Texas Has Large Vitamin A Source Texas range forages even when dead • or dormant were found to contain considerable amounts of carotene, according to a paper pre sented by Dr. A. R. Kemmerer of the Agricultural Experiment Sta tion at t|ie Memphis meeting of the American Chemist Society, April 22. Dr. J. F. Fudge and Dr. G. S. Fraps were joint authors of the paper with Dr. Kemmerer. Carotene is the substance in plants that is converted into vita min A when it is fed to animals. Most of the dead or dormant for ages contain not less than 4.0 parts per million carotene. This amount of carotene is en ough to satisfy the vitamin A re quirements of range cattle; which, according to work done at the same Experiment Station, is 1500 micrograms ’ of carotene per 100 pounds of live weight. Sumac and kafir silage also contained appre ciable amounts of carotene; en ough if the silage is fed in quan tity, to meet the maintenance re quirements of cattle. The dried forages do not supply enough carotene for milk produc tion by dairy cows. Dairy cows need nearly a million micrograms of carotene daily to produce butter fat high in vitamin A. This can be obtained from almost all of the green forages analyzed. For a source of vitamin A green forages are the least expensive and most abundant, the scientists found. —DISTRACTIONS- (Continued Prom Pag# I) “TARGET FOR TONIGHT,” the film made by the British Royal Air Force about itself, plays today at Guion Hall. There will be no show at Guion Friday because of the Cotton Pageant festivities. “Target for Tonight” is a true- to-fact dramatization of an air raid on German oil fields. Its “ac tors” are boys and officers from the R.A.F. Thfe details of the bombing raid, are shown from the time the reconnaissance planes re port with aerial photographs to the ■ time the bombers accomplish their mission and return to Eng land. Throughout the picture, there is no evidence of ‘heroics,” and play ers and scenes are all shown as they actually are—a definite nov elty for movie-goers. Eastern Oregon college students have formed their own air raid protection unit and first aid corps. McQuillan Addresses Chemical Engineers The student chapter of the A. I. Ch.

Naval Air Corps Requirements Lowered to Admit High School Grads For the first time in the history of the Navy air branch, educational requirements for applicants tior cadetship and commissions as aviators have been lowered to allow the en listment of high school graduates and 18-year-olds, it was announced Saturday by Lieutenant Commander Barry Hol ton, senior member of the naval aviation cadet selection board. ^ “Heretofore,” Commander Holton said, “Navy aviation requirements have been such as tcf 7 Four hundred sixty-five co-eds ( at the University of Wisconsin are learning standard Red Cross fjrst aid methods in a special course. demand two years of college edu cation from the applicant. The lowering of the requirements is directly caused by the rapid expan sion of the fleet air arm and the speeded-up war program.” Age limits on applicants for naval aviation training have been lowered to include youths 18 years of age, Holton revealed. The previous requirement was 19 years. Commander Holton, quoting the announcement from superior of ficers in Washington, said: “The age limit for applicants for naval training is now 18 and they may be graduates of accredited second ary institutions and high schools who are desirable officer material and physically qualified and who demonstrate aptitude for flight training by passing’ an aptitude test.” Holton pointed out that appli cants under the new age limit and educational requirement must furnish a transcript of their high school credits, three letters of rec ommendation and birth certifi cates amj passport type photos of themselves. If they are under 21 years of age, they are required to have the written consent of their pa rents or guardians. All applications for Texas and Oklahoma for navy flying under the new plan will be made as usual through the Naval Aviation Cadet Selection Board in the Allen Build ing, Dallas, Young men may ap ply at their nearest recruiting sta tion and may be allowed govern ment transportation to Dallas.

Secretary Knox Appeals to Colleges New Orleans, La., April 29.— Emphasizing the importance of en listing 80,000 college freshmen and sophomores to meet the Navy’s future officer needs, Sec retary of the Navy, Frank Knox, has telegraphed the heads of 1,000 colleges and universities urging that they give the newly announc ed Class V-l their whole-hearted support. Secretary Knox said that through Class V-l, the U. S. Navy is counting upon the nation’s col lege freshman and sophomore classes to provide future officers for the U. S. Navy. He stated that Class V-l which enables those who enlist in the Navy to continue their education at least until the end of their sec ond year, is “democracy’s intelli gent and practical way of meeting America’s urgent need for thou sands of young college-trained of ficers without breaking down our educational standards or forget ting future needs for trained men for civilian life after the war is won. ’ . Approximately 400 colleges and universities already, have agreed to participate in the V-l program which offers the colleges the spe cial plan by which under-classmen between the ages of 17 and 20 may enlist as apprentice seamen but can at the same time stay in col lege. 6 Pairs of SENIOR BOOTS $17.50 - $20.00 LOUPOT’S For more Flavor For more Mildness The smoke of slower-burning: Camels contains 28% LESS NICOTINE than the average of the 4 other largest-selling brands tested—* less than any of them—accord ing to independent scientific tests of the smoke itself!
