If the homemakers do a bit of boosting for it, too, the adoption of enrichment for better health should be passed. More proof that enrichment is a wise measure comes from the National Research Council. This councU is convinced that the enrichment of flour and bread represents a major improvement -in the American diet and is a sound, practical and inexpensive method of the achievement of better national nutrition. Durjngr this wartime emergency, all white baker's bread is enriched by.government order. Enrichment «f floor, however is sUll a voluntary measure. The adoption of the state enrichment legislation Is directed toward a continuance of an enrichment program for b o t h bread and flour at the war's end. Adoption of such state laws would be a step toward insuring the continuance of (his health program, When bread and flour are enriched, the nutrients that have been removed in the millh process are replaced in the white flour Here they are--thiamine, nboflavin, niacin and iron. The process of enrichment is a simple and inexpensive one The nutrients are added during the milling procedure and the nianner in -which they are added is simply designed so it may be performed by both small and large mills. Cost of enrichment is 18 to 20 cents annually per person. This cost has been assumed by the miller and the baker.

The goal, according to E. L. Quaife, Iowa State college swine specialist, calls upon Iowa farmers to farrow 2,075,000 sows next spring--87,000 more than were farrowed this last spring.
