THE I.UnnOCK AVALANCHE. THF5DAY. APRIL tft, 1922
A SCHOOL OF GRAIN GRADING WILL BE CONDUCTED AT COLLEGE STATION JUNE 1 2 TO JULY 22, '22 Beginning June 12 ami ending July 22, 1922, the Agricultural and Mechanical Colli-" of Texas will conduct at College Station, Texas, a School of Grain (Jrading for the purpose of giving detailed itiHtruc tion In the nmttiT of grading gram according to the Federal Standards. These standards have been provided for by the recent (Irnin Standards Act which was approved by Con fres August 11, l'Jlfi. The purpose cf thia art in to provide for a sin-fc-le. set of standard of quality and condition for the various grains, and to provide for their uniform application to the shipment of rrain by (Trade in interstate and foreign commerce. The act specif ically prohibits the use of any erther trades whatsoever for any (Tain which comes under its re quirements. To enforce the provisions of this aet and to supervise the inspection f Brain, in order that the Federal grades may be uniformly anil prop erly applied, a Federal Grain Su pervision service has been created In the Bureau of Markets of the United States Department of Agri culture. In carrying out the pro visions of this service the actual inspection and grading of (rrain is done by inspectors licensed for that purpose. In Texas these inspectors are licensed by Honorable Cha. K. Ifaughmun, State (Commissioner of Markets and Warehouses. In order to secure such a license it is neces sary thut the applicant first pass a satisfactory examination before a State Hoard of examiners for grain graders, which board has been ap pointed by the Commissioner of Starkcts and Warehouses of the State of Texas. This examination is held in accordance with the Fed eral Grain Standards Act and the like standards of the Markets and Warehouse Department of the State of Texas. It is the plan of the De partment of Markets and Ware houses to have a large number of people in the grain growing belt of thia State prepare themselves for Money to Loan ON FARMS AND RANCHES Five, Seven and Ten Years at Eight per cent interest. We offer good service anl immediate action on all loans.

The person ml of the Slate Hoard of Kxiimin ers is as follows: Mr. John F. Ross, Amnrillo, Tex us, Chairman. Mr. It. R. Travis, Ralls, Texas. Mr. K. V. Crowdir, yuanah, Tex as. Again, the use of the Federal standards in the grain markets has stimulated a desire among grain farmers and grain dealers to gain a knowledge of the methods of ap plying the standards. This knowl edge will enable the farmer to know, when his grain is being grad ed at the country mill or elevator, that it is being done properly. These facts, together with the generally increased interests in the last few years is marketing of farm prod ucts, has greatly increased the de mands made on the agricultural colleges for information on the ma'ket grading of grains. Licensed Inspector Employed The work of the 1922 Grain Grading School will be under the direct supervision of Mr. William Cunning, a licensed grain grader of many years experience. Mr. Cun ning has been connected with the Federal Grain Supervision service practically all of the time since the passage of the L'nitcd States Grain Standards Act in lUlti. During the irreater part of this time he has been stationed at different points in the Southwest where lie has han dled a large volume of commercial pram, shipped both into and out of Texas. lie is. therefore, unite familiar with grain grading prob lems ufl'ecting the State of Texas. Nature of Work Miltionts tnkint' the Work of the Grain Gi.-i.lrig School will cover, in detail, the grading of wheat, i corn (both in the ear and -helled), oats, rice, ami the gram sorghui;i (both in the head and the thtcsiio.l (.'taint. N" Federal standards have been established for the gvnin sorcluims. However, the State Commissioner of Markets and Ware houses has recently established ' standards for the grading of grain ' sorphnniM, atid the work of this I school, relative to grain sorghums, will be given in accordance with I the standards fixed by the Com missioner of Markets bouses.

The latter part of the lecture course is devoted to a dis cussion of the bases upon vhich the grain grades are established. Laboratory Practice The greater part of the time will he devoted to practice work in grain grading. A large number of samples of the different grains are obtained from various sources, such as the local experiment station, feed stores, and farmers of the State, snd assigned to the students. The first laboratory period is used in demonstrating the use of the grain probe in obtaining samples, the ap paratus osed in grading, and in dis cussing various phases of th" dif ferent operations. In the following laboratory periods the stjdenM are furnished with direction sheets to be followed in grading the assigned samples, and with the use of the small handbook, "Official Grain S'andards," and type samples, the students are able to go ahead with a reasonable amount of help from the instructor. The (rrain grading laboratory is equipped with all of the modern apparatus needed filial rain grading. Eiprnin The expenses for the course are as follows: I.adoratory fee . .

What the tbiiks need l more bone and mum le forming materia', more exer. iae and room. Poisoning When chkka begin to die in great number every day without any art parent cause, and they appear in good condition, their death may fre quently be traced to some form of poisoning. Some times moldy feed, or a low frrade of meat scraps will kill them in large numbers. Moldy or niuaty corn and corn meal will poison the chicks. Moldy or inu.ity litter, also causes a great mortality in baby thicks. The mold spores, get into the air and breathing sys tem of tbe chick, developing into so-called "aspergillosis." We know of no cure. The only cham e is in removing the cause. Any feel, that is not pure, fresh and wholesome, should not be feed to tho little chi. ks. Their digeirtive system is very delicate and easily up set. Non-Absorption of The Yolk F.xitniing the digestive system of a chitk carefully you will find the yolk to be attached directly to the intestines l y a small dm t or tube. Any thing that you do to retard the proper assimilation of the yolk, will most certainly kill thu chick. The yolk should be ccmpletelf ab sorbed by the tenth day. If the yolk is not absorbed properly at a sertain time, It turns poisonous and when finally gome of it does get into the digestive system it kills the thicks. We have frequently noticed baby chicks ten d iy old, to show by their larg abdomens, that they have not absorbed the yolks properly, and although they may appear apparently healthy at the time; it will only be a question of time before the chitk will die. We have had them to hang on un til thty weie three weeks old. and then die of "non-absx.rption of the y lk." Whenever you can notice the abdomens to appear out of pro portion with the rrt cf the body, it Is time to look f r nmr'alit dje to Improper a-sinnlst nn of the yolk. Ibis trouble kills fmh rear thoii-ands of brooder isised chicks. 1 hi ir Is no remedy.

When it is caused in chu ks, be fore they are to be fed, we reconv mend darkening the brooder in tbe day time to cbeek this bad habit. Remove the chirks with sore to- or eyes.

Anything you can do to build up tbe health and vitality of the chitk will help yoj control this disease. Copyright, 19i!2 by F. W.
