is shown collecting eggs from tils present flock of Rhode Island Reds.
Melvin Harper o Albertsoni N.; C has recently completed his
' six months record on his 'flock of New Hampshire Reds. Melvin
. made a total profit of $179.36 on his birds
" Melvin Is a member of the B. F. Grady 4-H Club and re- .
' ceived this flock of birds throughyt-H Club poultry chain sponsored ;
by the1 Sears, Roebuck Foundation. Melvin received 103 baby chicks
and averaged keeping '74 birds in production during the' six months J"
period that was under study. Melvin . scored. "Good" on the birds : ,
he keep In production.' - . - .r-:-VVv,f,:f.-;-',-
It cost $176.10 to keep this small flock In production for six
- months. The hens produced an average of 103 eggs each for a profit
- of $2.43 per bird. The egg production was low and should have been
higher,, but this Is the first time Melvin has tried his hand at raising
poultry, Melvin scored "Fair" on his egg production and "Excellent?
on his profit Per bird. To continue his, 4-H club work. Melvin has L
. raised 100 white rocks to replace his present flock this fall. He would
have continued to use New Hampshire, but he was unable to locate
what he wanted this year. ' -
'' This is a very fine record for small flock and they will con- '-'
v tlnue to produce through the summer, but it will be necessary to '
replace them with younger birds this fall. Melvin was In a controlled
4-H dud chain project and could not raise a large number of birds, '
but it is the opinion of the Extension Poultry Staff of State College
and the County Agerfts Office that Melvin could have managed 400
'- birds and would not have consumed any more of his time In the

During the earlier " years there
were no specified requirements a-
bout the size, material or location
of the roadside boxes. Any old box
would do. Sometimes kitchenware
was mounted on a shaky pole. Most
common ailments of mail boxes to

the box obstructed and not proper
ly graded, position of the box too
jlgh or too low, not waterproof,
post not firmly planted and not
'.evel, poorly secured to post and
painted with some color other than
white or aluminum. Names should
be painted in 1-inch black letters.

closet she had built herself. She
said that after the demonstration
given on clothes closets she was
determined to have one. This closet
does not having the finishing touch
of a professional carpenter, but for
an amateur, Mrs. Stalling did a
marvelous job. After we left the
bedroom, she took us into the
kitchen and showed the group a
smaU base cabinet she had made
herself for her kitchen. The wom

A Call For Clothing
,iWe are already planning ahead
f or tiext winter'', Mrs. Taylor, Sup
erintendent of the Department of
Public, Welfare, advised us, as she
stopped to chat for a few moments.
We started .a ''clothing closet last
fall and had wonderful success. We
isked the Home Demonstration
Piluos 'wroughpuf tiWiSoiint to tSo
tlnue - and they did. They were
1 unanimous. Nearly all of the
clothing was clean, pressed, and in
5ood repair. Since then other organ--"-ns
have added from time to
' We in turn have been contribut
ing whenever we had calls, but we
have not yet been able to meet the
demand. We need children's cloth
ing most of all. Our greatest de
mand for clothing is in the winter,"
Mrs. Taylor continued. "Often we
find children out of school because
they haven't suitable clothing. Now
is the time of the year when people
have already cleaned out their
closets or are planning to do so. We
are wondering if a supply of warm
winter clothing is not lying unused
in closets or trunks. Boys' pants,
sweaters, jackets, underwear, and
girls' dresses, sweaters, coats, in
fact any kind of warm clothing in
good repair would be welcomed."
Mrs. Taylor also suggested that
sheets, blankets, quilts and furni
ture was desired. The Woman's Club
in Rose Hill, tHrough their "Help
A Home" project has supplied some
furniture. The clothing closet is
not spacious enough for storage of
furniture. The Rose Hill club do
nated the furniture, but stored it
until arrangements were made for
its delivery to the one who was to
receive it. Mrs. Taylor suggested
that any one who has clothing or
anything else to contribute write
