Committee Out to Prevent Outbreaks of Hog Cholera By JUDY PRIE WASHINGTON (UPI) - A Department of Agriculture advisory committee has called for identification of all swine shipped across state lines in order to prevent outbreaks of hog cholera. Hog cholera is a highly infectious viral disease that is usually fatal to swine animals, but does not affect humans. Eradication procedures have been handled on an emergency basis since October of last year when widespread 'outbreaks threatened existing eradication programs in the Southeast and Midwest. Another outbreak occurred May 2 in a herd near Progresso, Tex., less than a half - mile from the Mexican border. Two other cases in Puerto Rico were discovered late in March. Meeting in conjunction with the annual meeting of Livestock Conservation, Inc., the 12-member USDA Hog Cholera Eradication Advisory Committee stressed the need for identifca- tion to facilitate rapid tracing of infected animals back to their herds of origin. State or federal regulations currently require that most feeder and breeder swine be in (dividually identified by ear tag, ear notch, tattoo or other mark ing if they are to be shipped across state lines. However, the regulations do not cover hogs marketed for slaughter. The committee also recommended that states be encouraged to halt the feeding of garbage to swine, after allowing time for garbage feeders to convert to another feed source. They reported a process had been developed in Georgia that converts garbage into nutritious feed supplement for poultry or livestock. During 1972, they said, over 18 per cent of hog cholera cases were caused by feeding the animals improperly cooked garbage. Nine states — Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Dakota, (Virginia and Wisconsin — now prohibit feeding any garbage or food wastes to swine. All other states require that garbage must be cooked if it is to be fed to the animals. The committee acknowledged, however, that those state laws have been difficult to enforce.

Comp Of any Solves Problem Absentee Ownership By LEROY POPE UPI Business Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - Absen tee ownership long has been recognized as a frequent cause of big business losses. R. V. Drouillard, who runs a company called Absentee Business Today Owner Management Corp. at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Fla., claims to have found an answer to the absentee ownership problem. Florida probably has more businesses with absentee owners than any other state. Rich businessmen vacationing in the Sunshine State buy prosperous businesses witli the idea of taking over their management on retirement. Other wealthy tourists just buy them for investments. Then trouble begins. Dishonesty Big Problem "The men who run these enterprises for the owners living in northern states most of the year start goofing off," dishonest managers and work- Drouillard said. "They either are not good enough managers or they get sticky fingers and skim off the profits. Dishonesty causes more problems than the lack of ability." Drouillard, a transplanted French Canadian with university business school training, founded his business after running a Chevrolet dealership and founding three independent auto rental companies in Florida. He currently provides overseeing management for 12 enterprises, including one manufacturer, who makes large fiberglass party fishing boats. The other firms are retail service businesses. "I am both the super visor and the policeman," Drouillard said. "For, sad to relate, I have nearly always found dishonesty is rife in a business with absentee owners unless someone knowledgeable is keeping clpse watch all the time." Sums Are Amazing Drouillard said the sums ers siphon out of such firms are amazing and once the dishones ty is halted it often is possible to turn such a company around in a few months. Drouillard says he can do his best jobs for firms with sales of $300,000 a year to perhaps $2 million. Firms with sales of under $100,000 a year usually can't afford such a service. "I don't manage these businesses day to day," he explained. "I put in a good professional manager and oversee him. My compensation from the owner varies according to how much time I have to put into the supervision." Drouillard said there is room for more management firms like his in Florida, considering, how many absentee-owned businesses there are in the state," but I warn anybody who tries it that it can be a sticky business. There's a lot that can be learned in it only by experience." Backyard Sale Tues., June 5 9-4 285 MICHIGAN AVE. Clothing, mlnl-blke. and misc. MOVING SALE , Mon. & Tues.
