Section Two-Eight Pages Thursday, October 20,1960 Number 40 The First Christmas Seal Campaign The story broke on Friday, the 130i of December, in 1907. That first-day It was a quiet feature on an inside page. But the next day, and every' succeeding day until Christmas, it was front page stuff. It was the old- Philadelphia North American, now no. longer publishing, that ran the first story. Emily Bissell, a welfare worker of Wilmington, Delaware, went to the newspapers In the. hope that it might run a story' about her ef­ forts to raise $300 for the fight against tuberculous by selling some bright little Christmas Seals she had designed herself. The editor refused to help. On her way out she stopped to see Leigh Mitchell Hedges who .wrote a column titled \The Opti­ mist\. She told him that a Christ­ inas Seal Sale bad been an an­ nuo al and successful project in Denmark since 1904. When her doctor-cousin came to her for help in keeping open the cottage where he was' successfully, treating TB patients with new methods, the Christmas Seal seemed worth try­ ing. Friends had helped with contributions to print a few thou­ sand Seals to sell at a penny a piece, but buyers were few up to that time. Columnist Hodges, listened to her story and was immediately en­ thusiastic. He convinced the edi­ tor-in-chief that the North Ameri­ can could do a great public ser­ vice by calling' the Christmas Seals to the attention of its read­ ers. He was sure that, once people knew about them, . they... would .want to buy the Seals In order to fight one of man's oldest enemies, the so-called \White Plague.\ The headlines followed.-' \Christ­ mas' Stamps Make Clean Sweep. Everybody Buying.\ \Sale Leaps to S50,000.\ A total of 13,000 was raised.

As an example of this interest, the Am­ erican Medical Association's Jour­ nal of Diseases of Children re­ cently reported two studies deal­ ing with this subject. Both showed that the cholester­ ol level in a baby's blood is influ­ enced by the kind of formula the baby is fed. Infants are known to have low cholesterl at birth, but the levels rise thereafter. One study, done at the Iowa State University College of Medi cine, used 58 norma) infants under six months of age. They were divided into six groups, each fed a formula with a different fat base. The fats were derived from human milk, cow's milk, corn and coconut oil combinations and soya oil. The researchers found that the average concentration of choles terol was greatest in infants re­ ceiving human milk and least in infants receiving the sova formula. A similar study was performed in Gothenburg, Sweden. About two dozen normal babies were di­ vided into groups fed three basic types of formula during their first three or four weeks of life. Each group was fed human milk, cream-fat formula, or a formula with corn oil replacing the butter- fat. The researchers noted an initial increase in the fatty substances in the blood during the first few days of life when the fat was given either as a breast-milk fat, corn- oil or cream fat. However, when the fat was supplied in the form of corn oil, the fatty substances in the blood, after the initial in­ crease, rose at a significantly low er rate than when -the fat was derived from human or cow's milk. Why are medical researchers concerned with the effect of diet on infants' serum cholesterol? The Iowan investigators, Drs. Samuel J. Fomon and Donita J. Bartels, explain. \Fatty streaking of the inner lining of arteries in the early months of life suggests the possi­ bility that development of arther- osclerosis, a form of hardening of the arteries accompanied by fatty deposits, may have its beginning at this age. Research has dem­ onstrated the greatest annual change in Infiltration of the inner lining occurs in the first year of life.\ One study cited by the Iowa group found that aortas (the main blood vessel from the heart) of stillborn infants or those dying within a month of birth rarely contained fatty deposits. Yet, the aortas of three out of four infants dying between one and six months of age had such deposits. Farm Price of $4.64 Is Set for September Milk • A uniform farm price of $4.64 per hundred weight (46.S guarts) will be paid for milk received at pool plants In the New York-New Jersey milkshed in September, Dr. C. J. Blanford, market ad­ ministrator, announced today. The August farm prices was $4.41 while farmers received 4.89 per hun­ dredweight in September, 1959. The producer butterfat differen­ tial for August was 5.6 cents for each tenth of a pound of fat above or below the 3.5 percent standard. Receipts at pool plants were up 25,886,316 pounds, or 3.44 percent, over a year ago, Dr. Blanford re­ ported. Dairymen delivered 779, 189,882 pounds of milk this year compared to 753,303,566 pounds in September, 1959 Sales of fluid milk dropped 13,595,291 pounds, or 2.88 percent, from last year. Fluid milk sales totaled 458,017,978 pounds this year and comprised 58. 77 percent of the pool. In Septem­ ber, 1959, 62.60 percent of the pool.or 471,613,269 pounds of milk, was sold as fluid. The number of producers in September was down 767 from a year ago. In September, 1959, there were„49,775 producers in the pool. This year there were 49,008. The drop in the number of producers was offset by an increase In the DEAD HORSES & COWS Removed If Called Promptly Also buys old, crippled or down Horses & Cows LEN LITTLE Machias 8496 average deliveries per day per dairy, the administrator pointed out. Deliveries averaged 630 pounds per day per dairy com­ pared to 504 pounds last year. Reports from 395 handlers were used in computing the Septem­ ber pool, 34 fewer than the 429 reports used last year. The farm value of the Septem­ ber milk production, exclusive of the various differentials paid to dairy farmers was $37,253,111,42, Dr. Blanford said.
