JANUARY GARDEN TIPS
January is the month to plant
our rose hushes. When you plant
your new rose hushes, dig the
holes large enough to he able to
spread the roots out.
Dig the hole about 3 inches
deeper than needed and mix a good
organic plant food with dirt, return
this to the hole. Also mix plant
food with the dirt you put hack
around the roots.
Rose trouble is frequently due
to faulty soil condition. The best
time to feed your bush is right
■when you are planting it.
If you can’t have a rose garden,
have you ever thought of a rose
garden with only minitature rose
hushes. Here are some you can
buy that arc very hardy:
Bo Peep—Individual stems are
longer than most miniature roses,
deep rose pink in color.
Oakington Ruby—will not grow
more than 12 inches high, deep
crimson in color.
Pixie—The most fully double of
all miniature roses, 40 or more
The heatilator fire-
place actually saves and circu-
lates the extra heat that ordinary
fireplaces waste up the chimney.
It it a hollow steel form around
which the masonry is easily laid.
Cool air is drawn from floor level,
heated and returned *o every
corner of the room.
The Heatilator Fireplace ia a
correctly designed steel form
•round which any style fireplace
can be built with greater ease and
accuracy. By eliminating usual
construction faults, this scientific
unit prevents smoking. Surveys
dtow that over half the old-type
fireplaces smoke. Build around the
Heatilator and be sure of success.
Stop in and see ihe Heatilator, or

petals on each little bloom, are
white with a flush of pink in the
Rouletti—After being last, many
years to cultivation, it was found
a few years back in an Alpine
window garden. It is very hardy
and is being used alot in rock gar-
dens and for an edging plant. It
grows about 6 inches tali and is
rose pink in color.
Red Elf—The darkest red of all
Sweet Fairy—The first minia-
ture rose with a true rose frag-
rance, dark pink color.
Tom Thumb — Deep crimson,
beautifully and perfectly formed

COMMISSIONER FOR POLIO
AUSTIN, Tex.—State Health
Commissioner Henry A. Holie to-
day appealed to Texas parents to
have their children vaccinated
now as protection against polio
this spring and summer.
"The polio season starts early
in Texas," the Commissioner
"This year, for the first time :n
history, we have a vaccine against
the disease on hand before t hi c
Texas season opens in earnest in
Mr. Holie said the vaccine's ef-
fectiveness to date has been
"Official records show paralytic
polio during 1955 struck six times
more frequently among unvaccinat-
ed children than among those
who receive prescribed amounts
of the vaccine at the proper inter
Three shots are said to give a
high level of protection against
polio: the second shot given one
month after the first shot, and the
third shot following seven months
According to that schedule, all
Texas children who received second
shots summer or fall are now ready
to have their .third shot.
The success of the vaccine was
announced April* 12, 1955, after
exhaustive nationwide studies. But
by then countless numbers of
children had already been exposed
in a raising seasonal incidence.
Result: 1955 was pretty much an
ordinary year for polio for the
nation as a whole, despite the fact
that Texas’ 1955 season was below
the 5-year median.
Too, vaccine was in short sup-
ply during those early days, and
production difficulties unsettled
public confidence in the product.
Both these problems have since
been overcome, Dr. Holie pointed
out. Supplies are increasing daily,
and, concerning production safe-
guards, “health and medical men
agree that the vaccine is as safe
as human hands can make it.”
Thps. L- Taylor returned to
Rocksprings, Sunday evening, from
Austin, where he had been with
Tom Bill. Mrs. Taylor remained
to be with Tom Bill a few more
days, but expect* to return borne
this week. Tom Bill is improving
daily. Extent of hia paraly*is is still
not known as be is regaining use
of some of the muscles in his
toes and is able to breathe a lit-
tle with his right lung. He has
use of his left arm but hia legs
and right arm are affected.

SHIPS AND THE
LONE STAR STATE
The Committee of American
Steamship Lines has been making
a series of studies to fin^j out just
what benefits various regions of
this country derive from foreign
trade. The latest deals with Texas
—and it certainly proves that the
merchant ship is a powerful asset
to the Lone Star State.
One million Texans have jobs
that benefit directly from foreign
trade and merchant shipping, the
study states. About two-thirds of
the 500,000 Texans on the state’s
330,0p0 farms depend upon trade
carried in ocean-going ships, and
more than 54 per cent of Texas’
factory workers are in industries
that rely in part on overseas mar-
kets. A farm twice the size of
Rhode Island would he needed to
grow the 860,000 bales of Texas
cotton exported in ocean-going
ships in 1953—and that was a poor
year, twice that volume having
been shipped abroad in 1951. Prac-
tically every manufacturing in-
dustry in Texas is dependent upon
ships to import needed raw ma-
terials. During 1954 Texas ports
bandied about SI,300,000,000 in ex-
ports and imports, not counting
some $100,000.000 worth of Depart-
ment of Defense shipments. As the
study states, "Ships, American
ships, are the global arteries 'of
Texas livelihood. They carry a
constant world-wide flow of ex-
| port-import cargoes to maintain
I jobs, crop sales and industrial ex-
pansion for Texans.”
This Texas situation is far from
unique. As other studies have pro-
ven, the economic welfare of every
section of the country—including
those farthest from the oceans—
depends heavily upon foreign trade
and the U. S. merchant marine.
AUSTIN, Tex.—The sordid side
of the recent hunting season in-
cluded four persons fined for sell-
ing deer, was revealed in the latest
arrest report announced by the
Director of Law Enforcement for
the Texas Game and Fish Com-
The new compilation showed 462
arrests during December with all
but 57 of those charged, paying
fines ranging from $5.00 for tres-
passing to $200 for possession of
game birds before legal season
opened and the same fine for shoot-
ing deer from an automobile. Fines
•paid totaled $14,222.90 plus $826.23
in court costs.
The deer selling prosecutions
involved cases at Caddo, $150 tines;
Eldorado and Ft. McKavett, $100
fines and Llano, $64.
The Director of Law Enfor-
cement described the peak sea-
son arrest summary as about
average.” "The comparatively few
who invariably do something
wrong,” he observed, "must be
contrasted with the hundreds of
thousands of those who hunt for
sport and obey the law. All but a
few realize wildlife is here for
their own benefit and therefore de-
serve a fair break.”
Some of the more common of-
fenses were night hunting, 42 cases;
hunting from car, 32 cases; un-
plugged shotgun, 28 cases; killing
quail in closed season, 20 cases
and killing dove in closed season,
Seven persons were charged
with having untagged deer; eight
for shooting clucks from a motor
boat; one for hunting under license
of another; one for refusing to
permit search, one for shooting
duck with a rifle and two for
failure to keep proper cold stor-
Some of the cases involved
double trouble. A Shreveport, La.,
man paid a $100 fine for possess-
ing an untagged deer and the same
levy for hunting at night, both
plus costs. It was the same penal-
ty for a Bessier City, La., resident
and also for a Fort Worth man.
A similar combination of fines
was paid by a San Antonio man
for possession of a buck deer in
