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
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 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.
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
