Smith One of our local feed dealers recently .visited 'the Delmarva poultry producing section to observe ,the conditions ot its poultry industry. That section is greatly worried with certain downward trends, :and the news items brought from there clearly bear this out. Our own Northwest Ar- kaniin broiler area it now clearly ahead-of both ot the two Eastern areas in quality production, and thus, 'the Important question is will we continue to do a better job? , ' 1 What conditions, according to them news items, have caused poor quality production 7 Apparently they are: l.-Loss ot independence of the individual grower. In increasing production beyond hi? financial ability he became too dependent upon the feed dealer or financier an*, thui, : he became a hired hind, a tenant working under some kind of guarantee, or at best a profit sharing producer. No criticism' is .here intended toward either the "feed dealers, financiers, or farmer producers nor was any Intended in the news Items' 1 from these Eastern papers. It wns then and Is now being pointed out merely as a result of one's expanding beyond his ability, experience, and means. 2. Ovcf-crowdirtg of chickens. The Eastern sections have gone under the minimum o f . eight- tenths of a square foot per bird In winter and onc j ..full--square foot per bird in slimmer. This overcrowding has resulted in on increase in diseases. Incidentally disease problems multiply in all forms of congestion. Our apple Industry fell victim to that principal. It- was suggested- that not only were the birds congested in individual houses but that there might be. a general congestion within the whole territory. 3. General poor management expressed In lack ef sanitation, poorly constructed houses, poor ventilation, and poor attention to growing chickens was given as another cause of the sickness of thiir Industry. The saving of the industry foi those people is a problem for their agricultural leaders which they are -attacking vigorously. The problem for us In Northwest Arkansas Is to profit by their mistakes and to begin correcting our own defects before any general Illness occurs. We too have some overcrowding of chicks, some preventable diseases, some poor damp houses and some growers who arc expanding faster than they have acquired experience and. capital We too have in some degree every defect mentioned as plaguing the Eastern sections. But we have nol yet reached the same crisis In these factors whioh they have reached. Then, too, we have some advantages. We have more space and more air drainage; we arc closer to the feed sources and closer to the markets (New York and'adjoining cities exccptcd). I cannot entirely agree with some producers nnd promoters that if one is to produce broilers he must produce broilers alone. 1 believe that might be one of the troubles In the F,ast. Some broiler producers hart no other project to carry them through « price hrcnk. This threw them back, upon some kind of "profit sharing" or "(tuarantee" program which resulted In more general carelessness. Independence of the grower! Is Important. While an independent broiler pro«ram must be lane enouih to he profitable It must not. be over-large.

From left to right are Mrs. Rosie Tabor, Mrs. Betty Searcy, Mrs, W. H. Needham, and Mrs. C. T.' Marshall. (Hoy's Photoshop). By BILLIE JINKS Sprlngdale-(Specia))-Evor stop to thing about how many sheets it takes to change the beds in a 35- bed hospital? Count the bottom sheet, draw sheet and cover sheet and multiply your answer by 35. Now add the 105 soiled sheets to the 105 fresh sheets and see if you don't get 210 for only one change o f b e d linen. . . . This figure rcspcsents only sheets. A hospital needs much other linen in addition. There are at least 1,800 gowns in three sizes needed for (his size hospital besides the surgical linen and others. When all these types of linen are added up you begin to imagine the immensity ot the stack needed by a hospital. But In complicate matters, try to imagine how much of this linen is needed by a hospital in a town which has no laundry. Now you sec why the women of Springdale and its outlying communities arc sewing so diligently for the Springdale Memorial Hospital. The sowing actually got under way first when the Monitor Home Demonstration Club foresaw the coming need of the hospital and adopted as a club project the labor and materials which went into the making of three dozen pillows. Now that the sewing of the hospital linen has become organized, the Monitor Club and other organizations are cooperating in the work.- Miss Eva Atwood, a registered nurse who has spent 45 years. in hospital wo'rk, is -the chairman for the sewing. The hospital board made a wise selection when they named Miss-Atwood to' this position,' for no one could realize more clearly the necessity for plenty of linen in a . hospital, especially since Miss Atwood has served as an Army nurse with "overseas duty. The Woman's Civic Club offered, the use of its club rooms in the Public Library as a central meeting place in which to cut the garments which later could be sewed there or taken into individual homes to be finished. A delay in obtaining the material halted the project until three weeks ago. Since that time, with women working at the club rooms on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, and with many others working on the project in their homes, Miss Atwood thinks the sewing is about .one-third completed. Many other women could -be used in the project, and would be welcome either to help with the cutting o f . the garments at the library or to take a portion of the cut garments to their homes to complete. Much ot the sewing is being done by the following clubs and other organizations as a project: The Friendly Neighbors Club, Elm Springs H o m e Demonstration Club, V.F.W. Auxiliary, Springdale High School Home Economics Department, Caudle Avenue Baptist Church, Monitor Home Demonstration Club, Rcbekah Lodge, Oak Grove Home Demonstration Club; Apple Blossom Club, Friendship Club, Springdale Creek Club, Silent Grove Home .Demonstration Club, Sonora Home Demonstration Club, Home Loves Club and the Victory Home Demonstration club. At least 30 women working independently of the organizations arc sewing in their homes in addition to those who work at the cutting center on the sewing. One man has proved 1 a .great asset to sewing'proj- ect. He is Herb Hamby, formerly of Fayetteville. His many years experience in a garment factory plus his recent retirement mad« him available as the precision cutter for surgical linen. Mr. and Mrs. Hamby work together in their/home on the cutting and sewing. · . Although, the group which helps with the cutting at the club rooms varies, from day to day, a few faithful ones are there every day. Three of these are women who are more than 80 years old. There 'is working space' for many more than arc now taking part in the project. Miss Atwood is already looking forward to the day when the sewing will be completed. In fact, she has thought of an idea by which the women who have helped with the sewing may 1 have a chance to sec the new hospital upon its completion and at the same time be of .further aid to the. project. She plans to have an all-day meeting with a basket dinner at the hospital and invite all" those who helped in the project to' come to the hospital and spend the day marking the linen and. placing it on the shelves.' On that day, perhaps, everyone will have a chance to meet everyone else, who worked on the project. It is expected that the Springdale Memorial Hospital will bo opened in May. If it opens on May 12,. National Hospital.-Day, that leaves less than two months to complete the sewing project. Asked if she thought the sewing would bo completed by that lime, Miss Atwood replied firmly, "I know it will be." mental program to broilers. There are plenty of others. The two- acre broiler farm docs ' not give room for other programs and can not use its best by-product-manure, The feed dealers, hatcherymcn, producers, and agricultural loaders should all nvjiri finding fault with others and work together to prevent any similar illness in the Northwest Arkansas poultry in- dustry.
