Greenfield o Seek To Increase Sale of Poultry With Low Prices The present poultry market situation has been the source of considerable concern on the part of the entire poultry industry. With It wa and the midwtst fac'n* a high price feed situation, coupled v/ith very low etujfcen and turkey values, and egg priest which although high, are unfavorable to producers at the present time, it Is Imperative that the Individual hatchery in cooperation with others in the Industry tell Mr. and Mrs. Consumer In our local markets that there is an abundance of poultry In all sizes at attractive prices and of fine quality. It Is common knowledge among students of economics that as the financial status of the family changes there is a definite reflection in food expenditures and the distribution of the expenditures among the various food items. Everyone in the industry hopes and is looking forward to the time when poultry meat will be an al - yemr-round food and not a holiday special. In other words, we desire a steady rather than a seasonal demand. Perhaps in this period we may witness the beginning of an established habit.

Seeing a dull motion picture which should have been interesting by rules of previous examples—auch as "The Gold Diggers", which is nothing so much as a headache —queers one for the next movie. One can only hope that the next on the calendar is not a choice picture, lest it be overlooked. Fortunately, this week there is time to recover before the showing of what Is bound to be one of the milestones In the development of color photography. Don't miss Hie Garden of Allah," whatever your prejudices may be. See and remember it. In the prevuc there Is a perfectly beautiful composition, a caravan moving up the hill to the right against a dark sky ghted in radiating lines of sunset glow, In opposition to the line of the hillside. This opposition of lines Is one of the strangest means of keeping the picture within Us set size and shape—that is, there is no feeling that the action of the picture will go beyond the space within the camera's vision. Elysla," supposed to be spicy, shocking, or merely a gyp, was so boring it is half-coy, half- would-be educational character, (it was passed by the National Board of Review), that the critic walked out The only real amusement afforded by It was in watching people pass the theatre earlier In the day as they looked at the surprisingly nude photographs. A woman would walk clear past and then look back* furtively over her shoulder A man—often as not one clad In overalls, sheepskin jacket, ear-tapped cap. and high overshoes, not to mention two days' growth of beard-would stop, look; register surprise, embarassment, eagerness; the while turning from pink to raw red the color of more or less fresh beefsteak. It is reported that the supposed to have been fan dancers who turned out to be anythlng-but, >;?m&***-,> One does not were booed off the stage. One does not know whether this was due to disappointment or to the inevitable reaction from the viewing of "Stowaway." Certainly, even Sally Rand would be hard pressed to counteract the sweetness and light of a Shirley Temple picture and one of her best at that. It was a pleasure to see this universally idolized child of the screen given a more rational relation to the rest of the cast and less ballyhoo. Moreover, Chinese do impart a pleasant sing-song swing to the rhythm. But to go back to the whatever-you-may-cal'.- thcm attractions, the really disgusting aspect of the whole matter Is that people will fight to get In to see them, and yet will pass up the good (that la artistically fine and genuine) pictures. How many of the yammering crowds of New Years cva hail seen the rollicking, tuneful German picture "Waltz-Time in Vienna" which was enjoyed by the non-German speaking audience almost as much ns by those who could understand the subtlest joke. What a pity it wasn't shown on "gambl- IIIK night" when even the most indifferent will take a high-class picture as part of the price of the game and then find themselves enjoying it in spite of themselves. How many saw that wild animal picture taken In "The Last Wilderness" of the United States, a picture which svery child and every adult nature-lover could enjoy seeing at least once a year. Think of the Indifference with which many people turned away from the absolute sincerity and reverent humour of that gem of folklore, "The Green Pastures," which the English censors have only just gotten around to approve. And the spiritual significance of "The Passing of the Third Floor Back" lost upon the majority at a »lme when Christianity is being stifled In certain European countries, and the perfection of "Scrooge" overlooked at Christmas time a year ago. And the historical as well as artistic Importance of "Nine Days a Queen," making English history live again in a year when three kings have been on the throne of England.

Remember the old days when we used to tuck the family automobile uway for the winter? The idea of driving a car in cold weather was something to make us stand aghast. Very often we locked the machine up in a garage to hibernate all through the cold or icy- weather. Machines are now built to withstand the rigors of extreme weather, provided we take care of them. Winter driving, without question, s hard on any type of gasoline notor-driven vehicle. We who drive should realize this fact and treat our automobiles accordingly. We should see that proper oil and proper lubricants are put into our machine's. We should see that chains are used on slippery, icy. and snowy roads. Treat the old car as you would treat an old friend. You will get back in service just what you give In care and consideration.
