But that is exactly what Alfred Zellar, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Zellar of Bode did in 1945. Alfred, a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Zellar, is a member of the St. Joe Trojans 4-H club. In, the above picture he is shown with some of his turkeys. (Cut courtesy of Humboldt Independent.) Kepi Good Books Alfred kept a very accurate set of books. They showed that his total expenditures 1 , for the year wore $11,349.18'as'•compared with a return o'f $18,028.31. He, purchased 3049 poults tftfe ,lag{; .of 5 March : at l ,a cost/ of •'85a e'ach : ' He . rented*; ten brooder houses from his father, as' veil as other equipment. After ten weeks the birds "wore, moved out on-red clover pasture. • .. i Sept. 15 .he marketed his first turkeys frorri ' a total of 2,736 which'were raised to maturity. These were 1351 hens, averaging Ibs. and sold at 35c a pound. Scientific Raising Plenty of shelters, feeders and waterers were used, and Altred lays the success of his project to tho^usc of these. However, it is evident that (he also could truthfully ;lay some credit to the fact that he knew what he was dq- ing, ""studied the project carefully, and did about as modern 'a job of turkey raising as can be done. : The birds consumed an average of 400 gallons.of water a week while on "the range, and Were plenty hard on the feed barrel as his records show. Alfred was a charter member of the St. Joe club, and his record does credit to not only himself but his parents for their help and. 4-H activity \ for its development of future fanners. 16 On Honor Roll At LuVerne High LuVerne: Those on the high school honor roll toe the past six weeks are: A „ •'• Freshmeh^'JeaVJolUffe, Blythe Larson, Marilyn.
