Lebanon When calling a flock of hens at the end of the laying season, there are always a few Individuals that may be classed as doubtful. Very often the owner of the birds allows sympathy to Interfere with good business. According to G. W. Hervey of the University of Missouri college of agriculture, it is better to cull a bird that may lay five or sis more eggs only this fall than to keep her all winter as an absolute expense. A hen may show the characteristic ody depth of three or more fingers and yet may have, but a bones. This spread between means that the bird has stopped laying hut her period of hasn't been long enough for the body depth to close up also. She has just reached the point where she will be kept at a loss. Sometimes a bird may exhibit the desired characteristics of both good pelvic body depth and bones, yet her skin under the fluff may feel tough and leathery. Such a hen will invariably have coarse pelvic bones and a coarse breast bone. She may have had a period of production during the summer, but her total for the year would not justify retaining her another season. In culling the American breeds, the Wyandotte, Plymouth Rock and Rhode Island Red, one is apt to be confused, by the shank color test. The test Is not so reliable with these heavier breeds as It is with Leghorns, for the reason that when they become broody a certain amount of pigment is likely to return to the shank. One must make due allowance for this, and if the bird is favorable in appearance otherwise, it may be profitable to keep her over as a breeder for the spring season. In general, then, the poultry keeper when culling must not be Influenced by any single factor, but must all of them. The more rigid the culling the more capable Is the flock management. It Is usually safe to market at least half of the total number of hens at the end of the laying season, replacing them with pullets. one-fing- er the-pelvi- c well-sprea- d con-sfd- er $ltn..Mt..wMwM.....ft.--------"'- 4 it.

It is now clear that in the rehabilitation of nations and countries devastated by the war, the problem of vitality and the building up of takes the first place in Red Cross activities. Further, it is evident that the feeding of foreign peoples, as well as general material relief is not a field which can be assumed by the Red Cross. There remains, however, the problem of sickness and disease, and particularly a diminished and weakened child population, which none of the countries of Eastern Europe is In a position to meet with Its own resources, but where the American Red Cross is in a position n offer indispensable aid and service. Recognizing these facts, the Red Cross effort in Europe during recent months has been concentrated more and more on establishing and extending through the countries of Eastern Europe, as well as Siberia, a constructive health service, looking not only toward relief in the Immediate situation but also toward the establishment of permanent health service built on national foundations in each country concerned. The medical and surgical supplies of all kinds made available for use by the Red Cross by a recent Act of Congress at once enable the Red Cross to plan this effort in medical relief en a broad, comprehensive and constructive scalo. The $15,000,000 asked by the Red Cross in the Third Roll Call, will be devoted, thereNovember fore, largely to the administration of this program and making effective the distribution of materials derived from surplus Army supplies. The materials for general relief to be administered in addition to and in connection with the above will be obtained largely from supplies now in the possession of the Red Cross, or will be covered by small expenditure where purchase may prove necessary. This program permits not only a definition in scope of the work to be carried on, but a limitation in time, presumably a period of one year. At the expiration of that time the work of the Red Cross abroad will have been largely rounded out, and activities concentrated on a program of service to Americans. man-power 1, F & OLLOWING exhaustive reports from Its various Commissions Mrs. John D.
