Delivery Fleet of Pfaff Company in both plants but equipment id materials are purchased in- ependently in the towns in which the bakeries are located. These trucks travel more than 900 miles a day, servicing 84 towns and 450 merchants with Vitamin D bread, a product of the Pfaff Baking company. PfaffBaking Company Is Given Right Vitamin D Bread Invented as Child's Bone Builder. When the Pfaff Baking company of Mason City was li- :ensed under the patents owned and controlled by Columbi.i university for the exclusive right to bake and sell Vitamin D bread in this territory it had :o its cvedit another service to its role in the development of mman welfare that increased its sales tremendously. The importance of proper diet throughout the whole span of life, but particularly during childhood, is a study to which eminent scientists the world over are devoting their lives. Professor Theodore F. Zucker, working in the laboratories of Columbia university, discovered how to extract the Vitamin D of cod liver oil in odorless, tasteless form and how to concentrate this vitamin, making it possible to incorporate the cod liver oil vitamin D in bread. "D" Lacking in Food. Every loaf of Vitamin D bread contains the Vitamin D equivalent to two teaspoonsful of standard cod liver oil. This element, which is almost entirely lacking in every-day diet, helps nature build strong bones, sound teeth, firm jaws and straight limbs. With the introduction of vitamin D bread in Iowa, the Mason City bakery being one of the first to produce it on Oct. 15, an increase of seven men was made on the local payroll. More than 900 miles a day are being driven by employes of the distribution department of the bakery in servicing St towns and 450 merchants. Ten truck routes are maintained and 11 salesmen, the entire department being under the management of Henry Hanson, route supervisor and sales manager. Firm Is 10 Years Old. W. L. Eaton, local manager of the bakery, has been in Mason City hardly a year but he sees an opportunity for trade expansion in the territory. The local concern is itself only 10 years old, the Pfaff brothers of Fort Dodge buying out the Wilson Kelly bakery in 192-1 after organizing the first company at Fort Dodge in 1920. Modern machinery and equipment has been added to the bakery and the payroll has increased to 35 persons. The concern is an independent bakery in no way connected with a chain, according to Manager Eaton. The Pfaff brothers, O. C. and L.

It was therefore discov- red that the covering of cer- als contained an important ood substance. Loss of appe- ite is-also observed if there is a lack of vitamin B in the diet fitamin B is very widely dis- itributed in foods and it is very unlikely that an average Amer-. can diet would show a deficien- y in it It is present in whole grain cereals, egg yolk, milk, joiroal organs and nearly all Â·egetables and fruits. Vitamin C and Its Function. The function of vitamin C or anti-scorbutic vitamin is to jrevent scurvy, a disease characterized by spongy and bleed- ng gums, hemorrhages into the muscles and joints and pains and swelling of the joints. For- .unately, due to the almost universal use of the citrus fruits n the diet, scurvy is now an almost unheard of disease in America. Among the foods richest in this vitamin, are oranges, tomatoes, lemons, grapefruit, apples, raspberries, and the green leafy vegetables. Vitamin D Forms Bones. Vitamin D, otherwise known as the anti-rachitic vitamin, has to do with the regulation of the bone-forming elements of the body (calcium and phosphorus). Lack of this vitamin causes rickets, a disease of childhood with many bone manifestations among which may be mentioned bulging forehead, delayed closing of the fontaneles, deformities of Â±e chest, protruding abdomen and bowed legs. Cod liver oil is a very rich source for vitamin D. It is also present in egg yolk, salmon, butter, milk and aalibut liver oil. The ultra violet part of the sun's rays supply tills vitamin, as do the mercury quartz and carbon ace lamps. Various foods are enriched in their vitamin D con- Lent by being irradiated with ultra violet rays. Viosterol, a product discovered a few years ago, is irradiated ergosterol. The prevention and cure of rickets depends upon an adequate amount of vitamin D in the diet and a sufficient amount of sunshine. It must be remembered, however, that in this climate the ultra violet part of the sun-s rays is markedly diminished during the winter months and also that the rays are ineffectual if permitted to come through window glass. Vitamin E Prevents Sterility. Vitamin E is known as the anti-sterility vitamin and is supposed to produce sterilization in animals. It is present in whole cereals, fresh meat, egg yolk and lettuce. It is recognized that vitamin B possesses two active principles, one the anti-neurotic described above and the other called anti-pellagric. To avoid confusion, this element is designated as vitamin G. It is thought that this food substance- plays a part in the prevention and cure of pellagra, a disease with skin and spinal manifestations. Vitamin G is present in meats, fish, leafy vegetables, milk, eggs and yeast. General Rules. From our present knowledge of vitamins, the following rules should be remembered. 1. Milk and vegetables should be fresh. 2. Food should be cooked rapidly at a high temperature if compatible with digestibility. 3. Infants fed On boiled or dry milk must have a fresh fruit juice. 4. Nursing mothers must have a diet rich in the various vitamins. 5. Foods retain their vitamin content to a greater extent when cooked in a double boiler. Mickey Mouse Honored.
