Use of antibiotics for diseases of bees is the _latent application of the modern "wonder drugs" Prof. E. J. Anderson heads the apiary research at the Pennsylvania Agriculture Experiment Station and he reports "promising results" in using terramycin for control of one of the most serious diseases of bees—American Foulbrood.

Pullets Thrive in Close Quarters One square foot per bird was _^ alloted this year to 2,730 pullets housed in the Solar Laying House at the Pennsylvania State University Agricultural Experiment Station. High egg production, 75 to 83 per cent in winter months, indicates that they did not object to close neighbors. This is the fifth year of use of the Solar House in which the birds are roosted, fed and watered over droppings pits fitted with mechanical cleaners. Large insulated glass windows facing due south capture heat from the sun. Thorough insulation and thermostatically controlled, pressurized inlet ventilation keep winter temperatures _ around 55 degrees and the litter dust dry. (See accompanying story).
