EYERY CHILD SHOULD DRINK
o MILK THREE TIMES DAILY
How Lime and Vitamines in Milk Pro
mote Growth and Bone Develop
ment In Children as Well as in
Rats-Milk for Growing Children
Rather Than Tea or Coffee
"What a lot of milk you use!" ex
claimed Mrs. Olds, watching the milk
man place 4 quart bottles and a pint
on her neighbor's porch step. "What
on earth do you do with it all?"
Mrs. Newson looked soniewhat as
tonished. "Why," she replied, "we
drink most of it, of course. A pint
and a half a day or a glass each meal
f6r each of the three children, the pint
for grandmother, a glass or more each
for Mr. Newsom and myself, and the
rest for breakfast ccrdals, coffee, and
cooking. In fact, I often have to buy
an extra bottle if I want to make a
pudding. Tom, especially since lie has
been on the high-school athletic team,
very often uses a glass or two more
than I allow for him."
Some Children Do Not Like Milk
"Goodness, my children wouldn't
drink milk if I paid them. We only
%take 2 quarts a day, and hardly ever
use all of that. My family's larger
than yours, too," Mrs. Olds reflected.
"Seven of the children at home, now
that Maude is married. I often wish
I could get.Florence and Ida to take
milk and eggs better. They're both
thin and nervous and seem to get tired
out so easily. But even Billy wants
his coffee for breakfast and tea for
"You don't mean to ay you give 4
year-old Billy tea and coffee?"
An illumination- of many points
about her neighbor's family came sud
denly to Mrs. Newsom. She had al
ways supposed the Olds children were
delicate and obviously undernourish
ed, because there were so many of
them to liring up on a smal Isalary.
Apparently, however, there had been
a very grave blunder in the diet of
the whole family, one which could
have been avoided even with their lim
ited income, because milk is one of the
cheapest sources of nourishment ob.
"I wish you might have been with
me yesterday," reniarked Mrs. New
som. "I heard a talk about an exhibit
prepared by some milk specialists in
the Dairy Division of the United
States Department of Agriculture. In
fact, I brought home a picture which
illustrated the lecture. I think it
would interest you." She stepped in
side the house for a moment, and then
invited her neighbor to sit down while

added to their diet had weak bones,

milk and alqo milk proteins, which
are unexcelled for making firm, strong

"The lecturer explained that the ex
hibit was not an experiment, because
the facts had already been proved by
experimental evidence. It was mere
ly a practical illustration.
"Of course," went on Mrs. Newsom,
"we know perfectly well that a baby
will double its weight in six months
on milk alone, and really we should
not be surprised that these half
grown rats have done the same when
they had all the milk they wished.
"The lecturer showed us the stuffed
pelts, which were abeolutely lifelike,
and the mounted skeletons. The'milk
fed rats had firm, well-formed bones,
because they got plenty of lime, where
as the poor little undernourished ones
had such frail skeletons that sonic of
them'had to be exhibited in bottles in
stead of being mounted."
Mrs. Olds loooked very thoughtful.
"I wonder," she said finally, "whether
the small amount of milk the children
have had would partly account for the
easily broken bones in our family ?
Three of the children have had frac
tured arms or legs-and Ida's back
seems so weak."
"It seems probable, though one
can't say positively, of course, Mrs.
Olds. The lecturer yesterday con
firmed my belief that milk is better
for child's nerves systems than tea
and coffee, which, as you know, are
not foods at all, and which contain
elements Uiat affect the nerves. It's
a problem to break a food habit after
a child once forms it, I know; that is
why I have always avoided starting
the tea and coffee libit."
"I believe," said Mrs. Olds, "that
the two youngest children might lis
ten to me if I could tell them the
story of the rats-and perhaps show
them the picture."
"I'll be so glad to lend it to you,"
smiled Mrs. Newsom.

A variety of feeds, with fresh, clean
water, is necessary if chicks are to
grow properly. Perhaps the three
most necessary for rapid growth are
grain feed, green fee]l, and dry mash.
Poultry specialists of the department
say that in addition to the green feed

should be fed nigh t andil mo()rnjing, giv
