PftOGttAM TO CflBECK 8W1NB INFLUENZA . .Unless Kossuth county farmers take steps hot to protect thuir swine herds against attacks of flu, the dis* ease Is likely to work/havoc among hogs when (iold, wet weather acts In. This Is pointed out by County Extension Director A. L. Brown, who says the best Way to handle hog flu is to prevent it. Since there Is no vaccine or serum that will eMher. prevent .or cure the disease, the best preventive measures, are to supply adequate shelter from cold and drafts, furnish adequate bedding, feed a well-balanced ration, keep strangers put of hogs lots and keep newly purchas" ed' animals separated frown the home herd for three weeks untM they have proved that they are not flu carriers. Flu is highly contagious and Is easily transmitted from one lot to another by stock trucks and wagons as well as stockmen and newly-acquired hog's. When and If flu does strike, the onset is sudden and the entire herd may become sick In 24 to 48 hours. The first symptoms a,re loss of appetite, a disinclination to move, a dlse In temperaturcj jferky or thtim- py breathing and some coughing. * • • ,, ;• HOME EOONOROSf EXPLAINS PURPOSE OF MEAT SHARING The "Share the Meat" campaign is a conservation measure designed to.distribute the civilian meat atip- ply fairly. Miss Alma Schultz, the county home economist, explains that the voluntary fallowing will be In effect until an adequate system of meat rationing can be put .'•nto operation probably some time after the first of the year. The program affects beef, pork, veal, Iamb and mutton, whether slaughtered on the farm or commercially. Farmers who butcher meat for home use; people who buy from farmers for storage in- freezer lockers and those who eat away from home are expected to observe the weekly allowance. Some families may have to use larger quantities of meat In a single week to avoid meat wnste but should plan to use less at a later time and thus . maintain the 2H pounds weekly average. Farm homemakers may want to avoid waste *by preserving more meat than usual at buteher.'.ng time. 'Glandular parts, such as liver, tongue, kidney, brains and sweetbreads are not Included in the share allowance and may'be twed in addition to the 2% pounds. Poultry and flsh also are'exempt from the share. Children under 12 years and elderly persons .in the family do not require so much meat as adolescents and middle aged family members, so the full 2V& pounds Is not provided for them. Three-fourths of a pound is allowed for children under 6 years and 1% pounds for 6 to 12 year olds. Elderly persons should be.allowed as much as they normally eat, provided that Is less than 2% pounds a week. Brother-in-law of Dr. C. C. Shierk Meet Death in Air Flight Dr. C. C.
