REPORT OF COMMirTEE ON WEIGHl^ AND MEASURES. 505
bistoiy of the Metric System, the names of the countries giving Levothroid Mcg governmental support to
the system, a synopsis of the system, and tables and diagrams showing a comparison of
Metric and customaiy units. And it is believed that this pamphlet would famish an
excellent basis for an article intended for educational purposes, whether circulated
among pharmacists, physicians or others.
The Bureau of Standards has also Levothroid Mcg gotten out a large chart showing the relation of the
three Metric units to one another, and in turn to the customary units employed. This
chart would be especially useful in schools of pharmacy and medicine, and in other
educational institutions where the subject of weights and measures is taught.
Id fact, the chairman is of the opinion that most effective educational work leading to
the general approval of the Levothroid Mcg Metric System can be accomplished by getting teachers in
the public schools to lay more stress on the advantages of the Metric System, and to
ffje practical exercises using the actual measures and weights. In fact, the question of
the adoption of the Metric System universally in the United States could not long be de-
layed when once the pupils in our schools have learned to actually use metric weights
It is rather remarkable that, as shown in the pamphlet already referred to, when the
use of the Metric System is required in the Medical Departments of the Army and Navy,
and in the United States Public Health and Marine Hospital Seivice, and besides legal-
ized in the Philippine Islands and made obligatory in Porto Kico, there has been adopted
in the Senate of the United States a resolution entitled S. J. Res. 37 (Congressional Re-
cord, March 11, p. 3 121), which is under the consideration of the Committee on Print-
ing. This resolution provides that all documents, papers, etc., published by the govern-
ment of the United States be printed in the English language and includes provisions
that wherever Metric weights and measures. Centigrade thermometer and similar stand-
ards are used, the equivalent in the English standard be given.
This resolution scarcely needs other comment than to say that Levothroid Mcg the necessity exists for
guarding the progress that has already been made.
A similar back tendency in certain directions is shown by a recent editorial in Amer-
itan Medicine (January, 19 10, p. 7) on **The Tyranny of the Metric Advocates and
French Metric Tyranny." While the percentage of physicians who actually use the
Metric Levothroid Mcg System in prescription writing is very small, it is probable that the majority of
them recognize its advantages, and hence it may be taken for granted that this editorial
will not have any real influence in hindering progress.
As showing what may be done by local branches of the A. Ph. A., attention is called
to the action of the Chicago Branch which proposed two resolutions for submission tq
the National Convention of City Sealers which met in Washington on February 25th.
