will pay for time and expenses of
anyone not satisfied with what

wonderful sight and the develop

cannot fail to be helpful. Over
1000 varieties of wheat are there
and the breeding of hybrids is
plain to all Wheat sown on
ground plowed in April, in May
and in June is ahown side by side
to demonstrate what a difference
there can be in plowing. Then
the alfalfa and field peas and
hundreds or other grains are
very interesting. Wasco sent
40 auto loads to the Station on
Wasco Day and they Bay we can
not bring so many from Gilliam.
Let us show them that we can
take at least 60 cars and don't
forget to take your dinner along.
We can get great good from the
trip and enjoy it as a picnic.
A great deal of credit Is due W. D.

"Can the Cockerels"
By J. O. Hawklna
as part or the government s cam
paign for increasing production and the
conservation of foodstuff, all poultry
raiser are asked to co-operate in pro
d-icing infertile egga. To thla end this
week hss been designated aa "Can the
Cockerel" week and all poultry raisers
and farmers are asked to comply with
the following recommendations:
1. All aurplus cockerels, culls and un
desirable adult males should be disposed
of by sale or by use on the home table
or by canning for future consumption.
Young cockerels should be disposed of
as soon as they reach marketable size,
from 1 1-2 to 2 1-2 pounds.
2. Males to be retained aa breeders
should be separated from females aa
soon as possible and kept in aeparate
quarter until again needed aa breeders.
It I estimated by the Department of
Agriculture that It costs the egg pro
ducer of this country fully fifteen mil
lion dollars (practically Oregon's quota
in the Third Liberty Loan) every year
because of the neglect to produce in
fertile eggs. In addition, every male
bird carried through the year coets
three dollars to feed without return in
any form. On farms having only ordi
nary stock it is highly desirable to dis
pose of adult males at once except
those proved to be good breeders and
theae should be separated from the
laying stock. Much better fertility
will result next spring.
The Home Demonstration Agent are
preparing instructions and recipes for
home canning of poultry which will ap
pear in this paper or may be secured
from the O. A. College. It should be
remembered that every male bird sold
or disposed of conserves the grain sup
ply and also results in better produc
tion of bettor eggs.
