Nutrition experts consider the mineral content of foods as important as the vitamin content. The minerals needed in the largest quantities are calcium and phosphorus. In planning the Victory Garden the principal question to be considered is whether there are particular crops to be grown for their mineral content, in addition to those which are vitamin-rich. The answer is no. The vegetables which contribute vitamins to the diet, also contain minerals. Take for example calcium, which is required in the largest quantity and is most likely to be lacking in poorly planned diets. It is also the mineral expected to be scarcest under food rationing. Children need more calcium than adults. While an adult requires .8 grams each day, adolescents require 1.4 grams and infants 2 grams. It builds strong bones and teeth, and is important in many bodily functions. Its principal source is milk and cheese; but after these come the green, leafy vegetables, the same that are richest in Vitamins A and C. Here is a list of vegetables containing calcium, given in the order of their value, the richest first: Green outer leaves of cabbage, turnip, greens, mustard greens, collards, kale, watercress, broccoli, endive, Swiss chard, beet greens dandelion greens, celery, kohlrabi; spinach, okra, leaf lettuce, pars nips, leeks, turnips, snap beans cabbage heads, carrots and onions The calcium content of vegcta bles will vary according to the pres ence of calcium in the soil. Soils most likely, to be deficient arc tb black soils, newly plowed or spad ed, from which the lime may hav been washed out over a period o many years. Sandy soils and thosi in wooded sections also are likely to need lime. Lime is easily added, preferabl; in the form of fine limestone, ap plied before the garden is spadec and thoroughly mixed with the soi 1 Lirne has great value in stirnula' ing the growth of plants, also Kale Is One of the Best Green Leafy Foods , Though not a fertilizer, it makes plant food present in the soil more available to the plants. Phosphorus is contributed by the lollowing garden vegetables, given in the.order of their value: Fresh lima,beans, green peas, parsnips, collards, loose cabbage leaves, and oroccoli. It is also found in many other foods which will be reasonably abundant under rationing, so it is not necessary to grow any vegetables especially to provide it. The green, leafy foods which are so valuable for their vitamins and calcium are also good contributors of iron. Many vegetables not listed as rich in calcium, contain somo of this as well as other minerals. One does not expect to get all his quota of any vitamin or mineral from any one dish, as a rule. But in planning the menu, there should be a good representation of the foods which contain these vital elements; and this year you cannot count on having enough of them, unless you plan to grow many in your Victory Garden. Convicts Made Whiskey in Georgia Prison Reidsville, Ga., April 20 (IP)— How three whiskey stills were found in Georgia's state penitentiary prior to the mass escape of 25 of the institution's toughct convicts was disclosed today by Warden H. R. DuValt. DuVall, asked about reports that prisoners had been making whiskey, said one still of 50-gallon capacity was found in the prison canning plant, in the main building, and that two smaller ones had been found. The discoveries were made March 16, just after he took over as warden, DuVall said. One of the smaller liquor plants was found in a tunnel leading from the boiler room to the main i building. I The stills were promptly destroyed, along with any whiskey found with them. This disclosure came after DuVall told how convicts planned veeks in advance for last Friday's mass break, working hour after our to cut through cspically hardened bars with steel wire, then put hem back in place with soap. Con- lession by two recaptured pri- oners aided in the revelation. Meanwhile, three investigations were being made into affairs of the great white marble institution, mown as "Georgia's escape-proof Denitentiary" and the "Piney Woods Alcatraz" — by the Tattnall county grand jury, the 'state prison commission and a committee of three state legislators. Duvall said two recaptured convicts, Joe Mclntosh and Los Mc- Ncw, told him and other prison officials an amazing story of how case-hardened cell bars were sawed with wire and a compound used to grind automobile valves. As the warden and other authorities watched, Mclntosh and McNew walked along the cell block on the fourth floor of the prison and flicked away bar after bar which appeared to be solid. Duvall said the two men told him that most of the work had been done before he became warden. Eleven of the 25 convicts who fled the prison remained at large today. Among them were Leland Harvev and Forrest Turner, notorious Georgia jail breakers, and ringleaders of Friday's break. All 14 of the recaptured prisoners are in solitary confinement, Warden Duvall said. Urges Farmers to Test All Seed Peanuts Hempsteud County peunuv growers were urged yesterday by Oliver L. Adams, county agent, to test nil peanuts to be used for planting purposes. This warning was issued after receiving a report from the State Plant Board that germination strength of peanuts available for planting in the state ranged as low as 21) per cent in sonic instances. Pointing out that the use of good seed is necessary to obtain good stands. Agent Adams said that the use of untested seed may result in poor stands and make replanting necessary. The- State Plant Hoard reports show that preliminary test conducted on peanuts available for planting range from as low as 20 per cent to more Hum 08 per cent. Pen nuts having a germination of 90 per cent or more can be safely planted at the normal rate, but peanuts having a lower germination percentage should be planter at a higher rate per acre to offset the inferior quality of seed. However, only by testing each lot o peanuts to be planted can the far mer know what quality seed he is using and what rate per acre shoulc be used if a good stand is to be obtained. In this regard, he said that peanut seed can be tested within a fe\\ days at home with little trouble and at little or no expense. Directions for testing germination of pea nuts have been prepared and are now available at the County Extension Office. Additional information on the production of peanuts can be found in Extension Leaflet No. 24. "Peanut Production in Arkansas." also available at the County Extension Office in the court house.
