This is the season of the year when
a small amount of negligence may
prove costly to the farm poultry rais
er or the commercial poultryman.
says T. T. Brown, Extension poul
tryman of N. C. State College.
Improper management of the lay
ing flock or the young pullet flock
can easily reduce profits now and
during the next 12 months. Since
eggs are already improving in price,
indifferent management of laying
flocks or chicks'during this season
will prove expensive.
If the flock is well cared for, the
poultryman can expect a satisfactory
margin of profit from his eggs in a
few more weeks. This will necessi
tate careful culling, a job that
should be done each week.
Hens that go broody should be
banded with a spirolet and placed in
a broody coop. Such a coop should
have a wire bottom and should be
suspended at least two to three feet
above the floor to permit free air cir
culHtiun under and around the hens.
If broody hens are confined to
such a coop at the first signs of
broodiness and both mash and grain
kept before them, they will not us
ually require more than five to six
days to come back into production.
If allowed to remain on a nest sev
eral days before confinement, it may
equire weeks to break the broody
Brown also advised poultrymen to
open laying houses at the back and
ends so as to give the flock plenty
of ventilation during the summer
season. If the birds are not kept cool
and comfortable, feed consumption
will drop and so will egg produc
tion. In case the birds stop eating to
a noticeable extent a wet mash at
noon will, stimulate greater feed
consumption and hold egg produc
tion more steady through the hot
America's workers want to step up
war production and they have some
good ideas on how to do it. A well
organized and fast-acting "sugges
tion campaign" is a key factor, ac
cording to word from Akron. Since
the first labor-management commit
tee in the rubber industry was or
ganized in the plant of B. F. Good
rich there, with an amplified sug
gestion routine, a barrage of worth
while ideas has flooded in. The rate
is 75 per cent greater than before the
committee was formed, it is report
ed, and, even more important, two
thirds of the suggestions received
are so practical as production-boost
ers and waste-eliminators that they
have already been put into practice.
The committee is composed of si*
representatives of Rubber Workers'
Union, Local No. 5. and six of the
management. Sub-committees con
centrate on production, safety, trans
portation, waste and material sav
ings, and publicity and promotion of
Changes Must Be
Made In Prices
The "time lag" between whole
cause most of the consternation and
hardship retailers will experience
under the OPA general price regula
tion order Example: In March?the
month whose price top is used as the
limit in future prices?a haberdash
er was selling a certain shirt for
$1.50, having bought them for $12
a dozen, wholesale. Now he has to
keep on selling the same shirt for
$1.50, although in the meantime the
wholesale price has gone up to $16
a dozen Multiply that circumstance
by just about every item that a store
carries and you can begin to imag
ine the scope of adjustments and re
trenchments that the over-all price
ceiling makes necessary . Despite
the severity of the pinch, the order
was generally received without
grumbllnga? tribute to the coun
try's appreciation of the need for
