For Farm Trailers
Austin.—New license plates for
farm trailers not used for hire are
now available, according to Bob
A. Lilly, Texas Farm Bureau
Lilly said the Department of
Public Safety has advised him tha.'t
the $5.00 ticense tags are now in,
county tax coventors' offices a-
cross tthe state. Owners of farm
trailers of between 4,000 and 10,-
000 pounds gross weight must
have these tags displayed on their
trailers in acc rdance with a new
law passed during the regulai'
session of 'J)e 57th Legislature.
The law also provides a 30-m.ti.h.
Hpeed limit, but exempts trailers
up to 10,000 pounds gross from
brake t oquirementa.
The DPS indicated that it wilt
give trailer owners a "reasonable"
period of time to secure the tags
before strict enforcement begins,
Lilly said. The law became oifec-,
tive with iho Governor's signing
of House Bii[ 10S2, ''.he farm trailer
bill, on May 29, but the new tagu
were not available until just re-
Lilly said that the Texas Farm
Bureau has been attempting to
secure passage of a farm Waiter
law for severai years. He explain-
ed that the $5.00 license cost was
a compromise to forestall a veto
pf the bilt.
The TFB legislative director
said that the new law was neces-
sary to permit farmers to con-
jt'jnuc using their traiiers to haul
faun products. The DPS had warn-
ed that it< was planning to begin,
strict enforcement of trailer li-
censing iaws if a special farm
trailer law was nott) enacted this
year. Before the new taw was
passed, farmers were required by
law to obtain commercial licenses
for trailers over 4,000 pounds gross
weight even though they normally
use their trailers for otnly a few
weeks each year.
Farmers who fail to obtain
tags will be subject to a fine and
also must immediately register
their trailer as a commercial
trailer and obtain a commercial
license pla'e. A commercial li-
cense for a 10,000 pound trailer
would cost $55.00.

Apply Lime Now
For Fall Legumes
Putting lime trucks into your*
fields this summer will give you
a head a'art when seeding legume

Bennett, soil chemist, with the,
Texas Agricultural Extension
Adding lime this summer on.
your acid soils will allow more
time for the lime to correct the
acidity of the soil. If possible,
limestone applied this summer
should be worked into the soil in
order for it to react faster, points
Liming acid soils will not only
correct soil acidity but also will
supply calcium which is necessary
for good growth of most legumes.
If you are planning to establish
vetch, Crimson clover or other
tegumes this fall, check your soil,
now '%? determine whether it has
the right soil reaction and suf-
ficient calcium for best growth of
Bennett points out that the only
accurate metlnxl for determining
limestone needs is with a soil test.
Submitting a sample now will al-
low you to get your results back
early and will allow you to apply
the limestone in sufficient time fur
your fait seeded crops. Not only,
will the soil 'est indicate need,
for limestone but it will also
indicate the amount and kind of
ptam nutrients needed for good
growth. A combination of lime,
fertilizer, good seed and a good
seedbed can give good grow th and
will pay extra dividends in.

Three Deer Now
In 14 Counties
Austin — Texas hunters will be
nbte to kit] 'hrco (]ecr, the third
antlerless deer to be known as
bonus deer, in at least 11 Texas
counties, in the upcoming season
starting November 16. These are,
I counties under regua/iory author-
ity where there is an overpopula-
tion of deer, and efforts will be
jiiiade to bring sex ratio into
balance by special permit for a.
These oountties include Bandrea.
Crockett. Edwards, Llano. Mason',
Medina and Sutton counties in the;
Kdwards Plateau regulatory dis-
trict; Comal. Dimmyit and Zavata
counties in the South Texas re-
guiatory district; Freestone,
Grimes and Robertson counties i^
the Trinity-Brazos regulatory dis-.
trict; and Bosque county in the
Possum Kingdom district.
T he bonus deer t,ag must be ob-
tained from a landowner, where
the area has been designated as
Having a surplus of deer. The
harvest of doe deer will be par-
'mtted in most of the other coun-
ties under regulatory authority,
md these permits will be available
from the landowner after census
counts have been made. It is pas-
sible hhat bonus deer may bet
available in, several other countie*
v^here tire regulatory authority
takes effect after August 28. The)
bonus deer allowance will be the
first in a quarter of ia century, by
which it has been legal to kill
three deer in Texas. It is inter-'
esting to note, according to H. D<
Dodgen, executive secretary of the-
Game and Fish Commission, that
bonus deer will be permitted in
Freestone, Grimes and Robertson
Counties, which a few years ago
had been completely shot out of
deer. They were restocked undet'
a management program which has
resulted i.n the comeback.
The Commission also voted
