carried in the previous primary. I
The switch in Brown County
was attributed by Brownwood
observers to political tactics by
Mr. Crump during the last few
days of the campaign, which
succeeded in dividing opposing ;
political factions in Brownwood j
on previous political issues with I
which Swanner had no connec-!
tion. These observers point to the j
fact that Swanner received 81 j
per cent of the absentee vote in 1
Brown County since these bal- ;
lots were cast before Crump’s j
Brown County campaign started. '
In Gillespie County Swanner j
received 61 per cent of the votes I
to 39 per cent for Crump. In this :
county Crump carried only two !
boxes and Swanner received par-
ticularly strong support in the1
country boxes. The Stonewall
box, for instance, gave Swanner
88 per cent of its votes.
The incomplete returns show-
ed that Crump carried 13 out of
the 17 counties reporting. The

la the heart of Texas today a beautiful
little city owes its peaceful prosperity
to a German prince who gave up a bril-
liant career to lead his humbler neigh-

But in 1842 in the young Republic of
Texas there were difficulties. Land
grants uncertain, maps inaccurate, trans-
portation difficult, not all land suitable
for colonization. Finally, after delays
that would have disheartened a less
valiant and patient idealist, Prince Carl
started with his little band for a tract
in the Colorado valley. The journey was

(From last week)
There are many pastures in
the District being deferred dur-
ing the growing season of the
better grasses. These pastures
will benefit a great deal from
the deferment. A fall deferment
could be applied to many pas-
tures now being grazed. A fall
deferment should start about the
middle of August and run until
after the .first killing frost. A
deferment during this period will
permit the summer grasses to
make a good crop and increase
their root storage and develop-
ment for the next year. It will
also permit the cool season
grasses to get off to a good start
in forage production for the win-
ter. Another good reason to de-
fer in the fall is that we usually
receive good rains during late
summer and fall. In a deferred
pasture the grasses could use all
the rainfall in the production of
cover and development of their

While a pasture is being de-
ferred is the best time to control
brush. If the brush is cut, ringed,
sprayed, or dozed during this
time the grass in the pasture has
a chance to get a head start on
the brush. Our best grasses can
be found under the brush. They
are weak at first because they
have had little sunlight. Their
root system are weak. Immedi-
ately after bulldozing, or the eli-
mination of the top growth of
brush by some other method, is
a critical period for these
They will develop rapidly if
given a chance. They are a poten-
tial seed supply for entire pas-
ture if protected. In this weaken-
ed condition, they cannot tolerate
excessive grazing pressure. They
should be watched closely be-
cause livestock prefer these good
grasses over other type of vege-

HOW TO FUMIGATE
First, level the surface of the
wheat in the bin.
Then apply the fumigant as a
coarse spray over the surface.
Apply it evenly.
Always apply the fumigant
from outside the bin. Avoid in-
haling the vapor. Avoid spilling
the fumigant on the skin or
clothing. If you get fumigant on
your clothes, take them off im-
mediately to prevent personal
Small quantities of stored
wheat can be fumigated quickly
and effectively by applying the
fumigant with a garden sprayer
or bucket pump sprayer. If you
use a garden sprayer: Enlarge
the opening in the spray disk to
the diameter of an eight-penny
nail; or remove the spray nozzle
and substitute a nozzle made of
a pipe % inch in diameter and
six inches long; flatten the spray
To fumigate a large quantity
of wheat, use a power spray
pump that will take the fumi-
gant directly from the container
in which it is purchased.
All pump fitting should be of
bronze, which resist the corro-
sive action of fumigants. Hoses
and gaskets should be of plastic
or synthetic rubber.
Use six gallons of Ethlyene
dichloride - carbon tetrachloride
(75%-25%) per 1,000 bushels
wheat stored in a wooden bin.
Use three gallons of Ethylene
dichloride - carbon tetrachloride
per 1,000 bushels wheat stored
in metal or concrete bin.
