THURSDAY, JUNE 23, 1960 Better Pork At Less Cost Is Forecast IOWA CITY, Iowa (Science Service )-Moro and better ham, bacon and pork chops tor less money are Indeed possible, a swine nutritionist at the State University of Iowa here reports. If the 100,000,000 pigs that will be born in the U.S. this year could be fed Just 10 percent more feed of the proper kind during the first eight weeks of life, says Dr. Damon V. Catron, il would mean an eight to 10 percent increase in weight, a three to five percent improve- .ment in feed efficiency, and a two to four percent increase in final carcass leanness. It would also bring about a 10 percent decrease in incidence of pig scours, a five percent reduction In baby pig mortality, a 10 percent reduction in runts, and a one to three percent savings in days of labor and "ownership risk" in hog production, he says. To arrive at these desired results, the feeding habits of the baby pig are undergoing exhaustive scientific examination at the University. Dr. Catron is conducting studies involving the taste, odor, flavor and palatability of feeds as well as the appetite and hunger of piglets, the influence of genetics, sow milk production, hormonal output and psychological factors. His studies have revealed the following: 1. Baby pigs eat more In the daytime than at night, even under artificial Illumination.., 2. The presence of people affects piglets' eating habits by making them nervous and more active. 3. Pigs have a tendency to| eat and sleep together, although they have individual preferences regarding eating, drinking and sleeping habits. Test Rocket For Moving Satellites WASHINGTON, By Science i Service — A miniature rocket designed to maneuver satellites about in space has successfully operated lor 47 hours in a test reported to the U.S. Air Force, which supported the testing program. No bigger that a milk bottle, the power plant weighs only three and a half pounds, without fuel. It is an arc Jet engine. It gets its thrust from a gas (hydrogen or helium) that is heated by passing it through an electrostatic field. The heated gas expands and hurtles out the rocket's nozzle. The experimental rocket tested used helium as a working fluid and was operated in a near vacuum for 47 hours. The) total velocity increase that the rocket could have given a vehicle in space was about 4,000 feet per second. It could do this because a satellite balanced in orbit can be shifted by relatively small amounts of continuous power over a period of hours or even days. (The movement of a vehicle after it is lifted into space is very different from lifting it from ground into space. This requires great thrust for a few minutes.) A nuclear source or solar batteries could provide the arc engine ,with electricity. A tank of liquid hydrogen or helium would be required to supply fuel. Thus, though the engine itself is light, fuel for months of operation would weigh many hundreds of pounds. Tests were made by the new rocket's developer, Avco's Research and Advanced Develop, ment Division of Wilmington, Mass. During the tests, the engine produced nearly three-fourths of a pound of thrust at specific impulse of 1,000 seconds with a power input of 30 kilowatts. Specific impulse is the rocket engineer's equivalent of miles, per-gallon. Specific impulses of about 250 seconds are about the current average. Romance and Mothes BOSTON JP— Foresters are j hopeful that a couple of un-' romantic sclents will help rid, trees of the gypsy moth pest, i How are they' going about it?! By meddling with the love-life of j this persistent pest, which causes! millions of dollars damage to 1 crops and trees yearly, accord- j ing to the Forestry Digest. ' Dr. Martin Jacobson, e n t o- mology research division, and Dr B- H. Alexander, agricultural research division, U.S. Department of Agriculture, are' working on the problem of producing a synthetic substance closely resembling a secretion | by which female gypsy moths • lure the males. • U they succeed, the research' era say. the synthetic compound ; could he used to lure male moths ; during the mating season to ar' ea» where they can be attacked with insecticides. $ Telegraph want Ads "dick."
