R. R. Johnson of Alto reports !
that 'oats fit into his conservation j
program nicely. Last fall Johnson t
seeded 10 acres of oats for his
dairy cows to graze, and to protect
his land from erosion. Johnson
said, "It cost me $40.00 to pre-
pare the land and seed the oats,
the seed cost $67.50, 30 sacks
5-10-5 cost $65.10, 10 sacks am-
monia nitrate cost $37.50." Ma-1
king a total cost of $210.00. "Seems
high" says Johnson; "but here is I
what the oats returned me; when |
I turned 20 cows on the oats last
January they were eating 8 bales
of hay a day, they cut down to only
4 bales per day. Milk production
increased about a can a day. For
the 120 day period I saved 430
bales of hay, at 60 cents per bale I
that figures $288.00. The can of i
milk per day at $6.70 per 100 j
brought me $684.00. A total i
gross income of $972.00 from the ]
oats." When asked if he was going j
to plant oats this fall Johnson's j
reply was: "shucks yea."

next five years in Service. He held

Reconditioning officer and Chief
of Reconditioning Services. Part
of his time was spent in such
places as Oklahoma City Univer-
sity, University of Florida and Mis-
sissippi State College setting up
Physical training and athletic pro-
grams for cadets and aviation
playing basketball. The total num-
ber of losses for his service teams
was seven. He coached and played
with men of all types including
college players, semi-pro and some
of the top professional players
such as Ray Suhl of Chicago and

During Dotson's last year in
service he played and coached in
Charleston, S. C. While there his
team won its league undefeated,
and he himself had an average of
better than 25 points per game,
and free pitch record set in game
competition of 49 successful
throws out of 58 tries.
Since Dotson has been at Rusk
his coaching has been largely in
a substitute manner but his teams
have all figured high in the win-
ning bracket. His first team lost
only two games on the local court
and those were both non-confer-

years that I have been complete-1
ly away from physical training!
and or athletic activities. I want to J
make it clear that I gave up all j
athletic duties in Rusk High
School this year after and only
after the basketball coaching job
formerly assigned to me was taken
away. I felt that if I were not;
considered qualified to coach in
the sport which I had specialized I
in and to coach a team which IJ
had already developed to the win-
ning point, I would certainly not
be considered qualified to build j
teams in other sports. I like sports
and have participated in most of |
the major ones, but I specialized
in just one. I like to build teams ■
but I also like to see their final ■
"I do not believe that the Rusk !
High School basketball team
should have any difficulty what so-
ever in winning its half of the
conference for the next two years.
Last year it won second in the
Southern halt' suffering only two
close defeats. Both of these losses
came from the Southern half win- j
ners which according to reports', |
lost their first six players. Giving
up a team in this manner is to me
the same as working a cotton crop
through all its stages until it is
made and gathered and then giv-
ing it to someone else to market.'
Dotson played two years of high
school basketball at Summerfield.
While he was in the tenth grade,
he entered Jr. College where he
played four years. He played three
more years in senior college. Dur-
ing his time in college, he played
on one undefeated team, two con-
ference championship teams, one
state championship team, and one
S.W.A.A.W. championship team.
He was captain of the Jr. College
team that won the state champion-
ship in 1936, and also of the
Senior college team which went
the semifinals of the National,
A. A. U. in 1939. Dotson made four
all-conference teams, one all state
team and one all S.W.A.A.W.
team. He sot a now conference
