Whatever Your Choice Of Breed, Be Sure You Have Meat-Type Boars Some of the Best Meat-Type Breeding Stock Is Right In This Area Choosing a meat type boar is no simple job. Yet, if is important in producing meat type hogs. So be prepared to give the matter both time and study. Just looking at a boar isn't enough. Limited feeding can make a boar look meat type. But it won't carry over into his pigs. "Look for a boar that weighs at least 200 pounds at six months," says Ralph Durham, Iowa State College swine specialist. "An oats and alfalfa ration can make a boar look leaner. But weight for age-can show up any sharp limit in feeding. "Pick a boar that is leaner than you want his offspring to be," advises Durham. "Barrows will be about 25 percent fatter than their boar brothers." If the herd shows meat type, chances of getting a real meat type boar are better. Don't expect miracles from a meat type boar. A gilt and sow selection has to go along with any meat type pr9gram. Pay more attention to sire, dam and other offspring. If related animals show meat type, boar has a better chance of siring meat type offspring. Whether you want a purebred or a cross of mixed inbred lines, you are still looking for the same characteristics. Unfortunately, meat type boars are scarce. So count on doing a lot of looking to find the one you want.

Everybody needs "time off"—even your telephone. Especially if you're on a party line, it's important to leave • brief "holiday" between phone calls —so that incoming calls can reach you; go that other people on your Ua» may use the telephone. Some other tips for good party-line service* hang up quickly and quietly whan th« line is in use, replace the receiver carefully, give up the line for emergency calls. Remember, party-line courtesy is catching. Northweatfra Bell T*i»- phon» Company. An Algona woman, one of three sisters separated since childhood, participated in a reunion of the sisters August 22, at Lynwood, Calif. The photo from the Los Angeles Examiner shows. Mrs Minnie Peterson (left), a resident of Algona for many years but living in Mankato, Minn, for the past five years, Mrs Grace Bulem (center) and Mrs Louise Cruler, as they look at old family snapshots in Mrs Bulem's home. The sisters were separated by adopteds in Iowa over 50 years ago. Mrs Peterson, 54, began looking for the rest of her family back in 1920, while a resident of Algona. The children were born at Perry, la., a family of five girls and a brother. Their father died while the children were small and their mother burned to death in a gasoline blaze at their home. Minnie was adopted by a Minnesota couple, Grace was taken by a Perry couple, and Louise went to live in Madrid, la. The other children were scattered over Iowa. The sisters had only "faint recollections" of their childhood relationships, but a letter found in an old trunk of Mrs Bulem's foster father led to a contact eventually with Minnie, and then with Louise. Mrs Peterson had been searching for her sisters since 1920, without much success, until she received the letter from Grace. Minnie may now make her home in San Pedro, the Los Angeles paper stated. The three sisters appeared on four different T-V programs on, the west coast after tht-ir reunion for the first time in 50 years.
