New Motliod For
-Infra-Red brooding has ended the
poultryman's search for an efficient
- brooding method without the use of
hovers. The " Infra-fRed system em-
ploys a special 250 Watt Infra-Red
electric light bulb. This system re
quires no brooder or hover of any kind
whatever. The light bulb is suspend
ed from 16 to 18 inches above the1
heads of the chicks when they are put
in the brooder house. Naturally, the
bulbs are raised as the chicks grow.
Infra-Bed rays are very successful
in brooding chicks because they have
a way of creating heat within : the
chick. A chick will only stay under
a bulb for a few seconds at the time.
I he light rays from the bulbs are
very similar to the sun's light rays
which give a person a suntan. Every
one is familiar with the" .'fact that he
will get- a worse sunburn on a cloudy
day than a bright, sunny one. The
. reason - for' this is because the rays
which do the Burning are Infra-Red,
and are invisible,
' In brooding chicks by this method,
it is only necessary to have a tight,
well-floored house, which, is free of
drafts. y One bulb will take care of
100 to 160 chicks; and the average
life of a bulb is 5,000 hours.
What about the cost? That is al
" ways in omporfant item. The bulbs
cost $1,10 each, and will use a kilo
. watt every 4 hours. The bulb must
be kept lighted alt all. times. There-
" fore, it will use. 6 kilowatts of elec
tricity every 24 hours. At Sc per kilo
; watt, the use cost per day is 18c or
$5.40 for 30, days. I This is much
cheaper than a kerosene brooder and
more satisfactory than an electric
- "When Infra-Jted brooding is used
the poujtryman can see all of his
chicks at a glance, and it is not neces
sary to worry about the temperature.
He no longer ha to stand on his head
and wear out the knees of his pants to
get a brooder regulated. Neither does
he have to rake under a brooder every
morning to remove dead chicks.
It has long been known that cold
room brooding produced better fcirds
at less cost because of faster feather
ing. Birds brooded by this method al
so show a tendency to .put on fat more
rapidly than when brooded by con
ventional methods. i ' V
: When installing the bulbs," it is
necessary to use heavy wires to sup
ply the current as smaller wires may1
heat and cause trouble. '
The Infra-IRed method of brooding
chicks has been tested and thoroughly
proved by H. Bernard Helms, of Mon
roe. - Mr. Helms broods "thousands of
chicks" annually, and is now using, this
system exclusively. :
Several Chowaa County 4-H Club
members plan to use the Infra-Red
method of brooding their project
chicks in 1951."

the County Agent's office.

She said, "Three words .will enable,1

A few motorists, mostly those with
surnames beginning with A or B and
whose birthdays fall between January
1 and July 1, already are having to ob
tain second renewals of their driver's
licenses, the North Carolina Depart
ment of Motor Vehicles says.
Under the driver's licensing pro
gram, licenses expire on the birthday
of .the motorists four years after re
issuance. Since the re-issuance pro
gram Jtegan July 1, 1947, some motor
ists will not have held their licenses
quite four years, the Department
pointed out, but in setting up the re
issuance schedule, it was necessary to
place the expiration date on the birth
day nearest July 1. Expiration date
in 1955 for these motorists will fall on
their birthdays exactly four years"
from the 1951 renewal.
