INCENTIVE TO BETTER WORK
Si wring Aims at Elimination oij
Announcement was msde yesterday
by iK-puty State Dairy and Food Com?
missioner Peyton Howe that a milk
tnii cream show and contest will be
held In Richmond on some date yet
to be fixed for the latter part of this
month. Milk and cream will be
shipped to this city from all parts of
the State to be entered in thla con?
test, which will be conducted by the
Dairy and Food Division
The primary purpose, of course. Is
to teach producers the fundamentals
of clean milk production and to offer
them an incentive. The first milk and
< ream contest was held during the
National Dairy Show in Chicago In
l Mg, and the effect of such affairs lias
en s<> satisfactory as to offer an
Incentive to the I'lrglnia department
to plan for a show in this city.
In the sanitation of dairies where
milk and cream la product d, laws can

knowledge of better methods of pro?
duction. Diplomas will be awarded

petition score above a certain point.

No restrictions will be placed as
1 to the production of the samples foi
tue contest. Kach dairyman is al?
lowed to prepare his offerings in his
own way. but la required to state upon
I his entry blank the methods used In
preparation. Answers to the questions

Batik is handled in a number of ways
I after it Is drawn from the animal.
All samples of milk or cream entered
; in the contest must, however, be pro?

of the same age when acored. After!
the milk has been bottled, it la to be

vised. Samples arc to Be soorrd for
bacteria, flavor, odor, visible dirt. fat.

tttrntloa tu Hacleria.
The samples are all plated lor bac-!
teriological examination the same day.
Standard methods of plating on ?Spar I
are Bsasd, and samples are incubated for
forty-eight hour*. Any sample having
less than Mi bacteria per centime!* r
receives a perfect score, while a sam?
ple having more than BawtssM bacteria
per cubic centimeter receives xero.
Realizing The importance, of this
feature ,.f bacteria in milk, which is
extremely undesirable from both health
and economic standpoints, the great

Franchise Slated for Dark
It is i.uromonly reported on the street
that the Councilman friendly to tho
Richmond and Hetir'ico Hallway, con?
stituting a majority of the Common
Council and Board In joint session,
will oust Morgan R. Mills snd Alder?
man Ordway Puller, both of whom
voted against a franchise for this com?
pany, from important committees of
the reorganized Council. Th!*i. how -
ever. ha.H been streu .ously denied, but
seeius to have creditable foundation.
Tlie announcement of the seven com?
mittees of the Council, as reconstruct?
ed under the Administrative Board or?
dinance, will be made Monday night
at a joint session of the Board of
Aldoi men ami the Coanaaon council, it
is declared that there BfsjU be many
changes in the personnel of the com?
mittees, and thai Important chairman?
ships will not. b* reassigned to the
present holders. With the exception
of Councilman Gilbert K. Pollock and
possibly one or two others, none of
the present chairmen will he re-elect?
ed. The committees as appointed w',11
meet this week for organization.
I A wild report is current to the effect
that a member of the Council will In?
troduce an ordinance Monday night
providing for a special elpctlon to de?
termine whether the c'ty desires to
continue the Administrative Board as
constituted, or to revert to the old plan
of Council government. Leaders of tho
1 Council declared last night that the
Con Boll has not yet been vested bv
the legislature with the power of ex?
ercising the referendum and recal.. and
tint aattl an amendment to the charter
of the city of Richmond '* obtained,
such a referendum as that proposed
by the unknown Councilman will be
beyond the province of the Council.
It is pointed out that the Adminis?
trative Board principle was not put
into effect by the people at a special
election, but was created by vote of
the City CoiincM: therefore, being a
ereatwe of the Council, any abolition
01 the Administrative Board must be
accomplished by a majority vote of
the City Council. I'ntil the referendum
