Butterfat More Important Than Ever In Vitamin Comprehensive research studies have just disclosed that butterfat is a much more important source of vitamin A than formerly be lieved. Based on assays in experi ment stations throughout the United States, the Department of Agriculture states that the vitamin A value of butter varies from 11, 000 units of vitamin A per pound in the winter, to 18,000 unit3 in the summer, with an average of over 15,000 units for all butter made. This is more than 50 per cent more vitamin A from butter fat than has often been credited to it, according to the National Dairy Council. The same survey shows that the average quart of milk contains 1,530 units of vitamin A. It also shows that the average person gets about 2,340 of the estimated daily requirement of 5,000 vitamin A units from the amount of milk and its products now consumed. Vitamin A is “essential for life and health in people of all ages,” according to the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Of even greater importance are findings showing that by better dairy cattle feeding methods, the vitamin A content of milk can be increased far beyond the present averages. Cows transform the car otene in feed into vitamin A. By carefully preserving hay and sil age it is possible to produce mijk fat with a vitamin A content nearly double the present average. Identification Number Needed For New Business Many returning veterans are go ing into business for themselves for the first time. Some are men who have never been an employer of labor before. These individuals are reminded that any new em ployer should file an application with the Social Security Board for an identification number for the business. This is necessary even though only one person is on the payroll, and perhaps works only part time. Each employer is required to keep a record of the worker’s social security account number for use when it comes time to make out the social se curity tax return to the collector of internal revenue. Interested individuals, who live outside of Rocky Mount, should watch the newspapers of their cities for the announcement of when a representative of that of fice will visit their community. New employers may secure identi fication numbers either by calling at the Social Security Board of fice which is located at Room 208 in the Post Office Building or by writing this office for application forms SS-4.
