I Winter Eggs Can Yield Profits
i here are special problems that beset the poultryman in mid
winter. But this is just when good management can turn prob
able losses into sure profits.
Hens need water nearly as <
much in the winter as in the sum
mer. To keep water from freez
ing, an electric water system
using heating tape is a good in
vestment. Regardless of the type
used, the waterer should be high
enough from the floor to prevent

fault during winter months is
overcrowding. A recent study of
space requirements for laying
flocks, approved by poultry hus
bandry departments of all 48
land grant colleges, recommends
S to 4 feet of floor space per bird,
including roosting pit; also 6 to 7
inches per bird of roost space
(heavy birds may require more).
Four linear inches of feeder
space and one individual box-nest
per five birds were suggested as
a minimum. —

allow as much room as possible to

depends also on the birds getting
plenty of light. Ample window

Poor sanitation is a widespread

U.S. Department of Agriculture
estimates a loss of 30% to 40%
in income from chickens infested
with parasites. Frequent stirring
of litter with hydrated lime and
use of insecticide on birds and in
roosts are helpful.
Finally, a good winter feeding
program includes all ingredients
necessary to good health. For
best results, use packaged feeds
containing a balanced formula.
As a postscript, it is suggested
that flocks be rigidly culled of
weak or sickly birds and eggs

Tabasco Takes To Chafing Dish
Chafing dish meals are popular this time of year, for they bring
warmth and hospitable odors of good things cooking right to the
table. Try this Easy Tomato Cheese Rabbit now, and keep the
recipe handy for frequent Lenten use.
Cheese, an excellent source of protein, is inclined to be bland,
and you’ll find that proper seasoning does much to improve its
acceptance. T\obubly the one best seasoner is Tabasco, the liquid
pepper from down south, aged and concentrated so that just a
small amount picks up bland dishes and puts them into gourmet

Florida Orange Juice Travels
Whether the lunchbox is bound for school, factory or office, it's
■ good idea to include Florida orange juice. Working men and
women t3 well as children need the energy and vitamin C the
tasty juice provides. Put enough in the thermos container for a
mid-morning pickup as well as a lunchtime treat.
From every five pounds of Florida juice oranges you'll get at
least ono quart of flavorful juice, thanks to their thin steins. Protect
your family’s health by serving orange juice daily.

Who Uses Lean Beef
Now is the time of lean beef, the grass-fed, more economical beef
that comes right from the range. Lean beef makes wonderful dishes
when braised or simmered. Meat Pie is typical of this culinary
school. The longer cooking characteristic of beef pie brings out all
the rich flavor and juiciness of the lean beef. And remember, it
contains the same high quality complete protein, B vitamins and
essential minerals as costlier cuts.
1H pounds lean beef (boned 2 tablespoons chopped celery
chuck, round, flank or rump) leaves
2 teaspoons salt 2 sprigs parsley
% teaspoon pepper 12 small white onions, peeled
3 tablespoons flour 3 medium carrots, scraped
1 tablespoon bacon drippings and quartered
3 cups water *Biscuit topping
Have beef cut in 1-inch pieces. Blend together 1 teaspoon of the
salt, pepper and flour; roll pieces of meat in blended mixture.
Brown meat in bacon drippings. Add water, chopped celery, parsley
and remaining 1 teaspoon of the salt. Cover; simmer approximately
2 hours until meat is almost tender. Add onions and carrots. Cover
and cook until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. To thicken
mixture; blend 1 tablespoon flour with M cup cold water. Add a
small amount of the hot liquid, then quickly stir into the meat
mixture. Turn into casserole. Cover with biscuit topping.
YIELD: 6 servings.
1% cups sifted all purpose flour % teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder 4 tablespoons lard
H cup milk
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into bowl. Cut in lard until
well mixed. Add milk, stirring quickly until a soft ball is formed.
Turn on a lightly floured board and knead gently to shape into
smooth ball; roll lightly to % inch thickness and cut with star
shaped cookie cutter or floured biscuit cutter. Place on hot meat
mixture. Bake in a hot oven (425* F.) 20 to 25 minute*.

The busiest man in the world is
the fellow who attempts to idle
away his time.
The fellow who sponges his way
through life merely soaks up the
fruits of other’s labor.
The man who is left behind in
the race of life is not always the
last to reach his goal.
Motorists should remember that
even St. Christopher begins to
lose faith at 90 miles an hour.
It is very true that only about
one man in a million catches up
with that promising future.
History proves that people who
go to great lengths to find an
easy way out usually fall short.

Trainer Shows Students How to Avert Car Crashes
Whether an impending highway
crash turns into another disaster or
• near miss may depend on a driver's
behind-the-wheel prowess the instant
after the emergency develops.
In this split-second interval, many
drivers act instinctively—and often
what they do is wrong. Some panic,
let go of the wheel. Still others
freeze, do nothing.
While thousands of youths are
taught to drive in the nation's high
schools, they get precious little in
struction in meeting highway emer
Limited surveys of driver educa
tion programs show that trained
drivers have far fewer accidents than
those with no training. Good as this
record is, many safety educators—
like Dr. Herbert J. Stack of the Cen
ter for Safety Education at New
York University—believe it would
be even better if drivers were taught
what to do in highway emergencies.
Staging crash situations with real
cars to give student drivers practice
in meeting emergencies on the high
way would give any driver educa
tion instructor nightmares. Obvi
ously, such a program was out of
Now, however, many student driv
ers are receiving this vital training,
thanks to a revolutionary classroom
training device called the /Etna
Drivotrainer, which is being used
in an increasing number of high
schools throughout the ebuntry.
No Risk In Drivotrainer
But with the Drivotrainer, special
movies that show a driver’s eye
view of the road ahead bring the
highways into the classroom where
beginning drivers—without risk to
themselves or others—can learn how
to avert a crash.
In the Drivotrainer, which was
developed by the /Etna Casualty and
Surety Company, students take their
behind-the-wheel training in small
model cars which they learn to

would appear through the windshield
of a read car.
While the Drivotrainer course cov
ers everything from basic skills like
steering and shifting to more com
plex techniques like parallel parking
and making U and Y turns, one of
the 19 special training films is de
voted wholly to emergency training.
In this part of the course, students
experience a nerve-tingling scries of
potential accident situations on the
Drivotrainer's movie highways and

maneuvers that will avoid a crash.
By doing what cannot be done
with conventional training methods,
the Drivotrainer will help future
motorists to do spontaneously the
thing that will avert an accident
when they're on real highways.
First used in the New York City
schools, the Drivotrainer has since
