TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 20 1936 SAYS DIET CAN University Doctor Declares Many Children Deficient in Vitamin A. IOWA CITY, W)--A corrected -'diet to eliminate a deficiency in vi. tamin A, would probably prevent . many of .the common colds,.among . school children, according to Dr. Philip C. Jeans of the University of Iowa Children's hospital. Tests made under Dr. Jeans' direction in the hospital laboratory revealed that more than 50 per per cent of Iowa school children have a vitamin A deficiency. It is this vitamin which provides resistance to colds and all respiratory infections. The study revealed that farm children are less susceptible to colds and other infections of the respiratory tract, probably because of larger amounts of dairy products in their diet. Deficiency Is Varied. Only 26 per cent of farm children tested showed a vitamin A deficiency. The percentage ranged to S3 per cent for village children, and to 79 for those of the lower economic levels in cities. The tests were made with a photometer, a simple 'electric apparatus, which registers the eyesight in darkness. The testing technique was devised here when physicians learned that "night blindness," is the result of vitamin A deficiency. The photometer consists of an electric light bulb at the end of a metal tube, an iris diaphrem for regulating the amount of light to be admitted through' the tube, and a metal disk with holes punched in it. In Lighted Room. The photometer was used to measure eyesight after the subjects of the experiment had been seated for five minutes in a brightly lighted room. Lights in the room were extinguished after the five minute period, and the children looked into the photometer and . were told to count the light spots on the metal disk. The amount of light required at the opposite end to permit each subject to see the light spots was recorded. Dr. Jeans explained that night blindness is related to vitamin A deficiency because of a substance called "visual purple" in the retina of the eyes. This substance aids in seeing in the dark, but degenerates almost instantly when light strikes it. It reforms in darkness only if a sufficient amount of vitamin A is present. Finance Plan Offered for Building House on Golf Club Near Osage OSAGE--At a meeting Wednesday evening of the board of directors of Sunny Brae golf course, two agreements were drawn up in regard to building a. club house and these are to be submitted to members of the club to finance the project.
