Carrying Appropriation for Manufac ture Government Special to The Washington D Feb ernment manufacture and sale of hog cholera serum for controlling and preventing the spread of the scourge which has cost Iowa farm ers millions was the plan proposed in an amendment tiled with the house agricultural committee by Congressman G N Haugentoday Mr Haugen who is a member of the subcommittee considering the num erous MUs dealing with the hog chol era situation declares the house sub committee has not shown a willing ness to go over an appropriation of for this work but he be lieves his will be an ac ceptable compromise to the bills some of which ask as high as a and And he be lieves lie can show Ills colleagues on the committee that the only practic able plan is to have the government manufacture the serum His amend ment provide For demonstrating the best method of controlling and preventing the spread of hog cholera and the eradication thereof It is provided further that of this sum not less than shall be set aside for tile erationand maintenance a plant for the production of antihog chol era serum and to put into force a plan whereby the said serum can be obtained from the government at the cost of its Haugens Position Mr Haugen holds that there has been enough demonstration now to show the danger and expense of hog cholera and the practicability of tlie government serum What is needed he says is to place this in the hands of the farmers in time of need At present although thirty states are manufacturing their own serum they cannot begin to supply the de mand for It and before the private manufacturers can fill orders the cholera has done its work In Cerro Gordo and Worth counties last year he said thousands of hogs died while farmers were waiting for their hog cholera serum orders to be filled Aside from government manufacture and distribution at cost he would al so have government inspection of private plants similar to the meat inspection by the government at packing plants A B JVIelvian chief of the bureau of animal industry was before the commitee today to discuss this feature of the plan Iowa Visitors J J Richardson veteran publish er of
