PAOE TWBLTH Mf9/fL W, tWf Nutrition Experts Worn; We're Raising a Crop Of B reakfast Delinquents' By GAYNOR MADDOX NEA Food A Markets Editor NEW YORK — (NEA) — We are raising a crop of breakfast delinquents. Most of them are teen-age girls. . . The latest warning signal comes from the Montana Experiment Station of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Dr. Lura M. Odland reports that records of all food eaten for seven consecutive days by 418 Montana college freshmen and 15-year-old high school students in two Montana towns revealed that breakfast habits of girls are considerably worse than of boys. Ten per cent of the college and high school girls had no breakfast at all, or only coffee. The results of this survey parallel those in other itates. Dr. Frederick J. Stare, head of Harvard's department of nutrition. insists that an adequate breakfast must consist of from one-third to one-quarter of all the food eaten during the day. Other leading nutritionists agree with him. Less than that is a health hazard, they warn, and may even retard normal physical development. In the Montana survey, a simple pattern, for a basic breakfast was used: a fruit, preferably a citrus fruit, some type of grain food such is bread or breakfast cereal, plus Aft animal protein, such as milk, tgg or meat. However, only 30 per cent of the Montana girls nnd 40 per cent of the boys ate a breakfast rated adequate by these minimum standards. Dr. Odland points out that the poor showing of the girls Is cause for national concern. Today, many girls marry in their late teens. Unless these youthful brides and prospective mothers are nutritionally fit and know how to provide balanced meals for their families, there is danger ahead. The passion. for slenderness Is • Enemy No. 1 of adequate break- ifasts for teen-age girls, according to nation-wide studies. However, top nutritionists report that girls who do eat one-third to one-quarter of their normal dally! intake at breakfast are less inclined to pile up dreaded extra calories at other meals and in soda fountain vnacks. Because inadequate teen - age breakfasts are a national health problem, many universities', and high schools are now giving courses In practical nutrition. They hope to convince tomorrow's guys and dolls ] that singing for their supper Is not FUTURE DANGER from inadequate breakfast habit* of toda-y'i teens lies In unbalanced breakfasts for tomorrow's families.

State Parks Director Roy Chalker reported the action Tuesday and said he planned to lease two or three more parks. The leases were negotiated for a period of 12 months under recent "private park" legislation which eliminated necessity for advertising for bids. The average lease price was $2,000 per year, Chalker said, based on earnings of each park, ments In the parks. Chalker said the state also has leased to private individuals the rather than on the state's invest- concession rights alone In five other parks. Negroes have not been admitted to the parks In the past. Chalker said leasing the parks to private operators was Intended to maintain segregalon in the future. He said the state Is bunding and opening two new parks for Negroes. The Georgia Legislature recently authorized short-term leasing of the parks as a method of avoiding federal court integration decisions aimed at public parks. However, a federal court in Virginia held recently that Negroes should be admitted to state-owned parks regardless of whether the parks were operated by the state itself or by citizens leasing the parks.
