Gloomy
For Reliefers
charged that high engineers of
WPA were not operating a relief
program, as Congress intended.
Standards of physical fitness, it
was said, have been made higher
for WPA than for private indus
try. One speaker declared that
WPA officials have been stung by
the shovel leaning jokes and have
forgotten that relief for the needy
is the reason for WPA. Unless
WPA engineers come to an under
standing of the social program,
said the speaker, Congress will
soon decide to throw the whole
WPA structure aside.

It Pays to Advertise
Apple Is Popular
“Certain it is the apple has, on the
whole, no rival among fruits. There
are fruits of more pronounced and
even of more delicious Savors.
There are fruits which present a
high proportion of nutriment. But
in variety of color and Savor, in sat
isfying qualities, in ability to hold
its place as a fruit staple against all
comers, no other fruit equals the
apple.”—National Apple Institute.
Lights for Poultry Houses
Once a mining post, Fort Yukon is
now chiefly noted for its fur trade.
Like other towns of Alaska, its chief
problem used to be its chickens,
for those canny birds tried to take
advantage of their sunlit nights and
to work and scratch around the
clock. Distraught by their worthy
efforts, they lost weight and would
not lay, until Alaska solved the prob
lem by providing them with artifi
cially darkened houses for nights.
Picking Pullets Fed Oats
The picking pullet’s desire to eat
up her sisters is easily overcome
by adding oats to her diet, says the
Washington Experiment station, in
the Country Home Magazine. Oat
hulls or oat millfeed will do the
trick. But oat hull ash or oat ash
will not cure cannibalism.
