Eat Green Tomatoes, Leaves
For Vitamins, Says Botaniist
By IVAN KELLEY
When you eat a ripe tomato in-
stead of the leaves of the tomato
plant you are being about as logi-
cal as the slapstick comedian who
eats the wrapper and throws away
the candy bar.
This is one of the conclusions
to be drawn from the vitamin re-
search of Prof. Felix G. Gustafson
of the botany department.
Prof. Gustafson has found that
the concentration of vitamins B2
and B2 in the leaves of the toma-

well if they get worms and frogs

"The best tiey ever have is a rat
The young deer that's doomed
to dissection is one of many who
starve each year during the .spring
thaw. Anticipating these multi-
ple deaths, Detroit newspapers
send their cameramen up to Hig-
gins Lake each year to get gory
pictures of the dying deer.
According to Miss Literaty, "The
conservation officers spend their
free time for several weeks tearing
around the woods finding dead
deer for Detroit reporters."
to is more than twice as great as
it is in the fruit. His research has
shown further that the vitamin
content of green fruit is greater
than that of ripe fruit and that
young, growing leaves are endowed
with more vitamins than old
From a study of these phenom-
ena Prof. Gustafson has concluded
that vitamins are produced in the
growing leaves and that they dif-
fuse from the leaves to the other
parts of the plant, including the
fruit. His research has thrown
light on the process of vitamin
production as well as showing the
location in which the process takes
In one of Prof. Gustafson's ex-
periments some plants were grown
in light varying from very bright
to very dim and other plants were
grown in complete darkness.
He found that the plants be-
came progressively richer in vita-
mins as the light intensity was in-
creased and that the plants
grown in darkness were poorest,
of all in vitamins. From this he
concludes that vitamin production
depends very heavily on the ef-
fect of sunlight and that the proc-
ess is probably connected in some
way with photosynthesis.
Regarding the comparative vita-.
min content of tomatoes and to-
mato leaves, Prof. Gustafson con-
cludes that "You can hardly ex-
pect people to eat green tomo-
toes or tomato leaves but they
would be getting more vitamin B1
and B2 if they did."

Now is the time when a student's
fancy turns more earnestly to-
wards what he's been thinking
about for the last semester and a
half-what to do this summer.
If you have the time, the ambi-
tion to learn as well as enjoy your-
self, and-a minor detail---money,
why not go abroad to study at one
of the several universities offering
courses to American students.
Several British colleges and uni-
versities have opened their doors
to 600 Americans who will not only
gain full credit for their studies
but may also apply for scholar-
ships. The colleges and their
fields of concentration are: Ox-

ature; St. Andrew's in Scotland,
