IOWA CITY, UP) _ A "dextrose diet" provides the quickest way to round out the scrawny body of an undernourished child, an experiment at the University of Iowa children's hospital has disclosed. Dextrose, a form of sugar, is found in ripe fruits and is obtained in pure form through the procession of corn--hence it commonly is known as corn sugar. All things being equa], said Dr. Philip A. Jeans, head of the hospital pediatrics department, the experiment shows children will gain weight faster on a "dextrose diet" than they will on a diet rich in cream and butter. Can Be Absorbed. The reason is simple, Dr. Jeans said. Dextrose can be absorbed by the body with a minimum of digestive processing. Fats like cream and butter require considerable digestive action and carry a high percentage of waste. A group of children from 10 to 20 per cent underweight formed the subject matter of the experiment, carried on by diet experts under Dr. Jeans' direction. A third of the children were fed the "normal" hospital diet. Another third were fed a "fat" diet, rich in cream and butter. The third ate the ' ; dextrose" diet, rich in proteins, minerals and vitamines, but the carbohydrates, or fatg, were provided by dextrose, supplied in ripe fruits and pure com sugar used as sweetening in foods and drinks. Gain on All Three. The children gained weight on all three diets, but the dextrose diet group gamed, on the average, .45 of a pound a day; the fat diet group, .31 of a pound and tfi e normal diet group, .19 of a pound. The experiment shows it took from 250 to 500 more calories a day to add a pound of weight to children on the fat diet than it did for children on the dextrose diet.

But what yardstick have you for power so smooth, so quiet, so effortless that only the song of the wind in your earS tells you how swiftly you are flying? How can you measure steadiness, and that down-to-earth sort of road- hugging travel that makes you feel so much more secure in a Buick, no matter what your pace? What gauge have you for pride of ownership, or your wife's delight in a car that is more manageable than her knitting needles? The Buick Special is what the trade calls "a big package." It offers much in measurable things, more than holds its own in side-by-side comparison. But it has an extra edge in the eloquent fact that it's a Buick--and we'd like to show you how that makes it bigger than its inches. ,..

CAPTAIN INSISTS ON SEEING WAR Protests First Order to Leave Front But Not Second One. EDITOR'S NOTE: This is one of a scries of "typewriter snapshots of the Ethiopian war" by Edward J. Neil, Associated Press correspondent with the northern Italian army.) By EDWABD J. NEIL. Associated Press Foreign Staff. · AMBA ARADAM, Ethiopia, (By airmail and boat to New York), UP) --Into the mess tent on a howling rain swept night in the front lines swept bald, stocky, vehement Captain Fatrizl of the twenty-third of March blackshirts, heading in the general direction of the high commander of the Italian armies. That day the captain had been ordered back from the front lines, with the start of the push only hours away. His knowledge of English would make him more valuable somewhere else, they said. Not so the captain. "I've been out here a couple of months," he wailed, "waiting for this fight, and now I can't have some. Where's the high command?" Man of Importance. Captain Patrizi is a man of importance. His family is one of the finest in Italy. He talked loud and long, and hard. He disappeared into the night, a big grin on his face. Seven nights later, and it was still raining, the wind still howling, and into he tent again came Captain Patrizi, ut what a change in the man. His face was thin and white, drawn with pain. He walked unevenly. His left arm was in a great bundle of bandages, splints, plaster cast, stuck out almost straight from his shoulder, bent at the elbow in front of him. He'd had his fighting all right. Patrizi got his as the blackshirts were going up the side of monstrous, 10,000 foot Aradam. He was stretched out on the slope, a lieutenant slightly in front, another beside him, all three with rifles taken from wounded and dead; firing furiously at the Ethiopians only a few hundred feet above them in plain view. Like Shooting Pheasants. "Like shooting pheasants," said Patrizi. "They were pouring it into us the same way. The lieutenant in front gurgled, sighed, rolled over on his back, a bullet through the lungs. "The lieutenant beside me jumped up, twisted, camp down again. The bullet that went clean through his shoulder h i t . a rock, burst into pieces, filled my arm. It was a hell of a job getting the three of ·us out of there." Now Captain Patrizi has a new order to leave the front--hospital ship lor Italy.. For some reason he hasn't questioned this one at all. He even smiled about it.
