ASK EVERY FARMER
TO RAISE A CALF
East Lansing, Mich., May 4.
"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
"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
"The sten would go a long way to
wards enabling the state to enlarge
its food supply."
Parents Guests At School.
Friday afternoon the parents' and
teachers' meeting was held in tnc
Bryant school with about 350 guests
present. The meeting was by far the
most successful of its kind ever held
in the city. Miss Violet Crane and
her corps of teachers had arranged
an excellent program, edifying to
both teachers and parents.
Mrs. Anna Hurrell Bilhimer, form
erly a teacher in the local schools,
gave a talk on "Cleanliness." Mrs.
L. L. Conn spoke on "Children's
Rights," and Mrs.M. Bartholomew
and Mrs. Arthur Letts gave an inter
esting discussion of the latter talk.
Mrs. A. A. Sherman spoke on "Love
of Children,',' and Mrs. N. R. Walsh
gave a fine talk on "The Patriotic
Mother." Mrs. P. S. Wilson sang
two pleasing vocal solos and Lester
Whitehead rendered a piano solo.
The children from the second and
fifth grades sang school songs.
The Bryant school teachers have
done excellent work the past year in
bringing the teachers and mothers
into closer relationship and better
mutual understanding. The health,
standard has been raised and the
moral and intellectual welfare of
the pupils has been served.
