are now confronted with a big
taski of producing food for one-
fourth of the British people. This
need is the greatest for milk pro-
ducts, eggs, meat, vegetables, and
fats, County Agent Arvle Elliott
pointed out this week.
, "Widespread expansion is not
justified in some cases, but there is
a big opportunity for everyone to
produce more of these products
by improved management of the
present herds and flocks," he ex-
"In dairy cattle, for instance,
every farmer can produce great
quantities of milk above the pre-
sent levels simply by using better
feeding and management.
"Most farmers kept more hens
and pullets this year, and by close
attention to good management, eggs
can be increased easily.
"In all the livestock fields, the
prices are now favorable for more
attention to feeding the proper
ratiohs. Feed is high, especially the
protein feeds, but this is no time
to feed an unbalanced ration. The
higher the feed, the more impor-
tant that a good balanced ration
"The responsibility of supplying
the British and American people
with food is on the farmer, but
in supplying this food, the farmer
is going to find a profitable price
for his products," Elliott predicted.

TRUCKS IS STILL
AUSTIN—f. Thayer Stoddard,
head of the Texas .division of the
Public Roads Administration and
Director of the National Defense
Truck and Bus Inventory, is hav-
ing trouble with Uncle Sam's mail
delivery system which has return-
ed 20,000 questionnaires beeeuse of
improper address. ,
However, Stoddard estimated
that between seven and ten thou-
sand completed forms are being
returned each day. He urged truck
and bus owners who have failed
to receive questionnaires, through
change of address or otherwise, to
write the Highway Traffic Advisory
Committee, 607 Highway Building,
Lynn Shaw, General Manager of
the Texas Motor Transportation
Association, estimated that approx-
imately 20 percent returns have
been received since the inventory
began on October 5. The final
figures will show between 50 and
75 per cent of the trucks and buses
in the State, Shaw predicted.
Stoddard emphasized the impor-
tance of license numbers being in-
cluded with requests for question-!
naires. This is necessary, he said,
in order that a control file can be]
kept of each vehicle
The results of the inventory so j
far show that the percentage of
vehicles operated in fleets of two
or more is considerably higher
than previously estimatea, and may
reach 30 per cent.
Truck load limits in the 48 states
vary from 14,000 in Louisiana to
120,000 in Rhode Island.
