i den, and Miss Alice Bridges, i
District Demonstration agent1

. Arkansas were present and de-j
livered very entertaining and in
i structive addresses.
Mr. Lansden went at length in
to the relation of feed and care
to egg production, giving fig
■ ures to back up his statements
that more judgment used in win
, ter feeding would easily raise
■ the average production of Ark
ansas from 55 to at least 150
. eggs per year for each hen in
the state.
He also spoke of the need of
better housing of poultry in or
: derto get the best results, ad
■ vising all present to write to him
. for plans of a cheap, comfort
able poultry house.
i Miss Bridges spoke of organ
izing egg circles and cooperative
shipping of poultry to individ
. ual nearby markets,
j Both agree that only by co
, operation can the best results
be obtained in marketing the
. products of the flocks
Miss Bridges laid particular
stress on the use of new cases
in shipping eggs, telling of the
experience of several successful
co-operative egg and poultry
shipping circles in her district.
Mr. Lansden laid special stress
on the need of standardizing
the farm flocks of the commun
ity in order to get best results.'
As this is the only poultry as
sociation in White county we
wish to make it as successful as
the co-operative strawberry
shipping associations have prov
ed, so invite every poultry raiser
j to join the association, as in un
ity there is strength.

There are none of the original
nembers of the Association now
iving as far as is known. Col.
1. N. Smithee, editor of the Ar
cansas Gazette, was the first
resident and he has been dead
since 1902. Starting with a char
;er membership of 17, it now has
L63 active and 18 associate mem
>ers. A campaign has been con
lucted for the past year with
he slogan, “Every Editor in Ar-,
tansas a Member in 1922.”!
rhere are still a few who have
lot joined, but the increase in
nembership this year will be
rery large.
The Association, with added
nterest year after year, has car
ded out the objects of the foun
lers, wrhich was to promote the
nterest of the Press by securing
mity ot action in relation to the
irofession of journalism and the
lusiness of printing; to elevate
:he tone of the press, purify its
expressions, enlarge its useful
ness, advance it in wisdom and
justice, extend its influence in
the work of true civilization,
ind to cultivate friendly rela
tions and a spirit of fraternal
L-egard among its members.
The meetings which have al
ways been instructive and oth
erwise beneficial, have usually
wound up with an excursion to
some point of interest and these
annual trips have bee very en
joyable affairs.
For kali' a century the affairs
?f the assosSstfton have Been in
timately interwoven with the
listory of the state. Its member
ship has embraced many of Ar
kansas’ best and strongest men.
The Association has undoubt
edly exercised a good influence
n many ways. By resolution
ind through the active work by
ts memhprc if — ''
made every effort to assist in
the upbuilding of the State. It
has been active in promoting ed
ucational matters and the en
forcement of law and order; it
has been on the right side of ev
ery moral question and has nev
er condoned a wrong.
Among its earliest activities
was its work in the interest of
establishing a bureau of mines
and agriculture; and it has been
behind every movement for the
State to be represented at the
various national and internation
al exhibitions.
Early in its history, the Asso
ciation pledged itself to encour
age immigration, the building
of railroads, and the bringing
of capita! to the state. It has al
so been the main force in secur
ing legislation in regard to prop
er legal advertising, and it was
responsible for the passage of
the publicity law of 1013. It has
also labored to provide protec
tion for the newspaper in the
way of libel laws.
It at one time adopted a reso
lution pledging its members to
keep their columns free from bo
gus and humbug advertising.
It adopted a resolution in 1005
Lo any other member should be
applying a disgraceful epithet
to any other meber should be
expelled, unless. the member
making the reflection would, a
oologize through his paper.
