Six young women will be in training under the
capable direction of Cecilia John and Ina Higgins.
The former is a poultry expert, and, besides, “as
good as a man” she can drive a car, paint a house,
erect poultry sheds ...
Miss Higgins is a trained and qualified poultry
expert ... the trainees have no fees to pay; they
give their work, receive a home.
