Proper Housing Of Chickens Aids Egg Production Proper housing Is one of the chief drawbacks to winter egg production In North Mississippi County, Home. Demonstration Agent Gertrude B. Holiman has advised /armers. Housing birds comfortably docs not necessarily mean an expensive structure, but birds nuist be relatively warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Therefore, the chief function of a poultry house Is to protect the Wrds from the extremes In weather. Prom a cost standpoint comfortable poultry houses cost from as Itttle as five cents per square foot to as high as five dollars per square foot. The difference, of course, Is in the kind of materiol used and the cost ol construction. During the winter of 1948 and 1949, however, the farmer with this cheaply constructed house obtained as good results in eggs laid, freedom from disease and low mortality as the one wllh the more expensive house. Tlje home demonstration agent recommended that a laying house be at- least 20 feet from front to back, and as deep as 40 feet gives even ~ belter results. The hou: should face south or east, and should have an opening from two to three feet wide the entire length of the house. In extremely cold weather all ventilators should be closed tightly except the front. In some Instances it may lie necessary to close a portion of the front of the house with .sacks or similar material. A ceiling of Insulation boards or straw loft will do more to keep the house warm In winter and cool summer thun ntiy oilier I'.ilng. For tile convenience of the operator, the ceiling shoi'ld be from six and one- half to seven feet from the floor. .A good poultry house will soon pay for itself with increased egg production and quality eggs, Mrs Signs In Sky are Worthless As Crop Guides, Farmers Told , N.

Farmers down the centuries have gazed at the hcaveiu and wondered. These mortals in due time have come to bestow upon the stars, the moon and the sun great powers over the planting and harvesting of crops Ignorant of the nature of things, hey have cloaked these heavenly bodies and the signs of the Zodiac irith mysterious and awesome qual- iles which in fmth do not exist. The folly of thus practice is shovn up clearly by scientific fact, One of the nation's best aulViorl- :ieo on (his clouded issue is Dr. Roy X.

Hail l.eaUimnte Beginning "Although the heavens provide no crystal balls for farmers," dc- elaven the genial sky gazer, "the whole business did begin in legitimate fashion.' 1 Ds. Marshall explained that several thousand years ago there were no calendars, and even a few hundred years ago they Irgely were useless becuse most people couldn't read. • "Primitive peopl&s seeking a measure for passing time latched on to the moon." he said. "They had soon discovered that this sky lantern went through aboht 12 complete phases between planting seasons." The moon thereupon became the calendar for the ancients—not because it influenced crops but berause it marked the planting seasons. Ignorant of this Innocent origin, however, farmers In succeeding centuries endowed the moon witli powers unfounded by fact. Many for example, allege that the moon this reason, the yplant leaf crops Ihc leaves: Conversely, root cropj are planted during 'the dark of the moon so (lie roots won't be pulled up. "In truth." Dr. Marshall' said, "a farmer walking through his fields has more pulling effect on his crops than does the moon. Besides, me moon Is up there in the sky even during the dark of the moon. You just can't see it, that's all." The director decried the hocvis- poeus about "wet" and "dry" moons. The mcon always follows the same path every year, he explained. In September, (lie crescent lies on • end, supposedly v,-aler. Actually, pouring out the September—after August—is the raincst month of the Nevertheless, everyone knows has great magnetic qualities.
