(holds, Is given sharper emphasis by
the fact that there has been a 160 per

during the past twelve years.

on. a national scale as a practical ap

corner, you are going to clip the buttons off the wrong pedes
trian's vest, and he is going to catch up with you, haul you
off your comfy upholstery and deal you the smacking-down

may be done In contact printing,
but more effectively in making en
largements. It is done by holding
something opaque between the light
source and the paper, such as a
piece ot cardboard, In such a way
aa to keep the light from striking
a certain area for a certain portion
of the time. Thus, that part which .
continues to receive the full light
will print darker than the part from
which the light Js held back. In
other words, the light is caused to
"dodge" a certain area.
Virtually, the shadow from the
cardboard in the hands of the pho
tographer is used as a paint brush.
It serves to light the dark parts.
In another way, a print is "dodged
by using a piece of cardboard with
a bole, in it; The hole lets through
4 peh-ftt of ght which is manipu
lated over the surface of the paper
and serves to darken the light parts.
The Intelligent use of a "shadow
brush" or "light brush" in this fash
ion requires a preliminary study
of the negative or a contact print
as it would ordinarily register in
order to discover where "dodging"
would improve the picture. Often It
means a number of trials before the
result is satisfactory.
Amateurs who do not enlarge
their own negatives may suggest
to their photo finisher how they,
think a print may be Improved by
"dodging," and ask him for a special
Job on it Of course, the greater sat
isfaction comes from doing this
work yourself. But. that is the way
many of the lovely effects we see In
--ion photographs we obtained.

Explains How To Give
: Turkeys A Good Start
One of the secrets or successful
turkey-raising is getting the poults
off to a good start.
"If you do this, you have won half
the battle," said C. P. Parrish, exten
sion poultry specialist at State Col
lege. The first consideration, he said, is
to put the breeding birds in good
condition so they will produce hatch
ing eggs of the best quality.
To hatch healthy, vigorous poults,
the eggs must contain all the ele
ments of food stuff3, except oxygen,
that are necessary to nourish the
embryo during the 28-day incubation
Therefore, Parrish pointed out,
breeding birds should be fed a good,
well balanced ration. A good com
mercial or home-mixed laying mash
is recommended in the feed from
January to June.
The mash feeding should start
about a month before the turkeys
begin laying and should continue as
long as eggs are desired for hatch
The eggs should be gathered twice
a day and if possible stored in a well
ventilated place where the tempera
ture remains between 50 and 60 de
grees Fahrenheit. The eggs should
be turned once a d, and should not
be kept longer than 10 days or two
weeks before being placed under a
hen or in an ineuoator.
Turkey eggs may be incubated by
either chicken or turkey hens or by
