VITAMIN D IN EGG
VARIES WITH DIET
Cod-Liver Oil Found to Give
Prepared by the Unltad States Department
of AKrlculture,—WNU Service.
There are relatively few potent nat-
ural sources of vitamin D known. Egg
yolk Is one of the most valuable of
these, but all egg yolks are not equal-
ly rich. The diet of the hen and the
amount of sunlight she has received
•during the egg-laying period make
considerable difference In the vitamin
D content of the egg yolk. Vitamin
D. often referred to as the antirachitic
vitamin, promotes the assimilation of
calcium and phosphorus, and thus aids
the development of bones and teeth.
Practical ponltrymen and nutrition-
ists have been interested In attempts
to enrich the egg yoHc In vitamin D
either by feeding the hen substances
rich in this vitamin or by Increasing
the amount of ultraviolet light she re-
ceives. In a series of experiments
'covering nine months the bureau of
! home economics and the bureau of
| animal Industry studied the relative
I efficiency in vitamin D storage of dif-
ferent quantities of cod-liver oil and
iviosterol in the diet of the hen.
These studies indicate that In the
amounts usually fed, the vitamin D of
. cod-Tiver oil is more efficiently stored
in the egg yolk than is the vitamin D
of an equivalent amount of vlosterol.
When 2 per cent of cod-liver oil was
Included in the diet the vitamin D con-
tent of the yolk was significantly
greater than when 1 per cent was fed.
Fifteen minutes' Irradiation of the
hen with a carbon arc lamp apparent-
ly had the same effect on vitamin D
storage as 1 per cent of cod-liver oil
In the diet.
Mixing Retards Laying
Mixing old hens in the same section
of a laying house with pullets seems
to retard egg production by the pul-
lets. The hens are apt to be more
pugnacious and keep the pullets from
the feed hoppers and the water foun-
tains. Not all of the pullets are ho
easily Influenced but If 10 or 20 per
cent of ihe pullets are backward, It
cuts down the profits to a large ex-
Lack of Water and Grit
Causes Turkey Trouble
Turkey growers may encounter se- j
rlous trouble In their docks unless an
adequate supply of water and grits J
is provided, warns O. C. Ufford, Colo-
rado Agricultural College extension
poultryman. Mr. Ufford found several
such cases while on a recent visit to
conduct turkey caponizing demonstra-
Droopiness in turkey flocks may be
caused by mechanical trouble, says
Mr. Ufford. One eastern Colorado tur-
key grower has been losing a number
of poults. The birds would be droopy
for a few days and then die. Investi-
gation showed that the turkeys had
been eating considerable coarse feeds
such as dry alfalfa stems.
The birds were not getting enough
water to moisten the dry stems, and
they were not getting enough grits to
grind the feed. The result was that
the muscles of the gizzard, In trying
to grind the dry stems, contracted
vloleutly and Ihe walls of the glziard
were punctured by the sharp stems.
"Plenty of water anil grit available
to the turkeys at all times should
overcome any danger of this kind," he
Bald. "The wafer will moisten the
stems and the grit will aid In grind-
ing them and eliminating the trouble."

Little Girl Allure
This littie frock is so cute it would
add to the charm of a Shirley Tem-
ple—nothing more could be said for
a frock! It is the essence of little-
girl allure with Its droned-shoulder
yoke, Its cunning little collar and big
buttons running down to that devas-
tating point. The sleeves are short
and puffy—exactly as they should be,
and the box pleats are there so that
its wearer can run fast as well as
look pretty. It has well-fitting bloom-
ers, as do all right-minded frocks for
little girls in this year of grace!
