Rural School Children Don't Drink Enough Milk University Dietician, in Douglas County Nutrition Campaign, Says Country Pupils Fail to Appreciate Food Value of Dairy Product. Children of the rural sthuoU of Nebraska da not drink enough milk. This abounding revelation was made yesterday by Mi 1 lorence Atwood of the cimion service of the I'nivrt.iiy of Nebraska, who i. cundneiitig a nutrition campaign in Douglas county. In some of the rural schools the pfrreuuge of pupils who do not drink milk reaches as high $0 and 75 per cent, Mis Atwood declared. In Omaha city school children who are undernourished are fed two glasses of milk each day. Some such arrangemeut may be adopted for the rural schoids. Don't Appreciate Value, Miss Atwood attributes the lack of milk on the diets of rural youngtrrs to the fact that there is so much milk on the farm they do not appreciate its worth to their growth and nour ishment. "We visit the schools and get in touch with the children first." she said. "We geuerally weigh and meas ure hrm and urge them to drink more milk. 1 hen we meet with the county agents and parent and ad vacate closer supervision of diet. "Another strange thing is that with all the fresh frmt and vegetable available on the farm, the rural ehil dien fail to get their proper amount of vitellines, clinging rather to meats and starchy vegetables. Covers IS Counties. Mi Atwood ha been in the ex tension tcrvice of the university for three years and iu that time has cov ered more than 15 counties. From here she goes to Clay county next week.. Miss Louise Murphy, health spe cialist of the university extension service, will he in Douglas county next month, she said, and Dr. Caro line Hedger of Chicago, who is in great demand throughout the country in this work, probably will come to Nebraska next fall. Hail Agents Organize Local passenger agents of rail roads running in to Omaha and Council Muffs met at 6:30 last night at Hotel l-'ontenelle to form a pas senger agents' association.'
