogs
"Operations on dogs are painless," explained one of the staff at the surgical research labs. "We always use a general anesthesia, and the animal feels no discomfort at all."
