Claims Complete Proteins
Promote Maximum Health
With food shortages impending,
the quality and quantity of pro
teins in the human diet is assum
ing greatly increased importance.
This subject was recently empha
sized by Dr. Morris Fishbein, ed
itor of the Journal of the Ameri
can Medical Association. He says1
many people think only in terms
j of vitamin deficiency in connec
I tion with nutrition.
However, when the facts be
come known regarding conditions
now prevailing in Europe, Dr.
Fishbein feels certain it will be
found that protein starvation is
far more serious than vitamin de
ficiency because it produces a
breakdown of human tissues. This
in turn opens the way to disease
to a far g. eater extent than is
ordinarily caused by vitamin de
“In this connection,” states Mil
ton Hult, president of the Na
tional Dairy Council, “the United
States is in a fortunate position,
in that the amount of protein in
the American diet coming from
milk and its products has greatly
increased in tne past few decades.
Actually, milk, cheese and ice
cream furnish 40 percent more
protein for human consumption
than was true in this country 30
years ago. Since the proteins of
milk are of very highest quality
they are of special importance
during the emergency period in
suplementing the less complete
ones in many other foods. To
supply those needs it is antici
pated by the U. S. Department of
Agricuture that more fluid milk
Will Americans Be More Tender With
Their Money Than Lives of Their Sons
Washington, D. C.—A blunt challenge—whether Amer
icans will be more tender with their money than with the
lives of their sons—confronts U. S. citizens as they prepare to
meet the appeal of the government to put an additional 13
billion dollars into the fight in the next three weeks.
American dollars which run on to<*
some cozy shelter to hide while
American boys are dying to defend
our cities and towns from destruc
tion and invasion will face a rising
demand from all classes of patriotic
citizens to come out and fight.
Millions of workers who now are
buying War Bonds regularly out of
current income must lend extra
money to their government during
the Second War Loan campaign
(which started April 12).
In recognition of the spirit of sac
rifice which is sweeping over the
land as our troops swing into of
fensive action in Africa and await
the signal for a landing in Europe,
the Treasury Department is offering
a series of government bonds to fit
No matter whether Americans buy
the familiar Series E Bonds or 2)6
per cent bonds or 2 per cent bonds
or tax certificates, they will be doing
their part to make the Second War
Loan drive a success.
Consumer Spending Too High.
Consumer spending in 1942 was
much too high to meet the war situa
tion of 1943. Last year more than 1
82 billion dollars of our soaring na
tional income went to feed the de
sires of Americans for clothes, rec
reation, foods and luxuries. As these
items grow scarcer, more of our in
come must be diverted from such
expenses into government bonds.
During 1942 millions of our fathers,
sons, relatives and friends were in
training here and abroad. Some
were already in action. Casualties
were beginning to bite into every !
community. War Bonds became a
vital link between the home and i
Today sacrifice has become a way
of life for America’s fighting men. 1
Civilian spending on the 1942 scale
must go out the window if the home ■
folks are to attempt to match the [
heroism of our boys at the front.
Not every American can take his i
place in a bomber or in a foxhole
or on a fighting ship but he can fire
away at the enemy by lending
money to the government.
will be available this year for
consumption as such than ever
before and that fluid milk and
cream consumption will reach a
new high of 408 pounds per per

Blood Test Soon Essential
To Get Marriage License
Senator Martin Mischke’s two
anti-syphilis bills, L. B. 40 and
41, were signed a few days ago
by Governor Griswold. Neither of
the two bills carries the emerg
ency clause and do not become
effective until ninety days after
the legislature adjourns.
Mischke’s L. B. 40 relates to
pre-marital blood examinations
and provides that no person shall
be issued a marriage license un
til a physician’s statement is pre
sented showing that he or she are
not infected with syphilis. The
applicant for a marriage license
must have a blood sample, taken
by a physician, submitted to a la
boratory, approved by the health
department for examination, and
pay the costs.
The other bill provides for tak
ing of a sample of blood of preg

THE OLD JUDGE SAYS...
“Sure been a great year for crops, Judge
best we’ve had in quite a spell.”
“ That’s true, Henry... all over thecountry.
As a matter of fact, there’s been quite a
surplus supply of grain according to some
figures I saw in one of your farm papers the
other day. But that surplus is being used to
mighty good advantage and is making the
contribution of you farmers to the war effort
more important than ever.
Here’s just one example of what I mean.
The beverage distilling industry alone will
use 100,000,000 bushels of this surplus to
make alcohol seriously needed by the gov
ernment for gunpowder, synthetic rubber,
chemicals and medical supplies.
“So, keep it growin’ Henry... you’re doing
a great job.’’
