"Raise a calf' has been adopted as a slogan by the animal husbandry de prtraent of the Mtehipan Agricultural College to boost beef production in Michigan. The department declares that if every farmer possessing 50 acres of land or. over raises and fat tens but one additional animal, the move will in 1918 increase the state's dressed meat supply by at least 62,- 000.000 nounds for shipment out side, or will provide 21 pounds more per year for every individual wmun the state. "Many farmers," the statement adds, "have been slaughtering their ealves, but the raising of one animal would place a burden on none. Dairy farmers should keep their . male calves. The animals can be raised and fattened on a 50-acre farm with out the cost of feeding ever being felt. "The sten would go a long way to wards enabling the state to enlarge its food supply."

This Is the unex nggernted, perfectly natural, unposed portrait of one of the L-KO players, who furnish the laughs twice a week or the Universal proj,Tam. "Franklin II. Voss" Is what his par ents fancied for his name, but he wasn't three years old before the Fatty Vots, L-KO Comedian. Franklin II. lapsed Into Innocuous des uetude, and the far more descriptive and picturesque "Fatty" was substi tuted. Fatty he has been ever since, only more so. Age Las done anything but wither his noble proportions, and from year to year his bulk Increases to keep pace with his fame. Franklin II. has a real biography, of course, Just like everybody else. It reads: Born, Chicago, 1890, educated there; stage career, with Shuborts.

He is starred in the L-KO Komedy, "Fatty's Feature Fillum," which he directed himself. When you see it you will realize that however much fat there may bo about his body there is absolutely no trace of It In Jils brain.
