a read that and here I quote in essence, the young people of
f have no sense of responsibility, they are lazy, they waste their
Me time. Well, do you think that is a new indictment, something
..:;r to this youth of 1954? You can find exactly the same charges
i articles written in 1900, in 1800, eVen in 1700. No doubt even the wise
thought their sons and daughters were not all they ought to .
Le. Tula blaming our children for our own sins has gone on since the
t. sinning of time. It is nothing new. Doubtless our grandchildren will (
raise their hands in horror, at the so-called immorality and heedless-'
ness of the generation that comes after them.
A blanket indictment of the young people of today is a far worse
reflection upon our own generation. If they are failing, it is because
we have failed ourselves. If they are straying from the paths of
righteousness, we showed them the way not by our words but by our
: . actions. We. all learned long ago that the sins of the fathers are
visited upon the children - but we shouldn't blame the children for
, - our own mistakes. ' 1
T A ,,,. ' ....
-.v. The-whole point is, of course, that we want them to succeed where
we failed. AU those virtues we lack ourselves, we'd like . them to
have. Our memories aro notoriously short when it comes to our own
. shortcomings. We can and do get Awfully self-righteous and moral
, when we have passed the age of temptation. Maybe we even resent
that fact , v. .

' He said, that not only was his the age of anxiety but it could also
: be called the age of apathy. Young people today, he said, lacked
spirit lacked courage, lacked the will to stand up and fight. When
he said that I was shocked, and sick at heart. I felt as if the youth
f the world were looking straight at us, straight through us. They
, were weighing us, and we were found wanting. Like all young ani
mals they have been quick to sense the smell of fear in their
Ciders. A fear that seems to grow stronger daily, a fear that hangs like
a pall over the country, a fear has sapped the courage of many of
our leading statesmen, our politicians, even our army.
. No Wonder these kids shake their heads in bewilderment. They
are not Stapid. They can see the evil shadow of a sinister senator
weakening the very things that made our country great. They see
, men judged without due process of law, bullied by a tyrant filled
with a lust for power. And we do nothing. Let us face it honestly.
We lack the guts to do anything. Worse," when a few courageous
people dare raise their voices, we refuse to back them up.
These young people look at the sordid spectacle of an honored and
decorated general insulted and treated shamefully because he obeyed
oders .from his superior officers. And the head of the army who
dared back him up, who dared protest the shabby treatment of this
man who had served his country honorably and well, slapped down
by the administration, made to crawl and grovel in the dust before
the feet, of a power-mad politician. And they turn, these young
i people, and look at us to see what we are going to do about it.
They read, too, and they listen. And they read and hear these
' words from the London Times. "Joe McCarthy was able to do what
neither Burgoyne nor Lord Cornwallis could, he defeated the army
of the United States." "What the Japanese and the legions of Hitler
and Mussolini could not accomplish, this senator did, he made the
U.S. Army back down."
,' Shades of our forefathers! We might use the words of William
Vaughn Moody in protest.

V ebildrens children to take our stand. That yoke of the tyrant we

ur lads that we still have in us the spirit of liberty, time we proved
we're not afraid to fight for it.

The path of the busy poultry
man is strewn with opportunities for
mistakes.. Mistakes are made every
day and they're costly," says R. S.
Dearstyne, head of the department
of poultry science at N.
. Dearstyne says one of the cost'
liest of poultry management mis
takes is made by the busy 'producer
who "forgets" to clean and disinfect
his brooder house between each
group of chicks raised.

QUESTION: What can I do to
avoid an outbreak of leucosis in
ANSWER: Leucosis is caused by a
virus. There are some five different
types affecting chickens in North
Carolina. For control first of all,
try to secure chicks from a source
that is free or reasonably free of
the disease. Then brood chicks away
from old hens' and where there is
no traffic from the old hen house
to the brooder house or where
traffic is not across. infected grounds
and into the brooder house. The
main thing is to try to minimize
the possibility of infection the first
12 weeks of the chicks' life. If this
is done, leucosis will not cause the
losses that otherwise would result.
Grow pullets on clean, green range.
Place them in a laying house that
has been thoroughly cleaned, disin
fected and rebedded with six inches
of sawdust, or preferably dry wood
shavings. Have roosting racks en
closed with wire so that birds do
not have ready access to droppings.
Then support these measures of
sanitation with a rigid culling pro
gram. The removal of all birds at
the first sign of leucosis will retard
the spread of the disease in the
QUESTION: How can I recognize
leucosis in my chickens?
ANSWER: After birds have start
edto lay notice their eyes as you
cull out the non-producers. Grey
eyes with an irregular shaped pupil
should be culled. Do not mistake
pearl eyes or blue eyes or off
colored eyes for the ocular type of
leucosis, but pay close attention to
the shape of the pupil. If the out
line of the pupil is very Irregular
and begins to fade back into the
iris of the eye, then this Is the be
ginning of the ocular type of

Dearstyne. Following one group of

A summary of 53 farm flocks of
sheep in' 12 counties showed that
the average farmer had a 119 per

6H pounds of wool, returned him

A study of this survey shows that
progress -is being made in some
phases of sheep production, but
other' important practices are being
neglected. 70 per cent of these flock
owners had small grain or other
cover crops for winter grazing. 80
per cent fed ewes grain before
lambing. 92 per cent fed grain after
lambing, 76 per cent fed lugume or

foot per bird would be better. "An-
ouier great error,' according -to
Dearstyne, "is that of overheating
chicks. The baby chicks is not a
'hot house' animal. Too little atten
tion is given to temperature regula
tion. While t j must be
correct for good t uj, the quicker
the chicks are d away from
heat, within reason, tne more vital

appear among growin gbirds. Uany
culls are devitalized, which, in turn,
indicates high susceptibility to dis

usually is a menace of flock health.
