She ecurried off to show it to the other animals in the barnyard. "Look Pig! Look Duck! Look Cow!" she clucked. "I have found a grain of wheat. Now, who will help me plant my wheat?" Pig snorted, "Not me. Td lose my unemployment insurance payments if I went to work planting wheat." And he stuck his snout back into his trough. Little Red Hen looked at Duck waddling back and forth at the edge of the pond. "Quack, quack! Don't look at me. I'm on strike for.higher pay and shorter hours."  Then she looked hopefully at Cow. But Cow. lowered her bead and mooed, "I won't do it. It's demeaning work. Just because I'm a female don't expect me to do all the mundane jobs women have been doing for years. I'm going to compete on equal terms, no matter what, in this male-dominated world." "Cluck, cluck," said Little Red Hen. "All right then. I will plant the wheat myself." And she did. Soon the wheat bad grown. "Look at my lovely, ripe wheat!" cried Little Red Hen. "Who will .help me cut the wheat?" Pig lifted his .head from bis trough, slobbered, then grunted, "Not me, baby. I'd lose my welfare payments if I went to work." Duck preened his feathers and quacked, "Not me. There's no clause in my union contract that says I have to cut wheat." Cow swished he: tail angrily, "Not me," she said firmly, smacking a fly (male) with her tassle, "if I did it, it would be just one more example of discrimination because I happened to have been born a female in a man's world." Little Red Hen shook her head and sighed, "All right, then. I will cut the wheat my- self." And she did. Before long the wheat was ground and ready to be baked into bread. Little Red Hen approached the three barnyard creatures again. "Who will help me bake my bread?" she asked. Pig groaned, "Not me. I caught my tail in the barn door and accidentally straightened it. I can't work. I'm living on workman's compensation." Quickly Duck quacked his reasons, "I can't help. I've already worked the six and a half hour week specified in my contract I couldn't possibly work 10 minutes overtime. My union wouldn't stand for it." Cow swallowed her cud for a moment and lamented, "Wouldn't you know it? Just because I'm a woman you expect me to do all the dull, boring, domestic chores. Nobody cares that I've got my B.A. (Buttermilk Arts), my M.A. (Margarine Alternate) and my Ph.D. (Doctor of Phemale-ology). Oh no! Everybody looks at me and says, 'You're a woman. You're a cow. So you must give the milk. You must bake the bread.' I say 'NO! I will not bake the bread.' Down, down with baking bread! And up, up with women's rights!" Then, vehemently she clomp- Buried alive digging grave PORT OF SPAIN (Reuter) - A man digging a grave for his father was buried alive and killed when the grave caved in. Police said Ramdial Kalloo and a friend, Danna Ramoutar, were digging tine grave today near Freetown in central Trinidad for Kalloo's father. Nearby villagers dug the two out. Both were given artificial respiration but Kalloo was dead. ed off, chewing her cud in disgust. Again Little Red Hen sighed deeply, "All right then. I will bake the bread myself." And she did. Soon the bread was done. It smelled delicious. As Little Red Hen sat down at her table to savor her baking, she mused aloud, "Well now, I wonder who will help me eat my bread?" Immediately, into the coop, charged Pig. 'Twill," he snorted. "I deserve enough to eat. It's only fair that the welfare should give me some of that bread;" Right behind him came Duck, "I will help you eat the bread," he announced. "It's spelled out right here in my union contract. 'Fringe benefits to include fair share of hen's bread.' " UTHBBIDOt RESEARCH STATION Efficient feed utilization DR. D. M. BOWDEN Animal Nutritionist Feed represents about 60 percent of the total cost to produce a weaned beef calf. Factors that influence feeding costs include the price paid for feed, the reproductive rate and efficiency with which the cow uses her feed to produce the foetus and milk, and also the size and growth rate of the calf. The amount of feed used by each cow is influenced by her body size and her ability to digest and use the nutrients from the feed. A study to define more accurately the factors influencing the ability of the beef cow to use feed is being started at the Lethbridge Research Station. Females will be individually fed from the time they are weaned until they wean their third calf. During this period their feed intake will be recorded. We will also record the amount of milk their calves consume and the growth rate of the |P00L -A.J for Quality SeeYour Poo/ManWW! calves to weaning and to slaughter and their efficiency of feed utilization. The efficiency of feed use by the cows will be expressed in terms of both pounds of calf weaned and lean meat produced. A preliminary trial conducted in 1970 with 12 two-year-old heifers indicated the variation to be expected in efficiency of feed use. The animals used in this study were of various breeds and crosses. Their body weight at calving varied from 802 pounds to 1,350 pounds. When weaned at 180 days the average weight of their calves was 486 pounds for five males and 354 for seven females. Milk production (corrected to four percent fat content) ranged from 12.1 to 20.3 pounds per day. The largest cow and her calf consumed 6,851 pounds of feed, as dry matter, from calving to 180 days, while the smallest cow and her calf consumed 4,012 pounds. However, the body size of the cows did not closely relate to the weight of feed consumed per pound of calf weaned. This value varied from 5.9 to 9.9 pounds of digestible dry matter per pound of calf weaned. One possible guide for indicating efficiency of the feed used to produce a calf is the weight of the calf at weaning expressed us a percentage of the weight of the cow at calving. In this preliminary study the least amount of feed per pound of calf weaned was used by cows whose calves weighed over 50 percent of their dam's weight at 180 days of age. Fifty percent less feed was used for these calves than for those that reached less than 40 percent of their dam's weight at this age. The slowest gaining and least-efficient calves were those that consumed very little dry feed in addition to their mother's milk. The long-term study now underway will provide information to define the important factors influencing efficiency with which beef females use feed during their lifetime. Woman crashes grain market MIN^S-IPOLIS, Minn. (AP)  A Fergus Falls, Minn., businesswoman, is the first woman elected to membership in the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, the world's largest cash grain market. Jeannette L. Hanson, mother of four daughters aged 10 to 18, was elected to membership by the board of directors of the 90 - year - old exchange. Her husband, Allen, is also a member. "I doubt that the fact that 1 am a woman will make any difference at all in any or-ganization that has the dignity of the Minneapolis Grain Exchange," Mrs. Hanson said. No more had Duck seated himself at Little Red Hen's table, than Cow squeezed her bulk into the coop. "Where's the bread?" she shouted. "I'll show you that I can hold my own in a man's world. Feminine equality is what I demand. Give me an equal portion of that bread." In a matter of moments the bread was gone. Little Red Hen looked sadly at the few tiny crumbs remaining on the platter. "Well, that settles it," she clucked, ruffling hsr feathers and strutting over to her telephone. "I'll have to do it after all." "What are you going to do Little Red Hen?" cried Pig and Duck and Cow. But she didn't answer. She just went on with her dialing. "Operator, g i v e me Ottawa. Hello, Pierre, is that you? Yes. Well, it's about that subsidy you said you'd pay western farmers for not growing witoat . . . Yes, that one . . . Well, Pierre, I'll take it too." And she did! Farm dollar worth 65 cents CARDSTON (Special) - Unl-farm president Dobson Lea told about 50 members at the district convention in Cardston recently that the farmer's dollar is worth about 65 cents under present conditions. He warned farmers that they sometimes compete with each other to the point where the consumer reaps the benefit. Surplusses produced at less than cost of production should not be permitted into areas to undersell local producers. Unifarm approves farm to farm movement of grain. When it passes over provincial boundaries it should go under the wheat board control system. Mr. Lea reported on the presentations made to provincial and federal governments, also his recent trip to the International Grains Council in Switzerland. Harold Fairies was elected district chairman and G. L. Smith vice-chairman. Directors elected were Keith Leavitt, Glenn Woolf, Ted Mackenzie, Lila Smith Arvid Lar-sen and W. Wockmtz. IIYrjllfll Crop acreages show increases WASHINGTON (AP)-Ameri-can farmers Mend to plant 71.5 million acres of corn this year, a tix-per-cent increase from 1970 when a new type of fungus disease cut deeply into the United States' moat important grain crop, the agriculture department announced recently. The crop reporting board said the annual March 1 survey showed plantings of corn will increase 4.3 million acres from last year; soybeans up 3.2 mil. lion; sorghums up 2.9 million; and spring wheat other than durum up 2.3 million acres. come spring come savings The mnn> yn'i buy. the more you snve. on Farm Lubricants MILAN BALOG HIGHWAY 3, WEST BlAIRMORE Phone 562-2144 R.
