June is Dairy Month, the time
when we stop to remember that
milk isn't meant just for babies,
but as one of nature's most per-
fect foods, containing more than
200 nutrients,isa vital part of
the entirg family's diet.
This month the Texas De
partment of Agriculture wiU
make extra efforts along with
the National Dairy Council to
focus the spotlight of attention
on the health giving benefits of
all milk products.
Approximately one million
families are financially Involved
in the dairy business from the
farm through processing and
Dairy foods supply over three-
fourths of the nation's calcium
requirements. One glass of milk,
for instance, supplies the same
quantity of calcium as 10 eggs,
or seven orangee, or seven pounds
of potatoes or two pounds of car-
rots. In fact, limitations in the
capacity of the stomach make it
virtually impossible for the hu-
man body to receive the recom
mended quantity of calcium un-
less dairy foods are regularly In-
cluded in the diet.
Over a fourth of the nation's
protein needs are furnished by
dairy food. Protein is required for
growth and repair of body tissue.
Scientists have estimated that
every seven shears—throughout
life—each body cell is replaced.
Thus the human body never does
outgrow its need for milk.
In 1962 the average person
consumed 17.9 pounds of ice
cream. 9.2 pounds of cheese and
7.2 pounds of butter. This aver-
age person consumes 1.61 pounds
of milk daily.
Boys drink more milk than
girls, regardless nf the age group.
Girls under 12 years of age.
however, drink more whole milk
than girls 12 years and over.
Povs maintain about the same
rate of whole milk consumption
Ice cream making dated back
to about the first century A. D.,
when Nero sent slaves to the
mountain tops for the required
snow and ice. Commercial pro-
duction dates hack to 1851 in
Baltimore by the hand-cranked
freezer invented in MM by
woman. Nancy Johnson.
Rutter has been churned for
thousands of years as a home
made product. The first butter
creamery established in the
United States began operation in
1878 at Goshen, New York. From
this inauspicious beginning, the
butter industry spread across the
nation to become a vital part of
Dairying is thg greatest single
source of farm income in the
nation. About 20 cents of each
dollar of cash receipts from
farm products comes from dairy-
ing. In other words, one-fifth
of the nation's agricultural in-
come is from dairying.

Card Of Thanks
We wish to thank our friends
for the many deeds of kindness
you have so generously extended
during the long illness and death
of our mother and grandmother.
W, will forever cherish these
tributes of love, and trust that
you wilt be blessed wiih friends

Jimmie Cone and Fisher Har-
rison recently attended the Tax
Assessor - Collectors Association
held in Corpus Christ).
At the convention representa-
tives of the Texas Motor Vehicle
Division explained the changes
in the license plates to beissued
The new license plates will
have a white background and
black letters. Instead of having
two lettered prefixes and four
numerals as in the past, the new
licenses will have three lettered
prefixes followed by three ntt
By the end of 1964, the Motor
Vehicle Division says that Texa*
will have exhausted its old sy
stem of numbering and that the
new system, known as thg Eng-
lish System, can provide suf-
ficient numbers for at least the
next 10 years.
In order to eliminate undesir-
able words, the vowels A. E, I,
O. and U and the latter Q have
not been used. This leaves a to-
tal of 20 letters and 10 numbers
which will provide license num-
bers for 7,920,000 passenger cars.
It was stated at the conven-
tion that an automobile is in-
volved in 90 per cent of the ma-
jor crimes committed in this
state Due to this fact and to a
three year research project con-
ducted by the Engineering De-
partment of the University of
Illinois which eluded that license
plate numbers must be at least
two and a half inches in height
to be seen at a distance of 123
feet, the. new license plate will
have larger numbers.
Cone. County Tax Assessor-
Collector, said that because of the
changes, his office would be un-
able to reserve any plates as in
the past and that licenses would
be issued on a first come, first

46 Dairies In Cherokee
Saluted During June
June is Dairy Month, the time
of year when people all over the
nation give a special salute tc?
the dairy farmers of Cherokee
County and the entire dairy in-
dustry for their vital contribu-
tion to America's economy,
health and welfare.
In its 28th year, June is Dairy
Month is the largest single dairy
food sales and information cam-
paign and one of the oldest cele-
brations in the food field.
There are 46 dairies in Cher-
okee County, part of the almost
1,500 dairies in the 62-county
Houston Milk Shed represented
by the -South Texas Producers
These dairy farmers produce
7% million gallons of milk an-
nually to supply the dairy food
needs of the nearly three-and-
one-half million persons in South
This giant industry, comprised
of hundreds of people and thou-
sands of finely-bred dairy cat-
tle, increased the economy of
the area by more than $34 million
During June is Dairy Month,
thg government, allied indus-
trieSt agricultural equipment
manufacturers and suppliers,
banks, power companies and
many more join in a "milk toast"
to the dairy industry.
Tip Given On Possible
Record Fish Catch
Officials of the Texas Parks &
Wildlife Department offer a
friendly tip to anglers concern-
ing their fish, caught in either
fresh or salt water. They say
that a fish large enough to make
the record book should never be
sacrificed to the frying pan, but
often they are.
Most anglers will fish for years
and never land a fish that will
even approach record size, but
the occasional "lunker" is some-
times caught, and from these are
records born. The fish should be
carefully weighed and measured
for reporting to the official keep-
ers of world fish records. This
year a carp weighing 74 pounds
was bagged, shattering the 55
pounds ounce record that was
set in 1952.
Saltwater records are kept by
the International Game Fish As-
sociation, and freshwater records
are deposited with the Field &
Stream Association. 383 Madison
Avenue. New York.
Too often, says the Depart-
ment. anglers fail to measure
length and girth, and often record
weight without proper witnesses
or without thought of officially
recording their catch.
