A 6 Cold Look 9 at Vitamin C ByGaynorMaddox (NBA Writer) I have a severe cold. The number of suggestions I get to cure or ease the suffering is astounding. Eat less. Eat more. Don't eat hardly anything. But by far the greatest number talked about vitamin C and my cold. So I reviewed many articles on vitamin C and colds, shook my head in doubt, and went right on with my regular morning six ounces of orange juice. Result? I feel no better, no worse. That is the bottom line. What I need is scientific judgment. Everyone has his own answer to the question: is vitamin C really good for colds? You'll get millions of answers from concerned laymen. You'll get many answers, too, from scientists. But they will be based on careful research, testing and other scientific checks. The basic difference will be that the scientific based answers will not be final. Those emotionally conceived will be 100 per cent absolutely final. So don't rely on them. Go along with the scientists. The medical board of "Consumer Reports," under the pressure of cold-worried readers, made a careful review of the subject. It found that the University of Toronto's School of Hygiene, under Dr. Terence W. Anderson and colleagues, had conducted three large-scale studies. These were made under strictest scientific procedures and produced evidence unlike that of those who advocated great and uncontrolled doses of vitamin C. Unfortunately the latter have influenced many susceptible people. "Consumer Reports" thus Timw Herald, Cdrmll, la.

Hwy, 30 & 71 stated: "based on the Toronto studies, the results suggested that the large dally doses of vitamin C might be largely superfluous for people with colds. "Again, that vitamin C had no significant effect in preventing colds or reducing days of illness." The medical board concluded, on the basis of the highly reliable Toronto research studies, that super large regular doses of vitamin C advocated by many appear to be unnecessary. The most commonly noted effect of large doses is diarrhea. In some cases, kidney problems. Pending further reliable studies (the conclusions of the Toronto study have not yet been confirmed), if you feel that the slight effect of vitamin C on your cold is desirable, why not include in your regular diet some foods that are high in vitamin C. If, on the other hand, you insist on taking vitamin C for your cold, look for the cheapest available brand of U.S.P. ascorbic tablets or powder. Vitamin C is vitamin C whether it is "natural," "organic" or "synthetic." They all cost money. Why not, as I am doing, rely on your average vitamin C intake and save. More Veterinarians In Iowa Than Any State 4-H News MAPLE RIVER - The Maple River Top-Notchers 4-H Club met in the church hall with Janice Baumhover as hostess. She also led the pledges. Roll call was answered by "My favorite color and where I would like to use it." Carla Bellinghausen and Julie Gross gave demonstrations, and the meeting was adjourned by Carla. By William Rooks (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES — Iowa has more veterinarians in general practice than any other state — there is no shortage as in many states — and the prospects are for more, said Dr. John Herrick, extension veterinarian at Iowa State University (ISU). Herrick said approximately 1,100 veterinarians are in active practice in Iowa and 713 of those in general practice. Both figures represent increases since 1974. Dr. E.A. Butler, state veterinarian and chief of the Division of Animal Industry, said 1,050 persons were actively practicing veterinarians in 1974 and 601 of those were in general practice — on large and small animals. There are 28 colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States, including the recent addition of schools in Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, North Carolina and Louisiana. Many states without veterinary programs have a shortage of qualified veterinarians. More than 60 per cent of the ISU graduates begin practice in Iowa, said Herrick, and this trend applies to most other states as well. A 1974 Survey of Veterinarians compiled by the Records and Statistics Division of the Iowa Department of Health found that 246 of 847 questionnaire respondents were specializing as follows: 56 on small animals only. 36 on all species of large animals, 27 in mixed practice, three on horses only and 59 as regulatory veterinarians. Sixty-five others did not state their specialties. Comparable recent statistics were provided by Herrick, who said the number of veterinarians has "increased some but actually has stayed very constant in the last decade." In January there were more than 1,100 veterinarians in the state, 66 of whom were retired. In addition to the 713 in general practice, 71 were at the National Animal Disease Center in Ames, 100 at ISU, three at the University of Iowa, two at the Iowa Department of Health and five were city sanitarians. There also are 20 state and nine federal regulatory vets, 25 federal meat inspectors and 48 companion pet (small animal) veterinarians. ISU's College of Veterinary Medicine will expand its enrollment next fall from 100 to 120 students, and Herrick said this could create a situation in which the state has more veterinarians than needed. There are 400-500 eligible applicants each year vying for entrance to ISU's six-year program — two years pre-professional and four years professional. ISU will give preference to applications from Iowa residents — 90 of the 120 openings for next fall. Twenty-three openings are for students from "contracting" states which pay ISU $6,500 per student per year for a contracted number — Nebraska 10, South Dakota 6. North Dakota 4, and Oregon 3. The remaining seven openings are used for the prospective students from all other states. Herrick said that although there may be more money involved in a small animal practice, the majority of his students prefer the large animal practice because they work outdoors and face a greater challenge. Fred Wertman, executive secretary of the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association, said the use of veterinary clinics has been successful. Although house calls are still made occasionally, veterinarians handle many more cases because the animals are brought to them instead of the vet having to spend much of his time on the road.
