MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Plan Test for Babies at Merkel'; Store Observes Tenth Annual "Better Baby" Event. How is your baby's health? How does he rank compared with other babies his age? The complete examination and competitive ranking given him in The Merkel company's tenth annual "Better Baby" contest provide you with reliable information and answer any questions with regard to your baby's general welfare during the early and most important years of his life. Each day this week, except Saturday, Dr. C. M. Franchere will be at The Merkel company at 12 South Federal avenue from, noon until 2 o'clock to make a complete examination of every baby entered in the contest. To Publish Results. Next week, the results of these examinations will be made public, the three ranking at the top of the group under one year of age will receive trade gift certificates, as will the three best in the group between the ages of one and two. Last year about 250 babies were entered, and this year's contest is expected to be larger than ever. To register a baby either stop at The Merkel company or telephone, and enter the baby's name and age. The only eligibility qualifications are that he be .less than two years old. After your baby is registered you will be informed as to the time he will be examined. To Serve as Guide. The complete analysis of her baby's condition which each mother will receive next week serves as a. guide, suggesting types of clothing and diet which will be most helpful. Sterilized, pro-shrunk Vanta garments are recommended for a child from the time of birth. They are guaranteed not to chafe tender skin and to be free from harmful bacteria. A full line of Vanta clothing is on display in The Merkel company infant department. Medicine Bottle or Box Should Be Kept From Child Keep all bottles of medicines or boxes of pills on high shelves or in cupborads well out of the baby's reach. Do not leave the bottle of iodine on the washstand of table. Keep the'kero- sene can in a closed cupboard or other safe place. A baby who bites his painted crib or other piece of painted furniture may get lead poisoning; he should have an unpainted wooden crib or one painted with paint containing no lead. Never use a baby powder containing stearate of zinc unless ordered by your ' doctor. Never give a baby a can of baby powder as a plaything, even one that is apparently empty. If he puts the top in his mouth he may inhale the powder. If stearate of zroc is inhaled, a serious and often fatal form of pneumonia develops. Gas poisoning can be prevented by not using gas heaters or by being certain that neither the heater nor the piping fixtures leak. ELkVKJN PRESERVE BABY'S FOOD MIEB WOLF AND SONS KEFKIGERATOR EXHIBIT Refrigeration Needed to Keep Baby Foods Perishable Foods Wil * Furnish More Nutrition. With the continual increase in the consumption of perish able foods in American homes refrigeration in these home, has become absolutely essentia to the maintenance of a high nutritive value in perishable foods, according to claims made by Mier Wolf and Sons. Extensive research by medical experts and dieticians show that perishable foods provide the most elements necessary for health and .growth; but, this research has also shown that these same-- perishable foods support the most bacteria and that warm temperatures cause rapid increases in :he numbers of these bacteria, considerably reducing nutritive value. The most favorable condi- :ions for perishable food have jeen found to be at a fairly constant temperature somewhere between 30 and 45 degrees. The various seasons of the year have no effect upon this fact. Research has also brought out that food is not all right just because it looks, smells and tastes all right. Food, apparently perfectly fresh,' has been found to contain such a high bacterial count that jt was dangerous and unfit for human consumption. There is nothing of more importance during the first years of a baby's life than his diet. Milk and fresh foods and vegetables form the greater portion of the food recommended for babies and must be kept in perfect condition by uniform refrigeration. At Mier Wolf and Sons' ipring showing of the 1934 refrigerators, four distinct liues are featured, providing 15 different models and a size for every home and purse. COD LVEH OIL "TODDST" This method of giving children cod liver oil is an enjoyable me for the children. To each easpoonful of concentrated oil, add an ounce or two of orange uice, one large spoonful o£ orn syrup and enough hot wa- er to dissolve the mixture, leat it well, then serve the hildren their "hot toddy."-- arents' Magazine. Youngster Starts Out to See World on His Tricycli CLEVELAND (UP) --Two and a half year old Anthony Skur, Jr., couldn't resist the balmy spring air. So he set out to see the world--on his tricycle. Three hours after he had left home he had pedaled six miles, though his cycle had only on? pedal. A motorist, who found him pumping away on a highway, turned him over to suburban police. Anthony would give only his first name and be quoted only on the fact that he was "hungry."
