Poultry Diet Very
Importan at This
Season of the Year
Wf Mothers know that colds are pre
w yalent at this time of the year, and
they take precautions to protect
their children. "Chickens are also
subject to colds and other respira
tory diseases in the fall and winter,"
* warns Prof. Roy S. Dearstyne, head
o fthe State College Poultry Depart
ment. He says that the poultry diet
is very important in preventing cold
weather diseases in the flock.
Investigational work of the State
College Experiment Station has
shown that Vitamin A is necessary
in the poultry diet, not only to pre
vent respiratory diseases but also if
the chickens are to develop proper
ly and produce heavily.
"Practical sources of Vitamin A,"
says Prof. Dearstyne, -are yellow
corn, alfalfa products, green feeds
and certain fish oils. Due to short
ages of fish oils, which are obtain
ed from the livers of cod, halibut
and shark, it looks like a wise pro
cedure to stress grazing crops for
the coming year."
The State College worker also
recommends the elimination of di
rect drafts, damp floors and wet lit
ter in the poultry house at this sea
son. Good ventilation is necessary,
he stated, but the poultry house ven
tilators on the north, west and east
sides of the house should be closed.
The spaces between the rafters on
the south side of the house should
be left open, as well as the open
front of the house, which should face
Dry planer shavings, spread over
the floor to a depth of 3 or 4 inches,

advised. Sawdust also may be used
for laying house litter. Crushed corn

New Jersey, World's Mightiest, Launched
Thousands of grimy, dungaree-clad shipyard workers watched the 45,000-ton super battleship New Jersey
glide into the Delaware River at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. This is the heaviest man-o'war ever
built and queen of America's Fleet. The ceremony took place when the thoughts of the nation were on
the first anniversary of "a date which will live in infamy," the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7.

TREATING AND DEMNTING
OF COTTON SEED URGED
Uncle Sam needs Hitters (short
cotton fiber) for the manufacture of
explosives; farmers need better cot
ton seed to get the maximum effi
ciency from their labor in 1943.
Dr. S. G. Lehman, research plant
pathologist, and C. L. McCaslan, ex
tension agricultural engineer, of N.
C, State College, say that both re
sults may be achieved by the treat
ment and mechanical delinting of
cotton seed. They recommend that
cotton growers immediately have
their cotton seed rc-ginned and treat
ed with 2 1-2 ounces of 2 per cent
Ceresan, or 1 ounce of S per cent
Ceresan for each bushel of seed in
tended for planting.
"Experiments have shown that re
ginning increases the germination of
cotton seed," McCaslan stated. "This
delinting process takes most of the
short fibers or fuzz off of the seed.
These short fibers, or linters, are im
portant in the manufacture of ex
Dr. Lehman added that treating
cotton seed kills disease spores on
the surface of the seed and increases
germination in the field. He warn
ed, however, that seed are poison
ous after treatment and should be
used only for planting purposes.
McCaslan said, also, that linters
obtained from re-ginning seed will
go a long way towards paying for
the cost of re-ginning and seed treat
ment. The cost of re-ginning and
treating seed in one operation is
nominal. Re-ginned seed will flow
more uniformly through the cotton
planter, giving more satisfactory dis
tribution and spacing of seed along
The State College men suggested
that planting seed should be saved
from cotton which was not picked
too early in the morning, too green
or too wet. It should have been stor
ed in small lots and not allowed to
Biggest Bond Drive
I This month the U. S. Treasury
launched the biggest borrowing op
eration in world history By asking
citizens for 39,000,000,000?an amount
equal to 367.17 for every person in
the country?to finance the war. The
drive by some 344,000 volunteer
workers eclipses even the great
Fourth Liberty Loan of 1918 which
raised nearly 37,000,000,000. By such
a program, the Treasury will be able
to postpone further borrowing until
February, when it will be undertak
en every other month instead of ev
ery month, a plan permitting the
government to make larger offerings
of securities. There'll be bonds to
fit every pockettook?from 325 to
3100,000. The reason for the drive is
not only to raise money, but to raise
it in the right places?so as not to
rely too heavily on banks which now
hold more than two-fifths of all gov
ernment securities. Currently, the
war's costing 36,000,000,000 a month.
This is more than the bond drive will
produce, but the difference will be
made up in taxes.
