Eggs," We Are Playing our Part.
"Under the auspices of the Nation-
al Poultry Council a Proclamation
has been issued setting aside May
1st to 7th inclusive, 1928 as "Nation-
al Egg Week." This is the third
year that this national egg celebra-
tion has been staged in this way at
this time. State Committees have'
be^n organized in every state in the1
union and a real worth-while program;
is being developed to make this eel- (
ebration nation-wide and of real ben-;
efit to the great consuming popula-
tion of America.
The 1928 slogan for "National
Egg Week" is "Eat Eggs for Vitam-'

The fundamental part of "Nation-
al Egg Week" celebration will con-
sist of nation-wide publicity through-
out the newspapers of the country.
Short snappy stories in farm papers,
metropolitan dailies, poultry jour-

will be pleased to provide you with
the understanding that you use your
influence in getting them published
extensively and commented upon dur-
ing "National Egg Week."
Local merchants, producers, ship-
pers and other persons interested in
the poultry and egg industry are
planning to do co-operative poultry
advertising during "National Egg
Week," setting forth the aims and
purposes of the celebration at the
same time that they carry their own
advertising copy. This has been done
in previous years very successfully.
The National Poultry Couacil has
prepared excellent radio messages
which together with other similar ad-
dresses prepared by local state com-
mittees will be placed on the air by
the members of the various State
Committees and others interested in
the aims and purposes of the celebra-
tion during the progress of it. There
is not a broadcasting station in the
country, if approached regarding the
matter, who will not be glad to put
these messages on the air.
