SHORTAGE OF MEAT

fCantieuftd from Pat One.)
ment was made that 90 per cent of
the sheep fed last winter had already
been marketed and as a consequence
the receipts would necessarily be very
light for the next three or four
month. There was also a serious loss
of both sheep and lambs in the west
last winter. The spring lambing ses.
ion has been poor throughout the
country, which will cause shipments
to be much lighter next fall. .
Gravity of Situation Grows. -t
To supply the country with meat,
therefore, under the present condi
tions, to aay nothing of sending sup
plies abroad, presents a serious condi
tion, increased foreign demand only
increase the gravity of the situation
: Dean E. A. Burnett of the College
of Agriculture suggested that a prac
tical remedy for the hog situation
would be to advise farmer and
feeder to breed their sows for fall
litter. In this way immediate prog
ress could be made at very little ex
pense. Experience of the experiment
station shows this could be done at a
very good margin of profit, as during
the summer months hogs can be
handled and raised very cheaply, and
this wooia give immediate reuet.
He also ,. suggested that some
, method be provided to utilize the
stubblefields and ' roughness that
usually- goes to waste. Nebraska
could easily handle million more
sheep during the months of August,
September and October at a very
little expense by utilizing these fields,
lie tnougnt. ,.
' , , Corn i Scarce.
President Daniel Morris of the Ne
hraska State Bankers' association ex
plained that cattle feeders in his
country were having trouble to get
corn, and that they were marketing
their cattle on this account He also
said the banks in his town were doing
all they could to encourage farmers
in buying breeding stock, and that the
banks in Kearney were furnishing
money to all. reliable people who
wanted to increase their live stock
holdings. ' :
' Prof. Pugsley, at whose invitation
the meeting was held, urged the
necessity of immediate action and
gave some figures to rhow it was
. necessary that live stock be run on
the farms of Nebraska. A personal
friend of his in German" had declared
that the German war would be fought
and Won on American wheat fields,
with German potash as fertilizer.
, Prof.. Fueslev remarked that with
ample stock raising. Germany would
not have a look-in with its commercial
fertilizer; that the farmers should pay
more attention to diversified farming
and by that means keep continually
tertilizing tne ground.

Governor Urges County
Defense Councils Be Formed
(Prom a BUff Correspondent.)
Lincoln. Neb., May 4. (Special.)
Every man in the country has a duty
to perform, is the opinion of Gov
ernor Keith Neville. It may not be

his or her share either by actual work
or sacrifice in helping along the cause
which taces the people of the state.
The governor issued an appeal to
the public today in which he asks
that country defense councils be
formed. . .
"The need, at this time, for organi
zation, the0 better ; to promote maxi
mum efficiency in the conservation
and development ot our resources
and to aid in bringing state and na
tion into closer relations so that we
may present a nation of united states,
Blended into a compact formidable
union with a common determination
to perpetuate its unity and a common
purpose ot action, must be apparent
to all. A national council of defense
has been established. In line with
this action, the legislature, at its re
cent session, provided for a state
council of defense. It is of the utmost
importance that this be followed by
perfecting, the organization of de
fense councils, consisting of not less
than five member in every county in
wenraska to co-operate and work in
conjunction with the state and na
tional councils upon all matters con
cerning the public welfare and the de-
tense of the nation during the con
tinuance of the war with Germany."
