Cannibalism is a vicious habit
that may develop In growing tur- Howe of Gastonia.
Keys oi any age, ana once started
can cause considerable loss and
trouble. , " . s
Cannibalism Is usually caused
by poor management which in
cludes crowding,, use of too few
feeders and wfaterers, improper
diet, or failure to ' teach' poults
to eat and drink.
The best way to stop cannibalism
seems to be toieed fresh cabbage
neads or other greens to the birds
in oraer to Keep uiem active and
out of mischelf. The greens should
be kept before them until the
trouble has stopped, usually from
a tew days to a week.
For birds more than 8 weeks old.
oats is recommended as a feed to
reduce cannibalism.
Friday, May 27th is the Democratic Primary election. Every
Democratic voter in Duplin County should vote. Each of you want
a voice in your government and the best way you can have a voice
is to go to the polls and cast your vote for the- man you think best
qualified to hold office.
I want to be your Senator. Naturally I want your vote but I
feel that the choice of a candidate is of lesser importance than the
fact that you decide to go and vote. If you feel you had rather vote
for one of my opponents than for me, I urge you to go and cast that
vote. If the majority of the people of Duplin feel that someone else
is better qualified to represent them in the State Senate than I am
then I want to see that man elected and will give him all the support
that I can If the majority feel that I can qualify, then I think' that
my opponents have the same feeling that I have. Our county must
be put above the individual.
