Sanitary Board Veterinarian Explains Imports from Hatcheries Regulations for By W. W. MAURITSON County Agent The following article was written and sent to us by Dr. James J. Hurry, field veterinarian, Livestock Sanitary Board, Helena. Because prevention of diseases is such an important phase of poultry production, we suggest you read it carefully. We have the current list of hatcheries who do have permits here at the county extension office. With the start of the new year, many poultry, raisers will be or- ordering chicks poults, and hatch- Ing eggs from out-of-state hatcheries. Each year these imports have Increased in number and their distribution has been widespread in Montana. In an effort -to keep pace with this growing industry and the potential increase of fowl diseases which results from indiscriminate and unsupervised imports, the Livestock Sanitary Board has promulgated certain requirements and regulations governing these Imports to prevent diseased poultry from entering Montana. It is the purpose of this article to caution prospective poultry buyers in their selection of out- of-state hatcheries, and to explain briefly the reason for these regulations. At the present time, out-of- *tate hatcheries must obtain sea- In breeding season each year, approximately 1,500,000 fur seals jam the lonely dots of land in five treeless, fogbound islands of the Bering Sea. the Prlbilofs.

To obtain the.sc permits, these hatcheries must be free of certain poultry diseases, specially pulloriinr disease and fowl typhoid. At the present time there are over 3,000 hatcheries in the "United States which are pullorum-lyphoid clean and meet Montana requirements for obtaining shipping permits. The presence of pullorum disease and fowl typhoid in flocks throughout the United States has been, and still is, a serious problem to the poultry producer, and in many cases has resulted in the loss of 20 per cent to 90 per cent of flocks where acute outbreaks have occurred. As these diseases are transmitted to baby chicks and poults through the presence of the causative organisms (Salmonella pullorum and Salmonella Galiuarum) Jn the eggs of infected birds, great care must be taken to assure that these diseases do not exist in breeding focks, if we are to prevent their spread. Extensive testing, control and eradication procedures have been undertaken nationally to remove these diseases from breeding flocks, and for many years Montana flock owners and hatchery- men have cooperated in this program. At the present time, all hatcheries in Montana are pull- orum-typhoid clean. In accordance with these efforts, and as a protection to the Montana poultry industry, these import restrictions have been created. It is urged that persons expecting to purchase out - of - state chicks, poults, or hatching eggs learn which hatcheries are per- Thompson Falls Resident Creates New Strip mitted to supply those products to Montana. If prospective buyers order only from these hatcheries, it will not necessitate the ret urn. of unqualified, shipments and the resulting delay and inconvenience to the Montana purchasers. A complete listing of out-of-state hatcheries i s s u e d Montana shipping permits has been supplied to all county agents and veterinarians in Montana, and to mofst of the wholesale and retail distributors located within the state. By ORVILLE W. McCARVER County Agent-at-Large It is impossible to give accurate dates for the best time to plant a garden. Since plants vary in frost tolerance, we can group certain vegetables accordingly. This information may be used as a guide in planting your garden. Some plants are hardy and .can be planted as soon as the ground can be worked. They are radishes, onion seeds and sets, lettuce, spinach, kale, turnips, and mustard; cabbage plants may be set out at ttiis time if they are conditioned to cold weather. The next group can stand light frosts. They are beets, carrots, parsnips, celery, lettuce transplants, chard and peas. The third group includes beans, sweet corn, squash, melons, cucumbers, okra, tomato plants, egg plants, and peppers. These'vege- tables should not be planted Until the weather has warmed up considerably and at least 10 days past the last average frost date in your area. The last average frost date for Kalispell is May 5 and for Missoula, May 18. BY K. A.

Kitten Kaye." it is scheduled to start publication May 6. | a Forest Service lookout during As the title suggests, the m a i n ' l h c summcr - Intrigued by its atmosphere, its ways of life and its people, she remains in Montana. In the days that follow, according to her creator, "this young girl finds love, adventure and some heartaches." Beroth now has agents working the southeastern United States and along the Atlantic seaboard contacting editors for their reactions to the strip and to see what changes are desired and needed. Beroth will cover the west coast personally. The first contract made was with a large newspaper in the East. The editor offered to purchase the exclusive publication rights for his state. A chain of three dalles also desired the strip in the same slate. The first newspaper offered the strip in the Pacific Northwest, eagerly contracted for the strip also. The editor of the latter paper, commented, "I like 'Kitten Kaye' very much," and said Beroth should have no ficulty selling it. In writing and drawing Kitten Kaye, Beroth draws on more than 22 years of art work on comic strips. From 1933 to 1952 he drew the comic strip, "Don Winslow of the Navy," first for Bell Syndicate and later for General Features Syndicate. Winslow was syndicated in 225 daily newspapers. It was also the subject for a "soap opera" on a national radio network and was the basis for two movies shown all over the world. Prior to starting Winslovv, Beroth wrote and drew an advertising strip, "Tom, Dick and Harry," for two years for Bonnet and and dif- PUT IT IN CLASSIFIED AND WATCH IT SELL Beroth and his Thompson Falls wife moved to In September, 1944. Here he continued to draw his home for eight more years. For the past four years he has free lanced, painting water color landscapes and exhibiting his work, which has found a popular demand among 'Pacific Northwest residents. He .also has had about 20 commissions from "Ford Times," a monthly travel magazine published by the Ford Motor Co., to paint water colors of Montana and Idaho scenes and places. The magazine reproduced his paintings in -full color. "Now, I've got a yen to get back into cartooning," explained Beroth. There is a correlary between the Beroths' lives and Bliss Kaye. The Berolhs moved to Thompson Falls because they liked the West ;o much -- just as Kitten Kaye decides to remain in Montana. Residents of Sanders County will recognize many scenes in the new strip. For instance, the Forest Service lookout where Miss Kaye spends her summer is the one on Clark Peak, visible to all residents of Thompson Falls. Later In her adventures, Beroth plans to have his comic strip protege visit Flathead Lake and Glacier National Park. Beroth said "Kitten Kaye" will be copyrighted and is being offered to newspapers through the Beroth Features Service, of which the artist is president. Its home office is in Thompson Falls.
