Blending makes it better
TN the test kitchen of a great
X soup maker, the gifted
master-chef creates the blend
of ingredients to produce the
perfect soup. In a scent-laden
room in a corner of France
an expert Mender of perfume
Invokes his highest genius that our sense of
smell may be gratified. In a work-room fragrant
with the aroma of many types of coffee beans, a
highly-paid specialist concentrates his energies
that we may be provided with a coffee blend to
please our palates. 'Whether it’s soup or soap,
tobacco or tea, music or mustard .. blending is
yital to the production of the best of each.
Equally as vital, if not first in importance, is
the knowledge and genius of the blender. He
must know how.
The best gasoline, too, is blended. In the proc-
esses of a modem refinery three types of gasoline
are produced. They are, Natural Gasoline,
Straight-run Gasoline, and Cracked Gasoline.
Each possesses certain desirable qualities neces-
sary for perfect motor operation ... but... no
one of them possesses all these wanted
So CONOCO Gasoline is a blend of the three.
There is Natural Gasoline, to give quickstartmg.
There is Straight-run Gasoline, to give power
and long-mileage. There is Cracked Gasoline,
with its desirable anti-knock quality. Just as
carefully as the perfume blender at his delicate
task, CONOCO refiners have developed their
balanced blend of these three ingredients. Theirs
is the gift of knowing how to merge the quali-
ties of the three gasolines to create a balanced,
triple-test fuel. One brand of coffee outsells
all others because of the expertness of its blender.
And so, with CONOCO Balanced-Blend Gaso-
line, the skill of the blender
accounts for the popularity
of the product. Stop today
at the sign of the CON-
OCO Red Triangle and
have your gas tank filled
with this better motor fuel.

Austin, Texas.—Compilations based
on farmers’ responses to the price of
cotton in December indicate that
acreage planted to cotton in the
United States in'1931 will be de-
creased^ between 7 and 8 per cent,
director of the Bureau of Business
Research at The University of Texas.
“The decline in the deflated price
of cotton from December, 1929, to
December, 1930, was 597 deflated
price points,” Dr. Cox said. “During
the past seven years, the variations
in the average December deflated
price has equaled 4,294 points, and
the total corresponding charges in
acreage have equaled 23,390,000
acres or 5,470 acres for each change
of one point in >the price. If those
average relations hold good for 1931,
the total acreage reduction will be
slightly over 3 1-4 million acres or
about 7.2 per cent.
“The price and yield of competing
crops and weather may affect cotton
acreage considerably. This year, the
price of corn, oats, wheat and most
other competing crops are relatively
higher than cotton. Moreover the
weather has been favorable for win
ter wheat and oats, so the plowing
up of these crops may be less than
usual. The weather at planting time
also has considerable influence on
final acreage. If it is unfavorable for
corn and spring oats land intended
for them will be planted to cotton,
for it can be planted later.”
POULTRY AS A PART OF
COMMON SENSE FARMING
By E. N. Holmgreen, A. & M.
The chicken is the smallest of do-
mestic animals, yet its size little in-
dicates its value. During the past sea-
sons drouth and low priced cotton the
farm flock prevented many farm
homes from facing an actual food
While egg and poultry prices in
1930 did not escape the general de-
pression, good profits were still made
by hundreds of farmers In Texas who
kept a flock of well-bred hens care-
fully cared for as a part of their
common sense method of farming.
About 287 such farmers, acting as
poultry demonstrators of the Exten-
sion Service and working with their
county and home agents in keeping
accurate records throughout the year
tell the story. They are but a small
part of the many farmers who have
found that chicken money is as good
as any other money.
Little but loud as far as profits go
would be an apt expression as the
year’s records on all these flocks re-
veal a profit of $1.80 per hen above
feed cost. Some are higher, some are
lower, but all of them showed a profit
and the profits were mighty welcome.
“Almost all we had to depend on
during the drouth,” some of them re-
marked, “bi-ought in as much as the
cotton crop,” said others, while they
all agreed that a good flock of hens
on the place is only common sense
Present egg prices leave little
profit and many thousands of hens
are being marketed daily. Hatcheries
report chick sales much reduced.
With fewer hens on farms and fewer
chicks being raised, fall prices should
return to normal. The farmer with a
good flock of pullets will be in posi-
tion to secure a nice profit.
