With wool selling around 75 utnts sad mutton Irom ID cents to 20 c.entj a pound, the sheep business looks at ti active Coupled wits, this i» the lict that the business is a lunda raeatal one supplying two elemental necessities xoua and clothing it is surprising hov. few peoplo realize the importance ot isheep and the place they play m oui national welfaie Another important point is the fact that the sheep makes more production jn irooi ard mutton on hay and grass than any other class ot farm animals In other words thev more nearl meet the present economic requirement which will make a maximum pioduc tion on grass and loughage with a minimum requirement o£ grain While the situation from the gro«- ers-_sla5dpoint is encounagtng It is thfrVever^e from the consumers side We are faced v,itli a diminishing \\oild p-oduction as much as oO per cent per capita tince 1900 Second, the fact that our fiee ranges and ne« lands .are practical!) all taken up and are being redueed instead of enlarged as in the past So that with, the world shortage and no place ior expansion In new territory It appeals certain that the sheep must be re stored again in small flocks on our lills and \alleys of our eastern lands This restoration will bring m manj pioblems both to the present bheep breeders and to those intend ng to enter the business At the annual meeting o£ the Tn State Sheep Breeders and *ool Grow erst association to be held in TVOieel In*, Februan 11 and 15, consideration will be given to means whereb the prefect situation in the industry may le met To this end the program o£ the meeting was prepared witn a ^ icw to presenting material that will point the war to more and better 'beep in the east and answer the problems therewith.

It 13 not probable that all farms would be suited to ftheep, so if only 50 per cent of these mre suitable they would provide for 6000,000 additional sheep If they clip seven pounds the wool jield ·would amount to 35,000,000 pounds If th«y average 80 per cent lambs the Increase would amount to 4 000 000 manually These figures suaply serve to indicate the possibilities for c^pan ·ion through a period of years FIFTY MEN ORDERED TO REPORT SATURDAY IN DISTRICT NO. 5 Registrants flfll be Put Through lilgid Physical Examination.
