MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THlfiSE Pfaff Uses Vitamin D in Product Sunshine Put in Bread After Discovery at Columbia. Sunshine in bread--that is one of the marvels of present day science. It was made possible through the discovery of Prof. Theodore P. Zucker, working in the laboratories of Columbia university, after his discovery of how to extract vitamin D of cod liver oil ill an odorless, "Lasteless form and how to concentrate this vitamin, making- it possible to incorporate the cod liver oil vitamin D in foods. Bread containing this vitamin D is distributed exclusively in Mason City and surrounding territory by the Pfaff baking company. This vitamin helps nature in building strong bones and strong teeth. When nature created vitamins, those known as A, B, C. E and G were distributed generously in foods wbich make up a normal diet. But vitamin D, despite its importance, is found only in sunlight, cod liver oil and a trace in egg yolk, whole milk, cream and butter. In this part of the country, the ultra violet rays of the sun are not sufficiently intense most of the year to provide an adequate source. Moreover, most people in the cities have limited opportunity for exposure to the sunlight. For this reason, the needed vitamin has been incorporated in bread. PULSE OF THE FARM workers in Mason City in the last few months and he says that most of them are enthusiastically in favor of some such plan in order that they may feel secure in their living. They want no dole. However, Mr. Winegar thinks three acres is too small a plot of ground. He suggests ten acres each and 100 lots in the colony and he believes that a family could get a living from 10 acres; and if any of the family could earn wages at some other employment, so much the better. If the government would loan ?3,000 on the land to be expended in a house and a small barn on each plot and give a long time lease, he feels that the "farm" could be paid for. Ground Soybeans Adds to Income From Dairy Cow ACKLEY, March 7. (UP) -Addition of ground soybeans to the dairy ration increased income above feed cost by $27.78 for a dairy farmer in the Hardin-Franklin Cow Testing association, according to Emerson Hillman, tester."

The soybean for 12 cows cost $3.75, leaving a net gain of $27.78 for the month. PRIZE WINNER Born on a. farm in Grimily county, George Knaup, Jr., has lived in Hancock county 17 years.

Whether we know it or not ·we are drifting rapidly into socialistic forms of government, j This is neither to condemn nor' commend them; but anyone looking backward for 50 or more years, cannot fail to recognize the trend. The question is what is best to do with present conditions. It is stated that Mason City has paid out in relief work alone, in the last three years, $466,000 and at the present time is spending $14,000 a week on a CWA program, on projects which are deemed essential but not absolutely necessarv. CONDITION NATION-WIDE This condition is nation-wide and the customary and usual methods of relief are badly strained. It docs not immediately concern country people because they have enough to eat and a place to stay; but it does concern the towns and cities where an ever-increasing number of wage earners are suffering from periodic unemployment. One of the remedies which is being considered seriously and is being: experimented with by the national government, is known as "Subsistance Farming." As contemplated by the government, these "farms" are only to contribute to the sub- sistance of those who occupy them but have to a more or less extent, some other means of support. The experiment is being tried out among the coal miners of West Virginia, where the mines are idle. Mrs. Roosevelt is personally interested in this venture. There are · also other places--Dayton, Ohio, near the Ford plant in Michigan, one in Indiana and one in Missouri. Something like it has been started at Austin, Minn., and Cedar Rapids is also interested. PROPOSES THREE ACRES The government project proposes to use three acres to a family and to loan the family $2,000 to get a home on the plot and tc give a long time lease so that the member may eventually own the home and so feel secure in his old age. Those who cultivated garden patches in the community gardens last year will realize how good a living could be had from three acres, if that also implies the keeping of a cow, two or three pigs and some fowl. Some of these people are wishing that some such plan could be offered here. It will be noted that, under the government plan these "farms" are not expected to sell anything but only to insure their occupants a good living. WINEGAR HAS PLAN F. R.
