    Jerry Bookey Speaks at Nema Meeting
Jerry Bookey, president of
National Egg Producers, was
guest speaker at a conference in
Harrisburg sponsored by the
northeast Egg Marketing
Association (Nema).
President Bookey declared that
he has set one major goal for his
organization for the coming year.
It is to see that nothing is left
undone or unexplored that might
serve to improve next year’s cash
return on investment for egg
He outlined plans aimed at
aiding poultrymen in what he
termed four specific service
areas. “There will be strong
emphasis on: (1) price
discovery, (2) promotion, (3)

legislation, and (4) statistical
guidelines and communications.
U.E.P.’s staff will be beefed up to
meet thoese needs.”
Working directly on the
problem of communications, he
said that he had set himself the
immediate task of making visits
to each of the regional groups
within U.E.P. The Harrisburg
visit was one of the first of these
Bookey further pledged that
U.E.P. will work vigorously at
building industry unity in its
relationships with other poultry
Still stunned by the untimely
passing of Maurice Stein,
producers at the meeting heard
We re talking about AAtrex® in a liquified form.
We call it AAtrex 4L.
It needs no pre-mixing. Just shake and pour directly into
the spray tank.
With AAtrex 4L, you need only a minimum of agitation.
You can apply it in as little as 10 gallons of water per acre.
And when you do apply it, there’s less chance of nozzle
and screen plugging.
But the important thing is, AAtrex 4L gives you control of
most annual grasses and broadleaf weeds. Foxtails as well as
cocklebur, pigweed, velvetleaf, ragweed and smartweed. Even
quackgrass, that tough perennial.
Of course, you can weed n feed with AAtrex 4L, if you
like. Or have your custom applicator do it for you. -m
Either way, you’ll be getting top-notch weed , \
and grass control. With AAtrex 4L. / \

deliver a tribute to Stein,
recognizing his many con
tributions to the modern egg
Donald Horn of York, Nema
director, thanked his fellow
directors for their decision to
bring their meeting to the Penn
sylvania area. He stressed the
fact that U.E.P. had passed
through a rough time of testing
but is now ready to grapple with
fresh problems.
Horn stressed the caliber of
capable leadership in U.E.P. and
Nema, behind which Penn
sylvania and Mid-Atlantic
producers will rally in growing
numbers. He urged the national
organization to give the highest
priority to the need for stren
thening the price discovery
process so as to insure better
producer returns . As he stated,
“U.E.P. will work in this field for
the producer because U.E.P. IS
the producer.”
Jay Greider, Mount Joy, in a
review of the bird placement
picture, bluntly told the group,
“You could be making a nice
profit today if recycling were
outlawed. There is no need to
worry about new housing. Just

refilling existing good houses can
give us more eggs than we need.”
He felt that U.E.P, should renew
its pressure on the country’s
finance and banking circles to
leave hands off new projects that
involve new but unneeded giant
size flocks.
Harry Muller of Agway, In
corporated, Nema director from
New York, outlined the vast
effort that has gone into lining up
the industry begind national
promotion check-off legislation.
Although it now appears that
introduction of a bill into the
Congress will come only after the
Presidential election, there is
still a necessity to build and
maintain solid producer support
for the measure. We must strive
to show consumers that research
and information on a prime diet
item like eggs can benefit them,
At the invitation of the chair
man, Nema president Lionel
Grise Jr of Massachusetts, and
Norman Hecht of Walden, New
ork, presented a bried im
pormptu talk on some of the good
work he has done as an in
dependent “egg producers’
advocate” in a market place
where our product is under in
tense competitive pressure in
volving unfair and dishonest
advertising, false labeling, and
other forms of misleading,
malicious attacks.
The conference closed with a
detailed report by Ray Delano,
manager of Egg Clearinghouse,
Inc. Delano stressed the fact that
E.C.I. is furnishing a trading
forum in which price reporters
can judge price movement with
reliance on trading FACTS, not
individual opinions. Supplies of
eggs and the need for eggs of
known quality are provided
under a bid and offer system.
Several moves are under way
to increase the amount of trading
taking place on E.C.I. One will be
the use of split bids to speed
trading. To stimulate local
trading, plans are being worked
out to permit trading of 300 case
minimum lots at a 250 mile
maximum delivery range.
Changes aimed at cutting trading
costs and otherwise simplifying
participation are being actively
Why Women Wear
Different Sizes
The National Bureau of
Standards has made standards
for sizing children’s clothing
available to clothing manufac
turers. Extension clothing
specialists at Pennsylvania State
University say this sizing is
based on studies of body
measurements considered to be
average for particular ages. But
sizing is not standardized in
women’s wear. That’s why many
women wear a different size in
different brands of clothing
Engagement Period Important
James Van Horn, Extension
family life specialist at Penn
sylvania State University, says
the engagement period serves a
number of important purposes
for the couple planning marriage.
It’s a time for the partners to talk
seriously about the kind of
marriage they want. It’s a time to
and as a couple. It’s also a time
to discuss the responsibilities
they are assuming in marriage
and a time for testing how well
they can cooperate together
under stress.
