ARKANSAS Poultry Flock Can Pay Profit Production Methods Should Be Efficient, Expert TeJIs Growers The poultry outlook Is not loo bright at Ihe present time, but any business has Us points, Lawrence liljfh and lov; Morris of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, pointed out this week hi advising Arkansas poultry producers lo plan now for next year's laying Hock. Over a- span of years, (he Extension poullryinnn said, poultry always returned a profit, and continued production Is important be- cattsc poultry and eggs arc vital food materials needed by the arm ed forces. Poultry producers who have raised chickens in the pnsl should continue this practice, paying special attention to economy of production: Producers who buy chicles should get good chicks and get them us soon as possible, he advised. I.atc hatched chicks, or those hatched In May an ( | June Iny fewer eggs and make less protit limn chicks hatched before May 1. Morris stressed the point that all producers should limit their laying flock to the number of liens for which housing space is available. One hundred good hens properly housed nml cared for, lie explained will add more to the war effort than 200 poorly managed birds. Another good management practice ,he said, is the provision of green pasture for the poultry Hock. Old contaminated range, he warned, is a constant source of disease and parasite infection, while green feed not only aids in developing .strong healthy pullets, but reduces the feed cost from 15 to 40 per cent.

Oardeijt-K wlio have been delayed i beylnnini; their planting activities, according to Miss Coleman should get the following crops in Ihe ground at once: carrots, beds, K"lc, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard, onions, liiiKlish peas, spinach, Swiss ilwd, lurnlps, and cabbage. Sec-oiul plantings of some of the early cool weather crops Including uicllshes, lettuce, and mustard, can ilso be made nnw, she said. Gardeners planning to plant Imsh or pule snap beans were advised Dial .plantings of either may uc now if the .soil In the lias warmed up thoroughly. PointhiH out tbat while pole beam produce more heavily tliaii hush wans, Miss Coleman said that some gardeners believe the hush bean tains, may lie planUid alons tile fence to provide support for Hie vinos.

Sivcct corn, the niscnt, advised, is very easily injured bv frost but can probably be safely planle'd cluriiitf the last few days of March or the , first of April. The crop, however '.should be planted as .early as possible, she added, since hot dry weulher at Inn-vest lime will materially reduce yields. Also, the com •car worm is a pest thai affects later nintiii'iug com much more seriously than early corn.
