Immunized Hogs the Money Maker
Never before was the farmer offer
ed such an opportunity to realize such
good returns on his hog investment.
Statistics show that the population of
the United States has increased 15
per cent within the last decade while
the production of meat animals has
gradually fallen off. Faced by the
war demand for meat products the
American farmer should recognize it
as a definite duty to increase the pro
duction of hogs. This country will
be called upon to make heavy exports
of meat for years to come, thus guar
anteeing continued high prices, but
in order to participate in these prof
its with reasonable certainty the hog
grower must take every precaution to
insure raising his hogs to maturity
to get their market worth.
It is well known that hog cholera
is the worst foe the hog grower has
to contend with and up until a few
years ago the hog industry' suffered
enormously from cholera outbreaks,
not altogether from the loss occasion
ed by the disease but by being forced
to maiket breeding stock and half
fat hogs. Fortunately sci
ence has discovered a preventative in
Anti-hog Cholera Serum and with the
interest the U. S. government has tak

It is essential that you vaccinate
your hogs because it means dollars to
you. No matter if you have no chol
era in your neighborhood make it a
point to see the local veterinarian if
not experienced yourself and have
your hogs treated. The expense is
small and the protection is consider
able. Cholera may come when you
least expect it and since it kills with
such rapidity your loss may prove
disastrous. See that reliable Serum
is used and that cleanliness is exer
cised in its application. Do not ex
pect to get 100 per cent good results
unless you heed this advice. It
l»c borne in mind that serum is a
preventitive of cholera and not a
cure, hence the time to vaccinate is
before your drove has become exposed
to the disease.
Scrum plants doing an interstate
business manufacture their serum un
der government supervision. That is,
the Bureau of Animal Industry at
Washington have rigid regulations
governing the production of serum al
such plants, and to know these regu
lations are carefully followed they
maintain inspectors at these plants.
Should any serum not come up to the
prescribed test for potency which the
government requires, that lot of serum
is destroyed and means that other
serum must undergo a satisfactory
test before it can be offered for sale.

HOOVER WANTS 200,000
TO SAVE FOOD
HERBERT C. HOOVER
Europe must be fed In our own defense:
"An army 111-fed can not fight; people ill-nourished can not maintain
their armies; if the women and children cry for bread the soldiers lose heart.
If the bread line is lowered, the battle line breaks.”
Cnder the Food Administration, all that is known of stocks of food and
requirements Is being compiled; all that is known of food values and equiva
lents is being compared.
You are asked now to sign the food pledge. You will be told what to do
as conditions change. One potato Instead of a slice of bread Is so many mil
lion bushels of wheat a year, a corn muffin at breakfast instead of a piece of
toast is so many million bushels more. National quotas of sugar and butter
are likewise told by the teaspoonful.
The Test of Democracy in this struggle Is “to make the world safe for
democracy," to prove democracy safe for the world,” “to make sure, that
government of the people by the people for the people shall not perish,” the
cause will be won on the battle line and the bread line.
Autocracy sets up the food dictator, doles out rations. Issues decrees and
bread cards. Democracy exalts self-control. Invites cooperation, sends out
Information and advice. Autocracy may be more efficient: democracy Is
To fail in provisioning our allies would be abandonment of the first line
of defense. To fail In unity of purpose would be the undoing of America.
To fail In self control would be betrayal of democracy Food will win the

SIGN THIS CARD WHEN CALLED ON TO DO SO.
Pledge Card for United States Food Administration.
