CIVIL RIGHTS, FEPC, AND POLITICS
On all sides ue heat much about the seriousness and importance of the choice the voters
of the United States will make November 4th in selecting the heads of the National Govern-
Granting that such issues as peace, defense, foreign policy, taxes and others must be given
great weight by the voters, it is well that those uho live in and love the South not go unin-
formed about nor fail to recognize the seriousness and possible consequences that could result
from the adoption by our Federal Government of the so-called "Civil Rights" Program which
has been strongly advocated and is still supported by many who hold or seek high places in
We believe that our readers will find the i. r.. analysis of this prograin by Mr.
Thurman Sensing of Nashville, Tennessee, iJ most inforiatire and timely.
The FEPC Is Purely Political
"The so-called Fair Employment Practices Commission, which the President re-
iterates his intention to enact into law, is not just a matter that concerns the South,
even though its previous enactment has been blocked by Southern Congressmen. It
is not just a question of preventing discrimination on account of race, creed, color,
or national origin, as its wording would profess. It is purely political in its conception
and in its intention, purely an appeal to minority groups for their votes at times of
elections, in fact an appeal to class, race, and religious prejudice.
"The whole civil rights program, which the Administration is so actively pro-
moting, is nothing more than window dressing for the intensive movement to further
centralize complete control over the lives of the people in a bureaucratic government.
It disguises motives with words, with words that deceive the uninformed and confuse
"To the credit of the people of the South and their representatives in the Halls
of Congress, it should be noted that it was the South that first realized there was
something much more fundamental involved than appeared on the surface in the pro-
posal to establish a permanent FEPC. This is why the whole matter has seemed to
many largely a Southern problem, since the race question was involved and since
there was such a large percentage of Negro population in the South. And while it is
true that the civil rights program would attempt to destroy the South's traditional
method of handling the race problem a method which they have found by years of
experience to be best for both races- yet there was something even more fundamen-
tal involved than race relations.
"What the proposal of a permanent FEPC boils down to is a direct violation,
an absolute denial of the fundamental principles on which our government is found-
ed and this holds true whether it is backed by the Democratic party or the Repub-
lican party or any other party. Professing to aid the individual, it denies freedom
to the individual. Professing to be concerned with human welfare, it destroys local
self-government. Without these two elements freedom of the individual and local
self-government we no longer have the democratic form of government on which
the whole progress of our nation has been based.
"How would a permanent FEPC deny freedom to the individual? Let us not
forget that if the government can assert the power to tell the employer whom he must
hire, it can also take the next step and tell the employee for whom he must work!
Then where is your individual freedom? How would it destroy local self-govern-
ment? Very plainly. The people of the South, for instance, do not object to any state
having its own FEPC, if the people of that state desire it. They do object to a great
region, representing one-third the people of the nation, having thrust down its throat
in the name of democracy a measure to which it is solidly opposed.
"There are indications now that the South will not stand alone in the next ses-
sion of Congress in its opposition to this iniquitous piece of legislation, that sound-
thinking people throughout the nation are beginning to realize this is a matter that
affects our whole national welfare.
"This may yet turn out to be the measure on which the lust for power of the
vote-seeking politicians will crash, on which the vaulting ambition of the proponents
of bureaucratic centralization of government will 'o'erleap itself.' It certainly will be,
once the American people see through the hypocrisy of the whole proposal, once they
realize what it would do to their way of life a way of life that has always given the
people more rights and more freedoms than any on the face of the earth."

For Our Youth Readers
Your Future Is What You Make It
NOTE: This is the fifth of a series of discussions on "Choosing Your Vocation." It
is of interest to both youth and parents.
In our former discussions we have considered the most important factors in
choosing and testing your choice of a vocation. In our last issue we began a study
of the preparation which is vital to success in any vocation. The importance of the
correct choice of courses in school and the effect that the record you make in school
has upon your future opportunities have been discussed, bringing us to the considera-
tion of the following additional elements of education and training.
Some Courses Are Musts
Some studies are essential, whatever
your work. All help to make you a
well-rounded, more versatile individual.
If you'd like to stand out from the usual
run of job applicants or farm plant op-
erators, practice until you can write neat-
ly and legibly. And if you want to ad-
vance, learn to express yourself in clear
and correct English.
A recent study showed that financial
success has a direct relationship to size
of vocabulary. By wide reading and by
making an effort to learn and use new
words, you can acquire a large vocabu-
Hand Training Is Brain Training
Although you may plan to enter pro-
fessional or managerial work, try to ac-
quire some hand skill also. The ability
of nearly all Americans to handle tools
efficiently has been one of the secrets of
this nation's production record. It has
been observed by Europeans coming into
this country that American adaptability is
in a large part due to training in doing
things with the hands that is given in the
early years of school. This is something
that textbooks alone can never give. One
may point out that three of the country's
greatest characters, Franklin, Jefferson,
and Lincoln, all excelled in practical arts
requiring dexterity with the hands. A
well known motto of our schools reiter-
ates the idea when it states that we learn
Your PerPonal OQalilies Count. Too
Have you known brilliant students
who were failures in life? Perhaps this
will give a clue to the reason.
Personal qualities of honesty, dependa-
bility, enthusiasm and cooperativeness are
as important as education, experience, or
even brilliance. A recent survey of em-
players showed that they placed "per-
sonality" first on their list of considera-
tions in hiring engineers. Salary request-
ed was rated lowest of all consideration.
A personnel manager recently stated:
"Of course we need intelligence, initia-
tive, ability and good health, but there
is entirely too much waste of these quali-
ties because of indifference or an unco-

Dr. DuPuis Honored as Florida Dairyman
Two years ago the Florida Dairy In-
dustry Association announced a desire to
honor the State's "Pioneer Dairyman",
which title was designated as meaning
the dairyman who had operated a dairy
in the state continuously for the longest
period of time.
At the 1952 Annual Convention in
Miami Beach, Dr. John G. DuPuis,
founder and President of the White Belt
Dairy Farms of Miami, stood as the un-
challenged contender for this honor with
a record of over 50 years of continuous
Dr. DuPuis, father of John DuPuis,
Jr., who is now manager of the White
Belt Dairy and a past president of the
Florida Dairy Industry Association, was
an honor guest at the closing luncheon
of the 1952 Annual Convention when he
was presented with a Special Certificate
of Recognition on behalf of the Florida
Dairy Industry and which is reproduced
on this page.
In responding to the presentation of
the award, Dr. DuPuis, now 75, re-
counted in a remarkable manner his 52
years' experience as Dr. DuPuis and Mr.
Dairyman for he has truly lived a double
life as a practicing physician and as man-
ager of his dairy until his son John Jr.
was able to relieve him of the responsi-
bility of the dairy.
Dr. DuPuis said that he went to
Lemon City, now in the north end of
Miami, at the age of 23 to begin his
practice as a young doctor and became
interested in producing milk only after
finding that fresh pure milk was not
available in the area for his patients and
the children of the community. He told
how he added a few cows to the family
cow, which was the beginning of the
White Belt Dairy with its present prize
Dutch White Belt herd and a large pro-
cessine and distributing plant.
The most difficult problems which
confronted him in the operation of his
Dairy farm, Dr. DuPuis said, were those
caused by early herd diseases. He gave
much credit to the late Dr. J. V. Knapp,
who as Florida State Veterinarian led the
State in controlling cattle disease. His
own intense interest through the years in
the control of animal diseases is reflected
in the leadership of his son, John Jr.,
who has given recent years in live stock
disease control as a member of the Flor-
ida Live Stock Sanitary Board of which
he served until recently as Chairman.

AWARDED BY UNANIMOUS VOTE OF THE
1952 ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE AS-

Record Attendance, Program
Interest, Recreation and
Entertainment Contribute To
The largest attendance with a total
registration of 376 was not the only
record-breaking feature of the 1952 An-
nual Convention of the Florida Dairy
Industry Association, held June 11-13 in
the Miami Beach's fabulous new Casa-
There is something heart-warming in
the friendly homecoming atmosphere of
a Florida Dairy Industry Convention.
There is something genuine in the greet-
ings and friendly hand-clasps as both the
men and the ladies renew friendships
of previous meetings and enjoy new-
comers in an atmosphere of relaxation
and rest from routine work schedules
and in serious consideration of the var-
ious problems of the industry as pre-
sented on the program.
The pre-convention early-bird recep-
tion, held the evening before convention
opening and sponsored by the President
and Secretary as a new Convention Fea-
ture, proved to be a huge success. The
enthusiasm and good cheer engendered at
this evening-long open-house party car-
ried through the entire convention.
The outstanding success of this con-
vention, according to some, was the
splendid well-rounded program featuring
top speakers from all three of the Dairy
Industry's principal national associations
of producers, milk dealers and ice cream
manufacturers, several of our State Uni-
versity Dairy Department specialists, one
from the University of Illinois and some
of our own most successful Florida Dairy
leaders. The Program Committee, under
the chairmanship of the President-elect
Wilmer Bassett, certainly rang the bell
on this year's program.
Some considered the special all-day
farm tour of several of Miami's fine
dairy farms, pastures and plants the most
valuable feature ever included on an an-
nual meeting program. This portion of
the convention will be reported with
pictures in a special story in the next
issue of the Dairy News.
Those who were recreation-minded and
there were many of them, demonstrated
their ideas about what made the conven-
tion click by their heavy schedules of
swimming, golfing, boating and fishing.
The ladies, whose numbers increase at
each succeeding Florida Convention, were
high on the popularity poll of conven-
tion attractions and how they do help to
make any convention a success.
Now, to get the statistics out of the
way, we must back up the headlines of
this review by reporting the attendance
of 120 dairy representatives, 115 allied
trades, 107 ladies and 34 miscellaneous-
including guest speakers and advisory
members representing Universities,
Health Departments, County Agents,
Milk Sanitarians, Dairy Extension and
Research Departments, the State Depart-
ment of Agriculture, Live Stock Board,
Milk Commission, Florida Veterinary As-
sociation and others.
ALLIED TRADES SPONSOR
The Allied Trades Members, under the
leadership of their popular chairman O.
L. Bobo and President-elect Larry Hodge,
certainly left nothing more to be desired
for a complete and enjoyable entertain-
The "fellowship hours" held both
evenings on the ocean-front terrace and
pool deck were designated correctly. A
water show, wandering musicians, hill-
billy costumes, a wonderful buffet din-
ner followed by late dancing under the
moon over Miami", made the first even-
ing together a delightful event. The sec-
ond evening beginning with the popular
fellowship hour sponsored by the "Alli-
gator Club" was followed by the elab-
orate Annual Dinner and program in the
Morocco Club Room. Here again the Al-
One of the most beautiful settings on Miami Beach is this oceanfront pool-garden and deck which was the scene of the

rection of Jack Dew, Southern Dairies
CROWNING OF DAIRY MONTH QUEEN
The floor show was preceded by the
selection and crowning of Miss Mary
Butler of Miami as State Dairy Month
Queen. Miss Butler, a charming Miami
High School Senior, was sponsored by
the Miami Dairy Month Committee. She
was selected out of a field of five con-
testants representing Miami, Jacksonville,
Pensacola, Gainesville and St. Petersburg.
Miss Claire Chestnut of Jacksonville,
sponsored by the Jacksonville Jaycee
Dairy Month Committee, was named
Maid of Honor to the Queen and popu-
lar Mrs. Louella Hood of St. Petersburg,
held to be ineligible to compete in the
Dairy Month Queen Contest, was desig-
nated "Queen of the 1952 Convention."
Two other contestants, Miss Mary Good-
bred of Gainesville and Miss Jane Nowak
of Pensacola received special awards and
were designated "Maids to the Queen."

New Teaching Plan
DR. H. H. WILKOWSKE
Assistant Professor of Dairy Manufacture
The Department of Dairy Science of
the University of Florida will inaugurate
a revised teaching plan in its dairy man-
ufacturing curriculum beginning this
Fall. The plan has been discussed by
noted educators throughout the United
States for several years but it is believed
that the University of Florida is the first
to adopt in its entirety the completely
new idea of teaching dairy science courses.
Basic courses in market milk, ice
cream, butter, cheese and condensed milks
will no longer be taught as individual
courses. Instead, the
subject matter will
be presented in com-
prehensive courses in
technology in which
each dairy product "s
will be considered
as the various funda- a
mental are discuss- DR. WILKOWSKE
ed. The introduc- I
tory course to all dairy science courses
and the judging course will remain un-
changed, as will the dairy problems and
dairy seminar courses.
Under the new plan much more com-
prehensive studies can be presented as
well as better continuity and sequence of
subject matter maintained. A saving of
time will be gained which in turn can be
devoted to elective courses which will be
selected on the basis of individual student
desires as to the type of career for which
he plans to prepare himself. Thus, dairy
students interested in business in dairying
may elect additional courses in business
management, accounting, speech and law.
Those interested primarily in the techni-
cal and research phases of dairying may
elect additional courses in chemistry,
mathematics, physics and bacteriology. It
is believed this new approach to the di-
versified interests of students will result
in a more highly specialized, yet well-
rounded, educational program tailored for
the particular needs and desires of each

the dates for the 1952 three-day Dairy
Herdsmen's Short Course.
Dr. R. B. Becker is in charge of the
program which will emphasize "Feeds

previous years on raising dairy replace-
ments, and dairy herd management.

There will be a period for questions and
Registration will be at 8:30 A.M. on
August 26, in the Dairy Products Labor-
atory on the University of Florida cam-
pus, Gainesville. The sessions will con-

A communication to Florida Dairies
from the Milk Production and Dairy
Husbandry Committees of the Dairy
Association states that these committees
strongly endorse this splendid training
course and urge every Dairyman who can
possibly do so to send his herdsmen and
future herdsmen to participate in this
three-days of intensive training.
GEORGIA'S DR. HENDERSON
HEADS DAIRY SCIENCE ASSN.
Dr. R. B. Becker of the University of
Florida Dairy Science Department has re-
ported the election of Dr. H. B. Hender-
son, head of the Dairy Science Depart-
ment, University of Georgia, to the presi-
dency of the American Dairy Science As-
sociation for the ensuing year.
Dr. Becker, a past president of A. D.
S. A., attended the 1952 Annual Meet-
ing of the Association June 24-26 at the
University of California. Dr. Becker re-
ports that the attendance of nearly 700
members was from 30 states, Canada and
The program included 36 subjects on
Dairy Manufactures, 69 on Dairy Pro-
duction subjects, and 12 topics on exten-
sion methods, adult education, D.H.I.A.
Production Testing and Artificial Breed-
Dr. Becker has made a detailed digest
of the conference program but says that
after listening to over 100 technical re-
ports and discussions on the new things
that have been learned by Dairy Science
throughout the nation in the course of
only one year, there is one simple con-
clusion that comes to one's mind as he
tries to assimilate and comprehend all
that he has heard. This conclusion, he
said, is that "Science Marches On."
U. OF FLA. PROF. KRIENKE
ON NATIONAL PROGRAM
Professor Walter A. Krienke of the
Dairy Science Staff of the University of
Florida has been invited to appear on the
program of the In-
tion of Ice Cream
Manufacturers at its
convention in Chica-
go, September 22-

enke is to discuss
the new ice cream
flavors which he and
KRIE E Dr. Leon E. Mull
KRI E have developed.
Those attending the plant managers' pro-
gram of the Florida Annual Meeting in
Miami Beach had an opportunity to
sample some of these new flavors on that
occasion, which was the first time they
were revealed to the Industry.

The F.F.A. 1952 State Convention at
Daytona Beach in June voted a Special
Award to C. H. Willoughby of Gaines-

NEW "BELL COWs" SELECTED
Dean of the Florida Dairy Industry
Association, Alf Nielsen, who also is
President of the Association's Honor So-
ciety, "The Exalted Order of Bell Cows",
announced and installed three new mem-
bers. The Order of Bell Cows was start-
ed a few years ago when Alf Nielsen
became lonesome in his position as
"Dean" and selected a partner in Past
President Ernest Graham.
The following year the two came up
with a plan for enlarging their exclusive
two-member club into an honorary lead-
ership group which would honor with
membership from time to time those who
have demonstrated outstanding leadership
on behalf of the Dairy Industry. The new
members installed for 1952 were: Col.
B. F. Castle, Executive Director of the
Milk Industry Foundation; Dr. E. L.
Fouts, Head of the Dept. of Dairy
Science, University of Florida; and Mr.
Theo Datson, the immediate Past Presi-
dent of the Florida Association. There
are now ten members of the group.

State Dairy Supervisors Are Recognized For
Important Role In Dairy Development
In the first article of this series, tribute was paid to work of the honorable Nathan Mayo, Com-
missioner of Agriculture, and Professor John M. Scott, Chief Dairy Supervisor, in the establishment
and operation of the Dairy Department of the State Department of Agriculture, an organization
which has contributed much toward the development of Florida's important Dairy Industry which
is estimated to have an annual retail sales volume of over $150,000,000.00. As the Industry has
expanded, the services of the personnel of the Dairy Department have been vitl to its success in
maintaining the high standards required by the regulatory legislation applying to the production,
processing, and distribution of milk and milk products. These are principally the Florida Milk
and Milk Products Law and the Florida Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts Law.
The six dairy supervisors pictured
above are specially trained to be of as-
sistance to the dairy farmer, the proces-
sor, and the distributor. This means that
they must be versatile, as their field of
inspection and aid includes sanitation,
animal diseases, pastures and their culti-
vation, as well as building, mechanical
and electrical engineering as related to
the construction and equipment of dairy
farms and plants.
Lewis T. Smith was the first of the
supervisors selected to assist Mr. John
Scott in the important work of his de-
partment. A native of South Dakota, he
was educated in Walton County, Florida
schools and the University of Florida. He
had practical experience in a milk plant
and is well acquainted with all phases of
plant operation. Mr. Smith served as
president of the Florida Association of
Milk Sanitarians in 1951.
Alex G. Shaw, native Floridian, was
employed as City Milk Inspector for the
City of Jacksonville following his gradu-
ation from the University of Florida.
During World War I. he inspected dairies
and milk plants from Florida to New
York wherever the Army drew its sup-
ply of milk. He has been with the de-
partment since 1930.
Dr. H. H. Rothe is a graduate in both
Veterinary Medicine and Animal Hus-
bandry and for a number of years taught
Bacteriology at the University of Georgia.
A native of Texas, he came to Florida
during the boom days and joined the de-
partment in 1937.
Combining his dairy supervisor's work
with the inspection of gasoline, pure
food, eggs, and poultry, J. W. Saunders
does all the work of the State Department
of Agriculture at Key West. After at-
tending a short course in dairying at the
University of Florida, he had held train-
ing before starting work in 1949.
John D. Robinson, born and reared in
Plant City, was employed as a Milk Sani-
tarian with the Hillsborough County
Health Detpartment before joining the
staff in 1950.
R. R. Hood has owned his own dairy
business and milk plant in Pensacola and
served as Milk Inspector there for sev-
eral years, coming to the State Depart-
ment in the Fall of 1951.

IMPROVING HERD HEALTH
The monetary value of products de-
rived from dairy cattle is greater than
that received for products coming from
any other species of live stock. The dairy-
man, therefore, must, of necessity, be
aware of the role that disease prevention
plays in his operation because a profit-
able dairy enterprise cannot be realized
unless herd health is maintained at a
high level. To verify this statement, it
is necessary to make mention of five
diseases tuberculosis, brucellosis, mas-
titis, milk fever and breeding difficulties.
The control of tuberculosis is based
on programs operated by the State and
Federal Agencies, and involves the per-
iodic testing of dairy herds to prevent
the spread of infection, should it acci-
dentally be introduced into a herd. Even
though tuberculosis in dairy animals has
been reduced to a low incidence by the
eradication program, the fact that the
disease is still diagnosed points out that
vigilance against the disease must be
maintained. Infected animals may not
show outward signs of the disease and
may appear to be in perfect health. Un-
less cattle are tested periodically, the
disease may make extensive inroads in a
herd without its presence being suspected.
Brucellosis has not succumbed to an
eradication program as has tuberculosis.
Although much is known about Bang's
disease, much remains to be learned be-
fore information regarding the condition
is complete. Some of the modes of spread
of brucellosis, such as contact with the
infected aborted calf, have been recog-
nized for many years. The symptoms of
the disease are not always well defined,
however. For example, the best known
symptom, the premature birth of the
young, does not always occur. A con-
siderable amount of research, therefore,
is still being conducted with particular
reference to finding better immunizing
agents, and also in the development of
antibiotics or other drugs that may prove
effective in eliminating Brucella infec-
tions, once an animal becomes infected.
At the present time the only recourse at
the disposal of the dairyman is to have
his herd blood tested annually so that
infected animals may be detected.
Mastitis is another condition about
which the dairyman has heard consider-
able comment. The financial losses due
to the disease are often underestimated
because death of the animal seldom re-
sults from the infection. Instead, there
is substantial and permanent decrease in
milk production; and this, in some herds,
is not as obvious a financial loss as is
death of an animal. Mastitis, which
means an inflammation of the mammary
gland, may be so mild as to go unde-
tected by the dairyman and yet be capable
of destroying the glandular tissue of the
udder. When the inflammation has sub-
sided, the udder tissue has been replaced
by scar tissue. This accounts for the
nodular condition so often found in
udders of cows that they have been in
production for several years. Several pre-
disposing factors are responsible for the
onset of mastitis flare-ups. Chief among
these are improper milking, such as leav-
ing the milking machine on the cow too
long, and injury to the teat or quarter.
The control of mastitis in a dairy herd
is essentially a management problem in-
volving precautions to prevent the spread
of infection from infected to healthy ud-
ders. In an effort to accomplish this
purpose, infected animals should be
milked last, and those having incurable
cases of the disease should be disposed
of at the earliest possible time.
Milk fever is a condition that gen-
erally affects high-producing cows. The
condition is generally observed shortly
after calving and is characterized by
paralysis and a comatose condition. The
cause of the ailment concerns a derange-
ment in calcium metabolism resulting
from the onset of lactation. Medication
with a calcium salt, especially in the in-
itial stages, usually gives spectacular re-
covery. Adequate mineral supplements
may lessen the incidence of the disease
Systematic Feeding Pays
As a guide and aid to Florida Dairy-
men and Dairy Plants in more efficient
and successful operation, the Florida
Dairy Industry Association adopted an 8-
point efficiency program for recommen-
dation to all the Florida Dairy Industry
The 8-points which are based on rec-
ommendations from various active com-
mittees of the Association are as follows:
1. Improve dairy pasture and feed pro-
2. Practice individual and improved
3. Keep adequate indi-
vidual and herd records.
4. Follow definite herd
5. Strive for top qual-
6. Work for improve-
mend of herd health.
7. Use efficient pro-
cessing and distribution
8. Give more attention
to "Public Relations."
The purpose of the 8-Point Program
is aimed at efficient, economic production
and marketing of high quality milk and
milk products. The slogan of the pro-
gram is "Efficiency and Quality Pay."
in a herd. Milk fever is no longer a
condition that the dairymen need dread,
but they must be alert to diagnose the
ailment in its initial stage.
Dairymen in this state have become
recognizant of the fact, either through
personal experiences or from the exper-
iences of fellow dairymen, that brucello-
sis can no longer be designated as the
culprit causing all sterility and reproduc-
tive conditions of dairy cattle. Vibriosis,
trichomoniasis and leptospirosis are three

MILK COMMISSION LOSES
IN SUPREME COURT RULING
The Supreme Court has held the long
disputed Tampa milk price increase of
over a year ago invalid on the grounds
of insufficient evidence regarding the
cost of milk production in the area.
Milk producers of the area have an-
nounced that they wil petition the Milk
Commission for a new hearing for the
purpose of filing additional cost infor-
mation. They still contend that the price
increase ordered by the Milk Commission
was justified and will welcome a further
opportunity to prove it.
The Milk Commission is now defend-
ing in Orlando court its order of several
weeks standing in which it refused to
approve a price increase that had been
requested by the milk producers of that
A group of Orlando producers have
brought the action in court attempting
to prove that the evidence which they
submitted to the Commission entitled
them to a price increase.
MILK FOUNDATION HEAD SAYS
MILK PRICE VS. WAGES
SHOWS 69% DECREASE
Col. Benj. F. Castle, Executive Di-
rector of the Milk Industry Foundation,
national organization of Milk Dealers,
surprised Florida's price-conscious milk
Distributors and Dairymen when, in his
address before the Annual Convention,
he advised them to "discard price shy-
ness" and "go on the offensive" in tell-
ing milk consumers the real facts about
today's price of milk as related to other
inflated costs and inflated incomes.
"The facts are," he said, "that a com-
parison of the relative increase in the
price of milk and increased incomes dur-
ing the past 10 years shows that a quart
of milk in 1942 cost the same as today
in actual money value. In other words,
milk has not advanced in relative cost
in 10 years."
"It requires 69% less time in 1952 for
the average worker to earn a quart of
milk than it did in 1912. In other
words, it took 25.2 minutes at average
wages in 1912 to earn a quart of milk,
while today it takes only 7.8 minutes."
"This is an important story to tell
your customers," Col. Castle said. "This,
plus the fact that the price of milk has
not increased nearly as much as all other
foods combined, should be shouted from
the house-tops. Instead of being shy
about talking up the price of milk, it
should be advertised along with the
matchless qualities of nature's most near-
ly perfect food, milk," he concluded.

Editor, Florida Dairy News:
I read many trade press magazines and
association publications. You will be in-

The Dairy Industry always has been
one of my hobbies-not that I am not
interested in all the other agricultural
industries that come under our Depart-

This magazine is full of good food
for thought, and I want to congratulate
those who are doing this outstanding job.
With warm personal regard and best
wishes, I am

DE LAVAL COMBINE MILKER
Mr. Isaac Shakarian and his son, Mr. Demos Shakarian, owners
and operators of the Reliance Dairy Farm at Downey, Calif., use
the De Laval Model F Combine Milking System to milk their
1,000-cow herd. We'll let their letter speak for itself:
"I have always believed in giving credit where credit is due-
and your company certainly deserves credit for saving me a lot of
time and money with the new De Laval Model F Combine
"We are saving labor since switching to De Laval. This is a
substantial item in itself; but coupled with this is the satisfaction
of a more efficient, modern operation.
"We operate a 1,000-cow dairy and efficiency is important.
Thanks to a fine job of installation by your dealer, Brown Brothers
of Bellflower, we are now able to machine-milk 120 head of cows
that previously had to be milked by hand, thus our operators are
now freed of drudgery chores and can handle 75 cows each with ease.
"Our veterinary bill has shown a big reduction, and the sanitary
problem is greatly simplified due to the new circulating washup
system incorporated in the De Laval installation."
The De Laval Model F Combine Milking System can save time
and money for you, too. Why not send for full information today?

Escambia County's First Annual Farm Tour
Attracts 375 Farmers and Business Men
A large part of Escambia County's 60 Dairymen joined with the County Farm
Bureau and the Pensacola Chamber of Commerce on June 26th in staging one of
the largest attended and most extensive one-day farm tours ever held in the State
of Florida, according to a special report to the Dairy News from E. N. Stephens,
Escambia County Farm Agent.
An estimated 375 who participated in the deluxe tour traveled over 150 miles
mostly by bus, covering practically the entire agricultural, dairy and livestock areas
of the County, Mr. Stephens said.
Twelve farms were visited which were
considered most representative of the
best and most modern of Escambia Coun-
ty's $4,000,000.00 agricultural industry.
Among these was the Foster Brothers
Dairy, selected as representative of the
county's 60 Dairy farms which maintain
over 2,000 dairy cows, producing milk
with a farm value of approximately
$750,000.00 annually. Mr. Stephens said
the Foster Brothers Dairy, one of the
largest in the area, was an eye-opener
to many of the business men on the tour
who little realized the enormous invest-
ment required for the operation of a
modern dairy. Here they saw a herd of
400 dairy animals, representing an in-
vestment in animals alone of over $120,-
000.00. Adding to this the investment
in land and equipment made it plain
to understand that a large responsibility
goes with the ownership and operation
of a dairy farm.
The County Dairy Association coop-
erated in the tour by providing milk and
ice cream for luncheon which was served
at one of the farms.
Other agricultural projects of special
interest on the tour was the growing of
soy beans, corn, cotton, peanuts, potatoes,
some of the world's finest pasture grasses
and beef cattle feeding.
Grasses of special
sacola Bahia, Coastal
Red Clover, and the
Argentine Bahia grass
interest were Pen-
largest planting of
in the world.
Some of the modern equipment seen
were grain storage bins, two of which
were equipped with heat and air to pro-
vide mechanical drying of grain and seed
crops. Also equipment for grass hay cut-
ting, bailing and loading.

EXCERPTS FROM LETTERS
Friends of the group will be interested in the following information from their
"We have had a great trip . an interesting day every day since we left
Florida . one day in Washington, D. C. as guests of the National 4-H Camp,
visited White House and the USDA Agricultural Research Center at Beltsville, Md.
We visited herds in Maryland and New Jersey enroute."
"We are learning a lot of agriculture and the dairy breeds and dairying as done
here. Tomorrow we visit Ayrshire herds in the County of Ayr, Scotland (birthplace
of the breed and its headquarters) with representatives of the Ayrshire Association
... The team is enjoying our trip."
"We have seen a great deal of Ireland, Scotland and England. The British
Royal Agricultural Show here is an immense show-119 acres mostly under tents.
We are leaving tomorrow (July 4) for London . We visited the exhibit booths
of all the breed associations and of the Milk Marketing Board, and the Milk Records
Association. Also, we were in a favored position at the exhibit of the Ministry of
Agriculture when the Queen came through. We think we got some good pictures
of the Queen but Lawton was not in 'kissing distance'.
"Our next trip is to the Jersey Islands and the Isle of Guernsey . Young
people on the International Youth Program are here from South Africa, Canada,
Australia, and New Zealand."
"We visited the Shakespeare Region at Stratford-on-Avon enroute from Scotland
to here (Newton Abbot, England)."

Except for the development of the
milking machine, dairy farming as it is
usually practiced is very little different
from that of 25 years ago. During that
time practically all other lines of farm
production have been mechanized and
improved so that the production per
worker, and the rate per hour has been
at least doubled, and in many cases in-
creased several times. Consequently,
dairying has not been attractive to young
people, and the average age of milk pro-
ducers in this country is 55 years or
A new system of producing milk has
been developed based on improved
forages, grown and fed on the farm, and
platform, pipeline milking parlors, which
greatly reduces the labor requirements of
milking and handling cows and permits
milking a far greater number in a given
milking unit to correspond with the high-
er production capacity of improved grass-
Efficient production of milk should be
based largely on improved forages, fed
as pasture, or hauled green to the cows,
or fed as silage and hay.
Cows can secure most of their nutrients
for milk production from these improved
forages. The usually recommended ratios
for feeding grain to milk produced of 1
pound of grain to 3 to 4 pounds of milk,
can be cut in half or more with little
impairment in production, and with con-
siderable increase in proft and longevity
of the cows.
The visits that I have made to out-
standing farms and the Experiment Sta-
tion at Gainesville in Florida, showed me
that there are a number of high quality
forage legumes and grasses that can be
grown in combination that will supply
these greatly enlarged forage needs.
The grasses include Pangola, common
and Pensacola Bahia, St. Augustine grass,
Coastal Bermuda grass, and Para grass.
The legumes include Louisiana White
Dutch Clover, Hop Clover, Kenland
Clover, Hubam Clover, Peruvian Alfalfa,
and Gregon Giant Birdsfoot Trefoil.
This list is not inclusive, and the adapta-
tion of individual varieties varies with the
soil and the region in Florida but there
are still plenty to make a good grass-
The most interesting development that
I saw on this trip was the practice at
the Hall and Boyd Farm near Miami,
where a very complete legume-grass mix-
ture, heavily fertilized with a 6-6-6 an-
alysis at the rate of one ton per acre per
year, is chopped in the field each day
and hauled in self-feeder cage wagons to
the feed lot for the cows. This system
greatly increases the cow carrying capac-
ity per acre of an improved pasture be-
cause there is no tramping or manure
contamination of the grass. It has noth-
ing to do but grow without interference,
protected as it is by this "KEEP OFF
THE GRASS" practice. While Hall and
Boyd are chopping their forage, equally
as good, and possibly cheaper results
could be secured by loading feeding
wagons with fresh cut long grass by
means of a Booster Buck rake. The cows
probably would produce more milk on
long than chopped forage, since results
in England and New Zealand show that
long grass silage is about 10 per cent
better than chopped grass silage.
There is no question but that improved
grasses fed as pasture, or on a soilage
basis, or as grass silage, if abundantly
fertilized can supply most of the nutrient
needs of dairy cows on farms having
sufficient acreage to grow these forages.
That kind of milk production with the
emphasis on more forage and less grain
will mean more milk, more profits, and
longer lived cows. It could go far to-
wards solving the problem of increased
milk consumption in Florida, and adapt-
ed to other regions in the U. S. would
solve the problem nationally.
The Dairy Industry then could win
back its market from competing products
and add many million of dollars to the
income of milk producers and build a

The Dairy Industry-producers and dealers alike, are faced with the problem
of more milk if sales are to be increased. It sounds almost
too simple to be true but more milk cannot be sold than
Milk production nationally has stood about still-actually
declined a little-while our population is increasing 21/2 million
per year. This means that other foods are replacing milk and
dairy products in the housewife's budget for refreshment drinks
and desserts. The industry cannot afford to permit this condition
to continue when actually per capital consumption should be in-
creased one-third for proper nutrition.

cattle and hog disease prevention and
control in the state.
He directed the tick eradication
through the early twenties, when com-
pulsory cattle dipping was one of the
hottest political questions of the day, and

BEVILLE AND ALVAREZ DAIRIES
SHARE TOP EFFICIENCY HONORS
According to C. W. Reaves of the
University of Florida, Buckeye Dairy, op-
erated by J. W. and R. D. Beville of
Daytona Beach, and A. T. Alvarez of.
Jacksonville were state winners in the
Efficient Dairy Production contest con-
ducted last year. It was sponsored by the
Dairy Herd Improvement Association.
Judging was based on herd records made
on DHIA test and improved farm and
herd practices carried out by the dairy-
men.' These included milk and butterfat
production records, increase over previ-
ous years, cost of production, production
of pastures and home-grown feeds, feed-
ing balanced rations, breeding program
for herd replacements, herd health, and
other improved practices.
The Alvarez Dairy is one of Duval
County's top dairies, as is indicated by
the fact that two sons of the owner, Ray
and Warren, are members of Florida's
National Champion 4-H Dairy Judging
Team which is now on a tour of Euro-
pean dairy countries by courtesy of the
Florida Dairy Industry and friends.

hundred and fifty broilers for meat, four-
teen beef calves, one pig, fifteen acres of
corn, eight acres of Hairy Indigo, one-
half acre of home garden, and seven acres

"I have shown some of my best Guern-

the 1951 Florida State Fair one of my
heifers was Reserve Champion female of

the 1952 State Fair, my oldest heifer,
Dinsmore Maxmost Estelle, was Grand

The price of milk has just been in-

serious drought conditions and increased
feed costs. This brings the price through-

In popular literature there has been,
and is considerable agitation to avoid all
processed foods and
S to obtain foods in as
natural a state as
possible. Milk is one
of the foods which
has been processed
in many ways. It has

methods of processing and storage make
possible the serving of fluid milk that
varies in age from a few hours to many
days or even months. In many sections
daily delivery has been discontinued and
delivery every other day or twice a week
initiated. During the tourist season milk
shipped into Florida is heated prior to
shipment and pasteurized by the regular
method after arrival in the state. Dry
and evaporated milks are processed by
heat and stored for varying lengths of
Since milk is still considered the most
important and necessary single food item,
any factor or factors that impair or de-
stroy its nutritive value should be known.
The effect of processing upon the nutri-
tive value of milk was studied by feeding
tests on white rats.
The rations used in these experiments
consisted of two-thirds ground whole
wheat and one-third milk, both computed
on the dry basis. The milks used were
raw and pasteurized, fed fresh and aged
for four days; non-fat milk solids also
fed fresh and aged over the summer
months without refrigeration, and evap-
orated milk. Vitamin A and fat were
added to diets containing non-fat milk
solids to bring these factors up to the
level found in whole fluid milk. The
supplementary fats used in these diets
were fresh and slightly rancid cottonseed
oil and butter.
As judged by weight, reproduction and
skeletal mineralization of rats, no signifi-
cant differences were found in the nutri-
tive values of raw or pasteurized milk,
evaporated milk, or of non-fat milk sol-
ids supplemented with vitamin A and
As shown by a decrease in weight
gains of rats, the nutritive value of the
non-fat milk solids-wheat diet was low-
ered when aged milk solids and slightly
rancid vegetable oil were fed as a part
of the milk-wheat diet. However, when
fresh milk solids and rancid oil were
used, weight gains were larger, but when
fresh milk solids and fresh oil were used,
the weight gains were approximately the
same as those made by rats fed fresh raw
milk and wheat.
There were no significant differences
in weights of rats when butter replaced
vegetable oil in the non-fat milk-wheat
Regardless of the type of milk fed in
the milk-wheat diets, healthy litters were
produced by all groups.
Roentgenograms made at the end of
13 weeks and again at maturity showed
that skeletal development and minerali-
zation of all rats fed the milk-wheat
diets were comparable to those of rats fed
the colony stock diet.
The final conclusion was that under
the conditions of these experiments and
when judged by weight, reproduction and
skeletal development and mineralization
of rats, the nutritive value of milk was
not affected by processing.

recently had the following to say regard-
ing farm operation costs:
"Don't figure on prices going down
this year. USDA has come up with an
estimate that you'll pay 5-10 percent
more for farm labor; 6-8 percent more
for farm machinery; 4-5 percent more
for fertilizer; five percent more for build-
ing and fencing materials; and 3-4 per-
cent more in taxes on real and personal
property. As if you didn't know it,
USDA also records that crop production
costs have ben rising steadily since 1938."
