terrific. These plants are run oti

upset an entire shift- We told this
manager and the Negro personnel
director we would try through these
columns to call the attention of these
workers to the facts. Cutting scrap

talking, repeated layoffs, drunkness,
obscene language, unsightly wearing
apparel and utter disregard of orders
from foremen are a few complaints.
One of the 100 or more workers
whose names headed the list, was a
steel worker, father of twelve. When
asked why he was absent so often,
he said, “The work is too hard, I am
sick, I thought you were from the
Relief Organization. I want to get
back on relief.” The Relief situat

first created, but it has ruined so
many Negroes, who think the govern

The teeth are formed during
pregnancy and good teeth require
the food elements which go into
their structure, mainly calcium,
phosphorus and vitamin D. The
general and widespread tooth decay
among both children and -adults is
evidence that we do not apply the
knowledge we have.
Years ago, at the University of
Iowa, it was found that in the feed
ing of diabetic children, although
they were restricted in the food they
could have, tooth decay could be
greatly reduced or entirely stopped
if they rigidly kept on the pre
scribed diet. The diet was planned
so that it provided the food ele
ments necessary for teeth.
For the ten year old child, Dr. J.
D. _ Boyd suggests the following
basic daily diet: one quart of milk,
one egg, 3V£ oz. of meat, 2 serv
ings of vegetables, 2 servings of
fruit, 1 teaspoon of cod liver oil, 1
oz. butter plus some additional fat,
3 slices of bread plus 1 serving of
other cereal, 3% oz. potato (about
Vi cup mashed), 5 level tablespoons
'sugar and sweets.
These are the same foods as
,those given in the Government
chart of the Seven Basic Food
Groups for all of the family and
include the same foods as are in
troduced to infants during the first
year of life.
Babies are gradually introduced
to cod liver oil or other source of
vitamin D, orange juice or another
form of vitamin C, cereals, vege
tables, fruits and eggs.
The right fo-^s will supply all of
the food eler without resort to
vitamin and I concentrates.

3 NEGRO SOLDIERS ON TRIAL
FOR MURDER OF ITALIAN .
Seattle, Washington, (PPNS) —
Three Negro soldiers who are accus
ed of actively participating in an at
tack with 40 other soldiers on a group
of Italian prisoners interned at Fort
Lawson, which resulted in the death
by hanging, of one Italian prisoner
and the assaulting of several others.
The attack took place last August 14
and reportedly came as an expression
of disapproval by American soldiers
who protested the holding by Italians
of “soft jobs’’ around the camp. (
The men, who will appear before
the court-martial this week for
charges of murder are: Pvt. William
G. Jones; Cpl. Luther Larkin and
