Big Church Fair on Easter Sunday April 20 CHURCHES TO AID VICTORY LOAN BY SERMONS ON MAY 4 It Will Be a "Thanksgiving Loan," In Recognition Of This Country's Hapiness And The Re turn Of Peace Sunday, May 4. has been designated all over the United States as Victory Loan Sunday, when every pastor of every denomination is asked to dis mas from the pulpit the Victory Loan campaign and urge upon their hearers such investments in the Victory Loan as they can undertake. It has been the observation of those prominent in former Liberty Loan campaigns that the churches have had enormous influence in furthering sub scriptions. And there is every reason why this should be so. Lending to one's country is something more than a business investment It is a patri otic obligation and surely patriotism I deep regard for one's homeland-is a form of religion. The Victory Loan is also being call ed the "Thanksgiving Loan." and sure ly it is a fitting designation. Think of the boys who have come back home, alive and well, with the enemy van. guished, the battles over! Think of peaceful America, its people prosper ous, its children happy and well nour ished, its lands safe from the inva sion of a foe; and compare our situas tUon with that of starving Russia and Poland, with Germany torn by Red revolution; with victorious France still bleeding from the scars of horrible war. Think of the heavy taxation which must for years burden the peo ple of Europe, victors and vanquished alike. And then compare our situation here-with our government asking only that we lend what we can spare, with gilt-edged security and liberal in terest Certainly, we can afford to call this a "Thanksgiving Loan, and prove our thankfulness b liberal in vestments. There is not a father who bas seen his boy come home, or who has learned that he is safe overseas, who can afford to cheat himself of his share in this-the last of the govern ment loans-which will pay the war I bill and "finish the job." CO-OPERATE IN BUILDING UP THE DAIRY HERD Bull Associations Are Means of Prs Viding Purebred Sires at Small Expense. t A farmer who owns only a few cows may not find it expedient to pur I chase a high-priced pure-bred bell; but where there are a number of such farmers in a community, ownlag cows of the same breed, often they will find it profitable to organise a' cooperative bull association and per s chase one' or more pure bred sides, say the dairy specialists of the Ez tension Division, Louisiana State University. Cooperative bull associations are formed by the farmers for the Jeont ownership, use, and exchange of pure bred bulls. The purchase price and cost of maintenance are distributed according to the number of cows owned by each, thereby giving the farmer an opportunity to build up his herd without great expense. The organization also helps its nsembers t to market dairy stock and dairy products, to fight contagious die eases'of cattle intelligently, and in other ways to assist in improving the dairy industry. The bull association does not give someting for nothing, but with an outlay of $50 or less can furnish a share in five pure bred bulls. The bulls o~oant increase the production of the dows in a herd. but they may double the production of their The Victory Liberty loan cam- e paign will open Monday, April 21, r ardr close three weeks, later, Sa.

Cottonseed meal should not be fed more than four or five weeks at any one period; but after a rest of three to five weeks the cottonessed meal can again be fed for another pe riod of tour or Ave weeks. 4. By all means set a good grade of cottonseed meal, fir interior meal may have a poisonous effect. 5. When fed to boss on grasing crops, cottonseed meal may be led In larger quantities and for longer p 1 riods than when on dry feed only. I. Cottonseed meal supplies pro` a tein cheaply and Is available at all times and at an places. 7. Cottonseed meal, forming one fourth or one-fifth of a ration, is a most ezoellent feed for hogs for the last four weeks before slaughtering. This Is especially true of nogs grased or fed on peanuts, soy beans, or other soft po poproducing feeds. S. Cottonseed meal is a splendid supplement to corn and rice polish. f.
