In order to give all producers an opportunity to check their township committee-men any any inaccurate statements, iiifonnation on production and other figures from producers who sign corn-hog contracts will be made public A confidential report, either written or verbal, rnav be made to local committeemen. In Iowa this Information will be published in the newspapers of the counties in which producers sign agreements. Decision as to the manner of publication and allocation among the newspapers and the agreement on setting rates for such publication will be made by each county association, which Is responsible for its own publlca'.ion costs. Farmers who sign agreements under the reopened program will become eligible for the second and final 1933 payment and for the 1934-35 adjustment benefits.

"The extra expense due to early brooding is returned many times as a result of better prices rgc^ved for cocks sold early in summer and from early eggs in late summer and fall by well developed pullets from early hatches." Another point that the chick raising- demonstrations brought out was t-hat hicks hatched during February. Marcrt and April weighed about one-fourth more per chick when they were 8 weelcss old than the chicks hatched later, air. Vernon says that this increased gain in weight will easily pay for the small amount of extra fuel needed for early brooding. He says that a little closer ittention may be given to the firing of. the stove during the few stormy days, and points out that it is a good idea to have the detailed care of chicles out of the way before the rush of spring work.
