SIX (nee - Action Ret< Feature < 5j "Knee-action is here to stay? ] We haven't considered for a mocnent omitting it from Chevrolet ."Master deluxe models for 1936." Thus did W. E. Holler, vice-president and general sales maneager of Chevrolet Motor Company, emphatically state that the (Company's new cars, to be introduced November 2, would ofrfer individual front wheel suspension in the line. "Our 1936 models will offer the ' same option in springing as the -.935 models; this is, the Master Jeluxe cars will be available with Bther knee-action or conventional iprings, and the Standard models With conventional springs only," Mr. Holler declared. "Chevrolet has made great changes in its plan set-up for .manufacturing leaf springs, and also has purchased much new : machinery for the making of leaf springs. The reason is that we needed these facilities because 'we will introduce a greatly improved design of leaf-spring suspension in the 1936 Standard .models. The effect is to improve ithe ride, by changing the layout :and the design of the leaf spring 30 that they give more nearly equal front and rear action. "On the 1936 Master deluxe, :the Chevrolet type of all-enclosed "knee-action units will be retained ; unaltered, except for minor chan- j . ges in assembly methods. Even i if we could obtain, with conventional leaf-spring suspension, a' ride as soft and as smooth asj mee-action provides, we would lot drop knee-action because of' ts many other advantages?es- j ecially shockless steering, which ontributes so greatly to safety and to driving ease." "The Chevrolet type of kneeaction has been a success from the start. Today, more than 1,000,000 knee-action Chevrolets are in use, and during the current year, more than 96 per cent of purchasers of the Master deluxe j models chose knee-action cars, j gladly paying more for them | than the price for the identical cars with ordinary springs. "The enthusiastic reception ac- j - corded our 1936 models by ourj own field forces, during their convention in Detroit, is now be- j ng repeated, in every region and i pne territory, by our dealers.! {hey all agree that Chevrolet las done a great job in its new cars, and they all are enthusias-1 tic over the business prospects, j We feel that the public will be | just as responsive to our 1936 cars when they go on public dis.play November 2nd." Hog-Killing Tips In Radio Talks JR. E.

Farmers with a good supply 01 corn can hardly afford not t( I raise pigs this year, says W. W Shay, swine specialist at Stat* College. Corn fed to hogs will yield on an average, about $1.30 a bushel, as compared with 75c a ; bushel when sold on the market as corn. Shay also states that 30-pound pigs sold for $4 each, as is often the case, do not return the farmer any profit, since it costs that I much to produce a pig of that weight. But as the pig gains in weight, the cost of production for each pound steadily diminishes until !the hog reaches a weight of around 200 pounds. Not counting the corn, the cost of producing 100 pounds of meat on a hog is about $3.20. When hogs are valued at $11 per 100 pounds of live meat, there remains $7.80 to cover the cost of the corn. Six bushels of corn will usually produce 100 pounds of meat, Shay pointed out. Hence the corn may be considered as bringing a return of $1.30 a bushel when converted into pork. Or if the corn is figured at 75 cents a bushel, there is a net profit of $6.66 on each 200-lbs. hog sold for $22.00.

Scrub Bulls Are Always Expensive Hard - Headed Dairymen Once Observed That "You Pay For A Good Bull Whether You Own One Or Not" A hard-headed business dairyman once said, "You pay for a good bull whether you have one or not." "If you have a good one, the profits from the herd enable you to pay for him. "If you keep a scrub, the lowered efficiency of the herd will cost you more than a good bull." So if dairymen are going to pay, one way or another, for a good bull, there is no reason why they should not have one, said John Arey, extension dairy specialist at State College. The herd sire represents 50 per cent of the future of the herd, Arey pointed out. A few poor yK3(K3t3CK3CX3C3C3l3IK3Ca I Farmers ai I! SEE US BEFC )! II Windows & Do I !

THE STATE P( ' cows may do some damage to' I the herd, but a scrub sire will , ruin the best of herds in a few years. The term "good bull" is used j . j to mean a purebfed bull of good [ ! type with a continuous produc- \ I tion record through his ancestry, Arey explained. Such a bull will' I transmit both his type and his j " high production strain to his off-! springs. The transmitting capacity of a [ .j good bull has been proven be- j i yond a doubt, Arey stated. Even) 5 when bred to poor cows, the offsprings will have comparatively i high milk production ability. ; A dairyman with a herd of j comparatively poor cows can, in ^ j two generations, breed up a fairly high producing herd by always f breeding to good bulls, Arey } said. | If the herd is small and the j dairyman feels he cannot afford ' a good bull, Avery continued, the least he can do is have his cows | bred to good bulls from near-by L herds. , Farm Questions i Question?What minerals do j brood sows need during the gestation period? Answer?A satisfactory mineral mixture can be made by thoroughly mixing 10 pounds of acid phosphate, 10 pounds ofj hardwood ashes or ground lime-1 stone, and 2 pounds of common J salt. The animals should have ac-1 cess to this mixture at all times. Proper care and feed for the ani-| mals during this period is also! necessary for best results and I this information is given in Ex-1 tension Circular 151., copies of, which may be had free upon | application to the Agricultural! Editor at State College. Question:?How long does it i take to cure sweet potatoes and I what should be the average temperature of the house? Answer?It usually takes about two weeks for proper curing with the temperature maintained at 80 ,to 85 degrees. Plenty of ventilation, however, must be given i during the curing in order to j drive off all moisture. Watch the potatoes carefully and when the buds show a tendency to sprout iand the skin feels "velvety" the curing is completed. After curing, (allow the temperature to drop to about 50 degrees F. and keep it as close to that mark as possible | while the potatoes are kept in storage. Question ? What size lights must I put in my poultry house for artificial lighting? Answer?This depends upon the "w nf fho hnnao hut tnm fnrtv. ? ? J watt bulbs for each 400 square ] feet of floor space gives the most satisfactory results. The bulbs should be placed in the center of the house ten feet apart and six [ feet above the floor. To prevent lighting the entire house, a reflector sixteen inches in diameter ' and four inches deep should be used with each light bulb, i F. S.
