Increased returns from Oklahoma
farm production amounting: to $2,629,-
360 a year may be secured if the pro-
duction of every hen in the state is
augmented by one egg a month, if the
statement made by President F. M.
Gault of the state board of agricul-
ture in a circular letter to county
farm agents and others urging orga-
nization, under the new poultry law,
of a bourd in each county of the state
for the holding of an annual county
The Jackson poultry law provides
there should be held in each school
house out side cities of the first class
in each county, during the last week
in November, a combined poultry and
egg show and in the last week of Jan-
uary an egg show, and in these shows
there should be no exhibitors except
those actually raised and produced by
the school children attending each re-
spective school houses.
This law makes available for this
purpose a minimum of $5, and if the
district board of any particular school
district so orders, a maximum of $10.
To impress the value of this move-
ment President Gault refers to the
United States census of 1910 giving
the following figures:
Average yearly egg production of the
Oklahoma hen 54
Average number of hens in the Okla-
homa farm flock 50
Average number of farms in each
school district 36
If, through the interest created by
the school shows, egg production of
the state is increased only one egg a
month for each hen, the egg produc-
tion would increase 50 dozen eggs to
the average farm flock and at 25 cents
a dozen, with 30 farms in the aver-
age school district, this would repre-
sent a return of $450. As there are
5,843 school districts, it may be seen
that the minimum increase of one egg
a month for each hen would augment
the annual return from the poultry
yards of Oklahoma to the amount of
$2,629,350, whereas the probability is
that this would be increased by sev-
The law provides that during the
week commencing the first Monday in
December, there is to be held a coun-
ty show in each county and an ap-
propriation of $250 is made for such
show. During the second week of De-
cember an annual state show is to be
held located this year at Elk City, for
which $2,000 of state money has been
appropriated, and 60 per cent of this
$2,000 as well as 60 per cent of the
$250 for each county, i3 set aside for
the junior department, and in the jun-
ior departments of those county and
state shows nothing but poultry and
eggs actually raised and produced by
the school children of the state can

Oakland Sensible Six
HIS new Oakland Sensible Six represents the most effective combination of hi^h
power, light weight, full comfort and definite economy yet accomplished in a motor
It is an all-family, all-purpose car—simple in design, strong in construction, exceed-
ingly powerful in action—capable of enduring severe and constant daily service with a
minimum of wear and upkeep cost.
Oakland owners' records show for it such economies as from 18 to 25 miles to the
gallon of gasoline under ordinary driving conditions, and from 8,000 to 12,000 miles from
the oversize tires with which it is regularly equipped.
In all its fundamentals this new Oakland Sensible Six is a continuation of the car up-
on which Oakland has specialized for two years.
Today, not one part or detail of it remains untried or unproven.
Let us Demonstrate it for vou.
