Sucha person would prefer to err on Ihe sid ? of caution rallies than commit himself to a venture without fully .consider- ing the consequences. But in this particular proposal there is much to recommend it is favour that does not always apply, If there is any subject upon which the State can reasonably, act the health of its people is one. There is not the risk of severe losses by mis managent, or the question of big financial changes to consider. Thcie is no moral aspect to study as in nationalisation...
