The official designation of the newbreed is the "Lamona," named after its originator, Harry M. Lamon, seniorpoultryman in charge of poultry investigations.The Lamona breed of fowls has white plumage, lays a white-shelled egg,and is a good meat producer. Thus far the breeds which lay white-shelledpggs have been poor meat producers, and in sections where commercial eggproduction has been developed it often happens that while there are plentifulsupplies of eggs the supply of poultry meat is deficient. The Lamona breedhas a red ear lobe, which readily distinguishes it from the White Leghorn. ItIs also larger.The idea of developing the breed originated with Mr. Lanion, who had chargeof the project throughout and made every mating. In naming the breed afterIts originator the bureau has taken a course similar to that often followed innaming a new species of bacillus, insect, or plant after the name of the scientistwho discovers it. The Secretary of Agriculture has approved "Lamona" asthe official designation of the new breed.
