REPORT ALL FIRES!
Chances are you'll be driving in and
through forested country. When you are,
remember: ALWAYS BE CAREFUL WITH FIRE.
One match or cigarette carelessly dropped .. . one
campfire left untended . . . can start a fire that
could burn a forest. Flames will turn a beautiful
green forest into ugly, blackened ruin in minutes.

Uncle Zeb and I have arranged
for the Amarillo Air Force Band
for our Annual Celebration, Rodeo
and Barbecue. We have been asked
to serve as a program committee
for the celebration. Also the Air
Base will furnish as with a 12 man
crack drill team, a very colorful
drill team I have been informed.
We have been informed by Wal-
ter Rogers, our congressman, that
he will be present if possible. Con-
gress is due to adjourn about this
time, but he will be unable, if
Congress is still in session, due to
j the many very important bills that
will be coming up toward the end
I of this session of Congress. Lets
hope he can be here and give us a
report on our Drought Aid Pro-
| Bert Wooldridge. Jr., has been
keeping in close touch with Walter
Rogers and other members of Con-
gress in an effort to speed up aid
and improve the aid we now have
Every once in awhile something
comes along to sort of take our
minds off of the dry weahter for
awhile. Such was the case with the
Fourth of July celebration and .pic-
nic at Clarendon. On a day like
this it does us good to get together
for little visits with old friends,
and In the fellowship together we
joke and cheer each other up and
It is just as well. The actual truth
is no worse If we laugh than It is
if we cry. Anyway, one fellow re-
marked that It was so dry down
his way that the water was only
Speaking of this picnic and the
free barbecue we would like to ex-
press our compliments to those who
had charge of the feeding; that is
especially to them. I don't think
that I ever saw a crowd fed any
better and I know, never in such a
short time. Actually in thirty min-
utes most of the serving was over
and it was rumored that more than
5000 were fed. This good feed plus
the parade, plus all the good visits
with old friends made a great day
Anyhow, how I can slow down on
my eating for a few weeks and be
ready for the big day in Claude
coming up on the 30th, 31st of
July and on the 1st of August. On
the 31st a similar Old Settlers pic
nic and free barbecue will take
place, capped off in the evening by
parades, queen contests and a wild
and wooly rodeo. Looks like on my
figure that I could just sort of
coast along until this big day. Even
if Mama insists on feeding me
sandwiches between now and then
I should make it alright. Hope that
everyone that was sort of cut-
short by the enormous amount that
I ate will come to see us and just
kinda get even. Not that there
wasn't just plenty for everybody,
but I know that there must have
been a lot less to carry away be-
cause we were there.
Talking about old times and the
good old days, we had the follow-
ing handed to us. It is a set of
working rules of a men's furnish-
ing store in California back 100
years ago. Each new clerk, upon be-
ginning his work, was handed a
set of the following rules:
1. Store must be kept open from
6 AM to 9 PM the year around.
2. Store must be swept, counters,
bases, show cases, shelves dusted,
lamps trimmed, filled and chimneys
cleaned, doors opened, pails of wa-
ter, also bucket of coal brought
in before breakfast.
3. Store must not be opened on
Sabbath unless necessary and then
only for a few minutes.

College Station—Once a good mostly reading
pasture is established, management
largely determines its productivity.
Attention given the pasture should
be equal to that given other cash
crops on the farm, says E. M. Trew,
pasture specialist for the Texas A-
gricultural Extension Service, for
pastures are a cash crop.
The objectives of a good pasture
management program should in-
clude the use of practices that will
lead to the production of good qual-
ity grazing; maintain high pro-
duction and efficient use of the
forage produced, says Trew.
Rotation glazing is of prime im-
portnace. Continuous grazing is of-

to 50 percent of the forage pro-
duced is lost from trampling or is

Rotating the grazing also gives
the plants a chance to rest and
make regrowth between grazings
and permits the plants to maintain
their vigor both above and below
the ground. Excess production, and
there should be some during the
early growing season, can be utili-
zed for either hay or silage, says
Trew. The fencing problem can be
handled, explains the specialist, by
using portable electric fences if
permanent ones are not feasible.
Another important phase of the
pastures will provide grazing when
the permanent ones arc short and
also makes possible rest periods for
the permanent pastures. Some pro-
ducers. explains Trew, use tem-
porary pastures the year-round in-
stead of the permanent type and
actually produce more beef and
milk per acre.
Finally, says Trew, the pasture
management program is made eas-
ier when only the best adapted
plants are used in the pasture;
