t—Algeria (la.) Upp«r Des Mo!n« Thurtday, S*p». 9, 1965 Longtime Hatcheryman At Whittemore Retires Ed H. Maahs, a longtime resident in the Whittemore area, has decided to retire from the Whittemore Hatchery. Mr. Maahs has spent most of a lifetime In the poultry Industry. His first venture was fl produce house which he opened in tho fall of 1927. He kert his disease and management information up- to-date throughout the ensuing years by frequent trips to the Salsbury short course at Charles City. In 1930 Mr. Maahs held what was then known as Baby Chick Auctions, but because he did not always get the quality of chick that he desired, he began his own hatchery in 1934. His first chicks were hatched in a time consuming Buckeye Steam Heated Incubator. Shortly after this, chick sexing came into Its own and Mr.Maahslearned this highly exacting trade. In Just one season, however, he learned that he could not do Justice to commercial chick sexing and managing a hatchery so the sexing was discontinued. The present hatchery building was constructed in 1935 and incubator capacity was increased to meet the demand for Whittemore Hatchery chicks. Mr. Maahs was doing strain crossing at this time - a rather new Innovation which Improved layer performance andlivabillty. Elmer A. Maahs returned from the service In 1946 and Joined his father In the growing business. It was soon after this that Hy-Line chicks were, and still are, hatched at the Whittemore Hatchery. In 1951 Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Maahs purchased the hatchery and since this time Ed Maahs has devoted most of his time to incubation and farm service. In 1956 one of the most modern small feed plants was constructed north of the hatchery site. Again because of an ever-Increasing hatchery volume, Elmer and Jeannette felt compelled to sell the feed mill in order to provide better service to their Hy-Line chick customers. Therefore, in November of 1959 the feed mill was sold to Harold Poppen, Manson, Iowa and Harold Green, Sac City, Iowa. In 1957Eldon Maahs Joined the force in order to take on the duties of assistant manager which are required for the successful operation of a modern hatchery. Another addition to the building was also made to house a new master incubator and to provide added room. With this increase in Incubators the hatchery could hatch 40,000 Hy-Line chicks per week. Close grading was a necessity and more and more people were asking that their chicks be dubbed, debeaked and dewinged. From its very beginning, the Whittemore Hatchery until sold August 1, has been pretty much a family operation with sons Elmer, Eldon, Eugene, Eddie, Earl, Everett and Mrs. Elmer and Eldon Maahs taking active parts In the business. In fact, Mr. Maahs credits his success to a cooperative family, a good poultry area and the desire to place quality and service alxive all else. Asked what he would do in retirement, Mr. Maahs stated that he would lie working on a part- time basis and that it would probably have something to do with the agricultural field. Divorce Action Russel Cole, plaintiff, filed suit for divorce from Armagene Cole, defendant, here in district court last week, charging cruel and inhuman treatment. He asks that the defendant be granted custody of four minor children and agrees to provide reasonable support. The plaintiff asks that he be awarded a 1955 auto. They were married June 1,1947.
