"If you were Ihe ene who gave poison to Avis jVmighn and Art Cleves the best (break you could have had was having it take effect when It did, and having their car plunge Into rthe canyon.

Me stood up bringing the interview to an end and waited while I gat out of my chair and tried to wrap a little dignity around my battered ego along with my coat.

Albany--A 15 per cent reduction in the number of spring litters of pigs in New York in 1948 us compared with the corresponding six months ending May 31 in 1947, is in prospect, says a federal state report issued by the York state department of agriculture and markets. The fall "crop" of 1947 was. 153,000 pigs and the spring crop of that' year was 227,000. The annual total of 380.000 in 1947 was per cent more than in 1946 and five per cent less than the 10-year (1936-45 average), Although less half of one per cent of all pigs in the United States are raised in New York, these animals have an important place on many farms in providing home grown meat supplies. They are often fed low grade or unmarketable materials that would otherwise go to waste.

The 1947 fall crop of pigs in the United States, placed at 31,352.000 head was three per cent ahead of the same period in 1946. This, added to the'spring crop of 52,788.000 gives a 1947 yearly total of 84,138,000 pigs, one per cent more Mian in 1946 and one per cent, below the 1936-4 average. Expected spring farrowing in 1948, reduced 11 per cent, would bring the pig crop during the 6- month period erding May 1 down to about 48,000,000, lowest since .1938 and sixth from lowest in 25 years The estimates of the pig crops and of many other livestock and crop acreage facts are based in large part on reports from a cross section of farms through the cooperation ot farmers and the rural mail carriers ot the Post Office Department in the two semi-annual livestock surveys and fall acreage survey.
