NOTICE OF MEETING A.R.B.A.
STATE REPRESENTATIVES
VOLUME TWO
There will be a meeting of all State Representatives present at the coming convention at Fort Worth, Texas.
The purpose of this meeting is to present and consider the many ideas received and from them formulate a plan of operation in order that this group may become a truly representative body of the American.
While all representatives have been contacted by letter very few responded. while it has been intimated that this group to a large extent had no idea what was expected of them, what their duties were. A few have used ideas of their own, have attended their local club meetings, have called attention to those present to the fact that the A.R.B.A, as the parent organization was interested in their problems, induced some to join. Representatives who are registrars have in various ways encouraged registrations. These are the few, the very few in fact who appreciate their appointment and take it seriously. With all representatives taking their appointment seriously there is no reason why considerable additional progress cannot be made, not only for the A.R.B.A, but the entire industry.
In the matter of making appointments several suggestions have been received, among them to consider local club suggestions as to whom they wish to be appointed to become a sort of go-between between their club and the American and in this way all concerned benefited.
By all means attend this meeting at Fort Worth, which will be held Tuesday October 11. at 1:30 P.M. and help get the ball rolling.

How fast will he grow?
How much feed will it take for him to produce a pound of meat? How can this amount be reduced to cut feed-cost dollars? Purina Rabbit Research, headed by Dr. Paul E. Kifer, works for you to answer these basic questions.
“You know,” said Dr. Kifer, “we recently opened a new 84-doe research rabbitry on the Purina Research Farm, Gray Summit, Missouri. With this commercial-type setup,” he continued, “we stepped up our research pace to continually increase the efficiency of the Purina Rabbit Program.”
A recent 14-month test of Purina Rabbit Chow at Purina’s research rabbitry demonstrated the following results:
Average live litter size (at kindling) 7.9 Average number of rabbits weaned 7.2 Average weight per rabbit at 8 weeks 4.1 Feed conversion per rabbit weaned 3.46 (includes all of the doe's feed)
Rapid growth and low feed conversion make Purina’s Rabbit Feeding Program a real bargain. Give it a try. See for yourself how practical and economical it is.
Visit your local Purina Dealer soon. Make his Checkerboard Store headquarters for your rabbitry supplies.
Only a few hours old, this little fellow is already on a Purina research experiment. How fast he grows and how economically he gains will be regularly recorded by Otto Stricker, who’s weighing this youngster.

"MEET ME AT THE FT. WORTH CONVENTION OCTOBER, 10th to 13th, 1960"
Again it is time to be thinking about our 1960 National Rabbit Convention. This year we are honored to have the Good People of the Great State of Texas to act as Host. I know from experience that the People of Texas will have one of the best Conventions ever held for the American Rabbit Breeders Association.
In Texas there are many Local Clubs that make up the Texas State Association and from what I have seen and been told nothing has been spared to show you a good time. At this National Convention you will learn of the many business transactions that the A.R.B.A. Board of Directors has handled since the last convention.
You will see on display most all Breeds of Rabbits that are recognized by the Standards of our Association. You will see the improvements that have been made in our Rabbits since last Convention Show. Nowhere will you be able to see as many Rabbits under one roof as you will see at Ft. Worth. YOU WILL SAY—WHAT A WONDERFUL SHOW. I am told by the Convention Show Committee that they are expecting to break all records this year by having the largest number of entries ever in a Convention Show. It is not impossible for these Texas People to come up with 5000 entries.
I personally know each member of this Convention Committee and I know that they are working very hard so that you may enjoy your stay in their State. I have been in Texas on two different occasions since the last Convention and I have talked to some of the Committeemen and have learned of their plans and I know that they are not leaving a stone unturned to show
you a good time. I am well pleased with the progress that has been made and I am looking forward to one of the best A.R.B.A. Conventions ever held.
There will be something doing all the time. The World’s largest Rabbit Show. A.R.B.A. Business meetings. Business meetings of all the Specialty Clubs that are Chartered under the A.R.B.A. Meetings of some of the Local Clubs from different States. A big Banquet which will be attended by 700 or 800 Rabbit Breeders. The Committee has arranged entertainment of all kinds for your enjoyment. THERE WILL BE FUN FOR ALL WHO ATTEND. Oh! yes before I forget the Committee has arranged something NEW AND SPECIAL. I can not tell you what it is as I have been asked by the Committee to let it be a surprise but I will tell you this much it has never been done before that I know of at one of our Conventions so if you want it to be said that you attended the A.R.B.A. Convention where this Special happened be there and I am sure that you will be surprised as well as pleased.
Last but not least here you will be able to see and talk to many friends whom you have not seen for years and too you will have the pleasure of meeting many New Rabbit Breeders who are attending the Convention for the first time. Now is your chance to attend one of the best Conventions ever held by the American Rabbit Breeders Association. Meet and know your Officers they will be glad to take time to talk to you and help you all they can. I will consider it a personal favor if you will come up to me, shake my hand and let me know you. MEET ME AT THE CONVENTION IN FT. WORTH, TEXAS, OCTOBER 10th. to 13th. 1960.
Sincerely yours,
“Many thanks for your prompt shipment of our order.”

WE WILL MISS THEIR GUIDANCE
During the past year, death has called many of those who were pioneers in the rabbit business. These men who have passed on have helped us greatly. They made mistakes sure, and these mistakes are helpful to those of us who are left to carry on this work. While these great men who were among us, working with us a short time ago are gone, they will never be forgotten for what they have left us to work with. Benefiting by the mistakes of the past, we should make good progress towards the betterment of the rabbit business. While we will miss the guidance of those who have passed on, it is gratifying to notice that we have some very fine young men and some of the older men coming on who will make history in the rabbit world. We have a number of new registrars started who are doing a real job and it is a real pleasure to work with them. Still other fine people are now working towards a registrar’s license. And quite a number of our registrars are now working towards their judge’s license. These fine people will make wonderful replacements for those greats who have passed the great divide.
It is very gratifying to note the interest of these fine people who will be serving our Association and the rabbit business in the future. We have a real struggle ahead of us because of so many other attractions such as golf, bowling, baseball, football, to say nothing of television and motion pictures which are attracting large numbers of young people who are seeking a hobby in these modern times. And the commercial raiser who is being driven out of the cities and town because of the rigid health laws. Let us fight to bring out the wholesome nutritious value of rabbit meat. Nor can we let the public forget that the raising of rabbits offers a relaxing hobby which takes us outdoors and gives us many interesting and fascinating problems in our effort to produce the perfect rabbit. It is interesting to note some of these young fellows who are falling in the battleline and putting their shoulder to the wheel to help the ARBA promote the raising of rabbits as a business as well as a hobby.
One of these young registrars who is just about ready to qualify to make application as a judge and I had the pleasure to talk to a short time ago had his young son with him and listened to our conversation very closely. In getting young father to discuss the Standard of Perfection, I was pleasantly surprised at the fine knowledge he had of the Standard and its application.
I am sure that a great number of us do not nearly have the understanding of the Standard that this young man has. After talking with the father, I turned to the young son, about 8 years old. We walked over to the Dutch Aisle in the show and the boy surely could tell what was wrong with Dutch and describe every marking, also tell about type and color too.
I am sure these younger registrars and judges will in time be well qualified to lead our judging staff in guiding the rabbit raisers in producing better rabbits for meat, fur and fancy.
The type of these new registrars and judges leads me to believe that the AR BA will grow and prosper in the years to come. To these new people who have qualified as registrars and judges, let me say it’s no easy task to carry on this work, but it’s interesting. I am sure all of you will enjoy the work and put every effort forth to make a better ARBA so that more can be accomplished for the American Rabbit Raiser.
See you at Fort Worth in October !!!!

FORT WORTH TEXAS. October 10 to 13, 1960 Once again finds Fort Worth, Texas the Host City of the same association now known as the American Rabbit Breeders Association. How many of those present in 1929 will be a-mong those present in 1960? We know but two who The Good Lord willing will attend. One, Judge Oscar F. Schultze. The other, Edward H. Stahl. Mr. Schultze will represent the A.R. B.A. in the capacity of Director, and Mr. Stahl now as was the case in 1929 as this organizations Vice-President.
And so. The A.R.B.A, carries on. As the years past there are many new faces taking the place of those who for one reason or another leave the scene, some to the place from where there is no return, others lose interest in rabbits and thus fade out of the picture.
Now may we review briefly what has taken place in the 31 years between the two mentioned conventions. While considerable progress has been made there is a feeling in some quarters that there is still much to be done and as matters now stand it appears that some very important decisions will be made at Fort Worth.

FORT WORTH TEXAS. December 9 to 13, 1929 was the convention city of the American Rabbit & Cavy Breeders Association. The Judges were Reeder, Garlend, Rust, Fehr, Osborn, Stoner, Stodell, Kerr, Storms, Schultze, Griffin and Gilbert. This was 31 years ago. There are still some who remember the above named judges, some of them have passed on, others are no longer identified with rabbits or rabbit affairs, the one remaining in Judge Oscar F. Schultze.
We are apt to feel that what has proven successful in the past, will continue to function successfully, we should hang on to that which is good, make it work better and at the same time have an open mind to any and all suggestions. Who knows, someone may somehow come up with an idea that will be worth trying. We have heard, we have read about “objectives” and there are many. About “Constructive Progress” etc. many of the proposals and suggestions have been very good,
but it appears that there is always something that prevents the carrying out of any program because of two things that are necessary, one a detailed practical and workable plan worked out beforehand, the other, someone with the ability, the time and inclination to put them into operation.
TEXAS. The eyes of the rabbit world are upon you.

Cowtown, U.S.A. Your Host 1960
By the time you read this most of you will have already made your plans to attend or not attend the “Golden Jubilee” convention. A.R.B.A, is fifty years old and we here in ‘Cowtown’ Texas are very proud to have been selected as the site for such a historical event. We have the facilities here and have tried to plan as nice if not the best convention we have ever had. In past articles here in the bulletin and also in the magazines there has been a lot of bragging and a lot of blood and thunder but we have only been trying to attract attention so that more would direct their thoughts toward attending our convention. Some of the bragging was hot air and some was not, we hope that we can live up to the truths and the bragging alike only, time will tell.
For the folks who have been slow in getting in their hotel and banquet reservations we can take these up to two weeks before your arrival date and still give you confirmations on the rooms. We can go up until the day of the banquet but would appreciate it very much if they were in early. Follow the Golden Rule and send in your reservations to us the same as you would if you were the reservation chairman. Mrs. Doris Jones of 6205 Guilford, Ft. Worth, Texas will be ready, willing and able to handle them. All she asks is get them to her
in time to do something about it. She will try and get you exactly what you want. If you are late and want one real bad then call her (paid) at JE 5-7910.
For the folks staying in the Motels we have tried in almost every case to place you on U.S. Highway 80. That is the street the show bams are on. It is also near the Freeway for those who want to use it, Texas State Highway 550. For those staying in Texas Hotel convention headquarters, if you come in from the east get off the Hwy. 80 at Commerce or Main. If you come in on Hwy. 80 from the west get off at Cherry and proceed to 7th and on to the Hotel. If you come in from the south on Hwy. 81 it will be the same as Hwy. 80 and if you come in from any other director then get on Main Street and you will find the Texas Hotel easily.
Go to the headquarters hotel and also to the barns to drop your rabbits off before you come on down town. Use those FREEWAYS they save time and worry.
A.R.B.A. BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETINGS with President Parker presiding, the first two will be on Saturday and Sunday October 8th and 9th at 10:00 A.M. in the Oak Room of the Texas Hotel. The third and final A.R. B.A. BOARD MEETING will be at 1:00 P.M. on October 13th in the show room.

R. B. "HOP” Hopkins, General Manager, 37th A.R.B.A. Convention.
Often asked what the R.B. stands for and the reply is generally “RABBIT BREEDER.” “Hop” started raising rabbits as a youngster back in 1918 but as most kids other things got in the way like school, football, World War II, Korea and earning a pilots license. Then in 1946 got back to rabbits again after settling down at home in Fort Worth.
Hop is department superintendent of rabbits at the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show each year, was general manager of the Rabbit Roundups before consolidating it into the Fat Stock Show.
Joined American in 1948 and earned his registrars license in 1950 and after a stretch in Korea came home and earned his judges license. Has judged shows all over Texas with some in Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana. Judged New Zealand Whites at the Little Rock Convention and makes every show possible when not judging.
Has raised most every breed in the book and the only reason he hasn’t raised those is because he couldn’t get breeding stock. Specializes in New Zealand, Dutch, Beverns, Champagnes, Chinchillas and Californians.
Has bit off a big chunk in bragging that Ft. Worth convention will be the largest and best ever. We shall see.
COWTOWN (Continued from page 6) register. It is with these registrations that we will be able to go to the chamber of commerce to show them how many folks visit Fort Worth and have some kindling to build a big fire with the next time we want to invite A.R.B.A, back for a convention. So be sure and register, (at least once).
The First A.R.B.A. BUSINESS MEETING will be Tuesday night 8:00 P.M. October 11th in the Crystal Ball Room, Texas Hotel with Pres. Parker presiding. The second will be Wednesday October 12th in the Small Show Room across the street from the Show and will start at 1:30 P.M. and last as long as necessary. Pres. Parker will preside.
The A.R.B.A, banquet, the crowning of the A.R.B.A. Youth Club Rabbit
Queen will be held on Monday night at Crystal Ball Room Texas Hotel starting at 7:00 P.M.
The D-F and F-D Party will be at 7:00 P.M. in the Ming and Jade Rooms of the Western Hotel, Wednesday evening October 12th. This will last until 8:00 P.M. when the big celebration will start. LaFiesta will be the big entertainment night of the convention, will start at 8:00 P.M. and last until the dancers get tired. The same ticket
will be good for both events that night.
There are some things that I have not listed but they will be included in the schedule section of the catalog. At this writing and to get this article to Mr. Edw. Stahl in time to get it to the printer and not hold up the whole BULLETIN it is impossible to get all the loose ends into this writing. Amigos, I keep my two eyes open looking fer ya at the 1960 convention. Hasta La Vista.

A. R. B. A. OFFICIAL BULLETIN
JULY-SEPTEMBER, 1960
Resolutions to be considered at 1960 convention in Fort Worth
The following Resolutions will be presented to the members and Delegates at Fort Worth for them to consider. The Resolutions are printed each year 30 days before the convention opens to give all the A.R.B.A, members time to read them and discuss them with other breeders and members of the local clubs.
The Committee has not changed the resolutions in any way. We are presenting them just as we received them. We hope that every Chartered Club will set aside part of the September meeting to discuss the resolutions. Each Delegate will be allowed one vote for himself but each chartered club will also be allowed one vote. If no member of your club is going to attend the convention you may appoint any member any place in the nation to cast your vote. The Secretary of the local club should write a letter to secretary Blyth naming the appointed Delegate. Your letter should be signed by the local club President and Secretary.
Resolutions are presented to improve or change the Constitution of the A. R.B.A. We must all abide by the constitution and By-Laws. You as a Delegate or as an appointed representative of a chartered club will have the opportunity to express your wishes by your vote.
The Committee asks you to consider these resolutions carefully. Ask yourself this question “will it improve or retard the A.R.B.A, if adopted?” The decision is YOURS.
Signed,
E. C. Bickley, J. F. Butler, M. F. Carley, Ray Gentry, Don Reid and E. W. Murray.
RESOLUTION NO. 1
WHEREAS, the cost of paper, postage, printing and clerical help have all increased since the show sanction fees were set.

REPORT OF THE A.R.B.A. COMMERCIAL RABBIT DEPARTMENT A BULLETIN EXCLUSIVE
By Tommy Andrew, Secretary
Fast comes the time when our A.C. R.D. rounds out its first two years of activities. In two short years it has established the American Commercial Rabbit Department as the largest organization sponsoring rabbits for commercial purposes. We wish to state briefly a few of the facts that establishes this statement as a fact.
The A.C.R.D. has had a total of over 510 members since its inception.
Over 1200 personal letters have been written by your Sect, in conjunction with developing your organization.
Thousands of handbills and circulars have been distributed. Hundreds of window signs and posters have been issued. Members have profited by one of our Director’s firms with a over $17,000 advertising program in the nation’s periodicals.
The Educational Research Dept, has issued several reports instigated by the A.C.R.D. to help solve the commercial breeders problems.
Articles of instruction have been issued on what to look for in a meat type rabbit and how to judge them properly.
Reports to the membership have been made each month via the trade magazines and the A.R.B.A. Bulletin.
Hundreds of letters written by various committee members of the A.C. R.D. concerning problems held by the membership.
Brochures have been made available to the membership for helping them to sell their wares.
A set of free loan slides on slaughtering and packaging have been in constant demand and have crossed the nation four times being viewed by various clubs at their meetings.
Many valuable specials and awards have been offered by the A.C.R.D. at the proving ground of one’s herd, the National Convention Shows.
Thousands of reprints and articles have been supplied to interested parties on ideas of merchandising and raising stock.
Many displays have been originated and worked out on such things as; packaging, marketing, raising and uses of domestic rabbit.
Market forecasts have been supplied which have been beneficial to all.
Sources of supply have been sent to many inquiries.
A firm set of Rules and Regulations have been adopted that makes the A.C. R.D. an organized part of the greatest association on earth, the American Rabbit Breeders Inc.
MUCH REMAINS TO BE DONE
The Executive Committee of the A.C. R.D. realizes that much is yet to be accomplished and have laid plans for many more progressive projects. A-mong these are a number of sets of display materials that may be loaned to various Fairs and Expositions; window displays that may be used on a long term loan basis; more economical and better packaging; problems on raising and housing; marketing and merchan-
dising procedures; clarification of our Standards of Perfection in the commercial classes; a system of raising monies for a national advertising campaign to the consumer; and many more too numerous to mention.
Our President Dick Parker has mentioned on several occasions that the future of the rabbit industry lies in the commercial possibilities of the industry. Therefore, it is imperative that the A.C. R.D. receives the support of the entire membership of the A.R.B.A. We therefore, urge all Judges and Registrars to join with us as well as all interested parties who in anyway receive any recompensation from domestic rabbits, by-products or supplies for the domestic rabbit. This includes those persons engaged in the fur trade, feed suppliers, processors, laboratories, raisers, fanciers and hobbyists. Only by a volume of memberships can the A.C.R.D. accomplish the good that is sure to arise by all uniting to develop the possibilities of the domestic rabbit to its fullest.
PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
Plans for the future are extensive. Many innovations and projects will be presented at the coming Fort Worth Convention for your A.C.R.D. WILL HAVE a large booth newly decorated with many educational features at this convention for perusal of all. Many other plans will be presented for consideration of the membership and are already worked up to the point were they will merely need to be put in operation. These plans consist of marketing, raising, herd development and improvement and many other phases of the industry of particular interest to the membership.

I'LL NEVER FORGET
By Miss Sandra Kellogg 1960 Rabbit Queen
As convention time is nearing, and my reign as 1st National Rabbit Queen is about over, I’d like to send along a few words to the candidates for the 1961 A.R.B.A. Queen.
Being chosen last year was an unexpected and exciting thing. It has brought about many changes and has been an experience I’ll never forget. Receiving mail addressed to Miss A.R. B.A. has been thrilling. There’s always a feeling you’re known by everyone in the rabbit business From many of my old friends who don’t raise rabbits, it has brought much kidding and even a nickname, but even that has been an honor.
Maybe a few words of friendly advice can be of help to all of you when you’re standing up on the platform. Personality is important to everyone, especially you. Be yourself and try not to overdue in anything. People, especially judges, look for over-confidence. This gives them the feeling you’re sure no one can defeat you and many times you can be fooled and very disappointed.
Having your state and family behind you can make all the difference in the world to you when you are in front of the judges. I know myself, that even people you least expect to care really do when they see you come out on top.
THE KERN SISTERS BIG HIT AT "OZARK JUBILEE”
The Kern Sisters of Broken Arrow, Okla, members of the Broken Arrow Rabbit Breeders Assoc, and the A.R.B.A. Youth Rabbit Club recently appeared on the nationally televised Red Foley Show, the “Ozark Jubilee.” They appeared on the show the night of April 16. They sang three numbers "Funny Little Bunny”, "Easter Parade” and “It is No Secret” with Mr. Foley joining them in the latter number. Needless to say they were a big hit and have been asked back for another appearance. The girls Vickie, Bobbie, Beth, Shari and Joni have made numerous television appearances in Oklahoma as well as singing at Banquets and other occasions throughout the area. They sang for the recent National All Satin Show held in Broken Arrow sponsored by the Broken Arrow R.B.A. The group attend-
ing the Banquet were enthusiastic over the girls and the fact that they are A.R.B.A. Youth Club members. They exhibited at the National Satin Show in the Youth Division taking Best Red Satin. The girls live with their parents Mr. and Mrs. Dale Kern and grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Kern on an acreage northeast of the city of Broken Arrow, called rightly “Shangri La.” There Mr. Jesse Kern has a commercial rabbltry and Dale Kern has a caged egg laying farm. The grandparents are also active members of the Broken Arrow Rabbit Club. With a couple of Trophies already won the Kern Sisters are already looking forward to the fall shows so they can enter their Satin Rabbits.

My brother acted very nonchalant the day before the banquet. But when he gave up judging in the youth contest, the day after, because he was too excited over me winning, I realized how much it really meant to him.
So in closing, I wish each candidate from every state all the luck possible and a successful reign as Miss A.R.B.A. “1961”.

A small business can be well managed by one owner but it always happens that the opportunities for growth and advancement are greater than he can accomplish by himself. He must then induce others to share his enthusiasm and enterprise to capture this unlimited success and progress. This most certainly holds true for the growth of the ARBA and the Rabbit Industry in general. It takes salesmanship and effort on the part of each and everyone to make the ARBA a continued success.
Support the ARBA by advertising in the Bulletins and Guide Books and by the same token increasing your own sales of breeding stock. Publicize your club with constant advertising. We must remember, “THE FIRST STEP IN ANY SALE, IS THE OFFER TO SELL”.
A building, a machine or a tool is acquired for the benefit or service it will render. It is no different from the motive which induces the person to advertise. Selling represents the fence that separates what we have to sell from the benefits derived.
Wishful thinking has no place in the desire to build up the Rabbit Industry with a larger membership. It is the old saying that, “if wishes were horses, beggars might ride”.The human mind perceives what it is looking for and blind to what it is not looking for. If, as it seems certain, advertising is the first fundamental step in building up a much larger ARBA membership, then let’s give it much broader credit and support.
The beginners booklet has been a great getter of new members. We need the beginner for the growth of the industry and the beginner needs the ARBA. Back in history, some bright person discovered a better method of

hunting. Instead of trying to catch game with his bare hands, he solved his problem by first making a spear. No doubt his friends thought him crazy to stop hunting and turn to spear making, but after a days work in making his spear, he was able to go hunting and kill more game the second day than he had ever killed in a week. The
knowledge of the Rabbit Industry wrapped up in the pages of the ARBA Official Guide Book, is the tool or spear that is needed by the beginner to be successful in Rabbit raising.
