has appropriated $148,000. to be used
in sending emergency poultry work
ers Into the different states. As Mis

it is one of the four states that get
two of these workers. Ralph L. Ma

already arrived and will work with
the poultry department here. Tho
other worker has not yet been ap
pointed but he will be stationed at
Springfield. He will also work in con
nection with the poultry department
This campaign, to double the poul
try production in Missouri next year,
is now being launched. Poultry ral

Posters, advertising the dates 01 me
rallies, have been sent to the county
seats for display. The County Coun
cil of Defense and the Farm Bureau
are to arrange for the meeting place
and do further advertising.
Because of the high price of feed,
many people have reduced the size
of their flocks. It Is ithe aim of the
present campaign to J restore confi
dence in the poultry business and to
Increase production. At the rallies
the people will be asked to agree to
carry out certain plans:
First Set only the best eggs. These

Each poultry raiser is urged to use
more care with his poultry, and by
means of a slight increase in the num
ber of birds on the farm and with
practically no extra expense, at least
to double the poultry production of
Missouri next year.

the first 48 hours so that the yolk
will be well digested, thus preventing
many Intestinal troubles.
Fourth Feed milk or meat scrap to
chicks so that they will grow faster
and be more healthy.
Fifth Dispose of all surplus cock
erels before they weigh over 2J4
pounds. The reason for this is that
early gains are the most profitable,
