Your Vitamin Needs
The world has become vitamin
conscious. The alluring advertise
ments for vitamin pills offer a new
incentive to resume the chase af
ter youth and beauty.
Your local grocer can supply
you with your vitamin require
ments in most cases, however, tor
anyone with an understanding of
foods and what constitutes a well
balanced meal knows that plenty
of vitamins for the average person
are included therein. .
There are certain cases where
'an increased amount of vitamins
may be necessary. in which case
these may be prescribed by one’s
physician. But for the average
person there is no advantage to
be gained by an excess amount. The
vitamin content of various foods
has been worked out. It is comput
ed in terms of international units.
Vlflamin A Requirements
The requirement of Vitamin A
for the average adult 4000-6000
units.
(Bregnant or nursing mother—
-5,000-6.000.
Infant or child, 4,000-5,000.
Foods containing largest amts.-
1/3 c. cooked carrots, 4,000.
Heart, 2 02., 6.000.
Liver, 3 02., 9,000.
Butter, 1 tbsp" 800.
Egg, 1, 500.
Spinach, 39 c., cooked, 18,000. ‘
Compare these to.amoun.ts found
in cod liver oil—plain, 1 tsp., 2,000-‘
3.000; halibut liver oil, 1,5, tsp., 6600.|
A day’s rations which would be
low in Vitamin A would be one
such as this:
Breakfast—Toast, coffee, bacon,
jam. '
Lunch—Jelly sandwich, peanut
butter sandwich, banana. ‘
Dinner—Pork sausage, potatoes,
pal-sums, cole slaw, caramel pie.
tea.
By changing these meals to in
eludelpmtofmnhlservingot
carrots, squash or greens, 1 send
wich filling of cheese. egg or liver
and 1 fruit, such as apricots, prunes
or tomato Juice they would be ade
quate.
Vitamin B 'lx—lest- i
Average adult. 250.500 units.
Pregnant or nursing .\ mother,
504,00.
Child. 120-200.
Infant. 75-120.
Best Sources— ‘
Beef, 3 02.. 30-100 units.
Whole grain cereals, 1,9 c., cook
ed, 30-40.
EBB. 1. 50.
Fruits, raw or cooked, as c., 30-
40.
Liver, kidney, 100-150.
Milk, 1,9 pint. 30-40.
Pork, 3 02.. 100.
Potatoes, 1 medium, 50-60.
Prunes, 56 c., cooked, 40-60.
Vegetables, raw, 4 02., or 1,5 c.
cooked, 30-50. '
The vitamin B content of foods
is decreased by cooking in large
amounts or water and discarding
water. The use of soda in cooking
vegetables destroys some of the vit
tmin. Refining cereals removes
nearly all the vitamin B.
A Vitamin B Menu
A simple menu which meets the
requirements for this vitamin is as
follows:
Breakfast—l glass milk, baked
apple, oatmeal.
. . but Complete
Modern small homes offer big-home con
venience!
Modern financing is convenient, too! i
This institution offers new, liberal terms
on the 1938 FHA Plan: down payment, in
some cases, as low as 10 percent of the
value of house and lot . . . the balance paid
monthly, like rent.
Inquiries are invited. Our staff will give
you courteous, prompt attention.
r—K %
Lunch Baked beans, brown
bread, carrot and cabbage salad.
Dinner Meat loaf, potatoes,
scalloped tomatoes, celery and ap
ple salad, chocolate :bread pud
ding. -
It at l
One‘ which Would be lacking
would be:
BreakfasHuice or 1 orange (1,4
c.), 2 slices buttered toast, marma
lade.
Lunch—2 meat sandwiches, su
gar cookies, chocolate bar.
Dinner—Meat pie 'with biscuits,
baked squash, celery, caramel pud
ding.
This menu could be made ade
quate by using whole cereals,
beans, vegetables and dried or
fresh fruits, in place of some of
the white bread, flour and sugar.
The foods sold to supply Vita
min B are Vegex, 1 .tbsp., 75-100:
wheat germ, $5 02., 120 compress
ed yeast, 1 cake, 10-20; wheat bran,
1/3 cup dry, 30-40. , ‘
A person who eats. a. good gen
eral diet has litle need of theseg
they are of value to those with
poor food habits and strong prejuw
dices. .
To go on' with the other vita
mins {would require too much
space, but a similar analysis shows
that they also are present in suit
able quantities in a normal diet.
From the above data, it will be
seen that common, inexpensive
foods, wisely chosen, contain all
the nutritional essentials. -
Vitamins For Mothers
To further relieve the minds of
any homemakers who may have
‘become confused by all the exist
ing vitamin propaganda, here is a
diet which provides the essentials
at the time of life when needs are
greatest—that is, during pregnancy
and the nursing period. The diet is
also ideal for the rapidly growing
adolescent. For other adults, omit.
half the amount of milk and the
cod liver oil. i
3 Milk, 1 quart; meat or £181; 1/3
lb.; liver, heart, 1/5 Ib.; 1 egg or 1
oz. cheese or 11,5 oz. dried legumes;
green and leafy vegetables, 1/3 lb.;

1,4 c., or tomatoes or raw cabbage,
yg c.; whole grain cereal, 1/3 lb. or
whole wheat bread, 1,5 lb;; cod liver
oil, 1 tsp.; butter, 1 02.; other fat,
1 02.: sugar. jam, 2 oz.
Mint Icing
Cream 2 tbsp. butter and 11,5 c.
powdered sugar, add 2 tbsp. milk
and beat _well. Add a few drops
peppermint and tint «pale green
with vagetable coloring. Spread on
top of hardened chocolate icing to
form a-iarge shamrock.

Gentlemen 2
What a season! I’m going craz
ier than a 1910 Model T. The
sun comes out from behind the
clouds a couple of times every
day. And here I am parked in
the garage, half cuckoo in my
desire to start on a spring drive
through the bmsh and timber.
The worst of it Is, I’m not in
shape. I haven’t had a. lick of
work done on my engine or
parts since last summer. I
know the old man has forgotten
all the little details on me that
need fixing.
Spring! I can feel it in my
tires and piston rods. Yet—if the
old man gets that notion, too,
what will I do? I'm in no con
dition for a; sudden jaunt. even
though I am burning with de
sire to tear up the roads.
Mr. Randolph Radiatorleak:
You’ve said something. Noth
ing like being ready for a drive
on that first real day of spring.
Now is the time to prepare for
it. Otherwise that first day thrill
will be lost and your old man
will have to stay home.
We appreciate your sentiment
and we‘d like nothing better
than to fix you up for that early
drive.
Very truly yours,
Randolph Radiatorleak.
