in an address to 200 officerstudents !
at the army war college. Lack of
understanding was declared by Mr.
Harding to be the basic cause of all
conflict, whether between nations or I
domestic. He cited the disturbance j
in West Virginia as a case in point.
"The trouble with the world today"
Mr. Harding continued, "is that too j
many zhecrists know nothing about !
actualities, and have learned 'noth

this life brings the wisdom of ex
perience into a blend with the
teachings of theory makes a contri
bution to real progress.

ration of the world may lead us, no

in two thousand years of Christian
civilization and four thousand more
of pagan civilization concerning

"It has been a slow proceeding,
and 1 believe we of America, with
out unseeming boasting can say we
have come the nearest to unselfish,
conscientious warfare of any people
in the world.
"I am a firm believer that there
are two essentials to the civilization
to which we all subscribe. One is the
nnderstanding among men at home.
We ought to have na conflict like
that which is distressing us in West

of understanding. There should nev

nations and there never will be if

More than one-half of the 1,986 fac

There is no question as to the an

The men entering the purebred
hog business should use the same
kind of judgment that he would in
launching" out into any other line.
He should not be influenced by fads
and fancies,- but weigh the merits of
the various breeds and choose that
breed of hogs which nearest con
forms to his standard of an ideal
pork producing machine.
We wish to set forth the merits
of the DUROC BREED for your con
1. Due to the fact that the DUROC
has the ability to produce the.most
pounds in the shortest time and on
the least feed, statistics furnished
by the national Association show
him to be the most popular breed of
hogs. liv 1020, according to statistics,
51 per cent of all hogs marketed in
the United States were Durocs or
Duroc crosses. In 1919 the Duroc As
sociation recorded over 17,000 more
purebred animals than their compet
itor. Isn't that evidence that h*e
meets the demand of %both the feed
er and the packer?
2. DUROCS are prolific, the sows
always bringing good litters, raising
a large percentage of their pigs.. In
1920 out of the first one thousand
pedigrees recorded in volume G7 of
the National Association, there was
an average cf 9.52 pigs per litter and
7.13 pigs per litter raised. Thus the
OLD RED SOW can be safely relied
upon for at least an average of fif
teen pigs per year raised. What kind
of security of stocks do you own
that will pay such handsome divi
3. The DUROCS as a b/eed are
docile, quiet and easily handled. They
are easily confined but splendid
grazers, which cheapens the cost of
4. They are adapted to a wide
range of climate conditions, as ev
idence -of- this they are being raised
successfully from northern Canada
to the extreme southern part of S.
5. The DUROC is one of the two
solid colored breeds, which means
that every pig that is a good individ
ual is eligible for record and for
sale. There are no fancy points such
spots, white points, nor belt to be
lacking, thus excluding a good pig
from record and sale as a purebred
6. Durocs are big framed and
heavy boned and breed these charac- I
teristics. This makes their boars very
desirable for out-crossing on grade
sows by farmers.
Much more could be said of the
GREATEST OF ALL BREEDS, but
some one. has wisely said, "A hint to
the wise is sufficient."-The Duroc
