The Stale of North Carolina pays
the bill for a first-class stilt, al
ways kept, in operating condition,
right in the center of Waynesve.
The still is maintained by Sjite
employees, arid is for the benefit
of any resident who wants to make
use of it. . '.
One reason, however, that the
still operates day after day without
even a raised eyelash from the
Sheriff's department is that Us
only product is water.
Distilled water is essential for
making laboratory sugars and agar;
and this stilt is part of the equip
ment at the Poultry Diagnostic
Laboratory on Miller Street. Noth
ing is lucking to make this a fully
equipped setup, ready to do any
tvpe of regular diagnostic work.
The laboratory opened in Jan
uary to serve the rapidly growing
poultry industry in Western Caro
lina. In charge is Dr. Calvin C.
Gatz, a graduate of the Kansas
State Veterinary College and vet
eran of six years in the Veterinary
Corps and the Army Medical Ser
vice Corps during World War II.
His assistant is Mrs. Robert C. Hall,
a graduate of the University of
North Carolina who later served as
technician in the cancer laboratory
at Duke University.
"The climate here Is particularly
favorable to the development of a
poultry Industry," says Dr. Gatz.
"The combination of the humidity,
the rainfall, and above all the cool
weather is splendid for chicken
raising, Kggs laid in hot climates
have what we call low hatchability.
Right here we are In the summer
