Ttelr maternal desires have been squelched by man's science since the days of ancient Egypt and China. Man has found a better way to propagate poultry . . . except for the actual production of eggs. So long and so thoroughly has m*n discouraged hens from becoming biologically sentimental that ?ome breeds—notably the w’hlte leghorn—have almost dis- j continued the habit of periodically becoming maternal minded. Today's hens are machines that1 eat. lay eggs, cackle, eat, lay more eggs. The chicken is the mast domesticated of living things. The Chinese—perhaps at about j the same time they were learning j to roost pig—first deprived the Hen of her privilege of setting (Yes, “setting”). They piled the eggs in a basket, submerged it in ashes. Later, a Frenchman tried the method of hatching eggs in barrels of fermenting manure; but the people imagined that chickens of such birth had a foul taste. Since those early attempts, a lot of pinfeathers have fallen from the flocks. And all the time there have been improvements in the process of taking away the hen's maternity. First there were hot water incubators, then various forms of hot air machines. Poultrymen of the last few decades remember their experiences with mail-order, kero-sene-Iamp style incubators. But in the past half a dozen years the business of mechanically “setting" eggs has had its wrinkles really ironed out. Hatching is a big, commercial business today. Not only has the Dog Factions Discuss Issues In Open Forum Law's Opponents And Proponents Meet Together About 75 persons from Abilene and Taylor county gathered in the auditorium of the city hall Saturday afternoon for an open forum discussion of the proposed man, has two big incubators that j «dog law.# to ^ voted on through-accomodate 57,00 eggs at one time,    j    the county Tuesday.

CRAZED SLAYER FHA lo Insure Loans for Plant Enlargements i >    • Other Plans Being Studied To Help Small Business WASHINGTON, Feb. 5—(£*>—'The Federal Housing Administration regaled today partial insurance of plant improvement loans would be the administration's initial effort to solve the . an problem of small bu.- iness. Many other solutions of the problem. the importance of which was stressed by the thousand small bus-mess men who met here in the last week, also are being studied by tile t; dministration. The "little men” recommended government insurance of “loans for all necessary purposes.'' and direct government loans if banks failed to cooperate.
