TUKSDAY, MARCH 13, 1915 BLYTI1KVILLE COURIER NEWS Lawmakers Hear Mrs. Roosevelt First Lady Discusses Rehabilitation Heeds Of Returning Vets HALEIGH, N. C., Mar. 13 (UP) — Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt addressed a special joint session of the North Carolina General Assembly yesterday nftcrnoon. And approximately 800 people, who crowded the Ixwcr House, were in for a surprise. For the First Lr,dy siitetlluti'd the usual brief formalities with a constructive discasslon on America's concern and obligation to returning veterans. Among the obligations she stress- j cd were for a wholehearted COOD- crntiou by each community throughout (lie country to prepare for the homecoming GIs. She says they should be given every educational opportunity. According to Mrs. Roosevelt, one of the biggest problems will be rehabilitation. Not on the purt of the serviceman, but on the part of Ihe civilian. We nmsl treat them as men who will some day be leaders in their community, she saiit. She added that, following the last war ninny .solders found themselves out, of a hospital and inlo a veteran's home. "Tills time the boys must set (lie best possible rehabilitation cere in hospitals so they can fight whatever battles they must in their own community, not in the confines of a veteran's home." And she urges thai each community make it its concern to see thai the GI Bill of Rights means something to each soldier. "The GI Bill won't do it by just being there.'' she said. Another obligation of civilians she mentioned was tiie beforehand training of soldiers quickly planned and employment opportunities for tills education. Mrs. Roosevelt pointed up her address \vilh a mnrnl she learned while overseas. During one of her visits to a hospital on an island in the Pacific she asked one of the patients v.'hat he was in for. 'flic young boy replied, "O. for something thai, should have been done yenr.s ago, instead of now, when I have to go out and.die."

Lnxora Society—Personal New Hampshire icks Popular Characteristics Give This Type Preference By Broiler Growers The New Jlampshirc breed of chicken is rapidly becoming popular (or broiler production In Arkansas, reports u. M. Smith of Ihc University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. The apparent reason for the growth in |!opularl(y is the fact that the customary price discrimination against chickens other than (hose with yellow shanks and white or barred plumage has n6t been in force during wartime marketing. Also, the recognized characteristic of this breed for rapid growth makes it desirable for broiler production. The growth In popularity of the New Hampshire for broiler production has been the origin of numerous reqnc-ts for information from Ihe College on the economy of gains of this breed, as compared to established breeds, such us the Barred Plymouth Hock and White Wyandottc. Feeding trials conducted by the associate aninu\\ husbandman 'serve to Illustriiif (he rapid growth rale and economy of gain that may bii expected from (lie New Hampshire breed. These feeding trials were made with groups of 100 chicks each. All groups ueiu managed uniformly over a 12-wcck period, liesults liow u significant difference I" weight, nl 12 weeks between Iho Haired Plymouth Hock and the New Hampshire, and between 'Ihe Unired Plymouth liock mid the- hybrids of cither cross. Results from the hybrid groups were approximately the smile. On the basis of Irlnls, lac Increased interest In the Now Hampshire breed for broiler production from the standpoint of economical grnin is well founded under nix'scnl marketing conditions in which plumage color docs not Influence prlw. The umi«i Plymouth Hock male crossed with New Hampshire female hybrids are nil barred, mill arc regularly accepted on the live poultry markets ns "Plymouth Rock" chickens. In the reciprocal crass Iho males are barred but the females are blnck both in plumage and simnk color. The continued popularity of chickens having other [linn yellow shanks nnd white or barred plumage, Smith said, depends primarily upon the extent to which prewar market price dis- ci linliuilIon against classes becomes effective »s n marketing regulation.
