HILL POSTVILLE, IOWA GREEN COLONIAL FURNACE SERVICE Planned Program Means More Eggs Preparing pullets for a good egg- laying season should be a planned step-by-step operation It pullets are expected to fill the egg crate on schedule this fall. That Is the advice of W. R. Whitfield, extension poultryman at Iowa State College. A "hit-or-miss" pullet management program is likely to produce a '"miss" next winter when it comes to putting eggs in the basket, he says. One of the first steps to take now is to keep pullets from mingling with old hens. This practice, he says, will alp in the bud the spread of disease and parasites. This can be done only by confining old hens, because they are likely to be carrying diseases and parasites. Laying Ration Following this step, before pullets are housed, you should get them accustomed to a laying ration made up of a breeder concentrate, whole oats and shelled corn. Changing the ration and moving pullets into a different building are a shock to the birds. Ill effects of these necessary shifts can be minimized if both changes do not come at one time, Whitfield says, As for old hens, sell them when pullets start to lay. A house full of 'pullets increasing in production will make more money than small flock of old birds on the way out of production. Adequate Space •Another step to take before housing the birds at five months of age, or when they are up to five per cent in production, is to ar range adequate space for the pullets. Whitfield says to cull pullets and count the good ones. Keep only enough good pullets to fit the space available. Whitfield also points out that gains made by having pullets free from diseases and parasites at housing time will be lost if the laying house isn't" cleaned and dis, infected thoroughly before mov ing in the pullets. Scrub the house with hot lye water, and after it has dried spray the entire interior surface with a solution of cresol or sheep spray. T. B. Association Holds District Meet If we put all, our facilities to work at their maximum, we can eradicate tuberculosis, declared Joseph H. Bishop of Des Moines, Iowa Tuberculosis and Health association executive secretary, at the Christmas seal institute held Wednesday at the New Legion Club, Decorah. We have the knowledge, the skills and the means at our disposal, he continued. Now we must learn to use them to their fullest if we are to wipe out tuberculosis, a preventable and curable disease. There are many actlvllitiea in which a county association may participate in carrying out a program to control tuberculosis. A primary project is case finding, the speaker stated. Another field in which the Iowa Tuberculosis and Health association is developing its activities is in relation to restoring the tuber- Electric Fences Must Be Handled Properly Electric fences can do as much harm as good if they are not selected and used properly, says Norval Wardle, farm safety spec ialist at Iowa State College. He says never to gamble with homemade fence controller, and to make sure that the equipment is installed correctly with good ground and lightning protection, The amount of current passing through an electric fence can be more than enough for electrocution.

Early fall is an excellent time to collect soil samples to be tested for lime and fertilizer needs. You can now spot the fields that did not produce so well this year and may be deficient in lime or fertilizer, says Walter Pitts, head of the Soil Testing Laboratory at Iowa State College.
