Poul- try Program Praised Five? thousand' chicks chirped greetings today to n hundred farm club youths who will re- ceive the premium hatch from the Ada Chamber of Commerce in its third annual poultry pro- gram. The luncheon program and dis- pensing of chicks was preceded by two hours of instruction in poultry brooding and rearing, led by Don Brooks, of Oklahoma A. and M. college, and Cy Hailey, ijontotoc county agent, in the dis- trict court room. Brooks, speaking before mem- bers of the Chamber of Com- merce and farm youth, termed the C. of C. poultry program as ''outstanding over the state." In fact, he added, some other civic organizations over the state have modeled similar poultry experi- ments after the one started here three years ago. The poultry husbandry special- ist pointed particularly to two features of the program: "Taking them (farm youth) into a busi- ness and giving the young poultrymen the necessary "know-how." He said that Floyd's Hatchery breeding farm is the largest such breeding enterprise for poultry m Oklahoma, and furthermore, it has the best egg production records for the breeds Floyd's is developing. Brooks declared. The speaker noted that the poultry industry grew to n two one-half billion dollar jn- iustry during the war, and said hat more farms include poultry than any other type of County Farmer's Daughter Makes History .r...

March 7.-W) country's newly-stressed emphasis on blunt talk in world affairs has some American diplo- matic officials worried lest the policy appear aimed exclusively at Russia. Acknowledging their concern privately today, these officials made a point of noting that the sting of frank words has been felt in diametrically opposite tnat is, in Spain and Argentina, as well as in the Soviet Union. Just Plain Dealings The whole idea, they say, is based on the hope that a straight- from-thc-shoulder approach will succeed in forcing a quick yet friendly showdown where tradi- tional hush-hush diplomacy might add to suspicion. These officials, who must re- mam unnamed, said critics of American foreign policy should remember that American notes protesting Russia's plans in Man- thurin and Iran were preceded first by an indictment of Argen- :me action during the war and jy n three-power denunciation of Franco's Spanish government for collaboration with the axis.
