FRIDAY, MARCH 25, BLYTHEVK.LF *ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Cattle Breeding Idea Near Reality Unborn Calf of Top Grade Cow Moved to Womb of a 'Scrub' By Cal Brumle,, SAN ANTONIO. Tex., March 25. Wi — A breeding experiment In which scrub cows would produce high quality calv&s was reported today (o be approaching the practical stage. Tlie process consists of transplantins: the unborn calf of a high grade cow to the womb of a scrub The purpose is to produce more nu'iU and more milk per animal on the same amount of feed at a saving of time. The method Is termed ova (egg) transplantation by its originators. Ray Unibaugli, a bustling 28-year- old scientist, is developing the process at the Fjundation of Applied Research here. The project has been in the research stage seven years. In the process, Umbangli explained, an egg from a fine quality COM is fertilized by artificial insemination. After fertilization the egg It taken from the fine animal nnc placed in (he uterus of the common cow. Artificial Insemination, which the last few years has become widely used in animal breeding, consists of mechanical transfer of the sperm of thoroughbred sires to the wombs of the mothers. J Umbaiigh said an expected advantage of his process would be the fr--cins of the quality mother from the dullness of a nine-month pregnancy, making her available to produce more eggs. The host cow would serve as an incubator and the call would have the qualities of lU fine parents, TJmbaugh stated. Umbaiigh transplants the icrtn- izert egg by cither of two methods One is surgical and the other large lv is mechanical. " The surgical method so iar has been the most satisfactory. He cuts through to the fallopian tubes OJ the donor cow. He removes the fertilized egg and places it m the tubes ol the scrub cow by a similar operation. The lallopian tubes arc ducts n-hlcli lead from the ovaries to the uterus. T-'.c fine cow is free to produce more eggs. Umbaugh said the average cow can produce 23 eggs a month. He has been successful in transplanting the egg and starting its growth in the host cow. A-s yet he has been unable to get the host mother to carry the. transplanted calf long enough for a normal birth Cattle improvement has always been a slow process of mating individual cows with better bulls. In this way the resulting offspring carried good traits from the father, but also possessed poor traits of the mother. Another generation was required to make another improvement. Many range authorities believe the United States has reached the limit of its pasturage for meat production, that there is not enough leed for more cattle. The alternate solution is a rapid Improvement of the breed. Umbangh believes that within two years his experiments will be a. practical process on farms and ranches. Incumbent Board To Hold Election In Crittenden Co. WEST MEMPHIS, Aik, March 25. l/Pi—Tlie new board of eleclion commissioners In Crittenden County gave way to the Incumbent board yosterdny and announced It would take no part in the municipal clfcctlon-s April 5, This decision did away with confusing tie-up, which could have !ound both Ixmrds trying to conduct elections.

The act calls lor the board to be composed of county chairmen of executive committees of both parties and another person. Edward Waller, county Rcpubll can chairman, said yesterday that | lie and Cooper hart agreed not to claim Jurisdiction in the April 5 Flections. They did this, Cooper said, "rather than i^e. the county lied up in a law suit which could drag on for a year or two." James Hale of Marion, county Democratic chairman, said he wouldn't cluj-.n jurisdiction "because I've never thought we had Inrisdlctlon in the [irst place" Cooper's appointment brought ;ibout the confusion. The incumbent board, appointed to serve until 1950, had not been abolished. Livestock Zourt, Lawyers, Accused, Witnesses, Spectators All Agree 'Twos Aggravating DETROIT, March 25.
