This points out the most practical methQd of mak- ing money out of poultrythe most practical solution of the problem of the surplus eggs. When hens lay 120 eggs per year, the production costs per dozen ap- proximate 27 cents and the prob- able loss this year will be about 15 cents per hen. When hens lay 240 eggs under the same conditions, pro- ducing costs per dozen will approxi- mate 15 cents and the profit will be about $2.20 per hen. , Cull out the poor hens and keep their eggs off the market, adwscs W. D. Buchanan, extension specialist in poultry at the State College of Wash ington. Give the profitable hens ex- cellent care and all of the feed that they can handle. It is important to get rid of all the hens that do not produce a profit, for the eggs laid by the poor hen are not only produced at a loss, but they go on the market in competition with those of the good hen. Thus they cause a second loss through lower- ing the price of the product.

"Fair Opens Thursday Heavy Orders [;ul Supply of Pylrol Expect Final Allotment To Be Used Long Before March 31 In view of the exceptionally heavy ders for pyrotol from July 1 to eptember 15, it is expected that the inal allotment of this explosive will )e exhausted long before March 31, :he date set by the Bureau of Public oads for discontinuing the distribu- :ion of farm explosives. Washington's final allotment of 1,- 100,000 pounds was the largest allot- nent of pyrotol in the United States From July to September 15 norm- ally a time when farmers do not use farm explosives, orders totaled 386,- 700 pounds or about one-fourth of the total supply. This far exceeds orders at the same .time last year, says R. N. Miller, extension special- list in land elearin economics at the [ State College/of Washington. There will be no further distribu- tion of farm explosives by the Bureau of Pt, b]ic Roads after the present allotment, as the supply of left-over war explosive's alloted for 'arm use is exhausted. Pyrotol not distributed by March 31 in any state will be allotted for highway construe tion.' Due to the demand for the final supply of pyrotol, individual farm orders are being limited to 1,000 pounds per man. Orders are accept- ed through county agricultural agents or other authorized agents. Pyrotol may be used in the same manner as other farm explosives. "P, T. A.
