Smith, New York State Agri- cultural Extension Division. WNU Service. A fair price for poults which will enable breeders to break even and perhaps make a little money in spite of high feed prices is the first point in the turkey outlook. The outlook applies to those who buy poults from New York state breeders. Cornell veterinary college has found that pullorum disease is not important in the state's turkey flocks, and those tested have been found free of this disease. Accord- ing to authorities In some other states, pullorum infestation is se- rious. i Second point in the outlook is that ;. commercial growers will probably i face higher feed prices for pours ! the first part of the growing season, i which is not so serious because to- First automobiles shown arriving in San Francisco from Marin county across the Golden Gate bridge, fol-i tal consumption is not large during lowing the recent gala opening of the span to motor traffic.

Finaliy, if the expected good wheat crop develops, together with i Spelling Champ Wins $500 Prize 1 DETROIT BISHOP i a good corn crop. the probabilities are that turkey rations will be con- i siderably lower from July on ' through the growing season. Since that is when turkeys eat the most feed, a reduction in price is more important at that time. These facts indicate a "more fav- orable" condition for the 1937 tur- key grower, though not a "partic- ularly favorable" one. New Interest Is Taken in Jerusalem Artichokes A new interest is being taken in Jerusalen artichokes as a source of material for the manufacture of sugar and alcohol, states a writer in the Chicago Tribune. The tubers of this old crop have been used for human food and live stock feed. I For many years they have been I regarded as a good feed for hogs.

Pigs have been found to make little gain when fed on artichokes alone. Grain Mixture for Poultry There are several grains or com- binations of grains that give satisfac- tory results, but the one most com- monly used in all sections of this state, says a North Carolina State college poultryman, is composed of 60 per cent yellow corn and 40 per cent wheat. However, this ra- tion should be largely governed by what is grown on the farm, and the cost of the grain which must be purchased. Where there is an abun- dance of heavy barley (48 pounds to the bushel) or heavy oats (38 pounds to the bushel) these may be substi- tuted for a part of the corn and wheat, but should never exceed 30 per cent of the grain mixture.
