November 12, 1938 THE OYSTER--THE TRUE SYMBOL OF GOOD EATING Water Farming or Aquieulture Dr. Lewis RadclifTc, Director, Oyster Itt-titute of North America, Washington, D. C. "Indeed it (ojstor eating) is almost a certain mark of'. For I have never nut a man o? intelligence whose eyes did not KVO\V and whose face did not take on a. -prighily smile- when a plate of oysters wa j placed before him." Previous articles have touched upon the early stages of development ot oyster farming. Leaving the discus- i sion of modern methods of oyster j cultivation for a later article, I should I like to acquaint my readers with a j brief review of the scope of water j farming 1 . In its development we a i e ; considerably behind other countries.! In the Orient the g i o w i n g of fi-h f o r . market is. an ancient industry. In the , Philippine Islands, the glowing of | pondnshes fill- an impoitant need, [ especially during the typhoon season I when no seafish aie available. Some j years ago during the typhoon season I saw the fish stalls in the markets of the City of Manila piled high day after day with a bright silvery fish-the milkfish--which had been reared in ponds close by. These ponds were then valued at more than $10,000,000 and the annual catch as $3,000,000. In the Hawaiian Islands are to bo found the celebrated mullet pondb, some of which were built more than ?00 years ago and were yielding an annual harvest of about 680,000 pounds of fish. According to tradition, the natives engaged in the construction of one of these ponds formed a line from the shore to the mountain and passed the lava rock from hand to hand until it reached the cite of the pond without once touching the ground. In southeastern China there 'arc,mistake to say you 'catch' a cold, I wii I to K (li.Minsctl cil.

Therefore, oyster morning tomes. tirely fit, phvsically, and u a d j in your pioi'ebsion, jour job, or ioi school, or household duties, wher lovers need not woi ry about our oyster farmers supplying the markets of this country for a long time to come. DON'T BE CAUGHT Prefacing some seasonable advice on common sense ways of avoiding .'colds, with the remark that it is a innumerable thousands of fish ponds chiefly devoted to the growing of carp. In this region carp culture is the complement of silkworm culture, the land being used alternately for fish ponds and mulberry plantations. Dr. R. H. Riley Director of the State Department of Health, added "As a matter of fact the cold catches you when you are not up to the mark, physically. Therefore: 5. Colds are ppicad by the dich.irg- es from the nose and tluoat. Everj time the victim of a cold has a coug' - ing spell, gei in-laden droplets of cus aie bi ought to the suiiacc an.l spiead around.

This includes over 5,000,000 pounds of carp, 8,700,- j heavy 000 pounds of oysters and other shell- come. fish and 500,000 pounds of goldfish. In Java people owning fish ponds are the wealthiest and most progressive of their neighborhood and their ponds bring the highest real estate prices of their region. Just how productive are water areas in comparison with uplands? An acre of land should prdouce about 140 pounds of beef and 300 pounds of pork. At a midwest fisheries station, the production of blue-gill sunfish was equivalent to 272 pounds per a sweater to your outfit, or n coat when the fiosty days Avoid i-uddcn chilling. Don't expose yourself unnecessarily to draughts. Don't sit around in wet clothing. If you are caught in a drenching downpour, change to dry clothing, including shoes and block- ings, as soon ns possible. 3. Take some outdoor exercise every day. Be out in the sunlight as much as pobsible. If you have a job that keeps you indoor; most of the day, you will find it pays to spend a few minutes two or three times a day, at an open window, flushing your acre and that of goldfish 450 pounds, breathing apparatus with fiesh air. The production of carp in cultivated Hold your head up, and leain to ponds is about 150 pounds and ac- breathe deeply. cording to Dr. G. C. Embody of Cor- 4. Get plenty of sleep. Have a good nell University, our richest trout streams should produce 300 pounds of trout per acre and our poorest streams about 75 pounds. Over a period of 15 years clam canners on the coast of Washington took an average of 534 pounds of clam meats per acre per year. The oyster in particular lends itself to cultivation. Unlike most edible marine animals, it is unable to move of its own volition from the beds where it has been planted. It can withstand rough handling, lends itself readily for transplanting from one area to another, even for export to foreign countries. For example, market shell oysters are shipped to Great Britain for planting in English waters, where they are taken up and marketed during the summer and fall when the native oysters cannot .be marketed. Not only that, but as an illustration of American efficiency, this stock as landed sells for only .about Ic apiece or 1-10 the price of .their native oysters. The next time you hear someone complaining about the prices of our native stock, you might remind them of this. In fact, at current prices in this country oysters are a very economical food as well as a very healthful one. Oysters occur on about 1,000,000 acres of under-water bottoms along our coasts. Of these only about 200,000 acres are under private cultivation. When one considers that the 20 per cent of oyster grounds under cultivation produce about 60 per cent of our annual crop, it should be evident as the demand for oysters increases, the bringing of more acres under cultivation will make possible a much time but don t have it too strenuously. Strike a balance between work and play. Don't fool youisclf into thinking you can play around at all hours of the day or nigl't, day after day; snatch a few hours sleep, and be en- transmitter.
