COLLIER The most widely bred chicken on Fuget Sound and in the state of Washington is the single comb White Leghorn.. The Leghorn .is known as a; great. Jayjr and. is con- sidered by good authorities one of the best layers' recognized iri the "Standard of the book that is used by all poultry judges in America and in some foreign countries, notably kolland. The cecond most' widely bred Breed is Rhode island -Reds, "there being two varieties, the rose and single comb. The comb is the only place in which these fowls differ, color and type being the same. The single comb variety seems to be the most popular of the two and this fowl is bred everywhere chickens are raked, and so well known that in the big markets like New York city, Rhode Island Reds are car- ried in the market reports of good fowls for table purposes. Within the last few years breed- ers in the New England states have created a breed which they call New Hampshire Reds and the breeders of the new chicken asked admission to the "Standard of Per- fection." This was done in order that the new breed would be of- ficially recognized. The meeting of the American Poultry association held its annual meeting at Danville, 111. All rules were followed and the New Hamp- shire Red breeders. asked for of- ficial recognition. "When it was known that admis- sion was being asked, the breeders of Rhode Island Reds started a fight against the new breed on the grounds that the New Hampshire Reds were very much alike in breed characteristics and that the use of the word "Red" would be mis- leading, although it was proceeded with New Hampshire, the name of the state where the new fowl was first created. The state of Washington is al- ways interested when new things Jjare doing in chickens and this time "it was localized for two reasons. First. Ernest Loyd is.president of the Rhode Island Red breeders, and the second place, Charles B. Staples, an old timer in Tacoma, brought in the first New Hampshire Reds and showed them at the Western Wash- ington fair last September. These fowls came direct from Andrew Christie of New Hampshire, one of the originators and promoters of the new breed. As the fight on the admission had a local flavor, of course the people who breed fowls were very anxious to find out, the outcome. The revision committee of the American Poultry association heard the evidence from both sides to the controversy and they brought in a report to admit the new breed to official recognition but the name Kcd was dropped and the new fowls were made standard by giving them the name New Hampshires. Charles B. Staples, although hav- ing lived in Pierce county for over 40 years, was a native of New Eng- land and the funny part of it was that Mr. Staples was born in Rhode Island. Mr. Loyd, another old tim- er (yet not so came here from the middle west. He is an ardent breeder of Rhode Island Reds and has not only made fame with his fowls in the show room but, ha" made great records with his Reds in many egg laying con- tests. Charles B. Staples -has always t bli o r (1 y e d hair successfully. Grey hair is not discolored all types of hair can be waved with- out stretching.

General Lee was elected at the 45th an- nual reunion held this year in Amarillo, Shreveport, La., was choacn as the 1936 con- clave city. I been a great admirer of the Barred Plymouth Rocks, another great New England production that took its name from Plymouth Rock of Massachusetts, the home of the early settlers of New England. Last fall Andrew Christie sent out a pen of the New Hampshires that had taken prizes in the great New York fair and these fowls took premiums at Puyallup and wherever they were shown in the winter poultry shows. From this peri Mr. Staples has grown quite a few youngsters and he will have not only the old fowls at the Western Washington fair, but also a fine string of youngsters. It is expected that Mr. Loyd on the other hand will fill many coops with fine single and rose comb Rhode Island Beds at the Western Washington fair, thereby bringing fame to Puget Sound where the best fowls on earth can be grown. There is something in the Wash- ington climate, especially Puget Sound, that brings out the lay in all kinds of fowls. We have no poor layers, that is in the hands of real breeders. Our average lay is the largest of any section in America. We hold several world records and the first great record was made at Pullman with a Tancred pullet that laid 311 eggs back 20 years ago. A. H. Notter, another Rhode Island Red breeder, brought fame to the state in a fine entry at Puyallup when he had two pullets not only lead the big lay of that year, but had two sisters tie for first place. When I was down south I met a doctor who wanted the best Rhode Island Red that his money could buy. He asked me if I would not ship him a good cock bird that had the lay behind it with exhibi- tion quality that would win in the showroom. When I came home I picked out a good fowl and ship- ped it to the doctor at Opelika, Ala. From this great bird the doctor produced a pullet that made an all- time record at the Alabama Agri- cultural college, Auburn, Ala. When I was in Opelika I went with Dr. Peacock to visit Auburn (seven miles from Opelika} and looked over the contest then being held. Tills was in 1932. I found two pens of White Leghorns In the contest, one from L. H. Beale, Vashon, and the other from Mort Atkinson, Hollywood, both in King county. It's useless to try and get better layers anywhere outside of Puget Sound country. It's all right to bring in new blood every once and awhile, but if you want real egg producers, stay in your own back yard on Puget Sound. The cock bird that was sent to Dr. Peacock that produced the above great Rhode Island Red pul- lets, was bred by A. H. Notter at Pern Hill. Charlie Staples lives in my own precinct, Lake City, while Mr. Loyd makes his home, near Fei'n Hill in Tacoma. If you want to see the best poultry show held in the great Northwest, spend a week at the Western Washington fair. Puyallup, and Superintendent H. W. Beckendorf will show you lots of good fowls. o The new wheat adjustment con- tract has been approved In final form and will be offered to Wash- ington farmers soon, P. D. Yeager, county agegnt, has been notified by the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. Details of the contract will be fully explained at local meetings which will be held during the sign- up campaign, Mr. Yenger says. The. contract was drafted after it had been studied by farmer rcpreserit- tives from the principal wheat growing states, and after they had made suggestions regarding it. The highlights of the new con- tract, according to word from Washington, are as follows: The contract is to run for four years, from 1936 to 1939, Inclusive, as compared with the three-year period of the present contract. The longer period will reduce the cost of frequent sign-up campaigns, and will enable the signer t-> plan his operations over the four-year per- iod. Provision is made for voluntary withdrawal by individuals from the contract at the end of two years, if a farmer has fully complied with the contract. The secretary of agriculture may also terminate the contract at end of any mar- keting year if circumstances war- rant, or if a national referendum on the question Is held and a ma- jority of the contract signers vote against continuation.

Under the new contract the pro- ducer will have additional as- urance of a full parity return on his allotment through the 'lexible payment principle. Un- der this plan, producers will a first payment each year, and then at the end of the year, the second .adjustment pay- ment will be fixed at such an amount as will tend to give the producer parity according to what ;he price of wheat has been dur- ing the marketing year. The reduction each year will de- pend upon the national and world wheat stiuation. The contract pro- ides that the reduction may as much as 25 per cent under the basic acreage. This is the extreme imit, however. The 1933-35 contract has called for as much as 20 per cent, but the most required was n 1934, when 15 per cent was asked. For 1935 the reduction asked was only 10 per cent and the fig- ure for 1936 is five per cent. A fea- ture of the new contract is that producers agree to hold their acreage within the base figure, ven if no reduction is asked. The base years for the new wheat contract are the same as ;hose for the present 1930-32 for acreage and 1928-32 for production. Under certain condi- ,ions, four-year and five-year base periods may be used, to meet spe- ;ial crop-rotation and summer fal- low practices. All wheat producers who can es- tablish a base production and acreage are eligible to sign. Under certain conditions, farmers who did not grow wheat in all the base years may sign contracts and re- ceive adjustment payments on a united scale. Producers who have not been contract signers and who wish to go into the new program should get in touch with the coun- ty agent, or the county or commu- nity committeemcn. The adjusted acreage is to be used for such purposes as pasture, hay, timber, shelter belts, soil ero- sion prevention, weed control, soil mprovement and summer fallow, "Adjusted under the new contract means the same as "con- tracted under the first contract. No adjustment payments can lie i assigned to any person or party. The signers of the contract are the only ones who can receive ad-; ju-stment payments, except that in j certain instances, agents of estates, j etc., may receive the payments Farmers signing the contract may name a beneficiary, such as is done under an insurance Then if the farmer should die, or disap- pear, the beneficiary could receive the payment's if the contract .sign- er dies. If any attachment, the ad- justment payments are to be held up until the producer Is free to receive them. If the producer violates the con- tract, it may be terminated and the producer held responsible for the repayment of his adjustment payments for the previous year. Where a producer operates sev- eral firms as a single unit, nr- rangcmrnts may be made for n Joint compliance under certain spe- cific conditions, Just as under the contract. Landlords may submit several farms undcraslngle ronlrnct. If thr tenants are wllllnit and if the farming practices are such that a contract of this type is desirable. The new contract protects ten- ants against changes in leases which would result in reducing the tenant's adjustment payments. The producer certifies when he signs the contract that no device or scheme has been used which would deprive any other party to the contract of his rightful share of the payments. If the lease, is changed during the life of the con- tract, no change can be made in the division of payments, unless such change is approved by the allotment committee. .------------o------------ FARMS CHANGE HANDS Several southern Lewis county farms have been sold within the past few days to newcomers from the middle west. Included are the Manning place, 121 acres, to a Minnesota familyr 17 acres of Andrew Johnson 'holdings to Wy- oming parties; the Alex Smith, 40 acres, fully equipped, east of To- ledo to Minnesotans; Mike Blum's 20 acres south of Toledo to South HARVEST PEAS This year's pig crop will be the smallest in many years, says the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, on the basis of its spring pig crop report. he reduced production is attrib- uted to last summer's drought, which shrunk feed grain produc- tion to the smallest volume in many years, to the low price of hogs last year, and to the unfa- vorable hog-corn ratio. The spring pig crop of 1935 was 20 per cent smaller than the small spring crop of decrease of about head. Decreased production in the corn belt is csti- .inated at 22 per cent. Tile bureau points out, however, that "the downward trend of hog production has ended, since the number of sows to farrow next fall is estimated at 19 per cent more than the number farrowed in the fall of BOSSY TO CRUISE E. H. House, who cultivated 30 acres of peas at Burrows on Grays Harbor, tried out the crop this year for the first time and har- vested two tons per acre. This was despite the fact that plantings were late. The peas are being ship- ped to the green pod eastern mar- kets.
